Phiaton Bridge MS 500 Headphones Review: Quality Sounds And Comfort Without Compromises

When it comes to audio on-the-go, the consumer market has come full circle over the last several decades: back in the 80s it wasn't uncommon to see kids running around with massive headphones attached to their skulls, rocking out to whatever crap their parents hated the most. Fast-forward twenty years, and it was all about earbuds – stuffing tiny speakers into your ear canals was the only [socially acceptable] way to listen to music.

[New Game] Nun Attack: Run & Gun Blasts Into The Play Store Armed With Iron Faith And Holy Power-Ups

There isn't much depth to Nun Attack: Run & Gun, but it has crisp visuals, memorable nuns that are armed to the teeth, pick-up-and-play controls, and lots of gore. The game is righteous, dirty, casual fun, and it's now available for everyone in the Play Store. The original Nun Attack attracted millions of downloads, and we expect the sequel will do the same.

The action in Nun Attack: Run & Gun is pretty straightforward, as it's essentially summed up in the game's title.

[Bug-Watch] Android 4.3 - Running An App That Watches The Clipboard Will Cause Other Apps To Crash When You Copy From Them.

We're all happy to see Android 4.3 finally make its appearance, especially as it brings some pretty important and positive low-level improvements like Bluetooth Low Energy and TRIM support. Unfortunately, new versions often introduce new bugs that slip by even the most diligent testers. Jelly Bean 4.2 had its fair share of issues, including an almost comically bad oversight: the total annihilation of December in the stock Contacts app. This is why each major release is often followed by a couple of bug fix OTAs in the following weeks.

[Deal Alert] NFC 12-Pack (10 NFC Tags + 2 NFC Keychains) By TagsForDroid Is Just $12 (40% Off) On Amazon [Update]

Update: The discount on the 12-pack of tags has been reduced to 20%, bringing the total price up to $15.98.

They apologized to those customers who couldn't get an order in quick enough to take advantage of the deal.

The NFC functionality included in most newer Android smartphones is pretty neat, but the utility is limited by the NFC-enabled hardware you have on hand.

[Hands-On] DraStic Is The Android Nintendo DS Emulator You've Been Waiting For

Android emulator fans, meet you new best friend. Yesterday the DraStic Nintendo DS emulator was published to the Play Store, for the admittedly high price of $7.99. It's not the first DS emulator for Android, but it's far and away the best - the combination of smooth performance (on sufficient hardware) and a stupefying amount of options to adapt the DS ergonomics makes it an easy recommendation.

Most of the existing DS emulators are based on code for Windows programs, making them unbearably slow on Android.

'Top Men' Pull Through – Netflix Updated With 'Fixes' For Android 4.3

Last week, we heard from Dan Morrill (via Reddit) that "top men" were working on the "sleep of death" issue that caused 4.3 devices to become unresponsive if they fell asleep while streaming from Netflix through the Chromecast.

Tonight, though, it looks like the issue is already fixed with Netflix's update to version 2.4.1. We've been testing the update since it popped up earlier this evening, and haven't experienced a lockup yet.

PSA: Straight Talk Is Once Again (Kind Of) Selling AT&T-Compatible SIM Cards Online

Pre-paid smartphone users were in an uproar a few months ago when Straight Talk stopped selling AT&T SIM cards to new customers. At the time, all we were able to ascertain was that the cards were sold out online, but a few retailers like Walmart still had some in stock. Well, they're back – in a limited sort of way.
