Android Market officially passes the 100K apps Mark (tech, news, update, report, review, Auckland, "Abby Technology Limited")

The Android market has just joined the App Store in the prestigious 100K apps club. The news was confirmed by the Android Dev Team through their Twitter account this today so it's official this time.
 
Naturally you can't access all those apps on a single device due to carious restrictions concerning screen resolution, Android version and regional availability, but there will always be enough for you to choose from. And the numbers will only be going up from now on.
 
It took only three months for Android to go from 70 000 to 100 000 apps so that means that an average of 10 000 apps hit the shelves each month. And the share of the free ones among those is still hovering above the 60 percent mark, which is downright impressive. Even games like Angry Birds that come for a fee on other platforms (iOS and webOS) choose the free, add-supported way for their Android versions.
Still some would rightfully point that the Android Market has quite some way ahead to reach the Apple App store and its 300 000+ apps standard but at this point the differences gradually start to lose significance. We can't possibly imagine anyone being able to browse through 100 000 apps, let alone try each one of them.
 
As long as all the important stuff is there, most users won't care if there are 100K or a million apps. And the Google OS official repository has most things perfectly covered. Being a little light on 3D games is probably the only thing that renders it second best at this point.
 
Meanwhile, the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace hit 1000 apps. This might be 100 times less than what the Android Market could offer you but let's not forget that the first WP7-powered smartphones have just started shipping. So, thumbs up!Blog Flux Scramble - Email Encryption and JavaScript Protection Submit Blog Add to Technorati Favorites Add to Google Top Personal blogs Text-ads on your Blog with BidVertiser.





Nokia unleashes its short movie, shot exclusively on the Nokia N8 (tech, news, report, update, leaked, Auckland)


Nokia presents The Commuter, a funny short film, starring "Slumdog Millionaire" Dev Patel with a cameo by Pam Anderson. Beside the stellar cast, the other thing that's intriguing about the flick is the fact it's shot exclusively on the Nokia N8.

The Commuter is yet another proof of the Nokia N8 camcorder skills. Well, contrast could have been better in some scenes but still, you can hardly tell that the 720p HD movie was shot with a mobile phone.

Now, get the pop corn and dim the lights, will you?
ust don't expect you can grab a Nokia N8 and go shoot something like that. The team behind the movie has used some expensive pro-level accessories. We bet they've used at least a tripod with a fluid video head, a steadicam-type stabilizer adapted for cameraphone use and some specialized video lighting.

The 2010 Legatum Prosperity Index (living, standard, world, record, migration, ranking, "Auckland Repair"



I was reading the the online newspaper, New Zealand Herald and bumped into this article about the prosperity ranking of countries in the world.  You will find it interesting as the there is a co-relation of each country's prosperity versus the corruption rating in the world.  [http://tiny.cc/nz5]

Most of us that is living a stress-less lifestyle here in New Zealand would count our blessings; the economy is always stable; the education system is world-class and the kids' future seems much brighter than most of the so called "first world countries".

Famliy Day Trip to Rangitoto Island, Auckland (holiday, sea, cruise, island, ocean, lifestyle

Spent a splendid trip to Rangitoto Island with the Lew Family and mine.  It was very educational and refreshing day out (even though the sun was strong).  We took the tramp pulled by a powerful tractor and learned heaps of new information about this unique volcanic island (there is not insect or earthworm here due to the volcanic soil).  The driver is a typical Kiwi, pleasant, very knowledgeable, takes good care of his passengers.
We took the Fuller's ferry booked and paid online for the day trip.  I would suggest you bring your family there for short day trip, something for a change.

Waiting for Telecom New Zealand's action on Broadband Acccount (Auckland, New Zealand

26th October, 2010 -- Just talked to Mr. S N of Telecom New Zealand Broadband customer service. He is one of best customer service front liner we have came across so far.

We are wondering why our broadband was changed to dial-up speed yesterday with any person from Telecom informing us nor calling us to inform us.


The most important part is that we never give any verbal or written consent for them to change our data plan.

There might be a miscommunication on their part, so we will see what happen next.
