The Zero-Bezel And Sprint Network-Exclusive Sharp Aquos Crystal Is Now Available For $239.99 Off-Contract, $149.99 From Boost Mobile

The Sharp Aquos Crystal is very close to being an Android nerd's dream device. It has virtually no bezel (except on the bottom) and comes with a stock version of Android 4.4.2. It looks unlike anything else on the market in the US today, and many Sprint customers will no doubt be happy to pick one up from the carrier starting today at $239.99 off-contract. People who prefer to walk out without putting any money down can get the phone for $10 a month.

TwitPic Is Shutting Down On October 25th (No, Really This Time)

You're probably wondering if you somehow ended up on a post from a few weeks ago, but no, this is new. TwitPic originally announced its impending closure back in September, but then appeared to get a reprieve when a mysterious buyer emerged from the shadows to acquire it. Now? Nope, the shutdown is back on.

Google Opinion Rewards Can Now Display Your Full Reward History, Dates And Amount Included [APK Download]

You would think that with the popularity of Google's search engine, Gmail, Maps, Docs, and all of the company's other web apps, it would know everything about us by now. Millions of us have Android devices in our pockets capable of transmitting our location to Google servers every second of the day. But there's one thing Google hasn't been able to pin down just yet--our opinions. It wants to know these enough to pay us (kind of) for the information.

[Deal Alert] Grab A Soundfreaq Double Spot For $112 (25% Off) From Stack Social

I love Soundfreaq speakers. They offer big sound in a small package, generally look pretty damn good, and are always very reasonably priced. I reviewed the Double Spot a few weeks ago, which is probably my favorite Soundfreaq offering to date – it's a killer little speaker for $150. BUT! If you want it for fewer dollars, now's the time to buy. For the next two weeks, Stack Social is selling this mid-century modern speaker for $112, which is 25% off the normal price.

Twitter Introduces Audio Cards That Let You Stream Music Directly Within The App

People use Twitter to share just about everything: mundane thoughts, witty commentary, pictures of food, and their favorite sounds. That last bit is the only part of this list that requires a user to jump away from the app. Now the company is addressing that. Twitter has rolled out Audio Cards, a way for users to stream music and other sounds directly within the Android app.

The experience is not all that dissimilar to how Twitter handles images.

Source: Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA For Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi) And Nexus 10 Will Drop On Nov. 3rd, Other Devices Later In November

We have a reliable source (two, in fact) telling us that the first over-the-air updates to Android Lollipop will come not to the Nexus 4 or 5, but to the Nexus 7 (2012), Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi), and Nexus 10. Why? Because they're all Wi-Fi devices - supposedly hardware with cellular data will have to wait a bit longer to get the OTA, meaning the Nexus 4, 5, and 2013 Nexus 7 with LTE will be stuck a bit longer waiting for the L update.

Samsung Announces That The AT&T Galaxy Note 8.0 Android 4.4.2 Update Is Finally Going Out To Devices

Jelly Bean seemed to stick around longer than other versions of Android. While most previous iterations were content to move along with each point release, Jelly Bean stuck around for 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. It took quite a while for KitKat to arrive, and for some people, that wait has been longer than others.

If you purchased an AT&T Galaxy Note 8 back when it launched in 2013, you probably didn't think you would be stuck with Jelly Bean for this long.

[Howdy Ho] Zen Studios Continues Its Pop Culture Tour With South Park Pinball In Stand-Alone Game And IAP Flavors

After Star Wars, Marvel, and The Walking Dead, it seems like just about any property is fair game for Zen Studios' expanding pinball franchise. The latest addition is South Park, Comedy Central's foul-mouthed animated show now in its 18th season. As usual with Zen Pinball expansions, you can get the two new 3D tables as either a stand-alone paid app or as in-app purchase expansions to the original game. The separate app is $4, or each table is $2, so it works out the same.
