Finally.
 
Sometimes, we use photos for practical purposes, like planning a wedding, remodeling a kitchen, or capturing meeting notes from a whiteboard. And, while you snap all kinds of pics, your experience across Google should be seamless and consistent. Starting today, the photos and videos you keep in Google+ Photos will also be available in Google Drive.

Color scale conditional formatting in Sheets
Now it's even easier to visualize which numbers are the highest and lowest in a range--just select the “color scale” option when setting up conditional formatting. Plus, if you change any of the values, the colors will automatically update as you go. More info in the Help Center:  http://goo.gl/GhRKQG

And one more thing: you can now import Excel files with color scale formatting too!

In case you're wondering why your Nexus 6 feels so darn fast and smooth on Android 5.1, besides all the improvements on ART and possibly a lot of code cleaning and optimizations on the Framework - the device is now running full quad-core mode all the time which helps tremendously because the Kernel task scheduler can distribute the workload through all these cores so you'll get the perception that the device is not hanging anymore.

They also disabled the built-in thread migration boost routines - if you don't know what this is about it's a driver made by Qualcomm that receives a notifier from the task scheduler when one thread migrated from one cpu core to another, and to minimize perceived lag it boosted the destination core to the same, or greated, frequency than the origin core:

1 - thread moves from cpu0 to cpu2
2 - driver is notified
3 - reads the current cpu0 frequency
4 - if cpu2 current frequency is less than cpu0's read frequency it boosts cpu2 to that freq, or, if the origin freq is lower than the threshold (which is 1.7GHz by default AFAIK) it boosts to that threshold value.
5 - the boosted frequency on cpu2 stays there for at least 20ms

These migrations can occur dozens of times per-second. One of the things that I did on FK was disabling all this to conserve battery (and we don't really need all that boosting with this chip).
I'm sure Google did the math and a lot of power measurements and found out that the gains outgain the losses, so they disabled this, and I applaud them.

So these two changes balance themselves out, and I can imagine that 100% stock users will be pleasantly surprised by the improved battery life.

Unfortunately we're still dealing with full 3 second cpu boost on touch events... we don't need long of a boost, specially at 1.5GHz... Comon Google.

I don't know what other improvements they did on the Kernel, the source is not up yet, this is all I know for now.

The chromium team has been playing with an experimental Plugin Power Saver mode lately available now in Dev Channel.

By going to chrome://settings/content and change the "Plug-ins" setting to "Detect and run important plugin content", Chrome will do its best to detect Flash plugins that consume power battery and only show the first nice-looking frame with a "play" button so that you decide if you want to see the full animation by clicking on it.

La soirée #WTM15 de mercredi prochaine (1er avril) chez Google à Paris sera l'occasion d'accueillir Adrienne Porter Felt, ingénieur dans l'équipe sécurité de Chrome qui présentera le travail en cours pour aider les utilisateurs à prendre des décisions éclairées face à des problèmes de sécurité (redirections, certificats non valides, et autres tentatives de phishing). A ne pas manquer, donc!

Awesome.
 
Hi there, I have released the "SFTP File System" application to mount the SFTP server you can access to as the remote file system. This application is using the File System Provider API, and I developed the NaCl module to communcate with SSH2 server via SFTP protocol using libssh2 library and nacl_io. You can access to your directories/files on the File manager app and Chrome apps using the HTML5 File System API.

This is the initial release, therefore, I guess that it may have a few bugs. If you find any issue, feel free to let me know that. Thanks!

Access a SFTP server directly from the Files app.

Nice, +François Beaufort do you know if the UK version is the same as the US version (keyboard and everything)? I may ask a friend there to get one for me.
 
Boom! Google just announced an updated, more powerful Chromebook Pixel with many improvements such as Universal charging, data, and display in the form of USB Type-C.

Checkout http://www.google.com/chromebook/pixel/ to read the full specs and learn more about the newly open sourced Type-C adapters at http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/hoho that the chromium team just released.
