- Our own Ron Amadeo has made this amazing chart of Android version distribution over time, and if you don't like big colorful charts, we just can't be friends. Well, unless you're colorblind. In which case, I'm sorry, I take it back. We can be friends.
- Google is bringing carrier billing support for Play Movies, Music, and Books - which is great news for 14 year-old kids without credit cards everywhere.

- Here's us going hands-on with the Galaxy S III.
- Here, you can sign up for email news about release dates and stuff, for which Samsung will use only the greenest triple-recycled press releases.
