The latest streaming addition for Chromecast has been announced, and this one is arriving just in time for the beginning of the 2014 Major League Baseball season. Simply put, MLB.TV subscribers will be able to stream to Chromecast.

Verizon Wireless has officially launched the latest Lucid branded device. This time around we are seeing the LG Lucid 3, which has entered the lineup with a 4.7-inch qHD (960 x 540) display and running Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. This one may not be the powerhouse some are looking for, however sometimes we have to look to price, and this one is hard to argue.
OnePlus will be launching the One smartphone on April 23rd. We've already seen confirmation on that date, as well as some pricing and market details. But up until now the details around making a purchase had yet to be discussed. It seems likely that many would have assumed they could just make a purchase. But that will not be the case.
Yahoo has rolled out the latest update for the Flickr app. This update has the app jumping to v3.0, and users will likely notice the redesign.

A redesign for the Google+ Android app has been discovered, showing a wholly new layout and different ways to access functions.

Once again, Google+ users may be forced to re-learn how to use the social service.
YouTube has received an update today, complimenting the slew of other Google apps we’ve seen rolling in new or changed. This one is the biggest update for the service in some time, as it now allows for live channels to be casted to a Chromecast device.

While Google+ doesn’t have ads, it does have posts. Recent news suggests that rather than add banner ads or other annoying sales tactics, Google is simply going to make posts on Google+ ads for some pages. This could mean a radically different experience for users across the service.
Google annonced their Q1 2014 earnings today, which brought mixed results. While the company is positive in every category versus last year, they fell short of earnings expectations. That’s caused their stock to tumble a bit in after hours trading.
With the launch of Google’s Camera app, we thought it would be a good time to take a quick run-through of what you can expect with the newest camera app on the market. Straight from Google, we get a slew of functionality that comes across simply. That doesn’t make it perfect, though, as we found when running it through some very simple tasks.
