Some people are serious about their food. They take pictures of their food. They post those pictures of their food on their social networks. They talk about their food with other people that really love their food. Food is a serious mobile business. Evernote knows this and has updated its Food application to version 2.0.

There is a 30-day free trial available and a full version, which for the time being is only 99 cents.

If you've ever seen your iPhone-toting friends or coworkers use Gmail on their phone, you might have noticed that it is a little bit prettier than the Gmail app on your Android device. This makes me wonder who the Gmail team is really working for.

I last wrote about the Google TV remote in early 2011. Even when I wrote on it, the application had not been updated in a year. I had just purchased a Logitech Revue and found the Logitech Harmony app to be lacking of any imagination at all. Similarly, the Google TV remote app gives the appearance of a lack of thought in a valiant attempt to try and make a simple application. The new updates matter little for those of us with legacy devices, but they were necessary.
