So Google Maps hit version 6.8 yesterday, bringing with it the crazy Zagat/Google+ mashup that was detailed earlier. The "What's New" section in the Play Store lists "See reviews from experts and people you know," "Find just the right places with Zagat scores and summaries," "Get directions directly from map bubbles," but they left out the most interesting new change: "Unreleased feature assets buried in the APK."

The internet is positively buzzing with news of a supposed leak of the T-Mobile Galaxy S III in both white and the still elusive pebble blue variety. Many sites seem convinced these are the real deal, and as much as I'd like to believe that, there are some issues that leave me feeling skeptical.

Google announced today that it will be holding a special event on Wednesday, June 6th, regarding the future of Google Maps. Anyone who knows Google knows that these products are huge for the company, ranking right up there with Gmail and Android. More importantly, however, Google Maps is very important to Google's largest competitor: Apple. Which is why, when Google announces an event for one of its last major strongholds on iOS mere days before Apple's WWDC, we take notice.

If there are two things that go together like peas and carrots, it's fast cars and killing people. In a virtual world, that is. We don't condone the killing of actual people here at Android Police.

If these are two things that you just can't get enough of, though, then the upcoming remake of the 90's classic Carmageddon is sure to put a smile on your face. It certianly did mine.

Cruzerlite, the company behind the kickass Androidified gel case, has come a long way over the last several months. Instead of just offering a couple of different cases for one or two devices sold exclusively through Amazon, they now offer several cases for over a dozen different devices. To go along with their newly expanded case lineup, they've also launched an all-new website. In fact, their new site is one of the best that we've ever seen for a small company.

Finally, after a bajillion years of waiting, the first Android tablet is finally getting its very own update to Android 4.0, finally. Finally. As some of you may recall, the WiFi model received an ICS update months ago, but the 3G/4G version, which has been plagued with problems since launch, including lack of advertised flash support and an actual 4G modem, is only just now set to get the OTA update.
