Eric Schmidt's "Switch" campaign.. it kind of reminds me of something... ;-)
Eric’s Guide: Converting to Android from iPhone

Many of my iPhone friends are converting to Android.  The latest high-end phones from Samsung (Galaxy S4), Motorola (Verizon Droid Ultra) and the Nexus 5 (for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface.  They are a great Christmas present to an iPhone user!

Here are the steps I recommend to make this switch.  Like the people who moved from PCs to Macs and never switched back, you will switch from iPhone to Android and never switch back as everything will be in the cloud, backed up, and there are so many choices for you.  80% of the world, in the latest surveys, agrees on Android.

1. Set up the Android phone
a) Power on, connect to WiFi, login with your personal Gmail account, and download in the Google Play Store all the applications you normally use (for example, Instagram).
b) Make sure the software on the Android phone is updated to the latest version (i.e. 4.3 or 4.4). You should get a notification if there are software updates.
c) If you are using AT&T, download the Visual Voicemail app from the Play Store.
d) You can add additional Gmail accounts now or later.

At this point, you should see all your Gmail, and be able to use any apps and they should work well.  Be sure to verify this.

2. Update your iPhone or iPad
a) Power on, connect to WiFi, make sure your Gmail is logged in, and upgrade all of the iPhone software to the latest iPhone software release (typically iOS 7+).
b) Check that you are using iCloud to back up contacts.  Go to iCloud (in Settings) and enable that for contacts (“on”).  If not using iCloud, go ahead and sign up for it.  (The latest Mavericks requires the use of iCloud for Mac users if you want to transfer contacts.)
c) For your personal Gmail account, in Settings/Mail, turn on sync for contacts.  In the latest iOS, this should sync your Gmail contacts and iPhone contacts.
d) In Settings/Messages, turn “off” iMessage, as that messenger is an iPhone-to-iPhone messenger and if its on your iPhone friends texts won’t make it to Android.  Your iPhone will still use SMS messaging to reach your friends if you use the iPhone after this change.
e) Make sure your iPhone is fully synced to the Mac iTunes.  Your photos and music should all be backed up on your Mac when this is done. Go ahead and verify that on the Mac and the iPhone.

At this point you should see all your Gmail, have your apps, and have your contacts in the Android phone.  If the contacts are not in the Android phone, manually download the contacts as follows on your Mac:
a) Go to, login with your Apple ID, and click on contacts
b) In the lower-left corner, click on the wheel, and “select all” the contacts and “export” the vCard into a vCard file (in Downloads).
c) In a browser, go to, click on the Mail button and select “Contacts”.  You should see a list of your Gmail contacts.  Import the vCard file into Gmail/contacts using the “Import contacts” command and it should have manually added your contacts.  Delete any duplicates or use the “More / Find & merge duplicates” function.

At this point you have your Gmail, apps and contacts on the new phone.  Also verify this.

3. On your Mac, connect your music to Google:
Download Google Music Manager onto the Mac, and run it.  Music Manager will upload your iTunes music to the cloud.  The standard version is free and handles most iTunes libraries.  You will need to sign up for Google Wallet and give your credit card information, but it’s free.  Be sure the music is going to your personal Gmail account above. See

With the above complete, you should have your Gmail, apps, contacts, and music all moved over.  Verify this on the Android phone :-)

4. Take the SIM out of the iPhone and insert it into Android.  You may need an adapter (from nano-SIM to micro-SIM), but then reboot the Android and you are all set !  For texting either use the Messenger app in earlier releases or the “Hangouts” app in Android 4.4.

Comments and additions welcome ! Eric

PS. Photos on your iPhone
If you have pictures on your iPhone, you will have to first copy them over to the Mac and then sync the iPhone with iTunes.  See   

It’s probably easiest to backup your iPhone photos to the Mac, but not copy the old photos to the Android phone.  New photos you take on the Android phone will automatically be backed up to your photos in the Gmail account (iAuto-Upload is normally enabled) so no action is required.  If the old photos are important, send them to Gmail and download into the Android phone or upload them to Google+.

PPS.  Some general advice

Be sure to use Chrome, not Safari; its safer and better in so many ways.  And it’s free.

Be sure to use two-factor authentication for your Gmail and Google accounts.  Makes it very hard for someone to break into your Gmail.  Also free.

The upcoming Mercurial 2.8 (expect it around November 1st) will have a bundled shelve extension.

Instead of working with patches, it commits the work in progress and then strips that commit along with its non-public ancestors. This is a much more robust implementation than the usual patch-based ones since it allows you to use rebase when unshelve the changes onto a different ancestor.

Shameless plug for my new book on installing and using #mercurial  . Many ebooks format are available as well as printed books. I'm not sure it would be needed by members of this group though :) as it is an introductory book. But I also tried to emphasize some good practices for companies such as collective code ownership, continuous integration, etc. and to show that some cool features or extensions exist for Mercurial: the mercurial-server extension, templating, filesets and revsets languages, Mq, convert, hg-git,... I hope you will like it. :-)
‘Instant +Mercurial Distributed SCM Essentials How-to’ by +Christophe Muller has been published. Learn how to:- - Install and configure Mercurial, the Mercurial-server extension, and TortoiseHg
- Place local files under version control to track their changes, display history, and revert changes
- Display detailed information about repositories, search through revisions, and customize printed command outputs
- Collaborate with others, diverge using clones or branches, merge and solve conflicts, and set up ad-hock or centralized servers
- Learn Agile practices such as collective ownership or continuous integration through simple SCM practices
- Set up a web interface to the repositories, find out at what revision a bug started, select which changes to commit, work with mutable changes (patches), and convert to and from Git or other VCS
- Set up hooks to mark a repository as deprecated (read-only), enforce a single-head policy, or to check a user's identity complies with a given policy
- Undo operations, ignore local files, keep local (or remote) changes forcibly during a merge, and display version control information in your prompt.

To celebrate GOP's shutdown debacle ;) an awesome tiny concert from @NPR Omar Sosa & Paolo Fresu. Thank You, NPR!

People can play in the same room or.. they can play together; then.. you get this!

Holger Czukay says it better than me: << This is what I have learned: In Can, 95 percent was listening to the others, and only 5 percent was saying something with your instrument. This is what Can really learned — playing by listening. >>

PS: Also to please my son ;-) (it's very good as well!): Thank You, NPR!

#music #joy #peace and poor GOPers, stop listening to millionaires only! 
The duo's quietly energetic performance hangs over the the NPR Music offices like a soft mist.
