The Real Android Opportunity: Core Apps

Google's Android operating system has proven itself a growing force to be reckoned with as adoption rates among manufactures and consumers continue growing at considerable rates. I feel that Android 2.1 has finally reached a point where it is ready for the mass market.

Most common of all, though, is the device's ability to lose service based on the position the device is within your grasp. There's been all sorts of claims, from it being the external antenna to the software inside, and it's lead to several different situations.

iOS4 downgrade guide to 3.1.3 saves sluggish iPhones

When iOS4 was released earlier this week, it seemed like a no-brainer for iPhone 3GS, 3G and iPod touch owners to update: after all, free software and boosted features can't be argued with, right?  Unfortunately for many users its turned out to be less impressive than expected, with some handsets now running sluggishly, battery life taking a significant dip and in general the whole experience being sub-par.  Apple may well update iOS4 for these earlier devices and iron out some of the hassles, but until then Lifehacker has a handy guide for downgrading back to iOS 3.1.3.
