Android 1.0 SDK download available for developers

The Android platform is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. Developers can create applications for the platform using the Android SDK.

Applications are written using the Java programming language and run on Dalvik, a custom virtual machine designed for embedded use, which runs on top of a Linux kernel.

The main objective of the release of this new development environment is to try to provide a stable platform for developers, which will see the beginning of the Android Market on October 22 2008.

Major improvements to the package, compared to version 0.9, are related some bugs resolved and inclusion of some API. Going on the Android developer's blog, you can already see some applications ready for commercialization, such as Panoramio and Photostream.

Panoramio is software that displays web galleries, using the principle of geo, namely: choosing a specific area from a map, can view the best photos in a gallery, using the GPS with the broadband connection.

Photostream is a "photo browser" and viewer for Flickr, which allows, in addition to traditional navigation of photos on Flickr, to import new images as wallpaper for your phone, the same manipulation of images and the ability to create direct links on the desktop image ever loaded on Flickr.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
