Netflix finally released an update that will let users of older Android devices stream movies on the go. The long-awaited update will support 80% of devices running Android versions 2.2 and 2.3. Unfortunately, the release still isn’t compatible with older Android tablets. In other news, Microsoft is expected to show off the progress it’s made in developing a new version of Windows for tablet computers. Microsoft knew that tablets would be the future of computing a decade ago, but still hasn’t produced a popular device. The Windows 8 operating system could determine Microsoft’s future success in the market. And finally, AT&T is fighting back in its battle with the Department of Justice over the proposed buyout of T-Mobile. The telecom company’s formal response states that T-Mobile is such a weak competitor, that absorbing it would do no harm to consumers.
