Player FM 4.0 update includes new UI, premium subscriptions, and plenty more

One of the more accomplished of the many podcast apps out there is Player FM. It's been a while since we last covered it, but today's news is worthy of a mention. Version 4.0 has been announced, and with it comes a redesigned interface, premium membership options, and a host of other new features.

If you're a regular user, the first thing you'll notice is the new UI, headlined by a five-tab bottom navigation panel. The options available to you there are Discover, Downloads, Shows, Playlists, and Settings, which should cover the vast majority of what you need to do in the app, with it all now in easy reach of your thumb.

Spacetime Studios has released a public beta for its newest game Pocket Legends Adventures

Spacetime Studios, the creators of Pocket Legends, Dark Legends, Star Legends, and Arcane Legends, have released an all-new game in the Legends MMO series, but it may not be quite what you expect. You see, Spacetime Studios has stated that their newest release Pocket Legends Adventures isn't an MMO but is "an epic, action-packed RPG adventure." For the most part, I am seeing little difference from their other games, but maybe there are larger plans on the horizon for the official release?

[Deal Alert] 16GB NVIDIA SHIELD TV is $169.99 at Best Buy ($30 off)

The 16GB SHIELD TV (2017) costs $199.99 and the price has rarely budged since its release at the start of the year. It was once down $20 for Amazon Prime Day and another time you could get $25 off with Visa Checkout, but that's it. So you can imagine that the smallest discount is worthy of mention, and that's the case of this $30 discount that brings it to its lowest price yet at $169.99.

Best Buy is running a "Black Friday Ad Deal" on the SHIELD TV that brings its price down from $199.99 to $169.99. That happens to be $10 less than the "SHIELD TV with remote" version (but without controller) that NVIDIA released a couple of months ago.

[Update: You can turn it on now] Chrome 64 will block those pesky redirecting ads everyone hates

Over the past few months, we've received dozens of complaints about redirecting ads on this site, which we have been repeatedly reporting to our ad networks. The problem ultimately comes down to rogue ads being published through common ad networks (even 'safe' ones like AdSense and AdX), which then show up on sites like ours. When the ads load, they hijack the parent page to load a misleading message, like the one pictured above, often while turning on the device's vibration motor to make it seem more realistic.

Most ad networks don't have any kind of manual review process, making this behavior difficult to pinpoint, and the ad's code can even be obfuscated to hide the malicious behavior.

[Deal Alert] Get an Xperia XZ1 Compact for just $504.99 ($95 off) from Amazon

Today, virtually the smallest mainstream Android flagship on the market is the 5.0" Pixel 2. That's a nice phone, but it's pricey and might still be too big for your liking. It's a good thing that the Xperia XZ1 Compact exists, then, and it's even better that it's currently discounted on Amazon to just $504.99. That's nearly $100 off on a still-new phone.

The Galaxy Note 8 is a pretty phone, but those of us in the US were stuck picking between the "Midnight Black" and "Orchid Gray" versions. The true looker in Samsung's lineup was the "Deepsea Blue" color variant, which was only sold in other markets. That changes today with news that Samsung is bringing this color to the US.
