Full Tilt Set To Launch Real-Money Rush Poker App

[Breaking] T-Mobile G2 OTA Update Shows Up, Brings Native Tethering And WiFi Calling

I was about to go to sleep, but, of course, when I heard of a possible G2 OTA report, and one that brings such important new features as WiFi calling, otherwise known as UMA, and native tethering, I had to stay up just a bit longer.
