What Developers Need To Know About Android L

Google is taking a different tact for its newest version of Android than it has in the past. Instead of announcing and releasing an official version of the operating system, it has released a developer preview—dubbed “L”—thus giving developers and manufacturers time to get ready for it before its official released. Dave Burke, Google’s head […]

Google Cardboard Offers Virtual Reality On The Cheap—Really Cheap

Google doled out free smartwatches running Android Wear at its I/O 2014 developer event today, but that’s not all. The company also handed out … cardboard.

Android TV: Google Wants To Own Your Living Room (Again)

The Internet Of Things Will Need Millions Of Developers By 2020

It’s standard to size a market by the number of widgets sold, but in the Internet of Things, which numbers sensors and devices in the billions, widget counts don’t really matter.

How To Host A Website With Raspberry Pi

Never underestimate the miniscule, $35 Raspberry Pi. Although it’s marketed as an experimental machine aimed at helping you learn to code, there’s nothing entry-level about its capabilities.  In a pinch, you can even use your Raspberry Pi as a Web server.

Bontrager Race Lite Hard-Case Tires and Specialized Airlock tubes

(Quick terminology note: tires are the stiff protective shells on the outside; tubes are the air-filled Escher condoms that go inside the tires.) I’m a bicycle commuter and hate flat tires. Some people adopt a Zen-like attitude toward them, but not me. I’ve never gotten fast at fixing them. They always happen at a bad […]

A Quick Survey Of Tech Giants Reaffirms Just How White And Male They Are

If we’ve learned anything from the numbers tech companies like Google, Facebook and Yahoo have revealed about their workforce diversity over the last month, it’s that there clearly aren’t enough women and minorities working in technology.

I use a small camera (Cisco Flip) to take video. It’s great for what I do, except small amounts of wind cause a lot of noise. That’s where Micromuff helps. You have a small Velcro patch that glues to your camera, and a wind muff that attaches to the Velcro. I’ve been using MicroMuff Original […]

Amazon CTO: Big Data May Also Lead To Big Problems

The machines have taken over; the future of the Internet of Things is already here. Across a dizzying array of applications, machines are generating copious quantities of data, most of it being pushed to the cloud for storage, processing and analysis.

No, Google Isn’t Going To Kill Its Nexus Devices

Rumors of the demise of Google’s Nexus line of “pure Android” devices have been greatly exaggerated. When Google launches the official release of the new version Android L later this year, expect a new Nexus device as well.
