Google+ Post Gives Further Insight Into The Upcoming Google / Chrome Bookmarks Overhaul, AKA "Google Stars"

Bookmarks - we all use them. Sometimes. Maybe. Maybe not since like 2011 in my case (I really, really don't like bookmarks). But bookmarks have remained a relatively unchanged experience on desktop browsers even since the Netscape days - you CTRL+D, the page goes into a list, maybe that list has folders, and that's that.

This stale experience has helped give rise to read-it-later apps, content aggregators, and even social networks (Pinterest, for example).

Taking swipe payments with a mobile device is really handy, but if your connection drops out, it can quickly become a disaster. You probably won't get a lot of sales jotting down card numbers on a scrap of paper, but Square has a solution.

[New Game] Heroes: A Grail Quest Is Heroes Of Might And Magic-Inspired Mobile Strategy That's Free Of IAPs

It's a good thing originality isn't a pre-requisite for a good game, otherwise there would be far less enjoyment to be had on our mobile devices. Heroes: A Grail Quest is yet another clone, this time inspired by Heroes of Might and Magic, but that shouldn't prevent it from being a fun little experience. Game Dev Team, aside from having perhaps the most straightforward and honest name in the industry, has also developed the moderately well-received Sky Aces series and a 3D RTS based on mechs.
