I'll let someone else cover Java & Eclipse, but for Android itself, I can recommend http://www.manning.com/ableson/ - I'm currently reading it and find it good. Keep an eye up for their deals - you can typically get up to 50% off (particularly on PDF versions) if you put yourself on their mailing list and just wait for their offers to tick in.
This car is a marvel of safety technology, including the system that automatically emergency brakes the car and will avoid a rear ender in speeds up to ~25kph. And at higher speeds it'll still brake in order to reduce the impact.
Adding to this, systems such as the BLIS (blind spot information system or something like that), it's a pretty impressive feat of engineering - if you can afford it!
According to my bro who's put an order for the 2010 model, the test version he tried also alerted him to proximity to the car in front when driving at higher speeds.
For me personally I'm quite intrigued by laser cruise control systems... that would be of huge benefit to me.
Just wanted to chip in that I too love my polarised (Ray Ban) prescription sunglasses for my driving. They take away almost all the glare from the front (and there's a lot of that!), at the small price of making certain windshields (that have tint treatments) and LCD screens etc technicolour funky.
They were the most expensive pair of glasses I've ever bought, so I treat them with great care and have actually held on to them for over 3 years now. Absolutely love them!
My UV reactive normal glasses are pretty useless in comparision. The change rate is way too slow, and they don't go dark in the car. Anyway those lenses are worn down now so will get replaced with "normal" ones instead of the UV reactive.
I found another bad thing about UV reactive; going dark on an overcast day (I'm in Australia), things would get even more glum than before.
... especially expensive headphone and laptop charger ones.
Just FYI, and from my experience with my two Burmese. Their apettite has fortunately waned somewhat now that they're a bit older (3y/o).
That's not so good, but, since I'm not making anything public maybe I'm okay. However, my publication is international and one of my editors is in Spain. The version of the terms of service she sees (from Spain) does not include the phrase "which are intended to be available to the members of the public." Here's a link to that page: http://www.google.com/google-d-s/intl/en-GB/termsBy submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through Google services which are intended to be available to the members of the public, you grant Google a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, adapt, modify, publish and distribute such Content on Google services for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting Google services.
Finally, note the provision 1.5, which says:By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive licence to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services.
So are people who use Google docs signing over the copyright on everything that passes through it? Thanks, Jim Austin"1.5 If there is any contradiction between what the Additional Terms say and what the Universal Terms say, then the Additional Terms shall take precedence in relation to that Service.
