The Droid Life Show Episode 53 Just Upset Duke to Take You Into the Weekend

If you missed episode 53 of the Droid Life Show this week, shame on you. You missed the first show with five DL team members, plus our focus was on Android Wear and the gorgeous Moto 360. In fact, a solid 45 minutes was dedicated to Google’s new Android wearables platform. We not only covered the 360, but the LG G Watch, our thoughts on the UI, and if we really think this could be the wearable breakthrough we needed to finally buy into the category.  (more…)

Reminder: Motorola is Talking Moto 360 Design in a Live Hangout Today

Shortly after Motorola announced its new Moto 360 smartwatch, the (for now) Google-owned company told us to mark our calendars for a Google+ Hangout with the watch’s lead designer, Jim Wicks. Wicks plans to talk only design and style features, most of which we know from yesterday’s promo video and a couple of interviews that have spread around this morning. In other words, this won’t be about price, specs, or software features – you know, the important stuff.

The Hangout should be live any minute, though they seem to be having issue getting it up and live. Here is the event page.

We’ll update this post, hopefully with an embedded stream as soon as we have it. In the mean time, re-watch yesterday’s introduction video and drool.  (more…)

Video: See Android Wear in Action on a Watch That Doesn’t Look Like It’s From the Future

In the press release for Google’s new wearables platform, called Android Wear, they talked about a developer preview that can be downloaded by developers who want to get their apps ready for live action on wrists. They also released a video for the developer preview, which just so happens to show a watch in action (or at least a video rendering of how it could work).

You get a full preview of the UI, how the card-style information is presented, navigated through, what happens when you say “OK, Google” to perform an action, and how quickly you can reply using your voice to something like a Hangouts message.  (more…)

Rovio Working on an RPG Called Angry Birds Epic, Here’s the Trailer

A week or so ago, Rovio began teasing and soft releasing a new Angry Birds title, named Angry Birds Epic. The game is already available for those of you who live in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, but for the rest of us, we are still waiting to see what exactly to expect from AB: Epic.

From what we see in the trailer for the game that was released today, it’s a role-playing game, one which will take your forces of either birds or piggies, and then pit them against one another in a fictional world where these things are plausible.  (more…)

Godzilla “Smash3″ Stomping Its Way to Android This May

Unless you live under a rock or simply don’t care, a new Godzilla movie is on the horizon. Scheduled for theatrical release this May, it appears as if a new movie isn’t the only thing fans of the fire-breathing monster can look forward to.

Teased this morning, development team Rogue Play announced that the Godzilla Smash3 game will make an iOS and Android debut around the same time as the movie.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show Episode 52 Will Help With Your St. Patrick’s Day Prep Work

On Wednesday night, the crew united as they always do (sans Tato), to bring the world Episode 52 of The Droid Life Show. In this episode, the topics covered include all of the crazy leaks we have seen surrounding the HTC One (2014), the rumors and specs posted for the LG-made Nexus smartwatch from Google, AT&T’s lighting up of LTE-A here in the US, and the possibility of Google bringing its own set-top box to the living room.

It was quite the eventful show indeed.  (more…)

“All New HTC One” for T-Mobile Makes a New Video Appearance, Compared to One Max Too

Samsung managed to keep the Galaxy S5 out of public view until the press got a hold of the 2014 flagship and mistakenly outed it less than 24 hours before its official unveiling. HTC on the other hand, still hasn’t officially announced the “All New HTC One” (One 2014), yet we have seen the device in a 12-minute video and more images than we even know what to do with at this point. HTC sucks at controlling leaks.

In today’s set of leaks, we not only get a new video of the phone in action, but also in a series of photos that shows off its exterior trimmings and how it compares in size to the HTC One Max.  (more…)
