Samsung Galaxy S III

For those of you with a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III in your hands, Sprint has noted that a software update will soon be pushed (if it hasn't been already) to your device. The update labeled as software version L710VPLF9 is only showing as being a security update for the device so it appears there may not be any other bugs squashing happening but as we know it, not all changes tend to get listed so you'll have to give it a go and then let us know if you spot anything else. Did you get the update yet? Drop a note in the comments or in the Android Central forums if you did and want to talk about it.

Galaxy Nexus

Apple … blah blah blah … Google … blah blah blah … Patent … blah blah blah … Search … blah blah blah … Banned … Blah blah blah.

Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a shit. Lawyers are doing what lawyers are wont to do. This is only growing more ridiculous with each passing day.

In fact, here's how much I don't care. We're going to give away another Galaxy Nexus right here, right now. Because despite this ruling, they're still shipping. It's just lawyers being lawyers.

Here's how to win: Leave a comment in this post about how messed up all this patent nonsense is. We'll pick a winner by noon EST Saturday, June 30. Everyone's invited. Not just in the U.S.

Here are a few links about today's news, if you still wanna read more: ReutersFOSS Patents

Plight of the Zombie

Although I'm not normally a fan of games that require me to think a lot, a new puzzle game named Plight of the Zombie has me rather engaged at the moment. In it, you must figure out how to collect as many brains as possible all while trying to avoid getting killed by those blasted uninfected humans.

  • Play over 30 deliciously brainy puzzles
  • Support a savory cause by helping end zombie hunger
  • Appetizing store with plenty of tasteful accessories for your zombies
  • It’s free! Some people say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. We beg to differ…

Plan your route, grab some brains and move on to the next level. If you get stuck, you can optionally purchase items to help get you past the harder levels but it's more fun trying to get past them the old school way. Plight of the Zombie is available now for free in the Google Play Store. You can jump below to check out the game trailer and grab the download.

RAZR MAXX

If you're in the market for a new Android phone, Best Buy will be putting the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX on sale for two-days (June 29 and 30) at just $180 with a new agreement. While other phones have come along that may have better specs or fancy new features, the RAZR MAXX has that 3300 mAh battery to keep running long after all other LTE phones have bit the dust. It's an impressive beast, and we still recommend it to folks on Verizon who need a dependable Android phone. 

Thanks, anon!
