1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The folks on the CyanogenMode team have been really working quick. Their custom CM9 version of ICS already supports the U.S. Samsung Galaxy S III before it even launches in the United States. Of course, it shouldn't be too surprising to find out that CM9 is out for the phone considering two very important key details. One, the international version of the phone has been out for a while now. Two, Steve "Cyanogen" Kondik actually works as a software developer for Samsung now. Yep, it's pretty safe to say he has an insider track. :)

    Here's a link below at XDA to the CM9 nightly builds, and here is a quote with some details about what CM9 adds, and what still doesn't work quite right yet:

    I really, really hope the Verizon version will get official support!
