AJ Durling294This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302

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. For maximum security when rendering content from the open web, consider providing your own renderer on Android 4.3 and earlier so that you can keep it up to date with the latest security patches.___An official response to all the WebView updating hubbub, from Android's lead security engineer.

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.

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.

Why?

I'm struggling to understand the logic behind the latest Google+ UI change: having two notification buttons that do the same thing in slightly different ways right on top of each other.

I'm holding onto hope that this is part of some broader plan -- maybe just the first step in an ongoing transition? -- because as it stands now, it sure seems silly.

I've been playing around with this for a little while. It is not your typical Android launcher -- and it is absolutely worth checking out.

Introducing Action Launcher 3

An entirely new take on Action Launcher. This release is both a complete re-write and and re-design. It takes everything people really loved about Action Launcher in the past, mixes it with Google Now Launcher, and infuses it with Material Design.

The Quickdrawer, Covers and Shutters are all better than ever. And the new Quicktheme feature, which extracts the colors from your wallpaper so you can theme items on your layout, adds a whole new category of customization.

The update is currently rolling out to the Play Store now! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.actionlauncher.playstore___I've been playing around with this for a little while. It is not your typical Android launcher -- and it is absolutely worth checking out.

This approach makes a lot of sense to me. Good things ahead from +Chris Lacy​​. I'll happily pay to use this new app and support his efforts.

Action Launcher 3 will release soon. It will be a paid upgrade.

Here's how it will work:
1). On release day (TBC), the existing Action Launcher Play Store entry (com.actionlauncher.playstore) will be upgraded to the new app, Action Launcher 3.
2). Also on this day, I will re-release Action Launcher 2 as a new app in the Play Store (com.actionlauncher.holoedition.playstore). This app will be the exact same version of Action Launcher 2 as is currently in the Play Store today.
3). Action Launcher Pro will only work with Action Launcher 2. People who bought Action Launcher Pro previously can still use all the functionality they paid for. You just have to install a different app to access it.

I realize I risk putting a few people offside by the decision to charge (full price) for Action Launcher 3's functionality, so please allow me to explain my thinking here with this mini-FAQ which will hopefully address the majority of questions people might have.

"Why is Action Launcher 3 a paid upgrade? Why aren't you releasing it as a free update like all other apps do?"
The answer is simple: Action Launcher 3 isn't a "app X gets an update for Material Design" release. In fact, it's not an update at all. It's an entirely new version. It is a total re-imagining. It is both a complete re-design and a complete re-write. Every feature from Action Launcher 2 that has been brought over has been rethought and polished. It has a headline feature new not just for Action Launcher, but all launchers. It is the culmination of many months of effort.

Considering the vast majority of Action Launcher 2 sales occurred over a year ago, and I make my living selling my apps, it's very tough to justify from a business perspective giving all this hard work away for free in an update. I feel very happy with how many updates Action Launcher 2 received over the previous 2 years (11 major updates, >100 in total), as well as the value for money Action Launcher Pro users have received for their $2-$4 purchase. But charging for Action Launcher 3 is the right move to ensure the product has the opportunity to grow as I want it to going forward.

"No seriously. I already bought Action Launcher Pro! You're telling me I have to pay again?!?"
Here's the good news: the app you previously bought, as well as all its previous functionality, will still available for you to use. And it works as well or better than the day you bought it. The only difference will be, this app has been renamed to Action Launcher 2: Holo Edition, and requires a separate install. If you want to use this version of Action Launcher, please feel free to do so. But yes, if you want to use Action Launcher 3's premium features, I am asking that you buy those features.

"You're being greedy charging for this upgrade. You posted recently that Action Launcher Pro had sold 100k copies!"
I'm immensely grateful to everyone who has bought the app to this point. But as I said above, the majority of those sales happened over a year ago. It would have been very tough for me to justify the months and months of Action Launcher 3 development time if I wasn't going to charge people for the upgrade. I hope/think once most people see/use Action Launcher 3, they will be very happy I spent this time developing it, and accept the decision to charge for it.

"What other options did you consider before deciding to charge for Action Launcher 3's upgrade?"
Pretty much everything I could think of. I almost went with an annual subscription, but I balked here because I had strong doubts the market at large would accept it.

