Warning: Google's New Anti-Pirate Algorithm Means Minor Change to the Forum

Oct 28, 2014 - 8:43 AM - by dgstorm

We need to share a warning with all of our members and staff here on the site. About a month ago, we started slowly filtering out many of the [Free App] and/or [Free Download] style posts (see the above image as an example) on the site. We realized they seemed a bit too "spammy" and they didn't really contribute much in the way of useful discussion content on the site. As it turns out, we were a bit ahead of the curve in getting this started, and we will now need to take things to the next level to eliminate this stuff even further.

Google has just updated their search algorithm to target these types of spammy posts across the web because most of them end up pointing to pirated software sites, like Pirate Bay, Isohunt and Torrentz.eu. Google specifically calls out sites which carry search keywords like “download free movies,” “watch [movie name] online free,” online free movies,” “movies download,” “watch [movie name]” and “where can I watch [movie name] online.” With the new update, Google will basically "punish" sites for hosting too much of this type of content by reducing their search rankings and more.

Ultimately, the life-blood of keeping our site alive and thriving comes from our search rankings in Google. Because of this stricter anti-piracy update from Google, we have to step up our game to eliminate these types of posts and remove sections which have too much of this type of content. We apologize if this causes inconvenience to any of our members, and we request that you help our amazing staff spot these posts. If you see a collection of "app announcements" with any of these spammy type keywords, please let us know (or if you are an admin or moderator remove them). Afterwards, let JohnDroid or Cereal Killer know so we can follow up if necessary.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we adjust to Google's new changes.

Asus ZenWatch Coming to Taiwan First In Very Limited Quantities

Oct 07, 2014 - 9:19 AM - by dgstorm

At IFA in Germany, one of the more intriguing devices revealed was the Asus ZenWatch Android Wear device. Unfortunately, it looks like its initial release will be in very limited quantities and very limited markets. In fact, according to the latest report, we will only see 300 ZenWatches sold and only in Taiwan at first.

The most interesting thing about this particular Android Wear device is that it seems to have some fairly beefy specs, at least compared to other smartwatches. Here's a breakdown:
  • 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4 GB of storage
  • 1.63" screen with a 320x320 resolution (278 PPI)
  • Gorilla Glass 3

We'll keep you posted if the device comes to any other markets.

Microsoft Officially Unveils Windows 10; Skips Windows 9!

Sep 30, 2014 - 12:38 PM - by dgstorm

Even though this is obviously not Android news, it's still a surprising development in the tech world, so we thought it prudent to share it with you.

It looks like the folks in Redmond can still shock and awe from time to time, although this time it's really just a PR gimmick. Microsoft just officially unveiled Windows 10 to the public. You read that right... they are skipping the Windows 9 name and going straight for the next generation.

While the operating system is still the same thing they have been working on since Windows 8 was a big flop, Microsoft felt that the changes to the OS were so significant it was worth passing over the Windows 9 name. Ultimately this is just a marketing semantics stunt, but it definitely has our attention.

Even more notable is that the release has now slipped farther down the road. According to the report, Windows 10 will be released "later in 2015." Here's a quote with some of the details as to why Microsoft execs decided to go this route,

Yes, the company is skipping the "Windows 9" moniker. Why skip "9"?

"When you see the product in its fullness I think you will agree with us that it is a more appropriate name," [MS executive Terry] Myerson said.

Among other things, Belfiore said the company wants to focus on personalization, to make the Windows experience particular to individual users' tastes and preferences.

"We are trying to hit this balance in just the right way," [MS executive Joe] Belfiore said.

Starting Wednesday, Microsoft is launching a Windows Insider program and will release a technical preview of Windows 10 for laptops and desktops, with other devices to follow.

Microsoft will start talking more about the consumer experience next year at the company's developer conference in the spring, Myerson said. It expects to launch Windows 10 "later in 2015.."
What do you guys think of Microsoft's curve-ball to the media?

Asus Announces New MeMo Pad 7 and Zenwatch Android Wear Smartwatch

Sep 03, 2014 - 7:46 AM - by dgstorm

Before the big Samsung event kicks off in about ten minutes, here's a quick IFA update from Asus. They just announced a couple of new products. The first is their new MeMo Pad 7 which will now have a full-HD display.
Here's the full spec list: Intel Atom CPU, a 64-bit quad-core Z3560 clocked at 1.83 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, microSD slot that can accommodate 64 GB cards, 5 MP camera at the back, 2 MP shooter at the front and 16 GB free cloud storage.

It will be available for €199 (about $260), and will be offered in red, gold and black color variations.

The other device they shared is the Zenwatch Android Wear smartwatch. You can check out the video above for a teaser. Not too many details were revealed regarding this device, but it will sell for 199 Euros. There's no word if Asus plans to bring it to the US.

New 7-Inch Intel-Powered Asus Tablet Stops by the FCC

Aug 05, 2014 - 9:27 AM - by dgstorm

Intel has had a hard time competing with Qualcomm when it comes to chipsets in mobile devices. Of course, that isn't going to stop "Chipzilla" from trying, and their latest offering just showed up in a 7-inch tablet as it stopped by the FCC offices for its certification testing.

The tablet in question will include the Intel 64-bit Moorefield processor called the Atom Z3560. It's a quad-core processor running at up to 1.8GHz. It also will sport the following specs:
  • IPS LCD with a resolution of 1200 by 1920 pixels
  • 5MP camera on the back and a smaller one on the front
  • The usual smattering of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS
  • 16 or 32 gigabytes storage space

Several questions remain. First, will this be an Android tablet? Also, if it is, will it be a new MeMo or will we see another Asus made Nexus 7 (perhaps called the 2014 Edition)?

What do you think it is?
