Alleged Photos Of HTC's M8 Again Show Dual Rear Cameras, On-Screen Buttons

HTC's upcoming M8 has been the topic of much speculation and many leaks (legitimate or otherwise) in recent weeks. @evleaks has shown us what is apparently HTC's latest Sense refresh for the unnamed device, confirming previous rumors that HTC would ditch capacitive keys in favor of on-screen navigation. We've also heard (and seen) rumors of dual rear-facing cameras.

Today, NowhereElse.fr has published blurry photos that appear to reaffirm both rumors, showing dual rear cameras, on-screen buttons, and - contradicting the previous "leak," - a joined array of two flashes in a single, continuous oval.

Flappy Bird Pulled From Play Store (And Appstore) As Promised

Yesterday, Dong Nguyen, creator of the bewildering smash hit Flappy Bird, announced via Twitter that he would be taking Flappy Bird down a day later.

The tweet has, of course, fueled endless speculation over the past 24 hours - after all, why would the creator of a game that's apparently racking up $50,000 per day in ad revenue suddenly pull the plug?

T-Mobile Wins Lawsuit Against AT&T's Aio Wireless For Magenta Trademark Infringement

Remember when we reported that T-Mobile was suing AT&T because the marketing for the Aio budget carrier used a shade of purple that was too close to T-Mobile's (literally) trademark magenta? Yes, that is a thing that happened. And apparently at least one Texas judge thought it was a valid complaint, because a federal court has ruled that Aio did, in fact, infringe on T-Mobile's corporate trademark.

Here's the PR statement that T-Mobile issued after the ruling:

Federal Court Rules that AT&T was Infringing on T-Mobile's Magenta Trademark Color and Orders an Injunction

A federal court has halted AT&T's transparent effort to infringe on T-Mobile's distinctive magenta trademark.

YouTube For Google TV Has Been Removed From The Play Store

In a move that few would have predicted, YouTube for Google TV seems to have been removed from the Play Store. People who have downloaded it previously can still see its entry, but beyond that, it's as good as dead. Further, there appears to be no alternative app to replace it. That doesn't mean there won't be, though. It's possible that the primary YouTube app could be updated with Google TV support in the future, but without a confirmation from Google, all we can do is speculate at this point.

Motorola Expands Droid Zap App To All Android Devices, Adds Zap Zone Photo Syncing For Verizon DROIDs

Motorola's Droid Zap, an exclusive feature for Verizon's 2013 DROID line, always seemed a bit on the limited side. Maybe that's because only those three DROID phones could actually use the service - other phones could receive photos from nearby users with the Zap app, but only the DROID Ultra, DROID Mini, and DROID Maxx could send them. Today Moto has seen the light and made both sending and receiving photos possible for any phone.

Word Lens Adds Support For Russian Translations Right Before The Winter Olympics In Sochi

Those of you lucky enough to be visiting Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics might not have opulent luxuries like floors or potable water, but at least getting around town will be a little easier thanks to the Word Lens app. The developers added support for Russian today, allowing users to translate signs, menus, and other text on the fly.

[New Game] LEGO City My City Brings Seven Blocky Mini-Games Together In An Ad-Less, IAP-Free, Kid-Friendly Bundle

Let's get this out of the way upfront, LEGO City My City has nothing to do with LEGO City Undercover for the Wii U. Chase McCain is not the protagonist, Frank Honey's antics are nowhere to be found, and there is no open world city to explore. This is a mini-game collection inspired by the LEGO City block set, with players getting to step into the blocky shoes of role models from all over town.
