"Hex triplet #40E0D0"
Screen resolution: Galaxy S III's screen has more pixels, arrayed 720 x 1280. iPhone 4S has 640 x 960 pixels. Compound that by the screen sizes: S III measures 4.8 inches diagonally versus 3.5 inches for the iPhone 4S. The result is that the iPhone 4S has more pixels per square inch and thus provides a sharper image. The additional pixels per inch do not make up for the screen size in overall viewing ease - you see more, more easily, on the S III's bigger screen.
Price (with contract) $199 vs. $200
Price (without contract $749 vs. $549
For carriers the most important difference is the price: there is $200 more profit for selling and Android device. And that would be easy on just numbers, since on every stat is better on Samsung. But iPhone is just more liked, because it is more reliable and polished.
iPhone is an status symbol, as a Mercedes. You can purchase and Hyundai for much less money and more features, and it simply not the same.
Many of those who have Mercedes in fact can't afford it. Same goes for iPhone.e Most of the expense is in fact on the phone plan. And those 'networks' are in fact built quite inefficiently, parallel and not connected to each other...
“SPDY” is a drop-in replacement for HTTP networking that
should be invisible to both clients and servers.
It was cooked up at Google, and is built into Chrome and Firefox,
and a lot of the servers at Google use it.
Mike Belshe, who’s sort of seen as the guy behind SPDY,
used to work for Google but doesn’t any more."
SPDY does not replace HTTP; it modifies the way HTTP requests and responses are sent over the wire. This means that all existing server-side applications can be used without modification if a SPDY-compatible translation layer is put in place. When sent over SPDY, HTTP requests are processed, tokenized, simplified and compressed. For example, each SPDY endpoint keeps track of which headers have been sent in the past requests and can avoid resending the headers that have not changed; those that must be sent are sent compressed.
Berlin-based studio J. Mayer H. has designed the Dupli Casa project. The 12,800 square foot, three story, contemporary home is located near Ludwigsburg, Germany, and was completed in August 2008.
The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation.
More than a third (34.3 percent) of smartphone owners use Apple iPhone. Samsung is a distant second with 17 percent, followed by HTC (14 percent) and Motorola (11 percent).

Amazon.com is becoming an "infrastructure" of the economy.
The low prices are not free, since working condition in warehouses are not great,
many popular affordable products are imported, and while it is easy to become
one of large number of sellers on Amazon (2+ million!) there is no sustainable advantage.
Go is a new programming language focused on speed, safety, and simplicity. It blends a C-like syntax-including curly braces-with automatic garbage collection and new features designed specifically for concurrency.
Go comes with numerous high-quality libraries, and its compile speed is blazingly fast, even on lightweight hardware.
Go is primarily sponsored by Google, but it's used at companies like Canonical and Heroku.
And there are already two compilers for the Go language,
and there is also interactive online "playground" ("REPL")
Microsoft "answer", SkyDrive, has almost identical purpose: sharing files online.
Editable "documents" are exception, rather than a rule.
The API is also REST based, and there are samples in many prog. languages...
Apparently Apple has again defined user expectations, with iCloud.
For example, traffic jam info is assembled from other SmartPhones and "cloud".
The search engines select "most popular" info to share with others... We "align" our behavior and opinion based on shared info (Google+, Facebook...)
So there are: DNA, Neural Cells and Smart Phones :)
The Apps are almost like DNA. The code provide a template, and actual data / environment on each running instance of the program behaves slightly differently...
This time, he provided a visual description that is helpful.
Here is another useful site with similar description.

For some reason, many Bayes descriptions are using "cancer" as an example.
Google has pulled the Nexus from its US Play store, and the phone has been changed from "for sale" to "coming soon" with no other information.
By the way, the Google is selling the Nexus phone for $349,
that is about half the price of iPhone 4S.
Most likely Google is not making profit on such sales,
so that may be the best "deal" on a smartphone.
Same goes for Nextus 7 tablet ($199), that is being challenged
by Nokia patents recently...
It is interesting that from most of Android devices sold, Microsoft is getting $5 to $15 on patents licensing, but Apple does not want to provide any license, and Google does not want to pay any.
Patents are a mess... A useful tool, but a mess.
Second most popular language is Java,
and its creator James Gosling also has a beard.
He also briefly worked in Google after Oracle's purchase of Sun.
