Bouncy Hoops: Play some flappy basketball, while waiting for the NBA finals

There’s something truly addicting about simplistic high-score chasers. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but it might have something to do with the fact that you can pick them up right away and start beating records (be it yours, or someone else’s).

Bouncy Hoops is just that – a one-touch game of basketball that will entertain you while you wait for the first Calaviers – Warriors game to start. Its concept is simple – tap on the screen to make the ball go higher, and make sure to land it in the basket. After every made shot, the basket switches sides, but don’t …

The Moto Z2 Play has just gone official and it is the successor of one of the battery champion phones: the Moto Z Play.
And the Moto Z2 Play looks a lot like its predecessor: it has a nearly identical design, (but one that is much thinner and lighter!) the square fingerprint button on the front and the large, round and protruding camera on the back.

Moto Z2 Play retail box surfaces along with new pictures of the phone

Last week, a high resolution image of the Moto Z2 Play was discovered, along with an advertisement indicating that the device will be unveiled on June 1st. Even before the phone has been made official, there are some who are disappointed with Lenovo’s decision to use a 3000mAh battery on the device. That is a 15% decline from the 3510mAh cell used on the original Moto Z Play. The Snapdragon 626 chipset replaces the Snapdragon 625 that powered the Moto Z Play, and should be just as miserly with battery consumption. Despite the lower capacity battery, the Moto Z2 Play should still provide …

Google usually offers three free months of Google Play Music for new subscribers, after which they have to pay $9.99 per month if they want to continue to use the music streaming service.

However, it looks like the Mountain View company wants to enlarge its pool of subscribers by running a promotion on its music service. For a limited time, Google offers new customers four free months of Google Play Music instead of just three.

Nothing else changed regarding the service’s price, so you’ll still have to pay $9.99 after the four-month trial that Google is now …
