“Hey Google”, This Falls Under Best Practices

October15

Dear Google:

At this point my last remaining gripe over Android is your method for rolling-out updates. Its frustrating.

I’m an Apple evangelist that loves Android. I swap back-and-forth between iPhones and Android devices out of curiosity (LG G3, iPhone 6, now a Moto X – probably an iPhone 6+ in the next two months after Apple Pay rolls-out).

Apple does a terrific job with updates. I’d like to see Android follow that.

I understand manufacturers want to add their skin. However, if Google could release the update in a more organized fashion the manufacturers (LG, Motorola) and service providers (AT&T, Verizon) could have their flavors ready by roll-out day.

This falls under best practices, and is not the least unreasonable.

By the way… If Android is the dominant mobile operating system on the planet then why do all the major carriers feature the iPhone on their opening pages?

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters

a tasty Apple update

September16

Apple says AirPrint will work with a wide range of printers, from inkjets to laser printers.

It’s true. The technology is both timely, and awesome.

This comes with iOS 4.2, as an update in November for the masses, but already here for the initiated, and includes the AirPrint capability for wireless printing. It will automatically find printers on local networks and send text, photos and graphics for printing over Wi-Fi.

It must be noted that long-time ally Hewlett-Packard (HP) is the first printer-maker to raise their hand and help support the driver-less development effort. HP is another great stock to be looking at today – and, tomorrow.

Nonetheless, I’m am quite pleased with my Sprint HTC EVO 4G hand device powered (great word for what it does and means, here) by Android.

This means Android will need to stretch all the further to compete. And, that’s great for all of us.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
