The Google I/O 2014 live coverage begins Wednesday, 9am Pacific.
Google Play Services 4.0 was released in late October just after the Nexus 5 and Kit Kat became official, bringing with it plenty of improvements to things like Google+ sign-in, Wallet, Location services, and more.
Today, via the Android Developers Blog, Google announced the rollout of Google Play Services 4.1, which offers developers more and better tools to make compelling apps.
Blogging is a cruel mix of trying to come up with interesting content and struggling with the software to make a good site. For people who don't want to partake in epic battles against WordPress but need a little more control than Tumblr has to offer, Weebly provides a simple drag-and-drop interface and professional templates to quickly build a great looking platform on which to share your thoughts. While not as popular as the aforementioned WordPress (Alexa #21) and Tumblr (Alexa #32), Weebly (Alexa #301 and Google PageRank of 8) claims to have over 12 million users and is a force to be reckoned with.
Android Police is live at NVIDIA's 2013 CES press conference at the Palms Hotel, primed and ready for what we can only assume will include the announcement of the next generation of Tegra mobile processors. Check out the ScribbeLive widget below for our coverage as it happens, starting at 7:45PM PST (that's 10:45PM EST).
Update: Samsung amended the picture and took out the 64GB option. Was it included prematurely or just a mistake? We'll have to wait and see.
Hurricane Sandy may have stopped Google's live announcement of the new Nexus family (and Android 4.2) yesterday, but it didn't stop Google from releasing a truckload of information on its upcoming products online, including the Nexus 10.
The Nexus 10, in case you missed it, is Google's new 10" slate (in partnership with Samsung) that has an incredible 2560x1600 (~300ppi) display, Samsung's latest and greatest A15 dual-core processor at 1.7GHz, and 2GB RAM.
Hey, did you guys know there's an election coming soon? I know, it's been a pretty low-profile thing, but it's true. Of course, we want to be a well-informed electorate, right? One source of information that should probably be watched to achieve that goal is the White House. Today, the administration of the most powerful office in the country revealed a newly-designed app that will allow mobile users to watch live presidential events, search its stable of blog posts, videos, and press releases, and in a forward-thinking move, makes all this content available on tablets.
One of the highlights of Samsung's Galaxy Note II announcement at IFA yesterday was the increased functionality carried by the device's hallmark S Pen stylus. The Note II's version of the Pen, besides being "ergonomically designed for the perfect grip," allows users to quickly clip, crop, and edit screen content, adding further illustration and handwritten keyword recognition. The Pen now also features a unique "hover" functionality, whereby an app can recognize that the Pen is near the screen and react accordingly with contextual menus or other activities.
Welcome to day 2 of Google I/O. Day 1 was pretty busy, but who knows - maybe today is going to be even more exciting. Google TV updates? Chrome? We'll see in just a few minutes. Join us in the live blog below:
Here we are, in the front row of the first keynote at what is probably the most exciting conference of the year - Google I/O. This time around we're using a slightly different, and I think much better solution compared to CoverItLive - ScribbleLive. ScribbleLive lets us do all the things CiL didn't - most importantly, we can finally start to actually enjoy managing the reporting side of the live blog as opposed to fighting it.
