Apple’s iPhone with its exclusive games dominated the gaming market for a long time. Then, a funny thing happened. Android started to grow and grow and grow to such a degree, that the Google Play app store literally features hundreds of thousands of games available for download. Luckily enough, 2014 wasn’t just a good year for Android games because so many emerged, but because so many good ones did and you can see below some of our favorite ones.

1) Badland

1

Gorgeous to look at and fun to play, Badland is a side-scrolling game where you make a creature (looking like a cross between a bat and a hedgehog) fly, trying to avoid as many obstacles as possible. The physics engine is more complicated than it seems at first sight and the levels are literally giving you a hundred ways to die, by being stacked with hazardous objects, like knives, hammers or cogwheels, just to mention a few. What’s more, if you can’t find your way out, there is a local multiplayer mode available, which lets up to four users play on the same device. Hey, four heads must be more useful than one, right?

2) Angry Birds Star Wars II

2

We’ve lost count of the many Angry Birds games available, but despite their oversaturation, it shouldn’t be that shocking that they still manage to find a place on our list. The Star Wars II game is great fun, especially since the birds look like Jedi knights, fighting against green pig stormtroopers. The settings are familiar enough for any Star Wars fan and the fact that there is a seventh installment down the pipeline should only increase the interest in such thematically-based games.

3) Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3 almost looks like…the real deal; it has such great visuals, that we are amazed that this is a smartphone game and not a console one.The motion-controlled steering works like a charm and this is something difficult to pull off when it comes to smartphones. The free version lets you participate in races with your car(s) fine, except you have to wait quite a lot between races. If you mind that, Real Racing 3 is the kind of game worth making you spend a few bucks to get rid of all the limitations.

4) Batman: Arkham Origins

4

Batman: Arkham Asylum was the game that started it all a few years ago on PC. What proved to be one of the most innovative arcade-style combat game series, finally made its way on the Android market. Arkham Origins is a prequel to Asylum, featuring a younger and more inexperienced Batman, fighting villains like Deadshot, Bane or Electrocutioner. Attacking is done by swiping and tapping the screen and combos can be realized by combining offensive and defensive maneuvers, to disable more opponents at once.

5) Subway Surfers

5

Labeled as an “endless running” game, Subway Surfers consists in avoiding trains coming your way and collecting as many coins as possible, using several power ups, like jetpacks, jumping jacks, magnets or sneakers. Daily challenges and missions help increase your score and mystery boxes can unlock characters or give additional score boosters.The game is set in various cities, like Bangkok, New Orleans or London.

5 Unusual Android Apps To Try

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting Reviews

The first thing that anyone who buys a new Android phone or tablet does, is to head straight to the Play store and start loading up on apps. After all, what is the use of a brand new device if you don’t have anything on it to show off its capabilities? Apart from the mandatory Facebook, Twitter and Skype installations you might be wondering what else is lurking undiscovered in the Play store. There are plenty of unusual apps to try out, but it requires you to look beyond the myriad of floppy, flippy and flashy clones that have sprung up in the wake of Flappy Bird.

Carrr Matey

1

Don’t you just hate it if you park your car at a busy mall and then promptly forget where it is located? Trying to find your vehicle while lugging around groceries and dodging other cars is nobody’s idea of fun, this is where Carrr Matey comes in handy. Sure, you could use one of the car locator apps available, but Carrr Matey ups the ante with a pirate flavored theme. Use the “Drop Anchor” button to mark the location of your car on the map and then when it is time to hit the road again you use the “Find Vessel” feature. You can even set a docking timer to ensure that you get back to your ship, er car, before your parking meter expires.  You might look a bit strange walking around with what amounts to a compass guiding you back to your car, but that is part of the fun.

Censor Bleep

2

 Everyone knows that familiar bleep sound that emanates from the television whenever someone utters something that is deemed to foul for the ears of the public. Thanks to the censor bleep applications you can do it yourself for amusing or annoying your friends. This app features a big red button which produces the censoring bleep for as long as you hold it down. Just words of advice, if you plan on actually censoring your language using this app make sure that you have the volume turned up high!

