What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the...

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

A week ago I asked readers to tell me how they’re using Google Wave in their daily lives, and despite a bit of “ha! no one’s using Wave!” snarking on the Twitter, I got lots of interesting responses. Unsurprisingly, most Wavers use it as a real-time wiki, but some take advantage of features unique to Wave, like inline and private replies, public tags, and gadgets. I featured the most unique use cases I got in a brand new chapter just added to The Complete Guide...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision. Predictably, Steve’s apostles are smug, Adobe’s pouting, and the rest of us will have to field questions from our relatives about why they keep seeing a blue lego piece. Flash usage has been declining over the years anyway, and a few web publishers have shared numbers to prove the point. 32% of visitors...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her...

How to Tether Your Android Phone

There are three ways to tether your Android handset and get sweet internet love even where there’s no Wi-Fi in sight: the risky-but-free method that requires serious technical skills, the still-geeky-but-not-as-bad free route, and the $30 easy way. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each. Method 1: Tether Android with Apps that Need Root (Free, heavy configuration) The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot–essentially a MiFi–in...
