    Jelly Bean update for AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket now available

    We’ve witnessed AT&T deliver a very fresh Android experience to a number of Samsung’s galactic handsets in the past few months, but we definitely won’t complain when others get the same treatment — even if it is slightly overdue. Available now via Kies, this Jelly Bean upgrade will give Galaxy S II Skyrocket owners what will likely be a much welcomed boost, including new features such as Smart Stay, Direct Call and Pop Up Play. Of course, the aforementioned tidbits are only part of the bigger Mountain View picture, since the new version means automatic access to Google Now and overall under-the-hood enhancements thanks to things like Project Butter. It’s here, it’s real, and it’s ready to rejuvenate your device — all you have to do is pay our source link a visit, where you’ll find specific instructions on how to get the goods.

  • LinkedIn acquires Pulse news reader for $90 million

    LinkedIn acquires Pulse news reader for $90 million

    LinkedIn has been pretty clearly repositioning itself as a source for news as of late, and it’s now made that shift even clearer with a fairly major acquisition. The company announced today that it has acquired Pulse, maker of news reader apps for mobile devices (in addition to a web-based offering) at a cost of some $90 million. In its own blog post announcing the news, Pulse says that its apps will remain as they are for now, although they will now offer a “LinkedIn Influencer” feed featuring the company’s hand-picked contributors. According to Pulse, its apps currently have over 30 million users around the globe, with approximately 40 percent of those outside the US; for its part, LinkedIn recently topped 200 million users.

  • Samsung Series 9 Premium with Intel Core i7 and 1080p display available now for $1,400

    Samsung Series 9

    Last month, Samsung outed an update to the 13-inch Series 9 that saw its 1,600 x 900 LCD display replaced with the glory of full 1080p. And starting today, that Windows 8 Ultrabook is going on sale with pretty much the same internal configuration it had in a previous, less Premium life — save for the 2GHz Core i7 inside. For a cool $1,400, you’re looking at 4GB of RAM, an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU, WiFi a/b/g/n and a 128GB SSD all neatly packed into an aluminum unibody design. So, you can do your eyes a favor (and your wallet some significant damage) by trading up now. Or stick with what you’ve got. Don’t worry, if they don’t ask, you don’t have to tell Intel.

  • English Premier League to adopt goal-line technology next season, Hawk-Eye to be the provider

    English Premier League to adopt goalline technology next season, HawkEye to be the provider

    Football’s ruling body, FIFA, has already decided that goal-line technology will be used at next year’s World Cup in Brazil, which, in and of itself, was an indirect nod for other competitions to follow suit. Today, one of the globe’s biggest leagues announced it too will implement the recently approved tech in its matches, with the Premier League letting it be known that the 2013-2014 season is set to be the first to adopt the new system. Speaking of which, the Football Association decided to go with Hawk-Eye, a technology currently present in professional sports like tennis and cricket — one that provides seven fast-frame shooters around the two goals and uses software to quickly analyze if the ball indeed crossed the line. For the football (soccer) faithful, it’s been along time coming, so here’s hoping this makes the game less prone to errors. After all, Howard Webb and Mike Dean need all they help they can get.
