Check your Market now, because Facebook for Android just got an update! It is not necessarily a huge one, but it does improve and bring a couple of features to the mobile app: Improved News Feed, Pages Support, and Video Upload.
Ebay pushed out an update to its Android app which added a long overdue necessity — Selling! Users now have the ability to sell their phones, from their phones (ponder that). It’s vexing to me that the Ebay app lacked this functionality to begin with, …
There is a new app announced today from Lone Wolf Mobile that is designed to help a person know if they are too impaired from drinking to drive. Called “DUI kNOw! Stand”, the app uses the motion sensors inside your android device to see if you can keep your balance on one leg during a 30 second test.
Recently, MOG and Sonos announced a partnership that allows Sonos owners to subscribe and listen to music provided by huge catalog the MOG has. As God as my witness, when I got my Sonos units, I said to anyone who would listen, “The only thing this kit is missing is MOG integration, when that happens, I will be in audiophile heaven”. Well heaven has come, because I have been using the Sonos/MOG combo for a week or so, and all is right in the world.

Remember that leaked Netflix app from the LG Revolution system dump? If you can remember, the main function (being able to watch content) was not working.

For those of you city dwellers who do not own a vehicle, but would like to have access to one from time to time, Zip Car offers you just that with the ability to rent a vehicle for an hour or a day. I first saw the Zip Car model when visiting home in Boston, and I thought it was a great idea, but it was lacking a mobile way to reserve a vehicle. Oh sure, if you own an iPhone, you could use the app there, but since I like having control of the things I own, I of course use Android. Well, Zip Car heard the feedback of no mobile app on the Android platform, and have released a beta app for use with Google’s mobile OS.
Before I begin my gushing discourse of the love I have for Sonos and it’s newly minted Android controller app, I have to diclose the fact that Sonos sent me a review unit to use, of which that I do not have to return to them. So simply put, I have to disclose that they gave me free stuff. That being said, they did not need to buy my love whatsoever, because using Sonos for me is like sitting a fat man down to a 15 course meal, with some magic thrown on top that makes it feel like he never gets full.
