Earthquakes and Android Development

Earthquakes and Android Development

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This Week in Google, Episode 46

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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....

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 does...

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...

Live from Google I/O: Waving Thursday’s Keynote

Yesterday’s live wave coverage of the Google I/O keynote was so much fun we’re doing it again today. The Day 2 keynote starts at 8:30am (in less than 20 minutes), and Adam Pash, Kevin Marks and I will be live-waving it.

Live from Google I/O: Waving Wednesday’s Keynote

Google kicks off its annual two-day developerfest Google I/O today in San Francisco, and no doubt there are goodies in store during the opening keynote this morning from 9 until 10:30am Pacific Time. Google TV? Google Storage? Android 2.2? A better Buzz, Wave, or Chrome? You can watch the live video stream on YouTube as it happens. I’ll be in a seat in the audience at the Moscone Center, live-typing commentary in the wave embedded below, along with Adam Pash from Lifehacker, Leo...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together and in...

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Yesterday’s post generated some interest in an Android application that manages a todo.txt file, and I’ve got an itch to try my hand at a mobile app. So, I’ve just created a skeleton Java-based Android app called Todo.txt Touch. The source code is located on GitHub, and it literally does nothing right now, except list some faux tasks from an XML file. Goal is to get the app to read a todo.txt from Dropbox (and eventually, other configurable cloud sources), sort and...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google announced the all-new Google Buzz today, a Gmail “inbox” of sorts that aggregates all your contacts’ social network activity across the web. Lifehacker’s got the full rundown. A few quickly-jotted first impressions of the service: This ain’t no Orkut. Buzz demonstrates that Google is VERY serious about social media, and just threw down the gauntlet in an attempt to take on Facebook and Twitter. However, they’re doing it by embracing existing...

How to Tether Your Android Phone

How to Tether Your Android Phone

There are three ways to tether your Android handset and get sweet internet love even where there’s no Wi-Fi in sight: the risky-but-free method that requires serious technical skills, the still-geeky-but-not-as-bad free route, and the $30 easy way. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each. Method 1: Tether Android with Apps that Need Root (Free, heavy configuration) The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot–essentially a MiFi–in...

Organize Android’s Home Screen Icons in Folders

Organize Android’s Home Screen Icons in Folders

Android users have a limited number of home screens on their phone (3 to 5, depending on what version you use), but folders group your home screen shortcuts into quick pop-up menus. For example, I’ve got a few specific things I use on my phone when I go to the gym: a workout music playlist, a stopwatch app, my gym locker combination, a bookmark to an exercise program I’m following, and an app that tracks how far I’ve run. I only use these shortcuts when I’m at...

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

David Pogue says an ardent army of “Fandroids” attacked his mostly positive Nexus One review with the same mouth-foaming irrationality as Apple, Microsoft, and Linux fanboys of years past. Crazy people saying crazy things on the internet aside, Pogue makes a good point: Android has come to represent a kind of hacker counterculture, whose members dismiss the iPhone as closed, proprietary, and designed “for dummies” and sheep. I thought Pogue’s review was well...

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

I’m pretty excited about the launch of the Nexus One tomorrow (even though in Engadget’s video demo Android’s schmancy new Live wallpaper process crashes, see minute 4:09). Since my AT&T contract is up I’m planning on getting one along with a new two-year T-Mobile contract. Even though I hate getting locked into another contract, dropping almost $500 on an unsubsidized phone felt like a little too much. However, it looks like the phone plus a data-only T-Mobile...

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

With so much going on in the mobile phone industry, I have decided to do a bit of a comprehensive round up. This is an essential update of all the intriguing new phones that you have had your eyes on. Like the X6, the N900, the HD2, etc. This is a strictly non-Apple/iPhone update, mainly because that needs a separate post. 😉 There’s a second part coming in a bit. Get over to the other side and get updated in the mean time. Nokia X6 To Land In The UK This Friday If you have been...
