Today I'm sharing you a working code on how to get the user's current location in Android. There are many popular apps using this feature such as Google Maps and Facebook. Remember when you checked in a place?
Knowing exactly where your users are located is really cool, but you always have to let them know you are doing it. Asking permission to get user's location is an ethical way.
One advantage of getting user's current location is customizing their experience, just like what Twitter does. If you let twitter know your location, it will show top trends or news near you, how cool is that?

How To Get A Job In Tech? Well, I currently have a job in the IT industry but not in these big and amazing companies such as Google, Apple and Facebook. Honestly, I've been dreaming of getting a job at Google. Haha! I choose Google because I love their products such as GMail, Google Docs, Android, Search Engine and many others even though there are some ads, for me it's just fine and natural. It enable me to enjoy great technologies free. :)
I wondered how to get at job in these awesome companies. So I thank this info-graphic for giving me some idea. Haha! Let's see:

I thought Google and Apple are in conflict all of the time. I thought they hate each other so much because of Google Android and Apple iOS competition. But I was wrong. It is amazing for me to see that they treat each other as a friend. Vic Gundotra, the man behind Google Plus and also a Google Android Evangelist and Steve Jobs, the former Apple CEO and now its Chairman, seemed close to each other.
I think this is the real logo. :))
Here's the actual story, When Apple Called Google:
One Sunday morning, January 6th, 2008 I was attending religious services when my cell phone vibrated. As discreetly as possible, I checked the phone and noticed that my phone said "Caller ID unknown". I choose to ignore.
After services, as I was walking to my car with my family, I checked my cell phone messages. The message left was from Steve Jobs. "Vic, can you call me at home? I have something urgent to discuss" it said.
Before I even reached my car, I called Steve Jobs back. I was responsible for all mobile applications at Google, and in that role, had regular dealings with Steve. It was one of the perks of the job.
"Hey Steve - this is Vic", I said. "I'm sorry I didn't answer your call earlier. I was in religious services, and the caller ID said unknown, so I didn't pick up".
Steve laughed. He said, "Vic, unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up during services".
I laughed nervously. After all, while it was customary for Steve to call during the week upset about something, it was unusual for him to call me on Sunday and ask me to call his home. I wondered what was so important?
"So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I've already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow" said Steve.
"I've been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I'm not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn't have the right yellow gradient. It's just wrong and I'm going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?"
Of course this was okay with me. A few minutes later on that Sunday I received an email from Steve with the subject "Icon Ambulance". The email directed me to work with Greg Christie to fix the icon.
Since I was 11 years old and fell in love with an Apple II, I have dozens of stories to tell about Apple products. They have been a part of my life for decades. Even when I worked for 15 years for Bill Gates at Microsoft, I had a huge admiration for Steve and what Apple had produced.
But in the end, when I think about leadership, passion and attention to detail, I think back to the call I received from Steve Jobs on a Sunday morning in January. It was a lesson I'll never forget. CEOs should care about details. Even shades of yellow. On a Sunday.
To one of the greatest leaders I've ever met, my prayers and hopes are with you Steve.

Hi there! Well, I don't have much posts few weeks ago since I'm kinda busy working on a project. I got good news and not-so-bad news, haha! This past few weeks, I've been working on an Android application which makes me so happy (though at first, kinda stressed, since I'm a beginner on this). Yes, it has been my dream to be a Java programmer since college. I can't believe that now, one of my dreams is coming true (Since Android is Java based).
There's more :)
