Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical newspaper that was attacked by gunman last week causing the deaths of twelve people, has published its latest newspaper edition on the Play Store. The "survivor's edition" has rapidly sold out in print despite an enormous initial run, so interested readers in France and around the world now have a more accessible alternative.
The original Gunslugs' mix of bullet-filled, NES-inspired, platforming nostalgia attracted hundreds of thousands of downloads. Now, two years to the day since we covered the original release, developer OrangePixel is back with a sequel, the creatively named Gunslugs 2.
In Gunslugs 2, the Black Duck Army returns to take over the world in an adventure that may be as impacted by 80's action films as video games of yesteryear. In both cases, the moral is the same—there's no such thing as an evil plan that can't be overcome by overwhelming quantities of hot lead.
Motorola makes it easy to get all your stuff on (or off) a Moto X, Moto G, and other Moto phones with the Migrate app. It's seen a few significant design changes in the wake of Android 5.0, and today it's getting another update. This one is mostly adding new functionality, but the UI has a few minor tweaks too.

Among postpaid plans, shared data has become par for the course. Your family (or "family") gets a certain allocation of data that everyone is allowed to use. This way instead of everyone getting 2GB of 3G/4G LTE, with a few people hardly touching their allotment and others burning through theirs in a week, the heavy users can have at the otherwise unused data as well.
Now Virgin Mobile is bringing the same treatment to prepaid, no-contract plans.
LinkedIn is supposed to be a social network for the corporate world, but using that site actually feels like work, and who wants to do more of that while they're taking a break? So Facebook is taking a more serious shot at the issue with "Facebook at Work."
Facebook at Work allows for work accounts that are separate from your personal one, letting you and co-workers communicate professionally without opening up your social lives to everyone at your company.
Welcome to the Android Police Podcast Live for Thursday, January 29th! We'll be starting soon - if you don't see a YouTube player, we haven't begun.
Welcome to the home of the Android Police Podcast's live broadcast. We're live every Thursday (unless otherwise noted on the official calendar below) at 5:30PM PST (8:30PM EST) - or perhaps a few minutes after that - every week. This post will be stickied on the Android Police homepage whenever we're broadcasting, so if you see it, we're either live right now, or about to be!
Time to break out that old Nexus 7 or Nexus 10—Google has just posted system images based on Android 5.0.2 for both of these devices (razor and mantaray). The most recent version on these tablets before today was 5.0.1, so it's not like they've been waiting on Lollipop this whole time like some devices (cough razorg cough).
The Google Glass team announced today, in a post to its Google+ page, that Glass is "graduating from Google[x] labs," presumably still marching toward a "real" consumer launch.
According to the post, January 19th will mark the official end of the Explorer program, a program that has spanned years and seen plenty of awesome, annoying, and controversial moments as Glass has looked for a place in the hearts and minds of tech consumers and its own place in the broader wearable ecosystem, finding homes in operating rooms, fashion runways, fire houses, magazines, music videos, and showers.
