  1. AT&T/T-Mobile Merger = Cellphone Soviet?

    So AT&T is trying to eat T-Mobile. OM NOM NOM. There have been several good articles that have come out over the past few days. Personally, I’m a fan of Ars Technica’s rendition of this particular situation (credit to them for being the inspiration for my

  2. Eighth Grader beats Angry Birds, Android Fragmentation

    Good Wednesday to everyone! I found a few tidbits that I wanted to share today that I thought that other people would find interesting today. First off, however, I need to admit that I’ve been doing a horrible job of doing this whole picture-a-day-for-a-year thing (365 Project). I’m

  6. Proprietary App Stores Bode Trouble for Android

    It is rare that I find myself genuinely concerned when I read the tech news. I am quite often bemused, or even annoyed – but rarely concerned. However, today, I am concerned. On TalkAndroid today there’s an article discussing Amazon’s intent to open their own Android App Store. This

  7. Upgrade Schedules, Traveling Guides, and Traffic Jams

    So, this blog post is going to be going out a little bit later than I had intended, but I had a little bit of a crazy day – what with having to take my car into the shop. Anyway, it’s time for me to give a little roundup of

  8. ADTP: A Distributed Method for Android Testing

    So, I’m taking a break from reporting on fun things happening in the technology industry to write something of a whitepaper for a cool idea that I had. If you are interested in mobile application development, as I know a few of my readers are – then you will find

  9. Dell's Streak = Awesome New Android Toy

    Yes! I’m alive! I survived my exam and caught up on everything at work, so here I am again blogging. And boy do I have something to blog about. I was reading Talkandroid.com this morning (while drinking my coffee of course) and came across this little gem: [![](http:
