Your Google+ profile picture will soon be matched with your phone number

Sometime early next year, Google will start matching verified phoned numbers with Google+ profile pictures. What does this mean for you? Well, once Google verifies your phone number, anytime you call someone, they will see your Google+ profile picture on their incoming call screen.

Motorola DROID update found on non-soak testers' phones

Earlier on Tuesday, we told you that those Motorola DROID Ultra, Motorola DROID Maxx and Motorola DROID Mini owners who had agreed to participate in the upcoming soak test, would receive their update sometime on Tuesday. The update contains improvements to the camera including speedier focusing, more consistent exposure, improved white balance and HDR improvements. Most people who buy a Motorola DROID model don't make the purchase for the camera, but this update does offer some big improvements to the rear snapper. The update also includes the Google Drive promotion that gives you 50GB of extra cloud storage on top of the 15GB that you already get for free.
