android apps proliferation

leave a comment »

start form nothing in 2004, android become promising mobile operating system in 2010. some analysis said that will overthrow its older brothers, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Apple next year. CNN said, this is android sensation. another phenomenon, the application proliferate on a very high rate growth. this is actually the open source nature, when the freedom to develop give the strength to beat the giant.

readwriteweb said:

According to recent statistics from AndroidLib.com, the Android Marketplace saw 9,331 new mobile applications added to its app store during the month of March, 2010. This number is even more phenomenal when you look at the Android Marketplace’s historical growth. In December of last year, for example, there were 3,807 new applications added to the Android app store. By January, 4,458 more were added. In February, 5,532 arrived. And now, 9,331. If this trend continues, we could possibly see a month this year where the number of new applications tops 5 digits. And with numbers like this, Android could soon give Apple a run for its money.

the growth is phenomenal. CNET said that the growth show the big potential of android as mobile operating system. but such a high rate proliferation of android apps not always bring good implication as CNN said:

For users, it means apps in the store could be buggy, might not work well depending on their handsets, and could deliver a frustrating experience.

so, be careful android. despite the growth is phenomenon, frustrating experience is also the next possibility.

open source

leave a comment »

it seems that there is exist rivalry between closed and open source software. on the street, the war is represented by the rivalry between microsoft and various linux distros. the question is, what is open source ?

open source initiative define the term as a method of software development that harness the power of peer review and transparency of the process. the pledge is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, and the most important thing is that it is low cost. such philosophy is contrasted with the philosophy of the closed-source software that locked-in for the sake of merely profit.

according to such philosophy, i just imagined that this is a big and noble movement that promises for the better world. better world that based on transparency and collaboration. what a movement, support it if you can.

what is ubuntu ?

leave a comment »

i only at glance exposed to several linux distros. a few years ago, I exposed to Mandrake and Red Hat by intentionally install it on my pc. later, I only hear about mandriva without curiosity to feel it on my desktop. now, suddenly everything on the campus named as ubuntu. generally, ubuntu is growing bigger.

like the others, ubuntu has its own distinctive identity. philosophically, the name is rooted from south africa philosophy of humanity toward others. on the development side, ubuntu releases its new version every 6 months. the distro has a strong commitment for education by releasing Edubuntu and Kubuntu that that intended to support education. but the real question is, what actually makes ubuntu specific ?

do we need ipad?

leave a comment »

i just wonder, why people never underestimate apple’s works? a months ago, ipad launched. actually, such gadget was an odd gadget. we have to make a lot of personal adjustment to stick on the gadget. why? because ipad is flat and doesn’t have any keyboard. it just like an iphone with a big touchscreen that intended to replace a netbook or other personal computing gadget. Grossman said it is somewhere between iphone and netbook.

the question is, do we need ipad ? it is now consumption age and the answer to the question is, yes. now we need such gadget that simplify the consumption. we only touch the screen and the world com to you in a flat gadget. actually, ipad doesn’t facilitate creation. so, are you ready for the next stage of consumption ? just take ipad to simplify it.
