[Free Alert] Ariana Grande and The Beach Boys albums are gratis on Google Play Music (probably US-only)

Google Play Music used to offer free albums every few weeks. It looked like a win-win for everyone: people could get some free tunes, and Play Music would attract people who might not have used the service otherwise.

But now, albums from Ariana Grande and The Beach Boys are just $0 from Play Music.

Bethesda lawsuit says Westworld game stole Fallout Shelter code, even has the same bugs

Westworld Mobile landed on Android a mere two days ago, and at the time pretty much everyone remarked that the game was very similar to Fallout Shelter. Turns out, it might have a bit too much in common with that game, as Bethesda is suing Warner Bros. and Behavior Interactive, the developers contracted to make Fallout Shelter for Bethesda. Apparently, WB hired Behavior to make Westworld, and Bethesda alleges some of the IP used in the recent game's creation stems from previous work on Fallout Shelter. It even has some pretty damning evidence.
