GS4-Active_merged_575px

There's nothing like a fresh batch of source code to get you through another Monday morning. Samsung has just posted the kernel source for two of its newer S4 variants, the Galaxy S4 active (i9295), and the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S4 Mini (i9192). Samsung has been on an open source run lately with the AT&T GS4 and Galaxy Tab 8.0 going up just last week.

If you're the developer type who really lives for this, grab the Jelly Bean code at Samsung's open source pages linked below.

The HTC One is a great phone, and there are plenty of reasons to buy it. If you need just one more reason to push you over the edge, this may be it. HTC is offering $25 in Google Play cash to buyers, and it's easy to redeem. Some restrictions apply, as usual.

The smartphone price wars are continuing after Amazon temporarily dropped the Sprint HTC One to $79.99 yesterday. Now Wirefly has taken the device down to only $49.99 with a new two-year contract.

Keep in mind this price is only available on new lines of service. That can mean a completely new account, or a new line on an existing account in this case. Upgrades on existing lines are $129.99. That's still a deal when you consider the $639.99 price tag on an unsubsidized Sprint HTC One.

CPU-Z has long been a popular tool on the desktop for identifying hardware components quickly and easily. Now that same power has come to Android with the first beta release of CPU-Z in the Play Store.

There aren't a lot of bells and whistles in CPU-Z, but it knows absolutely everything about your hardware. It'll ID your ARM chip down to the revision number, find software and kernel versions, track RAM and processor load, and list all of your internal sensors.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 might be a new phone, but there are already some great deals to be had online. Amazon previously lowered the price to $168, but now it's down to just $129.99 for new lines, and $139.99 for upgrades on existing ones.

We have all been anxiously awaiting news of a successor to the Nexus 7, which is now a year old. Google I/O came and went with no announcement, leaving everyone a bit deflated. Now some regulatory filings appear to offer the first peek at what Google and Asus have up theirs sleeves for a new Nexus 7.

The Bluetooth SIG includes a small image of what is apparently the new Asus-made N7, but from the front it's just a generic black rectangle.

AT&T must be feeling more confident in its LTE network because the carrier is going to allow the unwashed masses of prepaid customers to access it very soon. Beginning on June 21st, new and existing GoPhone users will be able to connect to 4G LTE service with compatible devices.

AT&T's GoPhone service comes in a few tiers, all a bit cheaper than the regular plans. These are your options:

  • $60 a month for 2 GB of data, unlimited nationwide calling, and unlimited messaging — now double the data at a lower monthly price.

Amazon is really killing it with these deals lately. This time it's selling the still pretty good LG Optimus G for $0.01 with a new contract. That might as well be free. Just yesterday AT&T dropped the price to $50, and now this. They're practically giving these things away.

The new re-reboot of the Superman franchise is getting a lot of buzz, and now you can get in on the fun with the official Man of Steel game. It's arriving right on time, in fact. Can you save the world in this new game, or will you lose interest and go on Reddit or something while General Zod conquers Earth? Stop being so lazy, Superman.

From all appearances, this title seems like yet another Infinity Blade clone with swiping combat and pretty graphics.
