Google set to replace Motorola CEO Jha.
   It is being reported left, right and centre that Google are going to replace Sanjay Jha (CEO of Motorola) as soon as the merger between the two companies successfully completes. The idea is to replace him with someone from within Google who can help execute Google's vision for Android with a hardware team.
   There has been a lot of talk of Google making the next Nexus device with Motorola, but if the launch date for Android 5 Jelly Bean really is this summer then that does seem somewhat unlikely.

The Original Asus Transformer starts getting some ICS love.
   After yesterdays outcry about the horrific possibility that the the OG Transformer might have to wait a whole month for some Android 4.0 love, the update started rolling out in Taiwan and Singapore this morning.
   AND the news gets even better; Asus have announced that the USA customers will receive their OTA tomorrow too! Good news all around really and it'll be even better if they've managed to cure the random reboots that most ICS touting devices have suffered so far. Don't us Samsung device owners wish Sammy were like Asus?
