nook for Android, finally →
Barnes and Noble had a special opportunity to be the very first bookstore backed ebook reader available on the Android platform. Instead they are dead last, beat by both Amazon and Borders. The special opportunity came in that their handheld reader, The Nook, runs the Android platform. So, presumably, very little modification would be required to port it to mobile phones as opposed to the...
New policy aims elimnate no VBAC stances. →
“Most women who’ve had a C-section, and many who’ve had two, should be allowed to try labor with their next baby, say new guidelines — a step toward reversing the “once a cesarean, always a cesarean” policies taking root in many hospitals.”
Google Music Launching Alongside Android 3.0 →
There’s still no guarantee any of the current crop of handsets will see these updates but, regardless, this is good news. Competition is good and, even when locked to the Android platform, there are not many solid offerings in this arena. Music in the cloud is one of the most interesting immediate uses of it for most consumers.
TV business kisses HDMI goodbye →
Good bye, HDMI. Long live whatever new thing the device manufacturers think we should use (though, admittedly, this does seem better).
Android 2.2 (Froyo) has been open sourced →
And all the EVO users who hate sense but still want to use their cameras, their HDMI out, and their 4G connection rejoice. Anyone want to start a pool on how long it takes to see an EVO Rom for this?
DROID X available on Verizon on July 15th →
Single 8MP Camera, HDMI Out, 4.3” screen, 1GHz Processor, Android OSP (Non HTC Sense), Android 2.2 (Froyo). Should be a very nice phone for new and existing Verizon customers.
DCTA plans no night or weekend service →
Seems a bit absurd that a rail service paid for by Denton residents and customers would be designed not to benefit that very demographic.

Face Recognition -- It's going to be the future... →
“We’re at the point where you could snap a person’s face with Google Goggles and find out their entire life story: their employment, their friends, what they looked like before they dyed their hair.” Technology destroyed the village. And it’s now technology that will bring it back together… though not quite the same.

Ten Reasons to Watch Less Television →
“The average American watched an average of 5.1 hours of television per day in 2009. That’s time you could have spent exercising, eating a meal together, entertaining, enjoying nature, meditating, enjoying a hobby, reading a book, or fulfilling a dream.” 5.1 hours a day is unbelivable. So I poked around looking for other sources to confirm this. I found many. Here’s one from the...

Lots of good bits in here that cover Dharma, the MIB, Smokey, and the Flash Sideways. “The reason Ben’s not in the church, and the reason no one is in the church but for Season 1 people is because they wrote the ending to the show after writing the pilot. And never changed it. The writers always said (and many didn’t believe them) that they knew their ending from the very first episode. I...

Even more fuel for the “why do we wear sunscreen?” arguments. In my opinion, unless it’s clearly failing at it’s job, the best answer is always the one that has kept our species on this planet for 40,000 to 500,000 years, depending on how you look at it.

Android 2.2 Froyo officially announced -- Engadget →
“Android 2.2 also features a new cloud-to-device messaging API that Google called “much more than a push notification service designed to make up for a lack of basic features like multitasking.” This is just what I was dreaming up when I started to consider how to enable “multi-tasking” without allowing multiple poorly written apps running simultaneously to bring a...

Building a Better Label →
From the first moment that consumers realized that not all food at the grocery store was created equally, food producers have used fancy packaging, slogans, and logos to help grab the attention of would-be buyers. The FDA is now seeking to improve this labeling in an effort to produce a more educated consumer. While this is certainly welcome, in the end, it almost makes as much sense to have no...

“There are two types of decision makers. Satisficers (yes, satisficers) make a decision once their criteria are met. When they find the hotel or the pasta sauce that has the qualities they want, they’re satisfied. Maximizers want to make the best possible decision. Even if they see a bicycle or a backpack that meets their requirements, they can’t make a decision until...

FDA Plans Salt Limits →
I am not, in any way, a fan of government regulation. So, I’m not saying I support this. But I am saying that I don’t think nearly enough Americans realize what’s in the food we eat. And it doesn’t help any that a food we have previously eaten can be changed without truly alerting the consumer to those changes. Prepackaged food and restaurants often use salt, MSG, PHSO,...
