Update 10/28/13 10:30pm PT: The update is rolling out now (thanks, bdh and ohbuckeyeman!):

update 4.3update

Samsung has added details about the upcoming I545VRUEMJ7 software update that will, among other things, make the device compatible with the Galaxy Gear. That means anyone who ran out and purchased the watch before discovering that it was only compatible with the Note 3 can now breathe a bit easier (I'm sure at least one person did that, right?).

Glass-Thumb

There aren't exactly many Google Glass explorers out there, since Google has not put the $1,500 product on sale anywhere, but your chances of spotting a wearer in the wild is about to shoot up. The Glass team announced on Google+ today that over the next few weeks, all explorers will get to invite up to three friends to join the Glass Explorers program. They will still have to buy the glasses, mind you, but this means the device will soon be more accessible than it has ever been.

Plex-Thumb

Plex Sync has been out for over a year now, allowing users to sync multimedia from a computer to their Android devices. Yet there are two primary weaknesses inherent with this setup. One, it requires that users have a host computer running at all times, and two, target mobile devices must have enough room to hold the desired files. Now Plex is looking to alleviate this issue with the introduction of Cloud Sync, a service that will let you sync files with Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud storage providers.

CyanogenMod-Thumb

The Moto X already comes with a Nexus-like user experience, but for many users, that just isn't enough. The looks are great and all, but there are just some features that can only be found buried at the end of custom ROMs like treasure at the end of a rainbow that only power users can see. But CyanogenMod fans who happened to pick up a Moto X on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon, hold up before downloading the recently released nightly builds, as these files are only intended for the unlocked or developer editions.

Feedly-Thumb

Feedly began as a free service, but once the company really started to ramp up its efforts to create the next Google Reader, they introduced a monthly fee to go with it. Users can subscribe to use Feedly for $5 a month, or they can get it for a discounted price of $45 a year. When the company first rolled out this plan, they gave away $99 lifetime subscriptions to the first 5,000 people who claimed them.

What's that smell? No, that isn't grandma in the kitchen, frying up a football team-sized supply of bacon and eggs. That's your smartphone letting you know that it's time to wake up. And those roses you caught a trace of yesterday? That was supposed to be your reminder to pick up an anniversary card and some flowers on the way home from work, but the alarm obviously didn't get the job done.

OfficeSuite-Thumb

There are no shortage of office suites available for Android, but two of the most popular have been Quickoffice and OfficeSuite. The former took a hiatus after Google purchased it last year, and while the new version isn't bad per se, it's not what to used to be. In the meantime, OfficeSuite has continued to improve, and version 7.3 introduces a slew of new features that add an extra layer of polish to what is already a solid app.

DSLR-Thumb

Chainfire's DSLR Controller has been around for a few years now, and while it has yet to leave beta status, it's still your best bet for controlling a Canon EOS camera from an Android phone or tablet without any cables involved. The app continues to inch ever so slowly towards the big 1.0, with today's updating bringing it up to version 0.99.3. The changelog is rather lengthy, but one of the primary changes is support for new auto focus modes and a redesigned way of handling them in the latest EOS models.

GalaxyNote3-Thumb

Sprint customers typically complain about the lackluster data coverage, but they at least have generally been able to make phone calls. Yet many customers who went out and bought the Galaxy Note 3 from the carrier found that even that ability was lacking. They suffered from garbled voices, popping sounds, and all about terrible audio quality leaving them wondering why they bought a phone over a tablet in the first place.

Combatting ghosts in difficult work. The Ghostbusters have been doing it since 1984, and frankly, they're tired. Lately Luigi has tried to pick up the slack, choosing to confront them head-on with his Poltergust 3000, rather than flee like his attention-hogging brother. Yet at the end of the day, there are too many ghosts for one plumber to handle, so Nintendo's taking a break, and Cartoon Network is bringing in the cast from Regular Show to stop a ghostly invasion in the mobile platform shooter, Ghost Toasters.
