iPhone vs Android War Visualized! [Video]

I came across this funny commercial on YouTube for Swiss website swissinfo.ch , a branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, and thought I would share it with you guys! I guess they are trying to sell apps for both platforms and pushing the message of peace between them. Here’s their own explanation and video below:

swissinfo.ch released new apps for both Android and iPhone today, along with a short clip stating our neutrality on the subject… and a message of hope for world peace and more understanding among fans. Enjoy.

Here we go again with some pro-Android statistics. You cannot escape the facts and numbers brought to you Nielsen. Looking at the survey of recent acquirers of operating systems, you can clearly see that Android is continuing to put it’s foot down and taking over the mobile market at 43% with 56% in the past 3 months. Blackberry seriously need to get their QNX platform on the shelves before it’s too late. For the past 3 months, they only account for 9% of recent acquirers in the past 3 months whereas they are now at 18% of overall subscribers. Clock is ticking guys and the competition isn’t letting up! iOS is staying steady with their niche market numbers. They hold 28% of the overall subscribers shares and stay at the same percentage for shares of recent acquirers. And with the introduction of a new iPhone 4S or 5 on Oct. 4th, those numbers may increase very quickly.

It seems like the GO Devs keep saying “I thought I told you that we won’t stop eh eh,eh eh” with their updates on their GO Launcher app. They are coming out with tweaks and new features practically on a weekly basis, which is a big reason I had to leave my old fav LauncherPro. There are the updates to 2.56 and quick screencast of the scroll effects of the app drawer.

  1. (New) Add the landscape mode (Operation settings)
  2.  (New) Supports to slide screens while dragging the icon
  3.  (New) Add 8 scroll effects of app drawer
  4.  (Fix) Fix the default icons issue on dock bar

Golf Lesson + V1 Golf App [iPhone-Android App]

The other day, I had my first golf lesson that actually got rained out and cut 10 minutes short. It went pretty well. I am actually further along to getting my swing straight than I originally thought. I am not sure if my coach was hyping my head up or not but regardless I learned so much in that short 50 minute lesson. But I definitely found a cool app that he used to shoot a video of my swing. Of course, he had to pick one of my worst swings of Continue reading

Well yesterday my buddy came over so I could root his dated Nexus One. He had thought about it for a couple of months and finally decided to pull the trigger. I basically did what I always do when rooting a new phone and headed straight for the xda-developers forum to find the Nexus One development thread. Proceeded to go the stickied thread for the beginner guide and get the ball rolling. I found the right post with all the instructions, started the process of installing SuperOneClick and Continue reading
