Ep. 39: Trojans and tablets Video Transcript
Android takes the lead. Google fixes fragmentation. And how to -- Google music -- All that more in this week's edition of Internet tablets weekly for merged hands when eleven I'm just -- -- -- Antuan Goodwin and as a code created the going to need. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There would be a disaster -- Oracle and can't be there. Advocate. Calm. Cool well let's. -- reason held a statement useless. Integrated its -- -- week. Yeah -- Hardin -- in the chat -- is actually clamoring for these folks. For statistics to return though few -- the money on OK this one eight knows less useless then well it's -- site useful but it's meaningful. About that again. The useless but meaningful -- -- the week is Android leaps beyond rim to take the top spot in the US market. And let's tell you what that means. I'm so the most popular. Mobile platform for Smartphones most popular Smartphone OS. In a study by -- -- for the last three months. Was Android. With a total of 31 point 2% of the market. Around with their closest competitor rim -- thirty point 4%. Men are good friends Apple at 24 point 7%. Point 8% between. Here between Google and -- as the look close race. And delisting thing is the velocity hearing what changes though there is nothing which you said. The there has had its order though yeah well that's our fifth place gains -- apparently -- even in the -- are hot. Yes so go ahead -- did it the it that Google made a jump between October 2010. And January 2011 of seven point seven point. -- -- Came down -- point four. Everyone else is making changes of around between between zero and 2% -- at that point one yet -- that mean they've. They've got a huge chunk of the market. But it's not changing much -- and greatest kind of growing at a much more rapid pace and rim. Falling at a much more rapid pace than than Apple Microsoft and Paul -- combined because. Seems that's happening here so a Smartphone use has a whole rose 8%. So it seems like. Google just his gratitude of all new users of and -- maybe converting users you defenseman looking at this rate but they're diverting users. And -- -- speed things that Smartphones grew -- -- percent but it Vietnam of this. Everyone is down except for our inaugurated. But that's weird little confused -- -- that style -- -- quality service if it is to to dazzle you with numbers and trickery. So leading the actual manufactures was Samsung. And it I think this is not just. -- all Smartphones her -- phones are all Smartphones but it. In any house Merck Samsung led with 24 point 9% of the US market. And following up LG with twenty point 8% and Motorola the paltry six point five person. That's sixteen point sixteen point five fulfill -- who. The and they just are -- that if -- It's -- one point 2% decline. As well it is -- You know its press select each TC isn't on here. Time. Yet that if kind of interesting considering. That there of one of the two brands that which it one of the three -- that -- -- -- -- -- first. When I think about injury and said that -- interest of anonymity the original Android handset. The G1. Yes yes they did -- great men and there were also behind the Nexus One. And then additionally now behind the -- -- if both the earlier Kyle bunch of the end of the big meet her hand -- this the -- Via -- Google which -- never get here. -- -- -- -- -- That said -- for all. Non Smartphones as well. Which is why does make sense test as we'd just pretend like -- Smartphone market doesn't exist for them as part. The -- I mean. Yeah -- they do there actually if the liquidity or that -- malicious statement I mean that us today the pool from which that that in a professor. Having an infinite. I mean it's as as -- an open mind about my own thing going but it. As quickly as integrated growing. Funding that could give them new users pause. -- the news of malicious app that's been floating around the Internet in the last week -- -- And from -- -- -- -- thing. It'll do and and and -- last week we talked about. The rumors that. Google and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- From the -- market this -- we've got news that Google that the coming in and confirming. That they have whole 58. Melissa staff that they've identified airmen. As of Tuesday. They were Dell Latitude 26000. Devices and the Google's -- in the emailed people who were affected Linden noted there's a reason. At the captain disappeared for your phone. And basically saying that -- -- the of the information that was. Access by these apps -- -- you know. -- -- I basically said that the only information the F gatlin is information identifying the versions and buried. That the current phone units of the orders so they say they say that's what they've confirmed. At least until the -- that the territory -- In the end -- youth group than in the -- credit card number. Into the Internet but I mean it is still funding to. The be concerned about I mean if -- -- 23000. Devices that. Pretty big -- 260000. The -- that note and last -- -- number was reported as 50000 so. It is definitely changed since the rate and I mean I -- in last week it was the in the number of them with any network it almost sixty. We shouldn't really be worried because. There is a great. App out called. What Google. Android market security tool that'll clean this up for you. Hey dad did have you downloaded that -- might have overlooked benefit -- if they may be in the process of cleaning up my phone now. Lily -- you should. Actually -- -- this Apple sort of very