Horizon Chase: World Tour Is A Retro Racing Game That Will Revive Your Nostalgia For Outrun And RoadBlasters (Without Eating All Your Quarters)

Isn't it interesting that now that we have the kind of graphical horsepower that our parents could only dream about while they were playing Pong and Adventure, we seem to be developing a serious case of nostalgia addiction. While high-end console and PC games are starting to look photorealistic, simpler fare like Minecraft and Crossy Road are earning enough money to make Solomon blush. Take Horizon Chase: it's about as simple as racing games come, but its charming graphics and straightforward setup are taking the mobile gaming world by storm.

OnePlus Extends On-Guard Insurance Plan To The US And Canada

There's a certain peace of mind that only comes from spending a bit of extra money when you buy something to get a protection plan that you probably won't even use, and now OnePlus 2 and X buyers in North America will have that option—just in time for the OnePlux X to kind of become available on these shores.

Folks in the US and Canada will get the same coverage, but they're looking at slightly different prices. Okay, Canadians are getting the short end of the stick thanks to the lower value of their syrup-covered frozen dollars.

PSA: You Can Enable Google Maps Traffic View In Countries And Regions Where It's Not Available

No matter how much we use our Android devices, there are tips and tricks that we don't discover until someone shares them with us and we hit ourselves on the head and say, "Why didn't I think of that?" One example is how to enable traffic view in Google Maps in countries and areas where the app says it isn't available.

Live traffic is officially enabled in about 50 countries in the world, and the rest of us often have to just start driving and then discover that the route we picked was jam packed with bumper-to-bumper traffic. Some countries have a local solution in terms of a standalone app or traffic provider, but that isn't as universal and integrated of a solution as Google Maps.

Deutsche Telekom And T-Mobile Force Another Company To Change Its Logo Because It Was Too Magentastic

Oxy is a small start-up company out of the United Kingdom that is planning to launch a new smartwatch on Indiegogo this month. By all accounts, it is not competing with any other company in the industry, not even Pebble. But Oxy got served with a lil' lawsuit threat when it tried to file for a trademark on its logo (shown on the left in the image above) by Deutsche Telekom. Reasons? Magenta. I feel like we've been down this road before.

The last time that T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom were up in arms about their Magentastic Property(TM), the offender was an AT&T subsidiary, Aio Wireless.

The Original Moto G Gets Its Android 5.1 Update On Verizon

The original Moto G started getting its official update to Android 5.1 in July. But those were unlocked units and we all know how operators like to test, re-test, delay, and re-delay OTA updates, so odds were that you would have to wait for months before getting it on your device if it wasn't unlocked.

Well, the odds and the stars have aligned in your favor if you're on the Verizon XT1028 version of the Moto G because Lollipop 5.1 is finally coming to you. The rollout started a few days ago so you may have already seen the notification, otherwise you should head into your phone's settings and manually check.
