It’s starting to get really warm outside, and usually that means more outside activities with the best android phone apps out there! Personally I have taken up hiking every other weekend, and living in Pennsylvania I have plenty of places to go. But I had a thought while out on my latest hike… are there apps for my phone to make a hike easier, or at least, help me find more trails I may not know about? What if the worst comes to pass and I get lost? What apps can help fellow hikers or campers out there to stay safe and have fun?
It seems RIM is making this an annual event for it’s employees… Well, I guess they won’t be employees for long. RIM, showing some pretty bad growth and continuing to lose it’s hold on any kind of cell phone market is axing over ten percent of it’s employees. The internet is buzzing with ideas on how RIM can save itself, but it’s more of what they should have done instead of what they can do. Many folks think it’s too late for anything to save the Blackberry from certain death.
Many of us burn through one gallon of gas, easily, every day. I only drive a short distance, but I know that every two weeks I have to fill up my tank, leaving me about one gallon a day. Many of us also plug our cell phones into a car charger when we go on long trips. But how long could you potentially charge a cell phone with just the power from one gallon of gasoline?
Seems a neighborhood in a town called Cupertino is a bit miffed. Why? Well Apple is building a giant spacestation like campus in their backyard, probably the future spot for all their big events and announcements. But what’s their problem? Isn’t this something a town normally would love? A big center that could bring in tons of tourism cash to their local economy? Well… Not so much.
Well, it was a nice run while it lasted. With a 14 year long streak of being number one in the cell phone market, Nokia is now officially number two behind Samsung, the creators of the popular Galaxy S line of Android Phones. Nokia has been the leader of cellphone sales for well over a decade, and why wouldn’t they be? they practically pioneered the market with affordable cell phones and durable hardware. My first phone was a big hefty Nokia with it’s green screen and limited features. But what has lead to Nokia’s slow decline and can they save themselves before it gets any worse?
