[Deal Alert] Buy One Droid Turbo 2 And Get Another Turbo 2 Or Maxx 2 For 50% Off

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, love is in the air. Or is that a mix of rampant consumerism and hormones? Oh well, same thing pretty much. You can celebrate the special day with a pair of phones from Motorola/Verizon and get half off of one of them. If that's not romance, I don't know what is.

New Samsung Pay Ad Features Comedian Hannibal Buress And Makes Light Of Apple Pay

Samsung and Apple take swipes at each other. The two companies are sort of like mobile carriers in that regard. It surprises precisely no one to see them bickering this many years after taking one another to court (something they're still doing, by the way).

Kickstarter Launches Official Android App—Hopefully Future Updates Aren't Stretch Goals

Here's an idea. Tell me if I should get it crowdfunded. We'll create an Android app for Kickstarter. Wait, before you scoff, hear me out. This way you don't have to fiddle around with opening the site in a browser or opting to sit down at a laptop instead. As soon as you get the urge to throw your money at a project, you can do so.

What Do You Want To Know About The Huawei Mate 8?

I'll admit: we're kind of behind on our review of the Huawei Mate 8. Pretty much everyone's published one at this point, and so instead of trying to play catch-up and rushing, I had a different idea. Specifically, I want to know what you want to know about the Huawei Mate 8, especially if it's not something you've seen covered elsewhere. As long as it doesn't involve physically taking it apart. Or a battery life benchmark test (because I despise them).

The Huawei Mate 8, when it goes on sale, will be top dog in Huawei's current smartphone lineup. It features the latest Kirin processor, many LTE bands, a striking 1080p IPS LCD display, and a giant 4000mAh battery.

Google Is Investigating The New Linux Kernel Exploit, But Does Not Believe Many Android Devices Are Vulnerable

A zero-day vulnerability in the Linux kernel was disclosed a few days ago, and that usually spells bad news for anything based on Linux. That includes Android, of course. When Perception Point announced the exploit (CVE-2016-0728), it claimed 66% of Android devices were affected. Google's Adrian Ludwig says the real number is much, much smaller.

[Update: Winners] We Have 50 Promo Codes For LocalCast To Give Away

 

Casting audio, video, pictures, and more from your smartphone or tablet to the TV is one of the easiest ways to get content from the little screen to the big screen, but it requires an app that supports the feature in the first place. For example, try using Adobe Reader or Google Docs to cast a PDF to the TV. You're out of luck.

Thankfully, enterprising developers like Stefan Pledl—the creator of LocalCast—have been able to whip up some really nice looking solutions that allow users to cast almost any consumable content to the big screen.

This contest is now over.

T-Mobile Goes After Verizon With A Drinking Game And Ball Ad Spoof

No one would mistakenly believe that T-Mobile wants the competition to succeed, but it does tend to take things to the next level. The carrier has been very vocal about its dislike of the other guys, and today brings two more proofs of that.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To The Motorola RAZR, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 4, And Wileyfox Swift And Storm

Time to dust off your old phones. That Droid 4 in the back of your drawer, that Droid Bionic in the shoe box in your garage, and those RAZR and Droid RAZR that you can't even remember hiding or throwing away, they've all gotten a fresh breath of air. If you own of these you've probably scoured XDA's forums for months and found several custom ROMs based on Marshmallow for them, but if you prefer the CyanogenMod flavor in your ROMs then today is the day you can start flashing it.

But that's not all. Other devices are getting their first CyanogenMod 13 nightlies with Android 6.0 as well.

Crashlands From Butterscotch Shenanigans Crash Lands Onto Android, Steam, and iOS Today

Look, Butterscotch Shenanigans makes some pretty nifty looking games. They're all crazy over-the-top, vibrant, and brilliantly scripted pieces of art, even. You know, stuff like Quadropus Rampage and Towelfight 2: Monocle of Destiny. Or Flop Rocket. How can you not like something called Flop Rocket? (Disclaimer: I've never played Flop Rocket.)

Anyway, today, the company's newest game, Crashlands, is crash landing onto Android. It's also available on Steam and iOS, if you're into that kind of thing.
