Phiaton Moderna MS 200 Earphones Review: These Aren't Dr. Dre's Earbuds, And That's A Good Thing

I don't do a lot of earbud reviews. In the past, the buds I've reviewed have always been Bluetooth. Thus, reviewing a set of wired 'buds was a little different for me. When it comes to headsets like the Moderna MS 200s from Phiaton ($120), it's all about the sound quality and comfort - things that matter for Bluetooth 'buds, like practicality, battery life, and ease of use are all thrown out the window. Wired earbuds are easily one of the more "analog" pieces of tech that we review, which also makes them one of the most difficult. Essentially, what "sounds good" is a very subjective assessment, because, simply put, what qualifies as "good" to me may be "meh" to you.

Top Gear Stunt School Revolution Review: Almost As Bad As Jeremy Clarkson's Hair

I want to start this review by saying I love Top Gear. I really, truly do. The show's had its ups and downs, but I've seen every one - twice. So when I heard that the only mobile game to be graced with the trademark television series' name was headed for the Play Store, I was actually a bit excited.

It then took my hopes, shot them in a dark alley, and stuffed them in the trunk of a rental PT Cruiser. God, this game is bad. I don't even know what the developers were thinking when they unleashed this unabashed pile of feces to the masses.

[Try This] AntennaPod Is A Free, Holo-Themed, Open Source Podcatcher

When it comes to podcatchers on Android, there aren't a whole lot of good, free options. The current top dogs - BeyondPod, Doggcatcher, and the like - can cost upwards of five dollars, which is a bit of stretch for anyone who only casually listens to one or two key podcasts (like the AP podcast for example). That's really what makes AntennaPod so special - it has a very nice, Holo-theme layout, offers many of the features that users really want in a podcatcher, is completely ad-free, and is open source. That's a pretty impressive list right out of the gate.

[The Weekend Poll And News Roundup] What Twitter App Are You Using?

Welcome to the Android Police Weekend Poll and News Roundup. For last week's poll and roundup, see Do You Put Your Phone In A Case, Skin, Bumper, Or Go Bare? For this week's podcast, Episode 40, head here.

If you're looking for a Twitter client on Android, you won't be pressed for a lack of choices (just look at the poll options below). But what you may be pressed for is equivalent functionality, speed, and features across those various options. Everyone has specific needs when it comes to social media, and this has led to a rather large 3rd party Twitter client ecosystem.

[Update: Nexus 7 (Grouper) And GSM Galaxy Nexus (Maguro), Too] Official CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies Now Rolling Out For The Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700)

Update: It looks like the TF700 isn't the only device new to the CM10.1 world; nightly builds are also available for the Nexus 7 (grouper) and GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus (maguro).

The CyanogenMod team has been steadily working on getting Android 4.2 ready for nightly status, with builds already available for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The newest member of the CM 10.1 family is ASUS' flagship 10" tablet: the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700).

[Deal Alert] Sprint 16GB GSIII Only $0.01, 32GB For $50 For New Customers From Amazon Wireless

Hot on the heels of Best Buy's daily deal, Amazon wireless has dropped the prices of all its GSIII models to match - with one exception. Instead of knocking Spring's GSIII down to $50/$99 for the 16/32GB respectively, it's now $0.01/$50 for new customers. That's basically a free GSIII!

Reddit User Installs An Inductive Charging Pad Into His Desk, The Process Looks Stupid-Easy

Inductive charging is quickly becoming one of those clutch features that everyone wants in their next smartphone. Since a few phones - like the Nexus 4 and HTC Droid DNA - already have the feature, one crafty reddit user decided that he wanted to install his wireless charger inside of his desk. Neat, right? He also took a few snapshots along the way, highlighting just how easy the process was.

We're hearing reports that the charger used in the project - the Nokia DT-900 - has issues with the Nexus 4. If you plan on trying this or something similar, you'll probably want to spring for a different charger.

The Original Samsung Galaxy S (I9000) Gets Official CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies [Updated]

Looks like we jumped the gun on this one - turns out regular 10.1 nightlies aren't actually yet available for the GS, and the solitary build was triggered manually as a test. Sorry to get your hopes up, guys!

Up to this point, we've only seen official CM 10.1 nightlies show up for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, but an unlikely device just got its first taste of Android 4.2: the original Galaxy S (I9000). The builds are currently marked as "experimental," so if you're looking for something stable, this probably isn't the best direction to go.

[New Game] Eufloria HD Brings Soothing Space Plants From The Humble Bundle To Google Play

The Humble Bundle for Android isn't just a great way to get cheap indie games and help charity - it's also shaping up to be a pretty great platform for launching Android ports. Take Eufloria: it's been available on Steam for PC since 2009, but once it came to the Humble Bundle, it was made available for Mac and Linux too. Now the game has been released to the Google Play Store. Five bucks gets you all the interstellar botanical strategy that you can handle.

If you're new to Eufloria, it's in the "chill" genre that seems so pervasive these days.
