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.

Google might be reinstating 'Quick view' in search results after a four-year hiatus

Search engine enthusiasts with their fingers on the pulse may remember an old Google feature called 'Quick view.' We wrote about it being tested for Wikipedia articles all the way back in 2013, and it seemed destined to be used for other websites, too. Google decided to kill it just a couple of months later, without reason, but it seems it could be coming back in a new guise.

Clarity Money, a personal finance manager that helps users save cash, launches on Android

It can be a pain to juggle all your monthly expenses and credit card balances, especially if you have more than one bank account to keep track of. That's why earlier this year, an app called Clarity Money launched (exclusively) on iOS, hoping to make it easier to manage bills and incomes. At the time, the company had hinted at plans to eventually release the app on other platforms, and so Clarity Money is now launching both on Google Play and as a standalone web app.

Clarity Money works similarly to Mint and other apps in the personal finance space. But in addition to being able to link a user's bank accounts and automatically categorize their expenses — something most personal finance apps already do — Clarity Money also attempts to save its users money by helping them make smarter financial decisions.

Instagram has always allowed you to add previously-taken pictures and videos to your Story, but the app imposed one limitation - the media had to be less than 24 hours old. I honestly never noticed that, but it seems silly. Instagram now seems to think so too, and has removed that limit from the mobile apps.

Telltale Games lays off 25% of its staff in company-wide restructuring

Telltale Games is one of the most widely-known game studios in the industry, and is often credited for re-popularizing the graphic adventure genre. All of the company's titles in recent years have arrived on Android, among other platforms (like iOS, Windows, PS4, Xbox ONe, and some on Mac). Unfortunately, Telltale announced a 25% reduction of staff today, affecting 90 individuals.

Telltale Games CEO Pete Hawley said, "Our industry has shifted in tremendous ways over the past few years. The realities of the environment we face moving forward demand we evolve, as well, reorienting our organization with a focus on delivering fewer, better games with a smaller team." A representative for the company said the restructuring will not affect previously announced games, like the upcoming seasons for The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Game of Thrones.
