The SNES classic Secret of Mana is now available for Android, but you probably wont like the price

Secret of Mana cover front

There’s nothing that brings back feelings of nostalgia like firing up a good old fashioned Super Nintendo game. The combination of 16-bit visuals and old-school soundtracks can instantly teleport you to a time when life was all about pogs, slap bracelets, and memorizing time tables. After launching for iOS back in 2010, Square Enix was kind enough to finally bring the 1993 classic Secret of Mana to Android devices.

Secret of Mana cover back

Featuring a Zelda-like top-down view and real-time battle system, Secret of Mana was a breath of fresh air from Square Enix’s typical turn-based RPGs. The release shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, Square Enix announced an Android port was due sometime in the fall back in August.

Available for a cool $9 on Google Play, Secret of Mana features a slightly tweaked interface (perfect for potato fingers) and 360-degree character movement (original game only had 8-directional movement). No fancy high-res visuals here, this is 16-bit gaming at its finest. Link down below.

Android founder Andy Rubin is no longer working at Google

andy-rubin

After Andy Rubin helped build the best mobile operating system the world has ever seen, it took many by surprise when he decided to leave Android last year to pursue other ventures, building robots within Google’s secretive X labs. Today, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Android co-founder is now leaving Google entirely, creating an “incubator” for new hardware-based startups.

It’s not really directly Android-related per se, but given Andy Rubin is the Godfather of Android, we’re sure this comes as a major blow to Google and the people who’ve worked closely with him for so many years. Google CEO Larry Page had this to say on Rubin’s departure:

“I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next. With Android he created something truly remarkable—with a billion plus happy users. Thank you.”

According to Jessica Lessin of The Information, Rubin was looking for more freedom from his robotics unit, similar to the independent anti-aging company, Calico. Best of luck to him.

Angry Birds Transformers run-and-gun shooter is now finally available for Android

Angry Birds Transformers

Some of you were less than enthusiastic to hear that Rovio, in their insatiable lust to acquire larger stockpiles of money, were teaming up with Hasbro to develop what else, but a new Angry Birds Transformers crossover title. Adding insult to irony was the fact that, despite Android’s dominance in the smartphone market, iOS was given a 2 week exclusive on the title. For all those waiting to exhale, Angry Birds Transformers is now officially available for Android.

This isn’t even the first time Rovio has teamed up with other popular franchises for a mashup (Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Star Wars) but let’s just call it what it is: a money grab. That’s not to say the game is bad, it’s actually quite fun. More of a run-and-gun shooter, the game accomplishes what it set out to do: provide Android users with an easy pick-up-and-play time killer. You control the blaster of a chosen Transformer as he bolts down a level, blasting pigs in the background as they balance on physics-based platforms.

Our only complaint? Angry Birds Transformer doesn’t make a lick of sense. In an, admittedly, pretty rad 80’s style intro cartoon, the birds and pigs have melded into cybernetic, transforming bodies thanks to the “EggSpark.” I think Rovio said it best: they’re birds/pigs disguised as robots, disguised as, well…. other things. Don’t even get us started on the fact that the Grimlock bird — which is a bird, disguised as a dinosaur robot — now transforms into a motorcycle. For all that is holy, it seems like every year someone just keeps sh*tting on everything we knew and loved as a kid.

But it could always be worse. They could have went with Michael Bay’s Transformer character models. What’s that you say? Ah, yes. Bumble Bee and Megatron are both Michael Bay designs, not the 80’s cartoon the game is loosely based off of. For the love of Pete. The worst part is despite all this, we’re still going to download and have a blast with this game. Maybe that’s the real point. You can download Angry Birds Transformers for free from the Google Play Store below.

Inbox by Gmail invites are going out to existing Inboxers

Inbox by Gmail promo hero

Last week the tech community went nuts after Inbox by Gmail — Google’s radical new vision for the future of email — was officially unveiled. The only problem is it was only sorta available to the general public, requiring early adopters to send an email first to Google in order to get invited. For all those invited, we originally got word that those selected would soon be able to send out their own invites to friends, family, and/or acquaintances.

Inbox by Gmail Invites

Today, Inbox by Gmail is letting all current Inboxers know that they now have 3 invites to give out. Simply select the big red “+” button and you’ll find the option for “Invite to Inbox” waiting for you. Choose wisely, because you only have 3 invites to give out until Google sends out more sometime later. Because we’re good sports, anyone looking for an invite can simply leave a comment to this post and maybe some good Samaritans will send you one. Good luck!

UPDATE: All of our invites have been taken. Thanks for playing!

You can barely see the bezel on LG’s latest display

07mm lg display

LG Display has announced a remarkable achievement for folks who can’t stand those annoying black bars bordering their screens. The company has developed a 5.3-inch full HD LCD panel that has a bezel width of 0.7mm, which is said to be thinner than the width of a standard credit card.

07mm lg display girl

That mark gives them the title of thinnest bezel in the industry, and there are some pretty darn thin ones out there. LG gave us a pretty good rundown of how they were able to achieve the feat:

To realize the 0.7mm bezel width on the left and right sides of the panel, which is narrower than the 0.8mm thickness of a credit card, LG Display used its “Neo Edge” module processing technology and the world’s first “Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT)” technology.

LG Display’s Neo Edge technology uses an adhesive instead of double-sided tape to attach and completely seal the total area and edges of the panel’s circuit board and backlight unit. Because there is no plastic guide panel to attach the panel and backlight, the Neo Edge technology helps achieve minimal bezel width, while blocking light leakage and being waterproof and dustproof.

The adhesive seal also prevents corrosion that sometimes occurs along the edge of the glass panel when double-sided tape is used, while dramatically improving the panel’s durability despite the narrow bezel because of increased elasticity as the adhesive hardens.

The company’s AIT technology, exclusively developed by LG Display, reduces the need for bezel space because the touch panel is embedded into the LCD module. The technology offers a slim design and excellent touch, while saving costs since a separate process for touch functions is not required.

LG’s all set to begin mass production of the display this November, with Chinese markets set to get first dibs on distribution (mainly due to the advent of demand for displays by many of the country’s up-and-coming OEMs). LG says they’ll also be promoting it and shopping it out on a global scale to anyone finding themselves in need of such a display.

We imagine the company will eventually want to get one of these things loaded up into their own smartphones, though they certainly aren’t talking about any possible internal uses today.
