Both Oracle and Microsoft are suing to get Google to license their IP tech allegedly in Android, and working the smartphone OEMs to create pressure. Implications for Android growth?

Android's free nature is undoubtedly a big plus for OEMs selecting a platform on which to build. But it's also difficult to believe that OEMs could switch en masse to other platforms (e.g. WinPhone) given the developer adoption Android has achieved. Dev shops/teams just can't reasonably support too many platforms, and iOS and Android (plus HTML5) are already occupying a lot of the available "slots".

Amazon Appstore. This indie Android dev says to avoid it. Definitely agree that the need to allow clear communication between customers and dev is critical to building and marketing a quality product.

Interesting new article from Nielsen: be clear in your mobile app initial screens and avoid alienating existing subscribers.

Our three daughters all attend this school, which happens to be in our neighborhood. They're in the Spanish immersion strand, one of the three strands at Monroe (the other two being Chinese bilingual and General Education). Hardworking teachers and staff and involved parents make this a wonderful school community. Currently the school facilities are undergoing renovations, to be completed by the start of school year 2015-16. For this year (2013-14) and next (2014-15), 2nd and 3rd graders are offsite at Mission Education Center--which hasn't been as big of an issue as one might expect.
