Minecraft: Gear VR Edition Now Available For Samsung S6, S7, And Note 5 Series Phones

Minecraft isn't the first game you think about when you hear the word "immersion." No, it's the first one you think of when you hear "surprisingly popular," or "construction-based," or "Notch made more money than Solomon's divorce lawyer." But even so, it's been tied to the new virtual reality trend more than once, most notably thanks to new owner Microsoft's HoloLens platform. That said, a little platform competition isn't going to keep them from making ungodly amounts of money, so check out Minecraft for Samsung's Gear VR headsets.

Android Wear: My Love & Hate (Video)

I’ve been a loyal Wearer (is that the right term?) since the launch of the 2014 Moto 360. I bought one as soon as I could, and I wore it every day.

Philips Launches SpeechAir, A New Android-Powered Digital Voice Recorder

Like most journalists, I own a voice recorder for recording interviews. Mine is pretty basic. I think it cost me around $30 on Amazon. But for the most part, I've been satisfied with it. I've never felt the need to upgrade to something a bit more powerful. But this new Android-powered voice recorder from Philips is making me question that.
