AllCast Updated With Beta Support For Casting From Google Drive

All those photos and videos you're saving in Google Drive aren't going to fly through the internet and cast themselves on a TV, are they? Wait, are they?

[New Game] Upopa's Adorable, Terrifying Twitch Shooter Upgrades To Lasers And Aliens In Hopeless: Space Shooting

Hopeless: The Dark Cave was a striking little twitch game, made memorable by the juxtaposition of adorable little Marshmallow Peep creatures and the hulking, snarling monsters that wanted to eat them. In that title your only defense was old-fashioned lead (which was occasionally and tragically collected by the peeps themselves), but in the sequel, you get access to something with a little more pop. Hopeless: Space Shooting takes the original game and covers it with DayGlo colors and Buck Rogers lasers.

Team Win Recovery Project Releases TWRP For The Verizon HTC One M8

Verizon was the first US carrier to get the HTC One M8 on its airwaves, if only by a nose. Even so, it took the folks at Team Win Recovery Project a little longer to get their much-loved TWRP custom recovery onto the Verizon version of the phone, probably because it takes a little more effort to get around the carrier's locks. But whatever the reason, it's here, and ROM aficionados on Big Red will surely be grateful.
