Download The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Wallpapers!

With the premier of Star Wars:  The Last Jedi less than 24 hours away, it is time to get even more hyped up with wallpapers celebrating the movie.  As you may know, earlier this morning OnePlus announced a special edition OnePlus 5T, their latest flagship phone, that was Star Wars themed.  The phone, which functionally is identical to the standard OnePlus 5T, comes with 10 special edition wallpapers.

Well, as you would expect, they are now in the wild.  Engineering folks over at XDA have broken out the wallpapers and made them available.  I, in turn, have uploaded them to the Wallpapers page here on the site for everyone to download.

To save those of you who aren’t overly interested in the wallpapers, I’ve placed them after the break so you don’t have to see them.  But if you do, read on!

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story Now Available For Purchase

The day has finally arrived Star Wars fans.  Rogue One:  A Star Wars Story is now available for purchase in the Google Play Movies & TV Store.  The movie has been available to add to your wishlist since January and was one of the most successful movies of 2016.  The movie is set between the much maligned prequels and A New Hope, the original Star Wars movie, focusing on a band of Rebels who are trying to steal the plans to the Death Star.  If you haven’t seen it yet, rent it and see what you missed.  It has become one of my favorite movies in the franchise.

The movie is $19.99 in HD.  Right now there is not a rental option nor is there a UHD option for the movie.

Google Maps Star Wars Fun For Everyone

Last week Google rolled out what they are calling the Star Wars Experience.  If you go to, you can sign yourself up for either the Light Side or Dark Side and when you do, you get all kinds of cool Star Wars related stuff in your Google Services like Gmail backgrounds, Chromecast backgrounds and there is even an official Star Wars app that gets you the latest news and information on the upcoming movie.  One of those apps that joins in the fun is Google Maps and it is in a subtle but fun way.  If you are on the Dark Side, you will get a Star Destroyer for your home location and for work, you get an Empire Transport Ship.  Geeky?  Absolutely.  Fun?  Absolutely.

By-the-way, if you want to return all your Google stuff back to normal, it is easy to do so.  Just go the Google Star Wars link above, chose Change Sides then move your avatar back to the neutral position between the sides and click Back to Default.  Now everything is back to normal.

To get this overlay on Google Maps to work, you have to first chose a side on the Star Wars link.  Next, within your Google account, if you have not done so already, you need to configure your Home and Work locations.  You can do this from your Android phone by going to Google Maps, opening the menu and tapping My Locations.  Now you are ready for some Star Wars fun!
