Ever fantasized about being a goat? Of course you haven’t. But you’d be surprised by just how entertaining it can be — especially when that goat is hellbent on destroying everything and near indestructible. With Goat Simulator now available on Android and iOS, that’s exactly what you can be — while at work, in the library, at a coffee shop, or just at home.

Google’s rumored Android Silver program, which was expected to deliver high-end devices with premium designs, has reportedly been put on hold following the departure of Nikesh Arora, one of the project’s leads. Sources say the search giant has now doubled down on its Android One program instead.

Motorola has given those in the U.K. the opportunity to customize their new Moto X through Moto Maker before the handset goes on sale in the coming weeks. When you’ve chosen a design you’re happy with, you can save it and Motorola will let you know as soon as it’s available to order.

I may be in the minority here, but when I think of the type of TV show I’d picture Samsung as, my mind goes to scandalous political thriller House of Cards well before it does to Glee.

Which is, of course, why it makes absolute sense that Samsung is currently in the process of creating its own Glee-style “Musicom” (that’s a sitcom meets musical) centered around the lives of two fictitious young employees. Can’t you practically hear the songs already?

Called Best Future, the series will follow male and female flatmates, and is designed to portray Samsung as the kind of trendy-yet-lovable company people in their twenties and thirties would just love to work for.

A couple of months ago, Google gave the Play Store app for Android a partial Material touch. With the impending release of Android L, the company is now working on giving the Play Store app a full Material Design makeover, if the latest screenshots from Android Police are to be believed.
