Instagram has recently shared news about how Thanksgiving has once again proven to be a busy day for them. News along these lines is certainly not going to do anything to help those who think Instagram is all about sharing pictures of your meals. But that aside, the Instagram team has said they "saw record usage as Instagrammers shared a heaping helping of holiday cheer."

Kit Kat updates has begun. This time, according to details coming from the @HTCUSA Twitter account, the Android 4.4 rollout has begun for Unlocked and Developer Editions of the HTC One. With the Google Play edition having gotten the Kit Kat update last week, this sort of rounds things out for the special editions.
Kickstarter period came to an end. The folks at Omate have made some unpopular announcements in the weeks since the funding has come to a close, notably, about how the watch would not include the Play Store. On the positive side though, despite seeing delays, Omate does seem to be keeping those backers informed of what is going on.
Xiaomi has been pushing devices in flash sales lately. Details of these sales have been popping up from time to time and it looks like word of another has arrived. This latest had Xiaomi selling 150,000 of the Mi3 smartphone in just under 10 minutes time. While those numbers are comparable to what we have seen from other sales, there was an interesting twist this time around.
French carrier SFR suggesting Android 4.4 Kit Kat was heading to the LG G2 in December.

voluntarily pulled from the Google Play Store earlier in the week. While disappointing to see, it was said the Installer managed to get "hundred of thousands" of downloads in the time it was available. If nothing else, that suggests a decent amount of users are interested in running Cyanogen, but want an easier path to installation.
NVIDIA is trying to further tempt those who have been considering picking up a SHIELD game system.

Pebble smartwatch has been expanding over time. And as of today, it looks like the smartwatch has arrived with yet another retailer. The latest is Amazon and they have the watch available in two colors and as a Prime eligible item.
Verizon has added a new color for the DROID ULTRA and DROID MINI handsets. As of today, both handsets are available in white. This new white model joins the previously available black and red and is basically, the same handsets, just in a new color. Simply put, the pricing and the specs each remain the same as had been.
Lenovo unveiled a pair of tablets a few weeks earlier. This was the Yoga Tablet lineup and it included an 8-inch and 10-inch variant. Or perhaps better remembered, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet may be better known for two things -- the unique design and the bit about how they were announced with celebrity endorsement. That celebrity was Ashton Kutcher and while the Yoga Tablet lineup has an interesting look, we must admit we were pleasantly surprised when we pulled these out of the box and began playing.
