So a brilliant idea came to mind and I wish Google would use it! Not sure if others thought of it, possible, but hey: “Great Minds Think Alike!”

Why doesn’t Google (or any other providers for that matter) integrate with your mobile phone and phone book and if poeple call you, you can setup automatic email responses to them (granted you have an email of theirs on file). Ahhh! and voice-mails on your phone … NOW that would be sweet.

Come on Android! Come on Google

My friend, AWT, has pointed this out and Nakoolt has actually tried it! Way to go Google. This is pretty cool! Looking forward to more and more applications and life problems that Google Goggles will solve

“Google Body is a detailed 3D model of the human body. You can peel back anatomical layers,
zoom in, click to identify anatomy, or search for muscles, organs, bones and more. You can also
share the exact scene you are viewing by copying and pasting the URL.” – Google

I think Google have made the right call on naming this device the Nexus S 🙂 S for Super perhaps!

The phone is loaded with features that you can check out for yourself here (http://www.google.com/nexus/#/features) but once and for all, this marks the first phone with MEGA internal storage 🙂

The one thing I think this device will lack is the “quietly brilliant” HTC sense UI 😦 Excited for it nonetheless and Can’t wait to get Gingerbread on all other Android Devices!

I’ve tried to look it up on the bestBuy website, but I was blocked from my Kuwaiti IP address!! WTH. Anyways, if there’s a will, there’s a way and via using a U.S. based proxy service (CoDeen Network) I managed to get a peak.

It’s being sold at $199.99* with a 2-year contract with T-Mobile, but can also be purchased unlocked with no strings attached for $529.99.

iPhone, you’ve been warned!

 

Medic Mobile is out! I gotta say that I’m loving this great tool and platform and can definitely see the potential for it in rural and developing parts of the world. I would love to get my hands on a project to implement this. Here’s is what the development team has to say about it:

“Our approach is about tools that can be appropriated and adapted by health workers all over the globe, many of whom have little support from professional IT staff.

Mobile phones play an increasingly integral role in daily life in the developing world and some of our greatest global health challenges can be addressed through connectivity. Medic is seizing this opportunity by developing software, hardware, implementation strategies and impact analysis in mobile health.

The same team of FrontlineSMS with the same open source tools, have re-branded FrontlineSMS:Medic in their unique approach to mHealth.

Oh and it gets even better with providing a simple interface for an EHR, and it’s called PatientView

Big Shoutout to the team! You all are AWESOME 🙂

Yup! That’s so right … I’ve updated my Milestone Droid to 2.1!!! Manually 🙂 Thanks to the post engadget had on their site. The experience was painless and straight forward, but I’ll have to caution you that you’re proceeding on your own risk!

Here’s what their sources said and what I did on my Windows Vista (32 bit) platform 🙂  :

  1. Download RDS Lite and install it on your PC
  2. Download the Motorola updater and install it on your PC
  3. Download the file from the 2.1 update and unpack it (with WinRAR for example)
  4. Turn your phone off, and start it again with the up arrow button (the D-pad)
  5. Then you’ll get a black screen with the text: ‘Ok to program “
  6. Connect your device with the USB cable to your PC and start RDS Lite program
  7. Select the update file in RDS Lite (unzipped 2.1 update file .SBF format that you downloaded in step 3) and press start
  8. Let it do it’s own thing until you’re rebooted
  9. Please wait, et voila, you’re on Android 2.1  🙂

*Note: Your droid will become as if it went through a factory reset!
