Here is a long-term personal learning project that I started today. And Google ended up unveiling a new mobile phone platform, Android. You see, cold beeswax does not spread evenly on wood so the surface of the stick was covered with little globules of wax. Second, AT&T saw opportunity in a device with an advanced Web browser to enliven demand for their data plans.
Ultimately, exclusive proprietary and infrastructural technology became available to all. That stuff is amazing because it has been on the shelf for at least five years and it’s still good. This gist was this-do something creative every day for 30 days. Eric Schmidt, Google’s chief, said on various occasions that his company sees mobile phones as the next big growth opportunity.
I had recently gotten a couple of books from the library—one on paper tessellations and one on origami. Clearly, the objective was to capitalize on the New York Times’ fame as one of the world’s best news papers to generate revenues through its online presence.
Some Android phones are, despite Google’s best efforts, still vulnerable to the newly discovered RootSmart malware. The first — denoting Google Phone — turned out to be just a rumor. Fast in the heels of the iPhone came the Android. The Indian professor C.K. Prahalad, a management guru at the US-based University of Michigan, led the call for change in his 2004 book Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid.
And in keeping with the Google tradition, the Android services will be supported by Google-served ads. Now that I knew where it was, I could put the final finish on a project I started over six months ago. Some of the creations shown in the book are pretty amazing though.
