Saw it coming :P
In a deal that many saw coming, Microsoft just announced that it's acquiring Nokia's devices and services business for more than $7 billion in cash.

Hangouts Remote Desktop: tech support with a personal touch

For those of you who play tech support for friends and family, there’s now a Hangouts app to make things easier -- powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop. 

Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you’re both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.

To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop. 

Let us know what you think, and please keep the feedback coming!

It's not enough to just bring geeks into government—bureaucracies have to learn to encourage collaboration and flatten the hierarchy, too.

This week on Android Design in Action, after some technical hiccups, +Adam Koch and I ran through a demo of the Google I/O 2013 Android App on a 4" and 10" screen, covering some of our favorite design-related items in this year's app. Thanks to the ever-patient +Anirudh Dewani for helping getting us back up and running so quickly!

After the app demo, we went into shallow-dives (nice one, Adam!) on sharing content and fullscreen UIs, covering appropriate affordances for sharing content, as well as the different fullscreen modes (low profile, hide navigation) and some examples of apps that use them well.

Also, we didn't mention it on air, but +Nick Butcher couldn't join this week, as he was busy hanging out with Android developers in Italy (lucky!)

As always, the slides are attached to this post, and you can find the recording on YouTube here: Android Design in Action: I/O App + Sharing + Fullscreen UIs

"A tongue has no bones,but it's already strong enough to break a heart,and we can't take back the words we've spoken or heal the wounds we've made, so be careful with your words."

Triple Filter Test story. --- One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."

"Triple filter?" asked the man.

"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?"

"No, on the contrary ...".

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, even though you're not certain it's true?".

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued." You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really..."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"
Have you ever tried living up to it? Do you believe people can?

Well.. Don't just sit there! Share this lesson! this is a good one!
