The other day I was told about a friend’s kid who was mugged at school (and a pretty good one) for his sneakers and cell phone. You hear about people getting hit by drunk drivers or see endless shows on murders and forensics on TV.

What can stop all this violence and tragedy? IRONMAN? Try the Israeli Military.

I’ve always wanted one and now it turns out that smart clothing isn’t so far away. Think about all the worry that would be done away with crossing a street, wandering down a dark alley… And it goes beyond defensive applications. Similar to hybrid cars, all your movements will be converted into power and the jogging type suit can discharge its power at any time, creating a shell of electricity and forming a personal forcefield to keep you safe.

DailyTech has been reporting on Google’s meteoric rise in smartphone market share for quite some time now, but we didn’t expect to hear the numbers that are coming from the NPD Group today with regards to Android’s place in the hot sector. NPD says that unit sales for Android-based devices bolted past Apple iPhone devices for the first quarter in the U.S.
According to NPD, Android-based devices accounted for 28 percent of the smartphone market while smartphones running Apple’siPhone OS garnered just 21 percent of the market. Both, however, were well behind RIM which still commands 36 percent of the market.
