Dell Announces Venue 10, An Education-Focused Tablet That Will Run Lollipop

As part of a series of education-oriented product announcements, Dell is introducing the Venue 10, a Lollipop-enabled Android tablet. The device, which will have a "Pro" sibling that runs Windows 8.1, is set to debut in the spring and will be Google Apps for Education certified. While it will fall short of being a high-end tablet and may not have wide availability, it does have a few cool features.

Dell's release says the Venue 10 line will have "HD or Full HD" 10.1 inch screens, making it unclear whether these will be options or if the 1080p display will apply only to the Pro model.

Peter Molyneux Leaves The Winner Of 'Curiosity' Hanging On His Promised Life-Changing 'Godus' Prize

Remember Curiosity? It's alright if you don't - it wasn't a very good game, despite having an interesting social concept. Basically a bunch of people continually tapped at an enormous digital cube clearing billions of virtual tiles, and only one of them would "win" by reaching the center. The Tootsie Roll center of that Tootsie Pop turned out to be Godus, a crowdfunded game that allows players to play god and influence the lives of tiny polygonal villagers. It's currently still in "early access" on Steam and available on Android as a work in progress.

Godus and its lead-in Curiosity (now removed from the Play Store) were created by Peter Molyneux and his team of developers at 22Cans.

Flickr Updated To v3.2.2 With Tagging Users, Better Photo Organization, And More

The Flickr app got a substantial redesign not long ago, and it's not bad. The new version brings some additional features, including something mysterious and "sparkly." I'm not sure what that means, but there are some other, less cryptic features as well.
