If you've seen a couple of your friends flood their social feeds with single-panel comic strips starring people they know, chances are they didn't all suddenly learn how to draw at once.

Android And iPhone Fans Can Finally Agree On One Thing: The New CurrentC Mobile Payment System Sucks

Believe it or not, a lot of Android fans were happy to see Apple announce its new Apple Pay system with the iPhone 6. Thanks to its reliance on NFC technology (welcome to 2011, Cupertino!) and Apple's famous marketing muscle, it meant that NFC payments might finally start taking off, particularly in the US. The same NFC-equipped registers that work with Apple Pay generally work with Google Wallet as well.

Then popular drugstores CVS and Rite-Aid started blocking Apple Pay, which apparently means blocking all NFC payments, including Google Wallet.

Motorola Flip Case App Supports The New Window Case For The DROID Turbo

The new DROID Turbo for Verizon is a beast of a phone, but Motorola isn't letting it stand alone. The company also announced a proprietary see-through case for the device, with the somewhat benign name "Droid Turbo Flip Case." It's a pretty standard full-body flip case offered in either leather or nylon, but it includes a screen cutout and a transparent cover that lets you view the phone's active notifications, or even answer a call or take a photo, without opening the case.

Time Is A Race You Must Embrace, Chase, Retrace, Or Maybe Erase With Void Watch Face

Well son, time is but an illusion of change
Yesterday you had a tiny phone with Snake
Today you're overcome by a desire so strange
To buy the biggest phablet Motorola can make.

Time comes, flies, runs out, it's an elusive affair
Don't waste it by constantly checking the clock
Free yourself from it, put a blank screen on your Wear
It's always noon somewhere, Paris, Rio, or Bangkok.

One smart dev sensed the deceptive nature of time
He made a watch face so black it seemed like Void
So before I trip on a word that doesn't rhyme
I'll advise you to instantly download it on your droid.

Sony Hits The Play Store With A Companion App For The SmartBand Talk SWR30 And A Bunch Of Extensions

A reasonable person would expect Sony to release a single companion app for its SmartBand Talk activity tracker, which comes equipped with a small e-ink display. In this case, a reasonable person would be wrong. Sort of, anyway. Yes, there's one primary app for the SWR30, but you're going to need to install some separate extensions to get full use out of the fitness band once it hits store shelves next month.

Phone 2 Go Android App Lets Time Warner Cable Phone Customers Take Their Home Lines Away From The House

In this day and age, people increasingly dial a phone number expecting to reach you, not your house. As long as land lines are tied to a traditional phone, there's no way of knowing who's going to pick that thing up when it starts ringing, and people waiting on a call have to hover in the vicinity in order to hear it go off.

With Phone 2 Go, Time Warner Cable is giving customers the tools to free themselves from these restraints.
