[Deal Alert] Samsung's TabPRO And NotePRO Tablets Discounted By Up To $50 At Amazon, Best Buy, And More

If you think that Samsung's new Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets are hilariously overpriced, you're in good company. As of today, that company includes at least a few people at Amazon and Best Buy.

New HTC One (M8) Makes Another Appearance In 14-Minute German Hands-On Video Before Its Official Announcement

HTC might have been cool with a handful of M8 leaks to stir up interest, but this is probably not what the Taiwanese company had in mind. For a second time, the new HTC One has taken center stage in a video hands-on. This time it's 14 minutes long and entirely in German. We do not speak German.

This video really digs into the software experience and shows off that dual-camera.

On March 23rd, 2010, Android Police was born, which makes today our 4th anniversary! While we'd like to have a birthday party with cake, balloons, streamers, punch, pie, and party games (have to keep it clean – this is a party for a four year old, after all), we decided instead to just team up with NVIDIA and give away some killer gadgets. So instead of giving gifts to AP for its birthday, we're actually giving gifts to our readers.

Unique Photo Sharing App Rando Removed From The Play Store After A Script Undermines The System

Alas, poor Rando, we knew it well. Actually, not that well - that was kind of the point. This photo sharing app from the developer of Whale Trail eschewed the usual reputation and tagging systems of most photo sharing services in favor of a one-at-a-time approach. But after a Russian programmer created a script to game the system and upload thousands of identical photos, thus funneling all of Rando's unique content to himself, the developers shut down the app and the service.

Google Patent Application Shows Multi-Sensor Contact Lenses For Wearable Device Input Via Blinks

"Smart contact lens." Get used to that term, even if it makes you cringe - a new patent from Google indicates that at least someone at Mountain View thinks it's a potentially viable idea. Patent Bolt reports on a Google application to the USPTO for "multi-sensor contact lenses," intended primarily as a method for blinking input or input augmentation for wearable devices, or just electronics in general. (Note: this shouldn't be confused with Google's other contact lenses, announced in January as a medical diagnostic device for diabetics.)

The basic idea is that a number of sensors embedded into a contact lens could be used to detect blinks with incredible accuracy.

Qualcomm Toq App 1.4 Update Adds Better Activity Tracking, More SMS History Options, And New Watch Faces

Say what you will about smartwatches - and we do, at every occasion - but you'll never see a Rolex or Omega watch that improves with just an app update. The latest version of the companion app for Qualcomm's unique Toq does just that, with an emphasis on the watch's built-in activity tracking. Specifically, the 1.4 update allows you to set daily activity goals (a la Nike's Fuelband and other fitness trackers) and access a detailed history of your activity and workouts.

[Weekend Poll] Android Wear Is Here, But Is A Smartwatch's OS Really Important To You?

While some would call it an inevitable eventuality, others were taken a bit aback when Google teased a wearable SDK at SXSW a couple weeks back, and later announced Android Wear. For those of you playing at home, Google has created no fewer than five variants of the Android OS tuned to a specific piece or style of hardware to date - Google TV, Chromecast (which does indeed run Android), Google Glass, Nexus Q, and now Android Wear.

[New App] Gametime Makes Last-Minute Sports Ticket Purchases Easy, But Only For Some Teams

Going to the ball game is wickedly expensive, which is probably why aftermarket ticket services are flourishing. But they're not exactly intuitive: you have to deal with shipping or meeting the seller in person, which is often a huge barrier if you're strapped for time. Enter Gametime, an app previously limited to iOS, which tries to combine great deals on last-minute ticket sales with a friendly, mobile-focused interface.

unnamed (2) unnamed (3) unnamed (1)

Here's the gist: sports venues have unsold tickets to a game, which the Gametime app features with significant discounts, "up to 80% off." You buy the tickets through the Gametime app, and immediately after paying you've got a scannable ticket on your phone.

Tell Google Search To 'Play Some Music' To Instantly Launch I'm Feeling Lucky Radio

Okay, so that camera voice command Google pointed out the other day wasn't terribly useful, but the new music command is pretty cool. Just pull up voice search in whatever way you prefer, and tell your device to "play some music." That's it – the tunes will flow.
