i got FROYO! froyo! Froyo! FroYo!

when's gingerbread?!?

anyways, singapore/singtel's HTC Desires just got their android 2.2 update today! yay!

and with that i finally tried out Fennec..a bit slow..but add-ons are a good thing..and no other mobile browser has them now...

on the other, low-end front, Android may get a even bigger audience when the chinese phone-makers (and everyone else?) start to take advantage of cheaper chinese chips...like http://www.clonedinchina.com/2010/08/rockchip-launches-android-enable-chip-rk2818-that-support-android-2-1.html

better idea of hp vs dell + 3par - why not compellent?

besides that, HDS recently bought parascale, but caringo seems to be independent still..

Their government is doing this, and they think Google is violating their privacy when it recorded the broadcasts they were operating from their wifi equipment..

wither a light meter? anyone?

1. camera phones have cameras on them
2. the cameras on phones, like all cameras, need to meter to work
3. i just want to know what they metered
4. is that so hard???????????????????
5. as a bonus, use the camera interface to let me do cool stuff like multispot or multisegment metering.
6. profit!
