[Deal Alert] SanDisk 400GB microSD card down to all-time low of $180 on Amazon ($70 off)

I remember fondly the days of obsessively watching for the best deals on the greatest microSD cards for my phone. I usually used the expandable storage to store custom ROM stuff, like GApps, SuperSU, nandroid backups, and so on. That fervor has long since died down, but if the same fire that burned in me is still going strong in you (or you just want a ton of mobile storage), then listen up. Amazon has SanDisk's 400GB microSD card for $179.99, an all-time low. $70 off a card more massive than I could have imagined in the olden days is a deal worth noting.

Xiaomi reportedly wants to buy GoPro

Xiaomi is probably recognizable among our readers for its phones, and maybe even for its earbud headphones. But I doubt many of us think of cameras when we think of the 5th largest smartphone manufacturer. That said, someday we might. According to Bloomberg, Xiaomi is considering making an offer on GoPro.

Your phone's Android security patches may not be as up to date as you think

You consider yourself a responsible smartphone user. You go out of your way to keep your data safe, protecting your handset with a strong passcode, paying close attention to the permissions you grant apps, and making sure that your phone is always running the latest security updates available to it. At least, you think your phone is patched against the most recent security exploits, but is it really? A new report suggests that's likely not the case, claiming that many phones are missing at least one, and sometimes ten or more security patches.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ already came out earlier this year, but if you're not overly enticed by Samsung's new flagships or prefer to save a few hundred dollars and get something that's slightly less cutting-edge, you might consider purchasing last year's Galaxy S8 or S8+.

Cool, but scary: New Google AI tech can isolate a single voice in a crowd

It's hard enough for us to keep track of who's talking in a loud or crowded party, imagine how difficult it is for automated systems to follow. Speech recognition at a reasonable quality is really only something that's been mastered in the last decade or two, add in conflicting sounds as people talk over each other, and an already tricky problem becomes much harder.

Fortunately (or unfortunately) for us, researchers at Google have been working on isolating sources of audio like speech in videos, and the results they showed off yesterday are kind incredible and simultaneously terrifying.

Kalypso Media's skyscraper construction sim 'Project Highrise' is out on Android

People have been clamoring for ages for a proper SimTower successor. It would seem that skyscraper construction simulators are a very niche genre. Sure, we have a few mobile releases from Kairosoft and NimbleBit that may scratch that itch, but it's not like they can really compete on the same level. This is why so many fans of the genre were ecstatic when Kalypso Media's Project Highrise hit the scene. It was received very well when it originally released on PC back in 2016, and to my delight, it has been ported to Android and is officially available on the Google Play Store for $3.99.
