HTC Amaze 4G against the iPhone 4S in a one-on-one battle to the death to the end of Round 1.
Galaxy Nexus. (We suppose it's set in the future or something.) Demonstrating remarkable technical awareness, not to mention no small amount of rhythm and/or blues, they pass the time with a mobile beatbox session.
Reports suggest revenues of $9.03 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, an increase of 32% compared to the second quarter of 2010. I pretty large increase over the $6.82 billion earned for the second three months of 2010. GAAP net income was $2.51 billion, up from $1.84 billion in Q2 2010 and the numbers are increasing this way basically across the board. Things are good over at Googleville.Google-owned sites generated huge revenues of $6.23 billion, or 69% of total revenues, in the second quarter of 2011. This represents a 39% increase over second quarter 2010 revenues of $4.50 billion.Showing that Google-owned sites accumulate around 70% of the total revenues, I guess this is why they want everyone clicking on ads, and hitting that +1 button for Google+ these days. I wont get down to all the details because you can check out the earning via the source link below if you want to be jealous. They do mention that their Cash and cash equivalents adds up to over $39 billion, yes I said billion.

Dell Streak needed to successfully quash the iPad? A bizarre "Dell Streak Man Project" advert has turned up for the Japanese market, in what we're guessing is meant to imply that the Streak hybrid smartphone/tablet helps organize you into an efficient android machine. Along the way, though, it comes across more than a little like those impromptu dances sometimes held in the middle of shopping centers, complete with bemused onlookers watching from the sidelines. As you can see at one point, too, the Streak itself isn't actually turned on. Still, it's memorably - albeit in an odd way - and that's generally a good thing in adverts. Airing in Japan this month, we'll have to wait and see what, if anything, it does for sales of the Streak there. [via Twitter]
