I'm a big fan of cutting the cord. But this time I'm not talking about cancelling your cable and moving your Judge Judy marathons online - I'm all about going wireless in the audio department. Wireless speakers, wireless streaming, and, of course, wireless portable audio.

My Previous Bluetooth Daily Driver - Sony HBH-IS800

Up until a few weeks ago, I was using Sony's HBH-IS800, which deserves a separate review of its own if I ever get to it.

Sprint's list of 2012 LTE rollout markets (confirmed or otherwise) seems to be growing by the minute. Last week, it was revealed that construction was beginning in the San Francisco Bay Area, headed for official activation by the end of 2012. Today, S4GRU revealed that NYC may also be on the list of 2012 markets, explaining that Sprint is not likely to announce second or third-round markets because there is no way to accurately determine when activations will occur.

We've taken a look at a few different cases for the Galaxy Nexus over the past several weeks, but they've all been the same type of case: ruggedized. However, not everyone wants a case that is constantly attached to their device.

Some people prefer a much simpler approach, like a slipcase. That's exactly what the Crumena case from SPIGEN SGP (formerly just 'SGP') is -- and it's a damn nice one.

After releasing apps for both UK/Ireland and Australia/New Zealand markets, Domino's Pizza has finally introduced an official app for Android users in the US, bringing the aptly named Domino's Pizza USA app to the Android Market recently.

The app has all the functionality of the pizza maker's online ordering system, with a streamlined, intuitive interface. Users can view the national menu, order from nearly 5,000 locations, and even find location-specific coupons.

While the much-talked-about Galaxy S III will be conspicuously absent from MWC this year, BGR has received an exclusive tip relaying some of the handset's juicy details. To start with, BGR reports that Samsung is holding off the S III's big reveal in order to "shorten the gap" between announcement and official release. Samsung is evidently planning to release the S III in over 50 global markets simultaneously.

The S III is also rumored (according to BGR's "trusted source") to be packing a 4.8" display (thought to be Super AMOLED Plus HD), a quad-core processor, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE connectivity, and a stylish back piece made entirely of a ceramic material.

If you've downloaded anything Temple Run-related from the Android Market, you've been scammed. We do our best to keep you informed, but this app in particular seems to spark a lot of fakes. Thankfully, Imangi Studios, the developer behind Temple Run, announced on their Facebook page that the app isn't out yet, but when it is the company will announce it at least a week in advance.

The sheer number of scam apps that have been appearing in the Android Market is astounding.

One of the biggest restrictions that we face as Android users is "device incompatibility" issues in the Market, even though the app in question may work perfectly on our device. For example, according to the Android Market, Plants Vs. Zombies is "incompatible" with my Galaxy Tab 10.1; however, when it was initially released to the Amazon Appstore (and before Popcap was bought by EA), I always played it on the Tab.

My favorite gallery replacement app QuickPic, which is notorious for its speed and simplicity, just got updated with a brand new spiffy UI based on the new Android design guidelines that were published at the time of the Ice Cream Sandwich release.

The new UI in v2.0 is now much cleaner and more fluid, with action buttons at the top right and context buttons showing up dynamically on the bottom when they're needed.

A few months ago, Liam spent some time with 17 mobile security apps, one of which was an app called Cerberus. He came away quite impressed - so impressed, in fact, that he crowned it the winner (and, as a license is just $4, it was also crowned the best for the budget-minded).

The app is always free to download and comes with a 1 week free trial, but a lifetime license is normally $4.
