I've not seen this dialog myself, but wow that's a really nice touch, right down to showing the location of the options file that will be updated.
 
Just last week I was complaining that AS (Idea) didn't handle problems very well when it came to dialogs.
Today's experience is pretty much the opposite. It's pretty safe to say that most applications when facing with out of memory issues just fail or freeze. Not so with AS :-)

Very nice.

Android for Work is pretty transparent for most devs, apps just work. But, by following a couple of best practices you can ensure you avoid some common pitfalls.
 
Today we're announcing the Android for Work program to tap into the potential of smartphones and tablets in the workplace. 

Android for Work brings together OEMs, Enterprise mobility management and Developers so organizations can make the most of the world’s #1 mobile operating system.

For more on how to join Google Play for Work and how to design great apps for Android for Work, check out our blogpost (http://goo.gl/Tz7I1Y). To learn about the benefits for developers and what you should look out for, watch this DevByte from Developer Advocate +Rich Hyndman

*Walking, talking and Idea for Web Apps* - we are doing a lot of work trying to work out how to build the next generation of web apps and we've found some good ways to create new ideas.

How do you find ideas for web apps and why is it important to build apps that push the platform?

We’re graduating from Google[x] labs

It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.

Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.

Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.

Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.

As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)

Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.

If Google can pull off both +Phonebloks​ and +Google Glass​ in the same year it will be impressive.

New video and community for Android Studio!

Following last week's release of Android Studio 1.1, we want to share two additional resources to help you make the most of this IDE for Android application development.

First, check out the video from Developer Advocate +Wojtek Kaliciński which gives a high level introduction to Android Studio. In the video, learn why you should migrate your projects to Android Studio now and how it can help you be more productive as a developer.

Second, we're moving the Android Studio discussions to their own official community. Join here http://goo.gl/AhOcCa and start a conversation on the tools to build great Android apps.

Moved house and gone from Grade A internet to Grade F+ (on the speedtest scale), that's....unfortunate. BT are coming out to see if they can fix it, but I can't imagine they'll get it much higher. My photos now take 51x longer to upload to Google Drive! WhAt HaVe I dOnE!!

My phone on 3G is 3x faster than my 'broadband', anyone running their home internet off the mobile network?

Did you say exclusive t-shirt?
 
GET SOME EXCLUSIVE ANDROID PERFORMANCE PATTERNS SWAG BEFORE JAN 28th

Let your team know the reality of the situation : The speed of their application is directly related to how much Caffeine they feed you.

BUY a TEA version of the shirt here : http://goo.gl/UNkwfx
BUY a COFFEE version of the shirt here: http://goo.gl/r8hpoB

This is  TEESPRING campaign. Which means that 20 shirts need to be ordered before the whole group is made. I'm actually pretty interested to see which is more popular... Coffee, Or Tea?

LET IT BEGIN!
