[Deal Alert] SanDisk 64GB USB OTG Drive Just $19 on Amazon

One of the cooler and, in my opinion, underutilized features present in many modern Android flagships is the ability to use MicroUSB OTG devices to quickly transfer media. If this is a feature that you have wanted to take advantage of for a while, but just haven't gotten around to picking up a OTG thumb drive, then now might be a good time to finally grab one.

Today you can buy a 64GB SanDisk USB 2.0 OTG flash drive for just under $19.

Autodesk Announces Cross-Platform Stingray Game Engine With Extensive 3ds Max And Maya Integration

Game developers have a new player in the game engine market, and it's one most of them already know quite well: Autodesk. At GDC Europe, the software company behind some of the most popular 3D modeling tools in the industry – 3ds Max and Maya – has announced the Stingray game engine to compete with the likes of Unreal, Unity 3d, and others. Alongside Autodesk's other design tools, it offers a seamless solution for game developers and designers to rapidly prototype and build high performance, cross-platform games.

Stingray is based on the Bitsquid game engine acquired by Autodesk last year. It supports testing and deployment to Android, iOS, Windows 7 and 8, Oculus Rift DevKit 2, PS4, and Xbox One.

[APK Download] Chrome Beta 45 Adds Custom Tabs Feature That Was Previewed At I/O 2015, Better Media Controls, And More

Google announced an upcoming Chrome feature called Custom Tabs at I/O back in May. Today, that feature is finally launching on the Chrome Beta channel, and we've got the APK.

Custom Tabs are basically a pop-out web-view that apps can utilize to show users web pages in Chrome (where your passwords and other items are saved!) without actually fully leaving the app. This can make apps that require web-based authorization for sign-in or simply have lots of external web links a lot more convenient to use, and avoids having to use a full-on built-in webview mode that lacks all your synced Chrome information.

Android Platform Version Distribution Numbers For June And July Now Up - Lollipop Up To 18.1% Of All Devices

The new Android platform version distribution numbers are up on Google's developer site, and given no data was published during the month of July, that means we've got two months of change. Lollipop continues to climb - it's up from 12.4% a full 5.7 points, now at 18.1% of all devices. KitKat actually hasn't lost much traction because of that, and actually grew a tenth of a point, now at 39.3% of all devices versus 39.2% two months ago.

The real loser is Jelly Bean, down 3.8 points, with Ice Cream Sandwich down 1, Gingerbread down 1, and Froyo hanging steady at 0.3% (diediedie).

Motorola's Latest Commercial For The New Moto G Is Actually Pretty Hilarious

As we know, most smartphone commercials are, at best, OK. Many are less than OK, and some are just downright awful (see also: HTC-RDJ). Apple manages to score a hit every once in a while, but even their ads can come off as corny and contrived (or just boastful) sometimes.

Perhaps the greatest unicorn of all in smartphone advertising is a legitimately chuckle-worthy commercial. They're rare beasts, and even if that chuckle is from a completely WTF place (see: G Flex, ad sadly taken down), a laugh is a positive reaction. Usually. Anyway, Motorola made this new commercial for the Moto G and we all thought it was pretty funny.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy Is Currently Offering The Fire TV Stick For $25, Matching Amazon's Recent Prime Day Sale Price ($15 Off)

Like the Kindle tablets that came before it, Amazon's Fire TV Stick is built on top of a customized version of Android.
