New watch feature: new episode notifications now have the same Play and Play Later actions, just like the interactive notification on the phone. Previously, the notification on the watch just showed the usual "Open on phone" action, so this is an extension to provide further actions.

To control update notifications (or disable them), open Update Alerts in settings. You may also mute watch notifications for certain apps from the Android Wear app on your phone.

This is is in addition to the regular media playback controls on the watch, and the episode browser/launcher app which can be launched by saying "open player fm". Note that it was updated today (v2.0.15) with faster phone sync and pull-to-refresh restored.

This is a pretty impressive evolution in drone technology.

Starting today, you can mirror exactly what you see on your Android phone or tablet straight to the TV with Chromecast. Whether you’re sharing your family photos from your phone, surfing the web, or searching for your next vacation destination, Chromecast makes it easy to enjoy your favorite entertainment on the big screen TV. Look out for the 1.7 update of the Chromecast app (goo.gl/4ugCaG) on Google Play store to use this new feature, and head to the help center (goo.gl/IKcK3m) to learn more.

I've just listened to La Roux - In For The Kill - Skream's Let's Get Ravey remix. 290 others have too. Fun fact: 7 people love this song & 0 people dislike it. Check out Soundwave for more!

Cute ideas in here about what do with GPS trail data (like what comes out of your smartphone or fitness smartwatch).  I particularly like the ideas around showing abnormalities (like particularly busy days) and highlighting short trips where walking might be an option.

The article (linked below) gives a quick summary. More details in the recently presented paper: http://www.depstein.net/pubs/depstein_dis14.pdf

This is research work underlying the Moves app. The startup which did the Moves app was recently acquired by Facebook.

How to run a hackathon.

Finally, this is the big one, the super-detailed, 'How to run a hackathon.' post. This is 3/4 in my series on the recent  Pre-I/O Google Glass Hackathon that I ran. I included absolutely all of the information, data, and thoughts that I could think to include on this. I hope people find it useful.

If you're going to plan a hackathon, or a large, long event, you might consider this a good starting point, with some good advice. Sorry it's ridiculously long.

After experiencing the hair,raising experience of trying to use Londons bicycle 'superhighways' this week, I hope such a scheme succeeds.

It's crazy enough that it might just work!

Story
Tagline
A chaotic neutral point of view
Introduction
I make things (code/photos/words) and wave my arms around a lot when I talk.

I'm a Developer Advocate at Google in the Google+ Developer Relations team. In general I work on the stack of protocols, standards and APIs that power the social web. In practice that means I look after the Google+ APIs and +1 button with a focus on Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

I'm also the co-author of O'Reilly's "Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the aspiring software craftsman" and you can find out more about that book here: http://www.oshineye.com/books.html

I'm also part of the small team behind http://developerexperience.org/ which is an attempt to see if we can successfully apply the techniques of user experience professionals to products and tools for developers. We call it Developer Experience or #devexp for short.

I believe that identity, like truth, is performed rather than expressed so here are some links that may help you understand who I am and what I do:
I help run a handful of Google+ Pages:
I participate in a handful of public Google+ Communities:
There are others but they're either private or delightfully obscure.

You can see recordings of various talks/presentations I've given: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4029784577E43D1E and you can read about the tools I use: http://adewale.oshineye.usesthis.com/

Good hotel despite the confusing elements of surrealist design that turned finding doors and walking down the stairs into a challenge.

Their tiramisu is a delight. It's easily the best I've had in California. It's light, fluffy and has just the right kind of creamy texture. Skip their hot chocolate. It has the consistency of weak tea.

This place is a victim of circumstances. It's a a banker-oriented brand that's opened up a branch in the hipster part of town. That means they're surrounded by superior establishments with superior menus, prices, brands and atmospheres. Here's the problem, this place is bland. So bland! They have all the hallmarks of a hipster eaterie (for example regular live music and a brunch menu) but it's a pale imitation that overlooks little details. For a start the breakfast menu doesn't have enough variety. When The Book Club and The Breakfast club have branches nearby with a wider variety of better and cheaper food this is a problem. Both of those places also provide free wifi. Smith's doesn't. I had the Blueberry pancakes and they were nice enough but nothing special in an area where restaurants like Shutterbug exist. The building itself is divided into multiple different kinds of restaurants including a grill. Unfortunately there's a branch of Hawksmoor 100 meters down the road so I can't see any reason for eating here. There's nothing especially bad about Smiths and given the way they've crammed it full of tables you're more likely to get a seat here than in any of its neighbours.

Excellent. Easily the best steak I've ever had in London. Good food, friendly service and unpretentious atmosphere.

Great burgers. On par with Byron but not as good as Bukowski Grill. This is mostly due to the freshness of the toppings and other ingredients. However: - you have no control over the burger they give you. They're always well-done and they're not very meaty - the fries are too salty and spiced to death - the queues, the noise and the plastic nature of the environment makes the place seem like a tacky tourist trap - the giant blurbs seem a little desperate especially when (whilst you're enjoying your lengthy and wifi-free time in the queue) you notice that a lot of them are from several years ago and refer to the American branches

Superb little cafe/restaurant. Their "spicy tequila and lime chicken salad" is one of the best things I've eaten. They have free wifi but it has a captive portal. If you happen to arrive on one of the rare sunny days then you can outside and eat your food whilst watching people stroll past the docks.

Avoid! This is especially important if you're visiting the Google Milan office and someone recommends this hotel to you. This place is a 43 minute walk away from the office. You don't want to try doing that in a Milanese summer. You're better off staying at the NH President which is the same price and 3 minutes walk from the office. That one also happens to be 5 minutes from all the local attractions. In short: avoid if you're a Googler or someone who wants to be able to easily visit the local tourist attractions.