closely related here called as they it is that the Android market security tool. That I -- was released on some of some third party. Cheneys. Android market place. Not the official 101. That claim to be a tool to sort of clean up these malicious apps and I think was even based on the actual removal tool. But it actually was -- that did other crazy things -- with didn't actually do com. I think it had. Tim looks by. Says the one that could send SMS says I I believe ray are two random people potentially costing you money here who knows what. No maybe that the people who created this had a -- service that you had paper -- Sony whatever steering I mean even if it's -- When you picture of a pink bunny -- the fact that there. And in the week. You know all of you know who -- who plan to do about com. Malicious after the market and in Google basically. Putting out an -- That will help people. To combat this. And then having. That turned on its head and having a true -- version of the muted but. The truth Altima Trojan hear it it coming. And the -- of security and basically. Doing the exact opposite of what people expected to do it reminds me of the spamming technique where you just send -- -- two million people and you. Tell which he notices work by who actually -- -- subscribe button. Oh yeah -- This is kind of same thing yet and click announce this crap you have -- -- subscribe. Fil a me what the -- Google. An eighth -- -- tool actually isn't it from what I understand it. Not an actual download from the market -- -- they get pushed year -- automatically. These didn't. Actually even be looking for this. Anyway -- Yet -- ghoul would install it presumably without -- even knowing. Clean up your stuff and potentially even delete after that so. At anywhere -- don't do this. So what I'm wondering is if the store was more restrictive. -- -- still have these issues for example. If it was Amazon's App Store which we've talked about several times and how they will actually look at all apps. Maybe these problems wouldn't -- -- alleviated. 01 of the issue that that came up with Amazon's market was last week after the in the opposite of that everyone's a little concerned. When it leaked that the apps in the Amazon. Market would come with a DRM. That would be that -- if the rumors were. You'd have to have the injury market installed on your phone and that it would -- to the -- would have to be in Constant Contact with. Amazon's DRM servers in order to work. These -- the rumors. Now we're floating around and I inside you know users and in the gift immediately your display in collided after being Constant Contact at this week too restrictive DRM what -- -- -- signal. And then that run my app. This week there is actually a little bit more confirmation. -- -- like Howell the DRM in the Amazon App Store will work. Once that comes on line. To clear things up essentially what's gonna happen is. You download to wrap. And the first time you run the app -- actually paying. The Amazon App Store servers and download. Essentially a token or. Is it -- is basically the localized authorization. And it will store that locally on the device. Two basically that Vietnam that it's okay to -- now that. Presumably it at certain points. You know that this token ought to be like you know. If refresh store -- -- -- and indicated this probably happened automatically. But it does seem like it's gonna be as restrictive. Or -- there's data intensive as if some people. Were concerned as if we initially -- it was going to be. Damn that sounds like it could definitely good development here. You know definitely overall gives you. You know what I I was just talking about and with this view of some of how low the Amazon App Store is viewing. You know the world of Mandarin and there are trying to move towards. Canada Apple methodology more of -- the Google methodology. And -- -- vision of how that's gonna -- does that connect create more opportunities because people who haven't put out apps on the Android platform. Because -- scarier. You know concerns about. The our grammar and other issues rules -- like okay now here's a very sort of business friendly place -- -- -- -- You know what -- app -- -- or is this actually. No it's a guess -- -- that problem. -- -- -- -- As far -- like you know -- larger developers. You know you're -- PDAs. Nearly -- -- in the in the market of games and whatnot. You know that that's gonna it's gonna be very. It's gonna help them come and help them to to know that you know they'll be able to track -- their investment in the market and mean get a return on it. Without having to worry about you know people just you know strip in there -- -- And you know put them on servers and carrying them. And I think -- the -- and on the consumer end it'll be pretty. Pretty transparent I mean things like that that token authentication to be from the and happen automatically -- in the background. Without you. You know having to do anything with -- and I mean it's not really anything new because there are actually are ready apps in the market. Or actually even third party -- -- of the market. That do something similar the example that I ran into all the time is the slight data. And basically. In order to download their app. You have to. After installing. -- to log -- to the data. And basically had -- authenticate to keep you from you know moving. Is do you -- -- PK on if the card -- President from doing anything they don't going to do yet. And so we have -- thirty doing that -- grid on their own this review will provide -- a