[Weekend Poll] Cyanogen Inc's New Logo: Hot Or Not?

This weekend's poll's an easy one - Cyanogen Inc's got a new logo, and you'll see it just below.

nexusae0_brand_reveal_11

It's a decidedly more industrial, formal look than their old logo, which features the now-basically-defunct mascot Cid. It also doesn't exactly look like a software company's logo to me - more like a biohazard waste disposal consortium. It just doesn't seem like a good fit. Then again, it's just a logo, and it's a pretty opinion-based discussion, so, let's get subjective - vote in the poll below and let us know what you think of the new branding.

In a bit of unexpected news, the Verge has just posted images and descriptions of Android TV, based on information provided to them by an unnamed source.

Android TV, according to the Verge, is Google's renewed bid for the living room, looking to put Google TV in the rear view mirror, and deliver content in a cohesive experience that users will actually want to do. It does this by focusing on being an entertainment platform, rather than making your TV function like a large tablet with a remote.

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) Now Available For The Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is the Android equivalent of the Ford Excursion: comically oversized, incredibly expensive, and its claims to "utility" are questionable at best. (Also, it might not get more than one major release.) But if you've got one, you're probably a hardware enthusiast, which means you also might be game for some modifications or custom ROMs. Well now you can: the folks at the Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) have just released a version of their custom recovery for your gigantic tablet.

CyanogenMod 11 Snapshot M5 Builds Now Rolling Out To Supported Devices

The folks at CyanogenMod take a long, long time to develop a custom ROM before they'll slap a "stable" label on it. They don't make any apologies for this, but if you're particularly impatient for a more reliable version of CM 11 (Android 4.4), you can check out the latest snapshot builds. The "M5" builds are rolling out for some of the better-supported devices at the moment, and more should be available throughout the day.

Heads Up For Developers: Have An App Or Game You Want To Promote? Use Presskit

This post is specifically for app and game developers. Ladies and gentlemen, let's peek behind the editorial curtain for a bit. Here at Android Police, each writer sifts through hundreds of emails every day. A good portion of these are from people trying to promote an app, game, or service. Someone at AP reads each and every one of them, but to be perfectly honest, it's impossible for us to follow up on all of them.

Flixster App Updated With Chromecast Support And MicroSD Card Downloads For Samsung Tablets

Chromecast support is becoming something of a fashion item: all the cool kids (or at least the cool media-focused Android apps) have it. The latest app to add support for Google's tiny streamer is Flixster, known for its up to date selection of movie trailers and tight integration with sister service Rotten Tomatoes. Notably, Flixster also supports the UltraViolet system, giving users an alternative to VUDU for their digital copy collection.

Soundfreaq Sound Rise (SFQ-08) Bluetooth Speaker/Alarm Clock Review: I Love This Damn Thing

We've reviewed many Bluetooth speakers here at AP (I myself have penned many of them), but I'm not sure we've ever taken on anything like the Sound Rise from Soundfreaq. It's an inherently different sort of speaker, as it's really more than just a Bluetooth speaker – it's a Bluetooth alarm clock.

I'd like to think there are two kinds of people in this world: those who use their phone as an alarm clock, and those who have a more traditional buzz buzz buzz alarm clock.

Amazon Introduces Dash Shopping Accessory, Adds Integration To AmazonFresh Android App

Amazon wants to keep you spending money, and as a commerce company, it has the benefit of having no reason to hide this fact. Its recently announced FireTV set-top box marks a play for the television, but that's potentially small change compared to the money to be gained from locking in most of a person's grocery shopping.

The AmazonFresh grocery service is still only offered in parts of California and Seattle, but yesterday the company added support into the Amazon Android tablet app, and now it's rolling out a new product that goes even further to reduce the amount of time it takes to get an item into your virtual cart.

[Deal Alert] Asus Cube With Google TV For $49.99 From Groupon, Plus $20 Rebate And Free Shipping

Okay, so Google TV didn't work out exactly as Google probably hoped it would. While not technically dead, Google TV is at least on life support while Google pushes the $35 Chromecast dongle. If you still want to give Google TV a shot, Groupon is offering an Asus Cube for less (after rebate) than the cost of a Chromecast.
