More transparency = good. Personally I would like Google to even go a step further and deliver an easy to access list of all apps that have been sideloaded. Would help with tech support (and for people like me who tend to forget which of the apps on the phone they actually have sideloaded to get it a day or so faster ;) )

Just noticed something interesting about the Android system on the Chromebook Pixel: It's security patch level is August, 5th 2016 so it already seems to have applied all the security fixes that Nexus devices will get next month ;) While this might sound like a bug at first, this is actually possible. Google delivers all the patches to their partners one month before they are released on Nexus devices. Still I guess this is an oversight which won't happen again in the future. (a coordinated release with a clear schedule is better for everyone)

A little #PokemonGO morning fun. 30 minutes. 58.000 XP
Not perfect yet - but getting there. Guess the theoretical limit is somewhere between 65.000 and 70.000 in that time frame (unless there is a trick I'm not aware of right now ;) ).
How do you replicate this yourself? Actually it is quite "easy" (well you still have to run a lot to prepare for it). The 58.000 XP consist of 55 Pokemon evolves all while using a Lucky Egg to double XP points (which works for 30 minutes). The 3.000 extra points are from 3 evolves that resulted into newly discovered Pokemons. Unfortunately I ran out of evolvable Pokemons 2:30 minutes before the end of the time period (I really didn't think it would be possible to fit in that many). So I guess you could get to 60 evolves actually. As this i limited by the time the pretty lengthy evolve animation takes I doubt you could do a lot... more »

(especially as I chose a time where the servers worked nearly flawless)
Most of those (more than a third) evolves were Pidgys - those are very common (at least here in Vienna) and also they are the cheapest to evolve (12 candys)___

The whole sad situation in regards to Android security updates in one sentence
While it is great to see that at least some major vendors try to follow Google's security update schedule the current situation still leaves a lot to be desired. That sentence in the LG security bulletin basically subverts the whole rest cause as a consumer you just don't know what you will get. Samsung is even worse btw, they don't even list models or any fixed time frame. Their wording is:
While we are doing our best to deliver the security patches as soon as possible to all applicable models, delivery time of security patches may vary depending on the regions and models.
And with "applicable models" they mean "major flagship models". So anything besides the S- and Notes-series doesn't even have that vague form of guarantee.

Aaaaaand Google has just released its latest Android Security bulletin (or actually: two, read on). This round fixes yet more critical bugs in - you would have never guessed - the mediaserver. Also a critical issue in OpenSSL / BoringSSL (Google's own fork) has been fixed. Most curiously this round actually consists two full sets of security fixes. No clue why Google chose to do it that way but adding to the issues that bring the patch level to 2016-07-01 there are whole bunch of extra fixes that constitute patch level 2016-07-05... (including more critical bugs). Which also means: Devices that are getting updates to 2016-07-01 will not have all the necessary critical fixes.
Anyway: Nexus users are good as usual, updates have started to roll out and new factory images have been published.

Edit After reading the bulletin more closely the mystery gets a bit less mysterious: The first part are bugs that are general issues in Android (read: they affect basically every manufacturer) while the others are device specific bugs (which might only be of interest to some other manufacturers - think bugs in drivers from Nvidia, Qualcomm)___

This pretty much is in line with what I was suspecting with the recent "Google phone" rumors. The report got it wrong and this is just the next, more Google controlled iteration of the Nexus line. Also: No camera bump...

Not sure if I should be surprised but the amount of BS articles (and especially really, really wrong headlines) that have been published in the last few days really wants me to bang my head on the table. Seriously: That encryption issue is mostly interesting because we finally get more insight in how the Android disk encryption actually works. Is it perfect? No. But it definitely is not a "the sky is falling" situation as most news outlets want to put it. The current issue is a simple bug. On one SoC. That has been fixed. Months ago. So like with every other security bug the simple advice is: Get a phone that actually has a proper update record.
If you want to have more insight: Read the original blog post, it is actually pretty interesting:

The Google Play Early Access Program is now available for everyone. This brings a central place for all available preview apps. Also there is a new tab where you can see which beta apps you actually have installed.

This sounds pretty useful, but in the end it all boils down to how well Google's categorization will work (especially if you use multiple languages)

Personally, I can't imagine why I would use HTC Sense on my phone. Still: Choice is good, so: Congrats to HTC!

So this is Amazon's new masterplan to get a foot into Android? Hmmmm... Somehow I have the feeling that lots of those devices will be get a new firmware pretty immediately after delivery to the consumers ;)
(btw: This seems to be the story that The Information has been writing about back in January. And as expected back then they simply misunderstood what it all is about - or how Android actually works: https://plus.google.com/+AndreasProschofsky/posts/htrhvAJNTi6)

Another one of those sites that might make some people freak out, but personally I think this is a big step forward in regards to transparency.

Will be interesting to see what developers will build based on the new Awareness API.

The Google Awareness API is available to all developers through Google Play services!

The new Google Awareness APIs enable your apps to intelligently react to user context using 7 different types of context—including location, weather, user activity, and nearby beacons. Using snapshots and fences, your app can better understand your users’ current situations, and use this information to provide optimized and customized experiences with minimal impact on system resources.___Will be interesting to see what developers will build based on the new Awareness API.
