hello world app I get the following:

Automatic Target Mode: launching new emulator with compatible AVD
Launching a new emulator with Virtual Device 'my_avd'
NAND: could not write file /tools/android-sdk-linux_x86-1.5_r1/

1. Best Practice for Activities that Absolutely Depend on Services

My application is full of Activities that are absolutely dependent on
a connection to a financial data server (trading system).  The
Activity has the following requirements:

- a user needs to be logged into the server in order to have
permission to view data
- the Activity has to query methods on the loggedOnUser to find
trading permissions
- the Activity has a large amount of UI view code that depends on
extracting values from trading orders

If the connection to the server, which I hope to implement in a
Service, is down or not connected yet, what is the best practice for
implementing the Activity, for login permission purposes, and also to
avoid NullPointerExceptions when asking for data through methods that
may return null?  And what is the best practice for publishing Service
data to the Activity?

I see a couple of solutions

- write the Activity so that it starts up no matter what the status of
the connection/Service, and in all of the Activity methods that deal
with data to guard agains NullPointerExceptions (i.e. assume anyhing
coming from the server could be null at any time

- or, in the onCreate() of the Activity, check for the existence of a
fully connected Service.  IF it's there, allow the Activity to start
and assume that all data is non-null.  if the Service disconnects,
finish() the Activity and go to an interim Activity saying,
"reconnecting please wait...'  restart the Activity when Service is
connected again.   IF the Service is NOT viable on Activity
onCreate(), finish() the Activity in onCreate() and start the
temporary "connecting please wait" Activity, and when Service is
viable again, start the main Activity back up.


2. Acer Iconia A500


Anyone is using Acer's Iconia A500 for development and want to shares
pro/cons of that model on that subject?

PS: I know specs are not stunning - I do not care - it have to be cheapest
one available with Honeycomb that works. And Transformer seems to be out of
stock everywhere I checked, so this one is second on the list.
