Android O is going to shame apps that use too much battery. Good, but let's see if that actually works. Lots of misbehaving apps successfully mask their behavior behind other app / services (mostly Google Play Services).

BREAKING: Newer top SoCs are faster than their predecessors! ;) Seriously, I think the whole tech media needs to stop to be so obsessed about benchmarks. Sure, they are kinda entertaining but at the level that we are right now there are other factors that are more important for a devices perceived performance (and in the end that's all that counts)

Seems like the S8 will be quite a bit more expensive than the S7 - at least in Europe. +100 Euros for both models... No real surprise though given the current USD / EUR exchange rate.

Honestly: Google's slow beta process is kinda annoying. The first Android 7.1.2 beta was released at the end of January. So those users who contribute back to Android via testing have already missed two security updates now. I know, Google isn't promising anything in that regard to beta users, still this is a pretty sub-optimal situation.

March updates for Pixel and Nexus devices are here and with it the monthly security bulletin [1]. Instead of going into the boring details, let's play a guessing game instead: Which security company is going to make a huge fuzz out of one of the bugs they discovered and which is listed in this months bulletin? (Which after that predictably will make the monthly Android scare round through all the news websites). My money is on Trend Micro as they are credited for discovering no less than eight (!) critical vulnerabilities. Let's wait a few a days and find out if I'm right ;)

Once again I wholeheartedly agree with +David Ruddock especially about why Google has to do the Pixel push and why it has to be a premium device:
Samsung actively presents a threat to Android's diversity, and Google must step in to stem the bleeding of an increasingly unprofitable device ecosystem.

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.

Seems like Google just made it waaaaay easier to purchase stuff in other countries' Google Stores (you will still need a valid shipping address in that country, but with services like Borderlinx this is more or less trivial)

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 the current prompts are kept really vague I welcome this change. (though to be honest I never had a problem in making sure that a authorization prompt was really initiated by me...)

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:
