    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone caught the news here in los angeles on channel 9 the other day where they did a report on Google's new star tracker software. They had a reporter up at the Griffith observatory talking to the astronomers about the application. They all said it was great for amateur star gazers. they ended the report with.. "If you want this application you will need an Android based phone, as he held his G1 in the air!

    Might not be such a big thing but the fact that they likely got people asking.. "what's android?" is a good thing! Long live Android. :cool:

    I was surprised at how hollywood that report seemed. I guess it is LA news. It seems very much like a PR firm was involved, but still good to see, thanks for sharing.
