Well, it turns out those Android Mega Man ports look like a tremendous pile of crap

The title of this article gets the point across, but watch the trailer below to see what I mean.

Feeling flat, musicians? Google Home can play you a key - just ask it (update: it's really broken)

Here's a Google Home trick we haven't seen really publicized: the Assistant in Home can play you a six-note scale in any key. (Note: This does not seem to work on the Pixel Assistant. Sigh. Correction: See update, this is just really broken in general, unfortunately.) Just tell Home to play you any key - for example, "play me a B sharp" - and the Assistant will respond with an ascending six-note scale. Neat.

[Update: Android TV] This game is toast: I am Bread, from the makers of Surgeon Simulator, butters its way onto the Play Store

No matter how you slice and dice it, bread is awesome. And being bread, that's probably the dream, nay, the Holy Grain. Well, at least if you loaf bread as much as I do. See, I never knew I kneaded a game like this, but now that I know it exists, I can't wait to play it.

In "I am Bread," you control a slice of bread that's just doughing its best to survive the unsavory obstacles in its way.

T-Mobile's next 'Un-carrier' announcement will come on January 5th at CES

In John Legere's continuing effort to will himself into the role of mobile rock'n'roll Jesus, the T-Mobile CEO has released a teaser trailer for the carrier's next Un-Carrier event. Exactly what will happen at the event isn't being disclosed - in fact, the whole point of the video is "wouldn't you like to know?" We did find out that the announcement will come on January 5th in Las Vegas, not-so-coincidentally at the same time and place that next year's CES will be going down.

The Google Pixel appears to have a widespread speaker issue, but a software fix could address it

We've received a number of tips about this one, and it's definitely a bit annoying: the Google Pixel appears prone to producing harsh clipping or distorted sound through its speaker when playing certain audio at maximum volume. This trailer of The Mummy demoes the problem well - the first clip you'll hear is around 10 to 11 seconds in, and the issues continue thereafter. The problem appears to be widespread and currently is part of a post on r/android with nearly 1800 upvotes, as well as a long thread on the Google Product Forums. The issue does not seem to affect all Pixel handsets - some do not produce the distorted sound even at maximum volume, and there does not seem to be any consistency in terms of Pixel versus Pixel XL handsets being affected.

Ouch: iFixIt slams Apple's AirPods as "low quality," unrepairable, and unrecyclable

Wireless earbuds - truly wire-free ones - have been a very popular consumer product concept for some time now. Apple's AirPods are easily the most well-known, but they're far from the first. They are, however, according to iFixIt, a poster child for the environmental and practical problems that such products pose. Namely: they are completely unrepairable and essentially unrecyclable. And, according to iFixIt, they aren't especially well-made, either.

"David, this is Android Police" - I know, I know. But AirPods are probably the most hyped consumer electronic of the holiday season in 2016, and even if they don't work [fully] with Android phones, they are doubtless going to be imitated and iterated upon by tons of other companies in 2017.

Minecraft PE 1.0 is available with higher max block height, igloos, and an endgame dragon

Minecraft hit upon something primal in our human nature; we like to make things. This game lets you make pretty much anything your heart desires, provided it's composed of voxel-like blocks. The previously teased v1.0 update to Minecraft Pocket Edition has landed on Android, and it adds a number of nice gameplay extras, plus there's something of an endgame with a dragon to slay.
