The Daily Slash: May 20th 2010

Only 11 more days left in the month, and today marked a pretty loud, and impressive, announcement from Google. Of course, there's just 11 more days in the month, and that means June's getting closer and closer. And we all know what's coming in June. Tonight though, in typical Daily Slash fashion, we'll focus on what else happened out there today. First up, in the Best of R3, we've got a report card with some pretty impressive statistics, and Versace has a new phone out (it's "unique"). And then in the Dredge 'Net, Steve Jobs isn't a fan of WebM, the white iPhone HD looks very sleek when it's rendered, and it looks like the AT&T Pre Plus has been given an unlock.

Welcome to the most recent hump day edition of the Daily Slash. It's the middle of the week and we're sure you're pining to get your feet firmly planted to the end of the week, but until we get there, at least you've got us. Tonight's edition is pretty lengthy, at least in one part, but we promise it's worth it. First up, in the Best of R3, we've got a whole laundry list of new devices from Dell, then iPads being used in the medical field, and finally a huge piece of bad news for the HTC Hero. And then in the dredge 'net, we've got Android running on the iPhone, a washing machine, and then Microsoft pitching some live TV ideas.
