Derek Ross1,066,974The 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 03:00:00100

If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier.

Markos Giannopoulos18,370The smiling circle! // Checking my profile on +CircleCount, I found out that someone added a "smile" tag on it. Tags is a feature on Circlecount where you can add tags on your profile to show what kind of content you post, but other people can add tags as well. So, some kind person added a "smile" tag on me. Whoever you are, thank you!Apparently, there are more people with the tag (see http://bit.ly/1ftgCJw), but for easier access to some positively-charged people, I've created a circle out of this list using +Circloscope. Included are some highly succesfull people, so perhaps there is some correlation.  :) That said, you should head over to circlecount.com, find your favorite similing person and add the smile tag on his/her profile ;) #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles #publiccirclesproject #reshare #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles #sharingcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #share   #shared   #followers   #addcircles #publicsharedcircles   #share   #addpeople   #addcircle #addfriends   #circle   #socialmedia     #influencers   #influencer   2014-03-12 12:30:108110118

The best announcement today? Apple Pay

We can go back and forth and fanboy as much as we want, I know I did today. The fact of the matter is, as always, Apple's device launch is good for Android. The best announcement today? Apple Pay.

For over 3 years we've been wanting Google Wallet and NFC payments everywhere. At first, carriers blocked it because they wanted a piece of the pie. With Android KitKat, carriers and OEMs can still block Google Wallet (and it has happened) but now there's really no excuse as Softcard (Isis) is finally a carrier powered alternative solution.

Google Wallet has had the chance to take hold over the past year but hasn't seen much growth. In fact, I can only think of one or two times over the past 3 years that I've seen any sort of advertisement for Google Wallet. I can guarantee you that most users aren't aware of the... more »

While this might be a bit disheartening if you're an avid user of simultaneous voice and data due to a pending future update that enables this functionality, Verizon is headed in the right direction. This is all part of their grand scheme to do away with their aging CDMA network. This is the first step towards the future.

The Verizon Moto X (2nd gen) will launch without simultaneous voice and data and requires future Advanced Calling 1.0 to gain this functionality.

Run Android APKs on Chrome OS, OS X, Linux and Windows

While we wait for Google to allow more than just a few Android apps to run on Chrome, developers are busy doing developy things, such as coming up with nifty little hack that allows you to run any Android APK on on Chrome. If you don't mind getting your hands a little dirty and feel like geeking out a little bit, this is for you.

tinyCam Monitor Pro brings surveillance to your wrist

The latest beta of tinyCam Monitor pro allows you to monitor your surveillance camera feeds right on your wrist computer for those moments when you're too lazy to pull your phone out of your pocket or when your phone is across the room and your legs are broken. Whether you think this is useful or practical isn't the point right now. This is pretty damn cool.

Android L to bring device encryption by default

With the launch of Android L (hopefully in about a month) devices will have encryption enabled by default. Full device encryption isn't new to Android, being around since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, however it's seldom used as most people aren't aware the capability even exists.

Enabling this feature by default is a huge plus for user security and privacy.

“For over three years Android has offered encryption, and keys are not stored off of the device, so they cannot be shared with law enforcement,” said company spokeswoman Niki Christoff. “As part of our next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default out of the box, so you won't even have to think about turning it on.”

I'm sure a few Android fans will want to turn this feature off though. I'm hopingthat... more »

In the grand scheme of things, a swappable back cover isn't the end of the world. It's just a shame for those that wanted it to have to live with broken promises.

A rant worth sharing.

So, Germany wants to know the secret sauce that makes Google successful

Well, let me spare a few minutes and give you guys a rundown on the deepest secrets that make Google successful.

In fact, myself and other German Googlers are all too eager to explain German companies how to be as innovative and successful as Google.
+Frederik G. Pferdt was just recently in Germany, disclosing some of the "secret internals" how Google works: http://www.schwaebische.de/region_artikel,-Kreativitaet-ist-kinderleicht-Ex-Ravensburger-erklaert-die-Welt-von-Google-_arid,10055664_toid,535.html
And then there's +Eric Schmidt who recently published a whole book called "How Google Works".

