Poll: Who makes the best Android phones?

Almost everyone is jumping into the Android craze and it has done a lot of wonders for many manufacturers. I would even hazard an opinion that Android significantly propelled some handset brands to the level of success they now have. Some do it right, while others still have to work harder.

Is Social Media saving Radio?

Is Social Media saving Radio? Or, is it the other way around? I don’t regularly listen to radio nor watch TV and the only time I tune in is when I’m driving. For some time now, I’ve noticed that both AM and FM radio channels have actually embraced social media — specifically Facebook, Twitter and UStream.

Flight Simulation on Google Earth

I know this is a little bit of old news actually but I recently re-installed a copy of Google Earth on my desktop PC and went straight ahead to the Flight Simulation mode to test out how accurate the maps and terrains are.

If you haven’t seen this, go ahead and download Google Earth here. Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, the ocean and even galaxies in outer space (just go to Tools -> Flight Simulation). It’s really a fun way of navigating thru the maps.

Here’s a video capture of the flight simulation via Google Earth I saw the other day:

There are also other software that does similar things (in fact, a whole lot better in terms of detail). One of them is the Microsoft Flight Simulator X (or FSX) which you can download here.

Of course, nothing beats the real thing — a flight simulation where you’re inside a mock-up cockpit and you can see the terrain for the whole 180 degrees. Have not tried this one but would sure love to experience it some day (minus the headaches and the nausea of course).

The closest I think I’ve done this is with Ford when they demoed a simulation during our visit to the Bangkok Motor Show last March.

For those who are jus as curious as me, the flight simulation on Google Earth and Microsoft Flight Simulator would do just fine.

Disclosure: This entry is a sponsored article for Fly Away Simulation. You cna check and download the simulations here.
