The newest update to EA's free-to-play racing title Real Racing 3 has an assortment of shiny new things to dangle in front of you. Of course, you'll have to pay for most of them, but the game is a free download, and there aren't many games that can match to overall quality of the racing experience in RR3.
Included in this update are Ferrari vehicles like the 458 Italia and the V12-powered F12 Berlinetta.
The Kindle Fire HDX isn't your typical Android tablet, but it has largely been well-received by critics thus far and should make for an all around solid media consumption device. If you're already invested in Amazon's ecosystem, this is probably the best way to take advantage of it, for until Amazon drops an app for Instant Video into the Play Store, this is your only option for easily streaming those movies and TV shows to an Android tablet.
Wall Street analysts always read the tea leaves to come up with predictions of how a company will perform each quarter. If said company does better, investors are happy. If it does worse, investors are angry. The financial system is really based on our primal urges. Today, investors are very happy with Google. The company that spawned Android announced Q3 earnings last night that beat expectations, and the markets are going wild – Google stock is currently trading over $1000 per share.
Twitter has been steadily tweaking their beta release channel for the Android app, and the latest update removes one of the most poorly-received features from the last beta version. The translucent tri-button array at the bottom of the screen (post a photo from storage, take a photo, or a simple textual tweet) has been removed, and is now replaced with a single, consolidated button.
If you think that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a bit on the pricey side, you're not alone. Amazon, unstoppable global retailing juggernaut and champion of the underdog that it is, has decided to lighten the load a bit. If you purchase a new 16GB Note 10.1 from Amazon, you can get a free $50 gift card good for anything on the site. So basically, good for anything.
Of course the original price is still a whopping $549, so even assuming that you'll use every penny of the gift card, you'll still be spending five hundred bucks for a tablet.
Well, here it is, official and direct from Google's own image server (here's a link, though it may go down). Feast your eyes.
We found this minutes after a link to the Play Store listing for the Nexus 5 inadvertently appeared on a Play Store device splash. We see a new camera icon, a new phone icon (as suspected), and if you look closely, a new Gmail icon, too. Neat.
After many many leaks, we've got an official look at the Nexus 5 via the Play Store - the Nexus collection for the US is showing the icon for the Nexus 5 listing, along with the official description copy. Unfortunately though, the phone's actual listing is inaccessible.
So far we can tell that the device will start at $349 for the 16GB model specified in the listing's URL. This means the 32GB version we saw in the leaked manual will likely cost at or above $400.
Any-do has been one of the premiere to-do managers on Android since its debut, and now the same developers are building an alternative to Google Calendar for Android. Google has done a lot to make Calendar a better app as Android has evolved, but maybe there is room for some innovation in this space. Cal plugs into your existing calendar accounts seamlessly and presents your appointments in really slick interface with easy-to-access options.
Last weekend the Big Android BBQ took place in Hurst, Texas. It's a small but energetic little show specifically targeted towards Android developers (and the more rabid enthusiasts - you know who you are). The CyanogenMod team has attended before, but what with the incorporation, this year was a big deal, and the first time that they became an official sponsor. Today an outline of Cyanogen Inc. CTO Steve Kondik's presentation was posted to the web, along with his slides.
As long as bicycles have existed, those who wish to steal said bicycles have found new and inventive ways to get around whatever locking mechanisms are put in place to keep them safe. As a result, lock manufacturers have to come up with new ways to ensure their products do what they're supposed to: keep the locked bike from being stolen. Among all the different designs, the U-style lock has widely been adopted as the best and overall strongest.
