It's not often that we see a live wallpaper that's interesting enough to feature all on its own, but Tiny Phone People fits the bill. This elaborate wallpaper makes your phone a window into the tiny life of one diminutive denizen, as he or she makes their way around the house. The wallpaper gives you a cutaway view of their living place, not unlike a modified version of The Sims... or a certain Hitchcock classic.

If you're searching for a deal on flash storage, today may be the day to act: Amazon's Gold Box deal of the day for February 4th includes a sizeable selection of SanDisk cards and flash drives.

While the list includes full-sized SDXD, CF cards, and USB flash drives, of particular interest to the Android crowd will be the microSDXC cards, which are becoming absurdly cheap of late. For just $24, you can get a 32GB mSDXC card, or for $47, a 64GB card.

If you've been waiting on more information about T-Mobile's up-and-coming LTE-powered Galaxy S III – like, you know, a potential release date – wait no more. TMoNews has gotten its hands on a leaked image of an internal T-Mobile slide that shows what could be a probable release time frame for the device:

As you can see, way down at the bottom, it clearly reads Samsung T999L Galaxy S III LTE, with a launch date of either March 27th or April 3rd.

If you make money on the Play Store, you should probably check your email. Google is sending out a notification to developers to let them know that in the future, payments will be sent out on a 15 day delay instead of the one or two days the company has been using for a while. What does this mean for you? Well, if selling apps is a primary source of income for you, then you'll want to do some planning.

A few months ago I wrote "Stock Android Isn't Perfect," an article where I turned my usual harsh UX critique on stock Android, instead of just picking on TouchWiz and Sense all the time in my reviews. The article went over pretty well, and even got a few responses from Googlers! I didn't cover everything that was wrong with Android, though, and there have been a bunch of updates since the original article, so it's about time I wrote a sequel.

Looks like it's OTA Monday for T-Mobile! The carrier just updated its support docs for three different handsets – the Galaxy Note, Relay 4G, and Blaze 4G – with details of incoming updates. While the first two devices are just receiving minor security enhancements, the latter is getting a major bump from Gingerbread to ICS. Here's a brief rundown of what to expect from each OTA:

  • Galaxy Note (T879UVMA1) – Security Enhancements
  • Galaxy S Relay 4G (T699UVMA2) – Security Enhancements
  • Galaxy S Blaze 4G (T769UVLF5) – Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Mobile Hotspot Icon location fix, Add Email option fix

For all the Blaze owners out there, this may look all too familiar.

GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual (1)

While Samsung may have made quite a splash with its new ad during "the big game" here in the States, its Canadian branch had a pretty big announcement of its own: an update that brings Multi-Window and Chinese language support will be coming to the Galaxy Note II on "national carriers" beginning this Wednesday. By "national carriers," we're assuming that means Canada's big three: Telus, Bell, and Rogers.

For those who may not be familiar with the feature, Multi-Window is Samsung's claim to fame on the Note II, as it's the standout feature that allows users to run multiple apps on the screen at one time.

Reactions have been mixed to Samsung's somewhat understated Superbowl big game commercial, featuring comedy B-listers Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd. If you couldn't get enough of the pair trading jabs while pitching a meta Galaxy ad, Samsung has posted the full 4:40 cut to YouTube. The ad follows the plot and pacing of the shorter version, but there's a few extra punch lines in there. Just in case ninety seconds of middle-aged verbal jousting wasn't enough for you.

Those of you who run Linux or Unix will be familiar with Wine, perhaps the best-known solution for running some Windows programs on open-source desktop operating systems. The long-running project is a staple of the Linux community. In a presentation at the Free and Open source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) 2013 in Brussels, Wine creator Alexandre Julliard confirmed spoke on an ARM-based version of the software and showed a brief demo of Wine running on Android.
