Don’t Touch The Spikes – Another Game Reminiscent of Flappy Bird, But It’s Better

There is yet another game on Google Play that reminds us of Flappy Bird, but this time, it is actually different. Instead of sending a flapping bird through tubes, Don’t Touch The Spikes is rather self explanatory, you must tap the screen to flap your bird’s wings, making sure you don’t send it flying into deadly spikes.  (more…)

Link Bubble Jumps to v1.3, Adds Android Wear Support

Link Bubble, the behind-the-scenes-loading-browser-alternative-chat-heads-like-floater-thingy app created by Chris Lacy, received an update today to version 1.3. The update introduces an article preview mode for displaying pages on Android Wear, adds enhanced notification controls, and improves Android L support, animations, and incognito mode. Lacy also fixed a bunch of bugs.

If you are wondering why Android Wear support was added as a new feature, Chris Lacy discussed the new add-on through a G+ post about this latest update.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 Dark Ages Part 2 Released, 10 New Medieval Levels to Play Through

A new update is available for Plants vs. Zombies 2, which is another Dark Ages update, this time being Part 2 of the series. In the update, players attempt to go through 10 new levels of medieval zombies, battle an evil wizard zombie, evil hungry sheep, and a new King Zombie baddie.

To put you against an even more challenging opponent, a new “Zomboss” is included, which I assume will not be as easily defeated as other undead characters.

Zombie wizards, king zombies, and Zomboss? Sounds intense.  (more…)

Here is Verizon’s LG G Vista and Its Real Specs, Arrives Thursday

This Thursday, Verizon will launch another LG phone, though this one should only be considered as a budget-friendly option. We are talking about the oft-leaked LG G Vista, a massive 5.7-inch phone that is isn’t so massive when it comes to specs. That’s not to say that this won’t be a fully capable phone, it just doesn’t rank up there with the recently released LG G3, a phone we called the best available in our review(more…)

Stanford Researchers Develop New Battery Tech That Could Massively Increase Capacity

While virtually every component that makes up a smartphone has advanced by leaps and bounds over the past few years, power tech has largely stagnated - the G3 may pack a mind-bogglingly high-resolution screen, but its maximum battery capacity represents the limit of viability, at least without sacrificing thinness.

Thankfully, scientists at  Stanford recently achieved what some are calling the “holy grail” of battery design: a stable lithium anode. The anode, if further refined, could lead to cheaper and more efficient battery designs for every electronic that relies on lithium batteries.  (more…)
