- You can now find out more about the universal search function that is to come with Android 1.6 by reading a lengthy article, available on on Android Developers (full of source code that goes way over our heads). If you are interested in the details, just follow the source link. We take comfort knowing the Quick Search will be quite similar to the version of the function as seen on the Palm Pre.

- Survivor: Samoa right on the screen of your Palm Pre.

- You will be able to call your buddies via Twitter... if you happen to have a Jajah account. Dialling someone means you will have to enter obscure things like „@call @username”. The maximum duration of single calls during the trial period is limited to 2 minutes, but that´s clearly enough to allow you to say more than what you could by,say, typing 140 character messages (abbreviations included). The guys with Jajah claim the feature is available through both desktop PCs and smartphones with access to Twitter. (source: CNET)
