Android App Pick - Rdio

We have just posted up our 50th App Pick of the Week and this week we bring your Rdio.  This is a subscription-based music service that resembles Zune in terms of function and social features.  They have a pretty decent library and you can check it all out in our pick - and start a free 7 day trial!  Enjoy!

Rdio 

Please post your thoughts, comments, questions and suggestions for next week's Android App Pick of the Week!


Android Action

If you want to get on the Android bandwagon, a couple of devices I recommend are the Samsung Galaxy Note and the ASUS Nexus 7 Tablet.  Both of these are being reviewed at TweakTown today.  While the Galaxy Note may be a little on the large size for a phone for most people, the screen, performance and features of this device make it worth considering at least.  In terms of the Nexus 7 tablet.  It's a quad-core tablet for $199.  Enough said.

I will note that I personally use a Samsung Galaxy S II as my everyday phone and a third-generation Apple iPad as my tablet. So using a smartphone that measures in a 5.3 inches would be quite interesting. The Galaxy S II has a screen size of 4.3 inches, so I'm already used to a "˜bigger' phone than the industry benchmark that is Apple's iPhone.


Cooling Collection


Real Portal Turret

I would so love to be able to commission and buy things from the WETA workshop.  Valve just took delivery of a life-size replica portal turret.  It looks awesome!


DDR3 Roundup

DDR4 is on the horizon, but for now if you want fast RAM you'll have to snag something like the Corsair Dominator Platinum CL10 2666MHz kit reviewed at TechPowerUpeTeknix has the 2133MHz version of this kit on their bench, while HiTechLegion has the 1600MHz mainstream kit from Corsair.

Also at eTeknix is the Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3 1866Mhz 8GB kit.  This kit is probably one of the most ideal kits of RAM for a "mainstream enthusiast".  It's big enough and fast enough to be really useful - but not overkill or overly expensive.


Facebook Beta Launches Mobile Ad Network

If you are looking for another reason to leave Facebook, you may want to consider leaving.  They have just launched a beta version of their new mobile ad network - so the one way you could almost enjoy Facebook (mobile) will now become as horrible, lame and congested as the desktop version.  TechCruch has a few more details.

Starting later today, you may start seeing banner and interstitial ads targeted by your Facebook biographical and social data within non-Facebook mobile iOS and Android apps plus mobile websites where you’ve authenticated with Facebook.


PSU Roundup


Hot Wheels - World Record Corkscrew Jump

Would you really try this?  I think I'd pass.

I love how the ramps look like the ones you get in your Hot Wheels kit though.


iPhone 5 Review

The iPhone 5 is officially launched this Friday, but that hasn't stopped a few press from getting an early sample and taking a look at it.  Engadget has their review posted and while I think it's pretty objective for the most part, you can tell the author is a bit of a fanboi.  Take a look and see what they think.

Image quality is still among the best out there for a cameraphone, unimproved but quite impressive in varying conditions. What has improved, though, is the speed. Tap that big ol' thumb as quick as you can and the iPhone 5 will keep up, whereas the iPhone 4S eventually fell behind. It's at least on par with the Galaxy Nexus, which also has a ridiculously quick shooter.
