Google Play Movies expands to Jamaica, Trinidad and 10+ more Countries

Many countries and regions of the world especially the Caribbean is often region-locked from many online services available to larger more affluent countries. Also, some of the few times countries like Jamaica, Trinidad and Antigua and Barbuda are included we are stuck with watered down selections (Netflix) or grouped together with Latin America because apparently all of the Caribbean speaks Spanish. A small change has happened today with the news that Google has expanded its Google Play Movie service to 27 new countries. On that list we'll now find Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua and Barbuda and even our central American neighbors Belize. Good news in my eyes and although the selection of movie titles on Google's service is paltry I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and ...

Deer Hunter 2014 is a very addictive and fun to play mobile game that recently became available on Android. It is aimed at fans of first person shooters and hunting simulators and provides bite sized pieces of enjoyment for anyone with an Android phone capable of running the game.

Android Market re-branded Google Play in a effort to better showcase digital content

Google has re-branded Android Market in it's latest effort to attract a bigger piece of the digital pie. With services like Google Music, Google Books etc it seemed that the big G was splinttered and unorganized agaist the likes of iTunes and Amazon who have more streamlined and accessible systems. Google Play is (hopefully) the fix for that and will cover Google's music, books, movies, apps and gaming offerings under one umbrella and recognizable name. Google is still playing catchup however but with Android devices being so popular all over the world it may be a stroke of genius. Starting today, Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore will become part of Google Play. On your Android phone or tablet, we’ll be upgrading the Android Market app to the Google Play Store ...
