Android ARM Assembly by Vikram Aggarwal

Today I read an interesting article about Android.
The article is written by the developers Vikram Aggarwal , software engineer at Google.
This article - tutorial consists in a series on learning ARM assembly on Android.
Its subject is "...calling Assembly code from Android applications".
The tutorial contains the necessary source code and details for the reader to understand how it works.
For those who have never used Gas (GNU Assembler), this article is of interest much.
I wonder if there is anyone interested in the Fedora community to write Android applications.
This article can be read here.

Creating folders and documents with gdata module

Today I played with gdata python module.
The problem that I solved it:
creating folders and documents in your Gmail account.
First you need to install gdata module.
In fedora I used:
yum install python-gdata.noarch 
Here are the first lines of source code that creates a folder named test-fedora
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Apr 12 2011, 16:16:18) 
[GCC 4.6.0 20110331 (Red Hat 4.6.0-2)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import gdata.docs.service
>>> my=gdata.docs.service.DocsService()
>>> my.ClientLogin('your-account@gmail.com','your-password')
>>> my.CreateFolder('test-fedora')
I tried to automate the process of creating folders and I used a list and instruction for
>>> folders=['aaa','bbb','ccc']
>>> for f in folders:
...     my.CreateFolder(f)
... 
To create a document to write more lines of code.
This is because there are many types of documents
>>> new_entry = gdata.GDataEntry()
>>> new_entry.title = gdata.atom.Title(text='fedora-test')
>>> category = my._MakeKindCategory(gdata.docs.service.DOCUMENT_LABEL)
>>> new_entry.category.append(category)
>>> created_entry = my.Post(new_entry, '/feeds/documents/private/full')
Here's a simple solution to avoid loss of mail password.
>>> import getpass
>>> username = raw_input('Please enter your username: ')
Please enter your username: user1
>>> password = getpass.getpass()
Password: 
>>> print username
user1
>>> print password
pass1
I hope you will use this
