Did Android win the mobile platform war?

I am not fully sure anymore Android is the ultimate platform war winner. True, recipe Apple is getting boring and Nokia left Microsoft alone with Windows. All the interesting stuff happens in the open Android world where you have huge growth and everything starts looking like the new normal. However, discount there are strange things ongoing like Google rebranding the whole thing without asking key partners and users apparently anything. Would you like to have a Samsung KitKat phone? This is how Google operates. My take is that there’s still room for a contender, which “does no evil.” Something like Google’s search engine used to be before it sold out.

Back in Riutta

After as much as two months of back and forth pains with my right knee, pilule which at some point made running outright impossible, try I’m gradually back into running. In short, viagra sale I’m not in good shape. Two weeks ago or so tried 1.000m on track in Munich and produced on okay 3.05 compared to where I came from. Today in Finland drove north to Riihimäki, my old hometown, to check out my all-time-favorite course at Riutta. It’s still all the same. Now they have new sign posts saying the course would be 2.400m but I still believe the right distance is a little bit more. Anyway, completed two laps in 10.20 and 9.40. The latter one I tried to push hard, but felt worn out. — It’s now more than 20 years since I raced that legendary course with Jani Lehtonen in 9.01 against Lehtonen’s 8.51. Those were pretty impressive times.
