[Deal Alert] Telltales' Game Of Thrones Episodes Are Now $1.99 (60% Off) And The Entire Season Pass Is $4.99 (75% Off)

The way I understand it, Game Of Thrones is a TV show where every character that you love or hate dies, where people get terrified when Winter is coming, and where dragons and nudes cater to every person's weird and unfulfilled fantasies. Or something. I want to watch the show, but I can't handle all the suspense, so I'm going to wait until the last season starts and then binge watch it until I forget what daylight is and what real people do.

The Game of Thrones Android game is a different story though. It's an adventure game developed by Telltale, which has made a name for itself in this genre thanks to intriguing scripts and excellent voice acting.

Nokia Wants To Acquire French Digital Health Company Withings For 170 Million Euros

Ever since it sold off its mobile business to Microsoft and its mapping entity to a consortium of German carmakers, Nokia has been struggling to find its identity and reinvent itself amidst a changing and challenging ecosystem. Its network arm is still going strong, but the brand has lost much of, if not all of its halo when it comes to consumer-facing technologies.

Now Nokia might be looking at a new direction and an interesting way to sneak back into the market, as a digital health provider. It announced today that it wants to acquire Withings, a French company that specializes in Internet of Things products and connected health gadgets.

WSJ: Facebook Working On Dedicated Camera App For Still Photos And Live Video Streaming

Facebook wants you to share more - specifically, more photos and videos. With that in mind, the Wall Street Journal is today reporting that Facebook is working on a dedicated camera app to compete with the likes of Snapchat and Periscope, who are stealing the limelight away from Facebook's much-touted video platform.

The app would allow users to share photos to Facebook more easily and quickly than is currently possible - it's easy through Messenger, but sharing to your Timeline is a little more convoluted - plus stream live video with the tap of a button. Live video is of course new for Facebook, having launched on Android in February.

Android Wear: My Love & Hate (Video)

I’ve been a loyal Wearer (is that the right term?) since the launch of the 2014 Moto 360. I bought one as soon as I could, and I wore it every day. It didn’t exactly change the way I use my phone, but hey, I’m an early adopter. We get things before they’re great so we’re already there by the time they are. Well, I’m kind of still waiting.

Wear just hasn’t seen too many updates in terms of functionality and usability and it’s really starting to show. When you take a look at promo material for Wear, it’s painfully clear we’re still quite a bit off from having our wrists do most of the heavy lifting in our digital lives.

Motorola usually wants $299.99 for the smartwatch, but right now the company is offering the athletic-oriented Android Wear device for $100 less.

Twitter Now Lets You Report Multiple Abusive Tweets At Once

Twitter is one of the largest social networks out there. Sadly, where you have that much free exchange of dialogue, you also end up with a bunch of people saying and doing some pretty mean and offensive things.

Since bullying, mocking, and other forms of harassment don't always fit in 140 characters, Twitter is now giving users the ability to attach multiple tweets to a single report.
