Are you tired of seeing Starz on your television screen? Do you want to watch Starz as you sit on your back porch? Wouldn't it be great to have your favorite Starz content available on the go? If you feel this way, thank your lucky Starz, because the Play Store has just been hit by a trio of video streaming apps that allow you to see Starz wherever your heart desires.
The Starz trio includes STARZ Play ...
And MOVIEPLEX Play.
As you've probably noticed, the interface is largely consistent across the three apps.
Most smartphone manufacturers have chosen to ignore Intel's mobile offerings in favor of ARM chips, but Intel is hoping to change their minds with its latest microarchitecture. Today Intel unveiled Silvermont, which reportedly will result in new mobile chips with three times the performance of current-gen Intel Atom processors. Alternatively, Silvermont will enable Intel's next-gen Merrifield smartphone chips to achieve the same performance levels as Clover Trail+ with one-fifth of the power consumption.
Want more specifics? Other advertised features of Silvermont include:
A new out-of-order execution engine enables best-in-class, single-threaded performance.
A new multi-core and system fabric architecture scalable up to eight cores and enabling greater performance for higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient out-of-order support for a more balanced and responsive system.
Changelog Droid, an app that not only shows changelogs of applications you have installed all in one convenient place but also monitors apps that you haven't installed and keeps history of changes over time, is on sale for 24 hours. And by sale I mean it'll cost you about free fifty. I've played around with the app for the last half an hour and found it to be very polished, pleasant to use, and, more importantly, actually handy. It even has a DashClock extension.
Since the Play Store doesn't allow apps to switch from free to paid, the developer is using the next best method - a coupon code.
My Google Glass unit has finally arrived. I've had a few days to play with Google's fancy new heads-up display, so it's probably time for some first impressions. A full review will be coming at some point.
One of the most striking things about Glass is just how well put together the whole package is. Everything about the design, from the hardware, to the typography, to the cool little whoosh noises it makes just oozes polish. What's here is certainly not finished, but even in this state it is easily the slickest product Google has ever produced. Glass feels like the culmination of the new, design-focused Google.
About three weeks ago, Paradox Interactive released what could possibly be one of the best game trailers we've ever seen. It was for its then-upcoming game Leviathan Warships, and was chock-full of more ship puns than you can shake a stick at.
In fact, it was so good they decided to release a second trailer, with even more puns.
If you've had enough puns (I'm kidding – there's no such things as too many puns) and are ready to actually play the game, it's now available in the Play Store. The second trailer above notes a price of $10, but it's listed for $4.88 right now – most likely a launch sale price.
A couple of weeks ago, we tipped you off to a pretty great deal on a 32GB Transformer Pad Infinity from Woot. The first sale must have been a success because Tech.Woot is back with the 64GB model for just $440 + $5 shipping. Amazon's price has never dipped below $480 for this exact model, and it currently resides at $530.
10.1" Super IPS+ Display @ 1920x1200
nVidia Tegra 3
1 GB RAM
64 GB Flash storage + MicroSD slot
8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front camera
Approx 9.5 hours battery life (25 Wh)
Like before, these are brand new units without the keyboard dock, which can be found for $126 here.
If you've longed for the abstract and ambient world of strategy game Auralux, but don't have a Tegra-powered device, good news is afoot: the most recent update adds support for non-Tegra devices. Exciting, no?
That's not all, either – it also brings a new level pack "where you invade enemy territory," one new free level, full gamepad and Shield support, and an "important stability [fix] on Nexus 7 devices."
All in all, this is a pretty good update, especially for those who haven't yet gotten the opportunity to play the game in the first place. The game is a free download in the Play Store, but you'll have to fork over some cash for extra levels.
How would you like to score a pretty sweet deal on a Galaxy S4? For today only, DailySteals is offering the international variant of Samsung's flagship phone for just $679. The same model appeared on eBay Daily Deals a couple of weeks ago for $700, but only stocked 200 units and sold out before most people could get their orders in.

If you haven't checked out AOKP.co for a while, we couldn't blame you. The old homepage for the Android Open Kang Project ROM and Team Kang left something to be desired - namely, a new homepage. The wraps are off of the latest adjustment to the AOKP site, and wow, they've really done something with the place. In addition to a ton of new features accessible from the get-go, the entire page has been given a swag-worthy 80s makeover that might just be described as "awesome, awesome to the max."
Emblazoned with the title "Android. Infused with magical Unicorn Bytes", the new page give some quick navigation up top before going image-heavy to highlight some of the custom ROM's more unique features.
Note from Artem: The post's author, Justin Case, also known as jcase in the Android community, is an xda Elite Recognized Developer, AP team member, and an all-around knowledgeable guy when it comes to Android's internals. When he speaks, I tend to listen.
His post has caused some unwarranted drama in the community, and I wish to set this subject straight as much as I can. AndreiLux is pointing out a new feature in Samsung Galaxy S4 kernel called CONFIG_SEC_RESTRICT_SETUID.
