Are you ready for some football?! If you have $20 and a high tolerance for irritation, the new NFL Preseason app for Android tablets is out and ready to accept your cash. The fee is actually for a subscription to the online preseason coverage, which can be watched in a web browser. Judging by the early reviews of NFL Preseason Live for Tablet, that might be where you want to watch it.

In a maneuver that the New York Times describes as "an effort to give economists, policy makers, business owners and citizens greater access to real-time data on the health of the nation's economy," the US Census Bureau recently released its America's Economy app to Google's Play Store.

The app, which is available in separate downloads for tablets and phones, gives users a quick look at a wide range of economic indicators, from business inventories to construction spending, homeownership rate, monthly wholesale, and a heaping handful of others.

Tablets are good for a lot of things: surfing the web, playing games, watching movies, checking email, and even getting some work done, among others. For many of us, the tablet has largely replaced the smartphone as a go-to device for mobile computing. On occasion, though, it needs a little help to make certain tasks - such as listening to music - a standout experience. For that, there's no shortage of speaker accessories available, many of which are small, portable, and Bluetooth.

summer sale
Last Updated: August 11th, 2012

It's a good time to be an Android gamer - three respectable game developers have just slashed the prices of their games to less than $1 (up to 85% off) in a wild summer sale.

First up, Gameloft's 3D MMORPG Order & Chaos has seen its price reduced to $0.99. This is a pretty significant sale considering it usually costs $6.99, and it seems like a viable option for MMORPG fans, as evidenced by its current 4.25-star rating on the Play Store.

These updates might not amount to much, but it's always nice to see official updates to older devices. I'm talking really old, like the myTouch 3G Slide and the G2, both released all the way back in 2010. If you're in possession of said devices and are not yet running a custom ROM with something more fresh than Android 2.2 and 2.3.4 respectively (why not?), here's what's coming:

  • Security patch
  • Improved software stability

Descriptive, isn't it?

This may not be strictly Android-related news, but it's safe to say that what Google does to search results is relevant to our readers' interests, no? Today, Google announced via its Inside Search blog that the company will start including the volume of valid copyright removal notices as a factor in determining how high or low a site ranks in its search results. Translation: pirate sites won't be removed entirely, but they'll start ranking lower than legitimate sites.

We've received some interesting information from an insider at Carphone Warehouse suggesting that a black version of Samsung's Galaxy S III is in the works, and we're inclined to trust it. Here's our evidence, from the company's internal product database:

If you recall, way back when the Galaxy S III was but a rumor-laden twinkle in our collective eyes, GSMArena received a similar leak from inside Carphone Warehouse confirming the white and blue colors the phone was launched in.

Update: Here's HTC's official statement regarding the update, which elaborates on the changes in greater detail:

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.
