Samsung has just announced the launch of its own radio service called Milk Music. This will be free for owners of select Galaxy devices and is currently available for download from the Google Play Store. Although the company claims this service will be ad free, the Play Store listing mentions that the ad free version is available only for a limited period. This means the app could be bombarded with advertisements in the coming months.

You can now create radio stations based on your favorite playlists in Google Play Music for Android. The feature has been added to the Play Music app in a new release rolling out this week.
The Plinth isn’t just a super-compact tablet stand — it’s an amusing party trick.
Slide the sleek accessory out of your pocket or purse and into the hands of a friend and you’ll likely be met with a quizzical stare as they try to figure out what, exactly, the flat plastic object is. Thin, feather-light and somewhat curiously shaped, the Plinth — which currently exists only as a 3-D prototype, although if you’re quick you can get in on the Kickstarter campaign — looks something like a Chinese puzzle box or a Transformer in stealth mode.
It’s obviously composed of multiple parts that fit together seamlessly, and a couple of buttons look like they might do something. But let a friend fondle the plastic object, and they’ll likely fiddle with it for a while before they discover the Plinth’s awesome secret.
Is your Galaxy Note 3 stuck at the startup logo after a manual Android 4.4.2 KitKat upgrade went wrong in Odin? Don’t worry; you almost certainly haven’t bricked it, and it can still be saved. I had the same problem myself this week, so I thought I’d put together a little guide on how to fix it.
Asus has reportedly postponed the launch of its new, dual-booting Android+Windows notebook following pressure from Google. The Transformer Book Duet TD300, which was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas back in January, was scheduled to go on sale in March — but it may not go on sale at all.
Like the Moto X, the Nexus 5 also has a dedicated low power audio processor for always-on “Ok, Google Now” functionality. However, the feature is only partially implemented and works only on the home screen. Many users had hoped that third party apps or custom kernels would enable this feature even when the device is sleeping but the closed source nature of the dedicated audio processor acted as a big roadblock.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced its new accessory lineup for the upcoming Galaxy S5 yet, but they’re already available to pre-order from smartphone and accessory retailer MobileFun. The lineup includes a protective hard shell, S View covers with and without wireless charging, and Flip Wallet covers — all of which can be seen in the gallery below.
LG’s super creepy G Flex commercial, which was uploaded to YouTube just this Thursday, has now been pulled without explanation. The two-minute video certainly got people talking went it went live — but it wasn’t LG’s smartphone that was on their minds.
Opera might not be as popular among Android users as Chrome but the browser definitely gets many things right compared to the latter. Today, the Opera team has released a major v20 update to their browser with some major under the hood improvements and changes.
Samsung unveiled its ultra-portable Galaxy Tab 3 variant, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, back in April, 2013, and two months later the device was available in the U.K. from several retailers for $199. However, if you haven’t had the opportunity to pick one up before now, you may be pleased to hear that Walmart, the popular independent online retailer, is currently offering the device with an $20 reduction.
