Big Android BBQ7,777The 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 Ross1,209,601*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

MPAA e-mail showcases anti-Google smear campaign

The memo says, "We propose working with MPAA (Vans), Comcast, and NewsCorp (Bill Guidera) to see about working with a PR firm to create an attack on Google (and others who are resisting AG efforts to address online piracy). This PR firm can be funded through a nonprofit dedicated to IP issues... After the Today Showsegment, you want to have a large investor of Google (George can help us determine that) come forward and say that Google needs to change its behavior/demand reform. Next, you want NewsCorp to develop and place an editorial in the WSJ [Wall Street Journal] emphasizing that Google's stock will lose value in the face of a sustained attack by AGs and noting some of the possible causes of action we have developed."

Moto X Play, DROID MAXX II, and Moto Surround.

Serial dude in the know, aka +Evan Blass​​, thinks we might see devices named Moto X Play, DROID MAXX II and Moto Surround. I'll toss my guesses and hopes out there.

Moto X Play - Either a Moto X sport or active edition.
DROID MAXX II - Well that ones easy.

Moto Surround - Moto SF520 is a high quality wireless music device that is tough enough for your workout, stylish enough for your fashion, and comfortable enough to forget you’re wearing it. 12 hours battery life means you can wear it all day without worry and with 150 ft range you have freedom to move about.

We'll find out tomorrow.

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.

Microsoft now has an Android launcher called Arrow Launcher

I could see various use cases for this, such as being able to switch user profiles or even just being able to control the TV itself.

I know that I wish Android TV has multiple profile support. Maybe this is a precursor to that coming to Apple TV?

Sony is building a new custom UI that more closely resembles 'vanilla' Android

It seems +Sony Xperia​ plans on taking the +Motorola Mobility​ route and dialing back their customized UI. Sony is currently testing a near stock Android experience with key Sony apps and features. While Sony's UI wasn't anything near as heavy as Samsung or LG, it's interesting to see them want to take this route. Many Android fans have wanted a Sony Nexus for a while. This might just be the next best thing.

Dear +The Verge​, here is a prime example why comments aren't the devil. Communication with your audience allows them to help you, when you're blatantly wrong, spreading misinformation.

I know I've updated an article or Google+ post many times if it turns out I was incorrect or was missing a piece of the puzzle. It's common sense...

Why you need comments
I swear The Verge turned off comments because they were tired of getting yelled at for screwing up posts like this.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/22/9013455/sony-android-concept-xperia-z3-software-preview

"The goal, says Sony, is to develop new software "from the ground up," meaning no Google Play Services or superfluous apps, just the core Google communications software and Sony's stack of custom apps like Camera, Music, and Xperia Lounge."

The second half of this sentence contradicts the first. You can't have Google apps without Google Play Services—they wouldn't work. Also releasing Android without Google Play Services would be in violation of the "anti-fragmentation clause" in their MADA contract and Google would pull their Google Play license.  

They don't even link to the actual Sony blog post so people can get the correct information. (it's here: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/07/22/launching-sonys-concept-for-android-initiative-in-sweden/ )

IF The Verge had comments turned on, this post would be getting ripped to shreds. Now they can misinform people in peace. ___Dear +The Verge​, here is a prime example why comments aren't the devil.

This button could also be a dedicated fingerprint reader and not also function as a home button.

Last year, OnePlus, thanks to CyanogenMod, allowed you to disable the physical buttons, opting for the use of software keys. This was a decent, but failed worked around as the physical keys could still be seen and took up a large portion of the bottom of the phone.

Physical keys were deprecated back in 2011 with the release of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. LG got the memo. HTC got the memo. Motorola got the memo. Samsung has yet to receive the memo and is currently wadding through TouchWiz bloat in hopes to find it some day in the distant future.

I was excited for this phone, but after seeing this, that excitement has dwindled. Hopefully OnePlus has something up their sleeve to bring back that excitement.___

Google is reportedly preparing a more durable Google Glass 'Enterprise Edition' that's water resistant and able to take more of a beating.

As a fan of +Google Glass​, I can't wait to see the progression of this wearable. I heard many, many moons ago that the next iteration of Glass being prototyped in the Glass for Work program was foldable, so this new report backs up said information. I also heard there's multiple prototypes out there now (which makes sense) so this may or may not be the same device that passed through the FCC recently.

Either way, we know another version of Glass is coming and I can't wait!

Google Photos FYI.

Though, I find the comment about having virtually two services being the same hilarious as Google does this constantly.

I wanted to clarify a couple of points regarding yesterday’s announcement (https://goo.gl/TL0l6j) and provide some additional context:

1. The great photo and video sharing service that’s part of Google+ is unaffected. You can continue to post photos and videos, and your followers will be able to comment and +1 as before. No change.

2. All of the photos, videos, and albums you have already shared on Google+, including their posts, comments, and +1s are also unaffected. An easy way to find these is to visit the Photos tab of your Profile page.

3. The private photo management component of Google+, which includes backup, editing, creations, private album management (album management for shared content is still available on Google+), and sharing to other apps, is being replaced by Google Photos.

I sincerely appreciate for many of you #3 is still a hard pill to swallow. And I promise we don’t take decisions like this one lightly. The reality is that maintaining both Google+ Photos (the private photo management component of Google+) and Google Photos poses several challenges. Most notably, it is confusing to users why we have two offerings that virtually do the same thing, and it means our team needs to divide its focus rather than working on building a single, great user experience. 

We are working very hard to bring all the best features of Google+ Photos to Google Photos, and this focus will allow us to deliver even more features at a much faster pace.___Google Photos FYI.

Apple Watch sales estimates remain lower than previously hoped

Industry analysts assumed that the Apple Watch was going to be the Jesus of wearables, something only Apple could do. While Apple most likely sold more smartwatches than competitors, the fact remains that wearable tech is still a brand new market and Wearables are still an accessory. Smartwatches aren't for everyone, and that's okay.

Google+ Photos is going to sunset come August 1st.

Replaced by +Google Photos back at Google IO 2015, the new Google Photos app is a great service for organizing and finding photos, thanks to Google's capabilities in machine learning.

While Google Photos is more mainstream than Google+ Photos (because it wasn't never marketed in the same manner), Google Photos is still missing a few key components, such as superior editing capabilities and Chromecast support. I'm sure features will be added as time progresses, following the El Goog norm of release early and iterate often.

Goodbye Google+ Photos, hello +Google Photos!

In May, we launched Google Photos as the home for all your photos and videos. With Google Photos you can store unlimited high quality photos and videos for free, find photos fast, and see them organized by what matters to you. Plus, you can bring moments to life and share anywhere with anyone.

In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos -- initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS.

If you’re still using Google+ Photos, now is a great time to make the switch. You may have seen a prompt in Google+ Photos on Android with a link to download the new Google Photos. Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.

Download the new Google Photos today for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.  If you don’t update to the new Google Photos, Google+ Photos on Android will soon stop working, but your photos and videos will still remain safely stored and available via http://photos.google.com or for export using Google Takeout.
