Apps & utilities

Finally got around to uploading the Android apps & Linux utilities which have accumulated over the years. Manely, the microphone monitoring app & the CPU Usage app are necessary for survival on Android.

A lot of small utilities build up over a lifetime of programming. Some of them were for technologies that no longer exist, like a utility for recovering files from a damaged CD-R or a utility for viewing analog TV.

For a long time, the Goog was good at buying out every startup & providing every utility you could possibly need. There weren't a lot of functions a phone could possibly do, which the Goog didn't already provide in the giant settings menu for everyone in the world. We were all equal.

That's started ending, as they've become more profit driven & the mane driver of innovation, Steve Jobless hasn't been around. Maps no longer allow offline viewing. The Play store charges $25 to start uploading. Adsense is no longer pure text or diffused banners, but giant bright red banners filling the entire window & making apps look horrible. It might be the return to the age when writing a program could give you power that no-one else had.

It's definitely a return to the age of not having any money. When you don't have any money, pure software & game programming gets a lot more attractive than robotics & UAV's.