Oh, that's not enough? You want the real secret how actually it works?

Well, let me give you a few ideas why companies in the "Silicon Valley" (Incl. Google) are more successful than in Germany.

Let your employees be passionate.  When I worked at a supplier to Siemens in Erlangen, i had a important product launch on Monday. I was literally escorted out the building on Friday by security because noone is allowed in the office after 8PM, and not at all on weekends. Some union law, security, etc.
Here at Google we have "Bacon Sundays" where management and the team stay late and work sometimes even on weekends (yes, heaven forbid, even SUNDAY) when we get ready for a big launch. Everyone is passionate, everyone wants to give its 110%.
No, I dont feel exploited, I feel proud to do my part to change the world!

In Germany I wanted to introduce a Linux Server at my company. The IT guy told me that we only do NOVEL servers. period. Quote: "Over his dead body" will he let a Linux machine in his server room.
Because we've always used Novel for everything.
That was 1997, around the same time Larry introduced the famous "cork-board" Linux Servers which were home built off the shelf Linux servers.

At another company my manager told me he doesn't want me to lead a critical team, because I ride a motorcycle, and that is too risky. Quote: "Does your mother know you ride a motorcycle" - I was 35, this is none of my mothers business, or - my managers.
At Google we have +Sergey Brin who frequently jumps out of airplanes. Risk taking is encouraged.

At previous jobs I have seen managers who spent their entire year trying to cover up a mistake and make excuses. At Google, we "Fail Fast" and learn from our mistakes.
In Germany, admitting a mistake is a career limiting thing. At Google we say - If you don't occasionally fail, you're not thinking big enough. And when you fail, we ask "what did you learn from it?"

I have been in companies where I had a new idea, and was told "I've been here 27 years, and I tell you how we do this here!"
At Google we have 27 yr old managers who are in charge of billion dollar moonshots. And they have 50yr old employees reporting to them who respect their authority.

But truely the most unique thing:  At Google, we have our founders be THERE and with the people.
You will see Eric at lunch, bump into Sergey in the elevator and - if you come to the weekly all-hands, you can ask them ANYTHING.
They will genuinely try to answer your questions.

When was the last time any "Rank and File" Employee at Axel Springer has asked a candid question to the CEO Mathias Döpfner?

THAT is the true secret of Google's success.
Not some silly search algorithm.

If you're really interested in the search algorithm, you can always read up on it here:  http://infolab.stanford.edu/~backrub/google.html

The Moto 360 isn't perfect, but it doesn't need to be

Here's my mini review for the Moto 360. Over the past week I've been using the Moto 360 in place of my G Watch that I've had since Google IO back in June. The initial reports for the Moto 360 were dismal, reporting horrible battery life and poor performance. Well, I'm going to say those reports are mostly wrong.

The battery life in the Moto 360 is less than the LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live, but that doesn't matter. You still need to charge all of these watches every night before bed. Sure, in my experiences the LG G Watch would last into the next day, but it's quite silly to leave the house int he morning with a device that's 2/3 of the way dead. The bottom line about the Moto 360 and battery life? It will get you through a normal day. Charge it every night with your phone. Under normal... more »

The bottom line about the Moto 360 and battery life? It will get you through a normal day. Charge it every night with your phone. Under normal use cases you won't have any issues.

Those of you that are watch wearing folk might balk at that suggestion seeing as your current watch may last years without a batter swap. Well, guess what. This isn't a normal watch. It's a smartphone accessory, it's a wrist computer.

As for performance, I can say that I have noticed a little bit of UI lag compared to my LG G Watch. Was it a big deal? No, because this isn't something I'm using non stop for 30 minutes at a time. These Android Wear devices are meant for short interactions, a few minutes or even a few seconds at a time and nothing more. Would I like it fixed? Sure. I hope a software update comes along and fixes the jank. Either way, it's definitely not a deal breaker.

Motorola shines with their suite of apps on the Moto X and it's no  different here with the 360. The watch faces that come with the Moto 360 are superior to any watch face that comes on other devices. And because it's round, talented developers and designers are creating faces based on designs that have been used on conventional watches for years. Besides watch faces, Motorola packed in two apps to take advantage of the built in heart rate monitor which offer nice activity monitoring features.

