BOOO, #GoogleAllo
Yet another messaging app from Google that does not rotate in landscape mode.
At least with Hangouts, the app was only stuck in portrait view when in List View. When tapping on an individual message, the app would rotate.
Nothing rotates in Allo. I hope that changes. Yes, some of us use our devices in Landscape mode throughout the day!

I understand that HTC is making the Pixel, but I was hoping the device wouldn't have a hardware home button on it! Google Imprint reader is on the back, software home button displays at the bottom of the screen. A hardware Home button is ridiculous. Should have put a speaker there instead...

Please let these images be wrong!

I don't think those are correct at all.

Amazon is such a time-saver! Over the weekend, I had a very busy schedule and was doing a lot around the house. As I thought of something we needed, I reached for my phone, placed the order and was done with it. Now this week, all sorts of stuff is arriving, and I didn't miss a beat!

It's also dangerous because it's so easy to impulse purchase something.

I look forward to Assistant being integrated in all parts of the Android experience like this! Yes, this info can be seen from a routine Google Search, but the Assistant integration is where the differentiation will begin.

Oh, to have all this functionality with Google Glass! Oh, it'll be coming, in a future version!!!

Currently I have Hangouts as the default for Project Fi. Has anyone set Allo to handle messaging as the default?

+Toby Kraft XMPP has the specs for routing as well messaging. It's more extensible. I would either 'wrap' an SMPP gateway in an XMPP protocol layer. Both are XML type protocols anyway. Granted it's been years since I've read through either spec, but the bits are all there, it's just glue. The plus side is that you may be able to cheat and develop a more robust system on the phone side that actually tunneled XMPP over SMS for times when the signal was low on the data side. All it requires is for a 'proxy' endpoint to live in front of the actual device on the Fi side. I wrote an entire 'push' notification system across all the carriers for the Palm platform 'back in the day'. At that point it was 'on the cheap' and using the SMTP/SMPP bridge that most all carriers have to do the routing. I wanted to go SMPP but the carriers wanted $$$ to set that up. There was a handshake from the Palm back to the server (back over SMS->SMTP) so that if the importance of the notification was high, it would retry the send X times until it got a confirmation. At the time at least SMS was horribly unreliable in a rather uniformly manor across all the carriers (On devices sitting on a desk with full signal) but the system was surprisingly robust. I've written my own SMTP/MTA/POP3 server from scratch as well, so 'not hard' has air quotes around it. i.e. I've coded systems with much more complexity than would be required. Even with the hand offs, the app could use an SMS back channel to update the central message router as it hopped networks. I would imagine the complexity is just knowing the present network the device is on and routing to the correct gateway on the fly. A little fiddly, but I usually figure if I could code it, the smart whipper snappers at Google out to be able to bang something out.

To fully appreciate the power inside #GoogleAllo you need to see messaging taking place between two phones as it's happening! I have the luxury of having dozens of test phones at my disposal, but if nothing else, have a friend stand next to you while you both message back-and-forth. It's awesome.

Oh, Google. You set up an email campaign to promote the Oct 4th event, and have the email experience do THIS?! For shame, Google. For shame....

I'll add that the Calendar event is a mere 15 minutes! What the what?

At long last, it's easy to share Google Cardboard Camera shots!
Here is a VR shot of the NYC skyline I shot last month from the Brooklyn Bridge.

Also exciting to see that the app is now available for our Apple brethren! https://googleblog.blogspot.com/2016/09/cardboard-camera-ios.html

Right beside the highway, but getting into the plaza where it's at takes a little effort! Still, worth it! Love the mini sliders.

Had to turn in cable box, since we cut the cord. Was a fast process to turn in the box. Much faster than the battle on the phone to break up with them!! That took 45 min!

Food is good and consistent. Server got my order wrong, but it was his first night, so that'll happen. Never was visited by the manager, to ask how our meal was. I've been experiencing that a lot at other places lately...

I love Toast on Market, both here and over in Louisville! The menu is great, the decor is great, the staff is friendly! THE place to have breakfast! Note, it CAN be loud, with all the hard surfaces in the place. There were two tables with crying babies, and we had all we could do to hear one another!
