Very excited to finally announce this! Game on.
 
Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out developer.android.com/wear to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.

1Q84 got super repetitive and too many loose ends (even by Murakami standards!)

This is the most responsive and most effortless free drawing app I've ever used. Worth a look.

Seriously, be kind to my phone. K thx bye.
 
Going to Google I/O this year? I'm giving a talk on performance, and how apps can "Do More With Less."

Faster and lighter is better, especially on mobile devices with limited resources. Learn advanced techniques to optimize for CPU, RAM, and I/O efficiency, and best practices for using JNI and SQLite.

https://developers.google.com/events/io/sessions/gooio2012/103/

I talked a few years ago about battery life (all of which still applies today on Android) and this year I'll be going deeper and broader.

We worked with Buck TV, Antfood Creative Audio and Fraunhofer to create this cool and super cute demonstration of Surround Sound  for #Nexus7  

The demo is best experienced on your new Nexus 7 (and Nexus 10 after the Android 4.3 update) in Google Play Movies, over Speakers or Headphones. Enjoy it again in the Settings menu, under 'Play Demo'!

Ice Cream Sandwich won the Gold Prize for best platform experience at Parsons' 2012 User Experience Awards! Way to go team!

Thanks to Parsons for hosting a great event and thanks to IXDA, NYC UPA, and NYC CHI. We need more celebrations of UX like this!

I was wondering if/when the Android team was going to address the People App and why Google Contacts cannot support contact images above 96x96 resolution, but the People App supports 256x256.. Makes it frustrating to see pixelized images on the beautiful Android 4.0 OS... :-\
