When it comes to device protection, there is no shortage of options out there on the great wide internet. With enough digging, you can find almost any different style of case you can think of, be it an on-device super-thin case, something ultra-durable, or a simple sleeve.

Electronic Arts seems to be one of the most disliked game developers on any platform, so it doesn't take much for the internet to rise up in anger against them. The release of Real Racing 3 with its heavy in-app purchases was reason enough to hurl some vitriol at EA. However, the game is free to try and there are a ton of officially licensed cars to drive. So is it really that bad?
If you've been patiently waiting for the sequel to popular top-down shooter Gun Bros, the wait is over. After teasing the release, Glu Mobile posted the game on the Play Store earlier today, giving Android the closest thing it's going to get to Gears of War for the foreseeable future. It's a free download, compatible with Android 2.1 and up, though the more advanced 3D graphics mean that older devices may struggle to run it smoothly.
Update: Twitter has removed the new detailed conversation view from the list of changes. We're not sure if that's because it's not there, or some other reason.
Twitter for Android was updated this afternoon with a few tweaks, bringing the app to version 3.8. Among the most notable changes is an enhanced conversation view, which now shows all replies (and related interactions) to a Tweet, whether going forward or backward in time.
AT&T started pushing Jelly Bean (4.1.2) to its variant of the Xperia T (the TL) earlier this month, but Rogers apparently wasn't far behind. The Canadian carrier just made the update available to its Xperia T, which should bring all the same goodies that the AT&T and International versions already have. Namely:
Ah, the golden age of pulp fantasy. When men were men, women were women, and gigantic, toothy, screaming monsters were everywhere. New iOS pilgrim God of Blades takes its inspiration from the muscle-bound heroes from Cimmeria, slaps them on a two-dimensional endless runner background, and throws in more swords, axes, and clubs with a nail on the end than any undead warrior could ever need.
The gameplay in God of Blades is a mix of endless runner platformers and the gesture-based fighters typified by Blood & Glory.
Get excited: HTC just dropped the kernel source for three handsets (admittedly, very late). Specifically, the HTC Butterfly, Desire SV, and One VX.
You can head over to HTC's developer website to pick up the files now. For the Butterfly and One SV, there are multiple packages for available for various regions.
A few days ago, Koush released his newly-updated Superuser app into the Play Store. At the time, he noted that it would be integrated into CyanogenMod nightlies in upcoming builds. As of the latest releases, the app is now the go-to for Su access on your device – but there's a kicker: if you go looking for it, you won't find it in the app tray.
You see, CM decided to literally integrate the app into the system, so you'll actually find it in the Settings > Superuser section.
