[Computer! Hey Wazzzuuupp?] Control Your Phone From Your Windows, Mac, Or Linux With AutoVoice's New Chrome Extension

João Dias, also known as joaomgcd on the Play Store, is one of those developers who are never, ever, content with the current capabilities of modern smartphones. He wants them to be more powerful, respond to more commands, allow more interactions, all from more interfaces. His AutoVoice app has been available for a while, allowing you to harness the OK Google interaction scheme to automate plenty of new actions and issue commands that Google's default algorithms don't yet understand.

Now AutoVoice is getting a lil' sister app, an AutoVoice Chrome extension for your Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. Thanks to it, you can perform the same actions on your phone, but while sitting at your computer (or from another phone too), like taking screenshots, sending messages, hanging up on calls, and more. João has made a demo video to show you the possibilities.

For $899 You Can Now Get A Smart WiFi-Connected iRobot Roomba 980 To Vacuum Clean Your House

You know what's better than a robot that looks like a thick frisbee and slides around your house? It's the one that cleans where it walks without hitting walls and furniture on its way, so that you can come home to less dirty floors as if a magical fairy passed by and did her deed. But what if you can have an even better version? Yes, better, because not only it's a robot, it's also WiFi-connected to an app on your smartphone, so you can control it from afar. That's the new iRobot Roomba 980.

iRobot knows its vacuums. This isn't the first Roomba it releases, so it has been learning from past products, improving and perfecting them.

[Deal Alert] Buy A Brand Spanking New Unlocked AT&T LG G Flex 2 On eBay For $250 ($40 Less Than It Was Last Time)

Pretty good, fairly decent, and not bad are all phrases that can be used to describe the LG G Flex 2. The younger, more curvaceous cousin of the LG G3 has respectable specs and a body curved like a banana that you either think is awesome or pointless and stupid. Speaking of stupid, the price when it launched was an insane $709 on AT$T (that ain't no typo) and apparently everyone agreed that price was obscene because they keep popping up brand new on ebay for a whole lot less.

This time you can pick one up for $250. It's the silver 32GB model with a 13MP camera, a 5.5 inch 1080x1920 display, and a Snapdragon 810 processor (I told you it was a hot deal).

Todoist Gives Its Brand A Visual Refresh, Introduces New App Icon In Latest Update

Todoist gave its Android app a complete material makeover early this summer, providing users with the most changes they've seen in years. But it seems the company left one thing off the list at the time, and today it's rectifying that. The to-do list and note syncing service has come out with a new brand identity, one that does away with its old TD logo.

Quirky Co-op Platformer Chariot Comes To The Google Play Store As Another SHIELD TV Exclusive

NVIDIA must be paying its developer partners really well. That's the only reason I can think of that so many developers of 2D games, which could be played well on just about any modern Android device, keep creating SHIELD-exclusive games. Heck, half of Devolver Digital's current games could run on a bargain bin tablet ripped from a Wallgreens shelf. So I invite you to wonder just how many potential sales Frima Studio (developer of previous wide releases like Nun Attack) is giving up by making Chariot exclusive to the SHIELD TV... and how much NVIDIA incentivizes developers to make up for those sales.

TellTale's Minecraft: Story Mode Adventure Game Lands On The Play Store On October 15th

The idea of making a story-based point-and-click adventure based on Minecraft, which is more or less the definition of open-ended, unscripted gameplay, might seem odd. And it is. But if anyone can pull it off it's TellTale, the studio known for making awesome adventure games based on other people's intellectual property. You can see for yourself in just under a month: Minecraft: Story Mode will hit the Play Store with its first episode on October 15th, just two days after it's available on the PC and consoles. Nice.

Minecraft: Story Mode uses the block-building game's unique voxel graphics and build-it-all setting to tell a science fiction story.

Gameloft's Order & Chaos 2 Is An Open World MMORPG Where You Can Go Anywhere, Do Anything, And Pay Any Amount Of Money With In-App Purchases

Gameloft has been developing mobile games for a long time, and it's kind of got the formula down. The latest release from the developer is Order & Chaos 2: Redemption, which is an open world MMORPG that bears a striking resemblance to World of Warcraft. This isn't WoW, though. It's on Android and contains plenty of in-app purchases. What? That's the formula. I never said you'd like it.

Still Don't Understand Twitch And YouTube Gaming? If Only There Were A Parallel We Could Draw...

Any time we talk about a service that lets you watch other people play games, some folks who still don't seem to understand the appeal behind watching games as opposed to playing them inevitably show up in the comments. There is a reason Amazon acquired Twitch for close to $1bln and Google's recently released YouTube Gaming app has already racked up over 100,000 downloads.

Loading Artist's latest comic (not considering Single Player that was posted outside of the regular schedule) attempts to explain this reason in a way these people may understand:
