The iPhone has had promo codes forever. I've been begging Google to add this feature for nearly as long. And guess what? They've finally done it! Developers can now offer promo codes for apps and games in the Google Play Store. To create a new promo code, visit this link in the Dev Console. Some interesting notes: Promo codes CANNOT be used on in-app subscriptions Promo codes CAN be used on apps/games and non-subscription in-app purchases Each a...

I don't know how I feel about the change of venue. I really liked the location of Moscone
 
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.

That seems strange. At Ubiquity, I heard them say that updates are seamless and happen in the background. That seems impossible if you are "syncing the platform" every time there is an update.

Thanks Oculus Rift


"As a small token of our appreciation for your support, all Kickstarter backers who pledged for a Rift development kit will get a free Kickstarter Edition Oculus Rift! And like all Rift pre-order purchasers, you’ll receive a bundled copy of Lucky’s Tale and EVE: Valkyrie."

Weird problem which may just be a coincidence.

I recently got a Foscam C1, set it up, it worked fine for a few days. I was getting some intermittent issues, so I tried sending the reboot command from within TinyCam Monitor.

The device appeared to reboot, however it never connected to wifi. I tried connecting via ethernet with no luck. I even tried the process to reset the device to factory settings with no luck. I also removed the power for a while. No combination of this appeared to work.

Have you seen similar behavior before?

+Alexey Vasilyev​ that's what I figured, just wanted to make sure it wasn't sending some other command accidentally that put it into a weird state

I'm not sure we need converged devices. Universal apps would be just as good.

+Paul Burke it's simple, they want you to buy two devices, not one.

Have you guys used IP cams? What are your thoughts? My biggest concern is security, but it seems like there's a lot of FUD out there that boils down to most people thinking they secured them but didn't really.

The cheap chinese models use bottom-grade CCDs, so spend at least $50 to get one that won't wash out in anything more intense than moonlight. Similarly, they're often antique linux+busybox internally, so keep it on a locked-down VLAN internally, with no external access. Besides that they generally Just Work until the plastic melts through.

Also, buy on Amazon and abuse the 30-day return if it doesn't work right. There's not much point in linking you to items, since they'll just randomly send the wrong SKU.
