If I was an Android OEM, I would ensure that all the demo devices restrict homescreen modification. I mean just walk into any Best Buy and look at any Android tablet. The homescreens are a complete mess as a result of previous vistor modification. Most users especially new to Android won't even be able to find the Internet Browser shortcut if it has been deleted.

Apple's iPads on the other hand have their demo homescreen devices locked. That way they can control a person's first perception of the device.

This is how it's advertised:

But this is what you usually end up seeing:

I was just mentioned on an article on TechCrunch! Now I know all my new followers aren't spambots.
There are things out there all around us that we often miss because we're just not looking. This is perhaps most true in the tech world, where thousands of secrets are out there in the wild, hidden in...

Story
Tagline
Lover of everything mobile and passionate about UX design.
Introduction
Hi there, my name is Marvin. I enjoy tinkering around with new technologies and seeing how I can leverage them to solving new problems. Once I come across a solution, I have an obsession for making it simple to use. I like to break down complexity in academic problems to day to day nuisances — using a meticulous approach to crafting friendly solutions. 

I am an engineering graduate in Computer Engineering from Ryerson University in Toronto — specializing in software engineering. Specifically in software systems, I love developing native mobile applications. I am a software engineer that also has a strong background in interface design. This includes drawing wireframes, architecting intuitive user experiences (UX / UI) and using software design patterns to implement what I imagine. I am an artistic individual who has a interest in art and graphic design. Developing web and mobile applications allow me to marry my software engineering expertise with my artistic thirst of crafting great user experiences. I live at the intersection of art, design and technology.

During my free time, I like to spend time with my friends and family. I am also an avid movie-goer, an explorer, an EDM lover, a pianist and lastly, a bubble tea connoisseur.
Bragging rights
I've published an Android application on Google Play, 'hacked' the Facebook for iPad application and I love teaching board games.
