Firefox intends to protect more of your data, features in pre-beta

Mozilla still hasn’t given up on its browser product Firefox, which is good to know. Competition is still needed in this part of the game, and it’s good that Mozilla can still keep Google on its toes. Mozilla is currently testing new privacy features in its pre-beta versions of Firefox, which aims to protect the users better in the Private Browsing mode.

Firefox OS-based Matchstick out of Kickstarter soon, project being cancelled

Believe it or not, not all crowdfunded projects turn out to be successful. A few have already failed (so unfortunately), leaving not only the developers but also the backers heartbroken. It's not really so much about the money or profit loss but not being able to achieve success especially after we believe in a project's potential. But business is business and because of several reasons, the group behind Matchstick has decided to no longer push through with the project and refund all the money pledges given by the backers.

HBO NOW already on Android, Amazon Fire devices

Network and cable TV entities have already accepted the reality that consumers are now more likely to watch their favorite programs not on standard TV sets but rather whenever they want to and wherever they are. So instead of lamenting the death of TV (which is actually a fallacy), they are now scrambling to be where the people are. HBO NOW, the cable network’s Internet only service, will now be available for Android devices and Amazon Fire tablets, and soon, for Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick as well.

Charge your smartphone through fire and water with Candle Charger

When power outages happen, what is your first concern? Is it the fact that you can’t use appliances like coffee maker, dishwasher, blender, or even television sets? Of course not! We’re pretty sure almost everyone’s first reaction would be “Crap, I didn’t charge my smartphone!”. But even if you did charge your phone, the battery would eventually drain. And solar chargers will become useless at night. Hand crank generators (yes they exist) can only produce minimal power. A new Kickstarter project called Candle Charger will only require you to have water and a candle so you can charge your smartphone.

Cyanogenmod’s CM11 now ported for the Amazon Fire Phone

I’ve heard lots of people talk about the Amazon Fire Phone as a “pretty good phone if you consider the hardware”. And that it is – you can’t look at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, HD display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (front and back) and say the hardware sucks – it most definitely does not. But everybody, and I mean everybody, will reach that point where Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS will trip them up. It’s simply that much far behind the stock Android experience that it renders itself pretty much as a bad experience. To counter that, the guys at XDA have ported CM11 for the Fire Phone.

Kill them with fire in FireWhip, now available on Android

Sometimes, you really don't need a complicated back story, a cast of interesting characters, award-winning graphics and visuals, scintillating music or even highly-intelligent gameplay. There are days when all you want to do is play a game that is simple and yet fun, with gameplay that will challenge you, but at the same time, you can learn in just a few seconds of opening the game. And we're not talking about the sometimes repetitive match 3 or even endless runner games. FireWhip may have just achieved said requirement for your Android devices.

Lollipop-based Amazon Fire OS 5 launched in developer preview

In terms of hardware, Amazon’s set of Android devices can actually compete, but they lag behind competitors primarily because of their approach to the software area of the devices. They use the heavily tweaked and proprietary Fire OS, a version of Android that does not allow for Google Play Store access. The software has continued to languish in KitKat land, but users should be relatively happy Amazon is now rolling out the Fire OS 5, albeit in a developer preview for now.
