Having crushed its $ 400k funding target on Kickstarter last year, Stainless Steel games has finally delivered the goods for Android users. An improved re-release, Carmageddon: Reincarnation, is now available on Google Play for $ 1.99. Show sufficient disregard for pedestrians and you might even get there in time to download it free.
Barnes & Noble’s refusal to open its ecosystem has long been one of our principle complaints about the company’s tablet offerings. The Nook HD and HD+ are extremely nice pieces of hardware that have been held back by their own walled software offerings — having a fast device with a nice screen only gets you so far without the proper apps. The company line up to now has been that walling off content allows for a sort of quality control, assuring that apps are developed specifically for the unique form factor of its devices. And while there’s perhaps something to be said for that sentiment in the sometimes-fragmented world of Android devices, it was hard to ignore the fact that offering up exclusive access to content through your own marketplace assures better cash flow. It also, unfortunately, means that without extensive developer outreach, there are sure to be plenty of popular apps that just never make it over to your side of the fence.
With its announcement tonight, B&N acknowledges that, in this case, open is better. The company has responded directly to user feedback and will be issuing a software update to its Nook HD and Nook HD+ devices (sorry Nook Tablet and Color owners) that brings Google Play directly to the desktop. The software will come pre-loaded on new devices and will be available as an over-the-air update. If you can’t wait that long, you’ll also be able to download it directly from the bookseller’s site. The update also brings a few other tweaks to the system, but this is far and away the biggest news. The first question we asked upon getting a quick demo: will you be able to buy content like books, magazines and movies through Play? Yep, that’s coming too.
Smartphone owners have no shortage of cloud-based safety nets, whether it’s Google’s services, iCloud or any number of file sync providers. Few of these come from the carrier, however, and Verizon is gambling that its now-deploying Verizon Cloud service will serve as a crutch for anyone replacing a phone on its network. The currently Android- and web-only release offers daily backups of the usual media libraries as well as call logs, contacts and messages. While that isn’t special in itself, Verizon is also promising cross-platform safeguards: both an iOS app (available “soon”) and future OS support should let customers fetch some of their data if they switch platforms. Just don’t count on Verizon Cloud as an alternative to established rivals unless you’re both loyal to Verizon and willing to spend. Users get a thin 500MB of space for free, and meaningful storage ranges from $ 3 per month for 25GB through to $ 10 for 125GB. Should there be little danger of leaving Big Red, though, Verizon’s service and a matching Android app update are available today.

After testing service at six lucky subway stations, New York City is now introducing Wi-Fi and cell service at 30 stations around the city as part of an effort to get the entire underground connected by 2016. The city didn’t have to spend a dime: Transit Wireless and the carriers are covering the cost of the entire project, estimated at up to $ 200 million. AT&T, T-Mobile USA, and Boingo Wireless joined in to provide the service. Verizon and Sprint have committed to provide service to their customers as well, although those contracts are still being finalized. In the meantime, anyone can hop on the Wi-Fi network for free thanks to a sponsorship from HTC. The service is only available in the stations and does not include tunnels, although…
Tumblr has just launched an app for Windows Phone 8, aiming to deliver an experience uniquely suited to Microsoft’s mobile OS. Like the company’s existing offerings on iOS and Android, you’ll be able to follow users, post to your own Tumblr in a variety of formats, and yes — there’s full GIF support baked in. Tumblr says GIFs will play as users scroll through the app, which does an admirable job of sticking to Microsoft’s design guidelines.
Windows Phone users can expect some exclusive functionality, too; you can opt to have Tumblr display the latest images in your feed on the WP8 lock screen or the app’s own live tile. Bringing Tumblr on board is the latest victory in Microsoft’s ongoing quest to bring its app catalog more in line…
Let’s be frank: many dedicated console gamers among us have at least briefly dreamed of ordering food without having to lift our hands from the controller. That’s about to be more than a fleeting fantasy for Xbox 360 owners, as Microsoft is launching a Pizza Hut app today for those permanently lodged in the living room. The release puts all of the delivery menu a quick hop away on the Dashboard, including custom orders. Buyers can tempt their friends through Facebook, and there’s even Kinect support for greasy-handed customers who’d rather not touch the gamepad (or a napkin, apparently) when requesting a second serving. Microsoft stresses that the Pizza Hut partnership isn’t the start of a broad trend toward ordering real products through an Xbox, which is just as well — our arteries can only take so much inactivity at once.
With rate decreases on both sides of the Atlantic, and a battery replacement pledge, Nissan is plainly keen to entice you over to the EV side of the fence. The most up to date ploy can be found in the kind of a battery renting scheme in the UK market. Calling them “Flex” models, vehicles bought with a leased battery will start at & pound; 15,990 (about $ 24,000) thanks to a British government grant scheme that knocks & pound; 5,000 ($ 7,700) off the rate. It’ll then cost & pound; 70 ($ 108) and upwards a month to rent the battery relying on the contract and mileage. The new British-built version likewise comes with a swathe of renovations (over 100 claims Nissan), with top-billing going to the extended variety– from 109 to 124 miles. With charging times also said to be close to 50 percent of those of the initial Leaf, the automobile definitely appears to be relocating with the times. Those who prefer to purchase the car and battery together as one, can still do so, at the expenditure of the & pound; 5,000 grant. Still unsure? Keep in mind even more improvements could be heading.
