Submission + - 5 new Android devices that stand out from the rest (infoworld.com)

GMGruman writes: About 100 Android tablets and smartphones have been shown at the CES 2011 show this week in Las Vegas. But most — like PCs — are clones of each other. But five devices announced at the consumer show stand out for innovation and could propel the Android platform even further in its competition with Apple's iPhone and iPad: Motorola's Atrix and Xoom, Samsung's Infuse 4G, Asus' Eee Pad Slider, and Vizio's Via Phone. The Atrix also represents a step to the post-PC future. CES this year served as the coming-out pary for 4G networks, though as Galen Gruman blogs, don't expect widespread 4G availability for years yet.

It's not death I fear so much as anything that's boundless, endless. When I was a child, I scared the shit out of myself when I tried to really understand what it meant for something to go on forever; I had a reaction similar to the robot from Lost in Space: "Does not compute". Which was the reason why I never found consolation in religion. So, for me, whether it's everlasting life in heaven, eternal torture in a lake of fire, or an infinity fucking Helen of Troy, it's all hell.

Submission + - Xmarks may not be dead after all

gatorfan writes: Xmarks announced it is shutting down in January of next year, that was reported a couple of days ago. Well since the out cry of people willing to pay for the service was so profound, they have since posted a pledge that users can sign if they are willing to pay for the service.

Submission + - Netflix deal expands instant watch catalog (sfgate.com) 1

SloppyElvis writes: Netflix Inc. has announced a deal, reportedly worth $1 billion, to bulk up its increasingly popular Internet streaming service with Hollywood blockbusters such as "Star Trek," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Godfather."

"What's exciting here is it really reaffirms that the Internet is a serious delivery channel," said analyst Colin Dixon, a senior partner for the research firm the Diffusion Group. Netflix has really been the catalyzing force on the market and it has illustrated very graphically that consumers are very comfortable consuming quality content directly from the Internet and in some respects, it's their preferred medium."

Submission + - Android outsells iPhone in last 6 months (nielsen.com)

tomhudson writes: "Despite all the hype about Apple's latest iPhone, Android has sold more in the last 6 months (27% of all smartphone sales) than Apple (23%). The gains for Android are coming at the expense of RIM (still #1 at 33%, down from 45% a year ago), Windows Mobile (11%, down from 20%) and the iPhone (down from 34% at it's peak 6 months ago). If the current trend continues, Android is expected to be #1 within the year."

Submission + - EVO 4G starts getting Android 2.2 update over the (trippletech.com)

hasanabbas1987 writes: We’ve just gotten a deluge of tips that EVO 4Gs are starting to get blessed with the official update to Froyo — a few hours prior to the promised August 3 rollout — so if you’ve got one handy, you’re going to want to start checking it right this second. Seriously, now that it’s got a trick flashlight app included in ROM, what could you possibly be waiting for? On a related note, if you happened to apply that early update that HTC posted and pulled late last week, the company’s working on a fix so that you aren’t out of the over-the-air update loop and promises to “get back” in “the coming days.”

Submission + - Bill Gates Doesn't Work at Microsoft Anymore (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: The recent Fortune article on Bill Gates' post-Microsoft life made one thing very clear to blogger Steven Vaughan-Nichols: 'Bill Gates was, and still is, the face of Microsoft. What Microsoft doesn't want you to know though is that Gates has almost nothing to do with the company anymore.' The fact is that Microsoft doesn't want to draw attention to Gates' absence because the company 'has been tanking in recent years,' says Vaughan-Nichols. 'While Microsoft's last quarter was far better than it was a year ago, thanks largely to Windows 7 finally picking up steam, neither Microsoft's growth nor its profits are what they were like when Gates was at the helm.'

Submission + - OS X and Linux are no magic bullet for Google (arstechnica.com)

boilednut writes: As reported by the Financial Times, Google is going to phase out internal use of Microsoft Windows due to security concerns, and will offer new employees the choice of either Linux or Mac OS X. However, contrary to common belief, this may actually result in less security — especially, against attacks similar to the Aurora hacks Google suffered last year. Windows (in particular 64-bit Windows 7) may in fact be more secure against attacks like Aurora than either Linux or Mac OS X.
