Seems like while the bezel on the S8 will be smaller than on the S7 it still won't be anything close to Xiaomi's Mi Mix. The extra screen size mostly comes from making the device longer. Personally I'm still a bit old-fashioned in the sense that I believe that the bezel actually serves a purpose, so I'm happy to see that the didn't push the screen fully to the bottom. But who knows - maybe newer devices will convince me of the (nearly) bezel-less phone.

I've said it from the beginning: That whole Pixel-exclusivity discussion was blown waaaay out of proportion. So, no big surprise here, still good to see that Google is slowly opening up the Assistant to other devices.

Google Spaces will be shut down on April 17th, 2017

Well, if you use Google Spaces, it's going away after 11 months of non-use... I used Spaces the first day it launched and that was it. There was no reason to continue to use it. I had hoped that Spaces would turn into Google's Slack competitor, but I guess that I was wrong, at least for now.

Which is really, really shitty as I'm on travel right now but routinely need to connect to some devices at home (which are now all offline without me being able to do anything about it) Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr......

The Verge has done some really interesting digging on the Chip used in Samsungs Chromebook Plus. Turns out the mysterious OP1 SoC that delivers some surprisingly good performance is actually built (and optimized) especially for Chromebooks by Rockchip AND Google. While it is unclear which level of involvement Google really had in its design, the trademark is registered on Google and they seem to be pushing it to other manufacturers.
Also check out the official website for the OP1:

Given that Google is moving Android to the desktop space itself, Jide seems to be looking for a new niche with Singularity, its own take on Microsofts Continuum (and all the similar services that came before it). Good to see them experimenting, personally I still am not convinced this is a concept with much of a future, but my inner nerd would like me to be proven wrong on this ;)

Interesting new project by a bunch of Google devs: Upspin is a distributed (like in no central server for data storage) way to securely (like in end-to-end-encrypted) share files with others. This is NOT a new central service but a set of protocols and a reference implementation that Google has released as open source (and which others can try to set up on their own servers). For further reading check out the project website and the docs there (linked below). Also the discussion on Hacker News is pretty interesting:

As important as cleaning up Android bugs is, there is one important thing missing from most of the reporting on Android security issues: Those bugs are very, very seldom actively exploited. For instance so far there are still no know infections via any of the dozens Stagefright bugs that have been found in the last one and a half years.

This is one much needed improvement for the integration between Android and Chrome OS. Having the files read-only from the Chrome OS side pretty much makes it useless though. Hope this will be fixed before the integration moves to the stable channel, otherwise it will result in lots of user confusion.

Images, videos and audio files from Android apps are now accessible from the Files app in the latest Dev update of Chrome OS.

Think of it as a semi-flattened view of all media files kept tracked by Android. Note that these files are read-only.

I know I'm really late in posting about the latest round of Google Maps updates, but I'd like to use this for a more general remark: After all that controversy about the big redesign the Maps devs lately really have been on a roll. Nearly no week passes without a nifty new feature in Maps that is actually useful. Great to see the speed Maps is moving forward nowadays.

The second preview release for Android Things (Google's new IoT platform - for all of you that already forgot about it ;) ) is out. And it brings some really exciting improvements thanks to the support for machine learning / TensorFlow. Also highly interestingly there is now the concept of user drivers which allows app developers to support extra hardware. (that isn't directly supported by Android Things itself). I knew I should have taken my Pi 3 with me on vacation ;)

The Android Security Bulletin for February is out. The most interesting bug is a critical problem in SurfaceFlinger (which is Android's compositor - basically the thing that draws stuff on your screen). We also get two more Mediaserver bugs and a whole lot of Qualcomm / Nvidia problems fixed. Updates have started to roll out for the usual mix of devices.

Seems like while the bezel on the S8 will be smaller than on the S7 it still won't be anything close to Xiaomi's Mi Mix. The extra screen size mostly comes from making the device longer. Personally I'm still a bit old-fashioned in the sense that I believe that the bezel actually serves a purpose, so I'm happy to see that the didn't push the screen fully to the bottom. But who knows - maybe newer devices will convince me of the (nearly) bezel-less phone.

Great - and pretty detailed - look in what went into the making of LibreOffice 5.3. So much going on that regular users won't directly see.

Another great update for Snapseed (easily one of my favorite apps)

Snapseed’s first update in 2017 started rolling out today. It includes many improvements and a brand new tool: Curves!

Curves gives you precise control over brightness levels and colors to shape the look of your photos. If you are familiar with Curves from desktop applications, you should be able to get started right away. If you are new to Curves, take a look at the many presets that come with the tool to help you stylize your photo.

We’ve also improved the face detection in our Face filter. When Snapseed fails to detect faces, you can now ask it to try harder. In the Text tool, all multiline styles now allow you to choose where to wrap lines. We’ve also improved the grain quality in Black & White.___Another great update for Snapseed (easily one of my favorite apps)

Better late than never.

Open-sourcing Chrome on iOS is available now!

Historically, the code for Chrome for iOS was kept separate from the rest of the Chromium project due to the additional complexity required for the platform. After years of careful refactoring, all of this code is rejoining Chromium and being moved into the open-source repository. We value the open source community and all of our contributors, and we're glad that Chrome for iOS can finally join in.

___Better late than never.

Interesting. I really liked the Robin, so here is hope that we'll see more from Nextbit, soon.

Google just surprisingly dropped a beta for its next maintenance release, Android 7.1.2. Not a lot info about me stuff, but interestingly this one won't be available for the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 anymore (according to the blog post). Security updates are going to continue for those two, though.

Today seems to be leak day. Venturebeat has what are supposed to be the first photos of the new Galaxy S8. Seems like the front is going to be mostly screen as has been rumored before, let's see how this works out. One thing the sticks that sticks out at first sight is the placement of the fingerprint sensor (besides the camera). This seems like a pretty bad idea, to high up there, also people will accidentally tap on the camera instead. A lot.

It's kinda early for Pixel 2 leaks, still: Let's roll with it. According to this report the second generation Pixel is going to - yet again - focus on high-end-specs. This especially goes for the camera (which I still really, really love in the first Pixel btw) but also for other parts like the SoC. Also waterproofing seems to be likely (the lack of which is one of the few real flaws in the current Pixel). Also interestingly the report talks about second, cheaper Pixel "aimed at different markets" - make of that what you want. Where that would leave the rumored Android One device from Google, I don't know. Anyway: Talk all this with a big grain of salt, even if the source is legit there is still lots of things that could change until the release in fall.
