NASA launching more PhoneSats into space

One thing is for certain: you can’t stop science. NASA has sent another small satellite into space, and this one is made from Nexus S parts. They’ve done this before with great interest and success, but this one has a few tweaks under the hood to make it even more interesting. This time, we’ll get the chance to listen in.

TextNow launches prepaid IP-based mobile service plans

TextNow has expanded from being an app that offered WiFi based calling and messaging to a standalone service. This is arriving as a no-contract setup and will be using the existing TextNow SMS and voice infrastructure. Well, that along with a 3G network for times when you are outside of a WiFi connection. Of course, perhaps the bigger story here is the pricing -- service begins at $19 per month.

After being left to wonder if Android 4.1 Jelly Bean would actually come to the Nexus S, it seems that Google has begun the roll out. Unfortunately, for the moment it seems that only some carriers are getting the update, so some Nexus S owners may be left waiting for a while. In any case, Google announced via the Nexus Twitter account today that the update roll out has started, so at least we know that it's underway.

NSA releases ultra-secure open source Android derivative

Rejoice, paranoid security fanatics! There's finally a version of Android that enables your obsessive need to lock and control each and every file on your mobile device. There's just one catch: you've got to trust the National Security Agency to use it. The NSA has released its security-enhanced version of Android, named SE Android... because G-men have slightly less imagination than your average sea sponge. You can download the source code now and compile it on any operating system you want, so long as you want to compile it on Fedora Linux. Other operating systems should work, but haven't been tested.

Android 4.0.3 delayed for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S

Google's highly anticipated Android 4.0.3 update will finally bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the Nexus S, and hopefully fix a few bugs concerning the Galaxy Nexus battery life. It has been a real problem getting a full day of use on a single charge with Verizon's Galaxy Nexus - even with the extended battery. The update to ICS for the Nexus S has almost been perfected, unofficially of course, so those that are rooted may not see much of a difference. Unfortunately, the update has been flagged for further review.
