NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Lollipop update finally rolls out

That was quite a mouthful, but the goodies that SHIELD Tablet owners will be receiving in today's update will definitely be a handful as well. NVIDIA has started the release of its major update to the gaming device and, as promised, the update not only brings in Android 5.0 to the tablet but a whole host of new features, not least among them the new GRID on-demand game rental system that brings triple-A PC games to mobile.

Connect your smartphone to the PC wirelessly with ADB WiFi

More often than not, you still need your wires to plug in your smartphone to your desktop computer or your laptop, either to sync it, transfer big files or sometimes, even to charge it. But for those times when you're missing your cables (which happens a lot to be honest), you would need an app to help you with your connectivity needs. If you are a user of the Android Debug Bridge (ADB), now you have an accompanying app that would allow your smartphone to link up to your computer wirelessly.

Dodo Master lets you digitally “rescue” an extinct bird

Dodos may already be (sadly) extinct, but at least it will live on through games like Dodo Master. And this is not just an Angry-Bird type of game but a well-crafted and well-tested puzzle-platformer game that lets you become a hero and save a bird and its future descendants as you try to escape from predators who would like to have scrambled Dodo eggs for breakfast.

Control your phone’s LED light notification with Light Flow

Do you get bored or annoyed with your smartphone's notification light and wished you could make it more exciting (well, as exciting as any LED light can get)? An app says you can now control what color it will show for specific notifications as well as repeat sounds or make a pattern for certain things that you deem important enough to be noticed.

Ditto: for when you forget your phone or important calls

If you're the type of person who doesn't want to constantly check your mobile phone and yet you're expecting important phone calls, you would need a device that will let you know if that call is coming through, even with your phone a little farther away. Or if you're someone who always seems to forget his/her mobile device, you would need something to remind you when you've done so. A Kickcstarter project is aiming to bring that product to you in one tiny package with Ditto.

YotaPhone 2 brings its dual screen to London December 3

If you're tired of boring, mainstream smartphones and want to have a twist on your mobile device, then the new YotaPhone 2 might be right up your alley. The first YotaPhone captured the curiosity and imagination of the mobile world last year by slapping a power-saving always-on e-ink display on the back of the smartphone. Now this two-faced mobile device is back, this time with a sleeker physique and with a bit of touch sensitivity on the back side as well.

Five Nights at Freddys back to terrify you with new toys

If you can't get enough of homicidal bears that are out to scare the beejezus out of you, well the good news is that Five Nights at Freddy's is back with a new installment. The bad news is that there are new and probably more terrifying characters that will make you thankful you don't have a real security job at a real pizza joint. The point-and-click survival game's second edition has been teased by developers for the past month, showing the dilapidated animatronic toys, and now they're probably back for vengeance.
