Ep. 78: Results and predictionsWe take a look back at last year's Android predictions and take our best guesses for what to look for in 2012.
Our predictions your email and I got a new phone all of that and nothing more on this week's edition of Internet house weekly for December 21 2011. I'm just becomes a -- and -- -- -- -- what's up. As a going on all right last of the year yeah yeah -- -- show again Julian who doesn't. Yeah. We are taken AS TE zeroed out like all. End of year journalistic endeavors do and are putting together -- I think it's either you do prediction show or you do a best of retrospective. Show right yes -- -- -- -- this point it was just can't -- -- -- -- on the home. I'm not tarnish the good initial audience later opened gifts would. There will not be -- better -- it shows this year and this. -- you have a week. Try to do the math and I know I just that a really know enough about that -- got a new summary I got a new phones Regina getting. I got helix and nexus -- and I'm surprised. I may yet I wanted to be really angry and thumb. -- of a I don't know what to would call it but anyway. Knock -- one just to show them that Tenet and think they would really care yeah well so -- got one. I went to the store on opening day you or whatever it is the Verizon rep told me that there were ten people waiting outside. When they open to adding get there until -- -- But. Tag Emma Stone and the rest -- -- was the not my favorite guy -- -- put it out there -- It for resident in every bill you can work on your customer service. You see if you really wanna say risen in reveal its. It's -- -- -- -- that the phone's been topped the you know better than that to do no better than the caught him in the scam. And all worked out okay. Anyway the phone like -- -- it's great phone for Jesus kind of redeemed in -- I know you've had it for awhile yet -- students when Angelina and Bono like you know it's basically like the especially Verizon's four because it's so fast. If you were used to driving a car sixty miles an hour and it suddenly start -- -- 12100 miles an hour. Like it just changes your for your reference to -- like -- -- -- -- thirty -- -- 12100 is just. A -- that speed but it it it is a really extremely quick that's -- -- Because I you know melts on May be at best case they get one megabit modems and test here is gonna like eighteen or nineteen -- down yet. Com -- -- -- much faster. And you couple that with a faster processor and it's just it's actually really good experience. There's definitely a couple ice -- and which bugs found. There was in Nash and -- and with apps that are not compatible I've had way more for scripts of apps then. That I had before. In a certain little UI things that are really ironed out I guess that -- stands -- recyclers. It has a lot of photo editing stuff built -- -- for example do red eye reduction you that you can't to red eye reduction when your resume to into a photo only zoomed out. So it's virtually impossible to actually touch to -- To do the red eye reduction -- could now actually get it. To work. Says there's a couple little things like at which management -- -- but overall I'm up. Right have you have you had Google wallet into -- billion. Perhaps not active list that would then apparently there's there are no root required hack now really day after the phone came out there -- another group required hackers. Kazaa but was really before keep even hit -- a hit shelves. And there was not a hack that required a -- but then within the week. Of the launch there was a a new -- required hack. To install on Google wallet. -- Onto your phone and I think you still get like the a couple of books bonus cash that you would have got and you just started -- -- while -- -- Aren't well I'm gonna do -- generally known election -- by some coffee and actually have a couple places -- -- but yeah well I mean and then you know the you can use it it and you buy gas -- it. You know anywhere that an event like MasterCard. Easy pass thing. Where Gannett called. Area but I need to talk about them in later in the ship. Com -- and it -- who gets of the main event lifted to the main event. So let's talk right houses nor. First rate over last year's predictions. And will -- ourselves. Really declare winners with -- I have then. Are we gonna -- -- we have been an equal number of predictions. I don't know we'll do -- -- Larry Fine terror and decided the winner of that chat -- the -- -- A best. How do you -- smiley faces if you keep me. Amounts -- chat room will decide who winners. Will -- towards the end of this show. -- -- or give your predictions for January 12 and then we're gonna read Samir predictions in email and voicemail. So let's get to it. So it -- you had three predictions last year I did. What was your first port restriction -- Begin to work on better in car connectivity for -- devices. Tell -- use of its maps app. -- gain ground. From Apple. And its iPhone. You've already started taking -- that in car navigation so maybe they want to be make -- move to replace it -- who. -- we aren't that. I mean you'd -- -- -- I mean I think. And -- like Google has really me. The moves to do I think more it's been third parties that have moved to do -- right. This time last year we were. Coming up on honeycomb. We were hearing about the big Google sort of device connectivity initiative in an -- in the during the -- over the course of the year that we. Start to see -- -- -- better integration and things like screen Schering. When you are in your car. So that you don't have to -- -- -- to for example choose a new. A playlist from your listening to music but we've seen none of that and we haven't even heard -- -- mentioned. A load of eight. Not a serious mentioned and it in ice cream sandwich so I'm gonna count that. It's probably will definitely a loss though -- really see. Too much of -- moving mean it seems like. The pieces are in place there and there were built a couple of devices that kind of you know take advantage of of the Bluetooth connection. To do things like. -- from -- With Toyota in -- -- user -- your phone's Bluetooth connection basically. To connect to the Internet. But it uses its own interface on the export it's still not exactly what I was looking torso and -- a but it's a wrong on this one. The wrong on this -- okay. Announced that important you do -- art. So we get one wrong for you -- -- My main let's -- first one was that Google TV this is a very easily integrated Google TV you'll die as a standalone device. So. It I don't think it's gained any ground but it's not -- it's treading water -- -- -- -- idea -- -- -- definitely -- -- -- -- and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- a little bit longer -- -- and on the whole lot I'll have more say about that later in the show out of that coal product which in a -- -- I had Chrome OS. Will go the way of Google Wave and it wouldn't survive the year I fit I assume that it would probably get absorbed and injury since. As sort of like mobile -- seem like they -- going and you know pretty much a similar direction. Chorus is still around though it is still around of some manufactures came out. -- -- -- -- -- and Google made a pretty big push for will Google made a pretty big push for it. -- They're -- conference iGoogle -- But then in saving after that there -- like check it out. Google cruel as -- -- have it on a netbook and then they just haven't seen anything else about it all year. Not really so I mean -- again much in the same way that that Google TV. The sort of -- water right at -- Chrome OS is still trading water but it. Definitely the on the on the count of a gets absorbed and integrated in -- -- of the year that -- wrong there. I think you're wrong as well I think you could make this prediction again. For 2012 and you -- might be -- in new console will see if you do. Com. All right so. Let's see my second one was that entry tablets will be even at or above the iPad and -- chairman and the -- -- So. I eat when -- initially was reading your mail us -- heroes like while -- a way off the mark. But then I just looked at sort of the of this article in -- weeks that gives the latest. Breakdown and it says that currently under is that about 40% market share compared to 60% market share. IOS tablets. But I was actually shocked that I thought it was more like 2880. Those being counted as -- hundred tablets rate at this point which they are com. So there's certainly not you've been. I was calling myself close on this on -- I'm happy to take wrong as well you really think. Come. And close is wrong -- almost only counts in horseshoes in hand grenades. So there aren't there -- that has been -- strong so there are ago. We are both -- for two. Around. The -- wetsuit -- -- my third one with a goofy long time someone will build an injury that runs on Android because the world needs more robots. At least say -- -- we start to -- encourage showing up in more. A non Smart phone a non tablet devices so I guess this is the and then prediction that we both made I think are a DS -- in three -- your bit. Is when it is via. -- -- -- for to make sure there's no Lander robot out there I've seen one and an NC -- and there's stores like devices. We have started to see injury show -- in non Smartphone non tablet devices. Parents has released. And I will be testing -- over the over the Greek. In injury at least -- -- -- Singled in unit that's just basically a -- free car stereo it runs on -- skinned version of injury to west. And and I think we've seen some other things -- -- Like if that's the tablet that I'm thinking about will went with the as a there were no one of the one of the European and other manufacturers -- Kind of installed it started installing only injury tablets and their export the national tablets that are so it is but it -- line -- -- I don't know if you're talking and we we also have either -- the beginnings of seeing -- -- those injury. Powered watch -- interfaces were seeing a lot of lose the and I also injury based on account that is -- -- I hope I am back in here you said an Android based Android well I mean it goes -- -- Com going on and we'll see injury or at least you'll start to see our in -- instead -- I'll give you half. App on -- give me one honestly does give you the one act. And I'm taking it. All right -- will it will leave it says -- even for the for the decision to Stephen yes I'll I'll be the judge here thank you. I didn't -- -- -- has -- open Android thing yeah I think that's a map no. And. An indefinite centers at this point. Three strikes are -- time to get my next -- and then. Maybe you while I'm reading more mine can start reading Jason how can do that parent. Just do it in -- voice adjustment I don't know that. Is going to be you -- trouble was decent answer aren't that took. My third one was -- that there will be an -- based -- released. And I could give the long -- at speeds traded just by himself -- tidbit in the end it's wrong. Act will year's deadly romances I mean -- even rate. I'll just tell you have yet I did a