Wow, +Google. That's rough.
If you can’t find the +Android News by Phandroid on the Google Play Store it’s because it’s been banned by Google.

We received a very general automated e-mail about being removed, attempted to learn how we were in violation so that we could fix it, and received a followup e-mail bluntly confirming our ban: “We have reviewed your appeal and will not be reinstating your app. This decision is final and we will not be responding to any additional emails regarding this removal.”

Wow… really? Any help +Chris Yerga +Sundar Pichai +Google Play?

Would appreciate a +1/Share to help attract the right eyes!

Still a great game today!

Indeed, although the later "DX" release perfected it. The ability to pause the game, switch of the GBC, switch it back on and instantly unpause just blew my mind. Standby modes today just cant compete with that!

I still don't like graphical emojis.  I just prefer text.

The number of Samsung tablets I would have ever recommended buying is still smaller than the number of tablets Samsung has announced this year.

More are supposedly coming later this week.

Firehose method: engage. 
Samsung tablets: more isn’t always better
Samsung tablets are a dime a dozen, and most of them are as forgettable as the last. Read why Samsung would be better off making fewer, better tablets.

As a tech enthusiast I can't even keep up with Sammy's tablet line. And most of them aren't worth their money.
