It looks like we will be getting a recording option very soon within the Chrome Remote Desktop for PCs and laptops. François Beaufort took to Google+ to announce that the Chromium team is adding it “as we speak.”
This could be very useful for those that want to create how to videos for friends and family, or even broadcasting to the world through YouTube.
How long till the update actually hits is anyone’s guess, but I can’t imagine it will be too long.

Another day, another Galaxy S flagship variant. Samsung has announced a new Galaxy S 5 this morning for Singapore. The Galaxy S 5+ will be available starting Saturday. Aug. 23 and will support SingTel’s brand spankin’ new LTE-A network launching that very same day.
The Sony Xperia Z3 has been certified in China by TENAA, which is similar to the FCC here in the U.S. This in itself isn’t anything major, but the fact that the specs are confirmed is.
This beast is going to have a 5.2-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AC), an Adreno 330 GPU, 20.7 MP rear camera, and a 2.2 MP front-facing camera.
IFA 2014 is basically Comic-Con for smartphone nerds, complete with cryptic teasers and flagship cosplay. Okay, I made that last part up, but the cryptic teasers are the real deal, and Huawai have released one that has the whole internet guessing what they could possibly have up their sleeve.
A while back we reported that LG was planning on bringing the UX from their flagship G3 to upcoming low to mid-range models. Now it appears that their plans will come to fruition as they’ve announced two new budget-friendly devices: the LG L Fino and L Bello. If the interface wasn’t enough, both models also stay true to LG’s “Floating Arc” design language, complete with rear-mounted buttons, which makes for some premium-looking handsets.
Finally, .GEARS Studio’s latest endeavour has been released onto the Google Play store. Swing Copters is basically vertical Flappy Bird with moving obstacles, so if you weren’t much of a fan of its cousin, you probably won’t be too jazzed about this new release. Nevertheless, if you want, scoot on over the the Play Store and pick it up! As usual, hit the break for screenshots and download links.

It’s no secret that Motorola are refreshing their flagship Moto X and mid-range Moto G models by the end of the year. We’ve also been led to believe that they will be manufacturing the Nexus 6 (codenamed Shamu). If that wasn’t enough, rumors have emerged indicating up to five more new phones from the Lenovo-owned manufacturer, including a Star Wars-themed Droid.
The Fire phone has been having some issues lately on the market and has not been selling nearly as well as Amazon has wanted. The lack of adoption by consumers seems to be the result of the exclusive deal between Amazon and AT&T. While AT&T may be a large company, they don’t have all of the market, so all Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile customers are stuck with another device, whether they want a Fire Phone or not.
