The device you’re looking at above is the Galaxy Tab 8.9. We’ve already known about the device for quite some time, but today it gets official with Samsung accepting pre-orders and announcing a October 2nd release date.

Of course we already know much about the Galaxy S II and T-Mobile’s variant isn’t much different. Sporting a similar 4.5-inch super AMOLED display as Sprint’s variant, the Epic 4G Touch, the main difference is the processor. In order to accommodate support for T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 42 Mbps network, the device will include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm, opposed to Samsung’s own Exnos processr found in most Galaxy S II’s.

Remember when electronics stores were places you used to actually walk into, opposed to clicking through? Back when there was Circuit City and Sam Goody instead of Amazon and Dealnews? If you’re answer is no, you’re probably not old enough to vote, or the Matrix officially has you.

dockBoss+ is an interesting little adapter cable that allows you to connect your Android device or BlackBerry to your standard 30-pin connector iPhone or iPod speaker dock.
You probably realize, like we do, that most speaker docks include the ability to connect a non-Apple device via an aux cable plugged into the device’s headphone jack. Unfortunately, this option sacrifices one of the best features of these docks, the ability to charge your iPhone or iPod while it’s docked. dockBoss+, on the other hand, will charge up your Android just like an iOS device. Oh, and a built-in charge converter will even let you use the adapter with legacy speaker docks that only have Firewire.

The date is October 1st, 2012. After a heated Republican race for the nomination, one that saw Michelle Bachman pull out with the flu, Sarah Palin pull a hamstring, and Mitt Romney run out of money, President Obama and Ron Paul are in their second debate to be President, while most Americans sit and wait for photos of Kim Kardashian’s second child (it’s rumored to be a boy).
Most importantly in all of this, Facebook continues to make huge advancements, causing NASA to be jealous and parents to become terrified. Now at over 1 billion people served, Facebook is expanding more rapidly than ever with new and improved features appearing daily.

The internet has recently gotten itself into a frenzy over Google Plus rolling out its new lineup of features and facebook doing a near overhaul of the news feed (again). This all comes a month after of google’s announcement that they were over 25 million active users while nearly that many users were illegally downloading the Social Network on pirate bay.
Compared to Facebook’s 750 million and Twitter’s 100 million users, Google plus is still just the new kid on the block, who has managed to invite some people over for drinks, but haven’t quite gotten them to stay for the whole party.
Much of this is anticipated given the fact that most users hang out on the same social networks as their friends. With roughly 30 times more people on Facebook than google plus, something has to give if google wants to be taken seriously in the social media world.