lot of different ruling yesterday to try and find and -- in -- I media in -- show from last year's one of the top hits on Google created for tablets that are really -- -- That's a studio little talk there is of the -- based he's toast. -- -- Jason. -- -- first -- is written IOS app releases at the same time. Close in gas it's like 5050 is still I don't feel like it's still. Seen time there -- some. Driven you really depends on the culture of the developer and what they're trying to do a lot of developers of steel. Targeting Apple first. I getting that -- and in doing -- a couple of months will have an Android app. On the other hand a lot of smaller developers. Seem to and then that the first example of usually established developers on the other analysts smaller developers. Will -- seem like they seem to target you know injury first because it's easier to develop to its -- injury -- -- without having to go through the the the Apple market. -- -- process and and then and then there a couple of them that are starting to to do. Same time -- I can't -- me up -- my head but it. There are -- -- -- there are a number of an app developers who are kind of waiting and doing voters in time it anyway would you judge that as. I think it it's com. Policy partially right yeah it's not I don't think it's the norm yet I think it's more the exception EE vs those you know to be fair last year. It is pretty was never happening right I'm so it's closer to being -- it's not quite ready yet but I think next year it's probably -- in here. Way to move. Close -- account so mark your own merit as is the wrong -- -- map. Every gap would steer it through next. -- injury -- I fragment expectation will persist. I don't however is going -- on -- -- without him. Really come but the I think I'm right there -- its. Yeah. They don't have been as great as it is there aren't just isn't next Jason's next was. -- big for injuries. That are -- supports a more ad supported gains. Being -- -- -- the free games that currently in the case. So yeah yeah yeah and other militant and then there are a number of cases. Where an app that you pay for on non Apple and Apple's market. Will be free and ad supported in the injury -- -- -- I think developers. What the basis -- cheap -- Which is true then I guess. I mean you know we don't -- -- for -- for Apple products so in that since you have but I mean. And had no idea how do you feel that I think is -- -- and I think it's certainly more than before human you know it's a natural progression of things there are some before that we're now open. And also there's some -- I think there's more of a culture in the injury market as. And -- a try before you buy sort of right there's a lot of light for yeah additionally users the labor in the scheme you need immediately -- couple levels or it may be ad supported. Or the same thing with with just you know regular. Non gaming apps -- it is often like we get the regular version but you don't wanna see ads. And union dropped due to go to books in the market and -- to the -- -- supported version. -- yet but very quickly yeah a theory so close -- yet. RA so my last -- Which I think is pretty good school releasing music store competitor to iTunes for Hanford. Well yeah meego on the money the -- that is the best. Prediction that I have room left and -- -- Now of the -- area. For -- to decent last two. That would be that we would see gaming focused hardware. Sony Xperia play. Definitely. Yes a slew him -- -- rates. And that we'd see a new phone for Jason. I kind of people who want Google+. Knows he's been there couple -- and hear pray and I think he data he did finally. Break down like me and by the yet nexus during some the only one who doesn't have -- -- now. The only person on the world in the general have a nexus pretty much just of the thunderbolt -- FYI people -- Andrew who were wondering. Still using the thunderbolt he might have the last laugh -- I don't know. And in they'd nexus. Two comes out in January there's always gonna be a something coming out and some time. The and you still. I figure -- we will figure -- -- everyone had like a different number. We'll see who got the most percentage rate and that -- We will reward people who take more risks so moon looks like -- 0%. -- for three. All three of my predictions are wrong and although -- equation lows resident has percent who's still on the show well at that. If figure foreshadowing here because you get than -- two out of three. I was rich Hewitt to -- to -- five but it for the achievement oriented as a 3%. And bad teeth and get re edit his or which would permit given factors and hardware -- the winner -- -- four edit. Got a four vote in and it doesn't have -- 5% correct it is -- years before it -- and -- you to winner and awesome. Aren't out. That about at the run off it but knowing that the -- yeah I. Animals are -- for it lets see if you can redeem yourself. Next year yes. Sue me awhile to be a long and break the entity. If we only to links here to redeem -- And can be La oh yes okay so let's take a break for that -- Wit and prediction and -- is coming up next stay with -- And we're back -- -- there was a good point me in the chat -- actually about one of -- that I think would disqualify. One of his predictions -- make me in -- winner maybe it is. We're really knows what you know and that is the last to a new phone producers have been hit control over. Which means that that -- -- merit. Let's open him at 66%. To 6066. Point six whenever he's not here -- still the