Android OS Evolution vs iPhone OS / iOS Evolution

+Tony Simons recently shared a post showing the "evolution" of the iOS user interface over the past 5 years. As you can see, not a whole lot as changed in terms of the user experience.

Let's take a look at Android. Here we have four Android phones running pure Android or devices running the "pure Google experience". That means they aren't running any carrier UI's or skins. We have the HTC Dream / G1, HTC Nexus One, Samsung Nexus S, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. All devices were roughly released one year after another. As you can clearly see from 2008 to 2011 the user interface and user experience has evolved and the hardware design has undergone drastic changes as well.

Maybe iOS got it right the first time and Android was playing catch up for a few years? This clearly is no longer the case.

Watch these videos and you decide.

This song is an old English tune called 'the cuckoo'. I am trying to identify the woman singing and this version of the song myself.

I do and have an album of many of those songs sung by Andreus Scholl. I find Deller can project
with much more ease though. Desmonde Dupre is great :)

TOP THIS ONE FOR A SPEEDING TICKET IN KELOWNA B.C

Two RCMP Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on Highway 97, just north of Kelowna.

One of the officers was using a hand-held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the city.

The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing.

The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the tree tops on Highway 97 revealed that the radar had in fact, locked on to an

RCAF CF-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise in the area.

Back at RCMP  Headquarters in Kelowna the RCMP Superintendant fired off a complaint to the Base Commander of the CF-18's in Cold Lake Alberta for shutting (actually frying it) down the Highway Patrol's Radar.

The reply came back in true Royal Canadian Air Force style:

"Thank you for your letter . . .

"You may be interested to know that the tactical computer on the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to,

your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down."

"Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment's location."

"Fortunately, the Air Force pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, and quickly responded to the

missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile

was launched to destroy the hostile radar position on the side of Highway 97. The bottom line is "your guys were lucky they didn't get their doors blown off!

"The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when swearing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech."

"Staff Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left molar. It appears the filling is loose.

Also, the snap is broken on his holster."

If you need any more details, please don't hesitate to call.

 
Per Ardua Ad Astra!

It was ok.. The mattress was uncomfortable to me and I found the walls/doors to be extremely thin. I was woken up several times by people's conversations that seemed to be in the room due to the poor soundproofing. The service was just ok.

Stayed a night while driving through. The man at the front desk was very pleasant and probably showed the most enthusiasm I've seen about a hotel. Must say, I slept really well, the bed / pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was alright. Only got 2/3 for facilities because my Wi-Fi signal was weak. Great stay regardless.

Really clean and up to date. A little more than the other hotels, but worth it. The bar has micro brews and the breakfast had warm selections as well. Nice stay.

Stayed a night and can't complain. The room was great, service was better and all around a good experience. Lots of places to eat in the area, though it does come with a continental breakfast.
