Users from abroad with the HTC Sensation better start hitting that 'Check update' button - according to this thread on the XDA forums, the Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update just started rolling out.

HTC is being unusually quiet about the update, so it's unclear on whether or not the update is official or an accidental push, but many of the XDA members have already received it. As such, there's no official changelog at the moment, but we do know that the OTA is bringing Android 4.0.3 and Sense 3.6 to the handset.

We've looked at a few different mobile stands in the past, but none quite like the CozyBot stand. You see, the CozyBot was made for specifically for Android users. Why? Because it is an Android. A little plastic Android that holds your phone/tablet/whatever, to be exact.

I spent the last couple of weeks hanging out with the little green guy, and here's what I think of him so far.

Price: This stand is incredibly affordable - it's only £4.99 (about $7.73 USD).

Okay, that's completely not true, but if you're looking for another use for your Android-powered tablet and want to get your taxes done quickly and efficiently while maximizing your refund (who doesn't want that?), then you need to check out Intuit's new Turbo Tax 2011 app.

So here's a twist: instead of Apple just continuously suing Samsung and Motorola over patent violations, the Cupertino company is now ready to negotiate terms that would end several of its ongoing suits with the aforementioned companies. The deal in question? Samsung and Motorola pay Apple between $5 and $15 for each Android handset sold.

So, after all this time in the courtroom, all the preliminary injections, counter-suits, and all the other stuff that we've been talking about for the last several months, Apple is ready to just drop it all and, instead of spend its fortune on "destroying Android," actually make a fortune off of it.

Temple Run could possibly be the most anticipated game to come to Android since... well, ever. We've seen fake after fake after fake hit the Android Market in an attempt to garner downloads from unsuspecting folks looking to grab this iOS hit, and the Temple Run team took to its Facebook page to warn users of these fakes and announce that a real version is on its way. Now, we finally have a release date for the real deal, and it's coming on March 27th.

Many TF101 owners have been [im]patiently waiting on Android 4.0 to hit their devices for at least a week now to no avail. Of course, knowing an update is floating around out there and having to wait for it is even more frustrating than actually waiting for the update to become available, so ASUS UK took to its Facebook page earlier today with a tip on how to get your hands on the update right now from the ASUS support pages for the TF101.