The small black bar at the bottom that drives the display doesn't bother me. I got used to it in a day or so and honestly I don't even notice it anymore, which may be because I only use dark watch faces. And speaking of the display, it works better than the LG G Watch does when it comes to direct sunlight.

The Moto 360 is one sexy piece of hardware. It's not perfect, but no device on the market is perfect. The very minor shortcomings or issues I've experienced are dwarfed by the overall look and feel of this device. Should you buy it? Well, that's up to you. There's always going to be new devices on the horizon. For now, I'm very happy with my Moto 360.

Feel free to read the following from +Christopher Chavez. He echos a lot of my thoughts on the subject and then some.___

Moto 360, Fitness, and the built in Heart Rate Monitor

I'm not an active guy anymore. I play golf during the warmer months and that's about it. I want to get into better shape. No... I need to get into better shape. I'm going to use the Moto 360 and it's Heart Rate Monitor / Pedometer to do it.

The Moto 360 includes two special Motorola apps aimed at tracking your heart rate and activity throughout he day. You'll get notifications when you're about to hit your daily and weekly goal, such as at least 30 minutes of moderate to intensity aerobic activity at least 5 days per week.

I tried this with a Fitbit, but eventually stopped wearing it. I believe I'll have better success with a smartwatch with Android Wear.

And then +Punit Soni announced that he was leaving +Motorola Mobility....

+Punit Soni, your role and your community involvement will be missed. Thank you for everything you did. I wish you the best of luck in your next endeavor.

Thanks 

I still remember the first time I went to Libertyville, Illinois to visit the Motorola Campus. There was this sense of awe at being in a company whose invention, the cell phone, would forever change the world. 

For the next couple of years, we worked hard to marry the agility of a modern internet services company with the legacy of the greatest telecommunications company in the world. We crafted a new portfolio of products, we rebuilt our software stack, we launched the Moto X, then G and then E. Motorola is now firmly on the path of regaining its place as one of the most relevant companies of the mobile era.

Today I am announcing my departure from Motorola after a couple of amazing years in the best job I have ever had. 

I have had the fortune of working with an amazing Product team under the leadership of +Rick Osterloh, someone who taught me more about being a leader than anyone ever has. Also special gratitude to +Vic Gundotra, +Bradley Horowitz, +Jonathan Rosenberg, +Dennis Woodside, and +Lior Ron  for their support and for pointing me in the right direction. This gig was not possible without them. To my Software PM team who I love, stay true to the mission. And to Motorolans, you are truly the best mobile team in the world. It is reflected in the quality of your products.

And finally, thanks to you, the users who embraced our work and personally supported me. Most of our software was the result of the direct dialogue we had with each other. Thanks for your patience and support.

My favorite moment at Motorola was when I was up on stage at the Moto G launch in Brazil, looking into the eyes of the audience, proud to be talking about a product that we fervently believed in, that was built with true user value as its core tenet, that embodied the best of the new Motorola’s principles. I still remember the verve, the energy and the passion.

The rest of my career will be about recapturing that. Thank you Motorola. ___And then +Punit Soni announced that he was leaving +Motorola Mobility....

Android Silver might be dead

This is quite saddening. Android Silver, or what was rumored to be Silver, was something that Android fans have wanted since the inception of our beloved platform. We have wanted Google's Android, in it's most Googly and purest form, running on the best hardware possible. Nexus devices are amazing in their own right, but they always seem to skimp on battery and camera, something other OEMs improve upon. However, said OEMs do not provide the coveted Google experience that many of us have wanted. Additionally, some of us just love [insert OEM here]'s hardware and design. Android is normally about choice, but sometimes it's about sacrifices too. I believed Silver was the answer to that problem, at least from an Android fanboy's point of view.

Thanks to a leaked APK and the folks over at +Android Police, we have a sneak peak at the Google Play Store version 5.0. As you can see the new Play Store continues to focus on content, usability, and has updated colors for Google's new design palette. The bottom line, it's glorious (unless you're +Jake Weisz, then it's hideous and you want to kill it with fire).

