Burn Rubber On Your Mobile Device With Need For Speed: No Limits

Electronic Arts has announced a new Need for Speed game specially designed for mobile devices. Need for Speed: No Limits is coming to iOS and Android devices in 2015.

At present, we know that No Limits is being developed by Firemonkeys Studios (the team that handles the Need for Speed series’ mobile ports) and that Electronic Arts has paired in some capacity with rally driver Ken Block for the release of the game. Block is the man behind the wheel of the Gymkhana Seven video that went viral earlier this week.

The teaser trailer below shows a little bit of in-game footage, but a blog post from the developer promises more information about the game in the coming weeks.

You Can Now Control Hulu Plus Console Apps With Your Mobile Device

If you're using your PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One to watch television content through Hulu Plus, you've got a slick new interface option at your fingertips.

A new Hulu plus feature now lets you "cast" Hulu Plus streaming content from your phone to one of the compatible consoles (for some reason, Xbox 360 is not supported). As long as you're logged in to the same Hulu Plus account on your iOS or Android device and your console, you just have to hit an icon to instantly show what you're watching on your handheld device to your television. It's definitely preferable to the existing Hulu Plus console interfaces, and will allow for quicker selection and searching of content. Similar functionality has already been used for the Hulu Plus app on Google's Chromecast.

Our Take:
This is a great feature, and I hope more entertainment apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime adopt similar tech. However, what's up with leaving Xbox 360 owners in the cold?
