While we in New York cower behind cans of overpriced and underflavored Amy's Soup, those spoiled techies out in Mountain View, California--the location of Google headquarters--announced a whole mess of new Android stuff today. Here's what you need to know.
Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean): Android 4.2 is not that big of a deal, especially compared with the last version, Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.1, which brought Google Now (an honest-to-god revolution) and Project Butter (a huge improvement in regular use of Android phones). Android 4.2 has: Miracast, which does basically the same thing as Apple's AirPlay. It'll require a box or a new kind of smart TV to work, though LG says all of its future smart TVs will have it (and LG's TVs are quite good).
