There's a new Transformers game available in the Play Store, and it falls into the increasingly popular online battle arena genre. In TRANSFORMERS: Battle Tactics, you must build a team of Autobots and Decepticons to best your enemies on the battlefield. However, it's free-to-play, so is this one more than meets the eye? Nah, it's pretty much what it looks like.
For those of you who didn't grow to hate the original Wave Wave, developer Noodlecake has rebuilt the game with new visuals and gameplay. Frustration, however, remains perfectly intact, so newcomers should have their blood pressure under control before diving in. Take a look.

According to Bloomberg, Google and Twitter are renewing their vows after breaking up for a few years and recently figuring out through couples' counseling that they couldn't really live apart.

It's Material — pretty, simple, and elegant. It has a sliding navigation menu that overrides the entire screen and a cleaner toolbar with new iconography.
A few weeks ago, we brought your attention to the mysterious case of the missing Turbo Charger, an intriguing Australian tale of deception, thievery, and...wait, no. The story was uneventfully boring: Motorola's Turbo Charger, the one built for the global market, had failed to meet the Australian Electric Standards, and the company was shipping out a slower 850mAh charger in the box, along with a redemption offer to claim the faster charger once it gets certified and approved for the market.
