Androidify update: animated GIFs, more sharing options

If you've ever felt like the Android mascot should have a version more like you, then you probably have been enjoying the app Androidify, where you can make caricatures of the green robot to look more like you or any other character.

Android Lollipop brings new kill switch feature to smartphones

Much has been said about kill switch especially after the California kill bill switch passed the State Senate last May.

What is it with Google and round Android-powered media players? Calling into mind the ill-fated Nexus Q (odd) ball, Google today has dropped a surprise for those who were just expecting the Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet, and Android 5.0, christened Lollipop.
