Verizon plans to wrap 4G LTE rollout in mid-2013

Verizon anticipates that it will blanket the nation with 4G LTE coverage by the middle of next year, roughly six months faster than initially expected.

Google Earth 1.1 Adds Layer to Explore Oceans

An updated version of Google Earth (1.1) hit the Android Market this morning, adding a key component – oceans. And it’s about time. How can Google look themselves in the mirror and call it “Earth” if they omit nearly 3/4 of the planet? All kidding aside, the new version is something special in that it lets users dive deep under the sea and check out videos and pictures of the terrain where Poseidon lays his head.

    Only androidguys would mix up “2013” and “3013”.

    Zero proofreading done on this site.

    And then fix it… and then FORGET to fix the link itself anyway:
