[Updated] ASUS Teases New ZenFone To Be Unveiled at CES Saying, 'See What Others Can't See'

As CES 2015 approaches, ASUS is trying to build anticipation for their presentation. Using a short video, they are teasing an updated ZenFone with what appears to be a new camera feature. In their usual style, the video is pretty cryptic and feels like it’s loaded with subliminal messaging. Still, you can get a pretty good look at the device if you know where to look.

There is not much to the video since it is only 10 seconds long, with about half of that time containing the “see what others can’t see” text overlay and ASUS logo (our copy editor would not be a fan of that redundancy).

Nike's Golf 360 App Comes To Android After Taking Its Sweet Time On iOS

Look, we realize that some companies don't have the resources to develop apps for multiple platforms, and in some cases (some very limited cases) it makes sense to publish on the mobile OS that has 12% of the market. But Nike isn't one of those companies. And so it still kind of miffs us when they take two years to bring a sports app like Golf 360 to the Play Store.

Google Play Games Introduces New Publishing API And Leaderboard Tamper Protection, Improves Unity Plugin And C++ SDK

Game developers integrating with Google Play Games have seen a lot of improvements since the service was launched a year and a half ago at Google I/O 2013. There have been a lot of refinements to the experience for both players and developers, and new tools have made many of the tedious and time consuming chores much easier. Google has just launched a new Play Games Publishing API inspired by a similar interface that was added to the Play Store earlier this year.

PayPal 5.10.1 Update Adds Stored Gift Cards, Arabic And Hebrew Language Support

Some people download a million apps to their Android phone, one for each and every activity. Coincidentally, these are also the people who ask their brother why their phone, which was lightning fast when they got it, is suddenly struggling to open the homescreen under the load of three different QR code readers. (Not that I'm pointing fingers. Bekie.) For those who prefer to keep fewer apps installed, the latest PayPal update adds the ability to scan and retrieve gift cards.

Some HTC Nexus 9 Magic Covers Now Shipping For Amazon Pre-Orders, Coral Amethyst Color Still Available

If you snatched up one of the hard-to-find Nexus 9 Magic Covers by getting in a pre-order at Amazon way back in October, check your inbox. At least one Android Police reader reports that his cover has shipped. Given Amazon's extensive and speedy distribution network, it's likely that most of the other pre-orders are shipping as well, though that might depend on which color you chose. And speaking of colors...

Both AT&T And Verizon Send OTA Updates For Carrier Versions Of The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 And 10.1

Here's something you don't see every day. American carriers AT&T and Verizon both offer the fourth-generation models of the Galaxy Tab 8.0 and 10.1, and this weekend, they're each updating both versions. That indicates some kind of coordinated effort on the part of Samsung's software engineers... or a remarkable coincidence. In any case, owners should start seeing the over-the-air updates come in today, though some will have to wait a few more days.

[Deal Alert] The Unlocked AT&T Galaxy Note 4 Is $660 ($165 Off) On eBay Daily Deals

It isn't often that we issue a Deal Alert for a phone that still costs more than $500 after a discount, but thanks to AT&T's somewhat inflated pricing, this one qualifies. The carrier-branded version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 flagship is being sold on eBay for $659.99 today. That's a bit more than $160 off of AT&T's off-contract price for the phone, and still $50 cheaper than the international version of the Note 4 on Amazon.

I've been an Evernote user for a long time now. I've watched it grow from a simple way to take and organize notes to a powerful work tool. I've written many reviews in Evernote (for easy cross-device sync), and I don't see that changing any time soon.
