Hey what's up! I'm Bob and I'm definitely looking forward to using this forum, as I'm quite new to android software, droid phones, etc. My first droid is coming in the mail on Tuesday (HTC Incredible), and I'm definitely going to root this thing asap as I loved jailbreaking on my iPod (so much that I even made my own custom theme and a minor tweak that added blekko to the default search engines). I know that there's a lot of apple / iOS fanboys that hate android and anything that's not their precious 'perfection' of a phone software, but honestly I hated everything about apple when I was real into jailbreaking. Everything about it just screams pretentiousness, especially their site. That's why I picked up a 120gb zune when I needed to expand my portable music player's size from 64 gigs. Oh, and get this - I paid £150 for it, that's 40 us dollars less than a 8gb touch!! Now, mind you it was refurbished, but there's nothing different about it from a new one. I'm glad to be done with apple.
Anyways, my old cellphone was a blackberry pearl 8130, and while it claimed to be a 'smart phone' it really wasn't. Everything was super slow & cluttered, the keyboard made no sense (example: I would type in the word 'are' and it would be like "oh you must mean 'see'! That's more common, right?" and make me rub a ball to get over to 'are' and just get in the way. The battery life was like a day, no pictures would load in the mail app (security risk? please.) and overall it was a mess of a phone. I'll be sure to recycle it, but if wasn't going to I'd smash this thing with a rock.
I live in Rennes, France, originally from britain, moved here when I was 14. I'm 26 now, and I'm fluent in both french and english. I'm in an anti-folk band, which is more acoustic folk punk that sorta perverts traditional folk in a way that it is still folk-based, but has a sense of really strange, experimental, and obscure lyrics. Our name is 'les des vers luisants', which roughly translates to 'the glow worms' in english. I play the harmonica and do vocals.
Overall, I'm glad to be moving onto android development and can't wait to dig into my device and mess around with it. Oh, and use it too.
