Strategy Analytics Says Manufacturers Shipped More Than A Billion Android Phones In 2014

Think of the number one billion. A billion of just about anything is a lot - people, bananas, cars, pints of novelty ice cream flavors. According to a report published by market research firm Strategy Analytics, the number of Android powered smartphones shipped last year was approximately one billion, forty-one million, seven hundred thousand (give or take a few tractor-trailers worth). That's about one Android phone for every seven people on the planet, not counting tablets, set-top boxes, and other Android-powered devices.

Today they published the revived game in the Play Store, right on schedule (those DotEmu folks are pros, I tell ya). You can buy the game for $9.99 - pricey, but not unreasonable - for tablets and tablets only.

CaastMe Is A Clever Way To Share Links To A Computer From Your Android Device Using QR Codes

There are no shortage of ways to get links from one device to another, but this often involves signing up for a service and leaving behind a record of what you're sharing. CaastMe is a new Android app that has an innovative way of getting around this, account-free.

The software relies on QR codes, but it uses them in the opposite of the way you would expect. Instead of prompting your device to open a URL, CaastMe tells the computer displaying the code where to go.

Spacetime Studios Says Development Of Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, And Star Legends Has Stopped

As a wise man once said, all good things must come to an end. (I'm fairly certain it was Captain Picard.) So it is with a handful of mobile RPGs and tower defense games from developer Spacetime Studios. In a post on the company's official forum, CEO Gary Gattis said that the games Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, and Star Legends will not be getting any future updates, including the standard weekly bonuses and seasonal events.

You Can Now Send Money Through Desktop Gmail In The UK Using Google Wallet

Over a year after quietly introducing the feature in the USA, Google has added the ability to send money through Gmail in the United Kingdom. While Google likes to emphasize the fact that you're sending the money through Gmail, it's really done via Google Wallet. The main benefit is that you can embed the send/receive request within an email message and Google will do the heavy lifting for you in terms of enticing the recipient to sign up for a Wallet account, if necessary.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a big tablet. Unsurprisingly, it comes with a hefty price tag to match.

AT&T still sells its 4G LTE-enabled version at $899.99.

Let that sink in.

[Nom Nom No] Chrome Beta Now Lets You Disable Third-Party Cookies While Still Allowing First-Party Ones


Tucked inside yesterday's Chrome Beta update to v41 was a handy new feature for privacy-minded users and everyone who likes to practice safe web browsing. Although we updated the post with the feature, we thought it better to highlight it again in a separate article.

[Hands-On] Saygus V2 Pre-Orders Open Today — $549 If You Act Quick And Want The Most Intriguing Smartphone We Saw At CES

Update: Pre-order registrations have been extended "due to high demand," until Monday February 2nd, 12pm MST. Beside the $50 discount you get for registering, you'll also receive an extra battery and a glass screen protector. Pre-orders should open on Monday, but the discount and freebies will be gone then.

Beside Energous, the most novel company I met with at CES 2015 was Saygus. Here was this start-up I hadn't heard about touting a superphone of sorts, with bells and whistles to rock most bells and blow most whistles, an unconventional product that seemed, on paper, more hallucinogenic than the most optimistic crowd-funding project you've come across.
