At your own risk, nandroid backup first etc.

Until they get that Picasa-like music syncing in there, not much to write home about but hey man, Honeycomb. If you’d rather pass on installing it and instead watch a video of it in action, knock your socks off:

You know, for you bloggers out there, if you’re wondering what to write about and want to try to scoop other sites for once (not saying I did that in this instance but if I had fewer things to do in life I might have), just keep an eye on the development and apps forums of both your phone and of your phone’s platform on various forums which I further and more strongly recommend you stuff into Google Reader to sync up with your phone. That’s a good tip right there.

Here’s another good tip – go easy on the Red Bull; that shit’s addictive, and it isn’t cheap like crack.

Biographical info.. hmm. I have a history of not being able to strike the balance between what is "safe" to put into these forms and what is, in my mind at least, funny. Can't do it.

  1. The older default Android Apps I could excuse because they were from an earlier time. This one looks pretty lame, and there are much better Android Music Apps out there.

  2. Well it’s apparent with this one that they’re rigging up some sort of Picasa-like syncing, Google Music. We’ll see how lame it is when that’s functional.
