Hey, how about that Super Bowl, am I right? Okay, you got us -- we didn’t watch the darned thing because we were working hard all weekend while the rest of you planted your backsides on the couch to indulge in cheap beer, stale nachos and the high blood pressure that surely comes from such testosterone-driven forms of entertainment.

With much of the internet blacked out today in protest of the pending SOPA bill, you’re probably ready to read about something -- anything! -- else to wind down your mid-week “hump day.” Of course, we’re all waiting to see what Apple will serve up to the educational community tomorrow, but in the meantime they’re busy slapping Samsung with another patent lawsuit aimed at the Korean manufacturer’s smartphones -- so there’s no end in sight. In the meantime, here’s what else is making news for this wonderful Wednesday, January 18, 2012.

We may be an Apple-centric publication, but that doesn’t mean every once in a while, something comes along from a competitor which makes us stand up, take notice and even drool a little. We love our iPhone 4S -- seriously, you’d have to pry it from our cold, dead hand -- but the siren song of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus proves too much to ignore, so we had to venture out and procure one for ourselves.

In the meantime, there’s plenty of other tech items making news for this Wednesday, December 28, 2011.
