LIstening to this album is quite literally like I just stepped into a DeLorean and hit 88 miles per hour, transporting me back in time to my younger self in San Francisco during the year 2000.

I kind of need to turn it off. I'm having flashbacks. Help me.

I'm sure it bends, cause I saw it bend... But will it blend?

Yeah... I'm pretty sure if it bends, it blends.
This week's +All About Android had a truly flexible phone! Pretty neat stuff though in the early stages to be sure.

+Ron Richards and +Jason Howell were joined by +Michael Ludden to discuss changes to the Google Play Store policy for developers, the Google Store for hardware sales, Nintendo's mobile phone gaming aspirations, and much more.

Last night's +All About Android with not one but two awesome guests!

+Koushik Dutta and +Myriam Joire joined +Ron Richards and myself and we had a lot to discuss:

Cyanogen's $80 million in funding, Microsoft is developing software that converts Android Phones to Windows 10, Hands-on review of the HTC One M9, Tag Heuer moves into smart watches, the lack of customization in Android Wear, Pony Express, and more.

Tonight's +All About Android should be enlightening to say the least.

+Koushik Dutta and +Myriam Joire join +Ron Richards and myself.

Android is firmly in the crosshairs in this week's big news: Cyanogen Inc's $80 million plan to bypass Google, and Microsoft's plan to turn Xiaomi Android devices into Windows 10 devices...

Also, Myriam has the HTC One M9 in person, Android Auto releases, Amazon Unlocked, Smart Lock on-body detection, TAG Heuer's high end Wear device, and much more.

Repurposing old Android hardware

What apps do you use to put old hardware to use once again? Dash cams, dedicated music players, security cameras, baby monitors, honestly... I'm looking for creative ways to make old hardware useful!

Android Auto finally gets its release and sure enough, the app only runs in tandem with supported head units ie not in standalone mode on the phone itself.

When Gina Trapani and I were given the demonstration of Android Auto at last year's Google IO, I specifically asked the guy showing it off if stand alone mode would be possible and he said yes. (Gina refers to that conversation here at 1h0m17s:

So ok then. I'm bummed and can only hope that stand alone mode of some sort becomes a reality in the future. I'm not saying it isn't in the cards, ultimately, cause I don't know that answer. But I will say that this is an incredibly useful tool for drivers, whether it exists on a secondary screen or whether it exists on the phone you already have mounted to your dash.

Hoping it happens. Crossing fingers. Or did the guy that gave us the tour actually not know and just threw that answer out there?

Android Auto:

More cool gadgets in the car means more distractions but I guess its what people want.
