Verizon details new unlimited talk and text prepaid plan for $80

This morning Verizon has announced another new price and offering for the prepaid plan folks. The new plan is 3G only and is a prepaid, contract free, and is offering unlimited talk and text, along with 1GB of data for a low price of just $80 a month. It might not be the best deal around but it's not bad considering data alone starts at $30 for Verizon's regular plans.

SiriusXM update adds 5 hour music buffer

I was a subscriber to the original XM Radio back in the day, and while it was certainly worlds away from terrestrial radio service, I was still bugged by gaps in playback when going under bridges or in parking garages and by the lack of a CD-style rewind button. 4G connections have taken care of the former issue, and a new app update seems to have addressed the latter. The latest update to the SiriusXM Internet Radio app adds an incredible 5-hour music or talk buffer for most of the channels that the service offers.

Verizon’s Droid Does TV campaign returns

American Android aficionados will remember Verizon's Droid Does campaign fondly: it kicked off with Motorola's original DROID and was instrumental in giving Android a leg up on iOS in the United States in 2009. While the Droid Does campaign continued with the likes of the HTC DROID Incredible and others, it seemed to disappear from the airwaves once Verizon got its hands on the iPhone 4. Now it's back, showing off the DROID 4, DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX from Motorola.

Microsoft pays $300m for a stake in Barnes & Noble’s ebooks

Business makes some strange bedfellows, and somewhere in the patent suit that Microsoft lobbed at Barnes & Noble a corporate romance bloomed. Now the Redmond software giant has invested a whopping $300 million into the bookseller's newly formed digital and college division, which will almost certainly take over the growing Nook e-reader business. Microsoft will own 17.6% of the unnamed subsidiary, with Barnes & Noble owning the other 82.4% (virtual value: $1.4 billion).

KegDroid dispenses beer via NFC tags

Why would you combine an Android tablet, an Arduino board, a keg of beer and a tap? If you asked Google employee Paul Cariff, he'd probably retort with, "Why not?" His latest masterpiece, the KegDroid, uses a Motorola XOOM connected with a tiny electronic controller to both secure and properly dispense what made Milwaukee famous. Naturally, it's all encased in a display that shows off everyone's favorite little green robot.

Android Open Kang Project reaches Milestone 5

If you're a prolific ROM flasher and you've got a Galaxy Nexus or another recent Android device, odds are pretty good that you've at least tried Android Open Kang Project (AOKP), one of the fastest-growing family of custom ROMs out there. The project has released over 30 builds since its inception late last year, and is now on Milestone 5. This doesn't mean much beyond the fact that they've reached a point where enough new features have been added to justify upgrading for those who don't flash nightlies as a habit. You can see the release notes and downloads for dozens of devices here.
