There's not much of a story behind Demolition Inc. on Android. Mike the UFO demolition man, er - alien, has orders to take out one city after the next, and you get to control all the chaos. This game starts out very strong, with cars careening around the road and knocking over buildings. A strong opening can't carry a game all the way to the finish line, though. While Demolition Inc.

Rumors about the mythical Google Drive have been ramping up lately. The rumored Google Drive is gunning for Dropbox with universal storage and sync. The Next Web is reporting that the service may launch as early as next week, giving users an initial 5GB of storage space that will sync between Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. Pretty sweet!

Earlier rumors suggest an early April release which we're pretty well past now, but with the intensity rumors have been milling about lately, it would surprise us if it wasn't going to drop soon.

A PR just hit our inbox from the guys over at Quickoffice detailing their new "Connect by Quickoffice" app. Since we like Quickoffice, we decided to take a closer look. Here's the general gist of it: if you're a Quickoffice user, you can install the new app for free (with limited functionality) and save all of your documents in the cloud, allowing you to access view them from any PC, Mac, tablet, or phone.

The ASUS Transformer Prime is the hottest Android tablet on store shelves right now, and for good reason; it's thin, fast, powerful, and well-featured. But there's one shortcoming that ruffled a lot of feathers: very poor GPS performance.

At the beginning of April, Google sealed a deal with Paramount that would bring 500 additional movies to the Play Store. Now, the Roaring Lion has decided to join the ranks as well: MGM studios' catalog is now available on Play Movies. The iconic MGM lion has been around for many years, and is one of the most easily recognizable signs that cinematic enjoyment is coming your way. The addition of MGM means that Google now has five of the six major movie studios' offerings in the Play Store - leaving Fox as the only one that hasn't jumped on board.

Confirming our suspicion that Sprint's variant of the Galaxy Nexus would be available on the 22nd, a pre-order page has gone live at Sprint.com, allowing customers to reserve Samsung's first Ice Cream Sandwich-powered device for just $199 with a two-year agreement.

What's more, the Now Network's pre-order page suggests that customers who buy early may just get their hands on a Galaxy Nexus sooner than expected:

Order online today, we’ll charge your card for your phone today and we’ll do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Sunday, April 22.

Look, I'm going to cut right to the chase here: we've done a lot of book giveaways, and in every single case they were quality books written by undisputed experts on the topics. But the book we're giving away here... well, it's on a whole new level, because it's written by an insider: Reto Meier, Google's Android Developer Relations Tech Lead. Having been involved in Android development (from the inside, mind you) since the initial release in 2007, it's safe to say there are few people who know more about how best to develop for the OS than him.

According to Land of Droid, this giant, we'll say, wand-looking thing, is the GPS dongle that's going to "fix" the Transformer Prime's GPS issues.
