1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I bought a Droid because I am a passionate believer in Open Source systems; practicality would have led me to buy an iPhone to go with my iMAC.

    I worked in the computer industry for over 30 years, in IBM, Lotus (before IBM), my own Internet start-up that failed, and then running a not-for-profit helping 100,000 kids worldwide to use the Web for educational purposes. I am now retired and my programming skills are very rusty, so I can act as a useful foil for the power programmers!

    A major interest is UI design, and I hope that the Droid community can steer the Android folk and the hardware manufacturers to keep improving the UI and the system integration. I found the iMAC far less "perfect" in its UI than is commonly assumed.
