Wacky day, wacky day. Today was full of apologies, hints at the future, and olive branches offered at the brink of all-out Android war. Take peeks at the oncoming wave of superphones coming out more than likely in the middle of next month at Mobile World Congress, see the phones that never will be (Sony much?), and get some sassy updates for the phones you've already got.

Nexus S Equipped Man Trapped Under Vending Machine for Days

It's unclear whether the following series is actually officially affiliated with Google or if it's a fun project done by a fan, but what is clear is that these ad spots are awesome and hilarious.

On the other hand, both publications say they do have a direct line to LG - which I don't think is too far out of reality to be true, so let's listen in!
