Angry Birds 2, the long awaited sequel to the original Angry Birds, is now available on Google Play for all to experience. Rovio made folks wait a few solid years for this release, and if the Google Play and iTunes ratings are any indicator, it appears the publisher did a solid job.
Much like the original and all of the following variants, your main goal is to destroy structures made by piggies. At the beginning of each level, you were given a lineup up different birds to use, but now, it appears you must earn different “cards” of birds to use their various powers to destroy the homes of pigs. These cards can be used in any order you see fit, making the game more of a strategy title than just a plain slingshot game. (more…)
Now that the OnePlus 2 is official and arriving August 11 (be sure to see our hardware tour), the company is giving its biggest fans chances to win free phones. Through a contest of sorts under hashtag #WWYDFT2 (“What would you do for the 2?”), OnePlus is asking fans to complete any of 10 different tasks, film and submit the tasks being completed via the source link below, and then hope that enough people vote for them. If their submissions receive enough votes, they could win one of 22 handsets that are being given away. (more…)
An updated version of the official Moto app from Motorola is available to download on Google Play, bringing a feature perfect for those who attend the movies every once in a while.
With the update, Moto 3.0 adjusts to both places and activities. For example, if you head to the movie theaters, you can set that location for the device to recognize, and it will automatically silence itself for the duration of your stay. (more…)
Sprint is still doing whatever it can to try and compete in the US wireless industry, which really just means that they are continuing to drop the prices on their plans in hopes of convincing you to switch to their network. This morning, the Beckham-friendly carrier announced a new family plan that includes 10GB of shared data for 4 lines at just $100 per month. If that’s not enough data, they are also making a 40GB plan available at $120 per month. (more…)
According to Twitter leaker @OnLeaks, the below image is of the backside cover from the upcoming Nexus device produced by LG, codenamed Bullhead. As a brief backstory, there are two Nexus devices rumored to launched later this year; one from LG (Bullhead), and the other from Huawei (Angler). Besides a few reports here and there, there has been little to no tangible information regarding the LG-made Nexus device to seen, but this could be our first visual of the device’s back cover.

The OnePlus 2 doesn’t have NFC, did you know that? Of course you did, because it’s all anyone can say in the comments when telling others why they aren’t buying one. OnePlus supposedly thinks that no one uses NFC, even though we are finally at a time where Apple has given in and begun using the tech to try and make mobile payments a major deal. OnePlus…they don’t care. Why include the tech when no one uses it?
(Because it probably costs pennies to include a damn NFC chip, that’s why. Add a freakin’ dollar to the price of your “flagship killer.” We’ll all pay to have a phone that isn’t crippled in the NFC department.)
Anyways, we are with most of you in that it seems quite ridiculous that OnePlus made an NFC decision for us based on who knows what kind of evidence of use. All I know, is that I like to make a mobile payment or two here or there and am disappointed that this phone, which should be incredible, won’t ever be able to.
So now we want to see votes. Would you buy a phone (could be any phone, not just the OnePlus 2) if it lacked NFC? What if the new Moto X or Galaxy Note 5 didn’t have NFC, would you still consider them?
With so much excitement yesterday morning, we missed this gem recently announced for Google Search users. Now appearing in search results when you place an inquiry for a business, you will be shown Popular Times for said business, hopefully leading you to not wasting time in long lines or crowds. (more…)
For who knows how long, you can save $15 when you buy two Chromecast dongles over on the Google Store. Regularly priced at $35 a piece, bringing the price of two to $70, this deal means you only need to pay $55 for the pair.
