Yesterday, The Information reported that Google is rumored to be working on smart thermostats, in a renewed bid to help users manage their home energy (and interior climate). Information on the project is sparse so far, but Google hopes it will be a successful follow-up to the unsuccessful PowerMeter, a service that was killed off due to apparent scaling difficulties.

Thanks to a tipster who is - we know you've heard this before - familiar with the matter, we've got an early glimpse into Google's upcoming thermostat foray - we've got a few new details and a look at the service's Android app.

The concept of playing Android games on a TV is hardly an original premise, with Ouya being by far the most well-known means of doing so to date. Yet that Kickstarter-backed console isn't for everyone, and if you've wanted to get your hands on something packing more power under the hood, then your eyes have probably landed on the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. at some point over the past several months.

It's been nearly a year and a half since we last wrote about the Amazon MP3 app, because that's the last time the company did anything interesting with it. Compared to the competition at Google and elsewhere, Amazon's iTunes competitor looks positively stale.

Back on the Nexus 5's launch day, Google announced an upcoming feature that would make it easier to open search results directly inside of relevant apps, rather than within a web browser. You'd be forgiven for missing this announcement, given everything else that was going on that day.
