Only if it runs ICS. There is no reason to care, but I want my oven to run on Ice Cream Sandwiches.

This is the biggest downfall to Android: people in the consumer marketplace don't expect to have to research a product. When they see people on the commercials playing epic 3D games on an Android phone they expect to be able to do the same when the free-on-contract Android phone from 2010. People just need to do some research.

They're really starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel on these names now aren't they. Judging by the release rate of Android phones we should be out of names by 2017.

I wish the headline of this article read differently; it feels slightly sensationalist to me - I came here expecting to see that Google pulled it for some reason themselves, not that another company had filed a takedown request.

 @TiP_Stephen  @ChrisCall No, the image says that the "share price" has lost that value. The current share price of Apple is around $560 and has never been even close to that high. You're talking about market value of the company, not the price of a single share (share price).

I wonder your perspective on the official Twitter for Android client. I really enjoy it, and so do other people. With the recent changes Twitter has made though, you can't be too surprised about these developers calling it quits.

They've been doing this for a while with the Motorola phones, and I really don't understand why. Is there somebody that can explain it to me? What does Verizon have to gain from offering something like this (for sale) to employees. Personally I don't like this design, I think it stands out just a bit too much - and not in a good way  -  releasing such an item to the public is something I would immediately throw off the tablet - there are already special edition everything, so much special edition stuff it doesn't really mean anything anymore.

Certainly something that should happen on a case by case basis. Not something I think people should be expecting, or even feel entitled to. Mistakes happen but a refund of this amount is simply way over the top. I just hope people don't get greedy on what is already an incredible deal.

 @MarcOKelly Okay I understand where you were going now. Exactly, that I can get behind, it's really difficult to take a previous invention and innovate on that. Look at cars - even now they are more or less the same as they were when Ford was pushing them off the assembly line.

 @MarcOKelly I can't agree with that. The iPhone was a pretty revolutionary product. So was the Macbook, and the Macbook Air. I can't even really say the current products aren't revolutionary - they just aren't in the eyes of the general consumer. Look at the engineering that went into the Retina Macbook Pro - everything is where it is for a reason, and every reason has a strong purpose. People criticized it for not being repairable, but come on people, sit back and just take in the internal design.

According to that image the share price of Apple has dropped $100 Billion since September...I understand what they mean, but that is nowhere near correct.

 @Haloruler64 The best thing about Google's music solution is that I can upload FLAC rips to the system, it will transcode them to 320kbps files during the upload, and then I can stream them at that rate or choose to use lower quality streaming and save my bandwidth. To make it even better the app automatically caches resent and common plays. 

 

We had a point where storage on devices was getting bigger and bigger, but now it seems that things are shifting to the cloud (which is depressing considering how cheap and small flash storage is getting), but if that's the trend...that's the trend I guess.

I don't know how I feel about this. I think cloud based music services are the future. Most of the non-techie people I know are already using Pandora and Slacker and the like for the main music source during the day. Personally, with a large music collection I prefer using Google Music - Apple is heading in the cloud direction too. Does it really make sense to use locally hosted music on a mobile device? The only exception I could think of is if you have a really tight data plan - in that case it might make sense to host locally, but hasn't it already been shown that the general majority of mobile users isn't having that problem?

It's a good idea to keep in mind as well that the number of different frequencies in use by different carriers around the world on the LTE band is a whole lot to keep up with - especially for a company that has a not so great reputation when it comes to customer service. Look what happened last time they tried to support specialized frequencies - how many different versions of the Galaxy Nexus are there running around? That's not supposed to be the point of the Nexus platform - it never was. 

 

The way Google is going about it this time around seems to me like the right thing to be doing - make one phone, set the standard, use the most common frequencies, and make it accessible to more people, at the same time stay clear of any binding carrier agreements that are going to inevitably harm your reputation **glances at Verizon Galaxy Nexus on desk**.
