Things to Come

Have you noticed anything about DroidDog lately? Maybe it looks a little different… feels a bit different. Well, it does, but we’re just starting to get warmed up. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, and while I can’t say what’s going on, or when it will be implemented, I can promise you that change is in the air. Stay tuned, because you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! For the time being, check out the forums and let me know if you want to see specific features.

Growing, growing, growing…

Alberto Vildosola joined the team this week with an insightful post on the implications of Google’s recent Nexus One Update. He’s generated a thoughtful and fascinating comment thread, so give it a read and contribute to the conversation!

Dustin Earley has been bangin’ out the news, as usual, covering topics as diverse as the Dell Mini 5 passing the FCC, the Weather Channel’s use of QR Codes, and some Android figurines that might not carry the inherent stigma of other dolls for males. Dustin’s got some new content in the works, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

For those of you with a penchant for the video reviews, check out Carlos’ take on Twicca, as well as his overview of the Open Eclair ROM. Neil Lund, Garrett Furr, and John Michael Guerra put together a multi-faceted review of Swype that you G1 owners will want to watch/read.

Oh, jeez. Did I forget to mention this? Remember that giveaway I set up where someone could win a rooted G1 simply by retweeting my announcement of the giveaway? Well, we have a winner. Congrats, Leslie W.!


There’s plenty of other news from the last week that can be found at DroidDog. Me, I need to get back behind the scenes to burn the midnight oil. Take care.
