What I learned on the way home

Yesterday I flew home from NZ. I was in 3 countries, 3 states, 4 airplanes and 5 airports in more hours than I can count because of the varied time zones.

While in the air I got an email from Ask.com telling me that Bloglines is actually not going away – but just moving to a new host. While I like Bloglines more than Greader I see this as a really bad move. After all the hoopla about Bloglines going away people moved to other readers out there – the chances of them coming back after all this is probably not good. Are any of you going back?

The second thing I learned was by browsing the magazines in an airport store. Apparently Verizon and Apple have finally agreed on bringing the iPhone to Verizon Wireless. This is another one of those too little too late kind of things in my book. Those of us who didn’t want to switch to AT&T have fallen in love with Android – in fact I know many iPhone users who have switched to Android (and apparently new users are choosing Android over iPhone too) and are not regretting their decision. It will be interesting to see what happens with this new phone at Verizon – I certainly won’t be switching.

My Android Apps

Most of my readers know that I’m a huge Android fan and love my Android! One of the threads I always reply to is ‘what are your favorite android apps?’ Well today I find out that AppBrain (one of my favorite apps) allows me to share my list of Android apps right here!

Tomorrow I plan to head to the store to upgrade my phone from the HTC Eris (which I have loved) to the Droid X (which is much more of a powerhouse). If I change this list of apps much, I’ll let you know! If you share your list, feel free to share the link in the comments here so others can see what you have installed. And if you think I’m missing something essential, let me know!
