We’ve talked about POSSIBLY changing the platform and utilizing one of the popular podcast sites to incorporate a live chat room and call-ins. Would you like to see this? Any recommendations? I guess the first idea would be to actually make the podcast REGULAR… so easy to fall out of the habit. Appreciate all the E-Mails from listeners and fans encouraging us to continue – there is more where this came from!

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. they’re just testing the waters with the nexus one. next one will be vigorously promoted.
    with buzz, if you were to buzz something from your pc, will it show up on google maps at all? i’m thinking not since that would crowd the map way too much.

  2. 1st week sales…

    Nexus One : 20,000
    Droid : 250,000
    myTouch : 60,000
    iPhone 3GS : 1.6 million (launched in 8 countries)

    Original iPhone sold about 270,000 units in its 1st month.

  3. The reason why Google is going to experiment with the 1Gbit fibre network is because, like the navigation system in Android, they want to force rivals to be better.

    Forcing AT&T, Comcast etc to be better means faster internet access for everyone, which means Google makes more money because you’re likely to spend more time on-line.

  4. Why can’t I find you on “Listen” on my Nexus One?

  8. The tips for Google Buzz were great.

    The iPhone sales for 2007 averaged around 2,000 per day for the first 200 days. Ars Technica covered the numbers (http://bit.ly/9r06C2). So 80,000 Nexus One sales in the first month doesn’t really compare.

    On the other hand, the Nexus One doesn’t have any advertising.

    I read somewhere that the N1 is really like a concept car — showing proof of concept for what a great phone can be like with Android. A friend of mine from the car industry said that often car companies will create a very limited release, high-end car that they know will never really sell — but cars like that create a halo effect for the brand, and tend to lead that company’s line for all cars for years.
