AotA 25: Minimalist Fantasy


“How many cores do you need for it to be everything?”

Thanks for checking out episode 25 of Attack of the Androids. This is a jam packed episode filled to the brim with great discussions about Android, security, and of course the short order random sidetracking that seems to have become our signature move. Guess what else? Our friend Sherwyn Williams from Infolookup came back to join in the fun, and he brought this cool survey we would love the AotA fan base to take. It’s about device security, and by honestly filling this survey out, you are doing your part to save lives…  Well kinda. 😉

Keep reading after the break for links and our app picks.

How fast can we get our mobile internet? Who’s ready for the Terahertz? Now that’s oscillation. Motion, movement. LIFE!

Next up we talk about the Android Market… I mean Google Play, and take a few shots at the iPad HD… I mean the new iPad. Speaking of Google Play, have you seen the $0.25 movie rentals and even better, the $.49 games? Better get there soon, we don’t think it will last much longer.

Good news for Android app developers, the 50 MB barrier will soon be a thing of the past.

Have you seen this cool Lego Galaxy Nexus dock?

Is your Android device infected with malware? Would you even know?

Is the HTC One X still ugly? I think it’s kind of growing on me.

  • So I love the comment by Jeremy about being about to go minimal on the Electronic side of things and getting everything you need from the iPad… I have to say — With my Zagg Keyboard and my iPad I would have to agree with Jeremy only I would go so far as to say the iPad is almost…… 

    The iPad could be my only device in the house IF I didn’t do so much photography. I use the iPad for EVERYTHING and with my keyboard on it wow, I actually don’t use anything else (I’m typing on it right now actually).

    Even my 3 kids — they don’t use the XBOX or the WII any longer although I have a complete separate room in the house for them. All they want (and fight over) is our iPad.

    Just give it another year or two and I can only imagine how the iPad and other tablets will impact the PC market.

  • I agree, that was a great conversation.
