Asphalt 8 Airborne Review: You'll Believe A Car Can Fly

Gameloft has released eight games in the Asphalt series in just under nine years. If practice makes perfect, then Asphalt 8 should be nothing less than the greatest racing game ever made. It doesn't quite live up to that lofty goal, but as a top-tier Android game and an impressive arcade-style racer in its own right, it's worth your attention even if you're only casually interested in racing games.

Between the Hot Wheels physics, licensed cars, online play, and gorgeous presentation, Asphalt 8 is worth a lot more than its $1 asking price.

Kyocera's Waterproof Hydro ELITE Launches On Verizon Online August 29th, $99 With A Two-Year Contract (After $50 Rebate)

My first two smartphones, the Milano and the Rise, were both made by Kyocera, so I have a soft spot for the brand. The company's handsets generally may not be high-end, or even midrange, but they're good for average folks who don't live and die by the number of pixels their phone is able to push or flip tables if there's a momentary stutter when switching between home screens. Kyocera's latest offering, the Hydro ELITE, will launch online at Verizon Wireless this Thursday, August 29th, and it's quite an improvement over the company's usual offerings.

Snapchat Launches Android Beta Program Using Play Store Testing Mechanism, Here's How To Join

Snapchat is now the latest prominent app to start using the Play Store beta testing mechanism to get new features in front of users sooner, something we've also seen from Facebook. If you haven't already heard of Snapchat, think of it as a service that could have saved Anthony Weiner a great deal of headache. Users use it to send photos, videos, and text messages that automatically delete from the recipient's device and the server after a set amount of time.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids, Designed Specifically For... Kids

The built-for-kids tablet market is growing at a pretty rapid pace, with companies like Fuhu and OLPC leading the pack – until now, anyway. Samsung just announced the newest member of the Galaxy family: the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids. This is Samsung's first real foray into the world of children's tablets, but judging by the included software features, it looks like the company is coming out swinging.

The GT3K will come pre-loaded with "top ranked" children's apps and a Kid's Store filled with specially curated software to "drive the educational possibilities of technologies for kids." Like with Fuhu's Nabi line of tablets, parents will be able to select all of the apps that they want to be available for their kids – the rest will be hidden.

Canary Smart Home Security Device Finishes Indiegogo Campaign With Nearly 20x Its Fundraising Goal

Relying on crowd funding is inherently risky. Regardless of whether a project's on Kickstarter or Indiegogo, some never get a fraction of the funding they aim for. Others fall slightly short or, if they're lucky, barely manage to crawl over the finish line. Still, a select few completely blow the doors off. The Canary, pitched as the first smart home security device for everyone, has now successfully acquired just shy of two million dollars in funding, far exceeding its goal of $100,000.

She confirmed that the Galaxy Note III will be unveiled at the upcoming September 4th "Unpacked" event (which is hardly a surprise), and also that the often-rumored Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be in attendance.
