My idiots of the year award almost certainly will go to Netflix and Go Daddy, which tarnished their brands through nothing more than sheer stupidity (there are still five days in the month for your organization to royally screw up and claim the honor). Both companies tried to step back from the brink, only to watch tens of thousands of customers fly over the edge into the “frak you” abyss. I can’t decide which company’s actions is stupider; Go Daddy’s idiocy is more recent, and the damage still unfolds.

Even though it’s only got one Android device in its roster so far, wireless network operator Sprint today announced that it is turning over its network and product services to Android developers through the Sprint Developer Web site’s new Android section.

With the Android 1.5 “Donut” SDK update, Android developers gained access to the CDMA telephony stack, where previously only the GSM stack was supported. So now that support for Sprint’s wireless network protocol is built into Android, a Sprint developer program will help software developers exploit the “Now Network” and its strengths.
