CyanogenMod 11 M11 is out with another round of polishes

No, you're not seeing double. This is indeed CM11 M11, or to be more verbose, the 11th milestone release for CyanogenMod version 11. This release is sort of less spectacular than previous ones and probably rightly so. It hints that most of the development is now focused more on fine tuning than introducing big, invasive, and potentially disruptive features.

Motorola device in FCC might be DROID Turbo for AT&T, T-Mobile

Another Motorola smartphone has dropped by the FCC but it might not be the device that many think or would like to think it is.

Peek moved to developer’s own name, new app pages added

Popular Android utility Peek has a major update, but it's not one that has added new features or fixes bugs. Instead, the update is that the app is now filed under the account of Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo or jedga, Peek's author, instead of his Google Play Store "proxy" Francisco Franco.

Sok and Sao’s Adventure game raises dengue fever awareness

Most games are designed to be entertaining or educational or both, but few carry some social commentary along with them.

Unlocked Xperia Z3 Bootloader affects camera quality

Sony is one of the few Android OEMs that officially advertise support for unlocking their devices' bootloaders, with the usual warnings, of course. It is, however, to be expected that there would be some kinks here and there. The latest issue is reported to affect the Xperia Z3, which loses its impressive camera quality, as well as access to some pre-loaded content, when users decide to unlock the smartphone's bootloader.
