Review: BodyGuardz Armor for Lumia 1020

I've never been a huge fan of stick-on skins for devices. I've got nothing against them, but I never found much use for them. The ones I had were, usually, the transparent ones that offered minimal protection and ended up turning brown after a couple of weeks of fraternizing with dirt and pocket lint.

The BodyGuardz Armor for the Lumia 1020 brings a little more to the table though. It is a cross between a protective film and decorative skin.

PSA: Alleged 'Lumia Emerald' sightings are most likely a hoax

139

Although many in the United States are still waiting for the Lumia Cyan update, most of the focus in the Windows Phone world is shifting to Lumia Denim. Currently, Lumia Denim comes installed on the Lumia 730, Lumia 735, and Lumia 830, with the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 930 slated to get an over-the-air update first, likely starting in the coming weeks.

This morning, a few fan sites began running articles about 'Lumia Emerald' alleging that it is the next firmware update following Denim. For now, I am calling these sightings a hoax for various reasons.

Microsoft won't have to pay to use Live Tiles after patent suit dismissed

The board has thrown out all SurfCast's 52 claims of infringement that it said Microsoft had made when it released its Live Tiles feature in the Modern user interface, which debuted in Windows Phone 7 and is currently used with Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 8.1 and the upcoming Windows 10.

Nyko Media Remote review – a better, less expensive remote for Xbox One

56

With gaming consoles, first-party accessories are often much nicer than their third-party equivalents. We've all had a poor experience with a third-party controllers at some point, but recent evidence suggests that third-parties are getting better at the accessory game. For example, Power A's recent Xbox One Mini Series controller is a pretty sweet (though not entirely superior) low-priced alternative to official controllers.

It certainly helps a third party's case when the first-party item wasn't really exceptional. The Xbox One Media Remote is a fine accessory, but was designed more for style than substance. Accessory manufacturer Nyko has taken the opposite approach with its own media remote. The Nyko Media Remote for Xbox One is a better remote control than the official model, and it costs ten dollars less to boot.

Turbo Bugs Survival Run, a creepy crawly endless runner game for Windows Phone

29

Turbo Bugs Survival Run is an endless runner game that is available in the Windows Phone Store that plays out from a bug's perspective on things. You duck, dodge and jump to avoid various obstacles to stay one step ahead of a crazed bug destroying kid that is chasing you.

Graphics are nice and have a slight children's book feel about it (not necessarily a bad thing). Game play is challenging enough to keep the game from growing stale too quick and Turbo Bugs is available for low-memory devices.

Turbo Bugs Survival may not be as action packed as Subway Surfers or Temple Run but it does have a certain level of appeal that gamers young and old should find entertaining.
