Looking for a new tech toy for a great price? You’ve come to the right place! Our Top Deal today is the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III for only $0. Pity the poor Wii U. Such a nice, innovative machine with such little software support. Its doom is being spelled out across the dank corridors of the interwebs. Analytics site App Annie released a report today that confirmed Nintendo and Sony’s greatest fears, mobile gaming app revenue had lapped their sales twice. Tech site, The Verge reported today that an updated Xbox 360 dashboard UI is in the works. While a Microsoft spokesperson declined to comment, the Verge story reports changes to the Dashboard UI and Live Tiles to coincide with the new Xbox being unveiled on the 21st, and changes in Windows 8. Samsung announced today that it is updating TecTiles, its programmable NFC tags, to version 2. The latest version of the TecTiles will work with the Galaxy S 4, as well as older NFC-equipped Samsung phones. At the end of April, Samsung announced a new Galaxy tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. A new leaked press photo from SamMobile shows that Samsung is also planning an 8-inch version of the device, dubbed the Galaxy Tab 3 8. Good news for Apple as the company’s iOS 6 software just received clearance from the United States Defense Department. HTC’s supply issues with its flagship smartphone the HTC One are seemingly coming to an end. According to a report from Focus Taiwan, HTC’s North Asian president Jack Tong stated that HTC will be doubling production of the HTC One this month to keep up with the strong demand for the device. Something we’ve always admired about Sony is that it’s embraced AOSP for its devices more than many manufacturers around, and it’s adding another device to that list. The Galaxy S4 launched in late April and has become the fastest selling smartphone in Samsung’s history.
