So, you like to play golf. Ever wish there were a way to see how you can improve your swing? Thanks to a new Bluetooth accessory called SwingTip, now you can.

It's pretty simple: install the companion app, put SwingTip on your club, pair it with your phone, and swing away. The unit automatically detects your swing and and sends the info back to your phone or tablet. From there, it can give you all the info you've ever wanted to know about your game, including a full animation, club head speed, swing path, club face angle, impact zone, and tempo.

Have you ever rented a car to get around a city you're visiting, or borrows a friend's, only to find that you've paid a bunch of money for the convenience of travelling four or five miles back and forth a couple times? Even Zipcar can feel a little wasteful at times, especially if you're the only one it's carrying.

The video shows and only discusses the iPhone mount, but Android mounts are available, too.

If you've ever been on your way out the door while trying to decipher a delayed weather radar map, this is your lucky day. Already a notable app for iOS users, Sky Motion has arrived on Android to make sure you always know when inclement weather is on the way.

This is not a full-featured weather app, and it's not supposed to be. Sky Motion specializes in hyper-local geolocation weather reports.

Tons of new character models (and weapons) are already the standout feature here. We actually heard about Deadzone back in January at CES, when Madfinger slated the game for a Q1 release. They initially discussed the idea of multiplayer in Shadowgun in October of 2011.

By now, you've probably at least heard about The Big Android BBQ. It's big, because it's in Texas. It's about Android, because we probably wouldn't post about it otherwise. There's BBQ, because who doesn't love BBQ?

What you may not know about the BBQ is that this is its third year as a thing. Like most other events, it gets better with age, and this year should be the best one yet.

Before we go any further, let me say that this post will contain zero references to replacement referees. Okay? Everybody got that? Good. Just after the long, long-awaited Jelly Bean update for Verizon's Galaxy Nexus, the carrier has finally updated its exclusive NFL Mobile app for Android 4.1. They've also added compatibility with "high-resolution devices", though looking through Verizon's current lineup it's hard to think what they could mean by that.

If downloading source code and picking through lines of code is something you enjoy doing, then today is a day of gifts: Samsung just released not one, but two different kernel source codes. I can almost feel your excitement.

First up, the GSIII. The international variant (i9300) was recently updated to Jelly Bean, and Samsung just made available the respective kernel source. So, if you've been waiting on that, it's ready for you.
