mamaRoo Bounces And Sways Your Baby While You Sit, Work, Or Watch, And Control It From Your Phone

Part of me is completely smitten by this infant seat, the other is appalled by how little we seem to hold, care, or connect with our babies. But I guess there are legitimate uses for a seat that replaces human motions, like for parents who suffer from back problems, those who need to get work done around the house with no one else there to help, and those whose babies start crying uncontrollably the moment they are put down.

Beloved Star Wars Action-RPG Knights Of The Old Republic Appears In The Play Store For $5

What's this? A licensed Star Wars game on Android that people actually want? Believe it or not, the fan-favorite Knights of the Old Republic just crash-landed into the Play Store out of nowhere. You can grab it for your Android 4.1+ device for five bucks right now. That's a 50% discounted price, at least according to the app description. Compatibility seems a little spotty, too: it's downloadable with most of my Nexus and SHIELD devices, but not my G Pad 8.3 GPE tablet.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere Plays A Convincing Creepy Uncle In This Profanity-Laden Holiday Promo Video

Sometimes you have to wonder if bombastic T-Mobile CEO John Legere actually believes the hyperbolically aggressive language he spews at his competitors. Then you watch something like this "Uncarrier Holiday" video, and you no longer have to wonder. This man appears to have a plush ornament of himself on his Christmas tree.

Legere doesn't tell us anything we don't already know as he lambasts AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint while rhyming about T-Mobile's speed, rollover data, and customer service.

Reddit user Ponkers posted an interesting find to /r/Android today, pointing out a significant privacy hole in Skype that essentially allows users to force an Android device to answer a call, making eavesdropping nearly effortless.

Ponkers drew a diagram below, which I feel compelled to include based on its artistic merits, but here's the gist of how the process works.

Such appears to be the case for the "ZC451CG," which the product description submitted to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group calls a successor to the ZenFone. This might be what Asus plans to unveil at CES.

Team Win Recovery Project Updated To Version 2.8.3, Throws In Moto G 2014 Support For Good Measure

The Team Win Recovery Project (more commonly known as TWRP) is easily the most popular custom recovery used by Android enthusiasts at this point. The latest release, which should apply to all of the current official builds, adds a handful of new features and a bunch of bug fixes. The biggest change is that the ADB sideload method has been modified to more closely align with the AOSP implementation, which keeps the update ZIP file on your computer rather than your phone or tablet.
