Is anyone seeing the Ultra HD (4k) option in Netflix with their Nvidia Shield The TV? I have mine connected to a 4k TV and am running v1.2.

Also keep in mind that you need to be on the highest Netflix subscription tier to be able to see the UHD content.

Meet Daisy, a 7 month old German Shorthair Pointer and Pit Bull mix that Sara and I have been fostering for the last few months.  She's a great dog, and loves laying around and playing with Ohana, but needs a forever home.

Anyone in the greater Chicago area looking for a new family member should definitely check her out.

Another great Podcast to check out!
 
I made a podcast! 

+Karl Smith was kind enough to join me as the guest on the inaugural episode. In an unsurprising turn of events, Google I/O '15 was the topic of conversation.

We of course dig into the Android M announcements, as well as Google Photos, Now on tap, Cardboard and more. I also talk a bit about what it's like to attend I/O in person, and touch on what we didn't see that I was hoping to.

I'm clearly a total noob at this process, so please send any and all feedback my way so I might do better next time :)

Fun tip of the day. Go to Google.com and type "Set an Alarm" and it will instantly find the latest smartphone you're using, and let you remotely set an alarm on your Android smartphone or tablet.

Set an alarm, send a note, send directions and more all do the same wonderful trick. #themoreyouknow

This is awesome!
 
Someone asked me today how to add ink ripple¹ touch feedback to an image without having to add additional views to your hierarchy which would hurt performance or memory use.  Here's a couple of approaches: 

1. Wrap the drawable in a RippleDrawable² before setting it on the ImageView:

Drawable image = …
RippleDrawable rippledImage = new RippleDrawable(ColorStateList.valueOf(rippleColor), image, null);
imageView.setImageDrawable(rippledImage);

2. Extend ImageView and add a foreground attribute to it (like FrameLayout has³).  See this example⁴ from +Chris Banes of adding it to a LinearLayout.  If you do this then make sure you pass through the touch co-ordinates so that the ripple starts from the correct point:

   @Override
    public void drawableHotspotChanged(float x, float y) {
        super.drawableHotspotChanged(x, y);
        if (foreground != null) {
            foreground.setHotspot(x, y);
        }
    }

I prefer the second approach as you can declaratively set a ripple drawable as the foreground asset in your layout and not have to worry about adding it once the image loads, somewhat simplifying your code and playing nicely with image loading libs like Picasso.  The first approach can work well in combination with Palette to set a ripple color derived from the image.
