Big Android BBQ7,792The 2015 Meat & Greet will take place on the Cherry Blossom paddle boat embarking from Alexandria, Virginia. We will begin the evening with a delicious, smoked BABBQ-style dinner prepared by our pit-master Ray Walters afterwards we will depart from the USPTO via chartered buses to the Alexandria waterfront. The 3-hour cruise will tour up the Potomac River from Historic Old Town Alexandria, to the DC Tidal Basin and back (3 hour charter). The BAMG is a perfect opportunity to network with fellow DC developers as well as our sponsors. Find a new partner for that next project you want to tackle, or land that new job you’ve been looking for -- or just relax and enjoy the ride, view of the Cherry Blossoms. The return trip will be capped off with an evening fireworks display (weather-permitting). A full, open bar and light snacks will be included in the cost of your reasonably priced ticket.BAMG Cherry Blossom Riverboat Cruise2015-04-04 16:00:0045

Derek Ross1,210,673*The original Android Hangout Show returns!* Hi. I was the first guy on Google+ to start doing live Hangout Shows for Android news and discussion way back during the Hangouts on Air beta days. My team and I ran a successful Android related Hangout show for for 74 weeks in a row before our hiatus. Our show was watched and listed to by thousands every week via Google+, YouTube, and various Podcast platforms. *The band is getting back together...* ...or at least the lead singer. I've come to realize that the shows offered today just don't cut it. They're not professional. They're boring. They don't offer any value such as show guests or giveaways. They're just not what my team used to provide and it angers me. I'm going to try my best to change that for you guys. I'm tentatively going to relaunch our Android on Air show next month. The time and date are subject to change pending renovations to my office. If everything can be completed by then, I'll be back in business providing you with quality HoA Android goodness.The original Android Hangout Show returns!2014-06-06 03:00:0099

The OnePlus 2 does not have NFC, does not have Qi charging, and does not have Quick Charge 2.0 or something similar. This is your "2016 flagship killer."

I guess you won't be using Android Pay, Android Beam, wirelessly charge your phone, or quickly charge your phone, like every other 2015 or 2016 flagship.

Edit: I have confirmed all 3 with OnePlus.

Android M Developer Preview Delayed

Sad trombone. Those of you looking to test the latest developer preview for Android M will have to wait a bit longer. The good news, Google wants Preview 3 to be near final release.

Seeing as Preview 2 included #NoDoze  and not #Doze  for myself and at least one other individual (probably more), I'll be happy to wait for a less bug filled release.

Masque Watch Face by +Alex Pasquarella

I've been using this watch face off and one for a while now. It's simple, beautiful, and has just the right amount of information at your fingertips. The watchface is free, but you can enter our contest for a chance to win a premium code (or just buy premium yourself if you happen to enjoy the faces and options).

I'm hoping for single tap functionality on those info circles once the next wear update hits. 

Enjoy!

Chrome will soon "discard" tabs to help save your precious RAM!

It's no secret that Chrome is a memory hog. An upcoming version could fix that by "discarding" tabs when they're no longer in use. You'll be able to recover them once they become active.

As we speak, the chromium team is adding tab discarding to Windows and Mac OS platforms in the latest chromium build. Linux will follow shortly after. This feature enables least interesting tabs to get automatically discarded when system memory is running low. Discarded tabs are still visible on the tab strip and get reloaded when clicked on.

You can follow the work in progress by enabling the experimental flag named "Tab Discarding" at chrome://flags/#enable-tab-discarding.
Then check out chrome://discards too see all your tabs sorted from most interesting to least interesting. You can even discard one by yourself now ;)

For info, Chrome OS has already this feature.

Source: https://codereview.chromium.org/1249693002___Chrome will soon "discard" tabs to help save your precious RAM!

It's no secret that Chrome is a memory hog. An upcoming version could fix that by "discarding" tabs when they're no longer in use. You'll be able to recover them once they become active.

Auto Backup for App data is one of the best features of Android M

There's a major catch here though. It's only useful if app developers update their apps to use the latest API level. If applications are not updated, this feature is useless. I'm hoping we'll see this feature in many popular apps and games, but I wouldn't bet on seeing this being "standard" for a long time.

