If you are in the US, and are planning to purchase a rugged Android Wear smartwatch, here’s a deal for you: the Casio WSD-F10 is currently going for as low as $312 in the country. Specifically, Amazon has the Black/Black variant listed on its website for that price.

SEGA Forever Collection brings SEGA classics to Android and iOS for free

Many of US remember the classic SEGA games that we grew up with as kids. In order to keep these games relevant (and in order to keep making it money), the Japanese company is launching SEGA Forever to bring back “nearly every SEGA game ever released from every console era – Master System, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Dreamcast – SEGA’s last system before deciding to stop making hardware altogether.

Games will be free to play and ad-supported, though SEGA will likely provide an option to pay a subscription for no-ads. These ads would briefly play before you start playing a game. You’ll also… (Source)

Google’s Android O could be “oatmeal cookie”, but could also be Oreo

Every year we get excited about which dessert could possibly be named the next version of Android. It’s honestly such a trivial piece of information that hard-core Android enthusiasts get riled up about. A new theory suggests that the next version of Android, 8.0, could be named oatmeal cookie.

The theory is strengthened by a couple of hard pieces of evidence. The first piece of evidence was found in Android’s source code as “oc-dev” which was used on several occasions, the most notable of which is the code which states that a Google Pixel devices is running the Android O Developer preview… (Source)

You may have lived thus far while thinking that the most important question one could ask about a smartphone was “Will it blend?”. But apparently you were wrong. “Will it fry?” is much more relevant we’re told – at least in Scotland.

So what are some enterprising chaps from Glasgow to do then? Naturally, coat the Galaxy S8 in authentic Scottish chip shop batter mix, and then place it into an electric fryer (with oil preheated to 200 degrees Celsius). The phone was left in there for a total of 60 seconds, and you can see what came out in the video below, which documents the whole… (Source)

WhatsApp will soon let you share any type of file

Facebook-owned WhatsApp isn’t really known for quickly adding new features, unlike Facebook-owned Instagram or even Facebook Messenger. But WhatsApp is currently testing some new functionality that is sure to be welcome by its many users.

When this goes live for everyone, you’ll be able to send any type of file to your contacts or groups. That’s a marked improvement compared to what the situation is now: while you can send files, you’re limited to specific types, like PDFs, Word documents, spreadsheets, and slides.

It’s unclear why this limitation has existed so far, but the good… (Source)
