Motorola Doesn't Like ICS

I'm a big fan of ICS on my Nexus S - and while it's getting a bit long in the tooth, the phone runs great with this latest OS.  Motorola has been slow on releasing updates and have now released a statement saying that Android 4.0 makes some phones worse and that's why they are delaying the updates.  You can't blame them for not wanting to ruin the customer experience, but I do get their point.  CNET has more info.

"We work very closely with Google and cell phone carriers for every software update," Motorola says. "And obviously we want the new release to improve our devices. If we determine that can't be done -- well then, we're not able to upgrade that particular device."

Cooling Collection

If you live in a part of the world where it's warming up, you may want to starting thinking about the summer heat and the issues you may face if you picked up a new Ivy Bridge CPU.  Below are some cooling options that may help you out.

App Attack

If you enjoy your apps as much as we do, you'll be interested to see that you can now snag an app that will let you know when you're subjecting yourself to high levels of radiation.  Um, ok.  Maybe you'd rather rock out with your iPhone/Guitar?  Check it out.  gTar for the iPhone.

Not all apps are free and even paid apps may be cheaper than "free" ones.  CNET looks at in-App purchases and some "freemium" apps and tells how some companies get it right, while others do not.

Console Leaks

Details leak on next-gen console releases.  It appears that the next-Xbox won't be released until 4th quarter 2013 with the PS4 won't be landing until 2014- according to a leak in some legal documents detailing Activision and Bungie details.  

Potentially more interesting in the Activision/Bungie paperwork is the first reference of a PS4 title. A game called Comet #2 has been listed for a launch window of 2016, with “Comet #1″ planned for release in 2014 on the PS3.

Bits of Bits

As we wrap up the hardware news for the day, we have a few bits and bytes to share.

Car Canon

If you've ever fired a potato gun, a t-shirt canon or even shot a spitball through a straw, you've enjoyed some pneumatic powered projectile action.  Check out this canon that actually fires cars.  Yup, cars.

HTC One X-cellent!

If you are looking for a new gadget to carry you through the summer, the HTC OneX reviewed over at HardwareHeaven is a pretty decent choice.  It comes out of the box with a Tegra 3 multi-core processor, 32GB of storage and a great screen.  If you simply can't wait for the Galaxy S III, check it out.

The One X is shown above and it has an interesting black and white design with the main body being made with polycarbonate. The handset features a 4.7" Capacitive multi touch screen which uses Super IPS LCD2 technology. It has a 720x1280 resolution with 312ppi density and uses curved Corning Gorilla Glass.

Microsoft's Social Network

Microsoft joins the social network party.  Yup.  That's just what we need.  Another Microsoft product that is late - again.  The good news is that it offers nothing new, doesn't integrate well with your iPhone or Android and probably won't work in Ford/Microsofts MyTouch/Sync.  Enjoy.  Or Not. 

At the very least you should check it out.  Head on over to so.cl (pronounced "social") for all the wonder.
