The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  4. dude that QR code is for something else

  6. With Pulse’s announcement today, the news reader is category is clearly heating up. What is interesting to note are the different approaches:

    -Pulse has put a nice front end on a traditional RSS reader. While the user experience is good, the user has to manage sources which can lead to information overload and the discoverability of great content outside of your usual RSS feeds is low.

    -The other approach is my startup, YourVersion which focuses on topic based discovery (vs. source specific like RSS). With YourVersion we bring you the latest, relevant content tailored to your specific interests. There is no need to manage sources — YourVersion does all the heavy lifting to bring you the best of the web by your specific interest. You can also share your discoveries via email, Facebook and Twitter. In addition to the website we have free iPad, iPhone and Android apps to discover on-the-go.

    I’d like to invite you try YourVersion today. I’d like to hear what you think.

  7. @Sylvanus No thanks, I didn’t come to android to see iphoney UI, why can’t just “normal” apps keep the philosophy of android UI?

  8. @Sylvanus
    I have to agree with sid on this. I don’t like the look of that. Too “iPhone” and “Facebook” like.

  9. Hmm latest update has broken a couple of my feeds and doesn’t see to look as good as the old version..

  10. I still can’t find anything that beats FeedR. Which is fine by me.
