[New Game] Glu Releases RoboCop Into The Play Store, Because A Struggling Cop Has To Push His New Movie Somehow

Meet Blackphone: The First Smartphone Designed Exclusively To Shamelessly Cash In On Internet Privacy Fear-Mongering

Privacy is important. In an age where, more than ever before, we are constantly exposing ourselves (no, not that way!) through social media, online services, and government security / surveillance directives, being a little concerned with your own privacy is totally normal. I get it.

Pandora Hopes To Spice Up Your Listening Habits With Personalized Station Recommendations

An update has rolled out to the Pandora Android app that builds upon what made the Internet radio service popular to begin with - making it easier to discover new music. To this day, Pandora still has an uncanny way of serving out songs that fit a listener's tastes precisely, especially for those who have been tweaking their stations for years.
