This explains why multiple bootloaders are present on Android devices. They are modeled after Linux bootloaders and bios. In all actuality, it would be possible to have just two bootloaders but manufacturers generally have three on Android devices.. Unless you're Samsung and have a fourth.

Regarding "storage access framework", I get the desire for simplifying processes, but I don't like the idea of "everything in one place". I still want some very clear barriers between accounts/communications/data etc.
 
What's New in Android 4.4

KitKat has been optimized to run on a much broader range of devices, with special focus on the millions of entry-level devices that have as little as 512MB RAM. To help, we’ve created new APIs, better tools, and better documentation to let you create apps that perform well on all devices. 

Check out this video summary of some of the most significant developer features in the latest Android release, including  new ways to make your apps beautiful, NFC Host Card Emulation, a printing framework, the storage access framework, low-power step detector and step counter sensors, and more!

Be sure to get the full Android 4.4 API Overview:

When Square was founded in 2009 it set out to upend the market for taking credit-card payments among small merchants. It is now poised to disrupt the market for personal remittances. The firm, which was developed by Jack Dorsey, one of the creators of Twitter, has now come up with a personal remittance system called Square Cash, which uses e-mail to allow person-to-person transfers http://econ.st/1as51ms

Quite unbelievable on one level and then weirdly to be expected because of the tiny amount of people that could ever check properly
 
Drive a Toyota? You may want to read this .. even if you don't, but you're involved in some sort of engineering practice, you probably still want to read this.

.. and then weep into a pillow that such things occur. As one friend noted, software development was simply seen as a "cost center" at the corporate level. :/
On Thursday October 24, 2013, an Oklahoma court ruled against Toyota in a case of unintended acceleration that lead to the death of one the occupants. Central to the trial was the Engine Control Module's (ECM) firmware. Embedded software used to be low-level code we'd bang together using C or ...

Motorola today announced "Project Ara," an effort to create a hardware platform that consumers can use to make customizable smartphones with upgradable parts. What do you think of Project Ara? Is it a program that you're interested in following and possibly helping with?
