If there is one complaint we hear from Android users more than any other, it’s the speed at which software updates arrive. Or don’t arrive. It’s especially tough on tech enthusiasts who read about all the advantages of the new update, but can’t get it on their own devices for six months, if at all. Even brand new devices typically fail to launch with the latest version of Android. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus–a marquee Android flagship if there ever was one–only got its new Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) update today.

3D-printed gun maker now has federal firearms license to manufacture, deal guns | Ars Technica

Read full Ars Technica report here.

On Saturday, Defense DistributedAmerica’s best-known group of 3D gunsmiths–announced on Facebook that its founder, Cody Wilson, now has a federal license to be a gun manufacturer and dealer. The group published a picture of the Type 7 federal firearms license (FFL) to prove it.

“The big thing it allows me to do is that it makes me manufacture under the law–everything that manufacturers are allowed to do,” he told Ars. “I can sell some of the pieces that we’ve been making. I can do firearms transactions and transport.”

Wilson and his colleagues have been making prototypes of guns for months now. Most recently, the group demonstrated an AR-15 semi-automatic, which is allowed under American law without a license. The legal difference now is Wilson can distribute the guns that he makes and sell them, too.
