Earthquakes and Android Development

Earthquakes and Android Development

While last night’s southern California earthquake shook up the Padres game, I was standing in a doorway downloading an Android app. Twitter was down, the news didn’t have anything yet, but I remembered Reto Meier, a Googler who did an Android talk at I/O had demo’ed an earthquake detection app. It’s called Earthquake!, and it’s got some very useful features, especially when you’re worried about the earth cracking open and swallowing your home...

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This week’s episode of TWiG featured Jeff Jarvis Skyping over 3G from a moving car on a NJ highway, Brad Stone from the NY Times who was a total trooper during our criticism of the Times’ takedown of the Pulse iPhone RSS reader, and Om Malik of Gigaom, a very smart teddy bear who I’d like to hug. My tip this week: the new Gmail Labs’ Maps Preview, which embeds a Google Map into any email that has a U.S. address in it. Continua a leggere –...

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

Nicole Lee does the hard work so I don’t have to: feature by feature comparison of the iPhone 4 and the 4G HTC EVO. As far as I’m concerned, the EVO’s the better deal: bigger screen, more customizable OS, Google Maps navigation, Google Voice native app, tethering/portable hotspot, kickstand, Sprint 4G network support, expandable MicroSD up to 32GB, and removable battery. No-brainer. Continua a leggere – Original Link: iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO Technorati Tags:...

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which has a front-facing video camera, and presumably the ability...

This Week in Google Episode 45

This Week in Google Episode 45

In this week’s episode of TWiG, Leo, Jeff, and I talked about Google’s “ban” of Windows PCs for employees, Android tablets, the Sprint EVO (which I love), blogger journalism, and some of Steve Jobs’ remarks at D8. My tip of the week was the new “Save to Google Docs” link in Google’s PDF viewer.

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Just stumbled upon a YouTube clip of one of the best Ignite presentations I’ve seen, by Hilary Mason, a computer scientist at Bit.ly. Mason wrote a series of scripts that auto-respond to email with particular content, and auto-nag folks she’s emailed but hasn’t gotten a response from yet. Hit the play button to hear more. She says once the code’s fit for sharing she’ll put it up on GitHub. Cannot wait. Continua a leggere – Original Link: Hilary Mason:...

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets. If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how. This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method...

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Updated

Released a few fix-it updates to the Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Firefox extensions this week, which you can get by pressing the “Find Updates” button in your extensions dialog box. Better Gmail 2 version 1.2 plays catch-up with Google’s latest changes to Gmail: Hide Spam Count now works, and I swapped out Folders4Gmail (which no longer works) with Label Links, a script that does something similar to the Labs version of Nested Labels. Also replaced the CPU-hogging...

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Not only did Google pre-mail Droid handsets to I/O attendees, today they gave the Sprint HTC EVO 4G out to conference attendees at the Moscone Center, with a 2GB Micro SD card filled with music. Awhile back I tweeted that I wouldn’t accept “free” phones like these, since I cover Google on TWiG and at web sites and magazines where I occasionally freelance, and accepting a “gift” from a company I talk and write about so much seemed like a bad idea. But, I’m...
