    Did the google telephone come to Verizon Wireless? Is it the HTC DROID ERIS and/or the MOTOROLA DROID? Are there numerous variations for the google phone? Is the google telephone diverse for every single cellphone network? How a lot is it? I heard that is was coming to Verizon Wireless in the spring but I am not sure. If you know anything, remember to answer. I genuinely want to know when the google cellphone is coming to Verizon Wireless and if it arrived out already.

If an employee has a great proprietary idea, is the notion his or Google’s? I will not feel confidentiality agreements and non-complete contracts are adequate to prevent this from happeing.

    Is it just me or when you go to http://www.google.com, the page is black?

    Or do you think Google has good intentions or a bit of both?

    Keep in mind, Google does not make much money in China and this kind of publicity will probably increase revenue better than regular Chinese annual revenues for the company.

    I keep reading in newspapers and online that a lot of Android handsets are getting hacked/hijacked. I have a HTC Wildfire which runs on Android, but I will be getting my new phone in a few months time, and I am wanting to get possibly the Sony Xperia S.
    But that runs on Android. But are they safe?

    Currently I have an app which works on Android 1.6 and above. I’d rather not have to rewrite a separate application for Honeycomb and I can’t find much help anywhere. Is there an easy way for me to adapt it to work on Android 3.0+ with a proper tablet interface rather than just magnifying my Android-phone interface. Thanks!