Scientific Sci-fi Scanner Lite

3

This one is for all the science-fiction buffs that want to turn their Android device into an interactive multi-sensor and data visualization scanner. The best part is that this app actually works! You can opt for a paid version with more functionality, but there is already some very interesting thing available in the free “Lite” version. The “Device” module displays data about your Android device while the “Gyro” module displays the attitude of your device on a 3-axis bubble level. For non-geeks this means the “Up” position of your device is marked on a 3-D sphere which rotates as you move the device. The program also plays some suitably sci-fi sounding background sounds while you operate it to impress (or confuse) bystanders even more.

Puzzle Alarm Clock

4

There is no shortage of alarm clocks for Android, but how many of them actually ensure that they have done their job and woken you up? Puzzle Alarm Clock ensures that you don’t simply hit the snooze button and head back to dreamland by requiring you to work a little in order to turn it off. For example, it is able to email you a QR code sheet which you must print and hang away from your bed. When the alarm goes off it can only be de-activated by hoofing it over to the print out and scanning one of the codes. Of course, this can still be cheated by hanging the printout close to the bed, so how about solving a mini-game involving colors, shapes, memory cards or even mat equations? You can even set the amount of puzzles that you have to solve in a row to turn the alarm off if you are feeling extra masochistic.

Metal Detector

5

Let’s face it, real metal detectors are expensive and the chances of finding treasures very slim. With the metal detector app you can enjoy all the benefits of a real detector, but without the associated costs. You have to hold your phone or tablet pretty close to the metal for it to be detected, so it is probably more useful for finding loose change in the back of the sofa than using out in public. It might be a gimmick, but it is a gimmick that actually seems to work. When using this app, the magnetic field is displayed on the screen and if you bring it close to any metal, the strength of the field will increase. According to the developer this app is also popular with ghost hunters, so be careful that you encounter any vengeful spirits when searching for buried treasure…

These are only a small selection of the weird and wonderful apps that are available on the Play store. Some are genuinely useful in their own strange ways while others are purely for entertainment purposes. Be careful when you get hooked on finding more strange apps though a there is no telling how deep the rabbit hole goes!

Samsung Dominates Android Internet Traffic

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting News

(The Hosting News) – Just how much do Samsung devices contribute towards Android-based Internet traffic? Well, it’s a pretty big chunk. According to statistics unveiled by research firm Chitika on Tuesday, Samsung accounted for 47.2% of such data in the North American market.

Chitika relied on its advertising networks to get the results.

“Samsung’s extensive usage of Android as the operating system for the majority of its smartphones and tablets, along with the company’s success in the marketplace, has led Samsung to be the leading Android device manufacturer,” stated the company via a news release.

Other companies that led behind Samsung included the likes of HTC (9.7%), Motorola (9.5%), Amazon (8.8%), LG (8.3%), ZTE (2.5%) and Google (2.5%).

So exactly which Samsung devices were lighting it up? According to Chitika, the Samsung Galaxy S III pretty much dominated, covering 32% of Samsung’s traffic. That despite Samsung having released the S4 in April. The Samsung Galaxy Ace also performed particularly well.

Meanwhile, Chitika pointed to Samsung’s “total marketing budget” as a reason for the company’s success with the Google mobile OS.

Geek Ethicist: Robot Wives and Android Prostitutes

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting

“Dear Ethicist–
How come I don’t have a robot wife yet?
Sincerely– Still Waiting”

Dear SW, You won’t have to wait long.  “Lovotics” Robot Love is already in the geek lexicon.

The term refers to the loving robots.  The concept made a categorical leap forward last year with the work of  Hooman Samani, an artificial intelligence scientist from the Social Robotics Lab at the National University of Singapore who developed a robot with artificial hormones that respond to affection.  His work  demonstrates that humans easily have the capacity to use robots as surrogates for our human love objects.  Our real human hormones respond to the robots’ fake hormones.  (Yes, robots fake everything.) Among other hot-bots, Samani linked two pairs of robot lips so a person on one side of the world can transmit an authentic kiss to another person on the other side of the world.  But certainly it  is just a matter of time before someone develops the AI to allow a computer to kiss back all on its own. So the AI love-bot is only a small step away. Prosti-bots are already, so to speak, in the pipeline and are expected on the market within the next five years.  Imagine the market for really hot mindless prostitutes for rent or sale with no risk of jail or venereal disease!

