Since WebMD went live years ago, tons of people hop online with their symptoms and give themselves self-diagnosis’s on what ails them. Although NOT a substitute for a physician’s diagnosis, WebMD is a great utility for people to get an idea if they need more treatment than what they have in the band-aid box at home.
In select Metro areas in the United States, (Queens, Manhattan, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and others) you can now order your favorite take-out and have it delivered to you at home, or to the office, and the service is free of charge. Seamlessweb.com has released an Android version of their software that allows you to place your carry-out order or delivery food order, all from an app on your phone. It even saves your preferences if you tend to order the #5 down at Johnny’s Deli, it will store if you like pastrami, but want them to hold the mayo!
There might be more to the LG G-Slate than we thought. GPS&Co is reporting that the upcoming tablet will come with a 8.9 inch 3D display (without glasses) and 3D recording capability. Of course, we must take this rumor with a grain of salt, but we can always hope and dream of these features coming to the G-Slate.
According to Armdevices.net, they have a tip that someone in Google is confirming that an ARM-powered Google TV is in the works, and will be released “soon.” Whether or not this “tip” is something that can be trusted, it would certainly be awesome to see a sub $100 ARM powered Google TV on the market. It can do nothing but help the platform spread to the masses.
As of right now, T-Mobile is offering every one of their Android phones at $99 or lower, with some available for free. The best deal to be had right now is the G2 (FREE) but that’s only for another day or so.
For those of you who were concerned, T-Mobile’s official follow-up to the Cliq is available today. Customers can grab one for $99 a pop, after a $100 mail-in rebate and two-year service agreement. Although it does have Motorola’s signature fingerprint on it with MOTOBLUR, we still found the device a more than worthy successor to the Cliq name, besting it all around.
T-Mobile has announced the availability of two new applications today, both designed to help put minds at ease. The first, DriveSmart Plus, helps to prevent texting while driving by changing the behavior of some of the phone’s core apps. The second application announced today, FamilyWhere, can locate almost any phone using the T-Mobile network, providing real-time information as to where the users are
Nexus One owners have been (im)patiently waiting for their beloved device to see Android 2.3 since early December. Announced with the Nexus S, Gingerbread was promised in the “coming weeks” for the previous pure Google device. After around a month and a half, those coming weeks have turned into “any day now”.
Samsung has begun a quiet campaign to stir up interest in their Mobile World Congress announcement next month. Promising us that “something big is coming” in February, we’re also told that “evolution is fate” on the Samsung Unpacked site.
Cooking your own custom ROM may seem quite complicated at the first glance, we’ll post a guide about the complicated side soon as well, but this kitchen for the Galaxy S and the Captivate makes your life a lot easier.
Looking for that Kongregate Arcade app we told you about yesterday? You aren’t going to find it in the Android Market today. It appears that Google has pulled the app from the market for violating the developer distribution agreement, but not before downloaded by tens of thousands of users.
For the past week or so, those of us who rely on Google’s podcatcher Listen have been stymied by a bug: subscriptions won’t update, leaving users with no new podcasts to listen to. Quite a few people have reported this same issue in the Google …
Back in November, we heard that game developer PopCap was working on Android versions of several of its most popular games, aiming to release them in “early 2011.” We now have more information:
Bejeweled 2 will debut this week.
Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle and Chuzzle are on track to release in the second quarter of 2011.
They don’t plan to use OpenFeint at this point, but they are “more likely” to use Facebook Connect.
I’m not sure if Q2 counts as “early,” but it will still be in the first half of the year, so I guess we can say they’re generally on target–and it sounds like they will be worth the wait.
In response to recent rumors, Samsung has denied that they are charging carriers for Android updates: “”No. Samsung is not charging carriers for Froyo updates to Galaxy S. We hope to have more detail on status shortly. Promise!” Doesn’t do much to clear up what …
