Danny's talk will conclude with a demo of their Android app. ;)

    Had a great time learning about Samsung's new technology. I can see a number of interesting possibilities even with the device-specific nature of Chord.

    Great opportunity to interact with the Samsung people. We had some specific issues we had been trying to deal with by filing bug reports and through email, with very slow progress. A few minutes of face-to-face moved us way ahead.
