Facebook's Android app can now save offline videos

Posted: 17 Jul 2016 03:19 PM PDT

samarthApproximately 98% of the videos posted on Facebook are ripped YouTube clips with annoying, aspect ratio-destroying text on the top and bottom, stolen and reposted by some radio station in Ohio that's desperate for social media "engagement." Even so, if you really want to save those videos, the Android app now lets you do so. Kinda. One of our readers spotted the new user interface features and the "Saved" video section in the app, but that word doesn't mean the same thing to Facebook as it does to other folks.

Samsung now creating microSD/UFS hybrid slots, likely to appear in the Note 7

Posted: 17 Jul 2016 02:38 PM PDT

Samsung recently announced its newest line of UFS 1.0 memory cards. They are the size of traditional microSD cards but are ridiculously faster, utilizing the same storage technology that is used in the Galaxy S7 internal memory.

Unfortunately, there is no launch date for these UFS cards, nor is there a single device that can actually use it. Yes, the pinout is significantly different compared to microSD cards, so microSD slots won't read UFS cards. Fortunately, Samsung is working on it.

The new UFS cards are not compatible with the current microSD card socket. However, we have developed a socket design that can support both UFS cards and microSD cards. We are working with different partners in the industry on this integration for next-generation devices.

Samsung is making sockets that will read both microSD and the new UFS cards, which is expected but it's nice to have it confirmed. Our source also says that the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 will feature UFS card support, so it's likely this hybrid slot will show up in the device.

The Note 7 will be the ideal situation for Samsung. The company will have ridiculously fast industry leading removable memory and a flagship that will have support for it. Installing apps, recording 4K video, and more will be faster and easier with such external memory, enhanced by the rumored inclusion of adoptive storage.

We're excited to see the future of removable storage, especially with how fast it's getting. Now if only we could see some pricing.

Pirate strategy game Age of Booty: Tactics finally lands on the shores of the Play Store

Posted: 17 Jul 2016 02:19 PM PDT

image (4)The original Age of Booty was a real-time strategy game released on the Xbox Live Arcade and similar download services. It combined a streamlined, console-focused take on strategy with a cartoony pirate nautical theme - there was many an "avast" and "aaargh" to be heard. Developer Certain Affinity gained some decent acclaim from the title, and so released a mobile free-to-play version of the game called Call of Booty: Tactics. It came out for Android this weekend, which is almost exactly two years after the iOS version.

Come on down, Canada: you're the latest country to get Pokémon GO

Posted: 17 Jul 2016 01:49 PM PDT

oh canadaDid you know that lacrosse is the official summer sport of Canada? Well it is. (I'll give you one guess for the winter sport.) But something tells me that Canada's population of idle kids, teenagers, and twenty-somethings won't be playing much this week, since Pokémon GO was just released in the Great White North. Players on Android and iOS can now download the game directly from the Play Store and App Store, respectively.
