Sony Officially Introduces The SmartBand 2 Lifelogging Wristband, Hitting Stores In September

Is a leak a leak if it comes directly from Sony? Anyway, we've had reason to know the SmartBand 2 was on its way. We've just been waiting for a time frame. Well, here it is. Today Sony has officially announced its updated fitness band. The SmartBand 2 will go on sale in 60 countries for around 119 Euro starting in September.

The big addition for this year's model is the inclusion of a heart rate monitor. This extra sensor gives the SmartBand 2 the ability to detect your pulse and gauge how quickly your heart is beating. It can then track this information as you walk, run, or workout.

[Update: Official Statement] Many Cerberus Free 'Lifetime' Licenses Are Expiring In A Few Days Because Developers Gotta Eat

Cerberus is one of the more full-featured device security apps available on Android. It has more features than Android Device Manager, and more importantly it existed years before Google's solution. The developer has occasionally offered free lifetime licenses for the app, but now users are seeing that their "lifetime" licenses are set to expire in a few days. What gives?

AMC Has A New Streaming App With Full Episodes For Subscribers, Play Store Links For Everyone Else

AMC, the American cable channel that's home to shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead, has more apps than you might think. There's AMC Extras, a bunch of DVD-style content to promote various shows, AMC Tablet, which is basically a companion app for said shows, specialized apps for half a dozen other shows, and even a Christmas movie app. Now they've launched one that's just for watching new episodes... which makes sense, considering that's what most people want to do with their content in the first place.

Episodes that are currently available to stream go in and out on a rolling basis, but the important ones (new episodes of currently-airing shows) appear a day or so after the episode has aired on cable television.

That was fun. It turns out those Ting folks are pretty swell, and to prove it, they'd like to give one of you a Nexus 6 for free, gratis, and nothing.

Google Officially Announces Android Wear Update For Interactive Watch Faces And More Translate Functionality

We've known that it's coming for about a month, and today Google has made good on those expectations. According to a post on the official Android blog, Android Wear will be getting a software update "in the coming weeks" that will enable interactive watch faces. These are essentially tiny apps/widgets built into a watch face design that let you do more than simply tell the time or check the weather. A sufficiently advanced face app could replace several individual Wear apps, or do away with the need to check for updates from a specific app.

Trello Team Manager Gets Easy Local Sharing Via Nearby API In The Latest Update

Trello is a service that allows teams of people to delineate tasks and assignments. I've used it for various projects, and it's surprisingly effective once you get used to its somewhat unconventional drag-and-drop card/stack system. The design is most effective for large teams that don't often get everyone in the same place. But what about the times when you do happen to be close to your teammates? Enter Google's fancy audio/Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connection API, Nearby, which was integrated into Google Play Services last month.

Now if you want to add another Trello user to a board and said user happens to be near you (and also using an Android phone or tablet), you can do so with the Nearby feature.

[Update: Available Now] A T-Mobile Version Of Samsung's 8-Inch Galaxy Tab A Has Popped Up On The Carrier's Website

Way back in April Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab A, a new tablet line with a 4:3 screen and metal body that screams "iPad alternative" in every language. So far we haven't heard of any carriers taking a bite, but Samsung's tablets are so ubiquitous that it was more or less inevitable. T-Mobile hasn't officially announced a Galaxy Tab A for the "Uncarrier," but the company's support site now has a listing for a branded version.

Sheets v1.4.332 Adds Auto-Fill And Automatic Keyboard Modes Based On Cell Contents, Preparing To Add Contributor Role And Comments [APK Teardown + Download]

Most people don't enjoy the thought of using a mobile device to fill in data on a spreadsheet, but it has to happen from time to time. We want an application that knows how to make the process as quick and painless as possible. The latest update to Google Sheets takes a couple of big steps in that direction with a smart auto-fill feature for quickly adding information based on patterns. There is also a new keyboard selector that automatically picks a keyboard mode based on the contents of the current cell. A quick look under the hood also reveals that comment support isn't far off.
