Some Iconia Tab A500s getting Ice Cream Sandwich early, Acer Ring is MIA

Some Iconia Tab A500s getting Ice Cream Sandwich early, Acer Ring is MIA

Last week, Acer announced that Ice Cream Sandwich would make its way to Iconia Tabs A100 and A500 in Canada and the US starting April 27th, but Phone Arena reports that some owners of the 10.1-inch A500 are getting the option to update a day ahead of schedule. If you're one of the lucky few to be in on the early upgrade, you should be ready to rock with Android 4.0.3 after a 30-minute install. The one potential downside to getting ICS ahead of time? You'll have to wait for the Acer Ring hub, which didn't make the cut for this update.

Samsung's 17-inch Series 7 Chronos dances over the Ivy Bridge

Samsung's 17-inch Series 7 Chronos dances over the Ivy Bridge

Since Ivy Bridge finally trotted down the yellow brick road, there's been a growing number of tin-men waiting for their hearts. Samsung's 17-inch Series 7 Chronos, it seems, was also a member of that club. We first saw the desktop replacement back at CES, and that "next-gen" processor we reported is confirmed as a 2.3GHz i7 3615QM, while the suspected ATI GPU seems to have been switched out for an NVIDIA GeForce 650M. Memory and storage are taken care of by 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB SATA HDD respectively. For your human inputs, that 17.3-inch (1920 x 1080) non-reflective screen will fill your eyes, while JBL speakers take care of your ears. As for the computer's, there's HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports, a pair of standard USB ports and a memory card slot, not forgetting the Blu-ray drive too -- if you like things optical. If this is enough to make you put your desktop to sleep, then get ready to lay down the (to be determined) asking price once it's set free from the Witch's castle factory (at some point in the near future).

Line2 for iOS now offers MMS support within its network, adds location sharing

Line2 for iOS now offers MMS support within its network, adds location sharing feature

One of your favorite, dock-worthy iOS apps just got a tad bit better. We're talking 'bout Line2, who's just hit version 8.0.0 and is bringing with it a slew of long-awaited traits. Of these, the most notable is the inclusion of MMS, which now allows users to send out pics to other folks using Line2's service. That said, you can share media with people outside the Line2 network, but due to carrier restrictions, the MMS being sent will only show up as a link on the receiving end. To go alongside that Multimedia Messaging Service, the app's also adding a new location sharing feature (for those who don't mind the occasional stalking). As of now, the fresh goods are exclusive to the iOS crowd, while an update for the Android variant is said to be in the works. As usual, you can grab the app straight from the App Store on your device or via the iTunes link below.

President Obama test drives a Sphero on Boulder visit

Image

President Obama was in the Centennial State last night, hyping up an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Colorado at Boulder's Coors Events Center. Of course, he couldn't help but take some time to check out some some of the local innovation. The President took a few moments out of his busy schedule to play around with the smartphone-controlled Sphero RC ball, declaring "how cool is that," before demanding that the crowd, "give me some space to drive my ball." He also tossed out some superlatives like "terrific," after nearly driving it into a woman's flip-flop. Now that's a solid endorsement, if ever we've heard one. In all, it didn't last long -- the guy's got a country to run, after all.

Walmart to unleash its Vudu magic on South America, Europe, Asia

Walmart to unleash its Vudu magic on South America, Europe, Asia

Walmart's Vudu service will be dipping a toe in foreign waters for the first time, with a planned expansion that could see it landing in as many as 30 new countries. Mexico will be the first to get the service -- some time in June -- before it continues in a southerly direction toward other Latin American states. The rest of the expansion will cover Europe (including the UK and Ireland) and Asia, but won't happen until later on in the year. While Netflix has already beaten a path away from US shores, Walmart clearly hopes its strong retail presence (5000 stores in 26 countries) will help it earn more than just a tourist visa.

Nicki Minaj's 'Starships' Video 'May Be Too Saucy For TV'

Rapper says the clip is done and should drop next week.

Apparently, getting it just right is more important than keeping it especially timely.

Nicki Minaj's smash single "Starships" has been burning up the Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks now, peaking at #5 a few weeks back and currently holding it down at #7. The pop-dance track was the official lead single ("Roman Holiday" and "Stupid Hoe" were promo singles) from her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which debuted at #1 two weeks back.

All of which makes the fact that there's been no official video release for the buzz-heavy track seem all the more glaring. Heck, she's already released the video for "Beez in the Trap," technically the album's third single after "Starships" and "Right by My Side" featuring Chris Brown.

So when will we finally see the "Starships" video? Pretty soon, according to Minaj.

"It's officially done," Nicki told the U.K.'s Capital FM. "There was just one tiny little thing I wanted to change, but I know at the beginning of next week you guys will see it."

But watch out, Nicki warns: "It may be too saucy for TV."

Pictures of the rap/pop superstar hard at work on the clip surfaced in mid-March, showing Nicki looking amazing while sporting green hair and a pink bikini as she filmed in an exotic location.

At the time, Minaj told MTV News that seeing girls sporting her unique style has been an exciting byproduct of her fame. "I guess I am pop culture, just because what I'm doing seems to be popular. When people want to do what you're doing, it's kinda popular," she said. "I don't ask girls to wear pink hair; they just do it. It's not about black or white; I think it's just a statement. It doesn't matter which color you are; it's just a statement of being fearless."
