Mitt Romney official iPhone app touts “Amercia”

First of all, kudos to Mitt Romney and his campaign for offering an official iPhone app to solicit micro donations and help spread the word. But we can't say kudos to the fact that the app contains a pretty grave spelling mistake. The official iPhone app for Romney supporters gives users a selection of background images they can use for their phone.

Sony to reveal PS3, Vita ebook platform

Sony to reveal PS3, Vita ebook platform

If you like the idea of ebooks, but hate the fact that you can't read them from 10 feet away on the living room sofa, Sony might have the solution to your problems. Okay, we're exaggerating a bit. There's a rumor that Sony is working on a digital books section to the PlayStation Store, but it is hardly going to try to be a competitor to the Kindle, iBooks, or Nook.

Netflix promises to delete rental history after a year

Netflix promises to delete rental history after a year

Netflix cares about your privacy and has agreed that if you unsubscribe from the site, any rental activity on your account that is more than a year old will no longer be tied to you, meaning no one - not even Netflix - will be able to look back at your past movie choices, and after you've been gone from Netflix for a year there will be no way to pull any rental data. Okay, the latter part of that is true, but Netflix doesn't care about your privacy.

GSM Galaxy Nexus gets docks in the Google Play Store

GSM Galaxy Nexus gets docks in the Google Play Store

When Google released the Galaxy Nexus on the Play Store for a wallet-tempting $399, it seemed like they were tired of waiting for the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile to get their own versions of the developer phone out the door. Similarly, Verizon customers have been waiting about six months for first-party accessories for the popular phone. Verizon owners will have to keep waiting, but those who bought the GSM phone in the US can now deck it out with various docks.

Meet the Nexus tablet (before Google announces it)

Meet the Nexus tablet (before Google announces it)

This week we've once again had an above-average amount of tips being pointed directly at the idea that the next Nexus device that will be released by Google will also be made by ASUS. This device will be a tablet, as confirmed by Google's Eric Schmidt back in January with his "six month window" comment. This device will certainly be an example for Google's next big operating system update, will more than likely have a 7-inch display, and it will cost users just $149, per an ASUS tip as well as NVIDIA's own Kai Strategy which takes their quad-core Tegra 3 processor down below $200 USD.

Corning announces Galaxy S III carrying Gorilla Glass 2

It appears that the rumors are true, ladies and gentlemen, and the Galaxy S III from Samsung is amongst the first in the world to tote the next-generation Corning Gorilla Glass 2 on its face. This next-level glass is a level above the world's most notoriously strong mobile-minded display front and will stop even the most hardened pockets full of loose change and keys - if you do so dare to try.

Galaxy S III LTE comes to Canada with Snapdragon inside

Galaxy S III LTE comes to Canada with Snapdragon inside

It's a whole new ballgame up above the USA as Canadian carriers across the board announce their release of the Samsung Galaxy S III complete with a Qualcomm processor, LTE speed, and 2GB of RAM. This variation of the GALAXY S III will have options for either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage while two variations on those models will exist with either 4G LTE or HSPA+ 42 data connections. This device will still essentially be the same international Samsung Galaxy S III we reviewed this past week by all outward and surface appearances, but the guts make this a whole different beast!
