Anyone who asks me about an Android device I often tell them it's a great ... Android Smartphones forum
I think its all heading in a good direction. These devices, if used correctly, actually save us money in the long run. Personally, I was never one to search the Sunday papers for the best deal, but the idea that my phone could do it for me more efficiently, I say yes. Instead of burning gas getting lost looking for an address, my Droid lets me know exactly where it is. That's a win to me and much better than unfolding a huge map while on the move. Just to feel more in touch with being human. LOL. I'm very secure with myself!
When I really look at what Google has accomplished with Android, in an IPhone dominated market in a little over a year, its not hard to see it will move ahead of the rest. I predict the criticism for having many different devices will turn to praise when its realized that there's an Android device for everyone. From expensive to cheap. I think that's where the ads will come in the most. We'll give you a nice Android device for free, just let us run our ads. Not me, but a lot of people would go for that. Its already being done within some free apps.
Variety and choice. Not a bad situation for me.
You can't learn anything if you're talking!
if you've just realized how Google works, then you're already too deep into it. everyone knows how they work and everyone expects Android to work the way Google works because.. well.. it's Google. i don't really understand what you mean by "using our smartphones smarter". it's all made to integrate into our lives and make it easier for us to do everything. if the big brother thing is what you're worried about.. like i said, it's too late.

In this ultra connected world we have now, just about everything we do is traceable. While most of it can be beneficial and useful, it can be scary to think of it in the wrong hands. It is smart to step back once in a while and look at the permissions we give and just how much we leave a trail that can be used against us.
After I read this I thought of a wife using her husband's phone as they ride in the car together and getting a pop-up as they passed a strip club advertising the days happy hour special.....and her glaring at him and saying so now I know where you've been when you call to say you will be "working" late

Things have been changing and it's important to stay on top
off some of the potential hazards.
Like most good things they can also be used in bad ways
awareness is important.
This is what helped spark my original post. Link for now it seems I may be a little ahead in my thoughts or idea.
I still believe I'm not too far off about the near future of how great some of the devices will work and the O.S's ability. So lets use this thread as one to re-visit next year and see just how close I was in making a prediction
