Tinkerers and modders who desire the Galaxy S5 for its hardware but with very little interest in Samsung's bloatware now have a fighting chance. The latest 2.7 version of the Team Win Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is now available for Galaxy S5 devices of the "klte" variant. TWRP rose through the ranks at a time when Clockwork Recovery or CWM was seemingly stagnating in terms of new features, primary among them being the lack of a touch-based interface
Apple has released a new iPhone 5s ad called "Powerful". It's set to the song Gigantic by the Pixies, the ad highlights the iPhone 5s' utility with several kinds of musical instruments and vocals, as a connected controller for lighting, gaming, and rocket launching, for slow motion video, videography, live translation, blood pressure measurement, and finishes with the line — "You're more powerful than you think".

With just about 6 days more to go before its latest Humble Mobile Bundle 5 campaign ends, Humble Bundle is unsurprisingly expanding the catalog with three more titles. Included in this list is the very first R-Type, cutesy Paper Monsters, and a wacky Enviro-Bear 2010. Paper Monsters is a traditional 2D platformer reminiscent of games like Mario and its ilk
Apple recently launched a new, environmentally focused video called " Better " and what's more — it was narrated by their CEO, Tim Cook .