winner. -- -- -- The -- move on you got some predictions for 22. Well -- as you -- -- the back and -- the literature so -- my first one I is kind of a piggy bank. On and one of my last year's guesses that one or more worldwide auto maker will and adopt or at least announce the development of I injury or a heavily skinned and injury based. Version of an in dash OX -- standard infotainment -- that's like. Your navigation and you're. -- audio playback your climate controls all of that everything that would go through a touch screen in the car. I'm thinking that it is one of the auto makers is gonna wise up and -- -- wire we wasting our time developing the sort of thing. When -- already exists. At least one after market will. Least two or three after market. In car entertainment manufacturers have done this already I don't senior reason why. Over the course of of 22 will we see at least one worldwide -- -- -- North American manufacturer but perhaps one of the European manufacturers will -- -- we're just gonna replace our. Our whole index 12100 dollar navigation system with an index 12100 dollar injury. Based navigation system corporate. I think this is a good -- Think it's the privacy adjustment. -- -- -- -- -- -- My first one which I think is probably my safest bet is that they Sirius Siri competitor will be released. But it won't for its -- -- -- series better will be released for Android. But it won't be as good as here. So -- I think the first part. You know there's. May geo project. I don't know how much and -- and Olympus seems to be released next year. Down. But I am saying that won't be as good but that may be -- subjective judgment. It may be ME -- like Google's been. Pretty good already. Does which -- recognition. In a year I think. Who knows what they could do. Who knows. But I mean dangerous if things though is that Andy Rubin has said and we don't want to build on your phone to be your personal assistant and it. But it already years -- I mean without even without voice I feel it is it that. In response to Syria have I think that maybe something will come around on the seemed like a reactionary statement -- it seem like it may be something he comes around -- As the -- develops. But I you have -- your -- already like the hub for everything you do. And I mean I've seen just you know -- in the way that you know enabling voice command for for very. I guess is basic sort of queries to -- it can make a phone or even mean a discussion is testing a Garmin Nuvi. And had voice command and just being able to talk to it while you drive instead of like looking over and tapping a touch screen and crashing into a baby. It can just make a device that much more cool it's like -- was all of all right with this Garmin Nuvi in -- -- all the voice command alt click holy crap. Is the coolest thing ever and that sort of wealth factor I think it's just what injury needs. You know ping and click unlock an Apple to face -- cool. I think he's gonna have to come around Gould probably definitely come around on that sort of a promise of you know -- your data but I ran on static and yet aren't running onyx. I predict we're gonna start seeing more third party devices -- like. Speakers. Unity -- -- in use RFI speaker systems car steers and stuffed a that are labeled. Width. Something akin to works with Android or prominently displaying the injury logo on the front of the box -- on the promotional materials. And despite the fact that they probably won't do much more than they -- -- -- with USB charging artillery Bluetooth connectivity. I think we've already started to see that coming into the holiday season. Who was it that I recently Sullivan best buy and -- -- that they now have. Warner to of those sort of like injury phone docks. That you like Pluto two ministers like a speakers BBC -- -- we've had trial like we've had for iphones and an iPod for her almost a decade now. I think it's another good prediction I mean we -- you. All the time -- it was a pint of ice right stuff so it was you know this seems inevitable given the market here yet they're gonna start seeing more and more of that but my problem with that is that. -- there's not really anything in place. To actually make something work with Android besides Bluetooth -- -- -- regular US creditors and the connections are all different -- and classes yet and it is kind of bomber maybe who can mandate. Here's where the ports -- I don't think it will I thought they would last year at a -- here they'd need clinical sort of moved to standardize but I kind of -- Who wants to be hands off with that whole you know yours with the USB port -- And fortunately your rate. -- my next one which may recognize from earlier this show is that Google TV world died. It give it to you or not directly twelve and in fact they will sign a deal with at least one other device manufacture. So I'm just gone -- 180 degrees the other way from last -- a case of -- with a settlement I don't know. I don't what I would you want them -- I mean if I was dammit I want them senate Samsung hasn't been -- -- the manufacturer in the world of TV's. One that Sony. There to have the deals that will mean -- not something like seeing Google's TV in the PlayStation PlayStation four now with Google. -- I mean that's fine -- and if I was them I'm just trying to meet your -- More outlandish ideas of you know we're likely knows I'm not -- that I'm committing to just what I said and no more. So. -- -- the -- would you mind. -- -- -- -- -- I predict there were gonna start seeing. More