Come on HTC, save some surprises for the event! We're mere hours away from the announcement for the new HTC One and the nuggets keep rolling in. This time it's a pair of fresh-faced apps on the Play Store: BlinkFeed Launcher and the HTC Service Pack. At present, both apps are incompatible with the HTC One released in 2013, suggesting they may either be intended exclusively for the m8 or Sense 6, or HTC is restricting downloads until after the event.

I know this is Chromecast country, but Roku was here first. The humble little WiFi streaming devices are competent and powerful, and they work with at least some online media sources that Chromecast doesn't. (Lookin' at you, Amazon.) If you're a happy Roku customer like me, then the Android remote app is probably a big part of your entertainment center. The new and improved version overhauls the user interface and adds one much-needed change.

In case you need more proof that the new HTC One is the worst kept secret in mobile tech since the Nexus 5, we offer People's Exhibit A W. This video gives the Verizon-branded M8 almost 10 minutes of time in the spotlight and provides a really good comparison to the first-generation HTC One.

At this stage, there's very little we don't know about HTC's new flagship. Nevertheless, the company is set to debut the M8 to the world tomorrow, and the device should be on sale soon after the press conferences.

In case you're counting, this is $200, or roughly 40%, off of the $499.99 MSRP. This would be a good deal for a refurb, so it's even better that these are new and factory sealed.

The Google Glass team knows that if you're thinking about mounting a computer on your face, you should do it with some style. Today, Google and the Luxottica Group announced a partnership that will see the two companies working together to design stylish and comfortable frames to pair with Google Glass. This follows the the Glass team's own Titanium line of frames launched back in January.

Google added native screen recording functionality in Android 4.4, but it only works over ADB and there's no audio output. Third-party developers have been working on ways to expand the usability of the native functionality, but the root only app SCR might be the closest to implementing sound and video perfectly after the most recent update.

In the new version, SCR gains support for experimental recording of internal audio with the video.

Update: Google has finally provided clarification on the recent Search update. Going forward, Google Now will shoot you an alert if it detects a traffic incident along your drive, and as you can see clearly in the image below, the app is pulling this information via Waze.
