Samsung has just made a couple of changes to its Android security updates page, and they're not too pretty. Three devices --- the 2016 versions of the Galaxy A3, J1, and J3 --- have been dropped from security updates altogether, and out of the four new additions, three have been filed under the list for quarterly security updates.

Android Police's bi-weekly roundups have covered more than 750 games this year. That's a hell of a lot for a site that's not specifically about gaming, and picking out the top five is no small task.

Android has been around for eight years now. It's the most-used operating system on the planet, and it's helped spearhead a revolution in mobile access and capability. That being the case, it shouldn't surprise anyone if the truly mind-blowing new apps aren't exactly thick on the ground anymore. This year's crop of apps aren't especially amazing, but each one exhibits new functionality for users that wasn't accessible (or at least practical) before.

It's new year's day! (Well, at least in most of the world, I know some of you have already flipped the calendar to the 2nd).

The Honda Civic is one of the most popular economy cars on the planet, thanks in no small part to Honda's continual updates over the last forty years. The 2016 model year, which incidentally includes a complete redesign for its tenth generation, will be the first model to support Google's Android Auto digital platform. It's the second car model in Honda's lineup to do so, after the larger 2016 Accord, and it also supports Apple's CarPlay standard.
According to a press release by Honda, the new models will appear in North America this fall after rolling off of the manufacturing lines in Indiana and Ontario. Read More
If you haven't heard of David Maisel, allow me to fill you in: he's been an executive producer (read: important decision-making guy with broad yet vague duties in getting a movie together) for virtually every one of the Marvel Phase One movies including both Iron Man flicks, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America. I tell you this so you'll have at least a little bit of hope to cling to when I tell you that he's been signed on to produce the Angry Birds movie, alongside Despicable Me producer John Cohen.
The movie is scheduled to be released by 2016, which is about four years out. Read More
