Google is pushing out an update to the Play Store's Android interface that replaces the action bar with a standard search bar. Inside are the words "Google play," which, when tapped, show off the hamburger flip animation and pull up recent Play Store searches.

Hands-On With The Tylt VU Solo: It's A VU, Only Smaller

One of my favorite innovations that has started to become more mainstream over the past several years is wireless charging.
