It comes just weeks after the launch of Chromecast, Google’s TV dongle, which conspicuously left out the branding.&nbsp;An executive from a consumer electronics manufacturer that has been producing Google TV devices confirmed the rebranding in a recent conversation with GigaOM, saying: ‘They are calling it ‘Android TV’ - so get ready for Jelly Bean to make an appearance on a TV near you soon.&nbsp;Sony seems to have confirmed the switch, calling its latest not-Google TV product Bravia TV to avoid any complications.

It has commissioned a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, snappily called TALOS, which would provide the wearer with superhuman abilities like night vision, enhanced strength, and protection from gunfire. Astonishingly, it’s not science fiction, and the suit will be made from a radical self-healing metal being developed by boffins at MIT. The initial demonstration goal is to identify technologies that could be integrated into an initial capability within a year, the US Army says. A second goal is to determine if fielding the TALOS within three years is feasible - so watch out.
