Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies have officially landed for the C Spire Galaxy S III and the Samsung Galaxy R, and are available at get.cm for your flashing pleasure.

Samsung has been babbling about its Unicorn Apocalypse game for a while now. Turns out that it's not only a real thing, but it's actually in the Play Store. It also appears to be pretty crappy judging by the two-star rating. Ouch.

If you're not familiar with Unicorn Apocalypse, then you must've missed Samsung's campaign with famed director Tim Burton where the company teased it. Watch the videos above to get up to speed.

Update: One of our commenters, Dan, actually spoke to Amanita on Facebook, and they explained the whole situation. Tl;dr - the old Hothead version will receive updates. Here's the full answer, which confirms some of our suspicions about the falling out:

hi, we had to republished Machinarium for Android because the older version was published by Canadian publisher Hothead Games. the collaboration wasn't ideal so we agreed to end it and publish the game again ourselves.

While Samsung often does do advertising right, I still don't really get what this Richie Rich-esque teaser trailer series for the Galaxy S IV is all about. Part 1 was unveiled last week, and today we've been treated to the second installment of A Boy Named Jeremy and a Cardboard Box That Says 'Unpacked' On It.

I'm guessing Jeremy and his mystical, light-producing parcel will be part of the official Galaxy S IV unveiling in New York later this week, and that there will be antics involved.

We've mentioned a couple of times on this site that when it comes to the battle of HTC versus Samsung, advertising is of paramount importance. Why? Because people who don't read blogs with names like 'Gizmondo,' 'Android Cops,' or 'The Precipice' have no idea what makes the Galaxy S IV better than the HTC One or vice versa. In fact, more often than not, the average Joe looking to buy a new item in a field he has no expertise in has just one question: what's a good brand?

Otterbox is known for making some of the most protective cases on the planet. The Defender Series, one of its most protective, is gearing up for a major upgrade: a built-in battery. Simply called the Defender Series with iON Intelligence, the case should effectively double the battery life of supported smartphones. Right out of the gate, it looks like the company plans on making it available for the iPhone and Galaxy S III, though hopefully cases for other handsets are in the works.

It's been a long time coming, but Sprint's version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is finally getting updated to Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1). There are quite a few reasons to pull this update, as it brings several enhancements over Ice Cream Sandwich, including Google Now, Project Butter (for smoothness), enhanced notifications, lockscreen widgets, and much more.

Aside from that, the update also brings a "Wi-Fi Qualcomm driver fix" so the device will automatically connect to the most recent Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as a "device self activation client update." Sounds intense.

We're four days ahead of Samsung's Galaxy S IV announcement event in NYC, and some alleged images of the device have made their way onto a Chinese forum. Before we even discuss the potential legitimacy, though, let's not forget that Samsung was able to keep the GSIII under wraps until the very day it was ready to show it off to the world. The company shared how it did that shortly after the GSIII's release, where it detailed the extreme security measures used to ensure the device remained a mystery.

Back in the day, when I was using a Nexus One, custom launchers were all the rage on Android - not using one was strange. And when I had a DROID BIONIC, I still found myself using my go-to option - ADW.ex - most of the time. Today, though, my primary device is a Galaxy Note II, and I haven't had the urge to use a custom launcher for a moment since using it.

There's no denying the value in Google Music – it lets you store all of your tunes in the cloud and take them everywhere you go without using up precious free space on your device. The problem is, however, that you have to use Google's proprietary player to stream the music. If you prefer something like PowerAMP, Winamp, or one of the many other media players in the Play Store, you're simply out of luck.
