This $11 quick charger from Amazon will charge your phone 75% faster (deal is back!)

Last week, we told you about a great deal happening on Amazon. For just $11, users were able to purchase a special charger that uses Quick Charge 2.0 technology to charge their compatible smartphones and tablets up to 75% faster than some stock wall chargers. This was apparently a pretty appealing prospect for BGR readers, because they flooded the site and the charger was sold out a short while later.

Well if you missed out on that deal, don’t despair: The $11 quick charger deal is back on at Amazon — at least, while supplies last. More →

Here’s the complete set of 38 new emoji coming to your phone next year

Where would the world be without emoji? Sure, people would be able to communicate a bit less awkwardly in person. And yes, perhaps at least one person under the age of 25 would probably know the difference between your and you’re. But those are small prices to pay for the ability to text someone with a series of cute little graphics instead of having to string sentences together.

Well, emoji fans, you’re in for a treat: There are 38 new emoji coming soon to an iPhone or Android phone near you, and we’ve got the full list right here. More →

Sorry, Tidal: Kanye West’s new album may be an Apple Music exclusive

Sorry, Tidal: Kanye West’s new album may be an Apple Music exclusive

An intriguing rumor from the music industry publication HITS Daily Double claims that the release date for Kanye West’s upcoming album, titled Swish, might be timed to coincide in some way with the upcoming launch of Apple Music. If this is indeed the case, it stands to reason that Kanye’s new album may very well be an Apple Music exclusive at launch.

“Kanye West is making changes, distancing himself from Tidal, firing Roc Nation and managing himself, with an unofficial assist from the Jenner-Kardashian clan,” the report claims. “As for Kanye’s long-delayed album, there’s some chatter that the release will be connected to Apple Music’s launch.”

The NSA came up with a brilliantly sneaky way to hack your Android phone

Once again, we have to tip our cap in grudging admiration for the lengths the National Security Administration will go to hack into our mobile devices. The Intercept has published some new documents leaked by Edward Snowden that show how the NSA and other spy agencies at one point planned to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks between end users and Android app stores to infect users’ phones with spyware.

Need for Speed 2015 Teaser

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

By on May 21, 2015 at 9:15 PM.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was one of my favorite games of the last generation. It’s the second best open world racing game ever made (after the inimitable Forza Horizon 2), but its follow-up, Need for Speed Rivals, just didn’t connect with me. I wanted something even bigger and more impressive, but what I got was a conservative step into the new console generation.

A year and a half later, developer Ghost Games is back with another Need for Speed, and the first teaser just went live.

HBO Game of Thrones Piracy

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

Try as it might, HBO simply can’t keep Game of Thrones piracy at bay. Despite HBO’s best efforts as of late, which have included going after Periscope users and even bars holding public viewings of the show, the demand for GOT is simply too overwhelming to keep piracy in check.

This week’s most recent episode was reportedly downloaded over 3.5 million times in just a 24-hour period, setting a new record in the process. So even with HBO Now subscriptions presumably doing quite well (the iOS app is the 8th highest grossing app on the App Store), GOT related piracy is seemingly a force that can’t be stopped.
