Today Microsoft has announced its Wireless Display Adapter, a Chromecast-sized dongle that plugs into the back of your TV, monitor, or projector and enables you to mirror content from any Miracast-enabled device. It's not the first product of its kind on the market, but Microsoft's offering is a small and sleek option, and it just so happens to be compatible with Android devices.

Last year Motorola announced the Droid phones alongside the Moto X, but this year the new Moto X is about to hit the shelves and there's still no official word on new Droid phones. However, a Google+ posting by HeloMotoHK claims to show the rumored Droid Turbo in all its glory. Yep, it still looks like a Droid.

Now that everyone seems to be carrying around smartwatches, Bluetooth headphones, and various other bits of electronic detritus, we need ways to keep them charged up when they inevitably die before the end of a long day. Samsung wants your Galaxy phone or tablet to be the backup battery for other stuff, like a Gear watch, via the brand new Power Sharing Cable. It's a little double-sided MicroUSB cable that allows one gadget to charge another, without any AC adapter or portable battery pack.

HTC Scribble is now available in the Play Store. What's that? You've never heard of HTC Scribble? You're in good company, then - it's one of those little add-on features in Sense that doesn't get much press... on account of it not being very useful. Scribble is basically a digital scrapbooking app made to highlight some other features of Sense, like Zoe and some rudimentary stylus support. The app was introduced on the plus-sized HTC One Max, but may be available for other One devices.

Plex makes streaming media from your PC or server to another device staggeringly easy. It's also a killer deal with on-the-fly transcoding, Chromecast, automatic library organization, and a ton of other features for just a few bucks per month. It was such a good deal that Plex decided the cost of a premium Plex Pass subscription should go up a little. The upside being current subscribers can lock in their rate.

[Heads up: to use this application you'll need root permissions on your phone or tablet. If you don't have them, you can stop reading here. Now, we continue with our regularly scheduled blog post.] Yesterday we found out about a new Google Now card that can show you changes in the prices of airfare based on recent searches. At least one developer isn't interested in waiting for Google to rollout new Now cards, and found a way to switch them on manually - even the ones that aren't public just yet.

Update: We're getting a few reports that this initial build (213.44.1) may be a soak test, despite the fact that our tipster isn't part of the current soak program. If that's the case, it may be a few days to a few weeks before regular users see the OTA update.

"Better late than never" is almost never said with real sincerity, and such is the case with the latest build of Android for the T-Mobile Moto X.

As a Dropcam user, I often wish I could get a little bit more than an activity notification on my Android Wear watch. I don't want to watch the video feed for 10 solid minutes, but the option to quickly see what my camera is seeing in an instant would be amazing. If you're a tinyCam user, you just got that luxury. I'm jealous.

As of version 5.6, you can now say "OK Google, start tinyCam monitor" to your Android Wear watch and get a quick glimpse of the video feed.

With the obvious exception of watch faces themselves, there aren't many parts of Android Wear that actually benefit from the round screens of the Moto 360 and the upcoming G Watch R - not even Google's official apps. A new and relatively humble tip calculator is the first Wear app I've seen that makes really excellent use of the extra radial space. It's called (appropriately) Wear Tip Calculator.

The app uses a circular design.
