HTC Confirms The All New HTC One (M8) Will Come In Google Play Edition (GPE) Flavor Once Again

The All New HTC One (M8), the phone that's been leaked more than any device in recent history, is going to get officially unveiled later on today at an event in NYC. It is my pleasure to announce that the Google Play Edition, meaning stock Android, now looks to be confirmed and will be joining the Sense variant at some point, hopefully as early as today. While not entirely unexpected, there was a chance that HTC would opt out of the GPE program this time around.

Google Patent Application Shows Multi-Sensor Contact Lenses For Wearable Device Input Via Blinks

"Smart contact lens." Get used to that term, even if it makes you cringe - a new patent from Google indicates that at least someone at Mountain View thinks it's a potentially viable idea. Patent Bolt reports on a Google application to the USPTO for "multi-sensor contact lenses," intended primarily as a method for blinking input or input augmentation for wearable devices, or just electronics in general. (Note: this shouldn't be confused with Google's other contact lenses, announced in January as a medical diagnostic device for diabetics.)

The basic idea is that a number of sensors embedded into a contact lens could be used to detect blinks with incredible accuracy.

Tell Google Search To 'Play Some Music' To Instantly Launch I'm Feeling Lucky Radio

Okay, so that camera voice command Google pointed out the other day wasn't terribly useful, but the new music command is pretty cool. Just pull up voice search in whatever way you prefer, and tell your device to "play some music." That's it – the tunes will flow.

Google Report On The March 17th Outage: 'We Screwed Up Y'all, But It's All Good'

For over a few hours on Monday, several Google services came crashing to a halt. Users all over the world were unable to send messages via Hangouts, engage in video chats, or check Google Voice. Some people trying to create spreadsheets with Sheets were met with 502 errors, and people taking advantage of the multi-player aspect of Google Play Games were also affected. All of this apparently resulted from an oops during a routine hardware maintenance event where the company miscalculated available capacity.

Federal Jury Decides Google Owes SimpleAir $85 Million For Push Messaging Patent Infringement

You can't run a tech company these days without infringing on someone's patents, and if you feel that you're infringee material, the Eastern District of Texas is the place to set up shop. SimpleAir, a Texas-based "inventor-owned technology licensing company," took Google to court over push messaging systems used in Android. Last month a jury found that Google infringed on all five of the asserted claims, leaving the company liable to pay up to $125 million for damages.

[APK Teardown + Download] You Can Try The Android Wear Preview Launcher On Your Device Now - Here's What's Inside

Google blew a lot of minds with its Android Wear announcement yesterday. The ambitious project, which aims to put a specialized version of Android on as many wearables (for now watches) as possible, has been talked about, analyzed, and previewed heavily for the past 24 hours, but there's still more to discuss.

Today, we've got the Android Wear launcher (extracted from the emulator) as it currently exists. This is an early version of the home launcher that you'll see on the Moto 360 and likely other wearable devices coming in the near future.

Google's official Android keyboard has just been updated in the Play Store without a new changelog, and you know what that means. Yes, time to go hunting. Although, the keyboard makes you painfully aware of at least one new feature when you first try to type something.

Huawei Publicly Retracts Plans To Release Dual-OS Android/Windows Device Following Reports Of Asus Doing The Same

Huawei recently shared plans to release a dual-OS Android/Windows device in the US come Q2 of this year. Now, the company has publically stepped back from those words. It didn't provide an explanation, but it did emphasize its "open approach" towards mobile operating systems and a desire to provide "a range of choices for consumers." Most of the Huawei's handsets will continue to run Android, and while Windows Phone still isn't off the table completely, the two platforms won't play along anytime soon.
