FlyFit, Yet Another Fitness Band (For Your Ankle!), Reaches Kickstarter Funding Goal Of $90,000

It seems we're awash in fitness and activity trackers of late, and Kickstarter has been home to a number of such devices in the past year. FlyFit, another such product, just surpassed its $90,000 funding goal this morning, so backers should hopefully be seeing a product at some point.

FlyFit's primary claim to fame is that it's a fitness tracker designed exclusively to be worn around the ankle, as opposed to the wrist.

Software version T217SVPUANB8 will improve WiFi, install KNOX, and make the WiFi "auto network switch" default to off. That last one's pretty specific, but Sprint says it will ultimately enable users to connect to any WiFi network regardless of its strength by suppressing the "Your internet connection is unstable" error message.

Verizon's version of the Galaxy S III Mini (you know, the one with the defaced home button) is slated to receive a minor over-the-air update in the coming days, bringing along software version G730VVRUANA4. The update is indeed fairly unremarkable, updating some of that lovely Verizon bloat, removing a "never time out" feature from Bluetooth settings, adding photos to incoming calls on call waiting, and something about "enhanced device security" (probably Android security patches).

Mogees has surpassed its £50,000 Kickstarter funding goal with 13 days to go. Why should you care? Listen up. No seriously, click on the video below, and listen up. Written words don't quite do this concept justice.

Nabi 2 Nickelodeon Edition Tablet Over-The-Air Update Adds The Google Play Store Three Months After The Standard Version

Or maybe it's just the parents of the owners who care. In either case, the Nickelodeon Edition Nabi 2 now has access to the Play Store courtesy of the latest OTA.

Bing For Android Now Supports Downloading Images, A Feature Google Stripped From Its Own Search App

There are multiple ways to go after users. One way is to come up with a catchy word (Scroogled), slur a competitor with it (Google), sell some shirts, and hope it sticks. An alternative approach is to introduce functionality that could potentially draw their interest. The latest Bing for Android update does just that. Now Bing supports downloading images found in search results, a feature Google previously introduced into its own search app only to remove it later.
