[Review] Though It's Still Being Polished, Bomberman Online Adds Online Multiplayer To An Addictive Classic

It looks like it has been pulled from the Market (we're not entirely sure why, but it probably has to do with copyright violation). Fret not - we've got the apk for you to download right here.

Seeing as Bomberman has been perennially resurrected since its 1983 release, chances are extremely high that you've played some variation of the game in your lifetime. Now, if you're like me, you seriously jones for some Bomberman action from time to time, and are only satisfied once you renter the Bomber Nebula to blow your way through mazes. Now you can carry the little guy in your pocket, and even play multiplayer with friends or random opponents.

Da Vinci THD To Be The First Full Tegra 3 Game, Bringing A Dynamic Online FPS Experience To Your Quad-Core Device

Built using Unreal Engine 3, Da Vinci THD is the first full game to appear for Tegra 3 devices, and seems to be packing some serious online FPS gameplay. The game is set during the Renaissance, just after Da Vinci's death, when "heroes of [the] Renaissance" begin battling to capture a mysterious machine created by the famed inventor and artist. The real story, though, is Da Vinci's gameplay.

Players can explore beautifully crafted environments, and utilize powerful weapons while battling with (or against) other players online. What's interesting about Da Vinci, is that there is a PC version in the works as well, which will open up a much larger opportunity for rich online play.

Scottrade Releases Android App That Lets You Stream Real-time Quotes, Trade Stocks, And More [Video]

Scottrade, a popular brokerage firm, just introduced the official Android app that lets its customers trade stocks using their mobile devices.

In addition to trading, transaction history, balances, order status, and account management, which is obviously limited to logged in users, all of the app's other features can be used by anyone, even those without a Scottrade account. These include:

  • receiving real-time streaming quotes (I'm impressed that these are real-time even for those not logged in - not bad, if true)
  • detailed research tools, including stock price histories, charts, fundamentals, insider info, market news and commentary, earnings, options, etc.
  • price alerts
  • SmartText for technical analysis, which seems to be some sort of a help system that explains technical terms around the app

The features are detailed very well in the video accompanying Scottrade Mobile's release.

PayPal App Finally Gets Check Scan And Deposit, iPhone Users Have One Less Thing To Brag About

PayPal for Android has, at long last, been updated with a killer-feature iUsers have enjoyed since last October: camera-based check scanning and depositing. As a frequent PayPal user, myself, I have to say: this is awesome. Checks are the very bane of my (financial) existence; I mean, who uses checks? Every time I get one of those evil little slips, I scurry down to my local Wells Fargo, wasting precious gasoline and time - assuming it doesn't just sit on my desk for a month, taunting me with its hand-scrawled promise of currency (if you haven't noticed, I'm kind of lazy.)

Yes, I'm poor

While I could wait for Wells Fargo to implement such a feature, I might be waiting a while: their Android app is still just a URL bar-less mobile web page.

Editorial: Google's Music Talks Aren't Going Well - Will Music Be Too Little, Too Late?

To answer the question, briefly: nobody really knows at this point. But I do think Google is going to have to make some sacrifices in the short term if the Music service is going to get off the ground. And that's because the record labels won't play ball - at least not by Google's rules according to All Things D, quoting two apparently well-connected sources.

Of course, the words of a couple anonymous music industry insiders aren't definitively representative of the feelings of all the (presumably numerous) parties involved in Google's Music negotiations. For all we know, those persons could be part of some of the industry's historically more stubborn labels.

Mozy Android App Now Available

Mozy, one of the most popular cloud backup solutions (I prefer and use CrashPlan myself), can now add the Android app to the list of features its users. Decho Corp, the company behind Mozy, announced Mozy for Android 2 weeks ago but only dropped the app into the Android Market about 2 hours ago.

While Mozy caught some heat and criticism for killing off unlimited backups a few months ago, those users who decided to stick with it will find the app quite useful:

  • you can browse all computers that are backed up under your Mozy account
  • your files are organized using the same original folder hierarchy you would expect
  • you can see photo thumbnails and quickly preview them without wasting too much bandwidth
  • you can download your backups to your Android device or email/share them out to friends and family

Mozy for Android won't blow anyone's mind - the inability to upload any data to it seems to me like the most glaring omission - but if you are a user of the service, it's nice to know this official version out there in case you ever need quick access to your files.
