Andy Rubin, the lead of Android, has been replaced by the head of Chrome and Google Apps Sundar Pichai. What does this mean for Android and Google? We don't know...but we're hoping for some Google branded jetpacks soon.
Berryboot makes it easy to add multiple Raspberry Pi distributions to one SD card. Give it a go if you want to try out lots of Pi distros.
Randy wants know if he'll be able to tell the difference between 720P and 1080P on a small screen. THX has a good chart on viewing distance, and this graphic is great for figuring out if you'll be able to see the difference between resolutions. But go with 1080p anyway.
Paul was wondering what the "other" connection on the MHL cable was when we showed it off. Basically, for any non-MHL enabled tv sets you need a separate USB cable to power the adapter. We show off what a straight MHL passive cable looks like to give a comparison between the two.
