Sprint Introduces 4G LTE Availability To 41 New Markets, Brings Nationwide Coverage Up To 151 Total

Think of Sprint as the Little Engine That Could. It's tinkered with 4G perhaps longer than any of America's other major carriers, but it has little to show for it. There are large swaths of the country that don't have LTE coverage and the speeds aren't necessarily that fast in the areas that do. Still, those of us on Sprint's network must hold on to hope. The company is hard at work, and today they've announced the availability of 4G LTE in 41 new markets.

The Walking Dead: Assault Review – Not Just Good For Hardcore TWD Fans, But A Pretty Solid Game Overall

It's not much of a secret that I'm basically obsessed with The Walking Dead. When new seasons air, Sundays are easily my favorite day of the week – every passing moment leading up to the start of each week gets me one step closer to finding out what's going to happen to Rick and the crew next.

Google Quietly Added Built-In TRIM Support In Android 4.3 – Should Fix Most Storage-Related Device Slowdowns

Many users of the original Nexus 7 remember how slow the device could get after a few months of heavy use. At least part of this problem has to do with the way NAND flash stores and deletes data. Android 4.3 comes with a little-hyped feature that could be huge for performance in the future – TRIM support via fstrim.
