Android 2.2's Froyo goodness hitting the Nexus One already? (update: just press so far) (Engadget)

May 22nd 2010 12:27PM I wish you had consulted with XDA before applying your update!

But spread this word and make it stick on the top please in your article:

Just to be clear, if you get an OTA notification do the following:

1) Say install later
2) Install Log Collector from the Market (its written by Xtralogic)
3) Open said app and select ok
3) Email it to dev@tomreay.co.uk
4) Press home
5) Go Menu->settings->About Phones->System Updates
6) From here you will be able to install Froyo

Android 2.2 coming to Nexus One, open source community 'in the coming weeks' (Engadget)

May 21st 2010 4:59PM @plbelanger Seriously! A few weeks could be frikking 21 days! I can't wait that long goddammit! Seriously Google - expected better from ya'!

It's sadistic to expect people to wait so frikkin long after the advert without a specific date.

Google TV: Who is the competition and what are they saying about it? (Engadget HD)

May 21st 2010 2:07PM @Ben64 Are you kidding me? The company that fired Allard and shut his Courier down since the iPad was released?

Microsoft as we know it can't piece together a good idea even if someone shat the details into Balmer's mouth.

Kin - total fucking disaster - it's Microsoft out of touch with the market.
Worldwide Telescope which was launched with much fanfare - their homepage gives a date of 2009. We are now halfway through 2010.
They had terraservers for a decade before they mimiced google earth/maps satellite maps.

Logitech's Google TV companion box includes smartphone apps, we go eyes-on (updated: video!) (Engadget)

May 20th 2010 4:17PM Couple of questions not yet asked.

1. Will it playback stuff from my external drive?
2. Will it play back 'a la VLC' (=every format)?

If any of them are no = BIG FAIL!

Nokia 'combining services with devices,' says the board approves (Engadget)

May 6th 2010 1:23PM @Shravan It's not about the hardware anymore fanboy. The software builds it. We'll see who's weeping when you are left with you N900 with no updates in about a year from it's release. Especially if you have a NA version.

Re-reading your comment you look like either a troll or a fanboy with blinders.

Wait that was redundant.

Either the iphone was the wrong device for you or you're not plugged in.

There are a gazillion apps out there - my point is there is a lot of choice and not all of them are fart apps - so don't blow it out of proportion.

I will give you the example of N900. Feel the burn already? No apps, no mainstream dev support and certainly no MeeGo update for a $500 device. Shafted from both ends, eh?

He's talking about the DROVES of people that are moving to either the iphone or an android device and no longer considering Nokia devices.

I myself, frustrated with lack of US handset firmware updates, firmware fragmentation, no apps (ovi store is joke), dated OS with prices sky high moved to the Nexus One after 9 N and E series phones. It took me 1 hour of use to realize what I'd been missing (iphone was never a contention due to apple's policies) and DAMN happy about that decision.

Above, all the Nokia execs and management still living in denial that their products largely suck from an innovative perspective will result in Nokia only sinker deeper
