 Same time? Well, "Run" is perhaps the wrong word. I guess, you mean to say,
that the 2 activities should be active, i.e, not in pause or stop state at
the same time?

Well, if you go through the docs, this is not possible yet. Maybe in
Honeycomb, but till gingerbead you cannot  do this.

Sorry if I misunderstood your question.

One Service to listen to music, one activity to take a picture.

What the hell does that even mean?

1. MAC address?

I'm still on my unique device ID kick.

In Java 6, NetworkInterface has getHardwareAddress() to return the MAC 
address. According to the docs, Android 1.0r1 lacks this method.

Anyone know another way to get the MAC address of an Android device?

Thanks in advance!
