    The G1: Already improving my life.

    I spent a little too long in the "library" here at work reading the newspaper and the automatic light went off.

    So, being the quick thinking problem solver that I am, I opened up the Android market and downloaded a flashlight for my phone.

    Bam!

    Crisis averted!

    Now I'm looking through the store for what other apps will markedly improve my existence.

    No way. I don't play any silly games on my phone and your weirdo little slidey keyboard thing is teh sux0r. I can't even navigate that UI.

    It has a barcode reader, though. That's hot.

    Silly games are only silly if you're paying for them. And all the apps are free. And the slidey keyboard thing rocks my face. I also have access to all the ~!@#$%^&*()_+:"<>?:"` and whatnot right there.

    Yeah lots of good free ones exist for sure.

    Of course, some people pay for what they think is useful.

    I only paid for a couple that I really like.




    //Guess the Android is cool in that everything is free.

    But, is it a Mac? No.

    Bam!

    Is there an app that will let you generate a ballistics and trajectory chart based on your gun & cartridge combination? That would be kick ass.

    You could make one

    There's an app that allows you to change your phone settings based on location (leave work, send work calls directly to voice mail, phone goes silent at the movies, etc.). And another cool one where you can mark places of interest and when you are in the area it will remind you (I believe it'll also check it against your schedule if you have that programmed in to the Google calendar).

    All kinds of stuff, but no bike stuff yet. I know some people don't like open source platforms, but I really think that the potential of it is pretty rad.
