The first update to the Google Now Android assistant was announced Wednesday night, adding sports information, movie details and emergency alerts.
I'm a little surprised they didn't just have Google Now mine my search history to add teams automatically - I'm pretty sure that this would have, accurately, led the system to conclude that I like the Boston Bruins quite a lot - but I guess it's nice that they opted for manual addition of sports teams. It's a lot less creepy. (FYI: Some teams are listed under weird names like "Foxborough New England Revolution.")
Amazon's app store is now available in the U.K., France, Spain, Germany and Italy, giving Android users in those countries a new way to download Angry Birds - as well as paving the way for its presumptive release of the Kindle Fire 2 on Sept. 6.
