The wide range of Sonic games from Sega are widely popular among users of the 90s. And Sega’s decision to bring these apps to the Play Store has helped them win plenty of more fans. But one complaint with these games has been the pricing. So to make things a little easier on the customers, Sega has decided to slash the pricing of seven Sonic titles on the Play Store. These seven games are now priced at just $0.99 while the usual pricing extends up to $2.99.

Keeping that in mind, the discounts are very welcome, although it’s still not completely free. We’re not sure how long this promotion will last, so make sure you take full advantage of it before Sega shuts down the deal. You can find the seven games that are selling for $0.99 in the list below:

So which one of the aforementioned games are you picking up? Let us know in the comments box below.

CES 2013: Chevrolet Integrating Apple’s Voice Assistant Siri in Chevy Sonic and Spark Vehicles

chevspark2013

Have you ever wished you had a voice assistant like Siri integrated in your vehicle? Well, it seems that Chevrolet is integrating Apple’s voice assistant Siri into their 2013 Chevy Sonic and Spark vehicles via a Bluetooth connection. Holding down a control on the steering wheel will activate Siri and allow you to use the voice assistant as you usually would eliminating the need to pick up the smartphone while driving. Essentially anything with Siri can be done that you would do without the Bluetooth connection except browse web pages, as Chevrolet does not want you picking up the smartphone while driving. If you were to ask Siri, “I need information on World War 2,” it will usually refer you to a Wikipedia page to browse. While the iPhone is connected to the vehicle, Siri will instead say “To ensure your safety, your vehicle will not permit me to help you with that right now.”

Now if we could just get Google Now integration in our cars!
