Drive west on US Route 50 through a stretch of Nevada highway known as “The Loneliest Road in America” and you’ll eventually find yourself in the rural county of Churchill. Once a solitary leg in the Pony Express route, irrigation transformed swaths of Churchill’s high desert areas into thriving agricultural communities more than a century ago. Fast forward to today and Churchill finds itself playing host to yet another interesting dichotomy — a first-of-its-kind power plant that generates electricity by harvesting renewable resources from both earth and sky.

Over on the Roku blog the company just announced it’s delivering a software 4.8 upgrade starting today. First up there’s a few new features included right away like support for Spanish and German in the UI, performance optimizations and playback improvement for channels like MLB.tv and GBTV. More interesting however is the prospect of what’s to come, as it also note “under the hood” preparations for new channels and features, promising upgrades for the iOS and Android remote apps soon. Like the last upgrade, the new version is getting pushed to Roku 2 and LT boxes now, while new HD boxes should see it next week.

Dr. Suess it’s not, but Google just had to make a bit of hullabaloo about the launch of its first branded tablet, the Nexus 7. The search giant took the wraps off it a few weeks back, but now pre-orders have finally started shipping to those who plunked down the $199 (or $249) for the Jelly Bean-packing slate. A few of you tipped us that the charge had finally hit your credit card, and now the official Google Nexus Twitter account has confirmed the devices have been packed on to trucks. So, celebrate, unless you’re one of the hesitant ones that didn’t place your order early in the Google Play store.
[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]
