The Android army of smartphones in the world keeps growing, with the latest number now over 700,000 activations per day according to Andy Rubin, Goolge's head of Android. That's an increase from 550k per day in July, 500k per day in June, and 400k per day in May. Basically, it's a slow and steady growth that's perfectly believable given Android's increase in marketshare this year.
Plus, Andy Rubin announced that over the Christmas weekend, the search giant saw 3.7 million Android activations. The festive statistic was posted on Google+ by Rubin: “There were 3.7M Android activations on 12/24 and 12/25. Congrats team-Android!”
The Mifflin County School District conducted a test of their SKYLERT Service this morning. Through this service you can receive automated phone calls, emails, and text messages for the type of alert notifications you have selected. The school district will be sending Emergency Alert Messages only. Their goal is to use this as a resource in notifying parents\guardians when there is a school closing, early dismissal, or an emergency alert.
