A New Challenger Appears: Xiaomi's Mi Box Is A 4K-Ready Android TV Device 'Coming To The US Soon'

You might have noticed that there aren't a lot of Android TV boxes around. Aside from the original Nexus Player, the much-recommended NVIDIA SHIELD, and the generally regrettable Razer Forge TV, only a few somewhat random cable boxes and some Sony televisions are using Google's living room version of its mobile OS. But there's a surprise entry announced at Google I/O 2016: Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi. Its "Mi Box" Android TV device ticks all of the hardware boxes, but what's even more surprising is that it's coming to the United States.

Facebook Live Video Is Coming To Android Within The Next Week

There's this feeling floating around the Internet that Facebook is irrelevant. It's old. The kids have moved on. They're Tumblring, Vine-ing, Snapchatting, and Instagramming (okay, that one's owned by Facebook, but whatever). They wouldn't be caught dead using the same social network their parents sign into. Famous people aren't using it either. They've moved to Twitter.

What's a site like Facebook to do? Introduce live video.

Better Twitter Retweets Are Here, Except Not Yet On Android—Again

Retweeting something on Twitter amounts to taking that person's tweet and sending it out again on your own personal feed. To add something to the message, users have had to do things the old-fashioned way—beginning a tweet with RT and quoting the text manually.

Motorola Turbo Charger Appears On Google Play, Listed As Coming Soon

You can buy the Turbo Charger from Motorola's website for $34.99. But just like with brick and mortar stores, it's nice to have options. So if I may have everyone's attention, please direct your attention to the Play Store, where the charger is now listed as coming soon.

The Motorola Turbo Charger can plug into any device that draws its juice from a USB port, but if you pair it with something like the Nexus 6, it will recharge the thing in a fraction of the time a weaker adapter would take. Motorola says the plug will give its devices 8 more hours of battery life after just 15 minutes of charging thanks to an algorithm that manages up to 15W of power (though there's some small print to read up on).

Archos Releases Two New Apps For Suite Of Connected Home Objects

Readers may remember Archos' suite of connected home "objects" announced last December and officially detailed at CES. The suite includes a motion-sensitive camera, lights, a weather station, and a Smart Tracker.

The objects aren't actually available for sale just yet, but the manufacturer has added a couple of new apps to the Play Store to eventually assist in managing the network of smart objects - one that will allow you to connect to the devices from any Android device, and one specifically meant for the 7" Smart Home Tablet.
