It’s not a very technical video, but it’s pretty and you do get to see the Gorilla Glass on the front get it’s curve from 800°C heat.

Sony releases Bootloaders to make changing to a custom ROM a synch!
The bootloaders allow you to boot from the recovery space, which will let you switch to CyanogenMOD if you want but also to other operating systems, like Firefox OS or Ubuntu Touch.

This weekend I spent over eating and moshing at an Violent Emo Metal show in Semarang which is in Central Java or smack drab in the middle of Indonesia…what about you? Any reason in particular you weren’t constantly scanning the news feeds?
