Yup. Let's also rewind to last summer, when Macworld (via a different author) stated the following:

Apple will release a wearable as soon as the time as right, as soon as it makes sense. As soon as Siri has the intelligence of Google Now. As soon as HomeKit and HealthKit are begging for an interface on our wrists. As soon as multi-day battery life is in the bag.

My, how perspectives change.

It's almost as if they haven't used any of them at all. Especially, ya know, the Apple Watch.

We’ve tested plenty of smartwatches ever since Pebble’s Kickstarter introduced us to the concept of the connected wearable, but what we’ve seen from the likes of Samsung, Motorola, and LG don’t measure up to even the bits Tim Cook has elected to show us. Apple’s vision for Apple Watch is a grandiose one, one much bigger than pushing notifications to your wrist.

Apple Watch is about more than collecting the dozens of things we casually reach for our iPhones to do—check a basketball score, pay for groceries, skip to the next track, or read a message—and putting them within wrist’s reach. Apple isn’t changing the relationship we have with our watches. Rather, it’s embracing the traditionalism of the classic wristwatch to actually limit the time we spend with our iPhones and use technology to connect us to the world around us.___Yup.

Things I am officially tired of hearing about (January 2015 edition):

1. In-depth "reviews" and "comparisons" of products that haven't been announced, let alone released.

2. In-depth analyses about what processor an unreleased phone will or won't use. (Once we can see how said phone actually performs -- with whatever processor it has -- let's talk.)

3. Debates over the latest article to breathlessly explain why Google+ is/was/will always be a ghost town.

4. Alibaba.

5. Complaints (still, two months later) about a developer's audacity to charge five dollars for a new version of his app -- an app that people use for hours every day, that'll receive countless future upgrades and improvements, and that can be used eternally on as many devices as you want.

Well said. One negative experience or even a series of disappointing products in the past doesn't mean a company is eternally incapable of creating good devices.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people make up their minds about a product before it's even released (or before they've seen/used it). It happens both ways, too -- writing something off or deciding it's the best ever based solely on the fact that a certain brand is attached to it.

I will never buy a <company> product.

This is probably the most annoying, willfully ignorant thing I read on a regular basis in the comments of tech news stories. It is just so mind-bogglingly dumb that I cannot wrap my head around an attitude that suggests taking an absolutist stance against buying a company's products, indefinitely.

To this day, my father will not buy any LG products because he holds a permanent grudge against them based on a GoldStar microwave he got in the 1980s. It is flabbergasting. 

Apple is the most common target of these statements, but I see them constantly in reference to other companies, too, usually on the basis of a poor customer service experience or some defect in a product the person purchased.

I've reviewed probably over 40 phones from a dozen manufacturers and never once have I had the serious thought "I would never, ever, under any circumstance buy a phone from this company."

For all the stuff I make fun of on a regular basis, I cannot seriously nail myself on the cross of consumerism and vow to never buy products a particular company makes simply because that company makes them. Because it's silly, it's pointless, and it suggests I can predict what the world will be like ten, five, or even two years from now.

It's not a badge of pride to wear - it's the same terrible attitude that has turned American politics into a farce.___Well said. One negative experience or even a series of disappointing products in the past doesn't mean a company is eternally incapable of creating good devices.

Multicarrier cell phone service from Google?

This whole Google wireless service thing is starting to sound pretty interesting. From the +Wall Street Journal: 

Google’s upcoming wireless service would aim to end subscribers’ reliance on a single carrier, instead giving them the ability to pick the best signal from a variety of sources, people familiar with the plan said.

The service would feature new technology that would hunt through cellular connections provided by Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. and Wi-Fi hotspots, picking whichever offers the best signal to route calls, texts and data, the people said.

Now let's see (a) if/when this actually happens (remember, we've heard rumblings without results before) -- and (b) how much it'll cost if/when it does arrive.

An official response to all the WebView updating hubbub, from Android's lead security engineer.

Following public discussion of vulnerabilities in versions of Webkit last week, I’ve had a number of people ask questions about security of browsers and WebView on Android 4.3 (Jellybean) and earlier. I want to provide an update on what we’re doing and guidance on steps that users and developers can take to be safe, even if your device is not yet running Lollipop. 

Keeping software up to date is one of the greatest challenges in security. Google invests heavily in making sure Android and Chrome are as safe as possible and doing so requires that they be updated very frequently.  With Google’s assistance, Android device manufacturers (OEMs) have been moving rapidly to improve the rate that devices are updated and to ship devices with the most recent versions of Android. We provide patches for the current branch of Android in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP)[https://source.android.com/] and directly provide Android partners with patches for at least the last two major versions of the operating system.  

Improving WebView and browser security is one of the areas where we’ve made the greatest progress.  Android 4.4 (KitKat) allows OEMs to quickly deliver binary updates of WebView provided by Google, and in Android 5.0 (Lollipop), Google delivers these updates directly via Google Play, so OEMs won’t need to do anything.  Until recently we have also provided backports for the version of WebKit that is used by Webview on Android 4.3 and earlier. But WebKit alone is over 5 million lines of code and hundreds of developers are adding thousands of new commits every month, so in some instances applying vulnerability patches to a 2+ year old branch of WebKit required changes to significant portions of the code and was no longer practical to do safely. With the advances in Android 4.4, the number of users that are potentially affected by legacy WebKit security issues is shrinking every day as more and more people upgrade or get new devices.

