If you don't know what a widget is, you better Google the word then, but to save you from the overloaded world of Google I will quickly break down what a widget is. I am here of course to educate you people right.

A widget is a embeddable chunk of code. I hope that majority of you already have a online social profile like a Myspace or Facebook. So when someone says widget, think of your Youtube Player on your Myspace page, or take a look to the left side of my blog and see the ThisNext flash bag showing products that I like. Every stand alone embeddable chunk of code is pretty much a widget.

Wiki describes a widget as a "portable chunk of code that can be installed and executed within any separate HTML-based web page by an end user without requiring additional compilation. They are derived from the idea of code reuse. Other terms used to describe web widgets include: gadget, badge, module, webjit, capsule, snippet, mini and flake. Web widgets often but not always use DHTML, JavaScript, or Adobe Flash." (Source)

So what in the hell is SodaHead is a Question and Answers social community that lets you ask questions of your friends, the community or strangers. Your profile will track every answer you provide, leading to the largest profile on the Internet, without ever having to touch the usual registration fields. They offer a Question and Answers widget that can be embedded anywhere on the Internet as well as Groups, Blogs and a slew of search and match features based on your answers.

ANDROID – TG1 (The iPhone Terminator)

I would like to first apologize for being M.I.A. for a few weeks. Besides the Stock Market crash and digging wholes in my backyard to hide the dead bodies and the dirty money, I have been knee deep in securing a stable economic lifestyle. Yes everyone, I have officially joined the Jamaican Mafia.

So besides that, I think I have found a new love. It is called the T-Mobile G1. It is a mix between the iPhone and the SideKick.

If you don’t know by now, Google has finally made a deal with T-mobile to release its long awaited ANDROID

ANDRIOD, originaly developed by Google and later by the Open Handset Alliance is a operating sysytem / software platform for mobile devices. In simple terms it is a free mobile platform open to developers, similar to Mozilla’s FireFox.

So let’s start of a little different from the rest of the bunch. T-mobile G1’s phone won't do video capture (say what?), but there is a free player available to download, will not have stereo Bluetooth, will require a Gmail account, and won't be sold at stores outside of a 2-5 mile radius of T-Mobile's 3G coverage areas.

Never the less I am still buying this phone. I live in Los Angeles and we have the 3G networks, plus I am one of the many L.A. residence who still talks on the speaker phone while driving, blame my inablility to change on CW’s Gossip Girl. (Hey, when is Hollywood going to change the paper bag rule? Ahh, that is a topic for another blogger.)


This chart wich is an introduction to Android that is featured on YouTube illustrates the number of internet users in orange, and the the number of mobile phone users in blue. In 2007 there is about 1.1 billion internet users in the world, but there is three times (3 x) the amount of mobile users. This means that the average person has 2 if not more mobile devices in their possession. (One for work, one for personal businesses)


Android's co-founders who went to work at Google included Andy Rubin (co-founder of Danger) - Yep! Danger is the same company who makes T-mobile SideKick, and Nick Sears (once VP at T-Mobile). So who would of ever thought T-mobile would secure the first ANDRIOD mobile device. WOW! It really looks like a DANGE Sidekick device! AMAZING!!!!! Thanks Andy and Nick.

Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that the T-Mobile G1 can be unlocked after 90 days of activation. You will be able to place another sims in it. Also users will be able to create tethering or unlocking apps for the phones, Sweet! Oh that is not all folks, you can also buy a “contract free" G1 (with a price point of $399). I bet even the Craigslist Cartail can’t beat that. (I know they can but still, that is a low price)

This is just the beginning from Googles ANDRIOD, so please expect more.
