Pulse News is currently rolling out their latest update to the masses. (That would be us.) This release will bring some much needed supported for articles written in international characters as Pulse previously sometimes jumbled things up a bit on that front. It also includes some bug fixes for tablets, if you’ve been having issues with that. Personally, I’ve not seen any issues with tablet mode, but apparently enough users have to [Read More...]
The LG Optimus Vu has appeared in a picture next to the Samsung Galaxy Note, giving us all a great side by side look at the next phablet to hit the pipeline. As we can see from the picture, the Vu’s overall size is pretty close to the Note, meaning both are big, bold, and in your face. The 5.3-inch Note is slightly taller than the [Read More...]

If you’re the proud owner of either a Nook Color, Nook Tablet or Kindle Fire who also happens to own a WordPress blog you might have been a little bummed out when you found the app was not available for your device(s).

This week the Google Wallet team was surprised when two different vulnerabilities were discovered. One hack revealed a user’s PIN number on a rooted phone and the other allowed anyone to reset the PIN and gain access to funds on a Google Wallet prepaid card.
Google quickly responded to the first hack by saying users should not use Google Wallet on a rooted device, and late last night they also responded [Read More...]
A tablet resting on the desk? That’s cool. A tablet propped-up at angles more conducive to you viewing on your desk? That’s much more desirable. That’s also what you’ll get with the [Read More...]
LG just sent out the invite for their Mobile World Congress press event which promises to let us “discover LG’s new revolutionary smartphones.” Those are pretty big claims, but the three devices we are expecting from LG could deliver. Read on for the full details of the rumored devices.
The LG X3 was first revealed last month and [Read More...]
Want to feel even more awkward and self-conscious making calls on your Galaxy Note in public? Why not pick up the upcoming “berry pink” version of Samsung’s 5.3-inch monster. It’s reportedly launching internationally during the ninth week of the year — that’s last week of February (or “crazy week” as we like to call it around here).

According to this screen shot sent through the Android Central app, AT&T’s getting ready to double it this Sunday, Feb. 12, from $ 18 to $ 36. That’s not a whole lot of money, we suppose, but it’s still 100 percent higher than what it is currently, and nobody likes paying more.
