First, watch your ports! Turns out there's a way for people to hack the crap out of your computer just by attaching their Android to it. Next take a ride on the confirmation train with both T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G and Vibrant 4G, and take a peek at some possible specs on the Samsung’s Galaxy S2, too. Here on SlashGear take a peek at the lovely brand new Jawbone ERA in a high-res review. Next go ahead and take that big jump with Google Voice as they introduce mobile number porting. Remember when LoveFilm bought Amazon Europe's DVD rental service? Now Amazon is buying LoveFilm - how about that? Remember how big A likes to add features to their OS?

After that, it's games, music, and more games on SlashGear - see if you can find the tags!
Watch out for the law, it's gonna git ya! A fellow who believes he and his brothers and sisters united in Android have been wronged by T-Mobile and Samsung - and what to Americans do when we're wronged? File a class action lawsuit of course! On a different side of the world, the Android community is getting along a little better - see Japan build a human-sized android with an Android brain - and light-up eyes! Over on SlashGear we're popping popcorn with lasers, feelin pretty healthy hosting a game of Call of Duty on a medical server, and rocking relatively hard with the amount of music-related posts we've got up - see if you can spot em!
