Hide yo kids - hide yo wives -- Antoine Dodson Sex Offender Tracker app

"This is either the funniest thing you'll see today -- or it's the most offensive. But every so often an internet video goes so viral that the rest of the world simply cannot ignore it. And sometimes the stars, or subjects of these videos become so popular and so recognized, that they're launched into a some minor realm of celebrity status.

Android Market Profitable?

We stepped out of a killer panel Monday from MobileBeat 2010 titled "How to turn Android into a money machine," and the answer from the panel to that very question seems to be "all the little things."

Install apps over the web with AppBrain

I admit, I'm an AppBrain fanboy.  Using a phone to dig and search through all the 68,000+ apps things in the Android Market is enough to drive anyone insane, so I don't do it unless I have to.  Today, using AppBrain just got better -- you can now install apps direct to your device, right from the AppBrain website.  Yes, just like the 'coming feature' from Google that Vic  Gundutra demoed at Google I/O, without the wait.  And it works on all modern versions of Android (1.5 and higher).  Hit the break for a quick how-to and a vi

Twitter releases official Android app

Android 2.1+ Two weeks ago, Twitter announced it was developing its own official Android app. Today, that client was released. You can find it now in the Android Market. [link] There's been a bit of gnashing of teeth over whether Twitter is effectively stabbing outside developers in the back. But after just a few minutes with the app, that's certainly not the case yet, for a couple reasons.

HP Compaq Airlife 100 Android netbook

Seems like only yesterday that we were talking about the HP Compaq Airlife 100 Android netbook -- oh, wait, it was, both here and on the special Emergency PalmCast Broadcast in the wake of HP buying Palm for $1.2 billion.

Firefox for Android phones

This isn't the first time we've seen the Firefox mobile browser running on Android, but it's the first time that Mozilla's been comfortable enough with it to compile the app for us mere mortals to test out.
