I have released an update of my QuickWatch app for all lovers of +Kodi, +OpenELEC and +LibreELEC:

QuickWatch tells you which TV episode to watch next on your Kodi device. It also works with OpenELEC, LibreELEC and XBMC devices. It groups/sorts all TV shows in the following categories: - Episodes that you started watching but did not finish yet. - New episodes of TV shows where you already started watching a season (S0xE0y). - First episodes of new seasons of TV shows you have watched before (S0xE01). - First episodes of TV shows you have neve...

"This information highlights a hypocrisy on Apple’s part, revealing how much the company indirectly and directly profits from the Google ad business that it criticizes"
Earlier this evening, the Oracle vs. Google lawsuit revealed Android's revenues and profits for the first time. The same case has now revealed that Google paid Apple $1 billion in 2014 as part of i...

I've often made that argument: It's funny to hear Apple criticize Google for selling their users' data. Google doesn't sell that data they monetize it by linking it to ad partners. Apple on the other hand is the one who literally sells data they have in their stewardship to 3rd parties (in this case to Google)

I'm really annoyed by the fact that the new Android emulator immediately runs out of storage space: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=75141

I guess I'll stick with Genymotion for now...

Did the app crash? That was intentional!

Yeah... right...

I have to remember that excuse! #rollseyes

Well, facebook isn't installed on my phone anymore. And I know some other users who removed it as well.

After months of hard work, Mobile Vikings has released a brand new Android app: "Viking Talk". The app allows you to make phone calls over your Internet connection (3G, 4G or Wi-Fi).

The original idea was to reuse a lot of functionality of the existing Viking App but it quickly turned out to be quite problematic. The architecture of the existing app was too monolithic to allow code reuse. Instead I decided to write Viking Talk from scratch using the latest and greatest design guidelines (Android Design Support Library helps a lot) and frameworks (RxJava is awesome).

Next steps: integrate some of the new modular/testable components into the regular app.

If you also want a modern solid Android app, contact me. I can help you ;)

Looks interesting for cloud people in Belgium.
 
Hi all, interested in the cloud on Google Cloud Platform?! A new style of GDG is rolling out world wide GDG Cloud. Next week the Netherlands will do the premiere, but we're not far behind.

Our first kickoff is next month and will cover Big Data. We'll try to start each meetup with a use-case followed by a bit more in depth presentations.

We want to make it accessible for everyone interested in the cloud. Interested, join our plus group ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103970341858666773120 ) and come to our first meetup.

Hope to see you... 
A few week after the global kickoff we’re proud to present the incarnation of the Belgian chapter of Google Developers Group Cloud GDG Cloud Belgium will focus on the technology around the Google Cloud Platform. We will show off the technology but also present the use cases build onto the platform. Kickoff For our first meetup we’ll have a packed agenda and will focus on Big Data. We’ll start of with a customer use-case of how Vente-Exclusiv...

The change of venue is.... interesting. It seems to be an outdoor facility. Why? Hopefully that weather will be better than during the 2015 edition.
 
Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! 2016 is going to be a special year for us -- we held our first developer day 10 years ago at the Googleplex. To celebrate our 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, we’ll be hosting I/O in our backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. We’ll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details.
