SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: February 17, 2012

We did it, everyone. We made it to the end of yet another work week. And we know exactly what you want to do on a Friday night - catch up on all of today's tech news, right? Besides, there's always time to party later. Like the party Apple is sure to have when it hits 25 billion App Store downloads, a milestone that is very quickly approaching. And speaking of things in the future, Nevada has an eye on the future and has just approved self-driving cars in the state. So far it's basically just a new law for Google to play around.

Featured: So here's an interesting article for anyone who has ever shopped at Target; did you know that even though Target doesn't have one of those customer loyalty card things, it still knows who you are and tracks your purchases? Yep, it's true. Okay, so if you're looking for something less Big Brother-esque, we also have a couple iPhone app reviews - there's this review of Dash Race, and also this look at WinZip for iOS. You know, since unzipping files on your iPhone is always an issue.

Mobile: So the Mobile World Congress is coming soon, and we've got all sorts of news in preparation for that - like, Googld Pod teased for MWC 2012 revival, PlayBook OS 2.0 launch date, and HTC Android 4.0 ICS dates dropped for North America. In addition, we have some iPad 3 news: iPad 3 Retina Display allegedly confirmed, and iPad 3 buyers don't care about price. Of course they don't.