"Will Action Launcher 3 have a free version to try out?"
Yes, Action Launcher 3 can be installed and trialled in a time-unlimited manner. Unlocking the premium features occurs via an in-app purchase.

"I get that you are charging for the upgrade, but why not release the new app as a separate app?"
The main reasons are:
* SEO. There are a lot of web articles that link to com.actionlauncher.playstore, and I want people following these articles to be taken to the best possible version of the app (Action Launcher 3).
* Action Launcher currently has a 6 figure active install count, and I want all of these users to have the latest version pushed to their device when it becomes available.

"What about the alpha/beta features in Action Launcher 2? Will you at least finish those?"
Sorry, but no plans to do this. Generally speaking, those features were labelled alpha/beta or put in Labs for a reason.

"You owe it to Action Launcher 2 customers to at least fix all the bugs!"
This depends entirely on how many Pro users keep using Action Launcher 2 once Action Launcher 3 releases. If as I suspect/hope, the vast majority transition to Action Launcher 3, it's tough to justify my spending the time on software rarely being used anymore, when instead that time could be spent making Action Launcher 3 better. There are a few bugs in Action Launcher 2 I'm not thrilled about. A few are AOSP bugs, but most are my fault. And to my knowledge, all are fixed in Action Launcher 3.

(For what it's worth, it's rarely as simple as taking a fix from Action Launcher 3 and bringing it to Action Launcher 2. That's kind of like taking a piece from one jigsaw puzzle and trying to make it fit in a different jigsaw puzzle (again, Action Launcher 3 is a complete rewrite)).

"I bought Action Launcher Pro recently! I want my money back!"
If you bought Action Launcher Pro in the last 30 days and find yourself wanting to refund this purchase in light of this news, please do the following: buy the Action Launcher 3 Plus in-app purchase when it releases. Make sure you use the same Google Account used to purchase Action Launcher Pro. Then email support@digitalashes.com with a subject of "Action Launcher 2 Refund". Once I verify that you have purchased the new upgrade in Action Launcher 3, I will refund the Action Launcher Pro purchase (be aware this won't happen instantly, but I will get to it assuming these steps are followed).

"Why are you telling us this now?"
I appreciate this is not a normal course of action, and I expect the idea will take a bit of getting used to for some. My hope is that by informing everyone about the decision and why I have made it ahead of time, people will have had time to process it by the time Action Launcher 3 releases. Hopefully on release day, the topic of discussion can (mostly) be the quality of the app itself and what it brings to the table, rather than pricing model of it.

"Are all features that are present in Action Launcher 2 present in Action Launcher 3?"
No, there have been features cut. I may bring some/most/all features back at some point, but the goal with Action Launcher 3 was to make the best experience possible, and if that means a few features that I tried in the past but never quite clicked are cut, then so I think that’s fair. When you see Action Launcher 3, hopefully it will make sense why certain features were cut.

"Can you tell us what is in Action Launcher 3?"
It contains the best features of Action Launcher 2, some great features of Google Now Launcher, and a new headline feature I'm immensely proud of.

"When is Action Launcher 3 releasing?"
As soon as it's ready to go. I can't be more specific, because I just don't know when I'll have all the bugs done. I've got 10 to go as of writing. Hopefully no more appear before launch.

”You know what, this is kind of like the way I buy a new Call of Duty every year. Or that fact that my having bought Captain America 1 on Blu-ray doesn’t entitle me to a free copy of Captain America 2. I was mad reading the headline of this post, but you've convinced me, and I'm actually fine with this move!”
Terrific! Thanks for your understanding!

"I've read all this, but I still think this is wrong. There's no way I'm paying for an upgrade."
I'm sorry you feel that way, but that is of course your right. Hopefully you'll check out the free component of Action Launcher 3 when it releases all the same.

To sum up, charging for Action Launcher 3's premium features will help ensure ongoing Action Launcher development remains a viable business proposition going forward. While there will no doubt be some Action Launcher Pro customers who remain upset at this decision, given making it will result in a far higher quality app in the long run, it is a decision I hope most will agree is the right one.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Now it's back to work for me so I can get this app to you all ASAP.___This approach makes a lot of sense to me. Good things ahead from +Chris Lacy​​. I'll happily pay to use this new app and support his efforts.