I've been playing with the prerelease Hangouts 4.0 for a while. I'm guessing we won't see this become a public release for a couple weeks or more. It's still pretty buggy, such as the FAB disappearing or extreme lag. The Hangouts team might take a bunch of heat from time to time, but I want them to take all the time they need to turn this app into a work of art. It's looking great so far. Good luck squashing those bugs.

We need the Moto X to succeed

It's not a major secret that the US wireless phone industry is widely controlled by the major carriers here. From bloatware, to slow updates, to availability, everything done to carrier branded devices here in the US just plain sucks.

There is however, a better option, and that's unlocked phones sold directly to the consumer from the manufacturer. It's not done very often and when it is, there's often little success, because old habits die hard. The vast majority of consumers buy smartphones from their carrier's website or their carrier's storefront.

Chinese OEMs such as Huawei and others are trying to break into the US market by selling unlocked phones online, without carrier acknowledgement. However, the average consumer off the street has no clue who these companies are and we need this to change. These companies make great hardware too. It's a shame.

Motorola could help set a precedent here. Motorola is a well known brand and they're launching a phone here in the US that's unlocked, affordable, and carries the flagship moniker. We need this direct-to-consumer approach to take off. We need people to realize it's okay to buy a smartphone online.

I'm excited for this method to take off not only for unlocked phones without carriers muddying the waters, but for even more options. We all know what a Samsung phone or HTC phone looks like. We're very familiar with Motorola, LG, and Sony. I'm ready to see Huawei, OPPO, ZTE, and Xiaomi break into the US market and offer us even more choices.

So, I agree +Kellen Barranger. I hope that +Motorola Mobility sells more phones through Moto Maker than they could have ever imagined. The price is right. The design is right. The Google experience is right. This phone should be on everyone's radar.___

The OnePlus 2 is now officially a thing, or at least it will be come August 11 when you can get one for a 64GB version of $389 and have your choice of 5 different backs cover materials.

Google+ and YouTube have announced major changes today

Today's news surrounding the upcoming changing to Google+ could be seen as cause for concern, but myself and many other users of the platform aren't concerned for the future of Google+. I look at today's news as a positive. We've seen many features graduate from Google+ over the last few years, including Hangouts and recently Google Photos. These products started as bundled services, which were nice for the integration, but ultimately it's best to have a more streamlined approach to your core product or service. Breaking these services out and away from Google+ also means that they can grow without the confines of Google+ and offer even more capabilities to end users.

Breaking these services out and away from Google+ also means that they can grow without the confines of Google+ and offer even more capabilities to end users. And following this thought process, Google did announce that Google+ will continue to focus on interest based and engaging content, such as what we've seen launched with Google+ collections.

I've always said since day one that Google+ is the best network for engaging with like minded individuals and I still believe that to be true to this day and for the foreseeable future. I just have not had the same experience anywhere else online. In that regard, Google+ is truly a social network, it's beyond status updates.

As for YouTube comments, well, I think I'm alone here. I really enjoyed the integration between Google+ and YouTube. Having a unified system for commenting seemed like the better option to me, especially since Google+ offered much better spam and comment moderation tools than the previous YouTube comment system. In the future, I'll have to share a video with my thoughts on Google+, then copy and paste exact same comments on YouTube, and finally monitor replies on both platforms. That just seems like a time waster.

Ultimately, I may not agree with every move, but I think it's for the best. This will allow the Google+ product team to focus on being social and not having to be the jack of all trades.___

Microsoft now has an Android launcher called Arrow Launcher

Good ole MS is continuing their fast tracked jump into Android apps with their latest being a full blown home screen replacement with Arrow Launcher. I'll go out on a limb here and say that this most likely will be tied to Cortana in in some sort of way in the future. The major hurdle here though is to get people to actually use both of them. Once you do, you're only a few apps away from turning your Android phone with Google services into a Microsoft powered Android phone. Quite interesting.
