In the (seemingly) never-ending race to offer LTE, U.S. Cellular has just announced a fairly major expansion to its 4G LTE network that will take place over the course of 2013. By the time the end of the year rolls around, the company expects to offer LTE to 87 percent of its customers, which is a 26 percent increase over its current network.

At the current time, the company is being a little vague about exactly which cities are going to get LTE coverage, citing only that "select cities in California, Kansas and Nebraska" will gain the ultra-fast connection, with specific mention of "Lincoln, Neb., Omaha, Neb., Manhattan, Kan., Eureka, Calif.

Google Now Heading To Chrome In The Future, 'Skeleton' Framework Already In Place

I hope you like Google Now, because it looks like this product is here to stay for a long time. As we speak, Chrome developers are working on bringing Popular Science's Innovation of the Year to the desktop, instead of keeping it trapped just on your phone or tablet. As it turns out, a "skeleton" framework is already in place for the search product to move in.

Google's not being shy about the existence of this product, but also isn't in a hurry to announce it, either:

Google confirmed that it's working on the project, but stopped short of committing to it.
