A little more than a week ago, a major Skype update hit the Play Store with an all-new, Holo-fied look and overall sleeker appearance. But, that update also brought some annoyances, as well as its fair share of bugs. Today, Skype has released another update that should fix at least some of those issues.

Of the quirks that came along with the Skype 4.0, the difficult process to sign out was among the most frustrating.

[Craaaaaazzzzy Money] Sega Finally Releases Crazy Taxi For Android

PSA: Phone Calls Are Returning To Gmail, Also Integrated With Google+ And The Chrome Extension

The transition from Google Talk to Hangouts added a lot of new features, but making phone calls from Gmail didn't come along for the ride. There was still a roundabout way of adding phone numbers to a Hangout, but it was too awkward to be useful. Finally, Google has announced that phone calls are again possible from Gmail, but that's not all. Phone calls are now built into Hangouts in Gmail, Google+, and the Chrome Extension.

Verizon Galaxy S4 VRUAME7 Update Available Via Desktop Tool - Blocks Existing Root Methods And Patches Bootloader

Samsung Galaxy S4 owners on Verizon, there's a new update available for your phones. But don't bother checking your Settings menu for an over-the-air prompt: it's only available via the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant after connecting the device to a PC. Standard users should be fine, but rooted users (or those who intend to root or flash a new ROM sometime in the future) should avoid this one. According to several posters on XDA, the VRUAME7 patches existing root methods, and flashes a new version of the locked bootloader that prevents users from flashing a pre-release kernel, effectively blocking another path to root.
