Data suggests That Android Has Only Made $550 Million since 2008

Google and Oracle have been fighting in court for a long time now. Recently Google provided Oracle with a bunch of documents as part of a settlement offer to end the legal war. That data gives insight into how successful Google has been with Android operating system.

According to the documents between 2008 and into 2011 Android generated less than $550 million in revenue. The part that confuses me is with android being an open source and freely given operating system, I'm rather surprised it generated that much revenue.

Source: Cool Smart Phone

Now I’ve got to admit it had been some time since I’ve laid eyes on a phone made by Sharp, and that was a feature phone nothing in the current crop of smartphones. Now Sharp has unveiled a new smartphone, with a truly bezel-free design. The Sharp Aquos Crystal manages to cram a 5-inch screen into a body that stops right at the edge of that display. If the leaked image above is to be believed not only great looking device the Aquos has s ...

Kickstarter campaign begins for iPhone-controlled Bluetooth padlock

Locks always struck me as the perfect application for Bluetooth LE: walk up to the lock, it detects the phone in your pocket or bag, checks the code and unlocks. If you need to let someone else in, you authorize their app on a one-off or permanent basis. Simple, secure, convenient. There are a bunch of Bluetooth door locks on the way, and you can even lock and unlock your Mac via Bluetooth, so why ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
