This has absolutely nothing to do with Android, but we’re sharing anyway because it’s awesome. As the hip hop fans that we are, it would feel wrong to not let other fans know that the iconic group De La Soul is giving away every single one of their albums for free for the next 25 hours to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their first album, 3 Feet High and Rising. Well, it’s less time than that now, but you do have until noon Eastern tomorrow to grab them all from De La Soul’s website.
All you are required to do is sign-up on their mailing list. They will then send you an email with links to download each album individually. Afterwards, you can unsubscribe if you’d like.

This evening, LG went ahead and unveiled its new tablet-phone hybrid, the G Pro 2. The phone is the follow-up to last year’s G Pro, which was largely thought of as a solid competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note line.

Then again, going from a mega-company like Google to somewhat of a start-up might be the hot new trend for executives. (more…)
Another week, another great icon pack released to Android users. The newest entry in a growing list that we can’t seem to stop switching between is Influx, from Alex Miller. I have actually been testing this pack for a number of weeks and would suggest you all take a look to see if its 630+ hand-crafted icons will meet your needs. Yes, it has long shadows, but it also features rounded edges, a bright-but-not-too-bright color palette, and a set of wallpapers that may justify the price even if you don’t need another icon set.

According to many tweets by various frustrated Android owners, upon attempting to download new apps from Google Play, they are being met with a 403 error.

Since the introduction of Android’s notification bar, the focus has been getting the information you want, when you need it. Up until the release of Android 4.2, the Android lockscreen was unexplored territory as far as getting your notifications and information, but that is quickly changing. Qualcomm Glance, its lockscreen replacement now in open beta, wants to learn from your habits and surroundings to give you information at a glance. (more…)
“Bigger screens and smaller bezels” have been the touted design mantra for most Android devices over the past few years, but how much screen are we actually getting? @somospostpc did a little bit of the number crunching for us and gives us the the percentage of space that the actual display takes up on the front of most of the top Android smartphones.
SanDisk introduced a new product this morning called the Ultra Dual USB Drive (long name, eh?) to help you easily transfer photos or files from tablet or phone to PC and back again. The product sports both micro-USB and USB 2.0 connectors, with the idea being that you could attach the UDUD to your phone or tablet, put a bunch of recently taken pictures on it (or files), and then unplug the drive on your way to a computer for enjoyment on a bigger screen or sharing.
