2K Games Packs More Cards And Gameplay Enhancements Into This Year's MyNBA2K16 Companion App

I am many years removed from middle and high school, but in the adult world at least, it seems now is a much safer time to be a card collecting geek. But undoubtedly there are still guys who are too intimidated to spend their time playing Netrunner or Yu-Gi-Oh. Instead, they cloak their collector's impulse and stat obsession in a thin layer of NBA fandom. They get their card-battling fix from the MyNBA2K companion app 2K Games releases every twelve months.

MyNBA2K16 has gone live in the Play Store, and this year's addition brings new cards to collect, more ways to customize them, specialty bonuses, and other tweaks that enhance the core mechanic.

Showtime's Cable Subscription-Free $11 Monthly Plan Comes To Android In The Form Of A New App, Includes Android TV Support

You can now stream Showtime to your Android device for $11 a month. You don't need a cable subscription. All you need is a credit card, a compatible device, and the newly-released app.

For years now, customers who wanted to stream the likes of Showtime or HBO over the Internet have only had the option to do so if they paid for access in addition to an expensive cable plan. Fortunately 2015 has seen a shift. The option to pay $15 a month to get HBO Now without dealing with all that other tomfoolery launched on iOS in Spring before coming to Android this summer. During those hot months, Showtime announced it would let you do the same for $11―just not on Android yet.

Adidas Snapshot App Can Tell How Hard And Fast You Kick A Soccer Ball Using Your Android Camera

How hard am I kicking a soccer ball? Not hard at all. I don't play soccer, or football as you folks living in most other countries call it. But if I did kick soccer balls—and by kick, I mean apply enough force to quickly send them in a straight direction, rather than nudge them awkwardly and accidentally off to the side—the Adidas Snapshot app might just pique my interest.

Snapshot takes footage of you kicking a soccer ball and determines from those frames just how fast you sent the thing flying. The app defaults to kilometers per hour, because only those of us who call the sport soccer have any interest in seeing miles per hour instead.
