Google rolls out new ad settings tool to 'personalize' the ads you see

Google makes most of its money from showing ads, both on its own services and on third-party sites running Google's ad network. When you use Google products, you have to be okay with some of the things you do being used to inform the ads you see. Today, Google is making a new tool available to users that lets you see and control the information Google uses to show you ads, but it comes with an (optional) expansion of Google's advertising personalization.

Google launches new My Activity site, reaffirms Google knows basically everything about you

Google knows a lot about you - particularly about the "you" on the internet. A new tool launched today called My Activity lets you get some insight on just what that information is - in a readable sense - by showing you your various web, Google product (including Android and Android apps), and search activities in a rather pretty card timeline. The site works on both desktop and mobile.

My Activity (here) shows all this information, but also acts as a link hub for Google's various data-collecting services you can choose to turn on or off, such as location history.

If Zootopia and Mortal Kombat had a bastard child, it would be mobile one-on-one fighter Animelee

I recall with fondness the endless speculative arguments I heard around the elementary school lunch table in the 90s: who would win in a fight between Batman and Wolverine? Goku and Superman? Bill Clinton and Emilio Estevez? (There was always that one weird kid.) Imagine the same arguments happening in a university zoology department, and you might just find the inspiration for Animelee, an old-fashioned one-on-one fighter recently published in the Play Store. It's all about animals beating the crap out of each other. Check out the eye-popping trailer below:

Report: Alphabet subsidiary Sidewalk wants to drag US public transit and traffic management into the 21st century

American cities do a lot of things well, but public transit isn't one of them. Get outside the major metropolitan areas on the East Coast, and you're pretty much hosed without a car - try to treat cities in the Midwest or Texas or California like New York, and you'll soon walk right through your shoes. Even if you do have your own vehicle, parking and traffic can become your personal nightmare. According to a new report in the Guardian, one of the many subsidiaries inside Google's new Alphabet parent company is working on fixing that.

AOSP changelog posted for Android N Developer Preview 4

We've been keeping close tabs on the new features and adjustments made with each new developer preview of Android N, but there are obviously a boatload of other changes under the hood, many of them aren't obvious to the naked eye. That's where it can help to look deeper into the source code.

Best Buy and B&H Photo are both offering $50 gift cards with the 2016 Moto G and G Plus

The early reactions to Motorola's new generation of hardware have been tepid at best. Even so, if you're one of the people looking forward to the recently-announced US launch for the 2016 version of the Moto G and the new G Plus, Motorola is hoping to sweeten the pot on the already budget-priced phones. Both Best Buy and B&H Photos are offering free $50 gift cards to their respective stores for early buyers.

Turing Phone will supposedly finally ship on July 12th... in the form of an "evaluation" model

Turing, a company that I'm not even 100% certain really exists in any kind of larger sense, has been the subject of a number of posts on Android Police. That coverage began to crescendo last year, before sharply falling off with the announcement that the phone wouldn't meet its year-end 2015 ship date, but would be delayed until the end of Q1 2016. The end of Q1 2016 came and went. And now the end of Q2 2016 is upon us. So what happened?

Well, about a month ago, Turing again claimed the phone would ship - this time at the end of June.

[Evernope] Price increase coming to Evernote plans, free plan now limited to 2 devices only

Evernote has announced several changes to its plan structure today that will most likely upset many long-time users.
