BBC Launches BBC Media Player, Lets UK Android Users Go Flashless With iPlayer Content

When Adobe announced the end of Flash for Android, it had a particular impact in the UK, as it was the plugin of choice for BBC's iPlayer video streaming service. With Flash for Android now officially discontinued for devices that haven't installed it previously (and all Android 4.1 devices), this is obviously a problem.

I-MEGO THRONE Gold Headphones: $130 Of Great Sound And Loud Style

It seems like headphones have become more of a fashion statement, most commonly demonstrated by the Beats-equipped youth that traipse around as if their $100 Bluetooth headphones are a premium product. They've become as much of a fashion statement as clothing, with a pricing system to match - that is, many of the more expensive fashionable brands are simply the same materials with a fancier name.

Hands-On With LG's New Quad-Core Powerhouse, The Optimus G

Greetings from New York! LG showed off the Optimus G today, their new monster of a phone. If you haven’t heard, it’s the first phone with a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

It’s also one of the first phones to have a next-gen Adreno 320 GPU, which, again, means it should be really fast.

First CyanogenMod 10 Nightly Officially Arrives For The Tegra 3 One X

CyanogenMod 10 nightlies have finally landed for the international version of HTC's One X, and you can download the first build right here. As the owner of such a One X, I find myself particularly interested in this bit of news, because I'm rather curious how much better this phone will be running stock[-ish] Jelly Bean. The One X is a truly fantastic piece of hardware, but its software has always left something to be desired, especially after you've lived with Sense 4.0 for a few months.

We already know that the Big Four will be getting their own respective renditions of the Galaxy Note II. We also expect that it'll also be part of a unified release much like the Galaxy S III. We've even seen how Verizon defiled its home button. Turns out leaving its mark on the face of the device wasn't enough for Big Red, though; the carrier has also done some work to the bootloader.
