IOC's Olympic TV App Is Just In Time For The 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games In China, Available Everywhere... Except China

Well this is amusing. The International Olympic Committee has released an Android app into the Play Store that is arriving just in time to stream video from this year's Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will take place in Nanjing, China. Ironically, though, China is the one place where Olympic TV is explicitly labeled not to work. It's written in plain sight on the app's Play Store page.

The event will take place this year from August 16th to the 28th and provide teenagers with a venue to compete in all manner of athletic games.

[New App] Ingress Players Now Have A Slick-Looking, Non-Official Android Wear Watchface To Call Their Own

Those of you who happen to own an Android Wear device can just head over to the Play Store and give this free Ingress-integrated watchface a download.

[New App] KnightRider Android Wear Watchface Makes You Almost As Stylish As Michael Knight

You didn't have to be alive in the 80s to one day see Michael Knight's communicator watch in Knight Rider and know that it was a cool piece of tech. Sure it may have looked like an old Star Wars AM radio watch, but the functionality this thing packed more than compensated. This watch allowed Michael to talk to his supercar, and now a strikingly similar watchface has appeared for Android Wear, which lets you talk to your superphones.

[Update: Google Blocks Email With Sneaky Characters] Gmail Users Can Now Communicate With Email Addresses Containing Accented Or Non-Latin Characters

Update: Opening up email to a greater number of characters is a good thing for users, but it's also exciting for spammers. Certain characters - such as ဝ, ૦, ο, and the letter o - look very similar. Too similar, really. So Gmail will now block email addresses attempting to take advantage of this, and it will use the Unicode Consortium's "highly-restricted" specification to do so. Wဝ૦ο!

It may seem to many of us that there are an endless number of email addresses available out there, but if your name contains characters that don't fit somewhere between A-Z, that illusion is shattered pretty quickly.