See you (roomie) at the +Big Android BBQ and keep at it +Android Etch. I drink out of your pint glasses every day.

#Android   #BABBQ5  

Man, where have we been?

That's a really great question. All has been quiet on this front a long time, and for that, I want to apologize. (Sort of.)

Like most of you know, a while back, Android Etch did a big project that ended up shorting out the laser tube. I didn't have enough funds to get a new laser tube right then (the laser broke about 850 work hours early), so I kicked around a crowdfunding campaign to try and raise the money.

Some generous people donated some, but I could have done more to try and push it, so while it did help offset some of the cost of a new laser tube, it didn't completely fund it. Still, no worries!

While I looked for more avenues to try and raise the money, time wore on, and before I knew it, the school year was starting. (Teaching is my full-time gig.)

I ended up deciding to just eat the remainder out of my regular paycheck to get things going again, and now I'm just waiting for the tube to arrive.

All of that being said, I'm happy to exclaim that Android Etch will be at the +Big Android BBQ on October 17th, and if you look at the attached picture, the AE logo is even smack dab in the middle of all of the sponsors. :D

As soon as the tube comes in, I'll start working on my order for +Aaron Kasten and the BABBQ, and also be taking orders again on the website!

To commemorate the occasion, a coupon code/discount is underway (stay tuned for that!), and I'll also be offering free shipping for those who want to pick up their orders locally at the Big Android BBQ.

In short, Android Etch is definitely still here, and I'm happy to be back in the game again (almost!).

Anyway, just thought I'd fill everyone in. Hope to hear from you soon!___See you (roomie) at the +Big Android BBQ and keep at it +Android Etch. I drink out of your pint glasses every day.

I have 25% battery left. I've been off the charger for 16 hours. I used my watch pretty heavily today doing all sorts of voice commands and messaging. I'm not going to charge overnight. We'll see if it's dead in the morning.

Yes, it seems Phandroid is at another Google Play Store naming / branding dilemma. Compliance is not the issue. It's the lack of an official, non automated response from Google.

Android Forums needs to be changed to include "for Android" in the name. Is AndroidForums.com for Android compliant? Is Android Forums for Android compliant? How can we use Android Forums in the app name and still be compliant? That's the business / website name.

I also want to know who we pissed off at Google or who keeps reporting us (a competitor?). This is the second time this has happened in recent months. +Phandroid and +Android Forums are the oldest Android news and forum websites web sites on the Internet. They've been around since the November 5, 2007. It's not like we're a new organization.

Today L - Open Play Store Beta

We're gearing up for the release of the material version of Today, and in preparation we're holding an open beta for everyone to try out.


This contains no Android L API's - so nothing particularly fancy. It's predominantly a UI change as Google does not yet allow L builds on the Play Store.

NICE. Congrats Chromebook owners! You can now cast videos from Drive to your Chromecast with the latest dev channel update.

We can now cast our favorite movies stored in Google Drive directly from the Video Player App to a ChromeCast¹ in the last Dev Update of Chrome OS.

Go give it a try! Open the Files App, select the Drive section, play a movie and notice the new ChromeCast icon in the Video Player App player. If you don't see it, that means you may not have installed or enabled the Google Cast Extension².

And if you encounter any issue, the chromium team will thank you for reporting it at http://crbug.com/new.

Unlocked Moto X to be called Pure Edition

A new report says Motorola will retire the term Developer Edition for Pure Edition for the new Moto X. This makes a whole hell of a lot of sense seeing as many non developers will purchase a Moto X without a contract. So, if a Moto X without carriers is called Pure, what's the carrier edition called? Bloated? Tainted? :p

Windows 9 Start Menu Leaks

Here's a video of the new, redesigned Start Menu for Windows 9. As you can see, it's a combination of the Windows 8.x Start Page and the Windows 7/Vista Start Menu. The menu mixes traditional settings and apps along with metro (modern) apps. In my opinion, it's not bad and it's better than the current abomination.

