Every year at about this time, Google does a cryptic teaser to announce the dates for its I/O developer conference, usually happening in the late spring.

Sonos kills support for legacy devices, potentially nerfing updates for your whole Sonos system (Update: CEO apology)

Sonos recently came under fire when news broke that it's permanently bricking perfectly fine devices as part of its trade-up program. This electronic waste issue might be amplified over the next months as Sonos has announced that it's deprecating software support for some of its older products starting in May.

Indie adventure game Summer Catchers is finally coming to Android, pre-reg now available

It has just come to my attention that FaceIT's stylish indie adventure game Summer Catchers is finally available for pre-registration on the Play Store. Back in July of 2019, the game was published on Steam by Noodlecake Studios and has racked up many positive reviews on the platform over the last six months. The game plays like an auto-runner, though it also offers a story-driven experience, so expect something a lot more polished than the standard auto-runners on the Play Store.
