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!
