Not content to wait for manufacturers to get in to shape and update our phones to the latest and greatest versions of Android, most of us here at Android Police have had a brush with a number of custom ROMs in the past.

Whether it's the latest version of Cyanogen or a more obscure mod, there is always a ROM floating around on my phone, and until now I've always had to uninstall one before installing the other.

There are a number of security applications available for Android, such as WaveSecure and Lookout, which lock down your phone if it is lost or stolen, but few come close to being as secure and robust as Theft Aware 2.0.

We took a look at the application at the end of last year, and were thoroughly impressed by its ability to take advantage of rooted devices, installing itself into the system partition of your phone so that it isn't affected by even a full system wipe.

We've seen some great deals on XOOM as of late, with Staples offering the tablet for just $450 brand new earlier this month, and a refurbished model going for a mere $399.99 a few days later.

If, despite those deals, you still haven't pulled the trigger on the XOOM, this latest offer may just tempt you even further. Daily Steals is offering the tablet brand new with Wi-Fi and 32GB of storage for just $429.99 plus $5 shipping until the end of the day.

Did Asphalt 5 and Asphalt 6 not quite cut it for you when it comes to racing games on Android? Can I not tempt you with N.O.V.A. 2 either? Fear not! Gameloft is back with a new title, GT Racing: Academy Free+, which is available to download right now on the Android Market.

Although the title is free, you will probably have coughed up some money by the time you've finished playing.

Us Brits are pretty hard off when it comes to data plans. Tariffs may not be as expensive as they are in the States, but you can expect to have a pretty tight data allowance when you purchase a smartphone on this side of the pond.

Although most carriers don't allow more than a few GB per month, Three UK has recently launched the One plan, which offers truly unlimited data on all plans which are £35 a month.

Before I begin, let's please drop the pretense. This is the internet and nobody knows who you are, so don't sit there and pretend that you don't miss Winnie the Pooh, because EVERYONE misses Winnie the Pooh!

You probably already know this, but a new Winnie the Pooh was just released in the States , so Disney has released an Android application to promote the film and delight your kids - and you - at the same time.
