Now you can play with Lego blocks on any device that supports Google's web browser of choice just by visiting the Build with Chrome website. Why? Because building things with blocks is fun. It's a task so intuitive that even babies can grasp it without being directed, and regardless of how old you are, the fun just doesn't go away. The tools may change, but the core concept doesn't need much in the way of innovation.

Pingdom lets you track the status of your servers and websites, and now a new Android app is available to help you keep a watchful eye from a mobile device. This isn't the first piece of software from the company to enter the Play Store, but if you have the previous version installed, you will need to reinstall the new version separately, as it's a completely separate app.

Google Now's website has received a slick new redesign, and it's quite a looker. The landing page is now rich with animations and background video, providing an experience so immersive that if you haven't already tried Google Now, or even if you've just been taking a break, you might want to go fire it back up. The page offers a great primer for anyone who isn't already aware of what Google's portable personal assistant is capable of.

The Good Ship Motorola has more leaks in it than Stan Rogers' famous Antelope, and the Moto G (and the Moto DVX, which is probably the same thing) has been the only significant device we've heard about since the X. It looks like Motorola is almost ready to take the wraps off of the phone officially: the website moto-g.com went live early this morning with a teaser for an event on November 13th.

The new Play Store is certainly snazzy, but a lot of the functionality of the older site has been missing ever since it got a fresh coat of digital paint. One of the most bemoaned omissions was contextual keyboard shortcuts, especially handy for touch typists whose fingers never leave the keys. (ThinkPad users, I'm looking at you.) Good news, everyone: as of late yesterday, they're back.

If you haven't checked out AOKP.co for a while, we couldn't blame you. The old homepage for the Android Open Kang Project ROM and Team Kang left something to be desired - namely, a new homepage. The wraps are off of the latest adjustment to the AOKP site, and wow, they've really done something with the place. In addition to a ton of new features accessible from the get-go, the entire page has been given a swag-worthy 80s makeover that might just be described as "awesome, awesome to the max."

Blogging is a cruel mix of trying to come up with interesting content and struggling with the software to make a good site. For people who don't want to partake in epic battles against WordPress but need a little more control than Tumblr has to offer, Weebly provides a simple drag-and-drop interface and professional templates to quickly build a great looking platform on which to share your thoughts. While not as popular as the aforementioned WordPress (Alexa #21) and Tumblr (Alexa #32), Weebly (Alexa #301 and Google PageRank of 8) claims to have over 12 million users and is a force to be reckoned with.

It looks like Google is gearing up for the Glass Explorer program, launching the MyGlass companion app and a new Glass setup page, both accessible to the general public.

The companion app relies on Google's now-signature "Card UI," and the listing's screenshots show off some of the app's functionality, though Google reminds us "if you don't have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time. Sorry about that." The description goes on to comfort readers, however: "But if you swipe the screenshots to the right, you'll see there's a picture of a puppy in pajamas.

So, you've got an idea for the best app never to hit Android, and you know it'll take the world by storm once you get it published. There's just one problem: you don't know Java from an Indonesian island. You could quit your job, shop around for investors, hire programming talent, and try to make it on your own. Or you could submit your app idea to Dandy and let the people decide.

Too bad xkcd doesn't have a crappy app we could make fun of. That guy thought of everything!

If I click 'no', I've probably given up on everything, so don't bother taking me to the page I was trying to go to. Just drop me on the homepage. Thanks.

P.S. As always, don't forget to hover.
