Mozilla is quick to note that this is a pre-Alpha build of the browser, and is only for testing purposes. But that isn’t stopping Mozilla’s Vladimir Vukićević from announcing it on There also aren’t yet any automated nightly developer builds or automated updates to this build; it’s even more of a pre-nightly build (even earlier than pre-alpha). But, it’s usable enough that we wanted to get some feedback on it as we continue to develop,” he notes.

To get this build, you can visit this link on your Android device. Or you can point your phone’s browser to: bit.ly/fennec-android. And yes, there’s a QR code on Vukićević’s blog post if you want to scan it, and download it that way. Whichever way you do it, you’ll need to make sure your settings allow you to install non-Market apps (go to Settings, Applications, and check “Unknown Sources”).

Some other warnings and notes to consider about the build from Vukićević:

  • We’ve only really tested this on the Motorola Droid and the Nexus One.
  • It will likely not eat your phone, but bugs might cause your phone to stop responding, requiring a reboot.
  • Memory usage of this build isn’t great — in many ways it’s a debug build, and we haven’t really done a lot of optimization yet. This could cause some problems with large pages, especially on low memory devices like the Droid.
  • You’ll see the app exit and relaunch on first start, as well as on add-on installs; this is a quirk of our install process, and we’re working to get rid of it.
  • You can’t open links from other apps using Fennec; we should have this for the next build.

He also notes that there’s an experimental version of Weave, Mozilla’s syncing tool that will work with this pre-Alpha build of Fennec. Visit this page and click on the “Experimental version” to find it.

Facebook's Privacy Changes Get Scary

Facebook's long had some privacy issues, and now that they're broadening their reach on the web, who knows what'll happen next? Oh, right. We do: 2007 - Facebook Beacon links your purchases at online stores to your Facebook account so your friends (and marketers) can see what you're buying. 2010 - Facebook makes it impossible for you to hide certain information, such as your interests and location, from everybody. 2011 - Facebook History Tracker makes your web surfing history publicly viewable on your feed (and to marketers). After a brief uproar, Facebook enables an "incognito mode" for when you want to look at porn, but it's buried deep within the settings and automatically shuts off after each session. 2012 - Facebook Life Recorder is a small camera apparatus that's worn on your head, automatically tagging the friends you interact with via facial recognition and posting to your wall. Information such as where you shop and what you buy is put into a database (for marketers). 2014 - Facebook Implant combines a chemical scanner with a GPS chip. Everything you eat and everywhere you go are automatically posted to your News Feed in minute detail. This setting can be deactivated through outpatient surgery. 2015 - Facebook Guy Who Moves Into Your House With You and Is Always On the Phone With Potential Advertisers Telling Them What You're Doing meets initial resistance, but once the site starts publicizing its "Watcher Marriages"—instances where a follower and followee have fallen in love—public opposition melts away. 2016 - Mark Zuckerberg is elected president in the first election that allows voting via Liking candidates on Facebook. 2017 - Facebook User Relocation to Facebook's Headquarters ensures Facebook's ability to track every single thing you do to post to your Feed. Considered necessary after "Watcher Marriages" resulted in too many compromised Facebook Guys Who Move Into Your House With You. 2018 - Facebook Pods provide remote 24 hour contact with Facebook, as well as all bodily needs, including food delivery and waste removal (which is then provided to marketers for analysis). 2020 - Facebook Genital Pictures takes pictures of everyone's junk, which was real easy what with everyone in those Pods. Finally, Facebook fulfills its ultimate destiny: showing you (and marketers) everyone you've ever met with no clothes on.

Apple Isn't Going To Buy ARM, Despite The Market Buzz (AAPL, INTC, ARMH)

London's financial markets are apparently abuzz with gossip that Apple might acquire ARM, the leading maker of mobile chips, with extensive trading of the company's shares. The Register has the story.

Given that Apple has an enormous stack of cash, almost $40 billion including short term securities, and an even higher stock price, and given Steve Jobs' penchant for vertical integration, there has been speculation that Apple might go on a shopping spree.

After being burned when it tried to buy AdMob and was beaten by Google, Apple hired a senior M&A guy -- acquisitions had previously been handled by the executive team on an ad-hoc basis -- and speculation increased.

