You may remember that back at CES 2014 in January, we got a live demo of Brothers In Arms 3: Sons of War from the folks at Gameloft. At the time, the World War II-themed game was supposed to be released later that quarter. That date came and went with no such launch but this week Gameloft has confirmed that Brothers In Arms 3 will finally be released later in December for Android and other platforms.
Spotify appears to be getting into the festive spirit with the holidays just around the corner. The popular music streaming service is offering consumers in both the UK and US special promotions on its premium subscription to tempt them into taking out new accounts for 2015.

If you have ever found yourself in the position of wanting to keep a specific piece of content at the top of your Google+ profile page, then this new functionality is for you.

Based on information received by the folks over at SamMobile, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S5 has started receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop. According to their post, the OTA to version G900FXXU1BNL2 has begun to hit the SM-G900F model in Poland and may hit other European countries soon.
Wire is the latest new-chat-service-to-end-all-others of the month. It's very nicely designed (especially for a v1 release), is backed by one of the co-founders from Skype and basically is this week's media darling. And for good reason — it's a compelling app that's quickly captured the interest of those of us who get bored with app way too quickly. Is it the next Skype? Or even a WhatsApp?
