Failed promises of Android 2.3 Gingerbread…

Jul 27

AndroidLike many people with an Android phone, in my case the older non HD HTC Desire, we subscribed to the maker as it’s without a doubt a good product (so much so Google bought it). It’s an alternative to the usual iPhone, it’s Open Source, cheaper and very soon will be equally, if not more popular than the iPhone. Currently, Android market has in excess of 300,000 apps which is increasing all the time. When I switched I liked the open source aspect of the OS. Its ability to sync my other Google accounts fairly dynamically in addition was a great bonus. I also liked the fact it’s customiseable in that the dev community can contribute to it’s ongoing overall development through apps with an open SDK (something apple doesn’t have which is still being improved on). Promises of access to the Bootloader should be coming soon.

Parachute jump done…

Sep 16

Having gathered all monies in finally, I raised just over £400 for my charity jump!. Not bad but had hoped for better. Thanks to everyone that sponsored me and for those that didn’t, be ashamed!!. I don’t ask for much. Don’t be as ashamed though, as the few that said they’d pay and didn’t. Let’s hope, they never need my help.

That's meI completed my charity Solo RAPS Static Line Parachute jump in Lancaster at the Black Knights parachute centre on the 12th September in aid of Pancreatic cancer. Please, despite the fact I have already jumped, still Sponsor me. The sponsorship page will remain open for upto 8 weeks I am told. Any amount is appreciated, the more generous the better. Remember it is for a good cause!!. continue reading…

This is simply additional sponsorship, which I hope gets some interest online and will go straight to the charity I have chosen without a need by me to pester for cash. continue reading…
