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

    Google gave all 5000 attendees of Google I/O today their very own-white backed, super-thin (thinner than an iPad2), limited edition Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It comes with Android 3.0, but it will receive the 3.1 update within a couple weeks. There are already reports of someone putting their Google I/O LE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 up on eBay, with bids starting around $960. Below you can check out an AndroidPolice link that shares a bunch of comparison pics between the Samsung device and the Motorola Xoom. The Xoom seems very bulky in comparison.

    Now, I'm wishing I had been able to go to Google I/O! How about you guys?

    No, tickets are $400. However, they might go for that much after they sell out.
