Google+ Now Shows The Number Of Times Your Content Has Been Viewed, But Only On The Web Right Now

We all need a little positive reinforcement now and then, and Google's aiming to give that to you by surfacing a bit of data it's been keeping track of for a few years. If you head to your Google+ profile online, right next to your followers will be the number of views your content has gotten since Google started keeping track in October of 2012.

HTC One Mini (M4) Gains Official CyanogenMod Support, Early Build Now Available For Download

When it comes to "small" phones sporting 4.3-inch displays, the options are really slim these days. The top options each come with custom UIs, and consumers don't have the luxury of picking up a Google Play Edition of any of them. People who want a zippy stock Android experience on a smaller device that's still relatively powerful are therefore placed in a position to take matters into their own hands. For HTC One Mini (M4) owners, CyanogenMod is now here to help.

[What Does That Say?] Google Translates Text In Chrome To Emoji For April Fools' Day

Google does its part to celebrate the major US holidays, not to mention quite a few others, but April Fools' Day appears to be its favorite. The company goes all out every year, and it's already looking like 2014 may just be its very best effort yet. In addition to scattering Pokemon all over Maps, Google is now dispersing emoji all throughout Chrome.

The feature is optional, but once enabled, Chrome will replace certain words with emoji.

AllCast Updated With Chromecast Subtitles, Dropbox Streaming, And More

Chromecast apps are popping up almost faster than we can install them, but let's not forget one of the first apps to show us what the Chromecast was capable of doing. Of course, I'm talking about AllCast. Koush's streaming app has been updated with a few goodies, some of which are still listed as 'beta.'

This Peculiar Japanese Computer Simulation Shows Why You Shouldn't Use Your Phone While Walking

Texting and driving is a big no-no. We get that. People still do it, but it isn't from the misguided belief that they aren't being risky or, in some places, breaking the law. Yet what about texting and walking? It may not result in unintentional manslaughter (okay, it's much less likely to result in accidental death), but that doesn't mean it's harmless.

In Japan, wireless carrier NTT Docomo has been trying to educate the public on the dangers of walking while having their eyes glued on a mobile device.

Acer A1-830 Lightning Review: There Are Worse Ways To Spend $180

While many budget smartphones have come a long way in proving that "affordable" no longer necessarily means "bad" over the past few years (Moto G, anyone?), the budget tablet is still oftentimes a gamble. On one hand, devices like the Nexus 7 provide a fantastic user experience for not a lot of moneydollars; on the other, there are devices like the Snakebyte Vyper that basically verify the saying "you get what you pay for." Of course, some manufacturers – like ASUS, for example – seem to have a better handle on the art of building usable, affordable tablets.

Crackle's Free Movies And TV App Now Supports Chromecast, And That's Just Pretty Dang Cool

On a scale of one to ten, how much do you like movies and TV shows? I'd like to think that most people thoroughly enjoy a good flick, and basically everyone probably has at least one series they follow, as well. Of course we all love Netflix and Hulu+ (well, maybe we don't love the latter), but you know what else is good? Free. Free movies and TV, to be exact.
