  1. Review: Broken Age Is a Better Kind of Boy-Meets-Girl Story

    It’s hard to pick up a game months after you last played it and know what the heck is going on. Most people would rather start over than try to figure out what they were supposed to do or where they had to go next. With Broken Age, players didn’t have a choice. The adventure game debuted in January 2014 as Part 1 of 2, so those who started playing it then (including me) had to sit back for over a year before we could see the second half of the story. The wait was definitely worth it.

  3. NASA Has a Free Pack of Official Mission Sound Clip Ringtones to Make Your Phone Less Boring

    Your phone is go for liftoff.

    I was a firm believer that my phone should never ever make any sounds in favor of vibration-only right up until the very second I discovered that NASA has a repository of short sound clips from their space missions in both mp3 and iPhone ringtone formats. Hey, maybe the short reminders of humanity's proudest achievements will put me in a good enough mood to actually answer my phone.

  4. No, Your Phone Doesn’t Have a Virus; Those App Store Redirects Come From Difficult-to-Stop Ads

    We're sorry. We're so sorry.

    We here at The Mary Sue can sympathize with annoying ad behavior from autoplaying, unmuted video to redirecting users to other sites entirely. Mobile browser users with Android and iOS devices have been getting app store redirects for a long time, and though the problem is difficult to stop, it isn't cause for concern—just annoyance.

  7. Mom Invents App to Brick Kids’ Phones Until They Call Their Parents Back

    Her kids have been mysteriously uninvited to all slumber parties.

    Tech-savvy parent Sharon Standifird was tired of her teenage children not answering or returning her calls to their cell phones, so she created an app that allows her to remotely brick their phones until they call her back. Apparently if she's going to wish her kids would just call her back, she's going to make sure all other kids are going to wish they would've, too.

  11. A Malware Protection “Placebo” App Made $40,000 by Doing Nothing

    5/5 stars. Would get fooled by again.

    The placebo effect is great, because not only does it psychologically fix things from time to time, but it also tricks you into fun things like believing your car goes faster when you put a bunch of cool stickers on it. It also makes people a bunch of money when they sell an app that does nothing but tell people it's preventing malware.

    It's a great day for BlackBerry users, as their beloved BBM proprietary messaging service has finally gone cross-platform. We tried to take the iOS and Android versions for a spin, but demand for accounts on the service is supposedly so high that there's a virtual line. Yeah, we were surprised, too.
