Asphalt Xtreme, Samsung goes glossy black


Asphalt Xtreme trades blacktop for mud and ice, but keeps the raucous fun — Gameloft is back with a fresh take on its racer: Asphalt Xtreme. It actually ditches most of the titular roads and finds you instead whipping through mud and dirt and across ice, sand, and water, plus you’ll use monster trucks, mud buggies, pickup trucks, and rally cars instead of the sportier rides seen in Airborne. It’s just as fast, fun, and attractive, but what about that free-to-play model?

Samsung’s ‘new smartphone innovation: Jet Black — Samsung has an idea for goosing Galaxy S7 smartphone sales: make a jet black model. The glossy black version is reportedly a ‘move to compete with Apple’s latest iPhone colour option’ [I prefer ‘more blatant copying’, myself] in an effort to boost sales following the Galaxy Note 7 explode-a-phone debacle.
