About time... someone from the US needs to ship one to me.. the one on the right.
 
It's Play time!

The Google Play editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are now available on Google Play with the latest version of Android. These are definitely my two favorite phones so far (I can't actually choose between the two!).

You can pick one up starting today in the US at http://play.google.com/store/devices.

This really sucks.
 
No paid version of Carbon nor the Tablet version Graphite will ever be released

Twitter is really not as open as it used to be, and not even close to predictable on what they have in plans for us third-party client developers. I've discontinued three twitter clients before, and looking at the timelines and mentions and emails I still get called  thief & crook for discontinuing those apps as they were paid. I offered refunds for every single one of them for two weeks for everyone who bought them on the same month of discontinuation of the apps. I did refund a good number of users. And that was in April 2012(Carbon & Graphite for webOS), and September 2012(Carbon for Windows Phone). 

Last week I announced that I'll pull the plug and remove their API keys and apps will stop working, and now that they are completely dysfunctional I'm getting the same hate emails. 

Releasing a paid app is a great responsibility, we might think a dollar or two or even five are no big deals, but oh boy we're wrong, and with the way Twitter is handling the API for third-party apps, one could never count on the longevity of the app on Market, while my previous apps were discontinued because of low user base in their respective platforms, I won't have such a problem on Android, but the responsibility is great. I don't want to end up getting all kinds of hate mails and call outs for an app that won't even get to live its 100K sales before it gets pirated. And then keep on feeling responsible for an app that won't do me good.

How about all of the work that I've done on the paid version of Carbon that was going to be called Atom6? Or Graphite? It is great loss on my end as I had goals for each one of them. I've put real hard work on each one of them, re-iterated great number of designs and coded things I thought i'd never code. I think it'll be of a bit of consolation to myself to say I learned a lot about Android doing so, I have other apps in plans that are not based on Twitter. I'll use all that there.

I love +Carbon for Android and I'm going to continue working on it as long as I can. Updates are in plans, one for Today. 

I'm drawing a line for myself here +Carbon for Android is the last app I ever make that is a client for another service, hoping I can keep my word on this.

Should students grade their teachers? We're already doing it here. Question is, how do we grade them?

The future of online is scary. Your passwords, no matter how long or clever will not be enough to protect you from hackers.
