We all knew it was coming. StraightTalk Wireless announced that it was getting the GSIII LTE last month, so it was only a matter of time before its sister company Net10 did the same. Well, that time has come and Net10 users can now get The Next Big Thing Before The Current Next Big Thing for a cool $440 off-contract.

For those who may not be familiar with the Net10, it's essentially an MVNO and StraightTalk sibling owned by TracFone.

If you've been on the fence about about picking up the white version of the Nexus 4 that just hit the store three days ago, the decision has been made for you if the sixteen gigger was your peach. As of this moment, Google is "temporarily out of stock" of the sparkly white flagship with 16GBs of storage, but if happen to think eight geebees may do the job, then you're still in luck.

The ASUS Transformer AiO is undoubtedly one of the most interesting pieces of Android-powered tech that we've seen in the past year or so. As a member of the Transformer family it's made to convert from one device category to another, but unlike the "typical" Transformers that we're used to seeing from ASUS, this one doesn't change from tablet to laptop – it's both a full Windows 8-powered desktop PC and a gigantic Android tablet.

Update 5/31/13: RC4 is here, just a day after RC3. It's very likely the next release will be the final stable version.

Have you ever considered using Android as your desktop OS? According to CNET, Acer wants you to, as it plans to announce a new all-in-one PC that forgoes Microsoft's OS for Google's free offering. The Acer AIO is said to pack a fourth generation Intel Core i5 chip – which is based on the Haswell architecture – so the unit should be pretty powerful and snappy.

The real allure to this new offering, however, isn't what's under the hood – it's the price.

Imgur's official Android app first hit the scene back in early-ish April, but was then geo-restricted to Australia (later expanded to UK and Canada) whilst in its beta period, leaving tens of thousands (possibly even millions) of angry image-searchers without, well, an app. Hell was raised, tempers flared, blah blah blah. The calm settled in once again, and life went back to normal for the bulk of us.

But now, everything changes.

Whether we're talking about Twitter, Gmail, bank accounts, or anything else accessible on the web, account security is no joke. As a result, we're starting to see more and more companies take advantage of advanced security methods like two-factor authentication, which requires the user to not only entire a username and password, but also a code typically send via SMS to the user's cell phone. This means that a physical device must be accessible, making it much more difficult for would-be snoopsters to remotely gain access to an account.

I have many fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table with my family and playing Uno as a child. The thrill of getting down to one or two cards, hoping that no one throws down a Reverse, Draw Four, or changes the color is still one that I readily recall (and miss). Alas, life goes on, people get older and move away, and before you know it, those simple games of Uno are nothing but a memory of something that you had no idea you'd miss so much.

Verizon may not be the fastest carrier when it comes to sending out over-the-air updates, but it looks like it's finally getting around to pushing a fairly sizable 129.1MB update to its version of the Galaxy S III. The OTA brings many small improvements, as well as a slew of Samsung-specific customizations along for the ride.

Generally speaking, once Verizon updates its support page, updates tend to start rolling out within a few days (if they haven't already).

I've lived in Texas for upwards of a decade now, and there have been numerous occasions when I've vowed to learn Spanish. I haven't actually followed through with that goal (or even attempted to), but thanks to Duolingo and its new Android app, I think I may finally take the time to learn a second language.

In a nutshell, Duolingo's goal is to offer "a college-quality education without the price tag," which actually sounds pretty good to me.
