Garmin doesn't get as much attention in the age of smartphones, but pilots and other professionals still rely on it. The Garmin Pilot app is a tool for flyboys to keep track of what's going on in the great blue yonder, and it's just gotten a big update to v3.0.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got a Lego game that's even cuter than ordinary Lego games, a Worms clone with some options, and an interesting mix of real-time strategy and lane defense.

For anyone who likes a nice structured itinerary for their weekend Vegas bender, TripIt is a handy app that combines flight, public transit, hotel, and restaurant info in to a tight little scheduling interface. And to make said interface even more tight, TripIt has revised the UI in the latest build. Well, at least some of the UI - from what we can tell, you'll only see the spiffy new blue-tinted screens if you're using a phone.

Now footloose and fancy free, or at least self-employed and unencumbered, Koushik "Koush" Dutta is expanding his popular AllCast streaming app to Amazon's new Fire TV set-top box. Unlike the Chromecast, Xbox, Roku, Apple TV, and various other gadgets with relatively open streaming profiles, the Fire TV needs a separate app to receive content from your phone or tablet. Just install AllCast on both and you should be good to go for local video and audio streaming.

One of the more far-reaching Android Police stories this year was our exclusive write-up of Virus Shield, an impressively popular anti-virus app that managed to make it to the top of the Play Store's sales charts in less than a week, despite the fact that it did absolutely nothing. After digging into the app's code, Artem Russakovskii and various Android Police readers found that it was nothing more than a few images and a toggle.

OnePlus has been amazingly and infuriatingly evasive when it comes to their much-hyped One phone, bordering on "bloody cheeky" with their series of faux-viral specification and schedule reveals. Perhaps one of their hardware or marketing partners got as fed up with waiting as we are, because a full set of convincing photos and renders has been leaked via a Chinese forum.

The set of photos shows what looks like a pretty standard high-end phone, with the interesting addition of a variety of removable"StyleSwap" back covers, including various covers made of (or at least covered in) wood, carbon fiber, and denim.

If you want a Note 3 but don't want to pay top dollar for it, you might be in luck. Though this is almost certainly a mistake, AT&T is presently selling refurbished Galaxy Note 3s in both black and white via its website for $249.99 off contract, or $99.99 with a two-year agreement.

Of course, there's no guarantee that AT&T will honor your order and actually ship the device, but if it does, you will have bragging rights for a long time to come.

If you've been waiting for a good opportunity to join the Nexus 7 party, now is as good a time as you're likely to find in the near future. If you head over to eBay Daily Deals, you can pick up a factory-refurbished WiFI-only Nexus 7 for just $149.99. This is the 2nd generation (2013) model and comes with a 90-day manufacturer warranty.

This price tag gives you roughly 35% off of the regular $229.99 MSRP for a brand new model.

It's the Googliest time of the year again - I/O is on the horizon. Registration closed as of yesterday (Friday), and I/O 2014 brought a whole new system in to deal with the demand for tickets: a lottery.

While it may seem a bit odd to some to have to be randomly selected for the right to spend $900 (or $300 for students / faculty) to go to a developer (and designer!) conference, Google I/O registration has sold out in minutes in previous years - even after Google has raised the cost of attendance substantially.

I loved the HTC One M7. Last year, it really did feel like a new breed of Android phone - bringing premium materials, a modernized interface, an innovative (if controversial) camera, and those trademark Boomsound speakers. The One M7 felt fresh in almost every way - it felt vital, it felt relevant.

The One M8 seeks to tame some of the raw newness - to build on it, soften up the edges, and modernize it.
