I am a software developer who is also interested in business. I thoroughly enjoy the "people" aspect of software (interfacing with customers, users, etc) and I love working hard to solve a difficult problem. I have experience in Java, C#, ASP.NET, Javascript, and a little bit of C++ and a smattering of other languages. I have a great deal of experience with HCI and designing user interfaces.

comment Are iOS apps faster than android apps since android apps are interpreted?
As a bit of an add-on, ART will soon be replacing Dalvik as the Android runtime. A major change is no JIT compiling which, ultimately, has seen huge speed ups and battery life improvements. source.android.com/devices/tech/dalvik/art.html

comment Can you upgrade the RAM of an Android device?
And, you may ask, "why don't the designers make it possible to perform upgrades?" It basically comes down to size. Supporting upgradable RAM greatly increases the amount of space the internals take up which increases the size of the phone, the weight, etc.

comment Can using too much RAM drain battery?
Haha, I like the analogy (+1). (Although, technically, if you write something the notebook it will weight just a bit more...but I'm being too critical.) Something else to note for @MinNaingOo is that, if you're running a Task Manager, that Task Manager is also using power cycles (AKA CPU) to do what it needs to do. Hence...more battery is being used.

@Zooks64 - Oog. That's a bummer. Well, I just got 4.0.4 (the OTA pushes have begun). Next time I'm out driving, I'll test it out to see if the problem has resolved itself.

@LieRyan - Technically, I suppose it is Google Navigation. (I'm browsing to the street address through Google Maps.)

comment Seeing Huge Amount of Data Usage with Google Music
Thanks, Matt. I was afraid it was something like that. I guess I'll have it download my content on my wireless connection so I can go on long trips without racking up huge amounts of data charges.
