If you have an affinity for vintage cameras, you may find yourself toting around a light meter to make sure every exposure comes out just right. If you happen to also be a Glass explorer, David Young has a solution for that - Google Glass Light Meter, a piece of Glassware that entered Google's official collection just a few days ago.

As you may guess from the name, Light Meter turns your Glass unit into...

Samsung makes some surprisingly solid accessories for its mobile phones. A lot of people don't know this, because those accessories are really, really expensive, at least compared to most of the alternatives available. Today you can take half off of all the accessories - cases, cables, mounts, batteries, anything - that you buy from the official Samsung online store. But there's a catch: the coupon code is only good on items with individual prices below $50.

Cyanogen, Inc., the corporation that sprang from one of the largest families of Android custom ROMs, is expanding its corporate family once again. This time they've hired Leigh Momii, a Seattle-based executive currently with HTC's American arm. Momii has been employed by HTC for the last three and a half years, and intends to leave her position on Friday to become Cyanogen's Product Evangelist. She announced her plans on Google+ this morning.

So you want a new Galaxy S5? Will new-ish be good enough? An eBay seller has a cache of open box devices on sale at a downright reasonable price of $429.99. This is an unlocked GSM handset, so you can use it on AT&T or T-Mobile in the US.

Newegg wants to give you a good deal on the LG G Pad 8.3, as we posted yesterday. But strangely, they're giving an even better price to customers who peruse the company's official eBay outlet: $199.99, a full $25 off of the Newegg sale price. This is the same standard LG G Pad 16GB Wi-Fi model, sold new, and only available in black. Why eBay buyers get a better deal we couldn't say, but it looks like cheap things come to those who wait.

Last year Motorola announced the Droid phones alongside the Moto X, but this year the new Moto X is about to hit the shelves and there's still no official word on new Droid phones. However, a Google+ posting by HeloMotoHK claims to show the rumored Droid Turbo in all its glory. Yep, it still looks like a Droid.

Now that everyone seems to be carrying around smartwatches, Bluetooth headphones, and various other bits of electronic detritus, we need ways to keep them charged up when they inevitably die before the end of a long day. Samsung wants your Galaxy phone or tablet to be the backup battery for other stuff, like a Gear watch, via the brand new Power Sharing Cable. It's a little double-sided MicroUSB cable that allows one gadget to charge another, without any AC adapter or portable battery pack.

HTC Scribble is now available in the Play Store. What's that? You've never heard of HTC Scribble? You're in good company, then - it's one of those little add-on features in Sense that doesn't get much press... on account of it not being very useful. Scribble is basically a digital scrapbooking app made to highlight some other features of Sense, like Zoe and some rudimentary stylus support. The app was introduced on the plus-sized HTC One Max, but may be available for other One devices.

Update: We're getting a few reports that this initial build (213.44.1) may be a soak test, despite the fact that our tipster isn't part of the current soak program. If that's the case, it may be a few days to a few weeks before regular users see the OTA update.

"Better late than never" is almost never said with real sincerity, and such is the case with the latest build of Android for the T-Mobile Moto X.

Google Now is constantly gaining new abilities that are generally awesome, if a little bit creepy. One such feature, brought to our attention today, is the ability to keep track of flight prices.

This is another automatic feature whereby Google infers your intention and presents useful info on that basis. In this case, if you are eyeing a flight or itinerary through Google Flights (it does not appear that this works with other travel booking sites right now), Google will make a note of that and drop a helpful card into your Google Now screen to let you know when the price of that flight changes.