platform to do with that happened so -- reinvent the Wii -- time exactly. And and essentially you know for the users -- to be like a one time authentication. -- somebody like mean you're installing a new rom every week. Missed its meaning it can work -- sell the decades very well you liked this. All right so we're talking about. -- -- market and policy fragmentation. -- -- fragmentation in the and great space with multiple markets now in addition to multiple skins. So new fragmentation problems on one end. Solutions for pregnant patients on the other hand coming from Google directly. Via their new fragmentation. The library. And so this excited about this and I'll be -- -- would expect it. So alive -- -- -- when you tell me what it says. My understanding. So Google has put up as fragmentation -- fragment library. That is really -- to help developers. Solve issues. -- fragmentation standard world and this seems to -- more based on hardware fragmentation and sort of OS. Customization. The manufacturers have done so. -- -- build one -- port tablets as well as for phones. This will help you deal with different screen sizes. And this fragment library is actually built in the honeycomb. But you can build the fragment library itself into apps that are. Going to be released for Android one point six and later not. And it comes Pacific. So it's not entirely clear to me what this -- the development kit does. Of -- and help you deal with fragment that sort of hardware. You being the developer community who don't enter end user. Yet it ultimately benefits -- user of course when you do it he wouldn't use this as an end user Brett. He would use the fruits of though labor the developers will mean it does solve the problem. Or health. Addressed the issue. That was immediately when -- and indeed the human Nvidia came over their tegra zone of -- -- they're gonna be apps that are eventually release that. Come with system requirements and you can only run this to happen if you have. This festering larger or you can only run this -- if you. And -- processor that you know. It's from this manufacturer it kind of is a proactive. That for -- from Google's release -- -- that know how. -- if gonna help. It's still in the area if -- in forests that I can tell. But certainly guys that a tiny step in the right direction. I think so I applaud the effort. That -- I don't know about the implementation yet. So I have no good segue here but something else that we no school has been working on. Is is Google music sync service. They talked about it you know I guess where at the it's not a long time ago in in -- -- -- of those at the Google I O event in May. But since then we haven't really heard a whole lot about the -- music sync service. Until now. And we're -- we're not hearing about from Google now. We're inherited about it from users are people who sort of been hacking away at the honeycomb released over at the XTA. Developers forum where we get a -- -- the lynched in hacking news. -- if they discovered a version of Google music where the music player built in -- Android. With in the honeycomb released though it wasn't sort of like that actually. This somehow buried in their but it wasn't the one in school music player that he would use as a user of honeycomb. And estimates and -- this and found that it had a bunch of settings for. Streaming music and synching music. And so they actually set it up and gotta start syncing with Google music -- whatever that is it or wherever that is. And when user reports and after let it -- overnight they were able to to lead. The actual songs from their device but still then go back in and stream them from the mythical cloud. -- -- -- -- cloud of what went and you described this. And you can use the -- where's the music going -- on the Google's servers. Enthusiast into one user apparently says that -- music is going rights that are day. I mean I think this is a real Google's service and must of course that the Trojan -- -- entirely be possible. That there urges test scene and just haven't released yet so it's probably is. An associated with you your Google counted -- on some cool cloud server somewhere. -- -- I -- would like to be able to stream from my home server. Without even going through the trouble of going through with cloudy cloud. But I mean it's it's still interest thing today -- all the problem of our helps address the problem of a storage space on phones. It is anything you know -- a lot of users. Into the sixteen gigs -- that you get on most phones is a reasonable amount of space but then fill it up when music and these are recording videos and and your out of it. And it also. Helps with the you know the one of the big issues one of our area in a couple of -- kind of top I'm -- -- injury can be fixed little -- that we've done. And even doing the show. You know music comes up is an issue. And handling of music also comes up of an issue and -- we've been asking for. Some sort of an iTunes analogue and -- easily get music on to our servers and ask you got her phones but maybe this service is. And the fact that service is still in development as the reason we haven't seen any thing program. He could be and make its enemies have leapfrogged iTunes and in of -- anyways here's though of course Apple's rumored to be working on the same thing. With their acquisition of the -- there. And yet anyway at company unit at -- companies. So it's -- -- actually reminds me a lot. The original MP3 dot com. Read it sort of stick to see any computer and -- -- many would have instant access