Unless you absolutely despise games, you've probably noticed Unreal Engine is sort of a rock star among game development platforms. Not only is it capable of rendering some profoundly gorgeous graphics, it can do so on virtually every major desktop and mobile operating system available. Today, Epic Games is releasing Unreal Engine 4.4 with some new tools for building animation and behavior models, additional rendering features, improved support for Android and iOS, and even some free stuff in the content marketplace.

You've probably been hearing a lot about a disease known as ALS in the last few days, and how CEOs of various tech companies are dumping buckets of chilly H2O on themselves in some misguided attempt to cure said ailment.

ALS, by the way, is a condition you're almost definitely already aware of, especially if you're American - it's more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. ALS is a rebrand by the medical community (and by rebrand, I mean an actual, scientific name), and stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Nexus5-Thumb2

We've grown accustomed to seeing a new Nexus phone launch each year, and it looks like 2014 may not disappoint. But if the rumored Shamu device does end up with a 5.9" display, that will leave plenty of Nexus fans with a reason to stick with the Nexus 5. It's smaller, and as the deals continue to roll in, it will be cheaper too. Today we see the phone on eBay for $329.99.

Motorola-CLIQ-XT

Over four years ago a bunch of people bought the Motorola Cliq XT thinking that it would eventually receive an update to a future version of Android. Instead, after months of putting up with silent delays, they were left stranded on Cupcake (yes, that's how long ago we're talking here). Now the class action lawsuit Haught v. Motorola Mobility taken up in the name of these jilted folks has resulted in a small reward.

Microsoft has two versions of its Xbox One SmartGlass app in the Play Store—regular and beta. The beta app is getting an update today with some previously announced (and pretty neat) functionality. However, you'll only get the full effect if you're in a supported country, which for once is not the US.

Lego

For kids, deep internal conflict may consist of deciding whether to play with toys or something virtual and flashy. Even in our youth, there simply isn't enough time in the day for everything. Yet LEGO has an answer. With its new FUSION line of products, children (both young and old) can take physical blocks and create things that come to life inside of a tablet or certain phones. To launch the brand, LEGO has dropped three apps into the Play Store.

HTC's One M8 is a solid phone. It's packed with high-end specs, and has a high-end build to match. Of course, all that also equates to a high-end price tag. In an effort to build an equally powerful phone with a much smaller price, HTC swapped out the M8's aluminum body for a much subtler plastic frame. The result is the One E8, a much more affordable M8 trapped in plastic shell.

I know, I know. You are tired of filter and effect apps, and so am I. But this Afterlight app looks good, really good. After starting out on iOS and gaining popularity due to its simplicity and quality, the app has just been released on the Play Store for Android devices running 4.0.3 and up.
