Yahoo Mail For Android's 5.0 Beta Comes With A Bedazzling Material Makeover

Many of us would be surprised just how many people still sign into Yahoo accounts. The tech giant may not compete at the same level of a certain other search engine, but millions of people continue to store their mail on its servers. A number of them will soon sign into the Android app and come across an updated interface. And it's a pretty one, so to speak.

Showtime's Cable Subscription-Free $11 Monthly Plan Comes To Android In The Form Of A New App, Includes Android TV Support

You can now stream Showtime to your Android device for $11 a month. You don't need a cable subscription. All you need is a credit card, a compatible device, and the newly-released app.

For years now, customers who wanted to stream the likes of Showtime or HBO over the Internet have only had the option to do so if they paid for access in addition to an expensive cable plan. Fortunately 2015 has seen a shift. The option to pay $15 a month to get HBO Now without dealing with all that other tomfoolery launched on iOS in Spring before coming to Android this summer. During those hot months, Showtime announced it would let you do the same for $11―just not on Android yet.

Verizon Launches Go90, A Free Video Streaming Service With A Social Spin Aimed At Mobile Devices

Companies generally hope to entice you to use their gadgets and networks to watch the likes of YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu. But Verizon Wireless isn't content to let you stream someone else's shows over its network using a phone it sold you. You should be watching its content. So to get you on board with the idea, it has released go90, a new video streaming app.

Go90, a reference to the way you rotate your phone when watching video, is an eclectic mix of TV shows and YouTube clips.

NVIDIA Pushes Update 2.0 To SHIELD Android TV, Brings GeForce Now, Support for 4K Android Games, New Codecs, And More

Yesterday, NVIDIA announced GeForce Now, the company's new game streaming service. Today, that service is available on all SHIELD Android TV devices as part of a massive new OTA that's chock-full of stuff.

The star of the show is undoubtedly GeForce Now, which brings over 50 streaming PC games to SHIELD. The service is free for the first three months to all SHIELD owners, and after that it'll run $7.99 a month, which is an extremely reasonable price for all-you-can-eat gaming (at least in my opinion). Aside from Now, however, Update 2.0 also brings support for native Android games in 4K; here's a list of what will run in Ultra HD right out of the gate:

  • Beach Buggy Racing
  • Bombsquad
  • Hardwood Solitaire IV
  • Riptide GP 2
  • Kosmik Revenge
  • Video Poker Duel
  • Leo's Fortune
  • Machinarium
  • Meltdown
  • Never Alone
  • Samurai II
  • Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders


That's a relatively short list for now, but more developers should be adding 4K to their titles moving forward.

Amazon, Gunning For "Biggest Jerk" Award, Will Be Banning Chromecast And Nexus Player Listings From Its US Store

If you have a Chromecast or Android TV, you've probably noticed the one big glaring hole in content on those devices: Amazon Instant Video. Now, it seems more unlikely than ever that these devices will be getting AIV support, because Amazon is apparently preventing sellers on the US site from listing them altogether, and will remove all existing listings for the devices on October 29th.

LG Announces The V10 With Dual Front-Facing Cameras, Manual Video Capture, And Secondary Display (Updated With Carrier Info)

Mere hours ago we saw LG's new V10 phone leaked courtesy of @evleaks, and now LG has made it official.

The V10, which will be shown off at an event in NYC tomorrow, has the hallmark characteristics we've seen leaked and hinted before - a dual front-facing camera setup and a secondary display along the top of the device.

The dual front shooters, LG says, are for 120-degree selfies (or "standard" 80-degree selfies if you wish), capturing wide-angle photos with minimal distortion.

[Deal Alert] Country Album By Cole Swindell Free On Google Play Music (Only In Murica)

There was a time in my life,

When I knew little strife.

I spent my days cruising the road,

Freedom was my only load.

I’d play my songs nice and loud,

Singing along with the crowd.

I had lots of money to spend,

And the nights never seemed to end.

Jump forward in time eight years,

A wedding, two births, lots of laughs, and some tears.

My freedom is gone, my money is tight,

The baby wakes me up crying at night.

Now I ain’t got no time to be alive,

Except for my daily morning drive.

It’s then that I listen to the songs Google gave me for free,

And I think about old times and how things used to be.

Hands-On With The (Turned Off) LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition

Though LG said it wasn't the "star" of today's event, the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (a mouthful) did make a cameo at the presentation. We got a few minutes to play with the device hands-on, but eyes-off - the watches on display were actually powered off, so we couldn't even use them in demo mode. Still, it's worth taking a look at least at the form factor of the watch.
