Hello again, everyone. You’ve managed to wander into what we like to call, the Android Overload. Being that it’s impossible for us to write up every article that passes by our desks, we’ve got the ‘ol AO to take car of that problem. It’s here we gather all these stories into a hodge podge of Android/mobile news for you to dig through and find something of interest. I personally found the Facebook article a particularly good read. How about you?
