Android Helps Mobile Health Apps Get Well 

,----[ Quote ]
| In developing countries where mobile phones 
| are the most common device for Net access, 
| mobile health (mHealth) applications are 
| taking on a new importance. According to 
| researchers at the Massachusetts Institute 
| of Technology (MIT), open-source mobile 
| platforms are equally as important to 
| closing the healthcare divide.

| As an open-source platform, users can 
| download code online and install it in any

ELC: Android and the community

,----[ Quote ]
| Greg Kroah-Hartman delivered some "tough
| love" to Android in his keynote at this
| year's Embedded Linux Conference (ELC). He
| is very clearly excited about Android and
| what it can doâuses it daily as his regular
| phoneâbut is unhappy with Google's lack of
| community engagement. There is hope that
| things will change, he said; there has been
| a fair amount of "introspection" at Google
| that he hopes will lead it in a more
| community-oriented direction.
| [...]
| There were several things that Google did
| right, Kroah-Hartman said, starting with
| its choice of Linux. In an aside, he noted
| that all phone manufacturers bring up their
| phones using Linux, including Apple with
| the iPhone; "a little-known fact". He also
| lauded Google for following the kernel
| license, which is something that Palm
| didn't initially do with WebOS, he said. He
| pointed to android.git.kernel.org as a
| "wonderful site" that contains all of the
| Android code in easily accessible Git
| repositories. But "that's all the good".
