Samsung's very own Android developer forum goes live
Thanks to Samsung, amateur and professional Android developers have a new virtual playground where they can share ideas and polish their programming skills. The company has just launched its very own developer-oriented forum, and judging by the tools that it offers, it can be of help to novice and hardcore programmers alike.

The forum features a ton of helpful information, yet naturally, it relates exclusively to Samsung's Android devices. Nevertheless, developers who do not mind creating software by using Samsung's Android smartphones and tablets as a canvas will be pleased to find detailed product hardware specifications, both basic and advanced code examples, coding tutorials, software development kits, and even device emulators. There is even a way of uploading your app and getting it tested on a real Samsung device under the company's supervision!

So, if you are into software development or you want to get involved but don't know where to start, check Samsung's forum out. Who knows, maybe you can become the next Bill Gates.

Thank you for supporting an open Android, Sammie! Now... drop the Touchwiz and go vanilla.

I don't see what the big deal is. I don't mind phone manufacturers implementing their own launchers as long as they allow their customers to uninstall them. You have to have a launcher on Android and the stock one isn't anything to rave about. There are so many launchers on the market now, it's so flexible to find a launcher that suits an individual's needs. One inconvenience I do see is the tight coupling between some launchers and their widgets, HTC, I'm looking at YOU! It would be nice to use some of HTC's widgets with other launchers.

But even if you can't uninstall an OEM launcher, it's not a big deal, you can still install multiple launchers on the same device. It's like how you can install multiple MP3 players on your laptop (WinAmp, iTune, WMP), you just have to re-associate your launcher w/all the launcher specific tasks. Android should make this more convenient to do though.

Our wedding anniversary is coming, I want to get a best bluray DVD player for my dear. However, I have a blank mind which one is the great. I want the DVD player I choose is able to have high quality and pleasing design. Plus, I want the price under $300. Sara suggested me to look at best bluray dvd player reviews before purchasing. I did, while still have a blank mind which could meet his needs. Anybody used one they are fond of or heard of one with great functions? Thanks in advance!