prominent and more in depth integration of Google's plus one in Google+ social networking element. Into the core of the injury OS on the phone the tablet. Mostly -- I think Google's kind of still struggling. To gain traction with the services. While balancing it's under previous approach he spoke on with things like I -- pool -- that. Other -- as Google players they're loving they're still a stigma and floating around after that. But I think it would be kind of you were -- start to kind of see. But things like this year menu does is in increasingly -- to Google+ the top. -- -- mean that -- to -- Google+ one and I think we're gonna start seeing more. You know of you know when you sign into your phone. You know -- -- automatically populate in your contacts. With Google+ sort of things which you were seeing a similar thing on in Gmail -- -- you know there's automatic Google+ a circles labels in Gmail. So just seems like. Rather than trying to -- FaceBook directly. In Disco -- -- -- the -- aren't -- we're gonna do better timeline at the Google's gonna go at some point looking Gillick we've already get lake and via a billion people running around injury phones -- just make it Google+ users I think they're -- attention to it so that -- freak everyone out. And by just automatically posting their lives step I think you're right here. The -- say about that planet parent let's go ahead and rate correct correct yeah go ahead and. Call featured nexus devices will come from Motorola. So I'm saying. -- walls that they speak of between Motorola and Google. Nexus tonight's. What is the out of them and and I filled up that -- -- -- about it. I think about it will really long time to think about -- -- -- An excellent. Its program for injury. The compound particularly got to know that it's coming. Out of prediction years repeated in news story will mean you know it's been a news story for years -- -- again yet so to between thirteen is a work -- -- Alright. I just want one point mix here and her. I think you're gonna lot of -- -- here. So let's -- one has two more Android will have over 60% market chairman and between to a so I think I see it could be even -- -- mapped. Baum. It may well I want the points are not being crazy here -- it could be like 70% but it especially factoring Kindle fire and -- can also -- You know other crazy devices like -- But so do you think they're gonna get that market -- just -- But it basically the reducing Apple's market share or just by increasing the market relative to Apple I think they're -- increased. They're gonna do two things in my mind -- increase the pirates and all the people who don't have Smartphones yet. Because they want cheaper phones. Smartphones at some point to -- -- -- gonna at all but a lot. And then I think a Blackberry users you know maybe unit die next -- -- -- -- reflect that. And enter it will be -- picked up those users. At least a good sexes is that that's where it's -- -- our course here. Windows Phone 7. Yeah rally next year it -- could rallying blows this whole thing. So it's not a snippet. -- now know that -- -- aren't that reminds program that they -- Aren't lecture last. Com. My last bit is that in tweets will we will see. In Armageddon caused by resonance cascade created by interference between -- -- -- -- -- signals. And the increased proliferation of four GL TE radio signals the violent path of RF generated by the inevitable boom of Quad Core Smartphones and tablets. And Mariah my -- -- Ortiz amazing technicolor -- Six. Okay the world's gonna end it's gonna that is matters and you kind of almost sort of brought it back to enter a little of their way. Look it is commonly if it's known at this point that the four GL TE. Of the band interferes -- GPS signals. But then like. Girls -- gonna see more Quad Core phones I'm just predicting the world -- and we'll just move on. Of my last one is only slightly less crazy. There will be in Mandarin based coffee -- and -- it off. Because that's what we need. Yeah and I think it's the world's obesity go to Siemens both the -- we the last when it is that in no way dude. But in idle and lets you meet in -- beat and as I encountered an over continued we're gonna -- -- -- I'm the precedence of people be Jason Howell and through that -- now. What if I finance one. The cal tech interviewed would if you like start. Would -- -- the petition known as a starter project charter president and injury based. Or someone else has -- contribute to many. You mean union I think that in Oklahoma's -- in less than 50% of the funding. -- cancer found and it's awesome. -- those are predictions. So you know -- -- next year it will tell you -- for writers aren't as cute gimmick that no no he wants -- to. I have a production and -- based on a rumor better but. I believe that Google is gonna make a tablet next year. And they're gonna lock it down kind of like the iPad mantra obviously. But that's my prediction I think Google's gonna have their own tablet and -- gonna come out and it's gonna be huge I think so -- -- -- based tablet something. I mean like. You know it's gonna be very I think it's gonna be locked down the gathered entire ecosystem -- -- -- -- you very cool people and go bonkers over. Aren't -- -- -- -- -- that -- -- but the lock -- -- the the efficacy seven nexus based outlook was gonna be awesome is when that -- comes true -- only ones Stephen wind up via a 100% exactly. Images percentage is not such a thing you know it's good to completely rewards -- who -- vague and doesn't because you