yeahandroid: Google Music - Taking a wrong aim →

It almost does what iTunes Cloud Service has done - except for WMG standing in its way. It also goes one step above it by providing two bonuses: Store your own song. Songs you have not…

How did Android make the iPhone better?
Though Android has been often abused, and bullied by iPhone fans, they should really thank Android for making their iPhone better. The intention of the post is not to brag about Android, rather to highlight how an industry benefits from competition. Even the “world’s most advanced OS” benefits from its competitor.

Android and Litigation
Of late there has been so much noise about android and litigation. These are my thoughts about them. First litigation speaks more about the competition, than about android.
