Sony just announced its Internet Player, and Google is continuing the Google TV news with a revamp to its Google TV landing page. The site gives users a brief overview of what the platform does. Most notably, the "How It Works" page explains the distinction between the two types of Google TVs: integrated and what is apparently now known as "buddy box" style.

The site also now lists many of the major Google TV products, which aren't all that numerous.

Facebook Messenger, an app the social giant says provides "a faster way to message," got a significant update today, bringing it up to version 1.8. The update, besides promising to speed up app loading, navigating (by way of some small UI tweaks), and message sending, contains several new features that are worth mentioning.

Among these new features is the ability to switch between conversations using handy (dismissible) in-app notification bars which appear any time a friend sends you a message in another conversation.

The variety of software that I've had installed on my different Windows computers over the past decade and a half has changed dramatically throughout time. However, there is one piece of software that I have had on every PC I've ever owned: Winamp. I first used Winamp at version 1, and have just stuck with it ever since; no matter how many other media players I tried, I always went back to Winamp.

Update: Verizon just posted on its official blog that the rollout is slated to begin today, June 22.

Verizon has just uploaded the official support documents for the RAZR / RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update (which by the way will be build 6.16.211 – the same build that recently leaked). With the docs going live just moments ago, users should expect the update to officially start rolling out any day now.

Poweramp is one of the most popular music players on Android, with over 10 million downloads and a feature set that blows the default media player out of the water.

Now, after four months of waiting, an update has been released that strengthens it even further, bringing support for action bars in Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich. HTC One X users will be glad to hear that they can now use Poweramp on their phones as well, although HTC Sound Enhancement doesn't work on the One X just yet.

Google's Android Developer's site got a massive overhaul today, with a brand new UI, tons of new features, and a unified guide for developers on how to design, develop, and distribute their apps all in one place. The new site is fantastic-looking. Clearly Google wants to engage developers more and give them more guidance on how to succeed on the Play Store. So, what say we take a tour?

About Android

For anyone who's been kept in the dark, or just doesn't know everything there is to know about Android yet, Google's provided newcomers with a section just to tout the advantages of developing for Android.

About a month ago, Motorola updated its Ice Cream Sandwich update timeline. While we've already seen one update go live on schedule, we're still waiting on official word for the rest of the handsets on the list. Late last night, however, an ICS ROM for the Droid Bionic surfaced, and it seems to be a mostly-complete build.

Flashing this is extremely risky, and could potentially brick your device. You've been warned!

One of the coolest features of Google Maps is the ability to show live traffic patterns on major roadways. Now, Google is rolling out this feature to seven new countries, as well as expanding coverage in 19 others. The new countries in the inner circle are Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Mexico, Peru, Romania and South Africa. Exciting!

As users of the service are no doubt aware, having your country or city covered doesn't necessarily mean every street is covered.
