 Congratulations to the ADC winners and finalists! 

Those apps look fantastic as a starting point for the newly-announced 
Android Market: 

Also, many thanks to the Android team, for not only surviving the ADC 
gauntlet, but for opening the kimono just a bit and describing the 
Market. Those of us trying to beat back the rumor-mongering welcome 
public statements like this that enhance the Android vision. Besides, 
it's always good to see places where we all can plug into the Android 

So, again, congratulations and thanks!

both weather application did not make it... what a waste to award them ADC
top 50 in the first place... this time it seems fair comparing to ADC I.

 Thank you all for providing benchmark standards in many categories.
The applications look like they will serve people well.  They make a
good and comprehensible foundation in that customers can figure out
that they want these!

A lot of people did, and managed, a nice set of work. Which is always
good to see.

Thank you,



Congratulations, ADC Winners / Thanks, Android Team!

 This is the beginning of the Mobile Revolution!

"After a pause to recover from the collapse of the telecommunications
economic bubble of the 1990s, the infrastructure
for global, wireless, Internet-based communication is entering the
final stages of development. The pocket
videophone I borrowed in Tokyo was proof that a high-speed wireless
network could link wireless devices and
deliver multimedia to the palm of my hand. The most important next
step for the companies that would deploy
this technology and profit from it has nothing to do with chips or
network protocols but everything to do
with business models, early adopters, communities of developers, and
value chains. It's not just about building
the tools anymore. Now it's about what people use the tools to do."

1. texts are not adding to intent for email

I am sending image using following. the image successfully send by
application. But The subject and text r not getting added to email.

I want to add body containing some hyperlink, I am doing this
Intent.EXTRA_TEXT but it is not going to added.

Will somebody will clear suggest me for. None of EXTRA working
(subject, title, text);

Uri uri = ContentUris.withAppendedId(Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, 2);

                Intent i = new Intent();


                i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "jigsaw");
         i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "

                i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri);
                i = Intent.createChooser(i, "Send");

2. local service getting killed

I have an app loosely based on the LocalService example from the SDK
with a controller activity and a long-running, stateful service which
is doing stuff on a periodic handler. The service is also a bit of a
memory hog.

It seems that the service is sometimes killed by the activity-manager
and immediately restarted. I don't see any stack trace, so I assume it
is not the application crashing but the system doing that, presumably
to claim resources. Is that what is going on here?

Is there a way to tell the system that this process is kind of
important, even though it has no foreground activity and should only
be killed as a last resort?