We don't buy it, however, for the following reasons:

  • Apple doesn't make big strategic acquisitions. When Apple decided to get into the portable music business, they didn't buy Archos; when they decided to go into the mobile phone business, they didn't buy Motorola. They built the resources from within, with the occasional small acquisition to integrate talent and specific technologies, PA Semi being the canonical example. Apple did acquire Quattro to go into mobile advertising, but it was a small acquisition and a small team, not a multibillion global company like ARM. 
  • It's not in Apple's DNA to integrate large organizations. Acquisitions fail and succeed by how efficiently the acquired is integrated into the company; not just business synergies but cultural synergy: making sure the key people feel at home and don't leave, making sure the teams with members of both companies go along well. It's a subtle and elusive thing, but it's what matters. Most companies don't know how to do this and fail. A few companies understand this and do it very well. Apple has never done it, and its DNA includes a very unique culture which is geared toward integrating individual hires and small teams, not a whole global organization. Steve Jobs is smart and knows Apple's greatest asset is its culture and its people, and he would not risk endangering it by trying to integrate a large foreign organism.
  • Apple doesn't need the technology. Apple has acquired, and likely will keep acquiring, small chip startups to bring more key technology in-house and wring every possible bit of technology from the silicon it uses by using custom components and not off the shelf ones. But it already has the technology it needs to build its own chips, as evidenced with the A4, that powers the iPad, and the custom silicon inside the so-called Apple 4G's innards.
  • And last but not least: it doesn't make sense. ARM is a standard for chips for the mobile industry. The most intriguing idea is that Apple would kneecap other mobile handset makers by buying the standard and keeping it to itself. There are two things wrong with this idea (a third might be that it could open lawsuits, but we'll defer to more expert opinion on this one). First of all, there are other really good mobile chip makers besides ARM, like Qualcomm. If Apple buys ARM, another company will become the standard. Apple will have spent a lot of money to annoy handset makers for a year. Great. But the biggest reason is that Apple just doesn't do that. They don't crush competitors by acquiring their partners. They crush competitors by out-designing them, out-marketing them and out-selling them, period.

One company that we think has more legs, if one wants to find an acquirer for ARM, is Intel. Mobile is the biggest growth sector, but Intel largely exited that sector because they couldn't maintain the high margins they get for their computer chipsets. Now as the technology behind mobile chips improves, not only are mobile chips companies tapping into this huge market, they're also starting to eat into Intel's core computer chips business. A netbook today likely has an Intel chip; but a tablet tomorrow might have a mobile chip, as the iPad does. This is the classic innovator's dilemma: a big incumbent dismisses a lower-margin, inferior product which starts in a small segment of the market, but as technology and adoption improve the upstarts eat through the incumbent's core business like cancer.

Intel was born in the crucible of the innovator's dilemma: the company famously ditched its core memory chips business and bet itself on the then-emerging microprocessor, and ended up disrupting bigger incumbents. If Intel remembers its history, it will know that it needs to make a big play in the mobile chip sector, and fast

The goats are baaaahk!

here are
Last year, in our quest to minimize our carbon footprint (and keep people on their toes), we turned to an unlikely solution for mowing an overgrown field: goats. More than 200 goats from California Grazing have once again arrived at our Mountain View headquarters where they’ll stay for over a week chomping away on grassy goodness. The cost of bringing in the goats is comparable to hiring lawn mowers for the same job and the green benefits are clear: the goats eliminate mower emissions, reduce noise pollution, restore plant species and fertilize while grazing.

Don’t worry, we’re not going to be in the business of chèvre anytime soon, but in the meantime we’re having a lot of fun watching our new colleagues. Description: The goats are baaaahk! Rating: 4.5 Reviewer: sms ItemReviewed: The goats are baaaahk!

One catechism that came up back the OS was aboriginal announced: how are bodies activity to book from this thing? Google has aloof spelled out its band-aid on the Chromium Blog: The Cloud.

Google has appear a new activity alleged Google Billow Book which is ambience out to “build a press acquaintance that enables any app (web, desktop, or mobile) on any accessory to book to any printer anywhere in the world.” In short, your computer or accessory will acquaint Billow Book what it wants printed, and Billow Book will again accelerate the adapted instructions to your printer. No printer drivers necessary.

Google is accouterment some antecedent affidavit on the activity here. The armpit says that any application, be it built-in or web based, will be able to use Billow Book through APIs (which will acquiesce you to abide book jobs and additionally analysis job status).

Of course, there’s still one big problem: accepting Google Billow Book to absolutely allocution to your printer. Google has two solutions to this. In the continued term, it is proposing that the industry accept new accessible standards about billow printing, and that manufacturers body new printer models to be ‘cloud aware’. In added words, the printer is affiliated to the web and includes software that knows how to acquaint with Google’s servers.

The additional band-aid is for ‘legacy printers’ (which accommodate all printers at this point—even printers with an ethernet or Wifi connection). For these, Google affairs to action software that you install on the PC that the printer is affiliated to. Google is currently architecture this proxy software for Windows and intends to abutment Mac and Linux bottomward the line. You won’t absolutely install the software on your own, either — it will appear with Google Chrome (though it will be off by default). Google additionally hopes that some router manufacturers will alpha including the proxy software in their devices, so that users don’t accept to leave their computers on.
A few key things to note: Google is activity to action its own Billow Book service, but it wants the accepted to be accessible and expects added another casework to bounce up as well. And this isn’t aloof for computers — it could potentially be acclimated for phones, tablets, and any added web-enabled device. Wouldn’t that be nice.
