Android-x86 on my EEE pc

I installed Android-x86 on my ASUS Eee PC in a matter of minutes following the detailed installation instructions. The hardest part of the process on Windows was using UnetBootin to build a bootable USB stick.

Seems like a fun way to hack around with Android. You don't even have to wipe the drive since it will also run in LiveCD mode.

Give it a try. I tried to install Todo Q for grins, but installation failed. Not sure if they only support native apps or what... gonna try to find out.

Holographic Theme Support and Faster Task Entry in Todo Q v3.0.2

Holographic theme support has been enabled in Todo Q v3.0.2 and provides a nice look and feel on Honeycomb devices. The most obvious changes include moving menu items to the action bar and colors suiting  the "holographic" theme. (Xoom screenshot)

Also in this release is a new FAST task entry dialog that makes task entry even faster. (Droid screenshot)

Upcoming changes to support a more streamlined entry of tasks and a clearer separation of tasks vs events should make for a busy summer.

Todo Q is STILL only $1.99 on the Android Market. Try it today.

Todo Q v3.0.0 now supports Google Tasks

Todo Q v3.0.0 adds support for Google Tasks with automatic synchronization, multiple task list support, completion and delete using the new Tasks API.

This has been a long time coming and I know some of you have been waiting for this feature. Glad the API finally surfaced.

Todo Q is still only $1.99 on the android market. The Amazon market will be a bit behind while I do the 27 steps required for publishing.
