Check out +dawn chmielewski’s story about popSLATE , another great company/product I’m working with :) (via +Re/code)
After a successful Indiegogo campaign, startup's founders spent another two years bringing their product to market.

What a great idea. It's probably better suited as an accessory rather than built in like the Yotaphone. Although I noticed today that Yotaphone are sponsoring Lotus F1, so they must be doing something right.

Tonight's +All About Android should be enlightening to say the least.

+Koushik Dutta and +Myriam Joire join +Ron Richards and myself.

Android is firmly in the crosshairs in this week's big news: Cyanogen Inc's $80 million plan to bypass Google, and Microsoft's plan to turn Xiaomi Android devices into Windows 10 devices...

Also, Myriam has the HTC One M9 in person, Android Auto releases, Amazon Unlocked, Smart Lock on-body detection, TAG Heuer's high end Wear device, and much more.

Watch live at 5pm PT at http://live.twit.tv.

Story
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. She’s been called a “personality” and a “pundit“, but despite being (in)ternet famous, she’s just a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She's based in San Francisco.
