  • We’re celebrating Nova Launcher’s 6th birthday with a contest!

    Happy Birthday to Nova!

    Six years ago, Nova Launcher was released, and today it’s one of the best damn launchers around. In a vast and increasingly competitive launcher market, Nova Launcher has grown as a launcher and as a brand. This year in particular the team behind Nova Launcher has a whole lot to celebrate: they’ve hit 50 million downloads, they made a deal with Razer to be the launcher that ships on the Razer Phone, and their launcher has a better implementation of Android Oreo’s features than almost any other launcher, including Google’s Pixel Launcher.

    Nova Launcher has much to celebrate, and so it decided to get 50 lucky readers a present: a Google Play promo code for Nova Launcher Prime.

    Nova Launcher’s free features are stellar, but you gain a few more perks as a Prime member, chief among them being home screen gestures. Gestures are a wonderful bit of Android magic, allowing you to hide shortcuts to your favorite apps and actions in easy-to-use gestures, such a doub…

  • Samsung smart speaker with Bixby to launch in first half of 2018

    The speaker will cost around $200 and play nicely with all of Samsung’s other devices.

    Samsung confirmed back in August that it was working on its own smart speaker to take on the likes of Amazon Echo and Google Home, but since that initial confirmation, we haven’t heard much of anything else. However, as we near the end of 2017, new details have finally emerged to give us a better idea of what to expect from it.

    Bloomberg recently spoke with individuals that are familiar with the development of Samsung’s smart speaker, and perhaps the biggest news to come out of this is the fact that Samsung is aiming to launch the speaker within the first half of 2018 with a price tag of around $200.

    Samsung’s speaker could be $70 more than the Google Home.

    To put this in comparison with the rest of the smart speaker market, the Google Home regularly costs $129, Amazon’s Echo and Echo Plus cost $99 and $164, respectively, and Apple’s upcoming HomePod will be launching with a price tag of $3…

  • Start with the $50 SmartThings hub and expand your smart home

    All things SmartThings are on sale right now.

    The Samsung SmartThings Hub is down to $49.98 on Amazon. This is part of a greater sale on SmartThings devices, which includes the motion sensor and the water leak sensor.

    There’s even the full SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit for sale at $150. It normally sells above $200. It comes with a Hub and several other accessories, so you can just skip right to this bundle if you want to go all in.

    Hubs like this act as the “brain” of any smart home. As you start adding more smart features, like a motion sensor or smart plugs, you want to be able to control all of them at once. The hub lets you connect everything to it and then control them from one single place. The $150 home monitoring kit, for example, can use that hub to connect all of your appliances, monitor your home and notify you when anything unexpected happens. The SmartThings Hub works with Wi-Fi networks and wireless protocols like ZigBee and Z-Wave. It has a Bluetooth radio but ap…

  • The $2 Blood, Sweat, and Pixels eBook explores the turbulent world of making video games

    You think beating that final boss was hard? Try designing him in the first place.

    Amazon has discounted dozens of Kindle books during a huge one-day sale, including some great reads like Blood, Sweat, and Pixels for $1.99. That’s a price that won’t be here tomorrow.

    You don’t need an Amazon device to read a Kindle book. Read it anywhere you can download the Kindle app, including iOS and Android.

    And if you don’t want to read it yourself but know a gamer who might be interested, remember you can click the “Give as a GIft” link on the product page and surprise a friend this holiday season.

    Blood, Sweat, and Pixels isn’t just a book about the joys of playing a new game or living out one’s dream of seeing the game they create become reality. It’s a real-life look at the games industry, the “crunch” time that happens right up until a game’s launch, and the stress game developers go through with each new title.

    The book dives into stories covering some of the industry’s most successfu…

  • The Polaroid Moto Mod prints retro photos with incredible technology

    Eighty years ago, a company called Polaroid sprouted from a garage not far from the current location of the MrMobile studio. The company’s founder soon developed a special polarization technology that was rapidly adopted across a slew of products ranging from desk lamps to sunglasses. That work later led to military contracts including pilot goggles, spy satellites, and a special synthetic quinine for treating malaria in troops serving in tropical regions. While that last bit sounds out of character for a company specializing in optical science, it isn’t: quinine has photosensitive properties that make it useful for photography. Over the next 40 years that’s where Polaroid built its empire: with instant cameras that didn’t need a darkroom to develop their film.

    Flash forward to 2017. The new Polaroid Moto Mod (or Polaroid Insta-Share Printer, to be precise) doesn’t use any of the technology mentioned above. What’s more, the “Polaroid” brand on its backside has been bough…
