One of the most depressing articles I have ever written. But the fight goes on! #boycottapple  - Please reshare.

If you are in the bay area, come by our Android friendly meeting this Sunday   - http://www.berkeleylug.com/?page_id=67 - lots of Android talk, developer demos etc...

For those disappointed in the drop in local search functionality on the Galaxy Nexus to work around Apples patents: Don't forget that on a real OS like Android, 3rd party apps can bring this back in just a few taps in the play store.

Let's watch Apple try to sue 100s of individual app developers. #boycottapple

So, Google has a work-around for the Galaxy Nexus ban that will remove local search results from the search bar. While it is totally insane that they have to do this (Apple's unified search patent is clearly invalid as it is predated by things like Google Desktop), the good news is that this is functionality that can be re-enabled (if you actually use it) in about 5 seconds through a third party app. Unlike the idiot OS, aka "i"OS, Android OS actually uses real fileystems that are organized in a straightforward way and are totally and trivially indexable. Android has intents for displaying contacts, music collections etc....

I can't wait for Apple to start suing every 3rd party search app developer. That will be fun to watch.... #boycottapple
