While the bulk of us have been enjoying Google+ from our personal accounts for a few months now, those who exclusively use Google Apps (GApps) have been left in the dark... until today. Google+ is now open to all GApps users, and it even brings some new features for some users.

On Android, there are plenty of ways to monitor your processor, battery, RAM usage, etc. However, there is really no way to monitor said information while continuing to do other tasks, since Android only allows one window in the foreground at a time. That's where Cool Tool, a simple resource monitoring app, comes into play.

Cool Tool is different than other resource monitors on Android because it has an option to stay on top of other windows or the notification bar, allowing you to constantly monitor your hardware statistics.

When Motorola announced the Droid 3, there was a lot of negative energy directed at the device for its lack of an LTE radio. Of course, it was still better than its predecessors in every way -- larger, more vibrant screen, better keyboard, less intrusive Blur -- it was an all around nice piece of kit. Moving forward, Moto knew that it had to one-up the D3 with the newest iteration of the iconic Droid series, and, according to these leaked images, it looks to have hit that nail on the head with the Droid 4.

It's a pretty well known fact that, when trying to lose weight, you have to create a caloric deficit -- for every 3500 calories burned, that's one pound of weight lost. Thus, it takes a combination of diet and exercise to create said deficit. However, it is exceedingly difficult to keep track of your caloric intake, as well as calculate the calories burned for various activities. If you're serious about getting in shape, though, there is a solution: using an automatic body monitoring system like BodyMedia's FIT Armband.

We heard that Sony was looking to buy Ericsson's half of Sony Ericsson earlier this month, and now that deal has come to fruition. Sony will purchase Ericsson's part of the joint effort that has been over a decade in the making for €1.05 billion cash. Aside from the obvious, the deal will also land Sony a cross-licensing agreement that includes access to a few "essential patent families relating to wireless handset technology."

The purchase will allow Sony to better streamline all of its current markets, including game consoles, smartphones, tablets, computers, and more into one unified subset of devices.

Out of all the awesome accessories for smartphones on the market, Capta has to be one of the coolest I've seen in a while. It's a multi-functional accessory that works as a tripod mount/desktop stand, bringing some incredibly useful functionality to your device. Just take a look for yourself:

I know what you're thinking: how does it stick?! Yeah, I wondered the same thing after watching the video for the first time.

In what seems to be its biggest update since the initial release, the Winamp team just pushed some pretty major changes to Winamp for Android. For starters, this update now allows Mac users to sync with Winamp -- something that has previously been missing. Aside from that, there is now a pro version available, offering enough new features to easily justify the $5 pricetag:

  • 10-band graphic equalizer
  • A customizable home screen
  • The ability to navigate or browse your music by Folders
  • Crossfade between tracks
  • Gapless playback
  • Support for FLAC playback in Browse by Folders nav (lossless audio playback)
  • Replay Gain Support (configurable in Settings menu)
  • Personalized SHOUTcast station recommendations (based on music in your Android device)
  • The ability to play any streaming audio URL in SHOUTcast (supported formats only)
  • Ad Free

In an effort to help advance computer vision on mobile devices, Qualcomm has released the first mobile-optimized CV library, aptly named FastCV. While this news may not be groundbreaking for end-users, it's a pretty big deal for developers, as this library can be used in mobile development to help improve things like face detection and recognition, text tracking and recognition, gesture recognition, as well as open a whole new world for augmented reality applications.

There's no doubt that Fandango is one of the best apps for finding out what movies are playing in the local theatre, reading reviews, watching trailers, and even buying tickets. If you're just not into watching trailers or checking out movie details on you phone, though, then you should check out Fandango's newest app: Fandango Movies for Tablets.

Like you would expect, Fandango for tablets makes good use of the much larger screen and offers all the same features that you're already accustomed to using on the phone version.

Lookout, one of my favorite mobile security apps, received an update today that brings a feature I've wanted since I got my Tab 10.1: tablet support (which, in this case, also includes support for ICS devices). Aside from the malware scanner and backup functionality, one of the most alluring features of Lookout is its find-my-device capability -- a highly useful feature if your device is ever lost or stolen, and a must-have on any tablet.
