Playing with the G1

In the 2008 W3C Plennary Week, Adam from Google was very kind letting me play with his HTC G1. It was my first experience with Android. The UI was pretty simple and easy to use although it lacked some interesting features like offering the on-screen keyboard when in landscape orientation.

This post is pending since october 2008 and it is now the moment after just receiving both pics from Jonathan Jeon (ETRI-Korea). Thanks a lot, Jonathan and Adam!

M.I.T. OpenCourseWare

By chance, I discovered this site where the people from the MIT leave for free some material of courses of different disciplines.

I reached the site after googling and finding the initial course on Classical Mechanics by the Department of Physics. There are lots of video material (and no excuse if you are not experienced in the English language, because there is a transcription for the voice in them -so you can use an automated translator or your fave English-speaking friend-).

Why not start from the first lecture about units, dimensions, measurements and associated uncertainties, dimensional analysis, and scaling arguments.

If you want Computer Sciences, they are also there.

Aren't AMOLED foldable displays lovely?

And promising, in the field of mobility. Few to say, just watch the prototype in the CES in Las Vegas these last days.
