All Hexage Games 50% Off Until Monday

There's no question Hexage's Android games are state-of-the-art - in fact, EVAC was #1 on our list of non-Angry Birds games - but there are those of you reluctant to spend your hard-earned cash on a game for your phone.

In an effort to alleviate that stress, the game development firm has cut the prices of each and every one of its games in half until Monday, January 3rd. As a reminder, Hexage is the company behind the following games.

PSA: There Are Some Trojans In Some Apps... Somewhere. Remain Vigilant, Friends.

I've been avoiding this one for a few days because it doesn't really seem like much of an issue to me, but it hasn't gone away, so I've changed my tune. Maybe this post will help somebody from getting a Trojan - and that has to count for some brownie points or something, right?

For the past few days, security-app maker Lookout (who you may remember for their App Genome Project) has been warning folks about a new AndVirus (yeah, just made that up) they've found called Geinimi.

CNN Money: Could Google Become A Carrier?

Yesterday, CNN Money posted a rather interesting piece that posed the question: could Google become "your new phone carrier?" If you're anything like me (and I hope for your sake that you're not), your first response was "Google? A carrier? #$%^ Yeah!" But as awesome as I'm sure that would be, the more I think about it, the less likely it seems.

I'm not saying it won't happen. Hell, even the author of the article (David Goldman) doesn't seem sure of the idea.

Viewsonic G Tablet, From Rags To Riches - An Owner's Guide To Making The Best Of A Great Tablet

Over the past couple of weeks, I spent countless hours debating whether I should wait around a few months and see what tablets come out or get one now. In the latter case, which tablet was right for me?

Let me start out with what I wanted out of a tablet. First and foremost, I needed a device that let me check my email and read the news. Every morning, I wake up, grab my Sprint EVO 4G, and check my email using Gmail and my work email using Exchange.

Android, Evolved - MIUI Beta #5 Coming December 31st. If You've Never Witnessed MIUI, This Is The One To See [VIDEO]

The MIUI custom ROM has pushed the limits of creativity and customizability ever since it was unleashed a few months ago by Chinese developers, seemingly out of nowhere. At times, you can't even recognize that this is actually Android, which, I suppose, is actually a compliment to Android itself. If it didn't resemble the iPhone UI so much at times, I would have probably enjoyed it a lot more, but nevertheless, it's incredible to see what a smart group of talented people can come up with when they put their minds together.

[Comic] Plan: Buy Nexus S, Write Awesome Android App.

If you're ever looking for a good webcomic, look no further than Abstruse Goose. Case in point: today's Nexus S comic. There's not much to say about it, so here it is:

Rovio_is_pure_evil

Bonus lols: the image name is "Rovio_is_pure_evil.PNG."

Probably safe to say we've all been in a similar situation - which is pretty good for Rovio.

[Rumor] Samsung To Reveal Galaxy S2 (And Maybe Tab 2) At CES. Or Is It MWC?

Oh, internet... we have such a love/hate relationship, don't we? Those of you who follow regularly know that I'm generally pretty skeptical of rumors and speculation - although I'm really not a contrarian by heart. This time around we have two similar, but fundamentally different, rumors floating around.

Both involve Samsung and the successor to the Galaxy S (which the internet has dubbed... wait for it... the Galaxy S2). And while there's little doubt there will be a successor, that's about the only common thread to the rumors.

[Update: Hands-On] Honeycomb Music Player Leaked, Now Available To Download

We've known about the fancy new music player contained in Android 3.0 (aka Honeycomb) since Google I/O, but up until now, we haven't really had a chance to get a look at it ourselves. Well the suspense ends today - an APK has just been leaked and is now available to download.

First off, the much-anticipated wireless syncing feature isn't here, as this is most likely a beta version of the final app (which wouldn't be surprising considering how buggy it is in its current incarnation).

QuickDesk Dev Releases Calendr 1.0 To Android Market, Minimalists Rejoice!

Faruq Rasid, the developer behind QuickDesk, has developed and now finally released a minimalist calendar widget called Calendr that's inspired by Clockr. The widget is simple and attractive, showing your next upcoming event, as well as the date and time, from your Google Calendar.

Unlike early Alpha versions, the 1.0 version of Calendr only updates when an event is created, edited or deleted.
