While it's not exactly ripe with details, the Hulu Plus for Android app's latest update promises increased playback resolution for three popular 1080p handsets: the Galaxy S4, DROID DNA, and HTC One. The assumption you might make, then, is that it's adding 1080p playback.

That's possible, though the amount of 1080p content Hulu currently provides is pretty limited, apparently. And Hulu itself lists a maximum resolution of 720p on its supported devices page.

The new Gmail is here, very slowly rolling out thanks to staged rollouts that may take a few weeks to complete. Thankfully, we already have the APK, and it's only a quick download away. The version number is 4.5-694836, and it's beautiful. Gogogo grab it!

Update: If you don't see the categories, go to the desktop version of Gmail, click the gear icon on the top right, and select Configure Inbox.

Called Fleksy, this software promised predictions so accurate you can type without looking at the screen.

One of the truest shared experiences between people who create anything for public consumption is a ravenous desire to know how many people are using it and what they think.
