WebOS 1.1 fixes iTunes 8.2.1 blockade

By: Array

With Jailbreaking and Unlocking there is a strange game of cat and mouse played between the jeailbreakers and Apple. It would appear that this game has also extended to the new Palm Pre.

 

Palm has released its new Web OS 1.1 and it fixes the issue that Apple just patched with the latest version of iTunes. So that means that you can still sync your Palm Pre with iTunes if you have the newest version of the Web OS.

 

Other improvements are emoticons and full exchange support, but between you and me the best part is Palm's back hand to Apple and their iron grip on iTunes.

Android to show up in House Hold Devices

By: Array

Google is simply a monster; with its search engines, massive amount of adware, a new browser and of course android. We are seeing more and more phones pop up with Android on them as this new mobile OS becomes more refined. While this is going to be worrisome to Apple to say the least it is where Android is going next that will be a larger concern.

 

Google may very well find itself deep inside our houses. If the comments made by Touch Revolution are accurate we could see Android based Thermostats, Home Cordless phones, refrigerators, and a host of other consumer products.

 

The reasons for the increased usage are many but it is mostly due to the portability, touch based controls, and of course price.

 

I shudder at the thought of getting milk from the G-Fridge.

According to Andy Rubin, there will be three more updates to Android this year alone. The updates which have been named after deserts will follow an alphabetical pattern and will be named Donut, Éclair and Flan.
