Humble Bundle, the easiest way to score good games on Android while also helping a charity in need, has a new pack of titles available for purchase. The way it works is easy – simply pay whatever price you want, determine how you want the money divided (a lot to charity or a bit more to developers), then download your DRM-free titles.
However, to access extra titles, you will need to pay over the average price of just $3.95. Considering that if you purchase these games separately you would be paying up to $30, this is a pretty good deal. (more…)
A recent teardown of the Galaxy S5 has revealed that the bill of materials for the device is about $256, while Samsung is currently selling the device off contract for about $660. That’s not a bad little markup.
IHS teardown specialist, Andrew Rassweiler had a few interesting things to say about the Galaxy S5, mainly concerning Samsung’s rehash of devices we have already seen internally.

Today is the big day for Android and Google enthusiasts alike – Google I/O registration opens! I/O is Google’s annual developers conference, where the world gets a peak at what Google has planned for its services over the next year.

In the past, users would rush to the I/O website hoping to snag a pair (with most people leaving frustrated), but this year is much different. The I/O registration window will be open today (April 15) to Friday (April 18). This gives people three days to sign up, which means no rushing and hopefully no site crashes. (more…)
We have heard from Kellen as to why he is already missing the One (M8)’s camera thanks to a few of its features, but the Galaxy S5 shooter is nothing to mess around with. While HTC did a great job at marketing the One’s somewhat gimmicky features, the camera leaves a whole lot to be desired, especially in regards to editing photos after the fact, as well as overall picture quality.
As stated in the previous 5 Reasons post, the One’s UltraPixel sensor does do a fine job at creating photos that are share worthy on Instagram and Twitter, but for anyone looking to get more out of their photos, 4 megapixels probably won’t cut it.
After our time with the Galaxy S5, we have compiled another five reasons which make the shooter on Samsung’s newest flagship device better than the one found on the HTC One (M8).
