Jun 15th 2010 2:42PM @ExpectAFight I read that as "wake me up when he's mauled by hyenas." That would be fun to watch.

Jan 26th 2010 2:39AM @tonyunreal Yeah, like the term "applet" isn't confusing enough already.
Jan 21st 2010 9:15PM @Kerensky97Actually, when you have 50 apps, Expose becomes pretty useless because (1) the thumbnails are very tiny and (2) the human brain isn't very good at spotting things in a non-linear fashion once you get above 10 or so.Solution would be to not show 50 apps -- find some way of showing only the ones you're most likely to click on.

Jan 9th 2010 7:27AM Less hyperbolically than Frito11 and saturnblackhole, but I'm going to say that pinch-to-zoom is a little overrated as well.This happens to me a lot: I'm walking down the street with a cup of coffee in one hand and browsing on my iPhone with the other. I get to a website that I need to zoom in on, but I can't pinch because the other hand is holding a cup of coffee. I try to double-tap, but half the time I inadvertently hit a link and have to then hit back and wait for the page to reload.I have nothing against pinch-to-zoom per se, but I dislike that it's pervasiveness discourages the existence of a zoom bar or virtual buttons.Ideally, I think virtual zoom buttons or a zoom bar would be a nifty plugin for mobile Safari -- assuming, you know, Apple would ever approve such a thing.
Dec 16th 2009 1:58AM 1) Commit to your third party handset developers that they have access to the same latest and greatest build of Android that your own people do. This levels the playing field.2) Market differentiation. Target price points and feature sets that your third party partners are not. If it works, then you function as trail-blazer. Step out of the way and let your third party partners then compete to drive prices down in that area. If not, oh well. At least you're in a better position (as Google) to bear the loss.3) Be completely honest with your partners about your position. Honesty => trust => better feedback.
