Get this morning's tech news while it's hot and fresh

Latest free PlayStation Plus games live

If you wait around for each month's new free games to come live as part of your PlayStation Plus subscription, then today's the day to start downloading. The Walking Dead: Season Two leads the PlayStation 4 offerings, and is flanked by co-op adventure Magicka 2 and roguelike action-RPG Dragon Fin Soup.

The last one is available for PlayStation 3 and Vita, as well. Also for PS3 are a couple of heavy-hitters: role-playing sequel Mass Effect 2 and classic adventure Beyond Good and Evil. And finally, Vita players also get InviZimals. Clear some space and grab these before December rolls around!

Dual-screen phone Kickstarter live

The YotaPhone 2's U.S. release was abruptly cancelled this summer, but there's an alternative on the horizon. The Siam 7x has much the same concept: it's an Android phone with a traditional display on the front, but also an always-on E-ink screen on the back. It's ideal for things like reading books, notifications, and music controls.

Truth be told, the Siam 7x doesn't seem significantly different from the YotaPhone, although it's a bit lower-specced in at least one respect: the specs on the Kickstarter page list a 720p front screen, despite claims of it being a "Full HD" screen elsewhere on the page. Still, if you want a dual-screened phone in the States, this is your best bet: backers can get it next month for a pledge of US$420 (₹27,500). We're told it will be available in Asia come 2016, as well.
