The continued fragmentation of Android

There’s no such thing as Android, only Android-compatible.

This is a beyond a great title for a story. Its also very trand right now and points to a very serious problem with Andriod.

Now I’m not an Andriod fanboy but I do like it quite a lot and see tons of potential in the OS. But fragmentation is killing it and will continue to do so unless something is done.

Check out the lin.  It’s a great article and a good read. It expresses things very well and echos a lot of what I’ve read and heard at conferences.

Missed this one

I’m normally pretty up to date on my Apple rumors, especially where mobile devices are concerned. But I have to admit I missed this one.

Totally and completely missed it.

The linked article below talks about rumors of Apple making a wearable Siri/iCloud control device. Much like the author, I was skeptical at first, but he goes on to make some great points. At the end, I completely agree with him. It makes sense.

Now I’ll admit I’m an Apple fan boy. I make no excuses. I can own that.

But I like my Invicta watches. It will take a lot to get e to give them up. Check out the link and see what you think.

Insert ginormous WTF!

TSA Agent in Vegas Confiscates Threatening Cupcake.

While not really having anything to do with technology this rates a post based purely on the WTF factor. Plus I like the picture.

It seems a TSA agent (you know, the guardians of safety and purity disguised as groping and bad manners) decided that the frosting on a woman’s cupcake that she had purchased, and intended on eating on the plane, was a security risk.

So the suspicious baked good was confiscated.

/facepalm

Really.

A cupcake.

Just so I get this straight.

On top  of groping us. Feeling up our children. Annoying us and generally harassing us while still letting the shoe bomber and underwear bomber slip past undetected, the TSA has decided they need to protect us against baked goods.

Sorry all, but I’ma having a hard time keeping a straight face here.

Sounds more to me like a TSA agent got hungry and decided to confiscate a snack. “In the name of national security”.

Love. It.

Go Daddy loses over 37,000 domains due to SOPA stance | VentureBeat.

If you don’t know what SOPA is, you need to take a few minutes to educate yourself. It is probably one of the single biggest threats to free speech this country has ever seen. And it’s being championed by a clueless congress on behalf of the recording and movie industries.

The number of companand (large and small) and people that have come out AGAINST it is stunning. So when GoDaddy came out in favor of it everyone was a bit shocked.

So it’s really nice to see them suffer a bit for being stupid and clueless.

I moved the one domain I still had with them. I’d encourage everyone to do the same. We as a country need to take a stand against SOPA and the clueless and clearly bought congressmen and women supporting this piece of crap.
