Just a typical day at Google... Making doodles. Looking at spaceships. Feeding dinosaurs. Decorating tasty Android treats!

I've been about this for such a long time - couldn't wait until it was finally ready!
 
Got your hands full? You no longer need them to check your news and notifications. Instead you can just flick your wrist to scroll through the stream. #AndroidWear

Kiril shows off three different approaches, that are nonetheless all completely Material.
 
While Material lays out the ground rules / guidelines / suggestions on layering and overall structure of the "chrome" around your content, there's ample space to explore and shape your own take on the same problem space.

In this short GIF you can see the current approaches from three different apps - Mizuu, Philm and Play Store. From the status bar to the toolbar to the hero image to the main content of the page - follow the layering, the parallax, the cross-fades, the translucency and the rest of what happens during the scrolling.

When Maurice started programming, he didn’t have Internet. Or a working laptop.

Free Geek is a good model for addressing this issue. http://freegeek.org

Actually the title should be, "Why you should not be ashamed to read children's books."

I think there's a lot to be said also on why you should be proud to read them, but that's a whole post in of itself.

The entire Narina series is something that no one should be ashamed to read, no matter their age. I am not ashamed to admit that they sit proudly in my library.

I keep seeing us in the geek community throwing around comments about how, "Oh, well I use 23 petabytes of data each month because I use my $30 unlimited T-mobile plan to host a bittorrent server and use VoIP." OK, I get that is not uncommon in our world, but maybe you aren't the target audience for Fi then? A smartphone plan for $20 to $50 a month for light data users that have access to WiFi? That didn't really exist in the US wireless market before. It is progress.

April 2015 Material Design Spec Update

Here on the #materialdesign team at Google, we’re always listening to community feedback and looking for ways to broaden and expand the specification to better fit the needs of designers everywhere. Today we’re publishing an update to google.com/design/spec that draws on extensive conversations we’ve had with designers and developers over the past few months. The update includes 7 new sections, as well as refinements to content in existing sections.

Some highlights:

Data tables: guidance on presenting data sets, particularly in desktop products
Units and measurements: a description of the different units used in material design, including guidance on using density-independent pixels (DPs)
App structure: suggestions for top-level navigation in your app
Component sticker sheet for After Effects to help streamline your motion design workflow
Floating action buttons now have their own section, with added guidance on behavior and transitions
• Updated guidance on Typography, Cards, Dialogs, Tabs and Scrolling.

For all the gory details, check out the What’s New section in the spec: goo.gl/3aB3xM

@MatiasDuarte+MatiasDuarte kind of out of the blue - where can i find examples of the cute cartoon people in the onboarding screens for stock android apps circa 4.4.4? (especially hangouts). if i remember right, some were on cityscape backdrops. haven't been able to find screencaps of these anywhere

All the LOLs.
The author recalls actual words uttered to her by sexist male colleagues in the tech sector.

As a women i wouldnt really raise and eyebrow if i was asked  these questions i would just smile but I would just secretly think that you are a dick. There are a alot women who smile get on with there work but secretly think that some of their Male co workers are just dicks. And i say some because i have had the pleasure of working with real great male collegues and some really bad female ones. I personally dont want to work in a office where every guy is on tender hooks before he says anything and i hope that people have their own personal filter and they know when something is off.

For iOS-using friends, Google Calendar is now (finally!) available on Apple devices. 

Finding it in the App Store is a bit tricky with the current ranking, but here's a direct link:

Please bring Google Keep to iOS. I love both my IOS and Android devices. And Hey, Google Fit wouldn't hurt.

This is not a sit down place it's just a counter, but its some of the best fried oysters around. Order them and eat them quick while they're still sizzling! Fries and shrimp are also yummy but I just go for two plates of the oysters just for me!