could have five safe bet so we need test -- -- everything we need to have some ranking in. Will they need to have odds on each one. When you mean so -- are awarded based on laws like this one is a really. Gutsy Bette looks like you have -- dreary place to go to everyone go to if you go to. I don't know a roulette table with a hundred dollars and you just put. Hundred online -- black whatever sixteen is like fifteen plex -- -- right -- like sixteen. And you let it ride you know that you they're better -- there vs placing five separate bits of twenty dollars. We'll come back next here at the new ranking system analyst and of this -- the current rating system currency unit and I asked I -- -- -- -- me you. You -- big you sometimes you you know you lose in a new window. Minutes of equipment out of today. Our first email is from Robert who wrote about a bunch of stuff but he also -- some predict predictions in here. -- says amid predictions are not toasters or phones that -- -- me. I predict more development on the in -- as a potential desktop OS like a combination of from a us Mandarin. Harry's hopes to my laptop with a transformer love the battery life and synergy with my phone once again -- have you been up. Yes totally agree with you guys on looking at defects of our beloved OS that's how we improvement -- -- Robert. -- I don't think we're gonna see that from Google. I mean the open nature of Android means that. Will probably hear from someone ground we've already started to see it from moral what -- you know. -- atop the lists or whatever. When you plug the bionic or of the retiring to their their laptop or it is physically safe from -- -- has more development on it boots. You know I was just like seems -- -- -- aren't. Cool. The -- says hands on just been immune to scream that. -- obviously it is very happy to them with -- -- -- properly thank you Bob. -- my tweets will stream headline is that I'd wait -- which injured this now I can't -- so that -- -- to the -- Among 2012 dream -- I'd love to see would be Google announces galaxy nexus variant with a physical keyboard yeah. I'd love to see galaxy -- Sunday becoming got to have a physical keyboard -- entering user that comes in from -- -- -- -- -- Iowa is Bob like a year ago -- -- strategy is an incredible and other virtual keyboards and now with nexus and here a little faster but -- I think it's not worth -- purple can wait. Yeah I feel like I use white. About 95%. Of the time in about 2% of the time I have a Bluetooth keyboard. But they're still like that. 3% of the time where it is and somewhere were -- city keyboard down but I've got to write more than two paragraphs on a phone -- and I would just love to -- -- -- -- -- -- keyboard to -- Some sort of -- -- wrinkle in space time that the keyboard would -- come out of nowhere -- projected keyboard there's gonna project will you ever -- -- -- at the better they give iPhone or reject that yet the thing about keyboards there was the tactical. Read this would speeds via being able to like feel your finger sliding across the key that's. Especially if you're gonna be -- simply tapping on -- desk is this week for me. Com -- so. It's -- -- skip to. The one from. Berlin. Nam. Had as it would like to know what to -- a -- actually news is -- all important. Is it all important to wipe it when -- flash rom what exactly is the function of -- cache -- accelerated her -- important data when wiping. I -- -- cash is. How you buy things in the city of overpriced when. Net and I delta is of is the virtual -- -- -- of the that the virtual program that. Then the virtual machine and in injury rate that basically. Runs all of your dot APK files. And the -- cash. Is where like all of -- you know little chunks of data that those that EPK files need to run a stored. Kind of like data to feed the example that I have seen is that it's similar to that paprika prefix spells and windows that seems sort of like cash that you clear. Sometimes when you -- you reboot your machine. Aren't so I think most standard apps are developed and Java. Doesn't -- compile it -- who gets in and I apologize but interpreted. You know as it is run vs like languages like CR. Pylons -- machine language. And then are -- run much faster it's of this. Caches the result of these certain of interpretation so next time -- in the same program -- -- mind any of that right. You know I think the most important thing lake -- worry about -- -- unit. Anomalous really -- is an important data over. I say you should back up anyway if you're gonna you know it's only wrong rate as your many messed it up losers anyway. Oh what happens when you're when you're squat when you're switching roms and why it wiping the -- cache is important is that a lot of times. You know there may be -- tiny little bits of information that. You know reference things that don't exist anymore -- referenced. A media driver that slightly different or. A kernel that's changed. You know in in in that the switch between -- And out of the purpose of wiping the -- -- is that you start from scratch. It makes it easier for you to troubleshoot when there's something when something goes wrong as -- -- work -- everything is generated from scratch either the next time you. When you boot your phone. With the phone -- app runs. It's not running on old information. It generates enough fresh information and makes it easy year. Especially if you ever need help or you want to figure out what's wrong -- something. To -- is cleaner. That's what you want to do it but yet again.

