Hey all!

A few questions about the watch from a fan-just-turned-contributor:

* How well does Google Maps work on that small screen? Will it be easy to navigate with the TrueSmart on a bike?

* Can you create a wireless 3G hotspot from it?

* Will/could there be a mode where you say, "What time is it," or "OK Smart, navigate home" and the watch starts up, without you having to press any button, and shows the time or (in the second case) runs the last part in Google Voice Actions?
This would be perfect for when you can't use your hands (e.g. when you're on your bike).

* Will non-developer (pledgers) get access to the SDK?

* What temperature range does it work in? Will it stand up to winter just south of the Polar Circle?

* What spare parts are included?

* What water depth is max supported - would it survive the Mariana Trench?

* How good is the built-in speaker? Is it good for anything else than voice?

* What about supporting microUSB to headphone adapters (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Headset-Adapter-Micro-Female/dp/B003W057FS), if at all possible, for people who want to use their hard-earned wired headphones?

The device is IP67 rated, which means it can survive being in water up to 1m deep for 30 minutes.

Does anyone know how being in different countries affects the ease of use of sharing a #Netflix account between two people?

Will it work, and what will happen if one of us tries streaming while the other one watches something?

After three days on a bike trip with maybe an hour of heavy rain, my Galaxy Nexus won't boot!

I kept it close to me the whole time, in a back pocket between a sweaty back and a quite heavy backpack.

The only response I've been able to get from it is a "this device malfunctioned" error in Windows when I plug it in.

Is there any way to find out what the problem is without sending it to a service center?

EDIT: Never mind, it worked again after an hour of charging. :)

Anyone got the Drive googledrivesync exe?
My direct download from Google's servers says it's eight days until it finishes, even though it's not even a megabyte!

Now would be an excellent time to use http://burnbit.com/ (I'll post a torrent when (if :() I get it)!

Edit: Got it, just had to relaunch the download. If you have trouble with the official download, try this (not BurnBit, but I don't expect that much traffic): https://www.dropbox.com/s/41ugv4rgdvn07uu/googledrivesync.exe

Does anyone know how to wipe the init.d file in Android?

Just by accident (and a bit great deal of n00bishness), I set the maximum CPU frequency on the Galaxy Nexus to 350 MHz (i.e., the lowest frequency).

Now I need to wipe the init.d file, because otherwise the phone does not get past the first and a half boot animation cycles, but I don't know how to do that...

As long as you get the right image for your hardware (maguro), it doesn't really matter. I'd just go for the most recent release.

Does anyone know how to turn off subtitles when Chromecasting Netflix to your TV? I can't figure it out!

the subtitles are usually listed as "cc" or something like that on the remote control of the TV or LED screen. Play around with the buttons on the remote control, it's what works for me.

I want to help change the world.

I'm looking for a non paid volunteer project in the field of renewable energy and sustainable development, suitable for a fresh High School CS graduate with an eager interest in learning more about the climate crisis we face and a will to stop that crisis from happening.
I’ve read a great deal about it, and chosen to become, a vegetarian after finding out the environmental impacts of living like I did.

Know someone who could use a helping hand, or some other way for me to find a position? Shout it out, I’ve got things to learn!

For more about me, see jakob.co/resume.

Have a Galaxy Nexus, and mind helping out a fellow G+er in need?

It would be great if someone could tell me where the file init.d is located.

Is there any way to search for init.d through adb, or do you know any other way to remove this dreadful monster of a file?

When this gets ported to the Galaxy Nexus, I'll be the first in queue for one of these docks!
