United Android App Adds Personal Device Entertainment, Allows You To Watch In-Flight TV / Movies On Your Tablet Or Phone

While it's been available on iOS for some time, United updated its Android app today in order to add support for a rather cool feature: on-device entertainment. Instead of having to deal with that atrocious LCD on the headrest, now you can watch your in-flight movies and TV on your own phone or tablet.

This is likely both a blessing and a curse. Who knows what the stream quality is like (anyone with an iPad who's used it want to chime in?), not to mention the reliability.

Code Commit Shows The Nexus 6 Had Tap-To-Wake Functionality, But Google Removed It

Tap-to-wake is one of the niftier features Google's implemented on the Nexus 9, but its telephony-enabled sibling didn't get the same treatment. We know that it almost did, though, thanks to a commit to the device's source code made on September 10th. (We also pointed this out in our review of the Nexus 6).

Google hasn't commented on this other than to make clear that tap-to-wake is not a feature of the Nexus 6.

Cyanogen Inc Announces Micromax Partnership In India, Forming The "YU" Phone Brand

Cyanogen Inc apparently had a sit-down with The Verge recently, detailing in not-very-much-detail its new partnership with Indian smartphone OEM Micromax. CEO Kirt McMaster says the first device will be released as part of a new brand to be called "YU," and it will come preloaded with some apps and services that are "popular" in India. That is quite literally everything that was announced.

The partnership had been previously rumored, with a phone potentially coming before the end of the year.

Your WhatsApp Messages Could Already Be Encrypted Thanks To New TextSecure Integration

You may not use WhatsApp to send messages, but it's still the most popular messaging platform in the world. As such, it's a big deal when the switch gets flipped and all those messages are suddenly encrypted. That's what the company is doing now thanks to the just-announced integration of the TextSecure protocol from Open Whisper Systems.

[Bug Watch] Something Has Broken 'OK Google' Everywhere On The Nexus 9, We're Just Not Sure What It Is

Many Nexus 9 owners appear to be experiencing a bug that causes OK Google Everywhere voice recognition to simply not work, unless you're on the homescreen. Toggling the options or rebooting the tablet doesn't seem to fix it, and not everyone is affected.

We initially thought this might have been caused by the recent update to LRX21Q (the earliest orders from Google Play shipped with LRX21L), but that's apparently not the case, either.

Google Posts Updated LRX21R Factory Image For Nexus 9

LRX21R started going out as an OTA for Nexus 9 users on the LRX21Q build yesterday, but today Google has posted the complete factory image. You can get it here.

Hopefully this new R build will upgrade users currently stuck on LRX21L (the OTA to Q simply fails), though we don't know that for certain, as it's currently only rolling out in OTA form for those on the Q build.

Google Updates 'A Journey Through Middle-earth' Chrome Experiment With Multiplayer Peer-To-Peer Battles

When you've already created a browser-based interactive experience that lets players explore a 3D recreation of various locales spread throughout Middle-earth, how do you up your game? You add multiplayer. At least, that's what Google's decided to do. The company has updated its "A Journey Through Middle-earth" Chrome experiment with the ability for players to challenge each other to a bout of Hobbit-inspired fun.

Google developers designed the game using web technologies such as WebRTC and WebGL.

HUD For Glass Turns Google's Eyewear Into A Pilot's Wingman

Let's change the way we think about Google Glass for a moment. At the end of the day, they're just too jarring for the average person to feel comfortable wearing in public. To people who don't know what they are, they're weird. To people who do, they're $1,500 worth of easily-stolen accessory being flaunted on your face.

But for performing specific-tasks, Glass makes sense. If they can help you perform surgery, why not?

[Update: Ships With Google Apps] Nokia Announces N1 Tablet With Lollipop, 7.9" 4:3 Display, 64-Bit Intel Processor, Reversible MicroUSB Connector

Nokia is taking the stage today at Slush 2014, the Eurasian tech incubator event in Helsinki, to announce its N1 tablet with Android 5.0 Lollipop. This is the original Nokia we're talking about here, the one still in Finland, that includes all the divisions that didn't get bought by Microsoft. Part of me wants to scream, "You should have taken this route 4 years ago!" while the other is just too happy to see Nokia standing on its feet and trying something again — while also reviving the Nseries monicker.

The Google Developers blog has posted an introduction to Android Auto and announced that the final APIs are ready for developers to get to work.
