Ice Cream Sandwich

Posted: October 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

I was able to play around with Ice Cream Sandwich and I was impressed with the more polished interface and international support.  Arabic characters are properly joined instead of the disjoined and backwards orientation.

I’m still trying to get alternative IMEs like Korean, Chinese, and whatever else Google has created onto the device.  On a normal gadget, I would simply install these things through the App Store, but the system in the emulator does not have an App Store.


Below here, you can see the older or current rather Android 2.x, and to the right is the latest Android 4.0 ice cream sandwich.

CA Community College Advantage

Posted: August 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

Here’s the scoop: colleges are getting rather expensive with costs for tuition alone around $7000 at a California State University, and $12,000 at an University of California for an undergraduate (bachelor’s) degree.  You can take courses for the first two years at a California Community College for roughly $50 to $100 each term.  Specifically, if you are receiving Federal Financial Aid (which implies US citizenship) and you are a California resident, you qualify for the BOG (Board of Governors) waiver to tuition at a community college.

The first two years, called lower division, typically are the general education type of courses (Segment I and Segment II).  They can also include some courses required for your major, like Statistics, Accounting, and Economics for a business major.  To assess which courses count toward you major, you need to visit:

So if you take the first two years at a community college (4 semesters or 6 quarters), you can save over $35,000 in tuition costs alone.  Many students transfer into a 4-year after completing the general education requirements, then take some courses on the side or in the summer at local community colleges to save costs.
