Adobe Lightroom update: RAW support, access to microSD

Sometimes, you need to work on your photographs in the RAW. Okay, we don't actually mean photo editing while you're butt naked, but if you're a real photographer, you know we mean the RAW file format, or the yet "unprocessed" shots you take with your camera. The latest update to Adobe Lightroom brings you the ability to work with RAW images, but with a slight caveat, especially if you're using older Android devices.

Woman files case against Google for unauthorized charges

Racking up hundreds to thousand of dollars on your mobile phone or data account is not unusual. We've heard of similar situations already since anything is actually vulnerable to security hacks especially if one is not careful. The latest case is that of a California woman who is filing a complaint against Google for its inadequate security. Because of security flaws, her Google Play Store account has been exploited by hackers. The result: thousands of dollars of unauthorized charges.

BBC Sports app now has widget for top stories

With the sheer number of apps that we have installed on our smartphones and tablets, we don't get to open them everyday (unless you do need them for work or school). But what if you really wanted to be updated about something that interests you but you don't have time to open up the app everyday? If your interest is sports, then you'd probably be happy that the BBC Sports app's newest update is giving you a widget to make things easier for you.

AlarmRun scares you into actually waking up when you have to

One of the greatest and most constant challenge that every person faces, especially in this constantly evolving world, is how to actually wake up without having to press the snooze button 100x. There have been a lot of alarm apps available, where developers think of the most "creative" ways to drag you out of bed. A new app will attempt to social media shame you if you don't wake up on time. We don't know whether to kiss the developers of AlarmRun or throw real alarm clocks at them.

S Health now available on Google Play Store for Galaxy devices

If you've been using Samsung's S Health app to keep track of your fitness activities and other health-related activities, now you'll be able to update it easily as the OEM has decided to uncouple the app from its own Galaxy Apps Store. You can now also find it on the Google Play Store as well so that any new versions that they will release will find its way faster to your smartphone.

Say bye to old YouTube apps, Data API v2 will no longer be supported

Google is currently updating YouTube and this includes the Data API v3 getting more additions like RSS push notifications, captions, and comments. This new YouTube API supports most features from the Data API v2. Video flagging will be added in the next few days so don't worry if you don't see this feature right now, it will come very soon. Just in case you forget, Google's YouTube team announced that they would be retiring the Data API v2 on April 20, 2015. That day has passed which means some apps will no longer be supported.

Chrome 42 now allows push notifications, APIs now available

Almost anything can be done or shared on the Internet right now. The web has proved to us time and again its power to bring information to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. If a person or a brand wants to share an idea, one can easily create a website that provides information and offer a rich online experience. More and more people are going mobile now so it's important that websites adapt and adjust by giving a better mobile experience to people.

Twitter releases new free-for-all DM settings (if you want to)

While it is fun to have public conversations on social media, there are some discussions that need to be taken to a more private setting. And if that convo you're having is on Twitter, your best recourse is Direct Messaging. But what if the person/entity is not following you or you're not following them? An awkward "Please follow me" is not great to see on your timeline. Good thing Twitter has now changed the way we can use DMs for a (hopefully) better interaction.
