I was taking a developer survey for the Amazon App Store and came across this question. It made me happy to see that we are one of the answers to this question.

This is a must-watch for any serious Android fan. There's some great stuff in here.

Also, a few hints about what's to come.

Seems that way. I thought it was weird it didn't go on YouTube, but I guess somebody preferred Vimeo.

The feeling of hitting Shuffle on a playlist and immediately getting the very first song.

Brilliance is achieved by conceiving of an idea beyond that of the average mind. Dedication is achieved by passionately defending an idea in the face of criticism by the masses. True greatness is achieved by a willingness to let go of an idea, once it is proven wrong.

Ok, so this one is much more trivial than the previous cases... But really? It's been 7 years and there are still problems with Daylight Savings Time?

It isn't aligned for me. I use stock Android, 4.4.2, on a Nexus 4.

Yer late... But you know I can't stay mad at you.
 
Then did the Google let loose a flood of chocolate-wafery goodness unto its crusaders, instilling renewed life and... photo bundles.

Yay, XE16!!!

Wow, Microsoft just open sourced compilers for C# and VB.Net. That's potentially huge. Plus, the source code is licensed with Apache 2.0, which is pretty forgiving.

Note: This is the same license used by most of AOSP.

Good job, Microsoft

You can tell you're a developer when things like range selection and multi-cursor support in an editor get you excited.

We've just released Android Studio 0.5.2. This release includes IntelliJ 13.1 RC2 (which for example adds multiple selection editing), as well as new lint checks and a number of bug fixes.

For full details, see the release announcement here:

This is my 3rd teardown today, and it was insane (I'm sure I still haven't found everything). In 20 minutes, nothing is going to stop me from getting out of this chair and leaving my house!
 
Updates. So many updates.

You asked in your video about the Google APIs in combination with an x86 image. Google recently began shipping exactly that emulator image. Actually, if you look 40 seconds into your video, the downloadable package appears in the shot. As far as I can tell, it was no more than a couple of days old when you uploaded the video.

Thanks for the note Cody.   I also did notice this right after I recorded the video...  That's good news.   I made one and use it now.

Story
Tagline
I'm a tech geek with flair
Introduction
I write for Android Police and develop software on many different platforms. I'm kind of a jack of all trades that can't pick just one thing to master.

Outside of work, I love to play sand volleyball and watch movies. I'm very interested in style, fashion, food, and flair bartending. I'm kind of into a lot of things, but nobody would be able to tell by seeing how my time is scheduled.
Bragging rights
I have written software that runs on every mobile OS from the last 5 years.
