Pokemon GO STADIUM event will make you NEED to move to Japan

For Pokemon GO this week the folks at Niantic have reminded us that they've got a MASSIVE event coming up in Japan. This sort-of-secret but very much public event will take place in Yokohama Stadium in Japan, and it's going to take place at the same time as the CUTEST holiday of all time. That is the PIKACHU OUTBREAK where they suggest "a special Pokemon GO experience is taking place."

Google Play Music’s New Release Radio arrives for everyone

Google Play Music’s New Release Radio arrives for everyone

Last month, a new radio station on Google Play Music called 'New Release Radio' arrived for Samsung's latest flagship smartphones. It was a Samsung exclusive, apparently, but that exclusivity didn't last long. The feature was at first available to some non-S8 owners via a couple tweaks, and now it is officially available for all Google Play Music users. What does it have to offer? Everything you want to hear.

15 classic retro games you can play on Android right now

There's no shortage of great modern games, but sometimes you need something to stoke the fires of nostalgia. Unfortunately, many old games have not been recreated for smartphones, the reasons for which are vast and, at times, baffling. You can download an emulator and ROMs, of course, but quality is spotty. While some games aren't (legally) available on your phone, others are, and we've compiled them into this handy list.

This is how Uber and Yandex are taking over Russia right now

This is how Uber and Yandex are taking over Russia right now

Uber announced today that they'd be taking a step up in the world by buying up a bunch of Russia's Google - Yandex. If you'll take a look at Yandex on the web, it'll become clear rather quickly what they're in a position to do. They've got all the bases covered - or nearly all the bases covered - for a Russia-based do-everything company of which Uber now owns a significant portion.

Google weeds out intrusive apps by looking at its peers

Google weeds out intrusive apps by looking at its peers

Tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are, as the saying goes. Google has apparently taken that age-old adage to heart in trying to protect users from less than conscientious Android apps. Such apps might use permissions and data more than they should, at least compared to other similar apps that behave properly. And while the reasoning behind such peer grouping, Google unsurprisingly injects a pinch of machine learning to make it a less overwhelming task.

Google Play Movies gets 4K HDR streaming option

Google Play Movies gets 4K HDR streaming option

Google has some good news for the 4K TV owners out there: Google Play Movies now offers up 4K HDR videos, though not all movies are available with both. Of course, you could also take advantage of this streaming option if you have a high-end handset with a suitable display, such as the new Galaxy S8*. It isn't clear how many movies are available in 4K HDR, but finding the shows is easy using search. *UPDATE: It would seem that HDR support will not be working on smartphones at this time, and is instead only working with the Chromecast Ultra.

This KFC chicken phone is part of our new dystopian reality

This KFC chicken phone is part of our new dystopian reality

A Huawei-made KFC-branded smartphone is coming to China, and the entire smartphone industry should be ashamed. This should, by all means, be the end of consumers assuming that smartphones are something for which they should pay a premium. A smartphone is no longer a precious sort of item that has inherent value beyond its assembled components - and it's KFC's fault.

Google Search shows users the best torrenting websites

In a bizarre turn of events, at least in light of the company's anti-piracy actions, Google Search shows users the best torrenting websites in a single, convenient scrolling set of cards. These cards appear at the top of Google Search when users query 'best torrenting/torrent sites,' and they include things like isoHunt, Demonoid, The Pirate Bay, and more.
