    LG issued its KitKat update for carriers several weeks ago, but Verizon was unsurprisingly absent from the list of supported devices.

Regardless of the delay, the LG G2 tied to the network has finally started its Android 4.4 KitKat update process. It's not yet ready for over-the-air updates, but if you download the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant PC software, you can grab the update now. Instructions are available here.

    Apple looking to incorporate Shazam into iOS for song identification

    In my recent comparison of Cortana to Google Now and Siri, I noted that Apple iOS was the only tool that didn't have song identification built into its search tool.
