Now that polished versions of Firefox 24 are out the door, Mozilla has released the beta version of Firefox 25 — and it’s quite a hefty upgrade for Android users. The new mobile build adds guest browsing, which lets friends borrow your device without seeing your bookmarks and history. As soon as a guest signs out, your data comes back. Beta testers also get a mixed content blocker, support for add-ons with page actions and an option to set pictures as contact photos or wallpapers. If you like the idea of sharing Android gadgets with others, you can grab Firefox 25 through Google Play.
At $ 349, Nvidia’s Shield portable game console has a lot to prove, but one celebrity is already making the leap: Luke from Modern Family. In this week’s episode, it looks like the youngster’s Nintendo 3DS has been at least temporarily displaced by the Android-based Tegra 4 handheld. But the significance isn’t what gadgets a character on a popular TV sitcom might play with, it’s that Nvidia managed to get the device onto the show.
Modern Family is no stranger to product placement — executive producer Steven Levitan told Advertising Age that the show constantly turns down offers — but Nvidia certainly is. The Shield is arguably the first consumer product ever built and branded by the chipmaker, and cost a reported $ 10 million in R&D….
The original Tablet S absorbed a few interesting updates in its time and hopefully things will go the same way with its slimmed-down replacement — the Xperia Tablet S. It’s getting off to a good start, with devices already waking up to an Android 4.0.3 update that brings significant additions like a Guest Mode for creating restricted user accounts, revampled media and social aggregation apps, and six assignable macro buttons on the IR Remote Control app. Sony has also bolstered its Small Apps function, allowing you to overlay a browser, IR remote and other utilities in a window on top of another app. What this update isn’t is the promised switch to Jelly Bean, of course, but it might just help to tide you over in the meantime.

After a weeklong hiatus, we’ve been aching to get back on the mics and speak our minds about all the crazy stuff going on in the world of mobile. And Myriam and Brad aren’t going it alone: they’re bringing Chris Davies of Slashgear fame (or is it infame?) to the hot seat and grilling him with the tough questions. It’ll be a blast, so you absolutely must join us, won’t you?
Oh, and if you have time to spare, we encourage you to sign up for a UStream account and participate in our podcast chats.

We enjoy having special guests on the podcast from time to time, because it’s nice to get a unique perspective on some of the latest happenings in the world of mobile. And we think you’ll be happy with this week’s honored selection, PCMag.com’s very own Sascha Segan. So join us as we welcome him onto the show and discuss the hot topics (Heatgate?) — and maybe a few cold ones (Ice Cream Sandwich?) — and all the lukewarm stuff in the middle. Who knows, it could get pretty crazy. Join us at 5PM ET!
A lot of Canada news this week, which is why three of the four podcasters behind the mic today are from the land up north: international man of mystery Sean Cooper, Myriam Joire (yep, she’s got some Canadian blood in her) and our special guest Kevin Michaluk — also known to millions as CrackBerry Kevin. Brad Molen’s here too, and while he’s admittedly all US of A through and through, he can still say “eh” like the best of ‘em. We kid, of course, but we’re serious that we want you to join us tomorrow afternoon at 5PM ET!
Note: Oh, and there’s plenty of other stuff to talk about as well, so if RIM isn’t your schtick, you’ll probably still find it of interest. As always, send your questions to us via Twitter (@engadgetmobile) and we’ll pick some out to answer.
Note: Don’t hesitate to sign up for Ustream before the show so you can join in the chat!

Customer Relationship Management is an old business. There are tons of CRM solutions, both generic and industry specific. Mobile development shop MConcierge has recently announced a new solution for CRM in the hospitality industry that they’re calling GRM: Guest Relationship Management. According to MConcierge, the point of GRM is to provide a top quality experience for guests that goes beyond just an average hotel stay. “Guests aren’t simply buying a room but an experience. By building more unique preferences the hotel brand can better customize the stay,” says Anthony Zebrowski-Rubin, CEO of MConcierge. “By building a profile of a guest based on onsite transactions, on and offsite interests, hotel preferences, and real time social profiled preferences contextualized to the type of property, the guest profile arms the hotel with information to action real positive communication with the guests.”
For the hotels, GRM incorporates online social profiling, a mobile loyalty program, and direct-to-consumer marketing. For the guests, GRM allows them to use the app to interact with the hotel — requesting wake up calls, asking concierge for recommendations, etc.

Here’s how GRM is supposed to work:
- Stage 1: A guest books with the hospitality brand. MConcierge’s software collects all “open graph” data from social media websites such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and Tripit. The data is fed into the GRM platform which groups, clusters and populates the data directly into the guest’s profile.
- Stage 2: The guest downloads the hospitality brand’s free mobile application onto their smartphone. The application rewards the guest for every activity performed using the mobile application with loyalty points for immediate on‐premise redemption.
- Stage 3: GRM communicates with the guest by personalized pre‐stay, on‐premise and post‐stay special offers. This reward program helps to increase client loyalty using customized customer campaigns while reducing room acquisition cost through a direct‐to‐client-booking engine.
It’ll be interesting to see if GRM improves the hotel experience for people. Maybe I’ve just been staying in the wrong hotels all this time. Actually, I’m sure that’s it.
