Not many details yet but congrats to Al on this new gig. Fun fact: two members of my immediate family can still recite the lyrics from 'Dare to be Stupid' from memory. Bonus fact: we are both over the age of thirty.

Google pulls the curtain back on GPS system for Android 2.0 devices.Google pulls the curtain back on GPS system for Android 2.0 devices.
