TouchDown Exchange Android app updated to version 3.0

I've written about TouchDown for Google Android in the past and it is one of the best priced apps I have purchased for my T-Mobile G1. I actually popped my SIM card in my G1 yesterday morning and discovered there was an upgrade to TouchDown that brought it up to version 3.x. I then received an email from the company with all the details surrounding this latest upgrade. As I mentioned before in my TouchDown articles, the NitroDesk Inc. people have been regularly updating the application to make the Exchange experience better and better for Google Android devices.

TouchDown provides push email for the T-Mobile G1 Android device

I've written about TouchDown for the Google Android a couple of times (here and here) and as I have said in those posts it gets better and better on a regular basis. I have been using beta versions and the latest available beta supports PUSH email, ability to send attachments, device-local drafts, and more. The folks at NitroDesk, Inc. were able to sign a licensing agreement with Microsoft to support direct push capability through Exchange ActiveSync. I think this is one of the first products for the G1 that provides this functionality, even though a couple others are working on it as well.

Google Airwaves Inc among list of 700mhz bidders

It isn't a surprise that Google bid on spectrum in the FCC auction for the 700mhz spectrum, however I found the name it filed under interesting -- Google Airwaves Inc. There has been speculation that Google and Apple entered the auction together, and maybe this is the reason for incorporating a separate company on November 26th.

The google time share signal

The key reason time-sharing failed in the 80s and will fail again over the next few years is simply that owning all of a resource always provides better control than renting a chunk of it -
