[Update: 2nd Gen Moto E, Too] Motorola Is Preparing To Release Android 5.1 For Both The 1st And 2nd Gen Moto X In The U.S

The Moto X line is a great destination for Nexus lovers who tire of feeling like beta testers for Google, but the transition does come at the expense of timely updates (not that all Nexus devices are speedy). Fortunately Motorola remains committed to getting its devices up to date, and it looks like Android 5.1 may soon come to both iterations of the Moto X.

Sony Announces The Xperia C4 With 13MP Rear Camera, 5MP Wide-Angle Lens Front Shooter With Flash For PROselfies, 5.5" HD Display, 64-Bit Octacore Processor, And A Dual-SIM Option

I'm sure everybody can agree, it makes almost no sense that the Nexus 9 is only now receiving a tiny maintenance update to 5.0.2 a couple of months after 5.1 came out. Nevertheless, that's how events are playing out, so we should at least know what's so special about this update.

Double Fine Productions Brings Grim Fandango Remastered To Android, On Sale For Launch At $9.99

Some games from the late 90s have not aged well, and that's completely irrespective of the dated visuals of the era. Sensibilities are different now, and we expect different things from a top tier game. Grim Fandango, on the other hand, is still widely regarded as a masterpiece.
