Apologies to you faithful readers. I intended to publish this post bright and early, as I normally do, but I slept in…for three days straight. That’s highly unusual for me. And now, for the rest of the news:
- Google’s stock took a beating this week, as somebody mistakenly released numbers. Fortunately, they’ll have the weekend to recover. It looks like the Motorola gamble was less productive than intended, and might create some suspect futures for Android.
- Motorola Droid Bionic users can begin checking for the Ice Cream Sandwich update. I’ve already updated to the new OS, so this isn’t too exciting, and it’s far too delayed. Perhaps that’s why maybe Motorola isn’t performing as well?
- Google announced an event on October 29th at 10 a.m. ET. The event will stream live on YouTube. I’ll watch and report the details.
- CNet gives the rundown on the best 7-inch tablets for under $300. Though I’m not a 7-inch tablet fan, except if you’re reading books or playing games, you can get some good ones for a decent price.
- Samsung keeps teasing that Jelly Bean is coming to its Galaxy S III device “in the coming months.”
- Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney is taking some heat over his “binders of women” remarks. Turns out, Bill Clinton is interested in finding the binders, but if you’re interested in creating your Android version of the binders, check this app out.
- Sometimes I miss having Flash on my ICS and Jelly Bean devices. Here’s a way to keep Adobe Flash, even though Android 4.1 eliminates it.
- And finally, Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team should receive Congressional Medals of Honor, or something for their feats this week. In case you missed it, here’s the epic “perspective view” and actual jump, which aired live on YouTube. The fact it broadcast live on YouTube to 8 million viewers was a testimony to the technological advances in the past 10 years.
