Yahoo releases new Yahoo Sports app with modern Material Design interface

Yahoo already had a Sports app on the Play Store, which until yesterday enjoyed the brand's signature purple icon and "Yahoo Sports" name. Now, that app has been clearly retired with a grey icon and a switch back to its old Sportacular name. Instead, there's a brand new Yahoo Sports app on the Play Store with an improved purple icon and an entirely redesigned UI.

Say buh-bye to the old black and blue half-Holo half-Material look and hello to a full on white and dark blue interface with differentiated cards, easy to parse information, and a nice focus on visual aids.

Twitter starts showing a Night Mode toggle on Android

About a month ago, some Twitter users started spotting a night mode in their Twitter app that transformed the entire interface into a dark blue shade. The change was triggered server-side, meaning it showed up inconsistently across different Twitter beta and alpha versions, but it didn't seem like there was a way to revert it back to a light theme on request.

Now, more users are reporting this dark theme, except Twitter seems to have introduced a specific toggle in the app's drawer for Night mode. When it's on, the app's interface will switch completely to that dark shade of blue and when it's off, you're back to Twitter's famous white look.

[Deal Alert] eBay has an unlocked Galaxy S7 Edge Duos for just $590, the lowest price yet

These days a $600 smartphone isn't exactly a deal, it's where the high-end portion of the market transitions into the super-expensive area that most people won't buy (unless they get sweet-talked by a carrier "payment plan"). So if you've balked at Samsung's stratospheric $800 asking price for the Galaxy S7 Edge, now's your chance to grab an unlocked version of the phone - with dual SIM capability, no less - for a much more reasonable price. One eBay vendor is selling them for $589.99. That's the lowest we've seen for this model.

Google rolls out new ad settings tool to 'personalize' the ads you see

Google makes most of its money from showing ads, both on its own services and on third-party sites running Google's ad network. When you use Google products, you have to be okay with some of the things you do being used to inform the ads you see. Today, Google is making a new tool available to users that lets you see and control the information Google uses to show you ads, but it comes with an (optional) expansion of Google's advertising personalization.

Google launches new My Activity site, reaffirms Google knows basically everything about you

Google knows a lot about you - particularly about the "you" on the internet. A new tool launched today called My Activity lets you get some insight on just what that information is - in a readable sense - by showing you your various web, Google product (including Android and Android apps), and search activities in a rather pretty card timeline. The site works on both desktop and mobile.

My Activity (here) shows all this information, but also acts as a link hub for Google's various data-collecting services you can choose to turn on or off, such as location history.

If Zootopia and Mortal Kombat had a bastard child, it would be mobile one-on-one fighter Animelee

I recall with fondness the endless speculative arguments I heard around the elementary school lunch table in the 90s: who would win in a fight between Batman and Wolverine? Goku and Superman? Bill Clinton and Emilio Estevez? (There was always that one weird kid.) Imagine the same arguments happening in a university zoology department, and you might just find the inspiration for Animelee, an old-fashioned one-on-one fighter recently published in the Play Store. It's all about animals beating the crap out of each other. Check out the eye-popping trailer below:

Report: Alphabet subsidiary Sidewalk wants to drag US public transit and traffic management into the 21st century

American cities do a lot of things well, but public transit isn't one of them. Get outside the major metropolitan areas on the East Coast, and you're pretty much hosed without a car - try to treat cities in the Midwest or Texas or California like New York, and you'll soon walk right through your shoes. Even if you do have your own vehicle, parking and traffic can become your personal nightmare. According to a new report in the Guardian, one of the many subsidiaries inside Google's new Alphabet parent company is working on fixing that.
