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

    Android has become too big for it to be just limited onto Google hardware. This would be a monumental loss for Google if they were to make it strictly a Nexus line OS.

    The only credible source I would believe with this news is if it were coming from Google themselves
