Anyone else see Google Services taking up ridiculous amounts of data every month? I don't even know what's included in this. 😡

+Salman Ahmad​ I don't believe that I've seen the wakelock issue in 6.0.1 yet.

Curiously, the majority of iPhone sales belonged to the smaller 4.7 inch screened iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S devices (73%), while Android saw the biggest percentage of its own sales belonging to phablets (50%).

There's nothing curious about this. People prefer smaller phones but Android manufacturers ignore this, releasing all flagships as phablets.
The 2015 holiday season has seen a huge number of mobile devices being given as presents, and Apple has accounted for nearly half of those activations, enough to give it victory over the army of Android devices. That's the conclusion of a report from mobile analytics firm Flurry, which hands Cupertino 49.1 percent of all mobile activation between 18 December 2015 and 25 December 2015.

PSA - Nexus Price Protection

If you bought a Nexus 5X, you may be entitled to price protection, which allows you to recoup the $80 from the Black Friday discount. This is true for most Mastercard and Amex cards, and some others.

You must file within 60 days, which means today if you pre-ordered on the day of the announcement.

At $349, with the $50 Play credit, I don't feel so bad about this sluggish device anymore.

Marshmallow Inactive Apps

It's really ironic that there are all of these new measures to automatically disable inactive apps in Marshmallow because Google apps are the only apps that I've ever, in 7 years, had consistent battery problems with.

Google: "We aggressively disable apps you're not using so there's more juice for Google Play Services and Android OS Wakelocks." 

Speaking of which, I've finally experienced the infamous wakelock issue and it is not fun. It's embarrassing that this is still present in Android, all these years later.

Experienced it twice (camera and gps) on 6.0 and probably never on 5/5.1 Marshmallow still seems a bit raw tbh.

Man, this looked like a great idea until I saw the price: $250!

These people must be smoking that cardboard, too.

+Jacob Grover I might consider it at $100, but that's the upper limit. It can't be too difficult to find a manufacturer (partner) in the US, to produce it for tens of dollars.

Anyway, it's just a matter of time before we see some reasonably-priced competitors and perhaps even some open source. In my opinion, this was a poorly planned product release for an awesome product.

Need the Google Android emoji in your design or dev project? There's a repo for that: Noto Emoji!

An elegant way of stating that Trump supporters are mostly hicks and morons.

In a nutshell, the people pushing Trump to the head of the polling pack in the very crowded Republican field, the people who have assured Trump a position on the debate stage next month and the people fueling Trump's candidacy are — overwhelmingly but not limited to — white, Republicans with limited education.

Had to switch back for now, as it is way too buggy and missing too many features. Couldn't even post this from it.

Android Recents Menu Concept

After I complained about the shortcomings of the current Recents Menu implementation, +Ian Lake​ asked if I had a better idea that maintained the speed and ease of use, while making the nature of the relationship between tasks, documents and apps more clear. [0] This is a concept that hopes to achieve that goal. I previously posted a quick static mockup [1], but have since evolved the idea and am using motion to better illustrate it here.

Hi-res video: https://youtu.be/gA1RbEFDnIU

The main idea is to switch to a horizontally stacked app list, with the respective tasks and documents stacked vertically. I believe this better suits the majority use case: users typically only navigate to the last 3 - 4 Recents entries and think of tasks/documents as part of the app. It clarifies why there are multiple entries for each app, and reduces the overall clutter, allowing for more utility.

Answers to some critiques:

- This only allows you to see one app at a time, while the current one shows you 4.

Actually, the current implementation shows you 3, at best, because the bottom one is your current app. The top entry screenshot isn't visible at all, so it could be argued that only 2 entries are truly accessible.

My concept allows the user to easily tap on the icon, instead of a card, which automatically switches to the most recent task or document. Combined with the ability to see 3 - 4 entries per app at a time, and the user can now easily switch to at least 4 different screens. 8+ if they tap the edges of the off-screen cards.

This approach also allows apps to use different App Bar colors to make distinguishing between tasks even easier (e.g. Google Messenger contact colors). As more apps use the task/document approach, this concept only gets better. The current one only gets worse; more cluttered. 

- You can no longer horizontally swipe to remove apps from the list, which will slow me down.

One of the main focuses of this concept is to reduce the time you spend clearing the Recents Menu. However, you can also now clear all tasks from an app at once. I believe this is a fair tradeoff for the added utility and clarity.

+Valery Chutak​ AE really is not faster for quick mockups from psd sources, at least not for me. I didn't have time to be fussing with layers that don't transfer well.

It's not frame animations, it's using the Photoshop Timeline and vector mask tweening. It's extremely fast and easy for rough mockups, like this.

Quick mockup of a concept for the Android Recents Menu that better illustrates the nature of apps and their tasks/documents, while reducing the visual clutter of the current implementation.

If I have time, I'll try to put together a quick motion demo to further explain the idea.

Also, I suspect users may be alternating between the 4 most recent tasks, but usage data would really answer this. Perhaps Google already did this and designed it because of that?

Just had my first good experience with a car dealership. After visiting Toyota of Manhattan and Plaza Toyota (Brooklyn), I was starting to think that all Toyota dealers are snakes. Bill Olansen was a breath of fresh air. No hidden fees, TrueCar price honored, and generally a pleasurable experience. Lee's will be my #1 recommendation to anyone looking for a car in the future. Other places don't even come close.
