Why Googles Nexus One failed? – Android – Stack Exchange

Here are my thoughts. Thanks to a friend of mine.

  1. To me, I think Google will launch their new phones when they want to demonstrate a Google “ideal” phone and to boost the cell-phone corporations in updating the phones’ hardware.
  2. If Google put all-forces in making phones, they will become competitors with other phone corporations which Google prefer to work with as phone-hardware partners! Google doesn’t need to be another phone corporation – their goal is below.
  3. Microsoft has been owning Operating System on PC. Google vision is to become the owner of Mobile OS – this is an awesome vision of Google! I don’t know why Microsoft would leave that market!

How about you? What do you think?

A joyful hobby of mine: Create icon for my usb-drives

I love Vietnamese fruits and love to design graphic. These two are combined into a hobby of mine which I spend some times to play with it today: creating icons for my usb-drives. Here’s how my self-satisfied results.

The detailed techniques to do this is shared here on Wikihow. If you have a Diigo account, you can see my highlighted texts on how to do it short & meaningful as below screenshot.

If you have the same hobby like me, here are my fruit icon collection ^_^.

 

 

My suggestion for new features in Dropbox

  1. A Windows 7 look-alike search box which helps me easily find a Dropbox option
  2. Allow me to filter which sub folders of a Dropbox folder can be synced/not-synced
  3. Allow me to delete permanently all of the deleted files/folders – the ones that are hidden and at the moment, I have to delete them manually
  4. (To be updated)

SharedCopy Lets You Bookmark & Annotate Websites With Style

Although Diigo is more complete than regular social bookmarking sites and I truly like the toolbar, introducing it to my friends doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily be blown away by it. I know some of them don’t even use Delicious, or have any way to back up their bookmarks so they still keep them in long folders on their browsers. In other words, a full client like Diigo is just too much for them. For simpler annotating, I’ve found SharedCopy to be light and simple, particularly because all of its features are presented in no more than a bookmarklet.
