anethema writes "iPhone hacker planetbeing, from the iPhone Dev Team, has successfully ported the Android OS over to the iPhone. He is doing it on a first-generation iPhone, but others may be possible. The port is pretty functional, with data, voice, and many apps working, although it is running a bit sluggish and buggy at the moment. There appears to be much work left."

    Perhaps as an angry Apple hater, you missed the part where I was ridiculing Apple fanbois.

    The 3GS has 256Mb, but the 2G and 3G do only have 128Mb.

    This will be nice even if only for google's turn by turn app. I love my iPhone, but I don;t love TomTom's ludicrous price for their app.

    Tip to moderators. This is a joke. Not sure why this is modded insightful.

    LS3, LS7, or LS9?

    LS7 makes 505 horsepower, 475 ft-lbs of torque while weighing in under 400 pounds as an all-aluminum V8.

    LS9 makes 620 horsepower, 595 ft-lbs of torque while weighing in under 480 pounds.

    LS3 makes 424 horsepower, 418 ft-lbs of torque, while weighing in around 380 pounds.

    The LFA's engine makes 560 horsepower (impressive) and 354 ft-lbs of torque. (Piss poor.)

    Anybody with half an understanding in vehicular engineering knows that a broad powerband with an earlier onset of torque offers greater performance than high RPM with zero torque. Case in point, the Lexus LFA only ran a 7:30 around the Nurburgring, while both the Corvette Z06 and ZR-1 ran a 7:42 and 7:26 respectively. Both Corvettes were running on run-flat tires with hard tread, while the LFA's time was achieved on non-road-legal racing tires, according to several sources around the 'net. (Google is your friend.) Now quit fanboying over a relatively mediocre car. There's a reason that the quickest car to ever lap Top Gear's track uses the small-block Chevrolet V8. (Ultima GTR ran a 1:12.8 around the Top Gear track. The next fastest car was the Koenigsegg CXX, running a 1:17.6. The Lexus LFA is significantly slower than the CCX. The engine requires constant, high-dollar maintenance, and is still not nearly as good as a performer as the LSx series of engines, stock or modified.)

    Next time you choose to fanboy, at least come bringing some facts.