to that music -- Of course now we don't have been through that comment Monsanto via -- law was the name of service and am I use them all the time. So you know we'll actually -- -- wait and see what actually is released here that. There ego says next story speaking of rooted and hacking and stuff like that is something that. Have been you know is pretty -- about very. The Motorola -- go ahead and take that's when you to -- been evangelizing this whole concept while I've been meta group whose. -- the coolest features about the other Motorola a tricks for G. Is the -- top. Sort of accessory that you can purchase for it that being at the screen. And a keyboard that you can now plug here phone into the back of and it'll they essentially bring up a web top interface that more of -- -- appropriate for larger screen and keyboard. Rather the web -- where profit thing and that sort of thing. But essentially. Hackers have figured out a way to. Kind of take control. Of that web top interfaith and with the -- the roots and the -- software you can. Actually now all use the web top interface on any HDMI capable display. If you've got a Bluetooth keyboard laying around. It's basically what is it an update to the dot provider and dot service. And up portal at ABK's. That the Motorola H Rick La forge you'll actually use. When it's connected to a dock. So basically what they've done is and to begin over on India -- forums. They've. Modified there's a -- so that now you can output video -- anything. And type with any compatible Bluetooth keyboard for now you can save yourself 500 bucks. On that into -- laptop that if you want to and you know invest. Little under hundred or -- like on on. Multimedia dock which is like -- 180 -- exactly really need to get is HDMI cable -- keyboard actually based -- comes with -- phone email account for the that's. If -- like me I -- -- all the time. But he -- used to just -- Bluetooth keyboard. And you're good to go there though it and is -- neat little feature. For you matrix -- -- users and and since Motorola said that. They're gonna be role in this. -- -- -- -- It's conceivable that unless Motorola closes this backdoor that humans have built in those -- -- that. -- this'll be something that's -- -- -- more than one phone in the future. -- have to wonder if this is possible on sort of non Motorola phones as well. But what does it occurs to me is dead in the in honeycomb they now support the -- -- Over Bluetooth -- they added that so if you have a phone. And no no funds are running and consulates talked about ice cream sandwich and it so once phones are running that it I have liked. You know there's a bunch of phones with HDMI out already you don't even need any of that may just use Bluetooth with sort of stock Android and use HDMI out on my you know whatever Droid Dexter Droid -- -- On a couple of almost that the hasty in my -- those phones have HDMI connections that. I've had. Inability put hands on that HDMI connection usually only works for video content. That -- -- -- Larry medium that'll just mere display of the stew Mac and it analyst I've missed a couple of them. Let you know -- again. Now there aren't hacked or a lot of the phone that will allow you to buy a path that. And it depends on your phone depends on. You know the hacking community behind it and -- of people. Like the people and -- the eight being able to put the effort and in doing that. -- well cool concept either way it definitely it was at all that extra hurt our. Around well when we come back we will and that's. -- -- -- -- -- Across the -- making -- -- welcome back to the the Wi-Fi zoom. Is here almost sort of kind of we think it's -- route it in route route. It's of the Wi-Fi zoom -- there is they. Some screen shots of some matters like that from Sam's Club. That pad the -- only assume listed. At a price of 539. Which is. Only slightly more expensive for -- for 99 Wi-Fi only. -- and iPad two. Well iPad two now original iPad is certainly cheaper. So who who -- we think they like peppers he had one. News no. Now I mean am -- getting when it is them will it's -- good price I mean it's only and only thirty bucks more. It's easier to argue. You know -- -- of the does him being. A premium or that -- -- -- -- that justification in the market entry tablet. I think it's still too expensive. -- -- and I want to be less a much especially how much less less than the use want to be left -- -- yet had a dude that's one thing in total about 4398430. And or -- Authoritative account topic and street talk especially if it's running Android two -- honeycomb. The -- has apparently in the same map that it says that it's 800. Tablet is running Android 2.0 honeycomb you and it. That's going to be type. A typo or is this -- at eight. Might be I mean it can be either -- it -- -- it I think it's likely that it but -- have. So it sounds like a reasonable press. It sounds like were we both think this is definitely unbelievable price we don't have any specific data as to when we'll start selling at Sam's. But we do know that the -- -- -- Is set to debut in Europe -- in the second quarter. Which is pretty soon -- and this month yet. In the reason I think -- a typo and. And and not -- inventing anyone who's been enough of the -- to make a week. Would probably have the attention to -- -- at least but the rate version number. I and less that's what they thought you were gonna thanked him that's -- quick to point out that you would think that though I think -- I -- It's what they want to think they've gotten. I think Althea. And