A slice of heaven [#acpodcast]

Taste this.

Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Russell Holly convene once again via a series of tubes to discuss lots of hot topics in Android news. First, Epic Games is bypassing the Google Play Store for upcoming Android release of Fortnite — requiring users to side-load the game and pay for in-app purchases directly to Epic.

The Galaxy S9 and its Hyperknit case are a match made in heaven

Strange name. Great case.

It’s not often that a case speaks to me, but when the Galaxy S9 was unveiled in Barcelona and the beautifully-lit, cavernous demo area was opened up, I was almost (almost!) as intrigued by the first-party accessories as the phone itself. And I was not disappointed.

Moto 360 and Qi charging: A match made in nerd heaven

Because we promised we’d do it, this, folks, is the Moto 360 charging on a 2013 Nexus-branded Qi charger. If you’ve got a Qi-compatible wireless charger laying around, you’ve already got yourself a spare Moto 360 charger. And that’s the way it should be.

Thank you, Motorola, for showing how it should be done.

The tech has been around for ages, and every time someone tries to breathe new life into this quick glance data delivery mechanism it seems to gain more and more of a following.
