Live from Google I/O: Waving Wednesday’s Keynote

Live from Google I/O: Waving Wednesday’s Keynote

Google kicks off its annual two-day developerfest Google I/O today in San Francisco, and no doubt there are goodies in store during the opening keynote this morning from 9 until 10:30am Pacific Time. Google TV? Google Storage? Android 2.2? A better Buzz, Wave, or Chrome? You can watch the live video stream on YouTube as it happens. I’ll be in a seat in the audience at the Moscone Center, live-typing commentary in the wave embedded below, along with Adam Pash from Lifehacker,...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together...

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Yesterday’s post generated some interest in an Android application that manages a todo.txt file, and I’ve got an itch to try my hand at a mobile app. So, I’ve just created a skeleton Java-based Android app called Todo.txt Touch. The source code is located on GitHub, and it literally does nothing right now, except list some faux tasks from an XML file. Goal is to get the app to read a todo.txt from Dropbox (and eventually, other configurable cloud sources), sort and...

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 left...

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google announced the all-new Google Buzz today, a Gmail “inbox” of sorts that aggregates all your contacts’ social network activity across the web. Lifehacker’s got the full rundown. A few quickly-jotted first impressions of the service: This ain’t no Orkut. Buzz demonstrates that Google is VERY serious about social media, and just threw down the gauntlet in an attempt to take on Facebook and Twitter. However, they’re doing it by embracing existing...

How to Tether Your Android Phone

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...

Organize Android’s Home Screen Icons in Folders

Organize Android’s Home Screen Icons in Folders

Android users have a limited number of home screens on their phone (3 to 5, depending on what version you use), but folders group your home screen shortcuts into quick pop-up menus. For example, I’ve got a few specific things I use on my phone when I go to the gym: a workout music playlist, a stopwatch app, my gym locker combination, a bookmark to an exercise program I’m following, and an app that tracks how far I’ve run. I only use these shortcuts when I’m at...

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

David Pogue says an ardent army of “Fandroids” attacked his mostly positive Nexus One review with the same mouth-foaming irrationality as Apple, Microsoft, and Linux fanboys of years past. Crazy people saying crazy things on the internet aside, Pogue makes a good point: Android has come to represent a kind of hacker counterculture, whose members dismiss the iPhone as closed, proprietary, and designed “for dummies” and sheep. I thought Pogue’s review was well...

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

I’m pretty excited about the launch of the Nexus One tomorrow (even though in Engadget’s video demo Android’s schmancy new Live wallpaper process crashes, see minute 4:09). Since my AT&T contract is up I’m planning on getting one along with a new two-year T-Mobile contract. Even though I hate getting locked into another contract, dropping almost $500 on an unsubsidized phone felt like a little too much. However, it looks like the phone plus a data-only T-Mobile...

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

With so much going on in the mobile phone industry, I have decided to do a bit of a comprehensive round up. This is an essential update of all the intriguing new phones that you have had your eyes on. Like the X6, the N900, the HD2, etc. This is a strictly non-Apple/iPhone update, mainly because that needs a separate post. 😉 There’s a second part coming in a bit. Get over to the other side and get updated in the mean time. Nokia X6 To Land In The UK This Friday If you have...
