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.

[New App] Motorola Drops Droid Zap Sharing App Into The Play Store, And No, You Can't Use It Yet

Remember the "Zap" feature that Motorola and Verizon hyped up during their latest press conference? You could be forgiven if you don't - the local sharing app is a solution looking for a problem, and it's only for the new DROID phones. Like the previous Moto-exclusive apps, Droid Zap has popped into the Play Store long before the launch of the DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX, or DROID Mini.

Leadwerks Makes Its Kickstarter Goal, Promises 3D Game Development On Linux, Will Come With Support For Android And Ouya

In the greater history of computer gaming, Linux is a relative newcomer, still missing out on quite a few AAA titles and only recently gaining access to Steam. While the library of games is growing for the open-sourced OS, the actual development process is still locked in to Windows. Most of the tools used for designing 3D models (e.g. Blender), landscapes, and other graphics have made the transition to Linux, but the primary coding tools are mysteriously absent.

Hands-On With The LG G2 - A Benchmark Beast With A Few Tricks Up Its Sleeve

LG has finally unveiled the latest addition to its "G" series line of flagship phones: the LG G2. They are clearly aiming at Samsung with this device, but is it enough to stand up against every other flagship on the market?

As with all modern smartphones, the screen on the G2 dominates the front face. But LG has taken steps to make this even more prominent - bezel size has been minimized on all sides to make this phone nearly "all screen." Thanks to LG’s use of on-screen buttons, when the display is off, the front of the device looks incredibly sleek.

Samsung Releases Free Source Code For Very Expensive Galaxy NX Camera

Another Android device is on the way to release, and that means it's time for the kernel source to be posted online. Samsung has been so kind as to drop the code for two variants of the Galaxy NX camera on us – the standard international, and a version for South East Asia.

The Jelly Bean-based packages are a hefty 1.1GB for each device, and Samsung's servers are pretty sluggish. Any developers that want to dig around in the code from this bizarre product should get that download started now.

[New Game] HandyGames Releases 1941 Frozen Front – Turn-Based Strategy Set During The Winter Campaign Of WWII

I could be mistaken, but I think someone might have made a game set in World War 2 at some point. Still, it's best to judge a game on its individual merits, and HandyGames has a lot of experience making games. 1941 Frozen Front is a turn-based strategy game that follows the rough outline of the famous Winter Campaign during WWII. You can play as the Soviets, seeking to repel the German invasion, or as the Germans as they battle toward Moscow.

Instagram For Android Hits Version 4.1, Expands Video Support To Ice Cream Sandwich And Introduces Video Importing

Instragram made the jump to the big 4.0 back in June, introducing the ability to record video clips over twice as long as those made using Vine. There was a catch, though. While many Android devices could playback video, only those running Jelly Bean could capture it. With the update rolling out today, handsets running Ice Cream Sandwich will also get to feel the love. And as any Instagram user would expect, these videos are just as susceptible to filters and frames as the photos the service is known for.
