Remember the time Samsung thought people wanted to walk around talking on a camera? Well, I'm not sure it got the memo that people actually didn't want that. Like, at all. Because tonight it announced another Galaxy Zoom. This one's called the Galaxy K zoom, and it's just like the last one...with better specs. You know, the natural progression of things. In all seriousness, though, it actually does look quite a bit sleeker and slimmer than last year's model.
So you decided to save yourself a few bucks and opted for the 16GB version of the latest phone, or even worse, are still stuck with an 8GB Nexus 4*, and now you're really feeling the pinch. The phone's lacking a microSD card slot, and that cloud storage isn't helping all that much on a limited data connection. What's a guy or gal to do? Pick up one of these dandy flash drives with dual microUSB/USB support.
Android gamers now have access to Treehouse's Steam Greenlit game Dethroned. This competitive action RTS tasks players with building up a ragtag band of soldiers, throwing up suitable defenses, and raiding opponents with all the force pixelated heroes can muster. The experience sits somewhere between an RTS and tower defense game, and it comes with the expected emphasis on multiplayer.
Note, early access here means early beta, so expect this adventure to be a bit rough around the edges.
The Automatic Link is the iPhone of OBD2 adapters. It's typically priced at $99.99, a price up to ten times higher than what competing hardware goes for on Amazon. What the product has that those alternatives don't, primarily, is a dedicated app that came to Android earlier this month. The gadget is currently available on Amazon for $79.99, 20% lower than its usual price.
People willing to experiment with other apps such as Torque or Dash can save themselves a few bucks by using any OBD2 adapter they wish, but others who would prefer a more plug-and-play experience may opt to pick up the Automatic Link.
Since CheapCast's release, Google has added several cryptographic checks to make sure the Chromecast ecosystem only works with approved devices such as Google's $35 dongle, Google TVs, and the like. The feature now checks for a Google signed certificate, which comes preloaded on such products.
