Get alerted when you get hacked with Passrock Protection [DEALS]

We've espoused a lot of security and privacy tools at Android Community Deals, particularly VPN services that make you invisible to snooping eyes on the Internet.

Times like those, the important first step is getting informed when and where the compromise took place, so that you can take appropriate action at once. And this is exactly where the Passrock Hacker Protection service comes into play.

League of Angels – Fire Raiders hands-on

But does it have the right ingredients to bring that success to mobile as well? Read on to find out.

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.

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.
