Top 5 News of the Week

It's been a Jelly Bean kind of week with the official announcement of the long-awaited-but-not-so-exciting update to the Android OS. We've heard who's getting it first and what's different from Android 4.2.2 and we've speculated a little on when Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will surface. We also got the official reveal of the new Nexus 7, which confirmed everything we've been leaking for days, and saw a brand new device called Chromecast from Google. We also saw more Moto X leaks, practically on a daily bassis, and a mysterious teaser video from CyanogenMod for something called Nemesis. So, what else were you reading about most in the last week?

Is 35 Days Enough Standby for You?

Philips have announced the most ridiculous sounding selling point for their new Xenium W8510 ever: a 35 day standby battery. Now, don't get me wrong, this is pretty exciting news, but only because it means we should soon see every other manufacturer aspiring to produce better battery life for the devices we actually want to use.
