TAT Home - Interesting Home Screen Alternative for Android

TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) has release a really interesting 3D home screen solution called TAT Home for Android:

"TAT Home is a gesture-powered 3D Home screen for Android that marries advanced UI technology with astonishing design. With simple gestures the user can perform everyday tasks - such as, Contacts, Messaging, Music and Weather without leaving the Home screen. In addition to standard Android Widgets, TAT Home supports unique widgets with 3D-graphics and innovative interaction methods."

I hope that TAT Home will be soon available via Android Market.

Linus Torvalds: Nexus One is a Winner

Read how the father of Linux, Linus Torvalds endorses Google's Nexus One in his blog:

"But I have to admit, the Nexus One is a winner. I wasn't enthusiastic about buying a phone on the internet sight unseen, but the day it was reported that it finally had the pinch-to-zoom thing enabled, I decided to take the plunge. I've wanted to have a GPS unit for my car anyway, and I thought that google navigation might finally make a phone useful.

And it does. What a difference! I no longer feel like I'm dragging a phone with me "just in case" I would need to get in touch with somebody - now I'm having a useful (and admittedly pretty good-looking) gadget instead. The fact that you can use it as a phone too is kind of secondary."

There you have it. Take that Steve - resistance is futile ...
