Totally Agree. The PDK has been around for over a year, and is very well documented. I am also a developer, and this "insider" info is nothing but bull.
Pre2 had only limited release, but it is way faster, and works great, compared to the pre and pre+ that just worked ok. I agree, it is still a better experience than any other mobile OS. I have used the iPhone, and tried very hard to like android, but eventually went back to my pre2, love it! Veer and pre3 are also great hardware, that never got a chance... Was not an issue with the OS, it was an issue with the company selling it...
or demanding apps, developers can use the PDK, its allows use of lower level c and c++ code. Angry birds and the need for speed game both use it.
But I never really used it, so as bad as I feel to see it go, to be honest, I had no real need for it. Maybe later it will be reborn....
I try and donate a little each year to wiki, so I am glad that none of that money goes to godaddy. For this reason and many others...
Have been getting it since issue 3, and love every one.
Logging in with Facebook shares your address, email and name, so they can link your info with your IP, so they can later sell that info, or make threats. JUST DON'T DO IT. Click the log in, then report it to Facebook!!
I second them, I use the Nano on our open mesh network. It is a powerful 1watt, cheap, supports POE, works GREAT.
Plant wild flowers, or no mow grass(yes it exists, and works great)! -You will save $ on gas -pollute a lot less! (mowers are some of the least efficient motors around) -Make more fresh air -looks a lot better -get some nice birds, butterflies and such. -Gain 3 hours a week back. You can do a ton with that. And If you must mow, make a solar powered lawnmower with a server battery and starter mower like I did!
Is calculating a trajectory for his knife into your throat right now.
You would have already got one!

But the geek in me craves the 'smart' part of the equation, especially since I got a bonus this year-end that is burning a hole in my pocket. The iPad is out of the question because I need a bit more hack-ability in my gadgets. I am drooling over the Android Honeycomb demo from the CES. I've had my eye on the Galaxy Tab, though it sounds like it won't support Honeycomb. The Xoom looks great, but who knows when it will come out? The consensus seems to be 'wait a few months for Honeycomb.' If you were me, with limited patience, would you buy an Android tablet now? If so, which?"
I have to say I agree with this. Little of what I learned in Computer Science was useful, up to date or relevant. 80% of my classes were in unrelated things also, like speech, spanish, and "other". BUT going to college can expand your horizons and allow you to learn about areas outside of your "career". Someone once told me "No one ever said what you learn in school is useful"
I have had a Pre for months, and love it. I have had an iPhone and worked with Blackberries and WIndows Mobile phones a lot, and it blows them all away. I also as far as developing for webos goes, its a dream. I love it, way better then development for the iPhone was when I did that. I really was hoping they would licence the OS to a few good hardware developers, but I hope whoever buys them keeps the OS and the same ideals the developers of it have.
