No Gingerbread snack for Desire owners, says HTC

Launcher Pro

WTF?

To all those moaning about expiry

It was a problem for a small number of users which the dev fixed and apologised for. It's not like it was supposed to cause you all that hassle and please stop being dramatic and saying it bricked your phone. Bricking implied that it was unfixable when in fact it was easy to fix.

Nexus S appears twice

You have the device listed twice as both a Google Nexus S and a Samsung Nexus S . Given the identical specs I assume that is the mistake.

Why is Google's new Nexus S like no other smartphone?

New versions of android run on older phones

Even those that aren't officially upgraded can easily be run with something like CyanogenMod which is prted to all kinds of devices. At the moment you can even run 2.2 on a G1!

Herts cops 'ate the evidence' at scene of crime, court told

T-Unit

Would it have more value...

... if they had bagged the pizza and then pulled out a bag of sweaty mold 18 months later when the case finally makes it to court?!

By then there would be nothing to say that even ever WAS pizza!

WTF?

Jake, stop being a nob

You don't have all the answers and sound like a petulant, ignorant fool. The simple fact is that I do not want to carry around a dedicated camera for the odd opportunist photo of friends being silly, nor a music player for the stroll to work, a sat nav for visiting client sites, a games console for the odd moment I'm waiting for my girlfriend to try something on in a shop plus the plethora of other funky things I do with my Android phone every day.

Of course convergent devices aren't as good as stand alone, but it's about convenience and compromising some quality for that. Considering that, the quality I get is more than adequate anyway

XDA Devs is not a hacking collective!

I doubt I'll be the last XDA member to come on here and say this but it is NOT a hacking collective or anything of the sort. It is, as the name suggests, a group of developers but also enthusiasts, fans and pasing visitors who are looking to get the best out of their smartphone. Some of the work revolves around custom firmware but a lot more of it is about new apps, themes, ways of doing things and discussion about new devices or how-to guides.

Please don't go all Daily Mail on us.

Why that name?

Are they TRYING to be confusing, given that Sense is also the name of the UI overlay they employ on many of their devices.

Google sticks goggles on the iPhone

T-Unit
Thumb Up

Totally agree

I saw a painting I really liked in an office I was visiting recently, I snapped it with goggles and was able to find out what it was, who the artist was and several others of their, all of which I liked too.

It also worked on the vast majority of albums, books and product brands I've tested.

For the only app of it's kind (at least, the only that I've ever seen), it's pretty accomplished

Are Apple doing it on purpose?

It almost feels like they are laying technology traps just so they can keep floating on a sea of law suits. I fully expect some company to make real, beneficial use of this tech somewhere down the line and Apple to spring out and sue them.

Perhaps I'm just a big cynical Sally

Android app secretly uploads GPS data, warns Symantec

T-Unit

Actually Giles

Android DOES explain the techy terms. If an app needs permission for location it actually lists it as as "your location course (network)" and "Your location fine (GPS)". Not sure quite how much clearer they could make it

Not jail breaking OR rooting

Absolutely right. 'Jail breaking' is an iPhone activity, it is similar to rooting Android devices but by no means the same thing.

In any case, you do not need any root access to run code from outside the market, you just need to tick a box (which is clearly presented in settings).

Big fail here.

Sheep?

You realise what a sheep you sound?

When confronted with choice you basically panicked and went back to Apple as they kindly decide what is best for you without you having to trouble your poor brain?

I realise that's very patronising but that is essentially what you did! Why not read the review on this very site to find out which HTC device is best for you? My initial thought would be the Desire

They hold their value

Sell it on eBay or one of those phone recycling companies and you will easily be able to pick up a decent Android or BB device for the money

BOFH: Little ups and downs

A typo?

I hate to be a pedant* but:

"11?

The same as 9, but for 30 minutes."

9 was the one that takes you to the floor with the hottest woman. 10 was the one that goes up and down randomly for 15 minutes.

* This is the opposite of the truth

Surely a safer bet

Android is not a phone

It is an OS which runs on many different phones with many different batteries, the life of which varies greatly. You cannot simply say that 'android phones' have poor battery. My Nexus One lasts 2 days with moderate use, for example.

Google chief: Nexus One was 'so successful, we killed it'

T-Unit
FAIL

Not at all

It is running 'vanilla' Android which means it gets the updates first as there is no Sense UI or carrier BS to slap on before pushing it out. It's already had two updates ota including the latest version of Android 2.2 (or FroYo).

Megan Fox exits Transformers 3

Could have put it better myself

This is spot on. I was a kid, I loved the cartoon and I wanted the toys. Now I am an adult (physically at least) and the movies are entertaining and look fantastic with decent CGI and action sequences. I don't exactly walk out of the cinema challenging my perceptions, contemplating human mortality or feeling emotionally drained but I do think "well that was pretty kick ass, Megan Fox is hot, whats for dinner" and there is nothing wrong with that

Until they did. Google have expanded into a new field, just like Apple did. I didn't hear Nokia's CEO whinging like a little bitch when that happened
