Meet Cameron D'Ambrosio. He's 18 and lives in a small town near Boston. He talks a lot of smack on Facebook and wants to be a rapper. Oh, and he's being held without bail as a terrorist for ... WHAT??!

My Java class needs beta testers!

If you have an Android-based device running Honeycomb/ICS/Jelly Bean (earlier versions will work, but the interface is...suspect), and don't mind providing feedback, visit the page below and sign up to be a beta tester!

The general purpose of the app is that you can track items that you'd like to have - through taking photos, searching the web, or scanning a barcode - and then export that list of items when someone asks you what you'd like for your birthday, Christmas, etc. I guess you could track things that you'd want to buy for other people, too, but what fun is that?! :)

Yes, there are bugs - that's why it's a beta version, but I'm really proud of the hard work put forth by +Carter Benge  Aaron Rapp, +Roberto Rodriguez, Lucas Simm, and Christa Sprinkle. Great work, guys!

Is it just me, or is it (nearly?) impossible to affect the mute state of the microphone while in a call from an Android app? Hmm...Why isn't there a permission that tells the end user that the app can perform certain telephony functions, so one knows the risks before installing?

It seems that they've made it impossible to do this type of thing using the SDK. I've managed to end a call using some Reflection, but it's definitely not The Right Way and is quite ugly.

Does anyone have a good argument for why muting the mic in-call is such a serious no-no? I'm open to being persuaded. Really.

+Android Developers , would you care to comment? Just looking for some logical justification; I think I'm missing it!

Well, Duke lost the game, but it was a great game to watch! Plus, I got to see +Patrick Reynolds and +Kristina Killgrove afterwards - doesn't that make the entire trip a 'win'?

I'm making a temporary(?) switch to chrome on all of my supported devices. Will it stick? The jury is still out.

Any tips on great extensions/plugins/etc?

I switched to Chrome about two years ago when Firefox got buggy and slow. I've loved it, but you're probably a much more advanced user than me. I don't even do any extensions. Gasp!
