HTC smartphone owners, take note. Your Ice Cream Sandwich update is coming this month says HTC on its Facebook page. The company previously released a laundry list detailing the ICS roll-out schedule but failed to meet many of its own target dates. But HTC is now stating all the devices on that list will get Android 4.0 by the end of this month.
If HTC follows through with this plan, Android 4.0 should hit devices like the Droid Incredible 2, Thunderbolt, Rhyme and Desire S. This is especially good news for the latter two, which HTC previously stated would have ICS by the end of July.
Relative to iOS updates, major Android revisions are slow to hit devices. This is for various reasons, too. OEMs and carriers often put the updates through rigorous testing, and furthermore, they have to support a huge number of devices. A Google report released earlier this month notes that 16% of Android devices are now running Android 4.0, up from 10.9% in July. But Gingerbread, released in 2010, is still the dominate Android version and currently powers 60% of the devices on the market.

Little Baby's Ice Cream, a small chain in Philadelphia, made a couple of weird ads recently. But they're not as scary as some people are suggesting, unless you're frightened of hipsterish forced wackiness. The concept of Malcolm, the chain's official spokesthing, who supposedly grew out of a failed batch of Duck Sauce Vanilla ice cream, is cool in theory. But the initial surreality of watching Malcolm eat himself gets annoying after about 30 seconds or so. It's not unlike the initial excitement of seeing Neil Gaiman, followed by the disappointment when Amanda Palmer shows up, too. Second spot after the jump.
