The Uncertain, published for SHIELD Android TV owners, is available on Google Play priced at $14.99. In this game, which has quite the story to it, you play as an Engineering Robot who seems quite curious about the human race that has been extinct for quite some time.

As other carriers have introduced new (mostly shady) unlimited data plan options, Verizon continues to field questions about whether or not it will do the same. The continued questioning is fair, since this is the company who claimed in 2015 they were a “leader” and not a follower when asked about joining the rest of the industry in rollover data features, only to do just that, join them a year later.
So what did soon-to-be-retired CFO Fran “ShamWow” Shammo have to say when asked about unlimited data plans on Verizon, this morning at an investors conference? Only that “at the end of the day, people don’t need unlimited plans.” You hear that, people, you don’t need unlimited data. (more…)

Google Play and Android apps moved a step closer to a broader release to more devices today, thanks to a graduation of the Google Play beta experience to Chrome OS stable. Wait, did that make sense?
