Forget Froyo, Gone Gingerbread - Say - Hello Honeycomb

If you just updated your andriod devices to froyo, you are already one step behind in android releases. But With all the goodness in each update, why would you wait. Howver, if you are an early adopter, Google is not sleeping when you are waiting.





Behold. The first (leaked) view of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).


It says it is for Tablets. But since its a major release, My guess is Google would have thought, ahead, of consolidating things around its three major android target devices. Mobiles, Tablets, and TV. For those who had apprehension about the pullout of Logitech revue and other Google devices, this might just be the wake up call. The time is not to stop for stopping. But wait for the NEW!

2011 will be a great year to spend time with gadgets. Apple are you ready?

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
