It is not quite May 4, known as Star Wars Day, but that has not stopped Google or Amazon from using the force to bring app prices down. For a limited time, at least until we pass May 4, you can grab deals through either outlet on Star Wars-related goodies such as apps, games, books, and more. (more…)

I really wish Ron was around to write this piece, since apparently he plays this game like a madman. Regardless, an update is now live on Google Play for Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, a game that reminds me a bit of SimTower, only because I was raised playing computer games on Windows 95.
In the update, players now have access to over 100 new missions thanks to the addition of the Imperial Assignments System. With this, the Emperor wants more work to be completed on the galaxy’s most superior weapon, so you best get to it! (more…)

If that poster above isn’t enough to get you worked up, then at least give the clip below a shot. (more…)
As Android fanboys, we love a good t-shirt design that includes anything related to our favorite mobile OS while taking pot shots at the competition. Today’s TeeFury shirt (that is available today only), is a great example of all of that.
