Google Fires Back At AT&T CEO’s Claim That Google Holds Back Android Updates, Plays Favorites.

Yesterday AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson made a pretty bold (and idiotic) claim that it is Google holding back Android updates on pretty much every AT&T device more often than not, specifically saying: “Google determines what platform gets the newest releases and when.

Android 4.0 ICS is all about on-screen input, so much so in fact that Google moved the dedicated navigation keys onto the screen negating the need for physical buttons (despite many manufacturers still using them).

Rovio Announces 2011 Results: 648 Million Downloads, $106 Million In Sales.

Rovio’s Angry Birds is perhaps one of most iconic games of the mobile generation. Just a couple short years ago it entered the market. And already it is a massive brand that has escaped the typical small screen of mobile devices and turned into a full-fledged phenomenon that includes not only games, but branded food, clothing, an upcoming cartoon and plenty more.
