The ninth edition of the Humble Mobile Bundle launched just over one week ago. It included at the time Syberia, Neuroshima Hex, Bardbarian: Golden Axe Edition, Leo’s Fortune, Out there, and First Strike. The final three mentioned were given only to donors exceeding the average. Now, two additional games are up for those donors. For exceeding the current (and rapidly changing) $3.38 donation amount, you get So Long, Oregon! and Mountain.
This is definitely one of the best Humble Mobile Bundle’s ever launched. The games, especially Leo’s Fortune, are of very high quality. So if you are feeling extra charitable today, go right ahead and get giving!

If I have a nickel for everytime somebody complained that the Chromecast doesn’t have 5 GHz support. Well a new version of the Chromecast (model A4RH2G2-2A) has passed through the FCC, and it appears to support the 5 GHz band.
It’s not clear if there is anything else that will be upgraded. Hopefully support for DD 5.1 and DTS.
Sprint is busy pushing out a relatively minor over-the-air stability update to all its carrier-branded variants of HTC’s former flagship smartphone, the One (M7).

When Beats Music finally launched their own streaming music service, playing off the name recognition of their line of headphones, AT&T managed to strike a special deal for their customers. AT&T subscribers were able to get the Beats Music service for a 90-day free trial, much longer than the standard 2-week trial period. In addition, AT&T subscribers could buy a Beats Music subscription for $14.99 per month, $5 more than the normal price, but could share their subscription with other users and devices. This special package is no longer available to AT&T customers although they can still order the standard $9.99 per month Beats Music service.
When Google announced Android 5.0 Lollipop yesterday, one of the points that they tried to really drive home was the fact that Android is an open architecture and system. That statement is a bit of a contrast with developments over the past year that have shown Google seemingly exerting more control over Android and how it is deployed rather than really opening things up. Google vice president of engineering, Hiroshi Lockheimer, indicates in a new interview that we should see Google back off moving forward and that the company had a good reason for the approach they took this past year.

Google Chrome revolutionized translation tools in web browsers when it first launched, and they’re improving it today with their new Translate extension.

The extension is available in the Chrome Web Store, and is free for use.

Another day closer to the announcement of the N3 and we have another leaked photo. This time, we’re looking at the entire backplate of the device and it reveals one very important thing. The N3 will sport a fingerprint scanner. Besides that we see the new camera in all its glory. From what we know the device will feature various materials including an aerospace alloy (lithium alloy) and steel. We’re less than two weeks away from the big unveil.
