SuperSU Updated To v1.60, Compatible With Samsung's Latest Galaxy S 4 Firmwares With KNOX

These days, it seems like everybody is trying to make Android more secure. As usual, rooting and modding are often casualties of this effort. Just over a month ago Android 4.3 broke the existing model for root, forcing updates to existing methods, and now Samsung is rolling out updated Android 4.2.2 firmwares for the Galaxy S 4 which fully enable the company's heavily secured KNOX environment. Fortunately, Chainfire is already on top of it and has updated his popular root software, SuperSU, to be compatible with the new system.

A prototype device called the Run-n-Read aims to solve that dilemma with a wearable sensor that makes the text move up and down along with you.

The Run-n-Read is a tiny clip packed with sensors that can go on your collar or on a headband, if that's how you roll.

Google Launches A New Breed Of Chrome Apps For The Browser's 5th Anniversary, Promises Android Compatibility In The Future

As a Chromebook owner, I've waited a long time for Google to roll out a section in the Chrome Web Store dedicated to packaged apps. It didn't fundamentally bother me that many of the previous "apps" were just glorified bookmarks, I simply chose not to install them and desperately wanted a way to find the apps that were intended to run outside of a browser window.
