Time Warner Cable Remote / Guide App Coming To Android At End Of November, Live Streaming On Ice Cream Sandwich Tablets Early 2012

Likely not wanting to get left behind by the likes of Comcast, whose XFINITY for Android app has been quite well-received, Time Warner Cable is preparing to release a comparable remote control app for its cable subscribers at the end of November.

The app will incorporate full set-top box remote control functionality, access to the DVR interface, and an in-app 7-day programming guide.

The app is being developed for Honeycomb tablets (the test device looks to be a Galaxy Tab 8.9 or 10.1), and TWC has indicated that it's possible the release could be pushed back a little beyond November because of a heavy product release schedule this season.

Titanium Backup [Pro] Can Now Restore Apps From ClockworkMod 5 Backups

Well, this didn't take long. A little while ago, a new app called AppExtractor that can restore individual apps from ClockworkMod backups appeared in the Market seemingly out of nowhere. The app was welcomed by many of us who do custom ROM flashing here and there, sometimes wishing we could only restore a few little things from our Nandroid backups rather than having to restore whole ROMs.

As of today, Titanium Backup, sort of a de facto app in the app backup/restore business on Android, can now do the same thing.

Looking to take players' experience over the top, MadFinger Games opened a thread on their own forums earlier this month, indicating that they were working hard on multiplayer capabilities for Shadowgun, asking for users' "wishes, opinions, or ideas."

[Updated x4: Issue Fixed] Privacy Advisory: Dolphin HD Sends URL Of Every Page You Visit To A Remote Server (In Plain-Text)

Hot on the heels of the previous privacy/security advisory about A.I.type Keyboard sending your keystrokes to the cloud in plain-text, some of our commenters pointed out another, much more popular app that does something similarly privacy-invading.

Description

As it turns out, Dolphin HD, one of the top browsers the Android platform has to offer, sends pretty much every web page url you visit, including those that start with https, to a remote server en.mywebzines.com, which belongs to the company.

[New App] Need To Keep An Eye On System Stats? Check Out 'Cool Tool'

On Android, there are plenty of ways to monitor your processor, battery, RAM usage, etc. However, there is really no way to monitor said information while continuing to do other tasks, since Android only allows one window in the foreground at a time. That's where Cool Tool, a simple resource monitoring app, comes into play.

Cool Tool is different than other resource monitors on Android because it has an option to stay on top of other windows or the notification bar, allowing you to constantly monitor your hardware statistics.

The Adventures of Tintin is certainly one of the most enduring comic book series, making its debut in 1929, and finally finding its way to the silver screen in 2011.
