Google is activating 200,000 Android phones per day

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Things are looking great for Android. Google chief Eric Schmidt must have been feeling elated when he revealed that his company is now activating 200,000 Android phones a day. That number is 25 percent higher than the 160,000 per day from late June and is double the 100,000 phones that were being switched on just three months ago. People really love them some Android.

Schmidt said he wasn’t sure how long it would continue. He isn’t concerned about the free licensing hurting revenue since many Android owners run Google searches that pop up ads and generate revenue from impressions and click-throughs. He noted that iPhone owners also make money for Google that way.

Amulet launches voice-activated remote

Amulet launches voice-activated remoteIf you have been talking to your remote lately, you’ve probably noticed that it doesn’t listen to you. Which is annoying. The Amulet Remote is like a girlfriend/bartender/therapist in that it will actually listen to your non-stop drivel and won’t judge you for the maniac you undoubtedly are.

It was designed specifically for Vista Media Center but is probably adaptable to other setups. It’s essentially a voice-activated controller that lets users record a series, watch a recorded show, skip to a new playlist or queue up a photo slideshow just by talking to it. The built-in microphone is there for you in good times and bad. During the good times you’ll talk sweet to it. During the bad you’ll yell at that $%@# and tell it that it better record your show or else. Check out a video below.

Voice-Activated Biometric Safe is…safeWe sure got a ton of nerd rage regarding that Lego safe we posted last night. If you find the Lego safe to be not safe enough, maybe this safe is more up your alley. With the Voice-Activated Biometric Safe, you can be sure that your nerd-stuff (Like that valuable signed William Shatner album) stays safe and sound.

It will only open with a voice command! Once the proper sound waves of your voice are heard, the door will open automatically. If someone tries and fails, the alarm will sound. Of course, someone will just record your voice and can probably get in that way. It’s only $24.99 and takes three AA batteries.
