This one feels inevitable, doesn’t it? Apple has one heck of a phone in the iPhone. But that’s all it is — one phone.

Android software is being sprayed across so many handsets that eventually one of the handsets will deliver an experience better than the iPhone. Apple vs Google: The Next 10 Battles To Watch

Google has just launched a service hosting images from LIFE magazine, back to about … forever!

“Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google.”

You can Browse Google LIFE photos by decade.

You can also browse by people, events, culture, and more, or use search terms.

Other entries include Einstein, Monroe, Princess Di, and of course Hitler. (And Anne Frank.) Each item includes the circumstances of the photos and their discovery.
