Alright, here’s the deal. When people think Android, they think it’s only for nerds you can find on “Revenge of the Nerds“( For you younger folks, google it!). That’s not the case as 63% of us have significant others. The platform in 2011 branched out globally and knocked Nokia off their pedestal! As far as other overwhelming numbers, most of us Android users are the t-shirts and jeans kind. That fits me pretty much! You can check the rest of the numbers below… Enjoy!
During my absence from the blog, the Android Market reached 10 billion downloads. 10 billion downloads!! Within a 6 month period alone, the Market had 4 billion downloads. This feat is a testament to the engine that could with the Android platform. I bet if I counted how many apps I have downloaded from the Market since I’ve joined the Android platform, some people’s mouth would drop open. Developers used to first create an app for iOS (iPhone) then move on to Android. However my friend, those times are changing rather quickly. Now, I am not talking about profitability here. That’s a whole another subject for another day. Check the numbers Google was nice enough to display for us here and broke it down a bit for y’all. Enjoy!
My posts on this blog are not meant to be political in any form or fashion. As a matter of fact, I have no affiliations with any party or candidate. I don’t mean to be wishy-washy. Some I like more than others but for the most part they are the same and end up being as such. I have no formula about how I post. One thing I know is, I am finding my stride. Just like I did with my Orioles blog. This is a continuation of my previous post, regarding how we are humans and not robots. Come to think of it, a lot of my posts are roughly on the same wavelength. I write a whole bunch of different verbiage but the theme is the same. And it’s meant to be positive. Technology had a big hand in how the Occupy Wall Street and subsequent groups began, developed, and eventually ended.
I can’t stop watching this scene from The Great Dictator.
Charlie Chaplin was the king of Silent films, but this was, in my opinion, some of the greatest dialogue ever! What is even more fascinating, is that this was filmed in 1940. This was before the end of World War 2, Martin Luther King, the Civil Rights Movement, Malcolm X, the fall of the Berlin Wall, before the Internet, and before 9/11.
This was over 70 years ago and is all-so-important, vital, and relevant today. So what does this have to do with technology? Everything.
Since I was in grade school, I have always questioned things. Hard to believe that anyone would find anything in their textbooks questionable or misleading? Call it intuition, delusion, or whatever.
There has always been a group of people that find something wrong with our system, our government, and the status quo. That’s a whole bunch of terms for the same thing.

Everybody knows I pro-Android and sorta anti-iPhone but when it come to tablets I am neither. If I can’t do everything on my tablet that I do on my PC, it’s a waste of time and money for me. Let’s say I used a certain program on my PC to create some type of document and need to modify that file on the go; but now my Android or iPad can’t because the program is not compatible on those platforms. What now?? For the price of these oversized iPhones and Android phones, I’d rather get a fully functional device. And with Windows 8 around the corner, I can’t wait!! Looking at the numbers from Boston Consulting Group, you can see that U.S. consumers agree. So do Chinese consumers for that matter. iOS and Android are both holding their own but still not quite there yet. What about you? You got a tablet already? If so, which one? If not, what are you waiting for?
I will tell you I have an obsession with Google Chrome extensions just like I did with Firefox before. Unfortunately, Firefox suffered from serious initial load up times and other hiccups. I think that I am starting to have the same issues with Chrome too. However, I have gotten so accustomed to using these extensions that I can’t live without them. I will share some of these with you today!
