Tip: Drive's Latest Update Adds Global 'Copy To Clipboard' Option In The Share Menu

When Google Drive was updated yesterday with the new native spreadsheet editor, all other aspects of the update were instantly less interesting. Now that the dust has settled and our excitement for the new editor has become more manageable, there's another nifty feature worth highlighting: the new "copy to clipboard" choice in the global share menu.

Now, when you choose to share something via the built-in option in any application, you will see an option for "copy to clipboard" - it was actually a little confusing where this new addition came from initially, but Ron notices every detail that exists in everything and immediately knew it was thanks to the Drive update.

Google Posts Android 4.2.1 JOP40D Factory Images And Binaries For Multiple Devices (Nexus 4, 7, Galaxy Nexus)

If you head on over to Google's factory image site, you'll find brand-new images based on the incremental update to Android 4.2.1. The devices with factory images currently available include the Nexus 7, Nexus 7 3G, Galaxy Nexus (takju, yakju), and Nexus 4. The 4.2.1 image for the Nexus 10 has been delayed, according to JBQ, due to an issue with JOP40C not being flashable over older builds. This has since been fixed, and you can download the new 4.2 factory image for the Nexus 10, though it's still build JOP40C.

[Deal Alert] Official 'Predators' Game For Android Only $0.99 (Down From $2.99)

A few weeks ago, I lamented on the fact that I can't have a pet Predator because he'd likely violently remove my throat for no good reason. I like my throat, so instead I've chosen to just play the Predator game for Android. And now you can join in on the fun for $2 less than you could've yesterday, or the days/weeks before that.

Originally $2.99, the game is now on sale for $0.99.

Verizon's Galaxy Note II Available Today For $300 With A Two-Year Agreement

Roughly 20 hours ago, Verizon and Samsung finally announced that the Big Red variant of the Note II would be available today. And, well, now it's available.

You can get this monstrous not-quite-a-tablet-but-more-than-a-phone for $300 with a two-year agreement, but it seems to me that Verizon should've knocked at least $50 more off that price for the obtrusiveness of the branding which they so graciously slapped on the home button.

[New Game] Once More, With Feeling: Gamevil's Zenonia 5 Available Now With Global Multiplayer

Gamevil's Zenonia franchise has been impossible to ignore on Android, if only because there have been four relatively high-budget releases in as many years. The fifth installment of the action RPG series, subtitled "Wheel Of Destiny" in the continuing tradition of semi-meaningless JRPG convention, is available now. It's a free download for anyone running Android 2.2 or later.

Gamevil's claim that Zenonia is the "definitive action RPG" might be a little dubious, but it's certainly got its share of fans.

Chrome For Android Updated, Brings 'Stability Fixes And Performance Improvements'

Well would you look at that. Seems our favorite - but admittedly still flawed - browser just got itself a little update. No, it's not the developer update we mentioned yesterday (that would be fast) - it's actually just a little bug fixer.

This version update includes a number of stability fixes and performance improvements.

The early reports seem to be pretty good - we're already hearing that there's a noticeable performance boost.

[New Game] BattleFriends At Sea Is Like Battleship Online For Android, Except Prettier

Seeing old board games modernized for smartphones has become relatively commonplace in the last year or two, though as Words With Friends has taught us, that isn't always a good thing. BattleFriends at Sea is enough free-to-play entry into the old-school board game foray, though it's remarkably polished and well-made.

The game runs on the Unity engine, and includes features like leaderboards, cross-platform play, and a few twists on the classic Battleship gameplay.
