Corning's Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass Promises To Make Your Smartphone Screen Less Gross, ZTE's Axon Gets It First

Doorknobs. Keyboards. Mobile electronics of all kinds. I'll take "things that are always covered in germs and crap, and which I really prefer not to think about" for $400, Alex. Yes, all the things you touch every day have a nasty habit of leaving gunk on your touchscreen phone - it's kind of part and parcel of the whole "touch" thing. But Corning wants to make you feel a little less gross when you think about that with its new version of the ubiquitous Gorilla Glass.

Prismatica Is An Original Color-Focused Puzzle Game That Will Spin You Right Round

There are a lot of puzzle games on Android. It makes sense: a touch-based interface is perfect for games that have a lot of active elements on screen at once and don't need quick responses. But that ideal setup means that years after the explosion of mobile gaming, we don't often see new ideas. Prismatica is a hexagonal puzzle game that bucks that trend. It's kind of like a two dimensional Rubik's cube, plus some color theory and twinkly music.

Each Prismatica stage is made up of a series of hexagonal wheels that are interconnected. Every wheel uses a colored spoke which "assigns" the color to its surrounding tiles, which overlap onto another wheel at at least one point, combining their colors.

[Deal Alert] 64GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive Drops To $50, Its Lowest Price On Amazon

SanDisk is known for its flash drives and microSD cards, but those don't always play along well with smartphones. Even the dual USB/microUSB drives run into trouble with some phones. To address this, there's the SanDisk Connect, a wireless flash drive that you can use without need for Internet access. It generates a Wi-Fi hotspot which, after installing the SanDisk Connect Flash Drive app, your phone or tablet can use to access files.

The bigger the drive, the better, and now it looks like the 64GB stick has dropped to $50 on Amazon.
