‘Rev Heads Rally’ is a New Kart Racing Game from the Makers of ‘Faily Brakes’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Developer Spunge Games has spent the past couple of years making spin-offs and updates that all stem from their endless driver/crasher Faily Brakes, but they’ve now announced a brand new project outside of the Faily world. It’s called Rev Heads Rally and Spunge describes it as “A combative racer that plays homage to Mario Kart – but with real physics and dynamic crashes along with real-time multiplayer and an exciting AR mode.” Hey, I’m sold on that quick pitch! Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is just a ton of pictures in motion, so that’s, like, millions of words worth or something. Basically what I’m trying to say is watch this teaser for Rev Heads Rally to see what it’s like in action.

Rev Heads Rally is shooting for a simple control scheme with auto-acceleration and touching either side of the screen to steer, with buttons available for boosting and activating your power-up items. The release date is pegged for the end of April, but until then you can find a bit more information (with apparently even more to come in the coming days) as well as some discussion about Rev Heads Rally in our forums, and look for this one towards the end of next month.

Dutch case against Samsung for lack of updates finally heads to court

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Early in 2016, it was revealed that Samsung was being sued in the Netherlands for failing to update its phones. The Consumentenbond—a Dutch non-profit promoting consumer protection—was taking Samsung to court for, among other things, not adequately providing two years of updates from the time of purchase. According to Telecompaper, the case is now being heard. 

Of course, Samsung does promise updates for two years after a product is launched, but the Consumentenbond believes that Samsung should be required to provide two years of updates from the time a consumer purchases it, whenever that might be.

Heads of CIA, FBI, NSA say that you shouldn’t use Huawei phones

Huawei Mate 10 Pro review

Huawei’s 2018 hasn’t gotten off to a great start, with both AT&T and Verizon reportedly dropping plans to offer Huawei’s flagship Mate 10 Pro, and now Huawei’s bad year is continuing.

Six US intelligence chiefs have said that Americans should use Huawei products. This group included the heads of the CIA, FBI, and NSA, as well as the director of national intelligence.

Here’s what FBI Director Chris Wray said to the Senate Intelligence Committee:

“We’re deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks.

“That provides the capacity to exert pressure or control over our telecommunications infrastructure. It provides the capacity to maliciously modify or steal information. And it provides the capacity to conduct undetected espionage.”

In response, Huawei explained that its products are used by governments and consumers in 170 countries around the world and that it “poses no greater cybersecurity risk than any ICT vendor.”

Near the end of 2017, rumors said that Huawei’s new Mate 10 Pro flagship would be sold on AT&T and Verizon in the US. That would’ve given Huawei’s presence in the US a huge boost, as most US consumers buy their phones from their carriers but Huawei has largely only been selling its devices unlocked. However, it’s said that AT&T and Verizon backed out of those deals at the last minute due to pressure from the US government.

The unlocked Huawei Mate 10 Pro is now available for pre-order in the US ahead of its February 18 launch.

Google Phone app update adds chat heads with quick controls

Google Phone chat heads widget

Google is pushing out an update to the Google Phone app for devices like Pixel, Nexus, and Android One phones, and it brings with it a neat new feature.

Version 17 of the Google Phone app adds a chat head-style floating widget. Think of it like the chat head feature that we’ve seen before in Facebook Messenger.

The Google Phone chat head works like this: When you’re on a call, you can press the home button and a small photo of the person you’re talking to will appear and stay on top of other apps. You can tap the chat head at any time to go back to the call, mute it, turn on speakerphone, or end the call. You can also drag the widget to the bottom of the screen to end the call or hide the chat head.

There’s no setting to disable the chat head widget, but you can go into your Settings app and find the list of apps that can “Display on top of other apps”. Disable the feature for the Phone app and you should stop seeing the chat head widget during future calls.

This seems like a nifty little feature for the Google Phone app. In the past, we’ve seen phone apps show a red status bar or notification when you leave the phone app during a call, but with this chat head, you get a small widget that you can move around on the screen wherever it’s out of the way and easily end the call, mute the call, or turn on speakerphone without having to jump back to the phone app.

Do you have this feature in your Google Phone app yet?
