NBC's Park and Recreation has one of my favorite final seasons of any show I've ever watched. <Not spoiling it> The general concept for the whole seasons was just really well thought out and allowed for a fitting end to all characters throughout the season.

Doing #AndroidDev and curious how the Android Studio, Android Plugin, and Gradle versions relate? Well, now that the tooling has reached 1.0 (Dec 2014) you'll be able to update to newer versions of these tools as your dev cycle allows. More info here.

Give the new experimental toolchain a spin and let us know how it fares with your apps!
 
Today we are making an early, experimental version of Jack and Jill available for testing. If you are interested in giving the new toolchain a try with non-production versions of your apps, we encourage you to give us your feedback. The blog post below describes how the toolchain works, how to configure it, and how to let us know of your feature requests and any bugs you find.

Amazon has a nice Smile program where they donate a portion of your purchases to charity when you use the smile domain instead of www. Consider signing up to help your local schools if you don't already have another preferred charity.
Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com. Questions?

Quick Android tip on this 5th day of Christmas.. 

Don't use '+' in version numbers when declaring your dependencies in your Android applications. Not using '+' may speed up your build a little bit because your maven cache will typically already have your jars after the 1st build. '+' is also a poor practice because it doesn't allow for hermetic builds between developers.

This could be big for 'big data' processing.
KentuckyFC writes Statisticians have long thought it impossible to tell cause and effect apart using observational data. The problem is to take two sets of measurements that are correlated, say X and Y, and to find out if X caused Y or Y caused X. That's straightforward with a controlled experiment ...

Multidexing should be easier to deal with now that Google Play services has smaller client libs and we've released multidex processing support http://goo.gl/eAehhP #androiddev  
 
With Google Play services version 6.5 or later, it is possible for you to include Google Play services in your application using a number of smaller libraries, so that unused ones don’t get compiled into your .dex file and count their methods towards the limit.

Learn more about it below.
