The first real Android phone is the Kogan Agora and it is about ready to launch in January. Instead of the G1 which locks you into T-Mobile the Agora is free to use on any carrier (with the proper set up of course.) I was hoping for more of this when Google announced that the Android OS was open source. I was very disappointed that the first major phone was locked down so tight. Let's hope this is just the first of many.
The new design for EventVue was just publicly released. Well, it's not that new. OrangeCoat delivered artwork and the templates in the summer months and almost forgot about the project until the redesign was announced yesterday. It still looks sharp to me, even after languishing on the shelf for months. I really dig the sliding effect applied individually to the logos in the footer -- even though that wasn't specifically part of the plan. Happy Thanksgiving America!
This is a little like when that grizzly bear finally ate Timothy Treadwell: Intellectually, he always knew it was coming. He had to. His very existence was built around that conclusion. But you still can't psychologically prepare for the bear who eats you alive, particularly if the bear wears cornrows.