There are also steps users and developers can take to mitigate the risk of potential exploitation of WebKit vulnerabilities without updating to Lollipop. Using a browser that is updated through Google Play and using applications that follow security best practices by only loading content from trusted sources into WebView will help protect users.

When browsing on any platform, you should make sure to use a browser that provides its own content renderer and is regularly updated. For instance on Android, Chrome [http://goo.gl/elSkZX] or Firefox [http://goo.gl/Q5X6e3] are both great options since they are securely updated through Google Play often: Chrome is supported on Android 4.0 and greater, Firefox supports Android 2.3 and greater. Chrome has been the default browser for all Nexus and Google Play edition devices since 2012 and is pre-installed on many other popular devices (including Galaxy devices from Samsung, the G series from LG, the HTC One series, and the Motorola X and G), so you may already be using it.

Using an updatable browser will protect you from currently known security issues, and since it can be updated in the future it will also protect you against any issues that might be found in the future. It will also allow you to take advantage of new features and capabilities that are being introduced to these browsers. 

If you are an application developer, there are also steps you should take to keep users safe. Application developers should make sure that they are following all security best practices[http://goo.gl/b6a3ta]. In particular, to resolve this issue when using WebView[http://goo.gl/FKeouw], developers should confirm that only trusted content (e.g. loaded from a local source or over HTTPS) is displayed within WebViews in their application.

This whole BlackBerry "platform discrimination" thing is laughably absurd. 

But rather than rant and rave about it here, I'll point you to this razor-sharp takedown by +Phil Nickinson. Couldn't say it better if I tried.

You shouldn't consider the Venue 8 7000 for its cameras. But if you're looking for a standout slate with killer hardware and a commendable user experience -- and you're okay with waiting a while to get Lollipop in your life -- the Venue 8 7000 will give you an exceptional Android experience.

This is definitely not your average device.

So, this company's business is developing software for OEMs to implement on their devices -- and this is the app design they come up with for an Android tablet in 2015?

For shame, MaxxAudio. For shame.

If Microsoft's Android Office apps had come along four years ago, they would have seemed pretty impressive. The problem is that while Microsoft waited, other companies jumped in -- and some of those companies have done an admirable job at filling the void.

Heads-up: If you want an advanced fitness tracking app for your phone and/or Android Wear watch, you can get Runtastic Pro for free today.

Just download the regular version of the app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.runtastic.android), then head into its settings and scroll down to the option labeled "Runtastic." 

Select "Enter promotion code" from the next menu, then enter the code FREE-UBTP-XPTP into the box that appears.

That'll upgrade you to the Pro version of the app, which would normally run you five bucks.

Important update to my story about Android TV and who's responsible for providing updates to devices

While there's still no official Google statement on the matter, a source with close knowledge of the situation tells me that it will, in fact, be up to device manufacturers to provide OS updates with Android TV. That being said, the source notes that in addition to the home launcher, the entire Android TV system UI will be unbundled from the OS and treated as a standalone app -- which means Google would be able to update it via the Play Store independently, without the need for a full OS update.

The unbundling of the system UI is a noteworthy change from what we see with Android-based phones and tablets, and it could go a long way in allowing Google to control the full front-facing user environment of Android TV without any reliance on manufacturers. Remember, though,... more »

The unbundling of the system UI is a noteworthy change from what we see with Android-based phones and tablets, and it could go a long way in allowing Google to control the full front-facing user environment of Android TV without any reliance on manufacturers. Remember, though, that many upgrades -- including system-level feature additions as well as the additions of new APIs and frameworks (which themselves allow for new features and performance enhancements) -- are tied to the core OS and thus would still require full over-the-air OS updates in order to be applied.

Still not clear is what standard, if any, is being established for how long TVs and other Android TV devices will receive full OS upgrades after they launch.

Lots of random CES announcements today, but this quiet bit of news will probably have the most meaningful impact for most of us.

No more mobile zooming wonkiness -- huzzah!

Pinch-zooming pages with fixed position elements now behaves rationally in Chrome 40 for Android

We're shipping a feature called "virtual viewport".  The mental model which I argued for is that a zoomed page will look as if you had held a magnifying glass up to the screen.  Eg. when you pan the viewport sideways, you'll also be panning any top header (no more seeing only the top left of nav bars when zooming!).  Try this comparing Chrome Stable (39) on http://videojs.com (or the desktop version of http://nytimes.com) to Chrome Beta (40).  Essentially we're splitting the notion of "the viewport" into "the layout viewport" (where fixed position items are attached) and "the visual viewport" (what you actually see).

In this regard, Chrome now (mostly) matches IE's behavior instead of doing something kinda like Safari's weird behavior.  Interestingly, we came to the conclusion that this was the right behavior completely independently from the IE team (it was fun to be able to show them a demo when they described their new model to us).  Now we're working together to try to get the CSS specs updated to accommodate it.

Expanded voice control coming to Chrome OS -- nice!

Did you ever wish you could talk to your Chromebook simply when the screen is on and unlocked? Lucky you! Say "Ok Google" in Dev Channel and ask for anything!

Try out the experimental new version of the "Ok Google" experience by toggling the chrome://flags/#enable-hotword-hardware flag. Restart your device, go to Chrome OS Settings and check "Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search" to train your device to respond to the sound of your voice by saying three times "Ok Google".

As expected, all your voice and audio activity will be easily accessible at https://history.google.com/history/audio.
