TAV 120: GoogleBot Dumps iPhone for Android

googlebot-dumps-iphone

Lots of good tidbits this week in Android news. T-Mobile’s Binge On program is gathering steam and support from video steaming services, which will change the face of mobile entertainment. Also, Google is finally dropping the antiquated Safari in iPhone for Chrome in Android as it’s user agent string when testing websites. It is clear that Apple provides web browser support as a convenience, not really as a pioneer. This is a change that should have happened long ago.
