The Dog Park: Week Of March 11th

Wow, was this a big week for the Android world! The biggest news, as you guessed, is that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S 4 at their Unpacked 2013 event. Not only was the event held in the US for the first time, but they put on a damn big show. Love it or hate it, it was big. And the same can be said for the phone: though appearance hasn’t been changed all that much, hardware got an excellent bump and software has been the innovative push Samsung is focusing on.

On top of that, we got the terrible news that Google is killing off Google Reader, the RSS feed we all use and love dearly. This would be a little more acceptable if we had a good alternative, but alas, we’re stuck begging Google to keep it.

Are you getting a Galaxy S 4? What was the most important bit of news to you? Tell us in the comments!
