Several HBO series, including The Sopranos and The Wire, will begin appearing on Amazon Prime Instant Video starting May 21.

Very exciting development. Hopefully a similar deal with Netflix isn't too far away. I'm about due for my 3rd go around of The Wire.

I'm hoping to add translation support for the Link Bubble 1.1 update. If you're fortunate enough to be multilingual and can help out here, I'd be immensely grateful :)

Has anyone volunteered to do a Norwegian translation yet? If not, I can help out.

The execution is what matters most.

+Alex Slater Microsoft didn't use OpenSSL, and have their own implementation. Windows XP users should be unaffected.

Another quick Link Bubble straw poll, this time regarding the animating loading dots that appear on a bubble that I removed in the 1.0.4 beta*

And before some people ask, no, this is not something I deem worthy of creating a setting for because this: http://imgur.com/m9wxQ7V

Always keep the animating dots (as per build 1.0.3 and before).

Action Launcher 2.0.4 is out now.

Nothing much to shout about with this release feature wise (unless you love you some reorganized Settings and stability fixes). The bulk of the work was under the hood to convert the project to Gradle and prepare it for future updates.

Grab it from the Play Store now.

Link Bubble 1.1 is out now

The big news with the 1.1 update is that all non-Pro users are granted a 24-hour trial of Link Bubble Pro's premium features. There's also initial translation support and some much requested usability enhancements. 

Full change log:
• NEW: Add a 24 hour trial of Link Bubble Pro's features for all non-Pro users*.
• NEW: Translation support for Czech, Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, German, Italian, Russian and Thai. If you'd like to help with translations, you can do so here: http://goo.gl/QCtT8T
• NEW: Add option to change the User Agent.
• NEW: Add "Close bubble" option to overflow menu.
• NEW: Add "Stop" option to overflow menu when a webpage is loading.
• IMPROVEMENT: If the "Vibrate on touch" system setting is disabled, the app will not trigger any vibrations.
• IMPROVEMENT: Add a Close button on the upgrade/inform popup.
• IMPROVEMENT: The FAQ's translation question now redirects to the community Link Bubble translation project.
• BUG FIX: Many stability fixes.

* Fair warning: at this point I consider this trial an experiment. If conversion to Pro increases as a result and I don't get impaled with pitch forks when the trial period expires, I'll keep with this method. If it doesn't, I'll go back to the previous method. See the in-app FAQ for details on how this trial period works.

+Chris Lacy Any plans for a whitelist of apps which never send links to Link Bubble? It's rather tiresome having the Send To Chrome option in Pocket send to LB, forcing me to then Open In Chrome from LB. If I'm looking at links in Pocket then I've already saved them for later, and that later is now!

For my money, this use case right here remains Glass's 'killer app'.
 
Not so random thought for those considering whether or not Glass is for them today. Being a dad #throughglass  means I don't have to stop what I am doing to grab a funny picture. I don't have to stop teaching, playing, or enjoying what is happening right in front of me. I couldn't have taken these photos with anything else I own, because I was too busy holding frozen yogurt, fighting with my son, being a mountain for my daughter to climb, or being that jerk who says "quit hitting yourself" over and over again.

Just when glasses were falling out of fashion with the invention of laser eye surgery... Think I'll hold out for Google implants.
