There is a new place to grab bundle deals on Android games this morning, that being StackSocial, a website dedicated to finding and hosting the best deals on the web. This morning, the website announced a new promotion for Android game lovers, offering seven titles on a “name your own price” platform, while also offering to donate a portion of the proceeds to certain charities.
As for the games offered in the bundle, if you pay more than the average price, currently sitting at $4.20, you can score Zombie Gunship, Incredipede, Bad Hotel, Waking Mars, Rebuild, Syder Arcade HD, and Savant – Ascent. If you purchased these games individually through Google Play, you would be looking at about $16 worth of titles. (more…)
Android Wear devices may have stolen the spotlight for now, but that does not mean Google Glass, the search giant’s other platform based around glance-able information, is not inching closer towards a palatable price and retail launch. Evidence of progress comes in the form of recently made changes to the Google Glass Terms of Service (TOS), which Glass Almanac astutely observed and highlighted. (more…)
Google News and Weather, remember that app? No? Don’t get down on yourself if you know nothing of this app, a news and weather distributor that was a part of the stock Android experience, yet hasn’t seen an update in years. Today, though, it has risen from the dead with a massive update from Google.
The update turns News and Weather into a modern app, with slideout navigation and a fair amount of Material Design stylings. (more…)
Not to be outdone by Motorola and LG, Asus is continuing to tease its first foray into the wearable market. Ahead of its September 3 unveiling at IFA in Berlin, Asus on Facebook this morning posted two images of its prototypical smartwatch, a sort of rectangular device with rounded edges and what looks to be an interchangeable wristband.

T-Mobile’s free data program has long been the carrier’s most attractive tablet offering, but the company apparently wants to convert a few of those freeloaders to postpaid subscribers. To incentivize the switch, T-Mobile is expanding its Simple Choice offerings with tablet additions that match your smartphone data limit. (more…)
On September 4, Motorola is going to show off not only a new Moto X, but a new Moto G as well. Don’t believe us? Go back and look at their press invite again, which clearly shows a phone with the letter “G” centered on its display.
Thanks to the folks over at HelloMotoHK, we may have one of our first looks (pictured above) at the new mid-range device. According to their images and information, the new Moto G will support dual-SIM (international variant) and microSD cards, along with swappable back covers, just like the original. We could also get an upgraded 5-inch HD display, 8MP rear camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and the dual-front speakers that were first introduced on the Moto E. (more…)
This morning, Verizon announced that it is almost ready to finally unleash VoLTE (voice-over-LTE) and HD Voice upon its customers. In fact, customers should expect to begin using VoLTE and HD Voice “in the coming weeks,” as opposed to months. Verizon didn’t mention as much in their press release, but this almost seems early. Back in May, they announced that both services would be here in the “next few months” or “later this year,” leaving us to wonder if that meant end of summer or early winter. Clearly, they meant summer. (more…)
