The Maru operating system is now live for public consumption, providing a Debian Linux desktop experience for Nexus 5 owners when connected to a display.

Yes. It's a terrible design btw. Each button is 50/50. 12 buttons. At least one is going to be set. The number of combinations isn't great.

What's the deal with "charging rapidly"?
I'm on N preview. My phone showed it once or twice when I first got it. I was using a micro to type C adapter in the car... Finally I got a tronsmart type C charger for the car, now even with the OEM charger I don't get " charging rapidly ".
I don't really care what they call it, my problem is this thing is taking hours to charge. Coming from a mxpe, this is horrible.

I'm getting 2.5A ATM acording to Amper. 
I'm pretty sure that Originally on N I saw Rapid Charging, This is part of why I was confused. 
I got the Car charger, and did a factory Reset the same day. 
I think we might find out that anyone still getting Rapidly Charging, Probably hasn't wiped since the OTA.

Definition of Hacker throughout the years
You know we've all seen the definition of hacking change throughout the years. It really is astounding that someone who updates a friends facebook status is considered a hacker these days.

Sweet. Now just waiting on the album share/edit feature.
 
We have two features that will begin rolling out on Android today:

Helping users free up storage space on their Android device:
On the Settings screen, users will now see a “Free Up Space” button. Clicking on the button will prompt the user to bulk-delete copies of photos that have already been backed up from their device. To prevent device copies from being accidentally deleted, we’re asking users to double-confirm their intent during the ‘Free Up Space’ flow.

Users who are backing up their photos in High quality may now also receive an Assistant card prompting them to bulk delete device copies when they’re nearing the storage limit on their devices (currently only users who are backing up at Original quality receive these cards).

Deleting photos from SD-card enabled devices
We’re rolling out a fix that will allow users on certain SD-card enabled devices to delete photos stored on an SD card. This should prevent the issue of a photo continuing to show up in the Photos view despite being deleted, a frustrating experience for users.

We have one feature that will begin rolling out on the Web on Wednesday:

Downgrade previously uploaded photos from “Original quality” to “High quality”
When users choose to backup their photos and videos to Google Photos, we allow photos to be uploaded in two ways:
“Original quality” (large file, full resolution). These photos count against a user’s Google storage quota.
“High quality” (smaller file, compressed file). These photos don’t count against a user’s Google storage quota.

If a user joined Google Photos and selected the “Original quality’ setting for their photos, but changed their mind, they could have future media backed up in “High quality”. However, for media already backed up in “Original quality” before then, users were in an awkward state: they had no way to downgrade that media to “High quality”.

With this update, users will be able to downgrade previously backed up photos from “Original quality” to “High quality” by visiting photos.google.com/settings from their computer and clicking ‘Recover Storage’.

Same boat here. I keep a Linux box with a Windows VM, more secure to do browsing on chromeOS, then CRD into a Linux box for the other stuff I cannot do via Web (which is very little anymore).

 
I'll tell you one thing that irks me.  Many articles about Chrome OS and Chromebooks make it sound like only newbie computer users would choose a Chromebook.  I've been into computers and even worked in the industry though I don't now since 1982!  I'm expert in Windows, Linux, Mac, BSD.  Yet, my two main computers are a Chromebox and a Chromebook.  I sold a Macbook Pro to get my two current devices and had $200 left over.  I realized that about the only thing I was doing with that expensive Mac was opening Chrome and doing everything on the web.  I moved all my Music and other data to the Cloud back around 2012.  I can write docs, spreadsheets, and slide presentations very easily.  I can produce videos and edit photos very easily also!  ChromeOS was the conscious decision of a very seasoned computer user!!!!!!!!!!

How the rise of the machines starts
If you haven't yet seen it, Atlas, the humanoid robot is now untethered and trying to pick up boxes while some dude with a hockey stick messes with him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVlhMGQgDkY. When AI becomes advanced enough to realize what we do to them, they're going to go Terminator all over us.

Thanks +Aaron Honeycutt for this gif in Hangouts.

Wondering if anyone has had this issue. Got marshmallow update (leaked). Few days into it, most everythibg working great, maybe a bug or two, carryovers from before at that.

Then on Sunday my backlight stopped working, second time this has happened. Fix is reboot.

On the second time Bluetooth stopped working. It says its on but will not show any devices.

Wondering if anyone has had this Bluetooth issue.

Next year they will go away from this. They will claim nearly as good bla-bla-bla... But the truth is people won't need to replace phones as often and sales will fall.
BTW, I love it. Looking at importing the international GSM version moto force.

Will #AndroidMarshmallow shatter the 6 month delay and super late OTA record of #LOLLIPOP to #Motorola #Droid?

Employment
  • Avery Technologies
    Owner, 2008 - present
    I own it and clean the toilets... I do the field work, the in house repairs and the Help desk support. I'm always looking for new and better ways to do things for my customers. I believe the mobile industry is the future and I'm working to bring that in the stores. Still the Technologist.
  • Ames Audio
    Engineer, 2002 - 2004
    Known as the king of squeeze. I could get things where they didn't belong in a car. I was the technologist. I designed circuits to interface steering wheel controls that instead controlled the Air Ride or did something else. I also was the main installer and trouble shooter of the Alarm systems and electronics.
  • Cingular Wireless Llc
    Wharehouse Operations, 2001 - 2002
    I started out as a temp doing filing. Got hired on as a perm/temp to work in the warehouse. Later Politics took me out as I was thrown under the bus by those trying to climb the ladder. I was just trying to do my job. I was across the way from a stereo shop that my friend from Good Guys was doing work at. I turned in my papers that day.

    C.O. Technician. I ran jumpers from here to there. It was a little boring but a good job. I was too young to appreciate it.

  • Bestbuy.com Llc
    Car Audio Installer, 2000 - 2001
    Yes he won me over. He was a well known installer and offered a lot to learn. BestBuy was good. But the lack of custom work left something to be desired. Just an Installer
  • GoodGuys
    Car Audio Installer, 2001 - 2001
    I was hired based off a few photos of things I had done. The Manager then quit for BestBuy a week later, taking the staff with him. All but one. I had to run the show for the next two weeks. I proved my stuff. He came recruiting me soon after. Installer, Lead for some time.
