GIFs Will Work Again In Hangouts 5.0

We've been hearing rumblings of an impending update for Hangouts, bringing it to version 5.0 and coming "soon." The update will allegedly resolve lots of lag issues, but it will apparently fix at least one other problem: GIFs.

In Hangouts 4, GIFs appear to send as static images, which kinda ruins the fun. Hangouts 5 appears to send GIFs as they were meant to be enjoyed, though - as you might expect - GIFs sent from Hangouts 4 to Hangouts 5 still won't work.

According to the latest distribution numbers, it's under one in twenty of Android users worldwide - the rest have upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) or later.

Adidas Snapshot App Can Tell How Hard And Fast You Kick A Soccer Ball Using Your Android Camera

How hard am I kicking a soccer ball? Not hard at all. I don't play soccer, or football as you folks living in most other countries call it. But if I did kick soccer balls—and by kick, I mean apply enough force to quickly send them in a straight direction, rather than nudge them awkwardly and accidentally off to the side—the Adidas Snapshot app might just pique my interest.

Snapshot takes footage of you kicking a soccer ball and determines from those frames just how fast you sent the thing flying. The app defaults to kilometers per hour, because only those of us who call the sport soccer have any interest in seeing miles per hour instead.

Classic Horror Adventure Game 'Sanitarium' Is Getting An Android Port By DotEmu, Set For October 29th

The point-and-click adventure game genre is one of the most immersive around. It typically doesn't seek to draw you in with over-the-top action sequences. Instead, you're drawn in by the sheer amount of attention and focus you must give to each detail as you click on every corner of the screen. When something freaks you out, part of the fear comes from just how hard you've been staring.

Sanitarium is one such game from nearly two decades ago. Released in 1998, the PC horror game sucked players into the mind of an amnesiac in a world teetering on the edge of madness.
