PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Exactly six months ago, Eric Schmidt made a remark that in the near future, developers might want to focus on Android first, instead of iOS. While developers haven't moved to Android-first, iOS-later en masse, there's no denying that we're seeing more and more former iOS exclusives move towards Android.

Oh man. Did he just argue that fewer options == more customisable? Yes, he did. When you really, really have a point to prove, and no way to prove it, just go all-out into denial. For your like-minded, it might Just Work.

(Just Work is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.)

That article was... Painful. Clearly written by someone who doesn't understand the appeal of hacking your devices AT ALL.

One of my friends has a Galaxy Note. She uses it as a server for up- and downloading files over a webinterface, playing video games on an emulator (N64, Game Boy) and as a Samba server in a local Windows network, for example. She does much more with it, but I forgot.

For me, as an iPhone user, the possibilities blew my mind.
