About 10 years ago, there was a lot of buzz about network appliances, but not much happened. Android may be the missing piece for wide-scale release and adoption of network appliances.

Yet, android isn't well optimized for pc and laptops. Google should quit chrome OS and focus on optimizing Android pc. Then I will definitely install android on my laptop.

So, the "Terminator" movies had the right idea, just the wrong system. When does Android become self-aware?
Instead Instead of Arnold, it will be the Little Green Robot chasing down John and Sarah Conner.......

For me? Favi SmartStick. DUDE! IT TURNS YOUR OLD LCD/LED/PLASMA TV INTO A SMARTER TV. That's just sick! And it would just cost you $50. just wow.

I've got a smart tv, and I'm still considering a SmartStick. What could make my SmartTV smarter? Android, of course.
