A little over a year ago, Madfinger Games released the original Dead Trigger, a free-to-play zombie shooter - I loved it. What exactly did I love about it? It was simple but fun, and even though it eventually ended up as a free-to-play game (it originally cost a dollar), you could have a pretty good time blasting hordes of the undead without spending any money at all, as long as you didn't mind some grinding here and there.Read More
Google still hasn't said anything official, but the Nexus 5 is clearly ready for launch. Canadian carrier Wind Mobile has just put up its Nexus 5 pre-registration page on Facebook so interested parties can get on the list to be notified (at some point).

Earlier today, the Nexus and KitKat crowds almost had collective heart attacks when they saw that kitkat.com/android was now password-protected and likely hiding something behind the locked gates. Possibly even all the complete KitKat details we've been dying to see (or whatever is left of them anyway). Could it be? Did the site go down for the big update, and the launch is imminent?

There aren't exactly many Google Glass explorers out there, since Google has not put the $1,500 product on sale anywhere, but your chances of spotting a wearer in the wild is about to shoot up.

They will still have to buy the glasses, mind you, but this means the device will soon be more accessible than it has ever been.Read More
Sometimes you just need to get a new phone, and you want it right now. But you don't want to leave the comfort of your house. There really aren't many good options to fix this age-old quandary, but Verizon is looking to provide a solution in a handful of cities.
A couple of weeks ago, Big Red decided to use Philadelphia as a testing ground for same-day delivery. Today, it's adding New York City, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco to that list.Read More
Plex Sync has been out for over a year now, allowing users to sync multimedia from a computer to their Android devices. Yet there are two primary weaknesses inherent with this setup. One, it requires that users have a host computer running at all times, and two, target mobile devices must have enough room to hold the desired files.

At the very first Samsung Developer Conference, this pattern continues as 5 new and updated SDKs have been announced for the company's various platforms. This batch of SDKs are centered on Android, Smart TVs, and enterprise development.
