HTC hasn't completely forgotten its older devices as it continues talking up the HTC One. The One X+ is finally getting an update to Android 4.2.2, which is actually newer software than the current generation One in the US runs... but that's beside the point. The OTA is hitting Taiwan first, but we've already got a full system dump and a ROM based on it.

The software features are essentially the same as you'd see on other HTC devices running 4.2.2.

Chromecast is one of the slicker devices to come out of Google HQ in a while. After you're all set up, just tap a button on YouTube or Netflix, and BAM, whatever you were watching is now on your television. It's really awesome.

For the researchy-types like me, the Chromecast comes with two piece of software to dig through. The first is the physical device software, which, while it is sort-of Android based, it's only Android-based at the low level.

When I checked out the WiFi-only version of the Xperia Tablet Z I was surprised by how solid it was. One of my main gripes was the old software and the UI that came with it. Well, the first variant of the Tablet Z is now getting an update to Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2, and it changes the interface to a hybrid of the old UI and new UI used on the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

Samsung seems to be on a bit of an update spree lately, trying to get its devices up to speed on Android 4.2. This time it's the LTE Galaxy Note 8.0 and the somewhat older Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 with 3G. Attacking the system update button like an enraged jungle cat won't do any good, folks. These updates are rolling out in stages.

The Note 8.0 update is starting in the UK, with expansions to more countries soon.

We knew it wouldn't be long, and sure enough, the Android 4.3 update has started hitting Google Play Edition devices. Both the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 from Google Play are currently receiving update notifications. If you're lucky enough to have one of these devices, commence mashing the update button at your leisure.

The updates for both devices are developed by the OEMs, but there are no modifications to the UI and no carrier testing to get in the way.

Anyone paying $20 per month for a premium cable channel should probably be doing everything possible to take advantage of it. With that in mind, the new update to Showtime Anywhere has added live streaming of Showtime to the app, but it's only available if you're a paying subscriber.

All the archived episodes of Showtime series are included, but now you can see what's airing on the Showtime East and Showtime West feeds.

The T-Mobile variant of the HTC One hasn't gotten an update since May, but the one rolling out now is not the fabled Android 4.2.2 out on the international version. No, this is still 4.1.2.

If you're one of the lucky few with a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there's an update headed your way. It's based on Android 4.1.2, just like the last one was, but it adds one notable new feature: LTE. Yes, the tablet's latent LTE radio has been enabled with this update.

The new version of the software is starting to hit devices today, but mashing the update button won't help. It's going to be arriving in waves until all tablets have gotten the notification around July 19th.
