When Android 3.0 was finally previewed by Motorola on their Xoom tablet and LG on their G-Tablet, it was no secret that everybody was astonished at the brand new Android OS. It was completely revamped or rather, as Google called it, “overhauled”. When Matias Duarte (ex-webOS UI team head) became the head of the Honeycomb polish-squad, everyone knew we’d be in for a treat. During an interview with Engadget during CES2011 (or should we just call it Androidpalooza?), Duarte assured us that this UI, or at least a version of it, would show up on future Android phones; more specifically, a “phone version” of Honeycomb is imminent. So that raises a very interesting question: what should we expect for future Android phones? What will we most assuredly see transfered to phones and what will remain only on tablets? Here are my two cents on the topic.
Earlier today I read an article over at SocialBeat by Anthony Ha (one of my favorite writers over at that site) that discussed the idea that Zuckerberg would be a great fit as Apple’s next CEO. Even though I was skeptical from the start, I tried to read this with an open mind; but each word surprised me more than the last. First off, before I even begin arguing my thoughts, it’s obvious that Apple needs to start thinking ahead about this subject. Not to say that Jobs is nearing the end of his career, but in the sense that Apple is now the biggest company in technology and it’s all due to the innovation and charisma of their current leader. Finding the next Steve Jobs is an incredibly difficult task, and it’s something that should be discussed well before his retirement – a time like now. If there’s a circle filled with possible successors, I honestly have no idea who’s inside of it; but one thing I do know is that Mark Zuckerberg is definitely not going to be found within that circle. Not that he’s not an amazing CEO; I mean – he nearly single-handedly changed the way our social lives work – but because I don’t feel he’d be a great fit as the leader of a company like Apple.
