Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 12:42PM Well, this just ruined my day. DLS was my morning coffee web site. I hope you guys all land jobs with Lifehacker/Gizmodo.

BeejiveIM for Android giveaway (Download Squad)

Nov 12th 2010 2:49PM I would like to try this out.

Dropbox introduces App Directory, adds caching to iOS app (Download Squad)

Sep 23rd 2010 3:22PM Annoyingly, the App Directory doesn't indicate which apps are free and which are paid (or how much the paid apps cost).

Hands on with Skyfire, the 'rich media' (i.e. Flash video) Android Web browser (Download Squad)

Jul 18th 2010 8:06PM Is this browser you speak of available for non-rooted phones?

Android 3.0 Gingerbread rumored to launch in October for high-end devices (Download Squad)

Jun 30th 2010 5:39PM Devices with 4"+ screens? Sounds like they are just stopping short of calling this Android Tablet Edition.

Picasa Web integration takes shape in Chrome OS (Download Squad)

Jun 30th 2010 3:54PM "Drop Box" folder? That sounds tortiously similar to Dropbox.

Or could this be a hint of Google acquiring Dropbox?

Use Google Docs to view PDF, DOC, and PPT on your iPhone or Android device, no app necessary (Download Squad)

Jun 28th 2010 7:36PM Unfortunately, this only allows you to view, not edit, a Word doc. While this certainly could be useful, it feels like we are still a few steps away from really making GDocs compatible with MS Office.

Understanding the Android Market security system (Download Squad)

Jun 28th 2010 1:45PM Gina Trapani talked about this last week on the This Week in Google podcast. She made a good point: that even though apps must declare which systems it can access, it is too easy for users to simply not pay attention to the warnings. (Quite like Facebook's privacy settings.)

It would be good if apps were required to explain why it needs or how it will use system services. And it would also be nice if there were a red flag warning for apps that ask for suspicious system access. But even better would be if you could deny an app's request for certain services, but still install the app, even if doing so cripples the application. Otherwise, it's all or nothing.

Thanks for this article. This is a good primer for making heads or tails of the services requests that come with new app installs. I'll be bookmarking this for future reference.

Is the new share-anything Google Docs the precursor to Google's in-the-cloud music service? (Download Squad)

Jun 21st 2010 10:40AM Nice scoop! Interesting to see what come of this.
