Games that are quick and to the point are perfect for mobile devices, since they are easy to pick up and then put down. The newest game to catch my attention is Don’t Tap the White Tile, a game which tests your hand-eye coordination to the max. (more…)
Google Hangouts on Android received a major update today to version 2.1.075. The update introduces a merged conversation list that combines SMS and Hangouts from the same recipient. Through that conversation, you can tell Hangouts how you’d like to send new messages to that person via switch. You can also tell the difference between messages that are sent via SMS or as a standard Hangouts message.
The update also includes a simplified contact list with two main sections for phone contacts and people you Hangout with. Google even included a Hangouts widget for your home screen and improved performance throughout things like video calls.
The full changelog is below, along with an .apk download link. (more…)

Back in February, Google announced that it would entertain the idea of bringing its ultra-high speed Fiber internet to nine new markets. This morning, AT&T tried to crush that number by announcing that it would look at up to 100 new markets for its “ultra-fast” Fiber network, 21 of which are major metropolitan areas.
Like Google, AT&T isn’t saying that all of these cities and municipalities are guaranteed to get Fiber, but that they will work with local leaders to discuss ways to bring the service to their communities. In other words, there really is no sure thing here, it’s completely up to the local markets to get the ball rolling. (more…)
Over the weekend, many of you took advantage of AT&T’s “certified like-new” Galaxy Note 3 sale, which had the device listed for $249 without a contract. That’s completely insane, in terms of deals. We initially thought that the price was wrong, but it held up all weekend and is still there, though the device in either black or white is unsurprisingly sold out. If you missed out, don’t worry, there is another deal going on that’s just as good for the Galaxy S4. (more…)
Remember how on launch day of the Galaxy S5, we realized (to no one’s surprise) that Verizon had completely disabled one of the phone’s better features, Paypal fingerprint support? Well, some things appear to have happened behind the scenes with the apps required to make this work, so you can now at least register your fingerprint to login to the payment app. It takes the sideloading of the Samsung Apps store, since Verizon doesn’t preload it, along with the a couple of app installs from there.
I should point out that this method enables Fingerprint logins for the Paypal app, but that could be it. I have not been able to test whether or not you can actually verify payments too.
Ready to do this? (more…)
