LG responded to concerns over corrosion of the G Watch charging pins by making a few tweaks with the KMV78Y update. Now the same build is rolling out to the Samsung Gear live, which as far as I'm aware, doesn't have the same charging pin issues. How curious.

Google Brings Street View To 36 Universities Across The US And Canada

Street View has come to 36 universities across the US and Canada. As we approach the start of another academic year, students and their parents (and everyone else) now have the option to get to know campuses by taking a virtual tour. The list is admittedly not comprehensive, but it contains beautiful views of Georgetown University, the University of Miami, and the University of Regina, to name a few.

Though Google explicitly points out the three universities above in its announcement, it has provided a list of others so that we don't have to go through the effort of hunting for these campuses ourselves.

How To Fix Missing Home And Recents Buttons, And Notification Shade That Refuses To Pull Down After Android Update

There is a really annoying bug in Android that makes your Home and Recents buttons disappear and prevents the notification shade from working. It only happens after flashing an OS update without wiping, but since I've now run into this issue at least 3 times after updating my Nexus devices, and it's a pain to find any info on how to fix it online, it's time for a quick post.

Specifically, I just flashed the updated LPV81C L preview build on top of LPV79 (again, I did it without wiping data - just open the flash-all script and remove "-w" to do so) and observed the Nexus 5 boot into this:

Google Posts Updated Android L Preview Images (LPV81C) For Nexus 7 (Razor) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead)

The Android L release is the first time Google has offered a developer preview of an upcoming version of the platform, so no one knew how it would handle things. Would there be updates?

Google Releases Google Fit Preview SDK, Opens Google Fit Developers Community

At Google I/O, we heard a little bit about Google Fit - Google's renewed effort at quantified, managed health data. We heard that multiple partners had signed on and got a taste of what Google Fit would be able to accomplish, but beyond that details were a little hazy.

We were however told a preview SDK would be made available in "coming weeks," (a dreaded phrase to any Google user) and today that promise has been fulfilled.
