The Rise of Android

Even if the battle looked relatively close for a long time, Google and Android have been steadily emerging as the mobile operating system of choice for consumers and gadget hounds alike.  Celebrated for its wide-open customization and the fact that it could run on a toaster, Android is certainly a great product that is more than worthy of our wallets.

Now, this isn’t to say that we here at Mission:Geek all agree that Android is number 1 in terms of quality (and we now know how I feel about blind brand loyalty), but these numbers don’t lie, folks.  The rise of Android indeed:

What that sub-set includes will be subject to review, but will always be closely connected to the history and the present nature of the society in which we live, including our international connections.

  2. I know you are concerned about Endurance, speed, extreme conditions. That’s ok because the VENTURI GLOBAL CHALLENGES are real exploits at both human and technological level, fantastic adventures which have adopted the world as their testing-ground in order to demonstrate the superiority of VENTURI achievements, from Shanghai to Paris, on the Bonneville salt flats in Utah and, soon, in the Antarctic.

  7. That gave the Prime Minister the opportunity to seize the high moral ground, and he never relinquished it. He agreed with that the regulatory framework for the press had to be changed, but he saw dangers in crossing the “Rubicon” of statutory legislation. He asked to join with him in finding a common position on the issue, and called on the press to come forward with their own proposals on how the principles outlined in Leveson could be implemented.
