Cox TV Connect app update adds grid view, teething problems

The Cox TV Connect app (Free, App Store) has been recently updated with some interface changes to help with program browsing.

Google Maps gets pseudo 8-bit mode for April Fools

While Electronista and MacNN intend to keep April Fools' reporting to a minimum, Google has offered a rarity by making one of the first gags for the year and also making it truly interactive and accessible. A one-off Quest mode in Google Maps turns the navigation tool into its "NES" version. Most features continue to work, but it now has a Legend of Zelda-style overhead map and renders Street View in an 8-bit color palette like the now 27-year-old Nintendo console.
