Re: Why does Android feel so lacking?

This is not actually true. Android has supported activity based multi-tasking since API level 1, or the version before the first commercially released version of the OS. Some apps run completely as...

Re: The Epic Android Thread

According to some of the comments at the link, it came as far back as 2009. Put a more direct way, the SDK has always been closed; this certainly isn't a new development.

While the SDK may be...

I also really like the idea of Pixel Qi that has a reflective LCD display and the ability to turn off the backlight entirely saving a claimed "100-fold" power savings over traditional displays. I do...

Re: The Epic Android Thread

And now Nokia has sold its corporate HQ for the equivalent of $222M US to stay ahead of their expenditures... I seem to recall a statement about pant-peeing for warmth ;).

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

Doh!

The client is a popular console app by the name of b-i-t-c-h-x (without the dashes). I don't use IRC, so I'm going on the testimony of others.

Re: galaxy note 2 supports multi window split screen

Yes, split screen is quite fabulous, and a great way to avoid the somewhat messy management of re-sizeable floating-windows on-
screen when displaying content.

I like the way that surface...

Re: galaxy note 2 supports multi window split screen

It's a feature that has been available in Android since the first version (IIRC), though is not often used by app developers. Any other questions?

Split screen (or multi-pane) rules. I have been dreaming of this feature on tablets for years. I am glad that it is finally being demonstrated by a major OEM. It is sure to get picked up in a future...

Re: The Epic Android Thread

Very interesting indeed! It certainly makes sense (in hindsight) to include this functionality in its own chip, rather than burdening the CPU/GPU with software that runs for every app, as is the case...
