HTC Gets INK All Over That One M9 You Wanted, Calls It A Limited Edition Work Of Art

The HTC One rocked the Android landscape with a groundbreaking design. Then it got a mild evolution with the M8, and now it looks kind of the same again with the M9. Some people think it still looks great, while others are beyond bored with the design. It's not particularly easy to cough up an entirely new look, so the manufacturer has come up with something else.

It's going to stick stylish engravings on limited edition phones.

Total Commander Gets Much Less Ugly (But Still Pretty Ugly) And Vaguely Material In Version 2.6

If you haven't heard, there's an Android version of the popular desktop file manager Total Commander. It has been around for years, and through all of that time, it hasn't been a particularly pretty piece of software. Okay, it started out somewhat fine by Gingerbread standards, but successive versions of Android have not been nice to it. If you go to the Play Store right now, here's one of the screenshots you will see.

Google Brings Chrome Dev To The Play Store

In the midst of update Wednesday, Google has just pushed a brand new version of Chrome to the Play Store - Chrome Dev.

For those unaware, Google's browser comes in four main channels - Stable, Beta, Dev, and Canary. As you descend the list, you get closer to the bleeding edge. So while you can see some of what's next in Chrome Beta, the Dev channel shows what Google is working on "right now," giving a peek into "whatever code [Google's] got."

The Play Store listing of course warns that any new functionality in the Dev version of Chrome may be "rough around the edges," but Google says this release will be updated "on roughly the same schedule as other platform Dev channels."

Grab the app from the widget below and follow its updates on APK Mirror.

Report: TAG Heuer's Android Wear-Powered Watch Is Scheduled For October Or November With A $1400 Price TAG

Does the lack of $1000+ status symbols available for the Android Wear market really get you down? If it does, then start saving your pennies now. According to Bloomberg, TAG Heuer and its owner LVMH intend to release a luxury smartwatch in either October or November of this year, with a price tag expected to be around $1400. That's much, much more expensive than even the priciest Android Wear devices to date, about entry-level for a TAG watch, and approximately one tenth the price of the most expensive Apple Watch.

For The Love Of God, Stop Throwing Money At These Stupid 'Connected Cycle Pedals' On Indiegogo

Some people may not understand this, but there are things in this world that don't need to be "connected." They just don't. Case in point: these stupid connected bike pedals that have somehow managed to raise 180% (at the time of writing) of the $50,000 goal on Indiegogo. I'm pretty sure the people who are backing this don't actually ride bikes, but rather romanticize the idea of how useful something like this could be if they actually did.

DotEmu Brings Ys Chronicles 1, An Update To A Classic 80s Action-RPG, To Android And Android TV

Normally an Android re-release of a decades-old RPG means we're talking about another Squaresoft or Enix port, but this one is digging deep into the annals of Japanese role-playing game history. The Ys series (pronounced... okay, I honestly have no idea how it's pronounced) is a collection of action-RPGs that stretches across four decades and dozens of platforms all the way back to 1987. Ys Chronicles 1, an updated port of the game that began the franchise, is now available on Android from DotEmu.

You could say that using a custom ROM is akin to testing a beta product indefinitely, and in that case, using the beta version of CM Downloader previously available wasn't much of an issue. But for the more cautious ROMers among you, version 2.0 of CyanogenMod's automatic update-downloading and flashing app has gone stable.

This piece of software (formerly known as the CyanogenROM Downloader) saves CyanogenMod users, especially those who run on nightly builds, the effort of manually checking for and flashing the latest version.

Leading up to today's announcement, we saw leaks, teasers, more teasers, one leak to rule them all, and even more teasers. If there was anything you wanted to know about this phone, you already do. Only now, in big press event fashion, LG has made it official.

Okay, not everything was unveiled. One piece of information we were waiting to see confirmed was the processor. Rather than adopt the Snapdragon 810, LG has opted for the 808. It and Qualcomm boast that with this processor the device is able to get more than a full day of battery life.
