Root your Android phone with a simple application.
On this week's show, Jessica Dolcourt joins us for some hands-on time with the Galaxy Nexus--and that peek is all you get, since there's still no U.S. release date for that sucker. Ridiculous. Also, Google Music recapped and a tag-team SOPA rant, plus Stephen Beacham's awesome new segment: Into It or Not Into It. You will love it, and you will dance. All that and Computer Love, to boot! Settle in!
