Time to stock up on prepaid anonymous cell phones before its too late! Or just use the call encryption Android application...

iPhone vs Android adoption per state and per gender. Apparently I'm out of my demographic with my G1.

"Nokia has been struggling a bit this year, but this "hack it" to get your phone unboxing is pretty interesting. Once you "root" the box it opens up and a little puff of smoke appears, along with
your phone (if you're a phone / gadget reviewer)." Makes me wonder how many devs and engineers they had working on the box to contain this phone.

"Just as I was finishing my first look at the accelerometer and magnetic field sensors a couple of threads cropped up on the Android Developer's group..."

Wow, that was easy to setup. After installing the driver Eclipse just asks me if I want to debug on my phone or my virtual device.

"But this isn’t just another Android phone. ... It will be branded Google and sold by Google as an unlocked phone, which could change everything."

Gizmodo has a list of some excellent Android apps. Includes an OpenTable app, Flixster, and others. But doesn't mention the Aldiko, the ebook reader I like.

Cool, I've been waiting for this: "Twitter creator Jack Dorsey’s Square application, which is like a smartphone PayPal for credit cards, attracted lots of warranted attention for its potential to
enable peer-to-peer and merchant credit card transactions in the real world far beyond what’s capable today in most countries." Oh, never mind... "As a customer, all you need to buy from a Square
merchant is a credit, debit or pre-paid card"

Flickr dev. blog on the accept-language HTTP header: "It’s true that the Accept-Language header has a troubled history. Because of this, many developers regard it the way medieval villagers might
have regarded a woman with a warty nose and a pet cat – it should be shunned, avoided and possibly burned at the stake." And this great anecdote: "In two and a half years of running as an
international site, we’ve only ever had one case where it didn’t work. Helio, a cellphone company, had a browser was custom-built for them in Korea, and had its “Accept-Language” header hard-coded to
always request Korean, something which led to much confusion for the Flickr users amongst their American customers."

"Android 2.0 comes with a bevy of refinements to its connectivity features. These include VPN support, multiple account support, exchange support, HTML5 support, bluetooth 2.1, and quite a few more
which can best be found in the Android Platform Highlights document."

Wow: 'The fact that federal, state, and local law enforcement can obtain communications "metadata"—URLs of sites visited, e-mail message headers, numbers dialed, GPS locations, etc.—without any real
oversight or reporting requirements should be shocking, but it isn't. The courts ruled in 2005 that law enforcement doesn't need to show probable cause to obtain your physical location via the cell
phone grid. All of the aforementioned metadata can be accessed with an easy-to-obtain pen register/trap & trace order. But given the volume of requests, it's hard to imagine that the courts are
involved in all of these.'
