Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R. Review: MOJO's Kick Ass Controller Comes To All Android Devices

A few months ago, I reviewed Mad Catz's first console, MOJO.

Now, Mad Catz has released a standalone version of CTRLR that can be used on any Android device (or Windows PC) over Bluetooth.

[This One Simple Trick] Calculating Your Chromecast Screen Casting Latency Is As Easy As Pulling Out Your Camera

Chromecast's new screen casting feature has a lot of us very excited, and understandably so: you can now... Android... on a gigantic screen, at the push of a button. Or touch, I guess.
