AotA 20: Age of Connectivity


“Is this Bonsai Buddy on Android?”

On top of doing this awesome Android podcast once a week, we write too! Check out a couple of Eric’s latest articles. One on how to install Ice Cream Sandwich on your HP Touchpad and one on the Android Market trojan debacle.

My Asus Transformer Prime review is now published. I’m curious, do you have a Prime? Does it have stability problems? Email and let us know. You can see everything I’ve produced and written for groovyPost over here.

While you’re at it, check out Jeremy, Seth, and Joey on

Have you ever gotten a virus or malware on your Android device? I don’t believe any of us ever have, but then again, we are not the normal use case.

Check out the thread on XDA about the Transformer Prime stability problems. Gary Key has posted  updates every few days on where they are with the patch. We are all crossing our fingers hoping this patch will let us use our Primes like they were meant.

Do you prefer Google Current or My6sense? Eric and I are going to do a head to head write up about it. What’s your problem with Watchdog? Even on a quadcore processor you shouldn’t be using 70% of my Prime’s resources. Maybe it’s a glitch in the ICS.

Another huge thanks to Julie from Handmade of Awesome for making all of us such amazing handmade Android beanies. You are the best!

Who has sex on the first date more? Android users or iPh0ne users? The question is, how relevant is this?

Are you excited for the Droid Razr Maxx? I’m more excited about the battery it has than anything. Hey Samsung, why can’t we have a 3300 mAh battery for the Galaxy Nexus? Why do we the people always get taken advantage of by our carriers?

Here is the thread on XDA about the lack of a REAL car dock for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. They are selling a car dock, but it’s not the real one. It’s a holder, nothing more. Do you think the people at Verizon know that? NOPE. They will happily sell you the fake car dock for a ridiculous amount of money. Hey Samsung, is this real car dock vaporware? Because that’s what it’s starting to feel like. Just like the update that fixes the connectivity problem.

It’s time for app picks!
