A couple of weeks ago, Gmail v6.11 began its rollout with a relatively small but divisive change to the way quotes are handled in replies. It turns out that there was a much bigger and more important change that went completely unnoticed. Google just posted a changelog on the Play Store to point out that you can now paste content into Gmail and all of the formatting and images will remain intact.

It's called the GizmoTab, and it's available from both Verizon's online store and as well as its physical stores. It retails for $249.99, but customers can pick one up for $79.99 with a two-year agreement, or $0 down followed by $10.41 per month for 24 months.

Buyers will get an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1200, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, and 3GB of RAM. There's 16GB of built-in storage and a microSD card slot, and GizmoTab's battery is measured in at 5100mAh. The GizmoTab also features an 8MP camera on the back and a 5MP front-facing camera. It's running Android 6.0.1 out of the box.

The tablet features up to 300 premium educational apps, and there's also a "Parent Dashboard" which will allow parents to monitor their kids' usage with the tablet, see progress in some apps, and even choose which apps are available to be used at all. The dashboard will also allow parents to control passwords and accounts.

Verizon is including a special deal for GizmoTab buyers, giving them a free Toys R Us, Barnes & Noble, or The Gap gift card with purchase. Families that buy the GizmoTab and also buy the GizmoGadget or GizmoPal 2 will earn a $100 gift card.

Codemasters ports racing simulator F1 2016 from consoles to Android

Posted: 02 Dec 2016 11:30 AM PST

2016-12-02 19.09.15There are more than a few racing games available on Android, but more technical racing simulators are a bit hard to come by. That's probably because mobile controls and hardware limitations don't appeal to developers (or players) hungry for painstaking accuracy. But today we get a new racing sim, from Codemasters no less - the developer of such franchises as GRID and Dirt, among many others. F1 2016, originally released on the PC and consoles in August, now has a full Android version on the Play Store for $10.

The Google On app gets a UI revamp and becomes Google WiFi in latest update [APK Download]

Posted: 02 Dec 2016 09:55 AM PST

Google released the Google On app last year alongside the OnHub, but the OnHub is yesterday's news. The hot new router in town is Google WiFi. Devices are going to be hitting virtual and physical store shelves in a few days, and the On Hub app is being updated to prepare. It's no longer called "Google On," though. It's Google WiFi now.

The new app (pictured above) is still recognizable, but the interface has been altered considerably.

Minecraft Pocket Edition 1.0 will add an endgame and a dragon, among other goodies

Posted: 02 Dec 2016 09:35 AM PST

enderThough the open-world crafting phenomenon doesn't really have an end, any more than a big box of assorted LEGOs has some final way to assemble it, Minecraft does have an endgame. The original PC release was expanded with a "final" level and boss in 2012, but the Microsoft-branded Windows 10 version and the Pocket Edition on Android haven't had access to it so far. According to Mojang's developer blog, The End is nigh, and it has a gameplay trailer.

Android Auto users were given a pleasant surprise when v6.9 of the Google app enabled the 'OK Google' activation phrase while driving (for many people). We haven't spotted any other visible changes with this release, but there are some interesting things buried in the apk that are also worth checking out. It looks like the search bar's autocomplete is about to gain some new tricks and there's a new (or at least improved) native image viewer in development that appears to have custom support for some of Google's custom search results.

Well, here's one more for you to try and hopefully love... or maybe hate, because let's be realistic, if you still haven't found one that works well for you, it's going to be very difficult to satisfy your taste. But iHeartRadio would sure like to take on that challenge with its two new paid plans.

So far, iHeartRadio has been an online radio provider that streams existing stations and artist radio stations (think Pandora, kind of) and podcasts for free.
