Anti-virus giant Avast sounded off an alarm for mobile Android users, saying that for the past months, some malware and adware have been masquerading as legitimate apps downloadable from the Google Play Store.

Nexus 5 is back in stock, in black and with sizes

Although it seemed that Google was hunkering down on its device offerings, at least those it sells through Google Play Store, it might be making some concessions in light of recent revelations. It has quite silently switched the 2013's Nexus 5 to back to "in stock", perhaps to offset the difficulty in procuring a Nexus 6. Together with the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9, these three devices seem to be Google's final Google Play Store lineup as far as smartphones and tablets are concerned.

HTC One M8 GPE removed from store, leaves future unknown

We've seen Google Play Edition devices come and go from Play Store, usually in order to pave way for newer models. Today, the HTC One M8 GPE silently left the Play Store shelves just as had others before it. But this removal is quite noteworthy because of what it could imply. With the One M8 GPE's exit, there are no more Google Play Edition devices left on Play Store, leaving only the Nexus line to hold the fort and calling into question the survival of the GPE idea.

Mold On Pizza is a tower ‘offense’ game, with weird ingredients

Google Classroom app now available for Android and iOS

Google Classroom was introduced back in May 2014, providing a more efficient way to save on paper and strengthen communication between educators and students.
