[Fire Sale] Amazon Admits Defeat, Now Offering Unlocked 32GB Fire Phone For $199 With No Contract

nexusae0_thumb_thumbAmazon was forced to concede that its much-anticipated Fire Phone was not a big seller when AT&T dropped the price mere weeks after it was released. When the retailer’s quarterly results were announced, we learned the scale of the screw up. Now Amazon is washing its hands of the whole mess. It’s unloading unsold 32GB Fire Phones unlocked for $199 off-contract. The off-contract price at launch was $650 and AT&T charged $199 with a 2-year agreement.

Ubisoft Publishes WWI Drama Game Valiant Hearts: The Great War For Android And Android TV

unnamed (1)Valiant Hearts isn’t your usual war game. You won’t be blasting through thousands of bad guys like BJ Blazkowitz, you won’t be commanding an entire army like an over-the-top Command & Conquer general. Valiant Hearts is incredibly story focused, as it considers itself more of a playable comic book than a video game. It’s also about World War I, which hasn’t exactly been a popular subject for video games.

This trailer is for the PC and console version, but the mobile version looks very similar.

B&H App Gets Big Material-Inspired Makeover

unnamed

You may not be able to tell from the product icon but B&H, purveyor of everything photo, video, and audio, has updated its app with tons of material-inspired elements.

Apparently inspired by Google’s new design direction, the company’s app is now jam-packed with illustrations, material-inspired transitions, vivid colors and cards.

The app’s approach to organizing information swings in both directions – the home page serves up a huge, colorful illustration, along with bright promotional cards and shortcuts (along with a search FAB).

Seven Android Apps Join The Chrome-Compatible Lineup

unnamed (2)

Since Google I/O we’ve been waiting anxiously to see which apps would be among the first to gain compatibility with Chrome OS. As Sundar Pichai explained at this summer’s conference, Google plans to get Android apps running natively on the company’s desktop OS, using App Runtime for Chrome.

Google is carefully curating the experience, however, working with select developers to make apps available through Chrome’s web store. In September, Duolingo, Evernote, Vine, and Sight Words came to Chrome, and today Google announced a lineup of seven new apps, including Cookpad, Couchsurfing, Overdrive, and four others.
