Apps of the Week
1) I would love to get a Android based PMP(Portable Media Player) . I use my iPod touch every day although I hate iTunes. I would definitely buy a Android based PMP. A lot of my friends carry the same opinion.
2) Guys, Droid Bionic discussion is getting really Old!! unless you are planning to embed a bionic phone inside your Body. What about the “”Samsung Galaxy S2″”. In most of the comparision videos it outshines the Bionic. Last week you again dedicated some more time on guess what Droid Bionic! Why not spend that time on other devices and or their accessories?
1) What does rooting a Android phone mean? Is it different than Unlocking? Also how (if at all) is it different than putting cyanogen mod or any other mod on a Android phone? Does CNET have a page dedicated for these things? Or any other pointer on the Web would be very helpful.
Love your show minus the Droid Bionic discussion :-)
I talked to a Logitech Revue support rep last Saturday and found out the software update will be available in 2 or 3 weeks. Any chance this is Ice Cream Sandwich?
