Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope your hump day is going well - the first hump day of May. As we forge our way through another month, there is no shortage of technology news. Although most of the Blackberry World news has come to a close, there's still some residual stuff to talk about. For example, RIM is close to hiring a new marketing chief. Also, after all the excitement about Blackberry 10, existing customers will be disappointed to know that there are no Blackberry 10 upgrade plans for existing phones. Moving on to a different subject, the world of retail - Target drops eReaders left and right.

Featured: So, we have a couple featured articles for you today. If you're a music streaming, Apple fan then this first one is definitely for you. One of the biggest music platforms if now on iPad, so we have our official Spotify for iPad review. But if you're more an Android kind of guy, fear not. We have something specially tailored for you, and it involves looking at the latest Samsung addition and how it stacks up against what is its self-proclaims biggest competitor - Samsung Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5: pre-release battle.

Google Play, Home LTE, & Pebble: It's time to take a look at the rest of the stories that made headlines today. So there's a big update in the world of Google Play and the way it interacts with billing payment methods - Google Play carrier billing added to music, movies and book.
