The Daily Slash: January 19 2011

First, it's WAR over on Android Community as a Moto PR representative basically tells ROM developers to STAY AWAY. Then come back to SlashGear and swallow a submarine for science! Over on Android Community, see an Android Explode an Apple Logo, a Nexus S clad man get crushed by a vending machine, and take a close peek at the Android Chinese God of Wealth! Back on SlashGear, check out a couple of fabulous new Samsung clickers: Samsung ST95, ST90 and ST65, and Samsung ST30 and ST6500. Finally check out on Android Community one of the most helpful Android apps of all time, now a reality: MasterCard's "ATM Hunter." All this and MORE on The Daily Slash.
