Boxee-Thumb

Samsung has bought Boxee for a reported $30 million. Details have not been provided, but it's within reason to assume that Samsung is seeking expertise to improve both its Smart TV product line and the company's broader media ecosystem. The acquisition will bring all of Boxee's employees over to work for the company after, we assume, Samsung's execs visited the Boxee webpage and took the big green button perhaps too literally.

Falcon Pro users have had a front-row seat to quite a bit of drama over the last few months. The events started when the app struck its 100,000 user token limit, which lead to the developer to reset user tokens in an effort to reallocate them to active users. Eventually, all of the tokens were consumed again, in part to the addition of multi-account support, and another "reset" was announced.

Both the Yonhap and Chosun news agencies of Korea are reporting that Samsung Mobile President JK Shin has confirmed 20 million Galaxy S4 handsets have been sold since the phone launched around the end of April. The Verge has a handy graphic below comparing sales of the Galaxy S4, S III, and S II against the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 from their respective launch dates. As you can see, if the 20 million figure is correct, Samsung is quickly closing in on Apple's "single model sales" crown.

After teasing the Moto X yesterday, Motorola is again tormenting Android fans by posting a sign-up page for the Moto X. Just put in your email, and the Google subsidiary will send you info on the upcoming device when it's available – probably only a few hours after it appears on your favorite website.

The page again offers limited details on the device, except to remind everyone a few more times that it was engineered and assembled in the good old US of A.

Barnes & Noble may be toning down its Android tablet business, but they'd still really appreciate it if you bought some books from them. To that end, they've updated the Nook Android app to version 3.4, with a focus on better magazine browsing and book images. Now Android tablets with a resolution of 1280x720 or higher (which should be pretty much everything made in the last year, barring some off-brand hardware) have access to bigger, sharper HD scans of magazines.

Pebble is having a big day. A few hours after announcing their first retailer partnership with the omnipresent Best Buy, they've kicked out another software update for the smartwatch, which adds bugfixes and... well just bugfixes, and now the screen backlight flashes when you plug it into its charger to let you know that it's charging. More changes will become apparent when the next version of the Pebble Kit SDK is sent out.

The bugdroid speaker is back on sale. This thing is so darn adorable it doesn't even matter there are better quality speakers out there. The speaker is shaped like our favorite OS personified, and it plays music. What more do you want?
