MLB At Bat App Update Resolves Live Video Issues On Android 4.3

Upgrading to a new version of Android is always nice, but Nexus users (and just lately, Google Play Edition users) tend to become unwitting beta testers for a lot of apps. Case in point: MLB At Bat, the official news, scores, and video app for Major League Baseball's online subscription service.

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has been getting a lot of ink as of late, but not for their hardware: former Googler Hugo Barra is now their Vice President of Global.

[IFA 2013] Hands-On With The Sony Xperia Z1 (Video)

Sony's oft-leaked Xperia Z1 finally made its official debut at IFA in Berlin yesterday, and I had a chance to take a few minutes and look at the company's latest smartphone creation.
