Big Android BBQ8,037The 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 Ross1,223,926*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

Hey look, another phone on +Swappa!

Yes, I'm selling this phone for a lot more than it's worth. But I have good reasons. The day after father's day in June this summer, one of my best friends died tragically in a car accident. This is his wife's old Galaxy Note. She asked me to sell her old phone to help raise money for her and her two small boys who are 3 and 10 months old. I know it's not much, but every little bit helps.

So, there's this Hangouts bug, where if you happen to open a Google+ Page account in one tab and be logged into your personal Google+ account on another tab, the Page account automatically joins the Hangout. It's a pretty bad and annoying bug.

That said, I'm actually getting accused right now of having a "Phandroid spy account" in one of my group Hangouts because of this bug.

HILARIOUS.

This fix only works if you are the account owner and have access to create or make a page account. If you're just a page manager, you cannot use this work around.

Hulu without ads is here for $12 a month

Hulu has announced a mostly ad-free tier for $4 more a month. The 'No Commercials' plan isn't completely ad-free though. Some shows and movies will still contain ads at the beginning and at the end as Hulu hasn't obtained the rights to offer them without commercials.

Are you going to upgrade? I'm not sure yet.

Have you ever visited a website and have the site tell you to install it's app in a massive, annoying advertisement? We all have... (and thankfully a certain site doesn't do that anymore). We all know this sucks and Google apparently thinks it sucks too. Google will soon start to downrank sites that annoyingly ask you to install their app. Nice.

Nextbit Robin can now be backed on Kickstarter

I'm a bit tired of the traditional looking smartphone. The design here definitely has my attention. For $299 (well, they're all gone now, so now for $349) you can get a whole lot of smartphone for not a whole lot of money.

That said, I dislike "buying" a phone on Kickstarter and waiting 4+ months to get it.

It’s thinner, sleeker, and more beautiful than ever. The display is even bigger and sharper. And now the Nest Thermostat does something new. We call it Farsight. When you walk into the room, Farsight lights up and shows you the temperature you set or the time. You can even choose a digital or analog clock face. It’s big and bright - you can see it from across the room.

Er.. regular coasters. You don't have to use them for beer. I totally would though... or possibly decorations.

NEW - ANDROIDIFY'D COASTERS
Get a set of custom printed coasters featuring the Androidify graphic you create. If you choose to have both sides printed, we will create a custom back side version of your Androidify graphic. Choose between six different coaster shapes. Printed on 3.5″ x 3.5″ premium, compressed board which makes them durable enough for multiple uses.

Each order is given the attention of a talented graphic designer who will remaster your Androidify graphic to make it print-ready, as well as crafting the custom back side version if your order two-sided printing.___Androidify'd beer coasters!

Congrats iOS users, you're getting Google+ Collections. Here's a collection you might like: https://plus.google.com/collection/4Q-Yh

Introducing Google+ Collections on iOS

Google+ users on Android and the web are using Collections to connect with others around shared interests ranging from Homebrewing https://goo.gl/llrjAO, Climbing Junkie Photos https://goo.gl/Jeaaqr to Magical, Mystical Mountains https://goo.gl/OCM4mm and Marine Life https://goo.gl/4ISRZz. Today, we’re excited to announce Collections on iOS.

Create a Collection about something you’re interested in; make as many as you’d like;  and don’t worry about over sharing since people can follow just the Collections they like. 

Google+ users who have already created Collections asked us for the ability to customize who can see their Collections and if they could add taglines to describe them. We recently announced these features on Android and the web; today they are also available on iOS. To better explore the wide range of Collections https://goo.gl/437uWV already created, we announced last week that you can search for Collections on Google+ on Android as well. 

Thanks to everyone for these ideas. Please keep the feedback coming - we’re listening. Have questions about Collections?  Check out our Help Center http://goo.gl/zyIVMH or join this community for Help, Tips & Tricks: http://goo.gl/meRk8j.

To get Collections in your Google+ iOS app, download it here: https://goo.gl/0aYo0Y.

As it stands right now, Android Wear for iOS only supports built in applications. There's no third party app support at this time. I'm wondering if Google will launch an Android Wear for Google Play type of store, where apps can be pushed to your watch from the cloud or if iOS apps will get methods for pushing APKs to Android Wear through some sort of iOS wrapper app?

Version numbers really don't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. However, for those that need validation on Android Marshmallow getting a full version bump, here's a nice feature list reminder.

Some people believe that Android M doesn’t deserve the title of Android 6, mainly because it isn’t as big of an overhaul as previous Android 1.x releases have been or because it doesn’t accompany the visual changes we’ve seen on previous 1.x releases.

While on some level this is true, going over the long list of improvements does really put into perspective how big of an update M truly is.

Let’s go over all the features we will(or might) see on Android M:
• Now on Tap
• Permissions Management
• SD Cards can be “merged” with internal storage
• Android Pay
• Native fingerprint authentication
• Automatic app data backups
• App Links (you’re going to see less of those “what do you want to open this in?” prompts)
• Doze and App Standby
• Multi Window(currently hidden, uncertain future)
• Theming support(currently hidden, uncertain future)
• Dark theme(removed, uncertain future)
• Customisable Quick Toggles along with other UI tweaking
• Visual Voicemail Support
• Redesign of the Clock Widget and Music Identification Widget
• New “Memory” Section in Settings(it was there before, but hidden)
• Support for deleting screenshots directly through the notification centre after they’ve been taken
• Landscape mode available for the Google Now Launcher(feature will likely be backported to older versions of Android)
• New app and widget drawer with scroll bar support and vertical scrolling
• Built-In File Manager receives a bump in functionality
• Native tap to wake support
• Ability to disable “heads up” or “peeking” notifications
• Native 4K output support
• Stricter APK validation
• MIDI support
• USB Type C support
• New boot animation
• Introduction of a “voice interaction” API to allow better interaction with voice actions in apps
• Toggling battery saver by voice
• Ability to undo and redo text changes with bluetooth keyboard shortcuts
• Multi-selection to merge, delete or share has been added in the contacts application
• Faster text selection along with a floating toolbar for text actions
• Default apps UI
• Direct share can allow you directly share stuff with contacts through the share menu
• Much more granular app info
• Native bluetooth stylus support
• Split-screen keyboard
• Better do not disturb along with repeat caller exceptions
• Bluetooth scanning to improve location accuracy
• Native flashlight API
• Easier access to Multi volume controls(ringer, media, alarm)
• Smoother volume scrubbing (credits to Jason Efstathiou)

Putting all those features aside there are also a number of under-the-hood improvements that seem to have had a very positive impact on both performance and power usage.

I’m puzzled as to how someone could call this a “minor” update.

2) With Android, we put up with a lot of shit for the sake of customization or doing 'cool things'.

I've never used an iOS device for more than a few seconds, setting up someone's WiFi or configuring someone's email settings. I personally cannot stand the look and feel of the OS and would never use it as my personal device.

Anyways, give the show a listen, it's definitely insightful.___

LG's new Nexus display panel spotted online

Well, you can tell it's Nexus season when we're comparing third party mockups based CAD files with supposed display panels leaked online. As insane as that sounds, the two devices do seem similar and as a bonus, the bezel seems smaller on the leaked panel. I love the hype, but seeing as we have a few months still, all this does it make the wait seem even longer.
