Who doesn't like games? Or charity? Or setting your own prices? If you answered "me" to any of these questions, you may take the rest of the article off. The rest of you, get ready for the Humble Bundle For Android 2! The same rules apply to the second round as the first: pay what you want, designate how much should go to charity, get licenses for all available platforms.

The list of games are as follows:

  • Swords & Soldiers
  • Canabalt
  • Zen Bound 2
  • Cogs
  • Avadon

All of these games are brand new to Android and come complete with licenses to play them on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even unlock the games on your Steam account (where available).

Hey! Good news! The F.A.A is going to take another look at its stance on "no digital devices during take-off/landing" policy. Sounds pretty promising, right? Not so fast -- this process could take... well, forever. Why is that? Because in order to change the policy, every single device would have to be tested. One at a time. On every plane in existence. No, I'm not kidding.

For example, if the F.A.A wanted to approve Amazon's Kindle for use on planes during taxi, take-off, and landing, then it would have to test every single version of the Kindle (and Fire) on every single plane, on every single airline.

Well, here's a twist for you. Apple Google has just banned Reddit Is Fun from the App Store Google Play Store due to "sexually explicit material." The author of the app has taken to (where else?) Reddit to voice his concerns and ask for advice in getting his apps reinstated. It may be a simple problem to solve, however.

The move comes shortly after Reddit Is Fun received an update to version 2.0 and was split into two apps.

Samsung, a company once known for taking far too long to release updates and source code, has really done a 180 degree turn-around over the last several months. Updates are now coming in a more timely manner, and source code sometimes hits the scene before the device it supports is even released.

Keeping up with its current approach of timeliness, Samsung has now pushed the Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source code for the international version of the Galaxy S II, which just started receiving the update one week ago.

We've heard whispers and rumors of a new Motorola device dubbed the "DROID Fighter" (no relation) heading for Verizon. Today, we've got our first look at the device via Mr. Blurrycam. The device was snapped sitting next to a DROID RAZR, highlighting the notable differences of a larger, possibly HD screen and no capacitive buttons.

It can only be assumed that this device, if released as-is, would be an Ice Cream Sandwich device at launch due to its lack of capacitive buttons.

"One Device to rule them all, One Device to find them, One Device to bring them all and finally unconfine them"

Ok so I may have taken a few liberties there, but that's what we all want, right? One device that can do everything that we require of a computer throughout our daily lives. Smartphone by day, desktop by night.

Fortunately, we aren't the only ones who think that this is a great idea; the Ubuntu team has already announced plans to transform your smartphone into a proper computer when it's placed in a docking station, and with the release of Linux 3.3, this just got easier for OEMs to do as well.

Autodesk, a clear leader in 3D design software (particularly in the fields of architecture and construction), recently released Buzzsaw Mobile for Android to Google's Play Store, bringing the awesome cloud-based project sharing functionality of the corporation's original Buzzsaw service to the palm of your hand.

For those unfamiliar, Autodesk's Buzzsaw service essentially provides cloud-based sharing for design projects and files, allowing project stakeholders to sync and view designs, 3D models, and other relevant assets with ease.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Is Google Play A Smart Rebranding Or A Bad Miscalculation?

Two years after Steve Jobs famously started the tablet race with the original iPad, they remain a controversial subject. There are those who use and enjoy them on a daily basis - some of whom consider it a necessity, others a luxury. And then there are those who consider them useless to some degree or another, not worth virtually any realistic cost.
