Google is making big changes to the software of its set-top box Google TV. The update will allow developers to create Android applications made specifically for your TV. If you already have a Google TV, the device will update itself over wi-fi. In other news, Google also announced that YouTube would become home to around 100 channels of content. Many channels will feature content by celebrities including Ashton Kutcher and Jillian Michaels. YouTube has paid over $100 million to channel partners and will offer up to 55% ad revenue to content creators. And finally, if you’re experiencing severe battery problems with your iPhone 4S, you’re not the only one. Users found that automatic time zone detection may be draining the battery. Turning off the “Setting Time Zone” option in Systems Services could add up to 12 hours of battery life.
