Gmail ads will start learning from your email habits (Download Squad)

Mar 30th 2011 5:31PM @jakethat


It's the same system of ads based on your email. It's now just taking into account whether or not you mark certain emails as spam and therefore aren't interested in them. Nothing really additional information wise. Just sorting ads so they don't waste space advertising stuff you mark as spam.

The basic ad premise is the same as every other ad powered email service.

Google Chrome's doing nothing different than any other web browser.

Bings not a bad alternative for search but you'll deal with same ad policies.

Googles not part of a secret conspiracy, You'll go through the same general ad experience wherever you use online services.

Android Market listings will soon be able to display demo videos (Download Squad)

Dec 28th 2010 8:38PM Unfortunetly you're wrong and spoke without reading first.

"Right now, there are about 2,000 apps with newly-added videos in the Market but they aren't being displayed just yet. They're also available via the Market API, so some sites like Appsfire have already begun integrating the video demos into their own listings via the Market API"

HTC pulls sideload-capable Sync app for AT&T's Aria (Engadget)

Jul 15th 2010 4:18PM @pika2000 Are you really that stupid that you can't grasp this simple concept?

-People want subsidized phones.
-AT&T gimps their subsidized Android phones unlike every other carrier.
-Having unsubsidized phones that aren't gimped isn't going to help since they want subsidization.
-Therefore people are going to blame AT&T for gimping their phones.

Jul 15th 2010 4:06PM @Narutogrey Verizon and Motorola didn't block non-market apps. The Droid X tries to block custom ROMS, that allow you to load customized versions of Android including things like HTC Sense. It's not a good thing but it's still nothing like AT&T blocking the built-in functionality of Android to download apps from places other than the Market.

Are you an idiot or do you work for AT&T?

People want subsidized Android phones, that are not restricted. All other carriers provide that. AT&T does not. Unsubsidized and unlocked phones are great but people want to utilize their contract for a carrier subsidization. AT&T locks down their subsidized Android phones. So why should people not blame AT&T?

Jul 15th 2010 3:12PM @pika2000 You really are.... The problem here is people want subsidized phones from AT&T that aren't locked down. All the other carriers provide this. AT&T however requires all their subsidized phones to be locked down from out of market downloads. How is HTC selling an unlocked non restricted phone going to change the fact that nobody can get a subsidized Android phone for AT&T that's not restricted like they can for every other carrier? That's on AT&T.

Jul 15th 2010 3:01PM @pika2000 The unlocked version of the Aria is the Legend. To sell a phone subsidized by AT&T you have to follow their rules. One of those rules is to lock out non-market downloads.

How the hell do you blame HTC for that? It's either follow the rules or AT&T won't subsidize their phone. All the other carriers have no such restrictions. This is on AT&T.

Jul 15th 2010 2:50PM Screw you AT&T. Everyone else has no problem with non-market downloads. Why do you?

Mozilla submits Firefox Home to Apple App Store, considers approval a formality (video) (Engadget)

Jul 1st 2010 2:41AM @samsoniteace Fennec (FireFox Mobile) is on it's way, and is currently in beta. It'll include all the syncing abilities. This is just a work around for the iPhone since they can't submit a browser thats not based on the Safari engine in the Apple App store. FireFox Home will use Safari to browse and just add syncing functionality.
