Nickelodeon releases a new app for Android TV, cable login required

Posted: 02 Jul 2016 01:31 PM PDT

image (8)Most of our readership is more likely to sit down and watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones instead of whatever season Spongebob they're up to these days, but we are aware that some of you have children. (There are even a few running around the disparate home offices of Android Police, if you can believe it.) And those tiny customers are the ones served by the latest major media player to hit Android TV, Nickelodeon.

Audible app update adds shareable audio clips, reorganized channels, and bug fixes

Posted: 02 Jul 2016 01:11 PM PDT

clipAmazon's official audiobook outlet is getting a few tweaks after its latest update. The most notable is Clips, a new feature that allows users to easily create and share bite-sized portion of an audiobook narration from within the app. Here, let me show you a Clip from one of the Harry Dresden novels in my Audible library (feel free to critique my taste in the comments).

The interface for making these Clips is a little basic: basically you can choose any 30-second or shorter portion of the audio track, then share an Amazon link via email or text message.

Ahead of its launch, we now have a clear look at the Galaxy Note 7

Posted: 01 Jul 2016 07:51 PM PDT

People are buying larger phones, and that demand is exactly what is driving the success of devices like Samsung's Galaxy Note series. Samsung isn't slowing down, and the company is prepping the latest entrant to the series, the Galaxy Note 7. Rumors have pegged the device for an early August launch, but we're getting a peek at the device before then. Thanks to @evleaks, we have a clear view of the three different color options for the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung is offering choices of Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Blue Coral, all of which look to be surrounded by glass, much like the device's sibling, the Galaxy S6. The use of glass as a primary build material has been controversial, but Samsung has seen strong sales of the Galaxy S6. If that's any indication, most consumers don't find the glass build to be a deal breaker.

Other than a clear look at the device, there's not much new to be gleaned. We can see the traditional home button and fingerprint scanner, and we also have a look at what could be the device's new iris scanner, which adds extra security. Iris scanning has been a popular topic of discussion for years. If Samsung has found a way to enable the technology in a smartphone, it may have a real selling feature, albeit one that may take flak for its gimmicky nature.

Stay tuned for further coverage of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
