If you love the idea of the PIE controls found in Paranoid Android but can't bear the thought of parting with CyanogenMod, break out the champagne, because the two are to be wed today. That's right – PIE controls are coming to CyanogenMod 10.1.

For those who may not be familiar with Paranoid Android, PIE is a unique navigation method that essentially removes the stock nav bar and turns it into a floating control panel, much like the Quick Controls option in the now-defunct stock browser.

Are you an AT&T U-verse customer who's been chomping at the bit to get your hands (or eyes, rather) on some sports action while on-the-go? Today's your lucky day – AT&T and ESPN just announced support for the WatchESPN app for qualifying U-verse customers. And by "qualifying" they mean "customers who actually have ESPN as part of their package." So, that should be pretty much everyone, right?

Either way, the app is free so you can hit up the Play Store to grab it, enter your U-verse login credentials, and away you go.

You'd think the concept of a lockscreen would be simple. It, you know, locks the phone. Several OEMs have still ended up with bugs that allow users to get around the lockscreen completely. The newest such vulnerability has been discovered in Sony's flagship, the Xperia Z. Just a few simple steps, and anyone can gain full access to the device.

In the video, you can see one Scott Reed demonstrating the problem.

I am going to show you a game. It costs about a buck on the Play Store and is very fun. However, once you begin playing it, you will have roughly five minutes until you either scream, demand a refund, or your head explodes. There are no other options. The game is called Puk. And it is insane.

The concept is simple. At the start of each level, you are given a set number of slingshot-able pucks (I get it!).

Given a long enough timeline, basically all carrier-branded Android phones will eventually reach the "free" price point on Amazon Wireless or Wirefly. That day has come for the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, as now both new Verizon customers and those eligible for upgrade can grab this device for a single, solitary penny. That makes it basically free.

The global rollout continues as Google adds yet another country to the list of places you can order a 16GB Nexus 7. The device showed up in the Play Store today for Rs. 15,999 (roughly $295 USD). No other variants of the tablet appear to be available, though. It's 16 geebees or bust. Currently the store says it will ship by April 5th, but you can order now.

Currently, the only content offerings from Google available on the Play Store are apps and books, but with the pace of advancement lately, it wouldn't surprise us if other services showed up before too long.

When Snapdragon processors with Adreno 320 GPUs were the hottest thing coming out of Qualcomm's factories, the company released Reign of Amira to show off the power of its then-flagship hardware. Now, the company is using a similar method with the game's sequel, Reign of Amira: The Lost Kingdom, which is available now exclusively for devices packing the Snapdragon 600 CPU (or supposed to be, rather – I was given the option to install it on my Nexus 4).

Today, Google announced a new update to the Google+ app that will be rolling out later today that brings a host of new features. For starters, the posts have been redesigned to look a little cleaner, provide more content up front, and are easier to interact with. For example, you can now swipe between photos in an album, and tapping content should take you directly to where you want to go.

If you just can't get enough of the calm, serene, zen-filled scenery of the deep forest, DualBoot Games' latest live wallpaper should help get your inner peace in check. Simply called Forest HD, this live wallpaper brings that famous DBG quality to your homescreen once again. Take a look:

At the current time there are only a couple of themes included, but several more, including a Field Pack, Stream Pack, and Customization Pack are "coming soon."

Forest HD will set you back $0.99, but if you're a fan of live wallpapers, this one is a must-have.
