As we all know, the Super Bowl is coming up this weekend and it should be an amazing game. The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers have both had great seasons and they shouldn't disappoint on Sunday. If you're a Steelers fan in particular, you should download the Terrible Towel app, which is necessity if you bleed black and yellow. (Hi, Phil's wife!)
The app, which was of course developed by a diehard fan, gives Steelers fans a portable Terrible Towel right on their mobile device. The yellow towels admittedly aren't that bulky, but it's nice to be able to pull one up on your phone and as the developer states in the description:
You don't have to ever wash this Terrible Towel. Actually, I recommend against it!
Aside from providing users with a digital Terrible Towel, the app also provides real-time Steelers news, 2010 highlights and past Super Bowl rings display,and live updates and tweets from various Steelers' players.
The app is $0.99 from the Android Market and is perfect for any Pittsburgh fan who can't wait until Sunday. Find the QR code as well as links to the app after the break.
Note: It also requires the Adobe Air plugin. And we don't recommend waving it around.
No problem! We got just the thing to help you get started. Although I've never looked at crocheting anything before in my life, the little Android guy above is making me think I may need to take up a new hobby -- or at the very least ask my fiance to make me one since she knows how to crochet. If you're wanting to make one of these yourself, you can find the pattern at by hitting the source link. Now, who is gonna make us all a Lloyd version? Thanks Andrew! [Bethsco]
All signs point to a Feb 14 release date for the HTC Thunderbolt, and according to next week's Best Buy advertisement, you will soon be able to pre-order the first LTE phone on Verizon at your local Best Buy. The ad mentions the pre-order with a $50 deposit, and has all the right buzz around LTE speeds, but offers no concrete release date or any hidden specs or features.
What a day thus far. New goodies to play around with, new things to look forward too. Google has clearly been hard at work when it comes to Honeycomb and we can't wait to see it's release. Did you miss out on today's event? If so, hit up the Android Central forums to get caught up and discuss more.
Did you miss our live coverage or just want to see all of Google's Honeycomb demos shown in video format? Well, Google has your back and has posted a video of their entire Honeycomb event on to YouTube. The video will run just over 50 minutes but is well worth the time as Google employees and guests show off apps, widgets, multitasking, notifications, and more. (And see if you can spot Phil!)
