Wait, who is this Jason guy, never heard a him. (ps big thanks to +JR Raphael for making me feel important by asking me to do this! It was a ton of fun.)
 
A new "How I use Android" profile -- featuring the talented +Jason Howell!

He's basically the Wolf Blitzer of Android broadcasting, only without the cool beard and hilarious name.

That pretty much sums it up. After many an hour chatting with and watching Jason on +All About Android, I was happy to get the chance to quiz the man behind the mic about how he uses Android in his own day-to-day life.

Here's the result:
Brokaw, schmo-kaw: When it comes to Android broadcasting, Jason Howell is the host with the most. Here's how the man behind the mic uses the platform himself.

Try to use Android Pay at CVS:

"Oh that doesn't work. I don't think it ever did. And then I think they just decided to upgrade to the Chip instead. They moved past mobile payments for Chip."

CES has really sucked out any news on awesome new apps releasing right now. Or rather, awesome new apps aren't releasing right now because of CES.

Regardless, I need an awesome new app to review to end this week's Arena with and I'm coming up short.

Any new apps/redesigns to hit the Play Store in the past week or two that you have been diggin?

+Jason Howell​ I downloaded define and I really like it. I just have this one concern. On occasion I have to copy a password from lastpass. Does that mean that it's sending my passwords to their servers?

I just came out of DJ retirement to record this new mix of #techhouse   tunage.

This mix is what's for dinner. Take what you want, but eat what you take. (if this kind of music is your sort of thing)

Google Now reminders are quite simply the best thing about Google Now for me right now.

Don't get me wrong, I love all the directions and times to get places, the news recommendations (though sometimes that's just noise and clutter), weather and all that.

But reminders has improved my ability to get things done.

Case in point, just now, all I had to say (and I wondered if it would actually know what I meant when I said it) was:

"Remind me when I'm at the gym to do a guided meditation."

And it came back with the reminder to confirm, with the location automatically inserted not as "gym" but as the actual gym I go to regularly. Nowhere in Google Now have I ever told it "my gym is this location" in the same way that you can say "my work is this location" and "my home is this location." It knows my gym based on my location history, and therefor knows what I mean when I say "my gym."

That's awesome.

Agree, wish there was a way to share items directly to Reminders, or say something like "OK Google, remind me to read this web page tomorrow morning."

May the Force Pay With You, Always.
 
Last night's show was the first of the new year! Unfortunately, +Florence Ion was absent as she is knee deep in the halls of CES. But +Ron Richards +Jason Howell and guest +Russell Ivanovic were on hand to talk about the new gadget announcements from the show floor, and we also get a little education on the subtleties of Java and Android, discover that Facebook might be degrading your service to test your loyalty, and more.
