The Android Version Of The Dolphin Nintendo Gamecube/Wii Emulator Is Coming Along Nicely - Here It Is Running On A SHIELD TV

Emulating games is hard, y'all. There are a ton of classic game emulators for Android, and most of them work really well... replicating relatively ancient, low-power hardware for two dimensions. Even something like the 20-year-old PlayStation is difficult (but not impossible) to emulate on the latest mobile hardware, which is objectively about a hundred times more powerful. That's what you get when console makers create more or less customized hardware and software that doesn't have to play nice with any other platforms.

Popular Web Scheduling Service Doodle Releases Its Official Android App

Ah, work scheduling. I recall with fondness long hours spent in the Texas A&M Commons building trying to schedule two weeks of 24-hour emergency desk service around the personal and scholastic lives of a dozen sophomores. No wait, not fondness, that's not right. What's the word I'm looking for? Ah, that's it: abject loathing. Maybe if we had something like Doodle, I wouldn't have spent four hours playing Time Slot Monopoly every other Wednesday.

HERE Maps Adds Reversible Lanes Traffic And Direction In 12 U.S. And European Cities

In Lebanon, we have one seaside road where traffic direction reverses reliably at 11am and 11pm to lower congestion and help more people get into or out of Beirut as fast as possible. It doesn't do miracles on very busy days, but it helps a bit. The idea isn't unique to us and if you live in big metropolitan U.S areas with heavy traffic on some of the highways, then you know what reversible lanes are.

Awesome New Google Voice Actions Feature Remembers Which Apps You Want To Launch For Particular Commands

Earlier this week we spotted a new Google Voice Actions / "OK Google" feature - it's called preferred apps. The idea behind it is wonderful: if you use a particular voice action that maps to multiple apps on your phone, you can pick one, and from then on, Google will launch the activity in that app by default. It's simple and brilliant and I love it. Well, I would if Google's implementation was a bit more...
