Useful Android App – SMS Backup +

0

I used to have an iPhone3G and had down graded to a cheap pay as you go phone for some time. I just wanted a simpler cheaper phone for texting and calling.

Last summer I decided to get a new smartphone… so I ended up with an HTC Incredible S.

I haven’t completely loaded the phone with apps. I do have certain apps that I use on a regular basis… like the DropBox app, a couple of sports news apps… Hootsuite and Flickr.

One nice little app I found is SMS Backup +

Basically, you can sync this app to backup your text messages to your GMail account. It also creates a label to put this mail in to keep it organised.

This is great if you want to archive messages and also keep your phone a bit cleaner.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer thinks you need to be a computer scientist to use an Android phone

Found this interview with Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO, and thought it was interesting.

It’s neat to hear him talk about Microsoft’s products and take questions reflecting some of the technology giant’s future. But I just couldn’t help but be amused by some of the question/answers.

For instance, when it came to questions about Windows phones… and then being asked to compare to Apple’s iPhone and Android phones. Ballmer says you need to be a computer scientist to use the Android phone.

Well, come on Steve. It’s really not that bad. Have you ever actually used one? I understand you can’t get excited about Android phones… I mean, you’re trying to sell and push the Windows phones right?? Oh yeah, right.

Anyways. It’s amusing.

The part about the Android phone is at about the 21 minute mark.

Enjoy!
