 I wanted to call the attention of all Android developers to an event
happening in conjunction with CTIA in Las Vegas later this month, with
particular attention on the AppWar, a free competition for mobile

The Andrew Seybold Innovation Rally, offered for the first time this
year as part of ANDREW SEYBOLD WIRELESS UNIVERSITY, offers an up-close
look at how some of today most innovative thinkers are rallying to
create and deploy new mobile services that extend their lead over the
rest of the industry. This racing-themed program will provide a unique
look into the future of blended services, data and applications. As a
backdrop for these discussions, the program will highlight advances in
electric car technology and a first look at a igital dashboardthat
fulfills the promise of proximity-based content. Innovation Rally
speakers will include Rick Geremeth, Vice President of IT for
Motorsports Authentics; Michael Kadie, CEO of Electric Car Kit SSI
Racing; Mike Wehr, CEO of the Mobile Marketing Association; James
Oyang, CEO of Pharos; Nagesh Challa, Chairman of Ecrio Inc.; and Sue
Marek, Editor-in-Chief for Fierce Wireless. For a complete agenda for

1. Application dataflow query - BroadcastReceiver / ContentProvider / Activity

I've developed an application that receives a Broadcast and then
launches an Activity, where that Activity queries a ContentProvider
which pulls information out of the DNS in real-time.

I'd like to be able to shuffle this so that instead of going:

  BroadcastReceiver -> Activity -> ContentProvider.query()

it goes:

   BroadcastReceiver -> ContentProvider.query() -> Activity

If the query() returns no data I want to miss out launching the
activity, and allow the Broadcast message to fall through as normal.

If the query() does return data, I want that Cursor to be supplied to
the Activity, so that I don't have to go and query for the data again.

Is this possible?




2. General Question to Google Team - Pin favourite threads

Hi Google-Team,

I was wondering, why there is no functionality to pin threads a user
is interested in. As there is such a high traffic on these groups, it
takes time to find the threads I answered to or some I am interested
to see how the problem is solved. Sometimes you don't remember the
naming of the subject or the user that wrote it and then searching
becomes annoying.

An easy way would be to pin some threads! I mean the right side is
nearly empty an everybody is authenticated when she uses the group,
not to just read.

Many thanks in advance for reading.
