Shark Attack 3D Live Wallpaper offers an interesting idea most "Jaws" fans should find cool, but is absolutely loaded with ads. You'll be shocked that developers were able to jam so many ads into a wallpaper app. To get rid of ads the user needs to purchase the full version of this app.
Like most Live wallpapers, Shark Attack 3D Live Wallpaper seems to be a battery drainer, so you might not want to use it 24/7. Even though it is 3D, the shark is rather badly rendered and could look better. When you tap blank … Read more
LG's latest smartphone, the G2, is expected to launch Wednesday at an event in New York City.
The smartphone maker has been preparing for the big debut for more than a month. The new phone, which is the next flagship device for the company, drops the Optimus branding for the new "G premium brand."
While the company hasn't revealed all the details of the new device yet, it has been leaking tidbits of information. And many expect the new device to use a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 13-megapixel rear … Read more
I've been an Xbox 360 owner for years, but I've never once purchased an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Know why? Because I don't play online multiplayer games, and I refuse to pay extra just so I can watch premium services like HBO Go and Netflix (which I'm already paying for, thank you very much). For that same $60, I could buy a Roku box and stream HD video to my heart's content.
Make no mistake, I love the Xbox, love the Kinect, love using it as a Media Center Extender. I just won't pay … Read more

Microsoft's decision to ditch Microsoft Points in favor of real-world currency in Xbox Live might prove to be a costly proposition for consumers.
According to reports out of the U.K., where the feature is currently in beta testing, it costs more to buy content in real-world money than it did with Microsoft Points. Eurogamer, which previously reported on the issue, says that games that cost 1,600 Microsoft points used to set U.K. customers back 13.60 pounds ($20.25). Now, the titles cost 14.99 pounds. Similar price hikes were discovered on 1,200, 800, and … Read more
Aquarium Free Live Wallpaper isn't the best looking live wallpaper, but it does deliver on its name. It would be nice if you were able to choose the fish it uses or customize it in other ways. It would be even nicer if the fish it uses didn't look like goofy cardboard cutouts.
Since this is a live wallpaper, it will drain your battery big time if you're not careful. The wallpaper is a static background of an ocean scene with a few fish that bounce in and out of view. The fish are a typical mix … Read more
