Though Samsung claimed the change would come several days ago, the Samsung Apps store has just rebranded itself to Galaxy Apps with an update to the application. Coming with the rebrand to the "Galaxy" name is a slight change in visual styling of the app to darker shades of blue and a few new animations, though the app overall performs much the same as it did before.

Samsung has announced their newest processors, the Exynos ModAP. The Exynos ModAP chipset brings together a quad-core application processor (the AP part) with a LTE-A-capable modem (that'd be the Mod). Built on a 28nm process, the chip's designed to offer speed and power efficiency, all while keeping things cool (hence the ice motif of yesterday's teaser).

This week's sidebar poll: Who is waiting for the Moto 360?

Yes, the Moto 360 looks hawt

Android Wear is what everyone is talking about these past couple of weeks. With good reason — it's new, it's innovative, and it's from Google. With that trifecta of reasons, you'll find Android Wear EveryWear that talks tech. We've been diving into the deep end of the pool (see our LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live reviews) and we really like what we're seeing.

But, every time someone talks about Android Wear, the Moto 360 is in the back of many minds (guilty) being all round and sexy, reminding us that there is still one announced Android Wear device that hasn't yet hit the shelves. Moto is playing the tease masterfully, too. Trickling out videos and short blurbs on social media to whet our appetites for their next product, yet staying (barely) just shy of teasing too much.

We also offered an introduction to IFTTT for those not as familiar with the service — and today we are taking a look at how we can use IFTTT to get a bit more functionality from Google Glass.

Hacking Android Wear

If it exists, we can hack it — and that includes our Android Wear smartwatches

Android on your wrist is still Android. That means it's still Linux, and people will want to do more than the simple user interface provides. We get it. We paid for these devices, and some of us want to do whatever we want with them. Abuse them. Misuse them. Hack them within an inch of their lives. Then put them all back together like we never touched them. Having your sudo sandwich on every device feels good.

Right now (yes, this very instant!), things are just warming up on the Android Wear hacking front. The devices are new, things are a little different, and everyone who has one is tinkering with it to find out just what can be done. But Android Wear is still Android, and mods and ROMs and hacks will (and are already starting to) happen — especially because the bootloaders are easily unlocked. Thanks, Google.

There are a few things we can already talk about, and they are worth talking about!
