Google Play Store. Now, Google's application store show Google+ profile photos and names on reviews, so no longer can users hide behind some made up user name. Google rolled out a similar feature on YouTube where users could opt to use their real name from Google+ when uploading videos, and now that same feature has arrived on Google Play.

Lenovo’s P770 smartphone might not be the fastest, most powerful device around, but it does have some good things going for it. It has a stylish design, and it's on par with most mid-range smartphones in terms of how it runs. Just when you think you're looking at another standard mid-level phone, you notice the massive 3,500mAh battery. That's 29 hours of talk time.
Apple and Samsung would be allowed to add more devices to the existing lawsuit against each other. Recently, in an effort to keep the companies from starting a new suits, a judge ruled that the two companies could add more devices to the suit. Well Apple has jumped at the chance adding a bunch of new Samsung devices that it claims are infringing.
Cyber Monday. Amazon is one of the leaders for saving money on Cyber Monday, and it is offering the Kindle Fire for only $129 on Cyber Monday. If you don't want the "Special Offer" subsidized model, it will cost $144, which is still a savings.
Facebook has primarily provided its employees with iPhones. Presumably, this is why the iPhone app works better than the Android one, and why it receives many more new features through updates. Of course, as an Android user, you are probably well aware of how lacking the Facebook app is for Google's OS.
Samsung Galaxy Note II. In fact, it just surpassed 5,000,000 in sales worldwide. Two million of those sales have come in under a month. Samsung only just announced that the device has passed three million, and in a matter of weeks, it's added another two million units.
Black Friday is a day dedicated to deals. Shoppers wander around in a turkey induced stupor looking to grab insane deals for themselves and loved ones. Well, you can actually get some good savings without walking out of your house and braving the crowds thanks to generous app creators on Google Play. The popular keyboard application known as SwiftKey 3 is available for 50% off for Black Friday. Who doesn't love saving money and getting an awesome application at the same time?
Three in the UK. The carrier just announced that the Nexus 4 is coming to the UK-based wireless carrier on December 13. If you're in the UK waiting for the Nexus 4, that wait it coming to an end. Three is offering the device on a contract and prepaid option. Options are always a good thing, and Three is taking care of its customers in that regard.
Nexus 4, according to the guys at XDA-Developers. Sadly, it only works in Canada, so the rest us are left out of this one. If you are in Canada, by simply entering a code hidden away in the phone you can LTE speeds. It almost seems too easy, but multiple users in Canada have tried it, and are showing data speeds that are right on par with you would expect to see from a 4G connected phone.
