[Deal Alert] ZeroLemon Releases Battery Case For The Galaxy S6, And It's Moderately Less Brick-Like This Time Around (Currently 50% Off On Amazon) [Update: $20 With Code]

ZeroLemon makes these pretty nifty portable battery packs that you can recharge (albeit very slowly) using the large solar panel on top.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has A New Off-Contract AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 For Just $350 With Free Shipping

Gather round, cash-strapped gadget fans, and listen to this not-so-secret wisdom: high-end phones are ridiculously overpowered. Unless you're constantly live-streaming your breakfast while running NASA-level computations in the background, there's really no need for a 2.5GHz processor, a 2K screen, and 3GB of RAM. But high-end specs are still nice to have... so the frugal phone buyer waits until the next year's model rolls around, then snatches up last year's flagship on the cheap.

Major Update To Android Support Library 22.1 Introduces AppCompatActivity, Adds Major Theming Improvements And Tons Of Backward Compatibility

At one time in history, building an app that gave a consistent experience across all (or most) versions of Android was nearly impossible without dedicating a lot of time and effort. Thanks to the Android Support Library (a.k.a. AppCompat), it's easy to use some of the most important and commonplace user interface elements on versions of Android going as far back as Donut and Éclair.

Microsoft Releases Office Preview Apps For Tablets Running Lollipop And All Intel/x86 Systems

While Microsoft's wide release of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint for tablet users was more than welcome, there were more than a few strings attached. Most notably, it was incompatible with Android 5.0+, making the newest devices unable to use them. The other major hangup was the lack of support for x86 processors, which basically means all Intel SoCs, a popular choice in the midrange tablet market.

The music of my parents generation didn't rely on digital bass tracks or Auto-Tuning to craft a hit song. Instead, the artists of the seventies and eighties rocked out using the tools they had – electric guitars, drum sets, sweet vocals, and a whole lot of hair. Two great creators of music from that haira...

Reddit Has A New Beta Mobile Site, And It Doesn't Suck

There are dozens of Reddit clients in the Play Store, which is important seeing as the Reddit website sucks so hard on mobile devices. It doesn't really have a mobile UI at the main URL, it just scales things (awkwardly) to fit the screen width. There's also a little used "compact" site that's terrible in every way.

EA Sports Releases Graphically Impressive UFC Game For Android, Sucker Punches You With Pricey IAPs

I've seen many Android games that offer gorgeous screenshots in the Play Store that hardly reflect the visuals I encounter after downloading the title to my Nexus 7. That's not the case with EA Sports' newly-released UFC game. The press images were spot on. The fighters in this game are impressive, and fans are in for a visual treat.
