[New Game] SNK Playmore Republishes 2D Favorite The King Of Fighters 2012... For Some Reason

There's something strange going on with SNK's The King of Fighters. Way back in March of 2012 an Android version of the classic 16-bit 2D fighter series was published, with a frustratingly short list of supported devices and no small amount of technical problems. The app disappeared from the US Play Store before too long, only to reappear this July. Now there's a brand new version, The King Of Fighters-A 2012, available alongside the original Android release.

AT&T Galaxy Mega (6.3) Review: I'm Not Sure I Should Like It... But I Kind Of Do

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is big. Really, really big. That is quite literally the entirety of the list of interesting features that distinguish it from other Samsung smartphones. It is a shamelessly single-minded product. In a way, that's a good thing - it's certainly a big part of what even makes it possible to sell the Mega for just $480 off contract ($150 on).

That's because the Mega really doesn't mess around when it comes to smart cost-cutting.

HTC One mini Review: The Awkward, RAM-Deprived Middle Child

The HTC One mini is, in many respects, very similar to its larger, older sibling, the HTC One. It has a [mostly] aluminum body, BoomSound speakers (though they've been noticeably downgraded), and HTC's Ultrapixel camera. It runs Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5, and its 720p S-LCD2 display with Gorilla Glass 3 is breathtakingly good for a "mid-range" phone.

So, how does it cost a full $170 less than the HTC One?

Google Bought Smartwatch Manufacturer WIMM A Year Ago

If you're into the idea of a smartwatch but haven't quite been swayed by the current offerings, Samsung's Galaxy Gear is likely on your radar. If you thought that's the only watch tech to look forward to, however, think again. Word just broke that Google purchased a smartwatch manufacturer about a year ago, right under everyone's noses.

That manufacturer was called WIMM, and it created an Android-powered watch called the WIMM One.

Possible Samsung Galaxy Note 3 And Sony Xperia Z1 Three UK Launch Dates Leaked, Both Reportedly Going On Sale In September

Are you stoked for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3? It's one of the most official unannounced products around, and information surrounding the massive handset continues to leak.

The Smart Cube Gives DSLR Cameras The Ability To Run Android Apps, Promises To Reshape The Photo-Taking Experience

There's a reason the world has transitioned to HDTVs. It's not that there was anything wrong with the concept of the television, it's just that the old giant boxes that occupied so much space in our homes were entirely the wrong shape for the task at hand. A giant cube with an antenna is a design that begs to be portable in a way televisions never have been. That's why the form-factor needed to move into a new market, and that's what makes the Smart Cube such a good idea.

What We Use, 2013 Edition: The Apps, Tools, Devices, And Other Stuff Cameron Can't Do Without

My first Android phone was the original Motorola Droid. The day it was released I happened to walk into Verizon to get an issue with my bill cleared up; I had been following the Droid leaks for some weeks before, so I was really excited to check it out in person. I walked in, picked it up (along with the Droid Eris), and played with it for a few minutes before explaining to the salesperson what Android was.

iMpulse Bluetooth Controller Review: A Terrible Product And A Cautionary Kickstarter Tale

When we first reported on the iMpulse controller, I was excited. A super-portable Bluetooth controller that strives to capture the near-perfect control scheme of the Super NES and only adds a few ounces to my pocket? Sign me up! And that's exactly what I did, almost a year ago.

Now, eleven months later and six months after the controller was supposed to ship, I've got it in my hands. And it is a bitter, bitter disappointment.
