Kenny Embry
Kenny was tech when tech wasn't cool. He got his Ph.D. in communication studying how people form relationships on the Internet. He also worked in television news for five years.

He is the father of four, and his wife doesn't understand why he'd ever want to trade in a phone. Go figure.

It's a good day when someone at Google can point out the obvious, but Vice President of Corporate Development David Lawee told attendees at the Stanford Accel Symposium that acquiring Android Inc. was the "best deal ever" for the search behemoth.

Lawee commented on the Android founder, Andy Rubin, saying, "I saw this guy in my building for two years, walking his dog, and I was like, I hope this guy does something." During his time at Google, Rubin shepherded the OS and helped it become a serious competitor to Apple's iOS, RIM's BlackBerry OS, and Microsoft's Windows Mobile.

Android Eating iPhone
Last Updated: August 2nd, 2012

I have always been a techie. As a child of the 80s I had an IBM PC with a 10 megabyte hard disk that had to remain completely immobile and level or risk scratching, I had a 300/1200 baud internal modem and I stayed up all night downloading a 64 kilobyte game that, at the time, was the coolest thing I had ever seen. My wife, on the other hand, thought anything with a screen needed rabbit ears to get good reception and that PC stood for popcorn.

Android’s introduction in the marketplace hardly seems like it was less than two years ago. In that time we’ve gone from zero apps to a robust app market and enough unique handsets to give whiplash to every early adopter wanting to ride the bleeding edge.

With over 60 different phones, 70,000 apps in the marketplace, about 20 OS updates, and enough interest to keep dozens of full time blogs crammed with news, we can’t call Android a “baby” OS anymore, but we can’t call him mature, either.

Pundits have been saying for some time now there’s no sense in trying to predict a winner of the smartphone war. Some say that the marketplace is large enough to accommodate everyone and that cage fights make no sense because the iPhone and Android phones cater to different audiences. Really?

While some may not like labeling winners and losers, there are winners and losers in business every day.
