 Thanks. Can you also tell me how can I specify recipient of my message
when I start the intent?

1. Android on netbooks

Even before we have such things as "netbooks", "mobile devices",
"smartphones"... there was the "PDA" or personal digital assistant,
then there was the pda-phone and mobile phones. IMHO, these terms are
just marketing terms made up by the marketing departments of the
companies of these products.

For instance, the present day pda-phone or mobile device phone is just
an outgrowth of the original pda "concept" where one keeps their
contacts, tasks and notes in this device, and then someone thought it
might be "neat" to combine this pda device with a cellphone device...
To me, a clear evidence of this is the Windows Mobile Phone, even
after going through a number of upgrades, it still cannot disguise
this legacy that the mobile phone portion was just a "add-on-thing"
and not a fully integrated part of the device. Where the phone
capability of the device seamlessly interacts with the other apps in
the device...

However, I feel that android should not be limited by the platform it
runs on, whether this be a mobile device, a smartphone, a netbook, a
notebook or even a desktop PC...

Not to veer too far from the topic at hand, my interest of having
android running on a netbook, actually stems from a more selfish
reason. I own an acer aspire one, and would like to have the option of
booting and running my netbook on android from a usb thumb drive, for
those occasions when I am connecting to a public wifi network, maybe
just to quickly check and send emails or I might need to check
something in the internet. Although, the security on android (being
linux-based) is not a 100% assurance from viruses and malwares, I
would still feel a little more at ease in these situations if I am
using android...

In fact, there are some people who claim that they have been able to
run android on their respective netbooks, like the following link


2. How to force screen to switch between landscape/portrait

Is there a way to programmatically force the screen to change between landscape 
and portrait mode? I want to allow the user to choose a menu item to rotate the 
screen, instead of relying on pulling out the keyboard.

I am looking for something like Activity.changeScreenOrientation, but couldn't 
find such a thing in the API docs ...
