Well Google Android news is pretty slow round these parts so i decided to keep myself busy by combining my love for classic sci-fi with the upcoming mobile platform Android, well sort of…Below is a compilation of my personal top 5 favourite Android appearances in some very early classic sci-fi tv shows and movies.For all you Android purists please feel free to berate me in the comments over the technicalities between Androids, robots, cyborgs, simians, replicants and the like.

We’ve heard rumors here and there about Google bringing a touch-enabled Chromebook to the market, but so far nothing has really materialized. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google is definitely preparing some touch devices slated for release later this year. There’s no word on exact release dates, or what manufacturer Google will be partnering with to make these devices, but after the recent marketing push for Chromebooks in the Play Store, as well as Google’s efforts on polishing up Chrome OS, I wouldn’t expect these plans to fall through.This does put Google in an odd position, however. On one hand, these Chromebooks could potentially eat up some Android device sales. On the other hand, after Android’s wild success, the next market for Google to attack would be the desktop computer market, which is almost exclusively dominated by Microsoft’s Windows. Personally, I think the Chromebooks, if offered at a decent price like Google’s Nexus devices, would make a great addition to Android powered smartphones and tablets. And after

The Google Android platform allows the user a simple and efficient means to create applications for the mobile device. Much of the information concerning Android architecture, libraries, and source codes can be found on the Google Android web page: develop Android applications, the user can employ Netbeans or Eclipse for assistance. Each Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is free and easy to maneuver. However, Eclipse is an older application that Netbeans.NetbeansNetbeans is deemed more desirable for building web applications. To begin building a web application in Netbeans, it requires one step. This step involves downloading the Netbeans IDE 5.0 application. Its competitor’s process involves 6 steps in comparison.Netbeans contains a JSP debugger and remote debugger, a Java Enterprise Edition verifier, a choice of JSP, JSF or Struts frameworks, a deployment description editor, a HTTP monitor, multiple database connections, XML editor and validation, debug and monitor SQL commands, and no manual creation or modification of deployment

According to Amazon is about to launch their own app store for the Android platform this Tuesday, March 22. Android users will now have an additional market to shop for apps. According to wired, the plan for Amazon is to be more in control of the market like Apple’s Itunes. Amazon will decide what content goes in their market and they plan on charging less for the apps then the Google Android market. Will any of this create confusion?The critics of Android have been saying that the problem with Android is fragmentation with multiple manufacturers and multiple OS versions. For some reason the consumer never listened because over 60 million Android phones were sold last year. Now those same critics are trying to say that the Amazon app store will create confusion. Google’s Android platform was created to give choice to consumers not put them in jail. » Read the rest

Well that didn’t take long did it? Google officially announced the redesigned Google Play Store earlier, and the APK is already available to download for manual updating. All phones and tablets with Android 2.2 or higher will get the new update over-the-air, but unfortunately it will take roughly 3 weeks to hit every device. If you’re like me, you’re impatient and don’t feel like waiting around, so all you have to do is grab the APK from the download link below and install it just like any other APK. In case you’re not familiar, just make sure you have “unknown sources” checked under settings/security. Then from your phone/tablet, tap on the download link below, then tap Download (5.9MB) and it will save it to your phone/tablet. Tap on “” in your notification panel, answer OK to replace system application, and tap Install. After it’s installed, just tap open to start enjoying the new card-themed Play Store. Enjoy!!Download LinkThanks to all that sent this in

If you spend much time at restaurants or bars, particularly sports bars, you’ve probably seen the Buzztime trivia games playing on TVs around the room. If you ask, your waitress will bring you out a little “Playmaker” device that interfaces with the Buzztime servers so you can enter your name, login, and play along with other people — in the restaurant with you, or even people at other Buzztime locations in other states. You can engage in trivia games, puzzles, and even card games right from your seat in the restaurant. And now, you don’t even need the Playmaker device, because you can have a mobile app on your Android phone that accomplishes exactly the same purpose.The Mobile Playmaker app brings several advantages over the traditional Playmaker device. For starters, you’ve probably already got your phone with you — no more waiting on the waitress to bring you one. And while I’ve never encountered the problem myself, hypothetically, the restaurant you’re out could have already passed out all their Playmaker devices. But one of t
