A mere seven months ago, we saw the launch of Google’s Play Store gift cards, a much wished-for addition to the store front that made gifting the store’s digital content almost as easy as it should be. Unfortunately for international users, though, the cards were only destined for the US at launch. When “redeem pages” popped up in the UK’s online and device-based stores in mid-December, many thought the cards would hit retail stores in time for the holidays. Alas, the holidays came and went with nary a peep from Goog on the subject.
Now, however, we seem to have another promising development that should return hope to UK Play patrons – Google has updated its “Gift cards & Google Play balance” help files with UK-specific information.

Gamers around the world are excited for the holidays following Sony’s (SNE) recent PlayStation 4 unveiling, but not everyone will want to shell out an estimated $500-$600 on the company’s new console. As such, budget-minded gamers who aren’t afraid to adopt a current-generation system on the eve of a new launch will be happy to know that PlayStation 3 pricing is likely about to plummet. “The PS3 was officially announced by Sony at E3 in May of 2005. Prior to its announcement, deals for the PlayStation 2 had been averaging $160,” Louis Ramirez of deal aggregation site Dealnews wrote in a recent post on the company’s blog. “After the PS3′s announcement, the PS2 dropped to an all-time low of $129, or 56%
If you live in the south or the Great Plains, you know the feeling of going to bed without knowing if your house will be there in the morning. Tornado is the latest in the American Red Cross’s series of disaster relief apps, and since tornadoes are by their very nature sudden and unpredictable, it’s a welcome addition to the Play Store. The app ties into the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s alert system, and emits an alarm when your area (or any area you designate) receives a tornado warning. There’s also an all-clear signal when the danger has passed.
Like the previous disaster relief apps, there’s also a handy “I’m Safe” button that will send a pre-recorded message to your friends and family, plus a constantly-updated list of local shelters.

iFixit on Thursday published a list of the best and worst tablets based on their respective repairability scores. While no slate scored a perfect 10, the company found that the Dell (DELL) XPS 10 was the easiest tablet to repair thanks to its accessible case, color-coded screws and labeled cables. At the bottom of the list was Microsoft’s (MSFT) Surface Pro and Apple’s (AAPL) iPad and iPad mini. The Surface Pro scored a 1 out of 10 and was said to be difficult to open without shearing the display cables, while the iPad scored a 2 out of 10 for its excessive amounts of adhesive. The Surface RT didn’t fare much better and scored a mere 4 out of 10,

One of the Internet’s founding fathers envisions a bright future that one day may involve communicating with animals and even aliens using the Web. During a speech given at the annual TED conference, Internet pioneer Vint Cerf described how technology can be used to communicate with other species, explaining that the Internet isn’t just a way of connecting machines but a way for people to interact. “Now what’s important about what these people are doing is that they’re beginning to learn how to communicate with species that are not us — but share a common sensory environment,” he said about the other event speakers. “We’re beginning to explore what it means to communicate with something that isn’t just another person.” Cerf noted that developments
