Qualcomm’s Vuforia SDK beta lets you developer for VR gear

Virtual Reality headsets and eyewear are getting more and more accessible, but it seems that the hardware is outpacing the development of apps and content that would actually make these devices more than just heavy accessories. Each device espouses their own (or someone else's) platform and therein lies part of the problem. Qualcomm, who doesn't have a VR headset of its own but powers some of these, is trying to create a bridge to all these estranged lands. And that bridge is almost here with the beta release of the Vuforia SDK for Digital Eyewear.

Things are moving slowly in the monthly Android Distribution

Things seems to have slowed to almost a standstill in the Android world, at least as far as version adoption is concerned. After an initial growth burst for Android 5.0 Lollipop, things seem to be business as usual, with OEMs getting some of their devices up to date on the more recent Android versions. There are, however, some that seem unwilling to give up the ghost and to go silently into the 0.1 percent night of the Android Distribution chart, lingering around as long as they can.

Enter to win The Chromebook Pixel Giveaway [DEALS]

You could win a brand new, high powered laptop computer when you enter The Chromebook Pixel Giveaway, brought to you by Android Community Deals. Chromebooks by Google entered the portable computer scene a few years ago and have grown in popularity since. They come in a range of styles and price points, but their big selling feature is just how efficiently they run. They boot up quickly and handle operations just as fast thanks to its ultra streamlined Google Chrome operating system, which come preinstalled on all systems.

HTC One M9+ pairs a 2K display with a MediaTek chip

HTC has indeed finally revealed the One M9+, the symbol, not the word, and so far all of the leaks and tips have been pretty much spot on, leaving nothing to the imagination. Perhaps except for one rather surprising item. The One M9+ would have almost trumped the One M9 in almost all aspects save one. The processor. Perhaps to keep costs down after plugging in higher end components, HTC has chosen to go with MediaTek here instead of the Qualcomm that runs the One M9 flagship.

Last chance to get an Icon Bluetooth Speaker at a discount [DEALS]

Android Security report card and the scanning of devices

Let's face it. As much as we love Android, it hasn't exactly been the most secure mobile platform on the planet. Sure, nothing is exactly and perfectly secure, even the walled garden that is iOS but Android has been notorious for making things a little bit easier for miscreants. Of course, that only means that Google has to work incessantly on security and keep vigil over its territory and, today, it's giving itself a pat on the back for a job well done in 2014.

HTC One M8s official: a slightly different One M8 for Europe

Although HTC probably wants most of the world's attention, and money, to be focused on the latest One, it can't simply shake off the legacy that the One M8 has left behind. In fact, while the One M8 itself will fade into history, it is giving the name a lease on new life. This is no One mini 3 but the new One M8s could very well be. We're still not sure what the "s" stands for, but it's definitely not "super". That said, the smartphone could give budget conscious buyers an option that doesn't skimp too much on quality.
