Big Android BBQ8,355The 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 Ross1,280,162*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

Awww yiiisss! Transformers 5, 6, and 7 set to hit theaters in 2017, 2018, and 2019

Michael Bay and Marky Mark are set to bring about the next Transformers trilogy. I know a lot of people aren't fans of those two, or at least Michael Bay, but I love the Transformers movies as I used to be obsessed with the cartoons and action figures as a kid. I don't think these movies ruin my childhood. I can't wait dammit.

Apple TV will finally get voice dictation... wow.

If you thought having the latest generation of Apple TV meant you'd be able to use voice dictation, you'd be wrong, at least until now. The latest beta adds much needed voice capabilities to Apple's little streaming device.

A new report seems to think the Googs is going to bake VR capabilities into Android. Will we see a +Google Cardboard++ with Project Tango capabilities all baked into VR hardware come IO 2016? I'd like to think it's a safe bet that Google is going all in with VR this coming year.

Android phones could soon 'see' on their own without the need to use Google's backend AI.

Google could place Movidius' MA2450 chip inside Android handsets to allow them to understand and identify images like faces and street signs in real time, without the need to upload photos and wait for algorithms to do their magic in the cloud.

Google Play Games to lose Google+ requirement

To sign into your game, you'll no longer be required to have a Google+ account, nor will you have to manually sign in to every single game. Here's the skinny:

Players are prompted to sign-in once per account, rather than once per game

Players no longer need their account upgraded to Google+ to use Play Games services

Once players have signed-in for the first time, they will no longer need to sign in to any future games; they will be automatically signed in

Google HAS to bring their services back to China before it's too late. Many reports have said it's happening, it's just a matter of when.
