FreeYourAndroid Glasgow Meetup in Two Days

Not too long ago, we highlighted the launch of FreeYourAndroid. For those who don’t remember, FYA was created by the folks at VillainROM (namely XDA Recognized Developer nprussell and Developer Admin pulser_g2) in the hopes of delivering structured information to help noobs and seasoned veterans alike.

Naturally, FYA has found great success in its mission, amassing a rather large following in the process. And how do they intend on rewarding that following? By having a meetup, of course! As its name implies, the event will be in Glasgow on May 25, 2012. It will run from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM, local time, and will be held in the Piper on the Square. In the words of VillianROM and FreeYourAndroid community member and event organizer Gary Weldon:

It seems rather strange that the Glasgow Android meetup started out as a chance for 6-8 Android Fans to meet up in the Glasgow City Centre for a few drinks and Android related banter considering where we are now.

Planned from scratch by Gary Weldon (@UbuntuBhoy) and born out of a love for socialising and all things Android, the Android Glasgow meetup is now considered an event which looks to be attended by somewhere between 30 and 50 people.

Now officially hosted by Android websites Free Your Android and Land of Droid, the Glasgow Android Meetup has support from a number of major OEM brands, Mobile Networks and Retailers alike.

Those interested should check out the event’s official website, and follow their Google+ and Twitter pages. While they’re currently at-capacity, you can still stay in the loop by visiting the aforementioned links. For those lucky enough to attend, there will be cool swag given away such as a number of XDA-Developers T-Shirts!

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
