Request for potential research areas.

 There were a lot of ideas discussed in the android-discuss group. In
particular looks for posts dated around Feb - Apr 2008 (ADC1 timeline).

Some ideas:

To send out emergency signals during disasters, and when networks are down.
To sense emergency situations and send out distress calls.
To locate and track kids.
To go green. Share rides, locate public transports etc.,
To save time. Find nearest restaurants and reserve tables etc.,
Location based contextual information. Get relevant stuff as you move around
your location.
Social Networking - discover exciting new networks in your location.
Travel - Use camera, sensor, google earth etc., and find out real geo
location infos.

Given Android capabilites like bluetooth, gps, accelerometer etc., you have
to think a bit and see how these capabilites can be applied in alleviating
real life problems.

As i said, search the android-discuss group for more ideas. Good luck.

take care,

when i ran my old application in 1.6 i noticed that the progress bar
was not showing up on the screen.When i analyzed it further i found
the issue.The progress bar is getting activated but its not visible
since my background color is also white.When i changed the background
color i was able to see the progress bar.Is there no other way to make
the progress bar visible other than changing the background
color..Shouldn't the progress bar be visible under all background