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch Battery Life

+Christopher Chavez has a nice comparison of battery life between the the LG G Watch and the Moto 360 over the past two days. His findings seem to mimic my findings thus far. The Moto 360 will get you through the day and that's about it. In terms of total battery life, the LG G Watch soars way ahead of the 360.

That doesn't mean I don't like this smartwatch, I do. I wish battery life was a bit more and that's a bit saddening, but damn this thing is sexy and I love it for that fact alone. We'll see what tomorrow brings when I crank up my usage back to normal, putting that battery through a bit more testing.

Well Moto 360, you're a sexy piece of hardware. Let's hope tomorrow goes better than today did. Tomorrow will be the first real day and I'm excited to give the battery and processor a true test.

I'll include the list of bugs and annoyances I had to deal with in a later post.

+NVIDIA outs HTC Nexus 9

Thanks to NVIDIA's recent legal battle against Qualcomm and Samsung, we now now know that HTC is making a Nexus 9 powered by a Tegra K1. There wasn't much doubt before thanks to various leaks, however it's still nice to have additional confirmation.

Hangouts and the Dialer both ring if you have your GV number configured to ring your phone. Hangouts rang first, crashed, then the dialer rang.

Confirmed. This is what I did when I saw the announcement.

#pixelpushing #hulkrage  

"Starting today you can make voice calls from Hangouts on Android, iOS and the web" and I was imagining at least some of the people not included in the first [totally random nothing allegedly personal] rollout wave of the latest app update being all like...___Confirmed. This is what I did when I saw the announcement.

Free voice calling finally comes to Hangouts!

Remember when I said today was the best day ever? Wow.

Starting today you can make voice calls from Hangouts on Android, iOS and the web. It’s free to call other Hangouts users, it’s free to call numbers in the U.S. and Canada, and the international rates are really low. So keeping in touch is easier and more affordable than ever.

To get started on Android, just grab the new version of Hangouts (v2.3, rolling out over the next few days), then install the accompanying dialer to turn on voice calls. On iOS and the web, voice calls will be available the next time you open the app.

The best announcement today? Apple Pay

We can go back and forth and fanboy as much as we want, I know I did today. The fact of the matter is, as always, Apple's device launch is good for Android. The best announcement today? Apple Pay.

For over 3 years we've been wanting Google Wallet and NFC payments everywhere. At first, carriers blocked it because they wanted a piece of the pie. With Android KitKat, carriers and OEMs can still block Google Wallet (and it has happened) but now there's really no excuse as Softcard (Isis) is finally a carrier powered alternative solution.

Google Wallet has had the chance to take hold over the past year but hasn't seen much growth. In fact, I can only think of one or two times over the past 3 years that I've seen any sort of advertisement for Google Wallet. I can guarantee you that most users aren't aware of the... more »

We can go back and forth and fanboy as much as we want, I know I did today. The fact of the matter is, as always, Apple's device launch is good for Android. The best announcement today? Apple Pay.

For over 3 years we've been wanting Google Wallet and NFC payments everywhere. At first, carriers blocked it because they wanted a piece of the pie. With Android KitKat, carriers and OEMs can still block Google Wallet (and it has happened) but now there's really no excuse as Softcard (Isis) is finally a carrier powered alternative solution.

Google Wallet has had the chance to take hold over the past year but hasn't seen much growth. In fact, I can only think of one or two times over the past 3 years that I've seen any sort of advertisement for Google Wallet. I can guarantee you that most users aren't aware of the service or feature. I know the few times I've used it I was looked at like I was some sort of wizard. Well, that's about to change.

Now with the second most popular mobile platform embracing NFC and mobile payments, we're going to see new NFC terminals pop up at your favorite retailer. Why? Because "only Apple could do this." Only Apple has the marketing and advertising know how to make this a feature that everyone must have. No one can drive a market like they can.

So, I'm happy. I'm happy that eventually I'll be able to use my Moto X with Google Wallet more than I have in the past.

And sure, when I go to make an NFC payment and the cashier asks if I'm using an iPhone and how cool my iPhone is, I'm going to say no, this is Android. I've been able to make NFC payments for years, but thanks for asking, smile, and walk away. (Unless next, they ask me about my wrist computer or my face computer as per the norm.)___
