Verizon is being forced by the FCC to pay a fine for apparently blocking their users from accessing third-party tethering apps. As is the case with most of these FCC fines, the $1.25 million settlement amount is chump change to a company as huge as Verizon, but it's more about the message the FCC sends to companies than it is about the money.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 is finally getting Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich starting today. While it's been available with CM9 for months and months, this is the official update from Samsung themselves. According to SamMobile it started rolling out to the WiFi model today in the UK and Italy.
Kickstarter for OUYA wraps up! Are you getting excited? Square Enix apparently is, as the company has announced a version of Final Fantasy III for OUYA.
