47 temporarily free and 63 on-sale apps and games for Monday

Welcome to Monday, everyone. Last week it started to look like sales were starting to slow down, but looking at today's list, it would appear that many developers are still putting up quality sales to help everyone alleviate their boredom as they self-quarantine. This is why I'm excited to announce that Beamdog's Baldur's Gate sequel Siege of Dragonspear is available today for half-off. On top of this, you can pick up Bridge Constructor and Heroes of Loot 2 while they're on sale, two quality games that can easily eat up many hours of the day. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Dozens of security flaws are discovered in components of Android each month, which is why Google releases monthly security patches.

Why I left Pixels behind and found a new home with Samsung

For several years I was a hardcore Google fan, turning my nose up at anything other than Nexus or Pixel devices. Last year, I traded in my Pixel 3XL for a Galaxy S10+, and I could not be happier.

Now that I've made the jump and had time to reflect on it, I'd like to discuss what is keeping me with Samsung for the foreseeable future, as well as what I miss from the pure experience Pixels have to offer.
