Ironhide Game Studio reveals 'Kingdom Rush Vengeance' with a teaser trailer

Ironhide Game Studio is probably best known for its highly lauded Kingdom Rush tower defense game. It was initially released on the web in 2011 as a Flash game, but after it made its way to iOS and subsequently won a ton of awards, it must have been apparent to the devs from that point forward that mobile was the way to go. Since the release of the Kingdom Rush on Android in 2013, we have received two more entries in the series. Kingdom Rush Frontiers in 2013, and Kingdom Rush Origins in 2014. It has been four years since the release of Origins, so we are definitely overdue for a new title in the series.

In short, the PIN-based method for authentication is inherently crackable with a brute force attack, and the PIN mode is required to be enabled by default on routers with WPS support, making using WPS at all a Very Bad Idea.

Google has removed the option to reorder homescreens on Android P's default launchers

It's been years since I've used anything more than two homescreens on my Android devices, let alone tried to reorder any of them in different ways. However, if switching your screens around is something you're used to, prepare yourself for disappointment with Android P. The Pixel Launcher has removed the feature, and seemingly so has Launcher 3.
