Some days you just want to sit back, relax, unwind and have a nice stress-free couple of minutes: just you and your phone. Well, okay, maybe that’s not really the case. Let’s say that sometimes you just want to play a fun little game that requires somewhere between zero thought and absolutely no thought at all. If that’s the case, then you might want to give Liquid Entertainment’s Paper Galaxy a look.

I admit it, I have a bit of a problem when it comes to “match three” games - I just can't seem to avoid at least giving them a chance. There are a fortunate few that are able to bring just enough of a difference to the table to actually make them interesting. They come in role-playing types, building types and even old-school types, each uniquely entertaining in its own way. I also have to admit that when I first saw Chip Chain show up in the Play Store I was not all that convinced that it would be my cup of tea but decided that I would go ahead and give it a go.

Google Drive got a major overhaul on Wednesday, adding some features borrowed from Google+ as well as the ability to scan documents as PDF files and download copies of your files onto your device. I kicked the tires on the updated app on the Droid DNA, the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7, and I'm only too happy to share the results (and accompanying screenshots) with you.

Thor, he of the witty one-liners, the wielder of Mjolnir, the bane of Ragnarok, is subject of today’s not quite tower defense but heavily action-oriented game Thor: Lord Of Storms. The developers over at Animoca have recently added the Norse-themed action game to its stable of heavily, decidedly less manly, games such as “Star Girl” and series of “Pretty Pet” games. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather be playing a kick-butt Thor game as opposed to, say, Pretty Pet Salon. But that’s just me.

We are going through different lengths to protect our devices, depending on a variety of factors, such as where we use them, how old they are, and how durable they are out of the box. Some use screen protectors, simple cases, elaborate cases, sleeves, and/or depend on insurance and/or warranty replacements. I tend to dabble between many of these options, and for your benefit I have recently tested a truly elaborate case: the Otterbox Defender case for the Nexus 7.

What feature mattersmost to you when purchasing a case for your device? Is it colors, protection, design, brand, or something else? Personally, I see cases in three categories: light, medium, and maximum protection because I believe protection is the most important “feature” when looking at cases. When it comes to maximum protection cases, you usually have to sacrifice on design and cosmetics. Has Ballistic struck an effective balance between protection and design?

The Nexus 4's Wireless Charger took a while to get here and when it did, it brought along a hefty price tag. Reminiscent of Palm's Touchstone wireless charger, former Palm VP of user experience Matias Duarte ( now Android's director of user interface), brings his idea to Google.
