I know what you're thinking. "Isn't that the lame tower defense game that's vaguely related to Warhammer?" No, this is the other new-ish Warhammer game—the good one. Warhammer 40k: Carnage is a side-scrolling shooter filled with chainswords, jump packs, and all the other gear an Ultramarine needs to get by. It's usually a $7 game, but now it's down 70% to just $1.99.

Then when people see it, they will be, well, just as confused as they were when they saw you hanging out by that old, abandoned record store last weekend.

[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.
