Default Razor's RSS Watering Hole

Hello everyone! As the denizens of the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S III Watering Holes know, I like to put together news link posts from various well-known and some lesser known tech and gaming blogs each day as a service to my AndroidForums friends. Recently it was suggested that I make a dedicated thread for these compilations, so here we are! I invite anyone to comment here on any items posted, I'd love to have lively daily discussions about news developments.

I also run a little tech blog where I put up these roundups along with lots of other posts, it's called Call to the Bullpen. Anyone is more than welcome to follow the blog and its pages on various social media networks.

All previous roundup posts (search):


In the OP here, I'll keep a link to the most current news post so that it won't get lost:
Thursday, October 11, 2012

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy!
