    Just looks the same. ;)

    My dog behaves different to my neighbors dog, does that mean his isn't actually a dog?

    Photos in Google tend to show a large amount of Macs...
    Looks as if they're so fond of it they're borrowing little bits.

    Hmm, looks nice but I can see plenty of customisation opportunity. If the devs get it right, I can see Android being a pretty awesome mobile OS.

    And also, is it just me or did the dev demo guy have an Apple Remote and a Keynote slideshow playing?

    Will GNote be Open Source too? :p

    It's Google; they only use OS X or some form of Linux. :D

    Probably. Write a good add on? Here, have 100 Million Dollars. That way, the tax man can't take it off Google. ;)

    Why not? There giving money away like sweets. 10 Million Dollars for writing a good App? I might dust off the Java books myself.

    Do we know if Android runs on a RAZR? I have an old flashed V3 hanging around that I could probably use as a test phone.

    And if it's not supported, I am so going to strip Android down to create AndroidLite (may re-think the name at some point) and score me £5mil. :D

    Yes, I do realise my plan has many failings... I might just stick with the GNote thing.

    flip3d, is that you? :confused: :rolleyes:

    i don't think it's $10M for any one good app. rather, it's $10M allotted for the best apps. maybe 10 apps at $1M each?
