CyanogenMod 10 ROM with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is now supports OTA updates, CM10 nightly builds can now be fed straight to your device, just like carrier OTA updates.
The team added a feature to "About -> Settings" called CM Updater, which will connect to their servers, check for the latest nightly download, and install it on your device on request it doesn't get any easier than that.
CM10 Updater will work for all the nightlies that appear from today onwards, but bear in mind that this is for stock CM10 only, it won't update your custom recovery, so you'd have to resort to ClockWorkMod for that.
FAVI SmartStick is a teeny weeny computer that plugs in the HDMI port of your TV. Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it can stream media from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Pandora or a PC connected to your home Wi-Fi network. One can even play Angry Birds on the big screen, browse the internet using the Android web browser, or download apps from Google Play.
At the same time, getting one of these gadgets with 4GB of on-board storage will set you back a mere $50. The 8GB model is priced at $80 for those who might need the extra memory. An optional wireless keyboard with built-in touchpad and media control buttons is also being offered for $40. Don't get that wallet out, however, as the FAVI SmartStick is not out yet.
SmarStick will start shipping in late October, but the impatient are free to pre-order one from the company's web page.
