  • Pump Iron to Activate Juicehead Mode! - Hit up the gym to kick DJ Pauly D into JUICEHEAD mode, letting him plow through enemies like a grenade at the buffet!
  • Stop and Take Tan! - Tanning salons keep DJ Pauly D from becoming DANGEROUSLY PALE! Pale skin costs you precious points and party time. Keep an eye on the complexion meter so you’ll know when to bronze up.
  • Laundromats Keep you Lookin' Fly! - Stop at the Laundromat or DJ Pauly D will go from stud to dud! Stay fresh to score more points and keep the night on fire!

Fixes in hand, Samsung begins pushing Galaxy Tab 10.1's Android 3.2 update again

34

Samsung's just let us know that the Android 3.2 update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has begun to push out again. You'll recall how a couple weeks ago the initial update led to Wifi connectivity problems for some, and the update was pulled. That bug has been squashed, and the update's good to go again.

If you skipped the update the first time around, you can download it over the air. For those who did update and ended up with a borked tablet (that's the technical term, by the way), you'll need to connect to the Samsung Kies desktop app and update that way.

Here's the official word from Samsung:

Earlier this morning, Samsung began releasing an over the air software update allowing Galaxy 10.1 users to upgrade to Android 3.2 while also resolving a Wi-Fi connectivity issues some Galaxy 10.1 users experienced following a previous software update. For Galaxy 10.1 users who are experiencing Wi-Fi connectivity issues and are unable to reconnect, the new software update may be downloaded and installed via Samsung's Kies desktop app.

No matter how you do it, though, good on Samsung for identifying the problem, pulling the update and pushing out a fix relatively quickly.

Darren Bent and Kasabian's Tom Meighan stage real-life football match with Xperia Play

1

Sony Ericsson has joined forced with Aston Villa's Darren Bent and rock band Kasabian to stage a slightly bizarre (and completely awesome) real-life soccer football match using Xperia Play handsets, location tracking technology and ten real live human beings. The five-a-side match saw England international Bent face off against Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan, with both controlling their teams from on high with specially modified Xperia Plays.

While you probably won't be able to command real, actual footballers using your Xperia Play anytime soon, SE is using this opportunity to remind everyone that Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and FIFA 12 are both available (and optimized) for the device, with the latter being an Xperia Play exclusive until February 2012.

We've got video after the jump.

LG Optimus 4G LTE arrives on Bell in Canada

5

With rumors of the LG Optimus LTE coming to AT&T as the LG Nitro LTE, Canadians are already ahead of the curve on availablity for this one as Bell Mobility has released the device.

As a reminder for those interested in specs you'll be getting a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 1830 mAh battery as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 1.3MP shooter up front.  That all goes with a full 1GB of RAM and 2GB of internal storage all powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Prices are as follows:

  • 3-Year Contract - $130
  • 2-Year Contract - $580
  • 1-Year Contract - $605
  • No Contract - $630

Call me a spoil sport but I think if I was going to go no contract, I'd spare my Toy Story piggy bank a brutal beating and just wait for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus considering that will only ring in at $650 no contract come December 8th.
