Google Music beta, previously available by invitation only from Google, is opening up its doors a bit starting today with the rollout of invite capabilities.

There aren't many yet - I and everyone else I've seen who have gotten invites, received 2 to hand out, so if you're already a member, log into your Music account, check how many you were granted, and start a bidding war among your friends (fall back to a sword duel in case of disputes).

Users that have been testing out Dolphin Browser's newest private beta received a somewhat alarming email this morning: a message containing the email addresses of thousands of other beta testers. The email also included some rather interesting "keys," but it hasn't been determined what the keys represent at this point, or if they have anything to do with the leaked addresses.

If you're a part of the Dolphin Beta and you didn't receive this email, you need to be aware that your email address may have been leaked as well.

Have you ever been out somewhere when you were suddenly hit with a stroke of artistic genius? You haven't? Oh... well, have you ever been bored and just wanted to doodle on your phone a bit? If you fall into either of those categories, you need to check out a new app called Fresco.

In a page taken directly from the Firefox playbook, the team behind Dolphin Browser have thrown the newest beta version of Dolphin HD into the market alongside the current stable version. This allows you to test out all of the upcoming features in Dolphin while they're still bleeding edge, without sacrificing the stability of the current version, as you can have them both installed at the same time.

I'm not entirely sure what they were thinking when they chose that font.

If you own a Samsung phone or tablet, there's a good chance that you've heard of Kies, Samsung's proprietary synchronization software. If you're also a Mac user, I'd be willing to bet that you're familiar with the frustration of Kies' Windows exclusivity.

Good news, though - the days of booting into Windows just to sync some data or grab an update are over, as Samsung finally released a version of Kies for Mac.

New Hotness

The newest version adds a lot of features, most of which are designed to help you get words onto the screen quickly. SwiftKey's game has always been one of text prediction: its ability to learn from your SMS and language modules made it perfect for those who find themselves relying on auto-correct a lot.

Update 3: Swype has contacted us to clarify the following: 

Swype does not, and will not ever make money off of the data it collects from you.  They do not sell ads.  They do not sell information. The comment made on the CM review forum was a generalization about the larger Android app developer community, and in no way was intended to imply that Swype uses your data for ad revenue.
