In the early 80s, one of the great strengths of IBM over Apple-Mac was that IBM published the schematics and BIOS code. This allowed many developers to hack, modify, extend, and create new hardware never previously imagined, and made IBM the go-to PC for all the extreme applications. By opening the developer community in this way, I think that Google will likewise take market share from Apple. This is what happened with GWBASIC, Borland-C and other PC development tools, and won the $$$ of the git-r-done engineers.

Excellent ideas, both the app tool from Google and the suggestion about the EE Times app. The Droid X comes out tomorrow and Verizon expects to sell a few of them, so this is very timely!

Who can write an app that would show EE Times news on your phone via an RSS feed? Optional upgrade would include comments on articles and notify you when someone comments on an article. The best app written for EE Times News should win a Google phone!

Google labs have come up with this cool tool, which they claim, will enable anyone to write Android apps. They as part of trial let some school students to use the tool and it seems those kids could write some simple social networking apps. Is this step good on part of Google for Android?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
