Since there's no way Humble Bundle could possibly include all of Kemco's games without breaking just about everything, this bundle starts off with six titles. If you pay at least a dollar, you get Eclipse of Illusion, Eve of the Genesis, and Symphony of the Origin.

Google is giving out invites to Project Fi for 24 hours

Posted: 19 Oct 2015 10:05 AM PDT

To celebrate the release of its two latest Nexus devices, the 5X and 6P, Google is giving away instant invites to its Project Fi wireless service for the next 24 hours. If you've been wanting to see how Google's carrier solution stacks up, now is the perfect time to join.

Project Fi takes a different approach to cellular service, maintaining a simple pricing structure, only charging customers for what they actually use and relying heavily on WiFi for connectivity. Compatibility with Project Fi is slim, with the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X as the only official Project Fi devices. Still, if you own one of those devices, this is a great chance to skip invite lines and start using Project Fi today.

Oppo R7s now official with 5.5-inch display, 13MP camera, 4GB of RAM and more

Posted: 19 Oct 2015 09:03 AM PDT

Oppo has quite a few devices in its library at this point, and now it is adding another with the R7s, which it has just recently made official.

Oppo's R7s has plenty of stand-out features, including a 5.5-inch "arc edge" display, which features a 2.5D "arc edge screen" and 1080p HD resolution. That display is flanked by a bezel that measures in at only 2.2mm, for those that hate bezels. Inside, there's 4GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 quad-core processor, and 32GB of built-in storage. The R7s also supports microSD cards for expandable storage. There's a 13-megapixel camera on the back of the phone, with an 8MP front-facing camera on the other side.

For its part, Oppo says that the new ColorOS 2.1 user interface has some of its own improvements, including apps that open faster (311ms), "252 optimized scenes," and a boot speed that the manufacturer says is 30% faster. The software also includes automatic icon sorting with just a quick shake of the device, and an "efficient memory cleaner." It's running Android 5.1 out of the box.

The device supports 4G and two SIM cards. The battery is measured in at 3070mAh and is non-removable.

Unfortunately, there's no word on when the device will launch, how much it will cost, or where it will be available. But considering that it's official now, it might not be too long of a wait to find out.

What do you think of Oppo's R7s?

Last month HERE showed off its upcoming route sharing feature, which lets users send others the route they're taking to get to a destination. This way you can answer "How are you getting here?" without having to go through the effort of explaining. Tapping the standard share button and having the question-asking-person read the plain text that appears on his or her phone, or open the instructions inside HERE, should be much less of a headache.

The Nexus 5X from LG and Google is launching today in ‘key markets’

Posted: 19 Oct 2015 08:19 AM PDT

It's been a little less than a month since Google unveiled the LG-made Nexus 5X on stage, but for those that have been patiently waiting for the device to launch, the day has finally arrived.

According to an official press release from the Life's Good crew, the Nexus 5X is launching today in select "key markets" across the globe beginning today, October 19. As for which markets the Nexus 5X will be available in, that includes Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, Korea, and India. In Europe, Latin America, and Asia, some markets will begin seeing Nexus 5X availability begin in the "coming weeks."

The Nexus 5X is on sale right now in the Google Store, with the official launch basically just checking off a box at this point. Pricing remains the same, too, with the 16GB Nexus 5X priced at $379 (or £339) and the 32GB variant priced at $429 (or £379). The statement from LG also points out that "major carriers and retailers" will be launching the Nexus 5X at some point in the future, but there are no names or dates provided.

Galaxy S7 To Feature USB Type-C

Posted: 19 Oct 2015 12:02 AM PDT

USB Type C

 

Devices sporting the USB Type-C ports are finally starting to trickle into the market (ie. Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, OnePlus Two) so news that Samsung is planning on using the new port style on their next flagship shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

The news came courtesy of SamMobile who stated that their source has confirmed that the Galaxy S7 will indeed utilize a USB Type-C charge port.  Unlike the OnePlus Two, who's Type-C port did not support quick charging, the Galaxy S7 should still have that wonderful feature enabled despite the new port style.

It seems that 2016 may be the year where we start to see USB Type-C ports more widely available and hopefully by this time next year the reversible cable will start to become the norm for everything!
