Google has once again teamed up with Hulu to give exclusive access to free TV content for all Android users. Sadly, this promotion is strictly limited to customers in the United States who download the Hulu app via the Play Store.
On top of minor bug fixes and improved responsiveness, SwiftKey‘s 5.1.2 update to its 5.1 build also includes a bevy of “festive” holiday themes bundled in a new Gift Wrap pack.

SwiftKey certainly likes their holiday Easter eggs (remember SwiftKey Tilt?) and Christmas is no exception. They’ve already released a Winter theme for the keyboard to get everyone in a festive mood, but apparently there’s a neat little Easter egg built into that update, too.
If you type “hohoho” anywhere with the keyboard, then long-press it in the word suggestion bar, snowflakes will begin falling across your screen. They’ll keep falling as long as the keyboard is up, so if you’re typing a very long text or email, this can give the experience a little more Christmas spirit. Cool little Easter egg, right?
Samsung just released a nice video called “Galaxy Note 3 – Holiday Reflections,” which surprisingly doesn’t call out competitors, tell jokes, showcase major features of the device, or any other conventional marketing tactics Samsung normally uses.
Instead, the video shows Galaxy Note 3′s in a “winter wonderland” of sorts, reflecting familiar holiday images on their screens. The video can also be watched in full HD 3D inside YouTube if you have any 3D devices.
Hit the break to check out the video in action.
accidentally put off your Christmas shopping to the last minute, you’ll be happy to know Google is trying to lend a hand to the late shoppers. Thanks to Google’s Shopping Express service, you’ll be able to get a handful of Google Play products delivered before Christmas. In fact, anything ordered up until 5 PM on Christmas Eve is guaranteed to make it to your home in time for Santa to stop by.
There are a few catches here, obviously. First off, Google only offers the service in a select few areas, namely in the San Francisco and San Jose areas. Anywhere else in the US, and you can’t take advantage of the service. Secondly, Google isn’t offering everything in the Play Store. You’ll be able to pick up a few things like a Chromecast or a Nexus 7 tablet, but selection is pretty limited based on stock availability. Right now, the Chromecast, 16 GB Nexus 7, 32 GB Nexus 10, and white Nexus 7 folio case are available, but that will likely fluctuate a bit until Christmas.
