Coin Is What The Physical Google Wallet Card Could Have Been, And It's Already Available For Pre-Order

We were ridiculously excited by the prospect of a physical Google Wallet card when we reported on it just over a year ago, but six months went by without a peep until eventually the project was canned. Thankfully, awesome ideas don't disappear just because one company decides it's not ready to make them happen. Coin, a startup out of San Francisco, has announced a card of its own that promises to deliver much of what we were excited to see Google pull off themselves.

[New Game] Gameloft's GT Racing 2 Is Now Available On The Play Store, Because Sony Won't Make Gran Turismo For Android

Gameloft introduced us to GT Racing 2 two months ago with a strange focus on Mercedes-Benz cars, but now the full game is available with a full complement of manufacturers. GT Racing 2 is a free download in the Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 or higher. You'll need just under a gigabyte of free storage to download it (not to mention a decent connection).

GT Racing is Gameloft's take on a racing simulator, a la Gran Turismo or Forza, as opposed to the more cartoony style of Asphalt.

[Deal Alert] PhoneSuit 2600mAh Flex Pocket Charger Available For 50% Off, Get It Now For $29.99 With Free Shipping

PhoneSuit's Flex Pocket Charger is smaller than most options out there, but in this case, that's a good thing. This external battery pack plugs into your phone's micro USB port and rests there while it recharges. This makes it more mobile than the significantly larger 15,000mAh battery backs that you would typically leave stationary while your device charges, though that also means it will likely only recharge your handset once. Now it's available from Tanga for $29.99, a 50% discount from its usual price.

Google Now is pretty amazing, and it just keeps getting better as Google finds new ways to expose knowledge from its massive data repository. It's hard not to become addicted to everything that Now can offer. But what if you just got your hands on Google's latest flagship phone, went through the setup process, and then discovered Google Now doesn't work? Not only have some Nexus 5 owners had this experience, a few of them have even seen Google Now stop working across all of their other devices.

ISIS Mobile Wallet Finally Launches On Verizon, AT&T, And T-Mobile, Probably Wasn't Worth The Wait

Remember when everyone was pissed off that the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus couldn't use Google Wallet because of "security concerns"? ISIS Mobile Wallet, the alternative carrier-sponsored NFC payment system (and the reason that last sentence was equipped with sarcastic quote marks) is finally available, just two years after Google Wallet was coincidentally blocked by the carriers that are pushing ISIS. Nice work there, fellas.

ISIS has been in a beta testing mode in limited markets for just over a year - the necessary Android apps have been available on the Google Play Store since then.

[New Game] Sega Releases Football Manager Handheld 2014, Its Latest Treat For Soccer Fans Who Prefer Not To Run Around

American football fans, sit this one out. Sega's latest game is geared towards the other kind of football, the one that, you know, people actually play with their feet. This popular series turns soccer fans into managers of their own professional club. From the confines of their Android device, players can manage most aspects of running a team for $9.99. Yeah, that's a bit pricey for a mobile title, but calling the shots doesn't come cheap, even virtually.
