Google Cast Support for HDMI CEC
We have recently rolled out additional support for HDMI CEC features for Google Cast devices.

You can now use your TV’s remote Play and Pause buttons to control media that you cast to your TV on some applications. You can also use your remote’s Exit button to stop casting an app.

We previously launched the ability for Google Cast devices to change the TV input when you begin casting.

You need to ensure your apps use the Google Cast media namespace for controlling media playback and that the media control commands are supported by the receiver app: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/reference/messages

Your TV needs to have HDMI CEC enabled for these features to work. Follow the instructions in our User Help Center and Support Forum: http://goo.gl/J6QBDc

Note that these features may not work with all Cast enabled apps or all TV’s.

Happy Casting!

Went for a walk to day on Daniel Island Trail.  This is about a mile from where our new home will be in Charleston, SC.  Fall is setting in, 70s for the high and 50s for the low.

Interesting opportunity.
 
Okay, I've been a little radio silent since I switched to the Energy team at Google, but it's been a pretty incredible experience being in a small organization at Google again. It's full of smart, passionate people working on various ways to attack the energy problem (which, of all the problems humanity needs to solve, is probably the biggest one. It's all Mad Max up in here in 15 years if we don't figure this out). 

And it being small now, means we have to grow it larger - so I just wanted to call out some of the open positions in the team. Let me know if you're interested in any of these, or know great people. 

My small sub-team is looking for a senior mechanical engineer: https://www.google.com/about/careers/search#!t=jo&jid=68145001&
 - you'd get to work with me! and be on a small project that's still prototyping and designing a lot

Other projects on the team are also looking for Product Managers, Software Engineers - both FE and BE, as well as a data analyst (MatLab/R is good to know). No external postings for these other than general SWE/PM pipelines, but let me know if you're interested and I can get you some more info. 

On the investments team (they've signed $1.5+ billion in renewable energy projects) is looking for Deal Leads:

Meanwhile in the Czech Republic (and rest of Europe) the price hasn't come under $4.60 per gallon (€1 per litre) for years. :)

This explains a lot. Including previously mysterious things like drag racing, that black pickup truck on your photo, and maybe even Hummer.
