One of the coolest visualisations I've seen in awhile.

And Android has already surpassed Apple in the US (And maybe even Europe) haven't they?

1. get the dropbox app
2. buy titanium media sync (or search google for titanium media sync .apk and install via dropbox)
3. sync it with dropbox

All my photos go straight to my dropbox folder which I then access on the Mac.

Anyone here tried MightyText yet? It's really good, you can send and receive texts through Chrome, etc.

Can anyone tell me of a good Gameboy Advanced emulator app?? Having no luck finding one atm

Any recommendations of other useful apps wouldn't go amiss as well, thanks.

Got a Nexus7 and its rather brilliant. I own an iPad from work but the Nexus form factor is just great and since its Google, it doesn't have the needless bloatware. The screen is nothing compared to the iPad though and apps are limited but for what I do I think its a brilliant device.

got given a new htc one or whatever its called yesterday for nishmans just to try and get me out of the old schol.
yeah i see why bods like being able to do everything on a phone, but it so aint for me. cant get the hang of it,so hard to just make a call and even harder to text with them little buttons. fuck that.

All Samsung phones are made rubbish because of the crappy touchwiz, possibly one of the shittest and ugliest things I seen in a UI.

Android is only decent when you root it and use pure Android without al the bloatware rubbish which goes beyond some people's comprehension.

I've got an iPad so know the square root of sod all about android gear. Wife wants an android tablet for Xmas, she's sent me this deal but I assume it's a shitter. If I'm gonna drop some cash on it, I at least want to get her a decent one - any FUK faves/recommendations?
