The best app on MS surface is Google App, kind of ironic, eh?

Dear MS Apple and others, just FYI
Google strategy is to hijack all platforms by providing best possible functional user experience. 

here is an example, Skydrive from MS offers more storage than all other cloud solutions, available on all platforms, even buying extra cost less than dropbox and Google G drive, but a big Skydrive App for the iPad is absolute garbage, it's so limiting that it won't even let you share pdf view via email!!!!

Apparently the poorest continent has > 50 billionaires, many of them are related to presidents.
There is something wrong with this picture. This wealth is literally stolen from the hungry!!!

OK Android friends!
This is the app to get for transit. This is a very early release, but will get better over time.
The iOS version works great.
RocketMan is a very popular transit App, it provide you with next bus realt...

Story
Tagline
Entrepreneur and Developer. Founder of TweepsMap and co-founder of RentCompass.
Introduction
Entrepreneur and Developer, founder of TweepsMap (Location based social media analytics service) and co-founder of Rent Compass (Canada's first and only rental listing service on mobile devices: iPhone, iPad and Google Android).
I am passionate about making the world a better place for everyone. I enjoy doing volunteer work with organizations that care about those with unheard voices - especially victims of wars.
I like new technologies, everything Google, Microsoft, Apple, web and mobile. I have been working on mobile devices since WinCE (almost a decade ago.. getting old!).
Right now I am having lots of fun building state of the art AJAX, Social and Android apps.
Love to travel, I have been to 20 countries on 5 continents and lived in 5. I am also facinated by languages, I speak more than 4 human languages, and too many computer ones to count :)

Great restaurant. Good food, very nice and friendly owner. Prices are a little on the high end, but their lunch menu is very reasonably priced.

Been here many times. A bit on the high end of pricing for the neighbourhood, but is well worth it. If you are looking for cheap crappy all you can eat look elsewhere, if you appreciate good food and experience this is one of the best places in the area.
