Microsoft Reportedly Building A Platform To Extend Xbox Live Gaming Functionality To Android And iOS Games

Microsoft has already dabbled around with expanding the Xbox Live experience to mobile devices, but if a recent report from The Verge is to be believed, the company may be about to ramp up its efforts significantly. Our good friend Sources, who is familiar with Microsoft's plans, claims that Microsoft is building a platform that would extend Xbox Live functionality to Android and iOS. Instead of using Google Play Games or Apple's Game Center to track achievements, find other players, and compete with one another, you would be able to use Xbox Live instead.

Verizon Introduces New ALLSET Prepaid Wireless Plans, Smartphone Options Start At $45 For 500MB

Verizon is shaking up its prepaid plan options today, starting with a new name: ALLSET (ALL CAPS). Unlike some competitors, the basic plans start at a flat fee and the only expansion options come from Bridge data BRIDGE DATA add-on packs. The smartphone plan starts at $45 a month for unlimited voice calls and text messages, plus a somewhat paltry 500MB of data.

Feedly App Update Finally Changes Back Button Behavior To Be Less Annoying, Easy Switching To Next Feed

If there's one thing that's kept me from using Feedly's official app, as opposed to using more conventional RSS-style readers in the wake of the Google Reader collapse, it's the interface. Aside from the fact that I find it kind of clunky in general, the inconsistent back button behavior is a real downer. With the latest app update (version 18.1.3), it becomes a little bit less of a headache.

Weird Bug: Google+ Profiles Are Missing From Web Play Store Reviews [Update: They Fixed It]

No, you're not the only one seeing something odd in the web Play Store – the reviews are all missing the Google+ profile data usually associated with them. Everything says "A Google User" instead. You can still leave reviews, but they won't show up with your name online.
