[Why We Can't Have Nice Things] Google Halts Maps Maker Submissions Following Pissing Bugdroid Incident And Other Spam

Last month someone thought it would be funny to submit a depiction of a Bugdroid pissing on an Apple in Maps Maker. Google quickly took down the edit after images started spreading across the web, but it isn't stopping there. After experiencing an uptick in spam over the past few months, the company will now temporarily turn off the ability for users to submit Google Maps edits.

The shutdown will take effect tomorrow, May 12th. A notice is greeting users who head over to google.com/mapmaker.

HTC Releases DLNA App Into The Play Store Complete With A Few Minor Updates

Like a number of other device manufacturers, HTC releases some of its apps into the Play Store. From there, HTC devices can receive updates more quickly than waiting for over-the-air firmware updates. Apps remain exclusively available on the company's hardware, so this does nothing to open them up to more users.

The latest addition is HTC Service - DLNA. To explain this, get ready for a bunch of acronyms. This app is what enables your phone to work with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance Server). The background service lets devices connect via DMR (Digital Media Renderer) to play files stored in DMS (Digital Media Server).

You don't need an introduction to Fruit Ninja. You're probably playing it right now. It has attracted millions of players over the years, partly because swiping to cut things on a touchscreen is as intuitive as pressing A to jump.

So developer Halfbrick Studios has taken the same concept and adapted it for small people who are learning math for the first time. You don't just cut bananas, you cut the right amount of them.

Meerkat Live Video Streaming App Exits Its Invite-Only Burrow, Sticks Its Head Out Onto Google Play As A Public Beta

Meerkat integrates with your Twitter account to let you stream live video to the world (or at least anyone who clicks on your feed). If you've been waiting to play around with the service, or this idea just sounds invigorating to you, Meerkat is now exiting its invite-only beta and opening itself up to everyone on Google Play.

I hopped into the app long enough to watch a truck driver talk about his route and what he's hauling, see some guy chat really quickly in front of a computer, and start my own brief stream of a Chromebook sitting atop a desk.
