Don't forget! Next week, around this time, ANDROID MANIA!
We'll also have time for talks!
- Andrew Stiegmann talks on security on the Android device and...of
course...how to get rid of it.
- Lief Ryge talks about http://www.servalproject.org
- We'll also have someone talking about cyanogen mod.
And if anyone else would like to talk, let me know!
