Right after Motorola announces that the Xyboard's update would be pushed back, this happens. Verizon just updated the 8.2's support docs with details of an impending update, which includes Android 4.0.

I'm not really a big car enthusiast, but there's just something that everyone can appreciate about drifting. Even in games, hitting the curve and sliding it through is a killer feeling, but it's one that even the best of racing games don't put a lot of focus on. That's where Drift Mania Championship 2 changes things - it's all about the drift, baby.

As you can see, not only does this game put you behind the wheel and let you slide all over the place, but it looks fantastic doing so.

One of the nicest options of ASUS' line of tablets is the keyboard dock with a built-in extra battery that can make your device run forever and much easier to type on. The downside? Those docks tend to cost over $100. In the case of the Transformer Pad 300 (TF300), exactly $127, to be precise. Right now, though, Newegg is offering it for free if you buy it with the tablet.

It seems like everyone's getting a Galaxy S III lately, and C Spire Wireless (formerly Cellular South) didn't want to be left out. If you're unfamiliar with the company, they're a regional provider in the Southeastern US, with a Verizon-sourced regional MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) national network. C Spire operates its own network on its home turf, and that includes a growing LTE footprint. That LTE, for now, is quite limited, basically to a few parts of the Southeast US.

Searching for flights on the internet has always been kind of easy. But the various interfaces, data entry fields, and numerous sites you have to go to (unless you use Kayak) to find them have never made it a joyful experience, exactly. Google wants to change that. Now, you may already know Google publishes a flight search app called OnTheFly by ITA.

I just want to put this on the table: I don't like football. It's not that I don't understand it - I just find it boring. And silly. I tried to get into it once, and that just wasn't happening. But, I also realize that many of you lovely folks do like football. So this is for you. Well, kind of.

The NFL pushed a pretty major update to its "NFL '12" app last night that brings some pretty nice features for anyone who uses the app:

What's in this version:

- All new Thursday Night Football Xtra companion experience
- Completely redesigned Videos section (Android tablet only)
- Access to the NFL.com/Live look-in show for TNF (Android tablet only)
- Ability to share all your favorite News
- Added more stats
- Bug fixes

So, what's the problem?

Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.

Google Maps is awesome. You know why it's awesome? Because of stuff like this. On the Lat Long Blog today, Google announced that it has implemented new 45-degree flyover imagery in 51 cities (such as below) around the world - 37 in the US, 14 abroad.

PIZZA

Satellite imagery has also been updated. 17 cities have refreshed space-based shots, along with 112 various regions in a whole bunch 'o countries. So, today's probably a prime opportunity to go around gloating to those friends of yours who are, shall we say, less geographically fortunate.

Looking to give users the "fastest, smartest launcher for Android," Jesse Andersen brought Conjure to the Play Store recently. The app, which is actually more of a launcher companion, can perform an incredible range of actions, from finding and launching apps to calling contacts, adjusting device settings (like volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.), and searching the web.

What's great about this app is not that it can do a lot, but that it actually adapts to your usage, storing a history of actions and listing content results by frequency of use.
