Walt Disney Studios and Paramount Pictures have reached an Indiana Jones agreement, Deadline reported Friday. Disney now has marketing distribution rights to future films in the famous (and lucrative) franchise, while Paramount will retain distribution for the first four movies.
According to an anonymous Google employee cited within a report on The Information (subscription required), developers at Google are prepping a new set-top box, possibly called Nexus TV, that’s powered by Android. According to the report, the device will play streaming video applications such as YouTube, Netflix and Hulu Plus as well as run a selection of video games.
This information is fairly identical to a report released by the Wall Street Journal several months ago mentioning that Google was working on a set-top box for the living room that included a video camera and motion controller. One of the most interesting features on the device was the ability to run Google Hangouts, potentially an inexpensive way for small and large businesses to video conference easily and allowing families to communicate over long distances with video chat.
Just yesterday, we reviewed Vuze Remote by Azereus that allows users of the popular Vuze BitTorrent client to remotely control the torrent downloads on their PC from their Android device. But what if you don’t want to use your Android phone or tablet to merely control the torrents that are actually being downloaded on your PC, but instead want to download them to your Android device itself? While there are already plenty of options available for the purpose, such as our previously reviewed aTorrent, as well as the official Android app of uTorrent. Though if you are a loyal Vuze user and want to use the same on your Android phone or tablet, you’ll be happy to know that the developers have recently released their full torrent client for the platform as well. Vuze Torrent Downloader might not be the most feature-rich Torrent client available on Google’s OS, but it gets the job done.
Upon launch, you’ll land on a rather empty-looking interface, but that is to be expected since you haven’t added any torrents yet. To do that, tap the search button in the bottom bar, enter your desired keywords and hit the Search button to find torrents. Unfortunately, the app doesn’t include a built-in way of looking for torrents, and you will be simply taken to your browser with a Google search for your query, with the term ‘torrent’ added to it. Once you find a torrent online, download it just the way you would download any other file, and you’ll be able to add it to Vuze. To start downloading a torrent in Vuze from its torrent file, magnet link or hash, tap the + button in the bottom bar.
Following the current season of the dance/gun/dinosaur-themed Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Toei will launch its 38th Super Sentai series, Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger. It’s all about trains! Train track helmets, railroad crossing chest motifs, a giant combined train mech known as the TokkyuOh, electronic train ticket device morphers called Tokkyu Chargers — this show looks like it’s going to be the right kind off the rails.
