Asus has been particularly upbeat about Windows 8 over the past few months. In the runup to Windows 8's launch in October, the Taiwanese company had prepared a bevy of devices -- from touch screens, convertibles, and "transformer" devices where a keyboard can click to the device -- in a bid to take full advantage of the operating system. Seemingly going full-force into the Windows space, an Asus executive recently dropped hints that the company was "interested" in pursuing developing a Windows Phone.
Again, that wasn't necessarily a bad decision: if Google exerted as much top-down control as Apple when trying to get Android off the ground, those carriers and handset makers might not have been as willing to play ball, That could have set the adoption of non-Apple smart wireless devices back a few years, The decision was a pragmatic one, in that Google knew full well that wireless tokyo nights / memories of green / blade runner vibes / cyberpunk / liam wong iphone case carriers have always wanted tight-fisted control over what runs on their networks, but it needed their support to make Android a viable option for those who didn't want to play Apple's game..
Oh, and it'll be the slimmest LTE 4G handset yet. While that doesn't mean much for us Brits, as 4G is still years away for us, anything slim sounds good to us. Motorola teased us with a head-spinning video earlier in the week, with a razor blade popping up and hinting that it'll resurrect the Razr line for this handset. That would mean it's going to be pretty special indeed, as for years the Razr was its flagship line -- and of course was also extremely slim. A mere seven hours after the Motorola launch, at 3am UK time Wednesday morning, Google and Samsung are holding another event unveiling Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest incarnation of the Google OS. We're also hoping to see the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which promises to have a gargantuan 4.6-inch screen that's 720p HD, and should prove a more than worthy adversary for the new Droid Razr.

Also, I wish there were more ways to listen to songs--there's no queuing, for instance, so if you select a new song it interrupts your currently playing selection. But you can shuffle songs by album or artist, as well as all songs in your library. And I was very impressed by the integration of album art throughout the app, something that a lot of other services can't seem to get right. This free app lets you stream audio and video files from your home computer to your iPhone or iPad. Streaming music from your PC to your phone is a nice alternative to music locker services like MP3Tunes and mSpot, which require you to upload your music to a server on the Internet before you can access it on your phone. Simplify Media had a great iPhone app that performed this function, but Google bought the company earlier this year--presumably to integrate it into some sort of future music service for Android--and discontinued the iPhone app. I've been looking for a viable replacement ever since.
