The more I work and learn with technology, the more I have come to consider the oft-repeated (especially by teachers) requirement for 'training' in new technology to be code for "I don't want to use this." After all, when we consider how much of current technology we have managed to learn without training, the demand for training becomes more and more facetious over time. This post considers the learning involved in the transition from iPhone to Android. " Not surprisingly, all the information I needed was available when I needed it. A quick tour of the HTC Sense interface came with the setup application on the phone. Information about really useful Android apps came to me through a Google search. Even when I was planning to buy the phone, I got all the information I needed by searching through reviews on the internet."
