Minecraft, the wildly popular online creativity toy, has also had a pocket version of itself in development for a while. Up until now, though, you could only really mine. As of today, though, Mojang, the company behind the game, has released version 0.3.0 that finally includes (and you may want to sit down for this one) crafting!
Up until this point, you've been able to scavenge around for materials, but if you wanted to do anything with them, you're stuck. Read More

Update 4/23/12: This update is now rolling out OTA (thanks, Kristopher and others).
It's been a bit of a disappointing ride for the Droid RAZR and its beefier brother over the last few weeks - first, we were told that the ICS update was to start rolling out on April 4th, but that didn't happen. Instead, Moto was going to start a soak test of a new enhancement build, but... Read More
A few days ago, LG made available the V21y update for owners of the G2x. Users were delighted - though the update wasn't major, it did seem to bring some notable additions, according to this unofficial changelog:
- Update to Android 2.3.4
- Built-in Google Plus capabilities
- Swype 3.26.92
- New RIL and baseband (dated March 11, 2012)
- Improved battery life
However, the update was pulled shortly after, though those who'd managed to grab it found it quite stable. Read More
Owners of the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju) are waking up to an OTA update notification this morning that is said to fix the signal loss issues which came along with build IMM76D. Since this new build (IMM76I) doesn't bump the Android version, kernel, or radios at all, however, we're not sure if the update makes any other changes (though it's unlikely).
For those who want to update manually, you can grab the download right here. Read More
Here's a bit of good news for all of you who have an unlocked (global) Samsung Galaxy S II here in the U.S.: Ice Cream Sandwich is being pushed to your device right now. This makes the global GSII the first of the GSII family to officially get Ice Cream Sandwich in the U.S., as none of the three American carriers that offer the phone have begun sending the update yet.

Looks like Big Red is on a roll with the OTA updates this week. First the RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4, then the LG Spectrum, and now the Casio G'zOne Commando. If you don't remember, the all but forgotten G'zOne is Casio's rugged offering to the Android world, packing lightweight specs in a heavyweight shell.
The OTA update, which is build number C771M110 for those who like to keep up with that sort of thing, brings a number of enhancements and fixes:
As always, we expect the update to begin rolling out at any time now, but you can check to see if the update is available on your device by going into Settings > About phone > System updates > Check New. Read More
Big Red isn't skimping on the updates over the past couple of days (though none of them are ICS) - yesterday we saw changelogs for upcoming Droid RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4 OTAs, and today, details for an upcoming OTA to the LG Spectrum hit Verizon's site.
While this update appears to be nothing more than a incremental Gingerbread update (which brings the device up to Android version 2.3.6) it does bring quite a few fixes and enhancements to the device:
As always, there's no word as to when the update will start rolling out, but most OTAs start within a few days of the documents hitting Verizon's support site. Read More
