Quite a busy day today in the world of Android (just the way I like it). For all those stories that pass by our desk, we don’t always get to feature them on the front page. Rather than throw them in the dumpster of the internets, we bring them to you here — in the Android Overload. This can always be your place to turn to when you need a midnight snack or just want to make sure no Android news gets left behind. So have it and if you find something of interest, don’t be shy and leave your thoughts in the comments. Cheers!
