Android 4.1 is expected to be revealed at Google I/O

When it comes to smartphone operating systems, it appears as though all the major players are preparing updates. Apple recently revealed iOS 6. Microsoft this week took the wraps off Windows Phone 8. Beleaguered RIM is hoping to right its sinking ship with the BlackBerry 10 OS.
Not to be left out, Google is readying its follow-up to Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich”. Google's next operating system release was hinted at today via a slip-up on Google Play. The site listed the Galaxy Nexus smartphone as being available with Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean". The listing also notes that the OS is arriving “soon”, so all signs are pointing to it being announced next week at the Google I/O conference.

Nobody knows what Google has planned for the OS update, but we should expect to see Chrome take center stage as the primary browser for Jelly Bean instead of being a seperate download. Given the 4.1 designation for Jelly Bean, don't count on a drastic overhaul of the operating system -- it looks as though we'll have to wait for Android 5.0 for that to happen.

Masher had, by a mile, I think the most extensive engineering knowledge at DT, and more then most tech websites in general, which tend to be programmer types or just enthusiasts. He was the only one that truly knew what the heck he was talking about on matters like nuclear energy. People simply hated him pointing out flaws and abuses in the global warming science, primarily in the vein of the science can stand on its own but scientists too often warped, manipulated or outright fabricated things to fit their agenda. He also caught a little hate for pointing out the unfortunate facts that renewable energy was a waste of money in a cost-benefit analysis sense, particularly a couple years ago before China started trying to get rich taking Europeans money for subsidized wind and solar equipment and we ended up with a supply glut when hard times trimmed some subsidies.

Might've disagreed with his politics, but his facts were usually straight on: GISS had been turned in to that one guys personal crusade army, and nuclear was, from an engineering perspective, not at all what greens made it out to be.

DT, I think, has been reduced without him. Kristopher being AWOL isn't cool, either.

Nuclear isn't as clear cut as a lot of folks here wish it was. I'm not sure what expertise he had as an engineer.

There is a lot of abuse in science, I agree. There are a lot of people in the field who believe that they are super intelligent creatures who ought to be given all the milk in the gov'ts teat to keep on doing their research. Give me a billion dollar toy and I'm sure I could do some pretty funky stuff with it, too.

In any event, Jason seems to have picked up the torch after Masher. You, Reclaimer, and Fit, are probably the three most diametrically opposed to my own philosophies in politics. I miss his more speculative writing that he did while Masher was writing.

Nuclear has a lot more going against it than the reds would have you believe. :)