get a pretty -- -- -- morning one -- -- -- -- So. We've been talking a lot about hack team. And all that report that the XT eight form. Hasn't been doing this one isn't specifically about that but it is about hacking your resume. Com. So you know if you wanna hear you zoom upgraded to four GF sent into Verizon. Quarters are the Motorola. And that Motorola also has come -- and said hey if you have rooted your phone carrier tablet in this case we will still turn -- credit for -- -- -- B grade if you could sort of re. Stick the stock image on -- but if not we'll do our best to Tryon. Upgrade that -- you. We don't have to present problems. Yet it is trying to avoid those Americans with probably gonna end up happening is there's going to be some sort of an assembly line. You know -- ordered you know just standardize that repressive they have where. They're going to be opening up there we pop and antennas they're gonna -- -- and put it back and -- and now and I'm gonna wanna spend a lot of time playing around with -- -- of weird settings. And -- you've got there. And it's likely that and flashing the new firmware. And -- take advantage of the four G antenna -- you're a loser route anyway. And just because I mean even if you if you catch -- OT -- On routes without paying attention it'll. Italy could be pretty easily get rid of -- read at that that away and animals and maybe this is just a PR thing yes just more of there this you know they couldn't avoid. Upgrading it. I think if there's -- -- of the you know -- lip service. Where you know earlier there it's like we're not gonna be up there and we're not gonna be -- of creature device. If you're rooted -- And in every way clamored you know they know it was -- -- -- you know -- -- not being friendly to tit for monitors and it's just something that they you know. They're changing their process any. It's that it is probably not even. Make any sort of weight behind the scenes display now -- just we'll just say that make it than that and. Well they did it it is the response to let it was an overreaction -- They kind of -- bombing me out there who are good about Motorola's like erratic and by zoom while Leo that you should not buy a Zune -- not -- -- as -- now I'm gonna buy it achieve its applicant go back at I have a question about -- -- or Arctic iron. Go back do you think anybody's -- -- -- -- -- -- Yes. I I mean. I would be surprised -- And no I mean I thought that they should just say hey we're not we -- -- outback. But that's how they could do kind of advance replacement is pages and -- tablet. And you send yours back and who cares was wrong right there was a -- if there was if I would meet the president of the data white involved. And the upgrade process I think there definitely is him and even -- right back and we don't hear you -- your -- back. Yeah I mean and lot of stuff. -- -- -- -- Your -- your settings are automatically backed up by injury on Google servers anyway. -- -- -- amount email music text messages -- your -- Gary tuchman is -- I -- -- I don't think they are compliant and infinitely. And so. So anyway -- -- or backwards saying side words to the to achieve that tablet that is going to be better Baptist better than the zoom. Better than the iPad to better than life itself that's -- that Toshiba had known for -- is wanna have been people. Rate the -- and -- -- -- -- -- Yasser and -- and -- actually means one upmanship exactly translated. To the general manager this kind of weird -- -- the general manager of Toshiba Australia. And I'm. Has been high beam their honey -- through -- tablet emitted is superior tonight at two. Quote we are confident that we can match Apple pricing for their new iPad -- -- delivering a device that is richer. In features. Yahoo! so what are we talking about here in terms and it features city then goes on to say that well it's gonna be a little heavier. But it does have a lot of features that attitude doesn't. -- is -- one of them. So that one of the features -- -- Great to exactly it's a much better paper weight than the iPad two complete -- through and -- defend. Which you want. You're ten inch screen ten inch screen so -- honestly better. Dual core Nvidia tegra two processor. And -- better built in HDMI out. -- net slightly better than -- and -- cable. Two megapixel front facing camera aren't that's better than that Vijay that I had at -- megapixel rear camera. Not name -- -- they never and a -- excellent. They didn't make people who are overrated yet. And let's see as a USB and mini USB ports. So and the -- iPad doesn't really have that removal battery. That's actually something. SD card slot if -- enabled -- launched that'll be exciting. And and packing a few more hardware integrations. That's where the magic in happen right now and you're -- Packing a few more hardware integration capabilities so far I mean nothing listed there really gonna -- -- Memory forty. Or -- Seven point one surround sound. To me it's gonna while. The bars. Do we have it we've already kind of late in the bargain at Wii Fit pretty high because. Of it and no more than ignore fewer than in three. As CNET editors and personalities that last week that it don't matter any rate -- about the experience but would be you can bring in. Thing that we've got five megapixel camera and -- Dan. You know four point nine megapixel cameras mechanism. And is that that -- in the dollars then people pocket that well what this is gonna have actually is the -- map all programs. Hologram yet and if you're gonna they're gonna be the ones really moved