Since Samsung announced the Exynos 5 Octa at CES 2013, one major criticism has been leveled at its implementation of big.Little technology time and again: for some reason, it has only ever been able to run 4 of its 8 cores at a time. Not only that, but it has never been able to mix-and-match the higher performance A15 cores with power efficient A7 cores to get the best possible configuration for performance and power usage.

Korean readers, there's good news tonight... or more accurately tomorrow afternoon. The new Nexus 7 has gone on sale in the South Korean Google Play Store, or at least the WiFi version has. You can pick up a 16GB tablet for 329,000 won, which works out to just over $300 USD. The 32GB model is going for 369,000 won, about $340. According to this page, the LTE version that just launched in the US is coming soon, though there's no price.

A Google Play Music update v5.2 just popped up in the Play Store, though it's being slowly rolled out, as is the case with many big Google apps nowadays. The previous version is 5.1, and indeed I'm seeing quite a few changes inside that would warrant a point release.

Update 9/10/13 4:00pm PT: the official changelog has been posted:

What's New

v5.2.1204L

If you have been waiting on the LTE variant of the new Nexus 7, now is the time to make your move. The 32GB slate has just gone live in Google Play, and it can be yours for $349 with free 3-5 day shipping. In addition, the device will be appearing in T-Mobile stores come October.

The only difference between this device and the version that launched a few weeks ago is this one has that SIM slot for access to HSPA and LTE networks.

Google has started rolling out the newest update to Glass, dubbed XE9. This version of the Glass software enables Google Apps users to sign into glass, which was a major requested feature. There are also new Google Now cards, sound search, and a cool UI overlay feature called Vignettes.

The Motorola DROID Ultra is a strange beast, at once a preview of Motorola's Google-centric future and a connection to its recent independent past. While its specifications and software features are nearly identical to the ubiquitous Moto X, a unique design and Verizon exclusivity (along with the DROID Mini and DROID MAXX) means that it shares a market position with previous DROIDs... a position that's somewhat irrelevant these days.

So why would you choose a DROID Ultra over the Moto X?

The Roku app is great for controlling a Roku set-top box, but that's what you have a remote for, right? The app previously included audio and picture streaming from Android devices, but now it goes one step further. The new update allows Android devices to stream video directly to the player over WiFi.

The 'Play on Roku' tab in the interface has a new entry for videos, which should pull up all the compatible videos on your device organized by folder.

The HTC One first debuted in silver, and I suspect using Robert Downey Jr. to advertise this handset might just be a match made in heaven, because like Iron Man, the phone has also appeared in shades of red and black (though not yellow). Now Best Buy is rolling in a new version of the HTC One that the Iron Patriot could proudly hold to his ear, a blue version that's exclusive to the big box retailer launching on September 15.
