Once again, we're teaming up with informIT to give away yet another book. This time around, it's perhaps what you'd call a higher-level book that might be especially useful to those familiar with developing, though it's still accessible to those just starting out. The book: Android Developer's Cookbook: Building Applications with the Android SDK.
Written by James Steele and Nelson To and published in October, 2010, the book spans a whopping 400 pages. Read More

O'Reilly's Android Open conference, which is happening October 9-11, is our first real media sponsorship of an Android event (yay!), and as media partners, we were given 2 free tickets to the event, along with an exclusive 20% off code: AN11AP.
Since nothing would make us happier than giving away the 2 free tickets we've gotten (worth $1295 each) to the most deserving AP readers, I had Cameron immediately fire up the giveaway last week. Read More
Remember our Out of Milk giveaway? Come on, it was like, a few days ago. If you don't, we gave away 25 copies of the Pro version of this absolutely fantastic shopping and pantry organization app to the comments here and on Google+ that we enjoyed the most. Here they are.
From "Klaus with a "K"" in the post comments:
“Honey? We're out of milk. – again!”
When milk is what you need
and shopping warnings were not heed
Then You, my friend, are out of luck
and in the doghouse surely stuck
You need to shop with care
and plan your trip with flair
Can’t decipher illegible doodles
will end you up buying noodles
Don’t bring home salami
knowing everyone eats pastrami
And when all that’s needed is a bit of oats
you better not come rolling home with goats
No listed item should be carelessly omitted
or for sure you will be deemed nit-witted.
Yep, you read that right - we're giving away a DROID BIONIC, and it's not even out yet (well, it will be in less than 24 hours), courtesy of the awesome folks over at Stack Exchange. Why? Because we want to help supercharge Stack's amazing Android Q&A site, Android Stack Exchange.
Android Stack Exchange, a child of the StackOverflow family of sites, is sort of like a dedicated Android Q&A Reddit + Wiki + FAQ for answering all your questions about everything Android. Read More
Many of you have been asking how you could get your hands on those little Android guys that you can usually see hanging out in my reviews. Like these ones here:
I've personally acquired them over time - at Google I/O, the Lookout party, and Dead Zebra itself (no, you can't have mine!), but that's not the only way.
A good friend of ours, Omar Trujillo, also known as @0mie, partnered with us to promote his official vinyl figurines store where you can pick up authentic, Google-licensed, Dead Zebra-designed vinyl Android figurines and give them a new home. Read More

Before I move on to the winner, selected at random, I'd like to thank NVIDIA for providing the prizes. Check out their Tegra Zone on the web or on the Android Market. Read More
Shopping lists. If you're in charge of food for a house with a lot of people, or just like to cook, they are a necessary evil.
How much do I need? Do I have some of that chicken left in the freezer? Is there enough cayenne left in that bottle for this recipe? You get the idea. Out of Milk aims to solve these problems and more - it's an app devoted (almost) solely to the organization of your food purchases and pantry stock. Read More
