This message is brought to you by the Anti-Lizard Society who would like to remind all lizards that squashing virtual ants on their smartphones is a much better substitute for real-life violence and would like to donate a number of Android device to the annual Ant Squashing competition.

As yet another step in improving the function of its site on tablets, Google has added a useful feature to the mix in regards to image search results. Now, when you search for an image you'll be greeted with a much more pleasant interface, which includes larger images and the new carousel view.

Once you've searched for an image, simply tap on it to enlarge. Swiping will take you to the next image, which is a really nice way to navigate through all of the pictures.

While World War II may not be the most original setting for a shooter such as this, Gameloft's latest game - Brothers In Arms 2 - is loaded with excellent graphics, multiplayer, and a price of $0. There is a slight catch to it being free, however; in addition to having ads, the game offers the ability to purchase "Medals" to unlock new features and gear more quickly, but this isn't necessary, and everything can be unlocked by gaining experience instead.

If you've always dreamed of brewin' and runnin' your own moonshine, but feared the slight legal implications of such a practice, then Vector Unit's new game Shine Runner holds the ticket to make all of your dreams come true.

Vector Unit is the development team behind the amazing jetski racing game Riptide GP, so we already know that they can knock out some fantastic graphics in aquatic environments, and Shine Runner looks no different.

Apparently, this and Nyan Droid are both part of a new screensaver feature Google called "Android Dreams" that was disabled by them before Ice Cream Sandwich was released (presumably because it wasn't ready for prime time yet). Here is a picture of the re-enabled feature in CM9, courtesy of Steve Kondik who stopped by our G+ post.

We're not sure whether what you're about to see is yet another Easter egg in Ice Cream Sandwich (remember the Nyan Droid?) or the next amazing launcher that will do your dishes and fly you into space, but it turns out the stock ICS launcher actually has another launcher buried inside.

HyperDevBox, the publisher of Spectral Souls, which previously wowed us with both the price sticker ($15) and the size of its creation (1GB) topped its own record today with the release of a new game. Generation Of Chaos, which the company dubbed the first massive strategy RPG for Android, nearly doubles the space requirements - you will need over 1.8GB to complete the installation process. That "massive" part gained a whole second meaning there, didn't it?

The official Race Of Champions game of unbelievable quality that Invictus has been teasing us with since October was just released in the Android Market. First organized in 1988, RoC is a real annual motorsport event "where stars from Formula One, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, sportscars and touring cars compete against each other, going head-to-head in identical cars" (per Wikipedia).

The Android version has stunning graphics and the level of detail you would regularly expect from a console game.

Any time a new game shows up in NVIDIA's TegraZone, we immediately hop on to take a look - after all, only the best of the best games with gorgeous graphics make it that far.

The newest addition to TegraZone this time around is Meltdown On Mars THD - it's what I would call a mix of tower defense and Gun Bros, executed in a way kind of similar to Dungeon Defenders.

It seems like Asus' Transformer Prime has been constantly making headlines since before it was announced. Giving those looking forward to the tablet/netbook hybrid another bit of news to drool over, the first hands-on video of the Prime has surfaced on YouTube.

It's worth noting that the tablet featured in this video is pre-production – it's running Android 3.2.1., and using hardware that may not be finalized for production or sale.

So you're doing a mockup in Photoshop, and you want to see it on your device. You've got to save it, email it to yourself, and open it on your phone, right? Not Anymore. Today, Google - well, Roman Nurik, a guy who works at Google - released "Android Design Preview," a little utility that will mirror your screen over ADB.

The app has a box that matches the resolution of your device, just start it up, stick it the alignment box over your Photoshop mockup, and you have a live preview of your work.
