Aereo TV Will Get Chromecast Support On May 29th, If The Supreme Court Doesn't Shut Them Down First

Yahoo Mail 3.1 Update Does The Opposite Of What Gmail Recently Did - Now Blocks Image Loading By Default

The option to toggle this is tucked away in the app settings, so there's nothing stopping users from going back to living wild and free.

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Drops Into The Play Store This May

The response to the first Warhammer 40k game on Android wasn't stellar, but that's mainly because it didn't look much like the epic gameplay we'd expect from the franchise. Well, perhaps the newly announced Warhammer 40,000: Carnage will get closer to the mark.
