Also, for those who were born after 1995, you will get a glimpse of the “old world”. Don’t be surprised to see horse and cart in the streets, rotary dial phones, and soft serve ice cream.
For those who have the European version of the Samsung Galaxy Note (N7000), here is a simple guide to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3) firmware.

Google’s social network finally takes shape as Google+ and looking back at Google Wave and buzz we are happy to see that Google had its homework well done.
