Show of hands, who the fuck cares what Ray Ozzie thinks?
That's one of the really nice things about Android... the soft keyboard uses a totally open API that any 3rd party can develop too and give the user the choice to use.
"To avoid interruption, you'll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010"
Or... don't install Windows 7 at all? I'll take that option.
This is such a farce, you need to read a little deeper than the glossy "gold rush" articles. there have been a very *small* number of people who got lucky and struck it rich, but as in all gold rushes, there are now so many people trying to get theirs, that the app store has become a wasteland clusterfuck of shitty me2 apps. Now, like everywhere else in life, you have to a) have a good application b) have good marketing c) have some luck to make money with iphone apps.
seriously, I recently tried uninstalling it to give ad revenue to sites i visit, but as soon as I started hitting abusive ads (flashing, misleading fake dialogs, video with sound, popunder) the adblock went back on. I've whitelisted a few of the more trustworthy ad networks like google adwords because they don't abuse the users.
If you do almost all your computing using "cloud" services like google docs, flickr, gmail/gcalendar/etc, who needs a full fledged desktop os? For most people that accounts for their entire "every day" computing task load. all you need is a lightweight, easy to use, energy efficient OS. Android would be perfect for that use. There are netbooks coming out now with built in 3g cell broadband adapters, so throw android on one of those and you have yourself a cloud computing terminal that is instant on and snappy. sounds badass to me.
