    • What scares me is that there are moral fashions too.
      They’re just as arbitrary, and just as invisible to most people.
      But they’re much more dangerous.
      Fashion is mistaken for good design;
      moral fashion is mistaken for good.
      Dressing oddly gets you laughed at. Violating
      moral fashions can get you fired, ostracized, imprisoned, or
      even killed.

    • Developers have full access to the same framework APIs used by the core
      applications. The application architecture is designed to simplify the reuse
      of components; any application can publish its capabilities and any other
      application may then make use of those capabilities (subject to security
      constraints enforced by the framework). This same mechanism allows components
      to be replaced by the user.
    • Android includes a set of core libraries that provides most of
      the functionality available in the core libraries of the Java programming
      language.

      Every Android application runs in its own process, with its own instance of
      the Dalvik virtual machine. Dalvik has been written so that a device can run
      multiple VMs efficiently. The Dalvik VM executes files in the Dalvik
      Executable (.dex) format which is optimized for minimal memory
      footprint. The VM is register-based, and runs classes
      compiled by a Java language compiler that have been transformed into the .dex
      format by the included “dx” tool.

      The Dalvik VM relies on the Linux kernel for underlying functionality such
      as threading and low-level memory management.
