This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

Superuser Icon Contest – What Are You Waiting For?
Author of the revamped Superuser app, XDA forum member ChainsDD has posted today that he is working on a new UI for the application.
However, in addition to the new UI, ChainsDD is looking for a new icon too. Self confessed at being ‘really lousy’ at Photoshop, the XDA member is holding a contest to get a new icon.
- The icons need to follow the platform guidelines for 2.0
- Icons must feature the current Pirate Andy (see image)
- Submissions must be in before midnight CST, Friday Nov 26
- Submit your entires via email, twitter, PM or in the thread
The XDA member will upload submissions on the thread as they come in, then will start a poll on Saturday on the same thread for members to vote for the next Superuser icon!
Voting will last till Wednesday Dec 1 noon CST and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter. In the event that the top voted icon designer cannot be reached in a reasonable amount of time, the runner up will be named the winner.
And the prize for the winner? Their icon will be used as the ‘face’ of Superuser. (Although ChainsDD has stated that he may try and find another prize if the contest generates enough interest).
For more information and to submit your entry, head on over to the forum thread!

While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
