SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 3, 2012

Welcome to the weekend, everyone! We're about ready to dive into the weekend ourselves, but not before we deliver the evening wrap-up. As with every other day this week, today gave us some more news about Apple's patent trial with Samsung, with Judge Lucy Koh interviewing each and every one of the jurors to make sure they weren't being swayed by any outside influences.

Judge Koh also said that Apple wasn't allowed to keep its customer survey results a secret, so Samsung did get a bit of news that could help it out as the trial progresses.

No one is expecting the innovative Android-based Ouya game console to be huge in size, but it might be even smaller than you've pictured.

OUYA team assures pre-hacked units on request

The Android-based gaming platform known as OUYA has sent out an update letting both developers and end-users know that they'll not only be given instructions on how to hack their devices, they'll be given alternate software builds as well. This guarantee was initially only made to developers signing up to the development program for the gaming console, but other Kickstarter-friendly users have been assured of the option to root (with instructions) as well.