me back importantly be -- what you -- -- it's going to be. RTD -- -- though project. The plan like monochromatic. And -- static -- -- the little interlaced. We have you on you about Leo exactly. That is can it play -- it that's going to be the ringtone. Don't believe -- that believe I'm actually. You don't carry distracted by the author of this. He's moving on -- the idiots think they -- gonna announce that -- a look at -- make it here but. -- Is there -- -- And ones being a pig right now and we'll put. It from government stacked on profile. How -- -- in my sent. It does go on their tech net. -- what I'm wondering is he -- is coming out. Mike Martz when he first. Are they -- announce that traveled there. Horror -- in a later. I don't know I don't know. What we do you know. Will be at CT IA comes from a sprint announcement. And this week. And basically sprint -- that they're gonna have -- -- the theft forgy. The evo 3-D and the evo view tablet at CTI -- Well let's let's just to clarify it did it -- this past the expectation of a -- and have they are gonna have. They've booked a two and half hour slot say -- but to -- -- -- press conference that can be snappy and and that -- I guess is what our best Gaspar in the days and gadget that's. What's gonna be announced. Com. You know would be pretty -- -- I think -- -- originally was gonna. Throughout with the Nexus One more sprint but they never actually ended up doing it so maybe this is when they're finally -- -- -- -- -- the Eva three the commissioner we don't care about pretty recount. Until a -- broadcasting -- treaty. Then you'll start in about present it will be the most important development and has two world in the next benefit of Android -- weekly -- treaty. Home end to end the evo view tablet. Which. We don't know anything about that you know HTC. Evo or -- good. Manufacturers and brands them. I don't know its tune in. I don't have much more is there -- Matthew I'm excited. Your dynamic. -- excellent let me sprint actually been one of -- carriers that's been. Behind -- very pretty early on -- and it seems like you know that -- theme. That would be evo four G has been president -- -- And the brand. The wouldn't be spread -- again -- -- command them -- here. Though. Cool. That's a good previews give us thereabouts and apathy the day yes the Yankee keep -- -- -- -- to our coverage as her and -- editors down there. -- you'll hear the news over here at CNET and me LB of their. Well earlier as well for -- -- suitable -- engineers and and me -- I don't know -- happen -- you'll need -- as a regular coverage other. I don't know if that's the stay -- them. As speaking of previews. Google has rolled out instant previews -- and great. You know for when you do searches. They don't actually have any kind of instant preview but sprints doing that the do you have previews of whatever web site do you mean -- searching for. For the video nudist -- are basically as soon as you start typing into the third spot if starts populated in the third little. Which is the school and that it actually really really quick very easy to use. But actually a function and in the Chrome operating element in the browser where you can actually enable that in the the -- the bar rate which sit in started -- me in trouble. How can you start typing something it just pulled the first by -- -- history. -- you want people defeated you've been. Yet be careful about -- and there are careful about that are to school but -- they've taken this the next app where you can actually preview what the state. Actually looks like ray so they have a little magnifying glass then soon after you've done the does it simply units instant. Like -- complete what he called the first part of that and it's not a complete a complete. -- little magnifying glass and then com. It jumps in at least for handwriting into suit this -- almost gallery view of the different search results. And actually looks real pretty at least if you're searching for adequate snake anyway. It -- article I've again. If because my phone is -- -- I wondered like you know and I have an accident -- play with just yet but it you know how much more bandwidth and processing is -- gonna take. When I really just want to know who played in this movie. In a separate well you don't have data that are spent -- rated affiliates a button an -- -- depressed or take on the side doing that I think options. You know ideally it's kinda cool and more features are always better and I mean are they already have these. The -- of like -- spent the updated data already exist on their servers you can get appearances. Ministers 300 analysts we can -- -- see there's little. Things that there are so if they take this back coming and that a little preview button. And I'm taken since into the gallery view. See everything you'd want her to do it. Who in my world if they go every first -- -- then we heard that. They. Pretty cool and pretty snappy at least on my HTC incredible. Yeah and vertical. That that -- news that is it looked gas email. One email coming in from Ryan from with -- -- India Ireland. Yes I -- -- did Nadler must eateries and you can Brian watches our show every week thank you Ryan. If you would like them advice on good and very home screen replacement -- -- was looking at a way to cut the -- customize -- phone the way he likes it. -- Sprint's sprint. Strengths. Zero the effort is he not speak today apologize. He hit the sprint HTC evo four G. What -- suggest. Well the evidence suggests as far as -- A lot on what to trying to get out of it.
