TechBytes: Android Beats iPhone

VIDEO: Google?s phone is outselling the iphone but selling less than the blackberry.

Google phones are outselling the iPhone. A new report finds that smartphones powered by Google's Android software have moved into the number two spot in sales over the first three months of this year. Of course Google has an advantage because its software is available on several devices and all the major carriers. There's just one version of the iPhone and it's only on AT&T. Both Apple and Google still trail the BlackBerry.

Twitter Bug

Twitter says it has fixed a bug that brought the site to a standstill on Monday. The glitch allowed anyone to force another user to follow them on the site. That means regular users were able to make it appear as though celebrities were interested in what they had to say. For about an hour, all Twitter users had zero followers while the company fixed the problem.

"Iron Man 2" Review

"Iron Man 2" had a huge opening weekend at the box office. When a movie is that big, it usually means there's a video game tie-in. CNET's Dan Ackerman found that the sequel is better than the original.

"The graphics are better, the storyline is tied into the movie. It uses a lot of the same characters, but it's not the same plot, so you don't have to worry about playing the game and then seeing the movie and having the plot spoiled for you," said Ackerman. "At the same time, this is still a movie tie-in. It's not gonna have quite the same level of polish and sophistication as a big mainstream, AAA video game. That said, if you're looking at video game movie tie-ins, this is certainly one of the better examples we've seen this year." "Iron Man 2" is available for all the major gaming consoles.