I've had mine for about two months now and have had nothing but a positive ownership experience. I know that I wasn't in early adopters alliance is patient with greatly tempered but it seems like you'll tend to not -- a device -- down its past. Angrily into your podcast and mystic -- -- -- -- one of the few places reckons he. Geeky Brothers in the media think that's a PH AKA. And the are right in my -- and -- a -- I'm able I mean again. As it was one of those devices that it was that -- the flagship device it it was probably one of Google Motorola's biggest flops. Unity -- -- lot of promise lot of hype built up around that ended in inevitably you will be disappointed and end. I think the reason we give of the -- so much. Crap. Is that you know there was a promise of like there -- a lot of promises meter on the device and I did just mean you know. I didn't really ever get addressed until it was officially usurped as the best of its on the market it was. It was it was -- it was sort of a non player by the time they get around adding four G. A before they get around fixing a lot of the bugs for the enable the SD card slide. So -- people who come in now with the lord expectation.

Nexus oh well suited -- mobile access or Verizon nexus fall thanks very much -- So has already been likened -- TA for the Verizon Alice nexus right. Since launch proceeded to lake. Bored out of that three year I think that's Ford Canada too as soon as I took my phone out of the box that actually said you'll update your phone you think -- on for Canada to have Florida about three is GSM is supposed to come out.

While Obama or outcome of elections are welcome welcome to -- -- -- on -- and -- ultimately -- LG Optimus -- must first Smartphone equipped phone. I wanted to ask you know. What is the future of phones like the optimists are certainly. It didn't cost a fortune but I find it supremely capable -- -- a couple of features like and so rights -- the battery electric fantastic. And after fixing -- couples quarks. -- namely SD card -- amounting. Apart from being crippled -- -- of small internal storage I'm it's fantastic for what the future phones there's gonna triple. Quad Core processors gigantic screen to turn up front on what the future phones but has also found a lot questions will act on -- -- -- The small number -- -- phone will highlight the problem with my opinion removed. -- to ST what -- -- injuries and promote apps not being able to remove two ST can't understand core apps. They just -- controlled functionality that you think they schools should mandate that every app. Short of court -- -- functionality. Next vehicle to be moved STR must have yogurt have a -- -- instant movies pretty quickly yeah I'm there I think it's a great question and I kind of alluded to it in my prediction with Merck terror that I think phones like that that are. -- mid to low end. Nom are gonna be really big next here yet and -- always be around. And its the I think they're gonna be bigger really bad because I its had been monitor predictions -- as people move from feature phones to Smartphones I think they will. -- to the lower end of Smartphones and that's -- I think it's also going to be like that that the market slide is that. Yeah right now like -- all screen phones Reno reasonably speed processors. This time next year. -- we consider to be a reasonable. That -- a phone like the HTC thunderbolt. Which was a top tier phone an alliance to will be at the bottom here. We'll start seeing phones with this level of -- out of capability I think. You know -- -- process where pretty reasonable enough storage space died down and a hundred dollars to give away free price point I think. By the end of next year. And as far as like apps that can be -- the FD. Most apps can be moved to the ST the the thing that keeps non core apps from being moved TSE is that if the app. Uses a widget. Or is that I enable enables you to use the which is something like extreme which lets you put -- task manager widget or a music capital to put a music control widgets. Guy you can't move those to the SD card because bowl when you plug your phone into the computer the widget breaks. Has yet not there anymore behind it matters and that's pretty much that's usually -- -- -- delineation of which -- should be able to be moved to the SD card which in and there are a couple of other like games and -- that are paid apps that. They just really don't want you moving the app Ralph for -- -- Rim purposes but it that in some just haven't been up to right yeah additionally.
