Some Logitech Revue retail units sold with bricked firmware

Google TV has taken a beating in the last few months, especially Logitech's flagship Revue set top box. To add insult to injury, GTV Source reports that a considerable number of users who recently bought the Revue found that it couldn't authenticate with Google's servers, making the device a curvy and expensive paperweight. Apparently the issue is only happening to newer Revue boxes, though that's hardly a comfort to those affected.

Archos G9 tablets receiving another firmware update

The recently released Archos G9 tablets have only been on the market a short period and they are already receiving a few firmware updates from Archos. It's nice to see them working so quickly to bring updates to their tablets and we can only hope the same applies for Ice Cream Sandwich. The Archos 80 G9 went on sale last month and received its first OTA firmware update early this month. Today Archos informed us another just 14 days later is available now for download.

Samsung Galaxy S II updated: Swype swiftness, auto-brightness fix

Samsung's Galaxy S II may be fresh to the market, but that hasn't stopped the company's engineers from pushing out updates. In fact, we've seen two firmware updates arrive through Samsung's Kies app in short order, bringing the GSII up to i9100XWKE2. The first left Swype more responsive and apparently also addressed some connectivity issues, while the second fixed the Galaxy S II's automatic brightness. The firmware is also rootable, which is good news for those looking forward to all the third-party hacks we're promised. You'll need to hook your Galaxy S II up to Kies in order to download the update - we've tried through the smartphone's onboard firmware update tool, and it can't find any new builds. Let us know how you get on in the comments, and if you're still on the fence regarding the GSII then check out our full review!
