Big changes are happening over at Humble Bundle that could mean a lot more games for you and more money for charity. It's only been a few weeks since the most recent Humble Mobile Bundle launched, but there are going to be many more going forward. The Humble Bundle website is getting a special mobile section that will serve as home to a new Android bundle every two weeks, and it kicks off with the Sega bundle.

Street View's name doesn't fully capture what the service is good for. Yes, it makes getting the feel for a new city or campus cheap and easy, but it's perfectly capable of providing shots of places other than streets as well. Google has recently taken Street View to some of the most impressive areas of Iceland and is doing its part to share the region's beauty with the rest of the world.

Plenty of US smartphone users have owned a ZTE device, but they might not know it. The Chinese OEM has been providing phones for carriers to re-brand for years, but its US presence has grown considerably. The unlocked Nubia 5S Mini will be a test of how positively the brand is viewed when it launches on August 27th for $279 on Amazon.

Update 2: Amir Efrati, author of The Information's report, says Verizon is a lying piece of crap:

Efrati goes on to write that they know for a fact Verizon has been probing carriers, OEMs, and developers about its own Google Play alternative.

When Barnes & Noble and Samsung announced that they were going to work together to produce a Nook tablet, it was unclear just what this would entail. Now the tablet is available for purchase, and to be upfront, it doesn't look all that different from any other Samsung product. Setting aside the predictable hardware, we're looking at a TouchWiz tablet with a few Nook apps and a dedicated reading button on the homescreen.

Secret is a social networking app that allows users to share pictures and text anonymously. It's become the hot new thing in some circles, but not everyone is happy about it. A court case in Brazil has resulted in Judge Paulo Cesar de Carvalho issuing a preliminary injunction requiring Google to remove the app from the Play Store and remotely delete it from users' devices. Apple was hit with the same ruling.

A new version of Pushbullet is rolling out today that allows your clipboard to transcend the constraints of a single device. Just flip the switch, and all your devices will automatically sync clipboard content through Pushbullet. Cool, right?

I happen to like Dropbox's Carousel app, but the inability to control what photos appeared in my photo collection was a deal-breaker right from the beginning. So I'm happy to see that the latest release adds the option to hide or delete photos. It also makes it pretty easy to restore hidden images later on.

Dropbox wants peoples to automatically upload photos to their servers, so it bundled this feature in with Carousel, and users didn't have a say in whether they wanted to use it.

Even if large swathes of people are able to get by just fine with 16 or 32GB of internal storage, I know there are more than a few reading this site who simply find that limitation unbearable. I understand. If my smartphone has all the power and functionality of a mini-computer, why can't it have the storage of one as well? For this reason, many people hold on tightly to devices with microSD card slots, and for them, there occasionally comes a deal like this one.

If you hopped on the I want a really big HTC phone train, then you probably have a One Max. If that One Max also happens to be on Verizon, it's time to start checking for updates, because Sense 6 is rolling out now. Woo for you.

This update doesn't appear to have much else going for it, as the device is already running Android 4.4.2, but I guess a major revision to the custom skin is nothing to scoff at.
