This week, Deonn Games released Asteroid Defense 2, which is a paid version with more enemies, explosions, guns, aliens, shrink rays, black holes, better graphics, and more game modes.

CrashPlan Comes To Android, Allows You To Retrieve Your Backed Up Files On The Go

CrashPlan is an amazing service that I've been using for a number of years to back up not only my desktops and laptops, but also all the Linux servers. I can't recommend it enough due to the fact that it's cross-platform (Java), can be headless (client/server architecture), has no storage limitations, can use various configurable destinations (cross-backup across my devices), multiple schedules and backup sets, practically unlimited file versioning, etc, etc - it is literally the best offering on the market that I've tried so far.

ITAgents, Creator Of Theft Aware, Bought Out By Avast - Updated Android App Coming Soon

If you've never heard of Theft Aware, then you're missing out on one of the best anti-loss/theft solutions available for Android. It embeds itself deep into root, hides itself from the app tray, utilizes device administration privileges to the fullest, and basically makes itself undetectable, unremovable, indestructible, and unstoppable. Like I said, it's probably the most solid security app that we've ever seen.

In a blog post today, the makers of Theft Aware, ITAgents, announced that it has been been purchased by popular antivirus software company Avast.
