SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: January 20 2011

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? It seems as though iPhone iOS 4.3 has multitouch gestures – oh and iPad 2? February 9, perhaps. All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up.
