To those who have stated that this is a part of Material Design, I can't seem to find the updated icons. I've looked here ( http://www.google.com/design/spec/components/buttons.html) and can't find an example of the share button. Where is it?

Today I used my voice to set a reminder for making bread after it had risen. I used my voice, asked it to remind me to keep making bread in an hour, and it presented me with a card with all the information filled in correctly. Much to my dismay, after I said "Yes" to confirm setting the reminder, the reminder created was set for an hour in the past. I tried this several times and always got the same result. Here's some screenshots of what happened....

Doesn't this happen a little too often? Everything is loaded and then you move too fast for the scanner and end up waiting a minute or two for the inventory to appear.

I know that the general consensus from people who are serious about video editing claim that Macs are the way to go, but does Ubuntu have a competition there? What are some great video editing apps?

Macs now days are PC's with OSX on them. Most of the "pro" video editors are available on PC or Mac. There are plenty of more than capable editing suites for Linux. KdenLive is a great place to start.

What do you think will become of the launcher in the completed version of L?

As I was reading this article (linked below), it became apparent to me that in Material Design, nothing should really erupt and take off. It breaks the "layer" that is created by the screen itself. And that's what the launcher is doing right now.

If material design is about making sure objects behave in a consistent way, then it should be very apparent that the icons should not have the ability to fly from "above" as they do now in the stock launcher. Just like apps can't come flying towards you as they did in KitKat. (Though the sliding up animation felt jarring at first, it makes sense why it was necessary now.)

So, my designing friends, what is a good solution to our Z axis problem?

So I've never done a beta before so I'm not sure what to expect from Google.

Do you think that we're gonna be seeing some updates to the apps/system before L is finally released? Or do you think it's going to be one big update when the day comes?

Thoughts?

There should be updates along way. Expect to see, alpha, beta, and release.

(Running L)

At first I thought it was a lollipop, but when it shuffled around I was sorely mistaken.

When I first opened the animation I saw a ½ eaten ginger bread man.

Google's gone a little crazy, I guess.

I LOVE hangouts so much. I found a fun little thing that the new update does: when typing names, there is a small keyboard icon on the upper tight. Tapping it will switch your keyboard to a numeric pad for easily texting new numbers, since the dialer doesn't have the option to do that.

One complaint I do and will continue to have: if you start typing the name of a contact with a number, selecting that number will not look it up to see he or she is on hangouts. If you copy and paste that # into hangouts it will look it up (or at least give you the option to.) Not to mention...them...but iMessage does this and it gets a really strong adoption rate because of it. Imagine how few people would use iMessage if you had to manually check to see if users had an account?

Can we take a moment to talk about the Google finance app? It was updated in 2013 yet it still seems that Google has yet to follow its own design guidelines.

Let's pretend that both iPads and Chromebooks coated the same.

Even then, do iPads even come close to the utility of Chromebooks? We used them for an English class in a bit of an experiment freshman year. I don't think they we're useful at all.

Thoughts about an educational setting? Are iPads actually good at anything for education besides perhaps recording low quality video?

Just a shame that people who might be interested in a chromebook might stumble on that site thinking they're getting an informed review, not realising Svartling is one of the most Google hating chromophobe's out there.

G+ Suggestions and Feedback  - 
 
I just submitted this feedback to the Google+ team and I wanted to know what you guys think.  This is what I wrote:

The photos experience, in my opinion, has just worsened into a complete mess.

I love AutoBackup, but the way it handles my photos just makes everything feel like a complete mess.  Though I don't plan on losing my phone, I rely on AutoBackup to send my photos to this magical place where they can be retrieved if I need them or get a new phone.  Unfortunately, though, they are lost in this oblivion of confusion.  Here's what I propose:

Keep AutoBackup, but make it something more sophisticated.  Let photos from AutoBackup automatically drop into an album called Camera, or even Nexus 5 camera or whatever.  If I decide to delete a photo from either the web or mobile UI, even directly from the camera, I want it gone.  I don't want to have to go around deleting from the camera and then its double in the cloud.  I want it synced.

And then there's albums.  Though Google+ is doing a great job of minimizing the time spent organizing photos, when I move photos to an album for, let's say, a wedding, I DON'T WANT THEM IN MY FEED!  The All Photos location for Google+ to me should just be a place of unorganized photos that don't really belong in an album.

In short, I would like a completely synced interface.  I want photos to be accessible from any device, but only in one location.  Kind of like with Google Drive.  My dream:

I take a bunch of photos.  They are instantly uploaded to the cloud.  On the web I decide to sort through them and scrap the bad ones, and then I move the rest into a beautiful relevant album.  I then look on my phone and see none of them are in my camera roll any more, and that on my phone all the bad photos have been removed.

Also, the Hangouts album feature is kind of nice, but I would like to see the ability to turn it off, or at least better handle the deletion of the albums.

It would be really cool if I take a bunch of photos that once the photos are uploaded to the cloud that they are deleted from the phone's memory, so that they're just "catched."  Sort of like Google Play Music, or watching YouTube videos.  It would free up a lot of storage...

Thanks and keep working hard,
Adam

If they implemented this suggestion, they would need to be very careful and offer a lot of control over the behaviour (including the ability to change the defaults)... many people rely on the existing loose synchronization...
