Facebook Will Allow Google To Index, Deep Link Into Facebook's App From Mobile Searches

Google and Facebook are sort of rivals, even if the average Joe may not realize it. They're both heavily invested in the race to know everything about you and to use that knowledge to make lots of money...somehow. And while Google has become a pretty integral part of using the web, on mobile it is important that searches don't just take you to websites, but apps too. That's why today's announcement via an Alphabet spokesperson that Google will show mobile search results that link to the Facebook app is important.

Pandora Buys Rdio For $75 Million, Latter Service Will Eventually Shut Down

With the number of online music streaming services floating around, there's seemingly an option out there for any type of music listener. Inevitably some of these services will be similar. Pandora provides Internet radio stations that mold to your tastes. Spotify provides an online library that lets you play what you want on demand.

Rdio lets you listen to radio stations that adapt to your taste. Sound familiar? Pandora apparently thinks so, because the company is now buying Rdio.

ZTE Announces The Blade S7 For All You Selfie Lovers Out There

ZTE has just announced the newest entry to its Blade lineup, the Blade S7. The S7 will go on sale in Thailand and other countries across the Asia Pacific soon afterwards, and is squarely targeted at the selfie-loving segment of the population, with ZTE dubbing it its "most powerful selfie smartphone to date."

Jacky Zhang, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices in the Asia Pacific, claims ZTE wanted to create a device "that takes the selfie experience to a new level," and they have arguably delivered on that promise. The Blade S7 features a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with a flash and phase detection autofocus, which can be used to take full advantage of the 14 different "beautification" options available.

Samsung Announces The Exynos 8 Octa 8890

Samsung has just unveiled the newest member of its Exynos family of System-on-Chips (SoCs), the Exynos 8 Octa 8890. Like the Exynos 7 Octa chips from earlier this year and the Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm, this chip is built on the latest 14nm FinFET process technology. The Exynos 8 Octa 8890 also represents the first time Samsung has custom-designed its own CPU cores based on 64-bit architecture, coupling 4 big custom cores with 4 small ARM Cortex-A53 cores to make up the 8 cores of the chip.

The company claims that the new technology offers a 30 percent improvement in performance compared to the Exynos 7 Octa while still managing to promise 10 percent more power efficiency.

[Poll] Join AP For A Round Of 'Guess Which One Of These Phones Is A Real Product' With Your Host - Jeff Beck

Here at Android Police we are usually pretty straightforward, if perhaps a little snarky, with our presentation of the news. Every once in a while though, we run into a story so strange that it is worthy of a more creative approach.

We ran into a press release, a few days back, for a device that was so bizarre we couldn't believe it was real. I've described that device for you in the article below, along with three fake devices that I made up. When you are done reading you can answer the poll at the bottom of the page letting us know which device you think is an actual product.

Google Open Sources Its TensorFlow Machine Learning Engine

Many of Google's most important products reply upon making computers behave more like people. Whether you're talking about speech recognition or the new Smart Reply feature of Inbox, you need a machine to understand abstract concepts. Google makes this happen with a machine learning system called TensorFlow, and today the company has decided to open source this platform so anyone around the world can use it for research and product development.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Is An Absurd Physics Game Starring A Perfectly Ordinary Human

You wear a disguise, to look like human guys, but you're not a man, you're a Chicken Boo. The classic Animaniacs sketch, wherein a six-foot chicken passes himself off as human in various Chaplin-style short farces, might very well be one of the inspirations for indie gaming hit Octodad: Dadliest Catch. In this casual physics game you play an eight-legged cephalopod trying to live the American dream, passing himself off as an average Joe as he gets married, enters the workforce, and raises a family.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Own (And Use) A Wireless Charger For Your Smartphone?

We ran this poll a little over two years ago, but I figured it was time for a refresh. Wireless charging seemed to have a lot of momentum in the smartphone world for a little while there, but there's no denying the enthusiasm from manufacturers toward it has cooled recently. The new Nexus phones don't charge wirelessly, nor do most of Motorola's new devices, LG's need a special case, and HTC has never been hip on it. The only major OEM pushing it is Samsung, with the Note 5 and S6 edge+ being the first phones ever to support faster Qi charging.

Fly Labs, "Creators Of The World's Best Video Editing Apps," Get Acquired By Google And Join The Photos Team

As an Android user, you are forgiven for not knowing who or what Fly Labs is. The company's video editing suite of applications is only available on iOS so your exposure to its products may have been non-existent. But you're about to hear more about Fly Labs or at least its products' features since it has just been acquired by Google.

The company announced the acquisition on its site and Google Photos' product lead David Lieb reiterated the news, dubbing Fly Labs as the "creators of the world's best video editing apps."  I don't know about the world's best, but Fly Labs has some very interesting products under its name. Clips puts fragments of videos together, reorders them, and tags music or voice recordings on top of them. Tempo edits slow-motion, fast-forwarded clips, and time-lapse videos. Fly uses gestures to edit videos, apply cuts and transitions, integrate picture-in-picture, or split the screen.

HTC One A9 Officially Available At Sprint And AT&T Stores Today, But Sprint Wants $700 For It Because They're Idiots

While online sales of the HTC One A9, including carrier pre-orders, have been going on some time now, today it is now in actual, physical stores. AT&T and Sprint ones.

Pre-orders should begin shipping today for carrier variants and unlocked devices alike, too. But if you want to see a One A9 in person - and it's a pretty good phone - you can now do that, at least in America. There's no word on when T-Mobile's version is coming, exactly. The unlocked edition of the phone will get Verizon compatibility at a later date.

Edit: This article previously stated that there would be a T-Mobile A9.
