QuoteEveryone is excited by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and no wonder! Google's "most ambitious release to date" rolls out many new features that look very promising indeed: zero-click NFC sharing (Android Beam), a unified OS for smartphones and tablets, a new UI (with resizable widgets), single motion panoramic camera, face unlock, live effects and so on. And this time it will all be Open Source. All great, but to be honest, what I am really excited about is a less advertised technology called RenderScript, which in ICS takes another significant stride towards maturity. And why does this excite me? Because RenderScript is the API that will soon enough enable GPU Computing) in Android.

Can't wait to run OpenCL apps on my phone!

I wonder if we will have Bitcoin mining phones in the future...