Some years back a Nobel prize scientist Dr. Nüsslein-Volhard wrote that everyone should have a wife. She wanted one herself.  Naleighna Kai wrote a book with a similar plot: a wife fights for custody of her soon to be ex-husband’s mistress. And there is no getting around it, wives really are great.  So clearly everyone should have one.  Married women especially need wives to help them manage the big three: houshold, husband and kids.  But everyone also needs a chainsaw and a box of wrenches; so robot husbands might be helpful too.  Put it all together and robo-spouse is inevitable.

All that joy aside, the realm of robo-love is filled with real danger for humans. I refer you to Matthias Scheutz, David Levy, and Blay Whitby on this.  The primary problem is people really do fall in love, and hate, with both animate and inanimate entities.  We even get jealous of inanimate objects.  Who hasn’t felt jealous of a partner’s fascination with a new computer game?  So, in Scheutz’s terms,  the dangers of “Unidirectional Emotional Bonds” (we love robots that remain indifferent to us)  are enormous, as are the risks of inter-human jealousy caused by unidirectional robo-love.  Would you kill a person to protect your indifferent robo-spouse? or harm your human spouse for loving an indifferent android prostitute? or punch your partner for kicking your little cutesy Roomba?  Perhaps.

So, should humans even go down the dangerous path to loving our robots?  I say a big YES!  The problem, however, is not that we will begin to love robots deeply and they will at best fake empathy and everything else. The biggest problem is, if our robo-spouses seem to love us, will we have a duty to show them genuine respect in return?  Will their merely apparent cognitive abilities earn them real rights?  And here too, I’m afraid the answer is yes.

If  we actually love our robots then we will have to respect them. This is also the foundation of pets’ rights. Your dog does not love you like you love your dog.  For your dog, you are at best Alpha. But for us, pooch can be like a child. And it is only our human love for our pets that gives our pets their rights. There is a world of difference between a pet chicken and a fryer, but they cluck exactly the same.

Since no one would want to be exploited, no one should exploit others.  And the way empathy works, it would be impossible to love something that is not, in principle, exploitable.  Yes we love ideas, but that is an entirely different category of love than loving our children and our spouses or even our pet chickens and our prostitute-Roombas.  Love requires the willingness to sacrifice a bit of yourself for the well-being of those you love.  If you really love little Roomba you will sacrifice for that little cutie too. And the paradox of love is that humans gain a personal benefit from our empathy for those we love.  So… if you really loved your robo spouse regardless of its indifference to you, you’d still have to go to movies you don’t really like that much for the sake of maintaining real robo-love.

Does my screen look fat in this case?  No! Your screen looks –wow– just great, honey, really just great.

Mobile Web Conference Hosting & Screen sharing on Android & iPad using AlwaysOnPC (Zoho example)

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting Reviews

This demo shows how AlwaysOnPC enables mobile collaboration: The Zoho Meeting web conferencing/screen-sharing solution relies on Flash and Java-applets and does not work on native mobile browsers. However with AlwaysOnPC, users can initiate and host Zoho Meetings from iPad, iPhone, or Android with participants on any device or computer. They can share their AlwaysOnPC screen to conduct presentations, software demonstrations, webinars and more, and even delegate presenter controls to participants. A growing number of Cloud-based services have built their offerings on Flash, Java script or applets, Silverlight, and even many HTML5 features which don’t work correctly on the native iPad or Android Browsers. Thus, only a subset of the functionality of these sites is available on mobile devices. Examples include Zoho®, Microsoft’s Office 365®, Quickbooks Online, Google® Apps, and many more. The AlwaysOnPC Mobile App bridges this gap. AlwaysOnPC gives users access to a complete virtual computer directly from their iPad or Android device, liberating them to use these powerful services. For example, using Chrome inside AlwaysOnPC users can perform tasks in Zoho, Office 365, or Google Docs that are often difficult or impossible on mobile apps and browsers: Create, upload or import documents and presentations from online storage or other web repositories; Use full editing features, including the ability to create, re-touch, insert and re-size images, graphics, tables and charts into
