The #nitrokey people are starting to make some pre crowdfunding campaign noise and I'm glad to help as I'd like to buy a NK Storage (does encryption, otp, ... + has encrypted storage).
The Password is Dead. Passwords can be either difficult to remember or too short to securely protect important accounts. Traditional password systems have not been able to keep up with the increasing number of accounts needed for various websites nowadays. Passwords should be unique and the same ...

Hi,
from a presentation at #FossGIS2014  about Vaadin I learned that the migration path from Vaadin6 / vOpenlayers with OpenLayers 2.1x to Vaadin 7 (current version) and OpenLayers 3 (still beta, production release available in near future) isn't built yet and will need a decent amount work.
 * Changes betweenVaadin 6 and Vaadin 7
 * Big changes in OpenLayers API (Version 2 -> 3)

This summer GWT3 probably will become available and "will have a better interop with JS libraries".

Are there plans or ist there already work in progress for a GWT3/OpenLayers3 wrapper?

No good news if they are true. Seems that the O in AOSP has to be written pretty small.

+Edouard Tavinor Yes,Thanks for pointing that out. Chromium doesn't have to be licensed and can be installed additionally like firefox.

For embedded solutions updating the software often is not easy. The devices in general are not "personalized" and don't come with some app store installed.  
A separate Chromium install means more work but also offers the chance to update the Browser more often.
An Android integrated and maintained browser makes it easier/saves some work for the OEM as he doesn't have to care for a separate browser.  
On https://developers.google.com/chrome/mobile/docs/webview/overview they write "...  The WebView shipped with Android 4.4 (KitKat) is based on the same code as Chrome for Android version 30. The WebView does not have full feature parity with Chrome for Android and is currently given the version number 30.0.0.0.
......
Your apps inside a WebView are just as important and deserve a runtime that keeps users up to date. There are large engineering and logistical challenges. We're not quite there yet, but we're working on it."

I'd interpret "logistical challenges" as a reference to the play store.

At the moment I don't see if a later installed chrome or chromium app can/will affect the webview.
If the webview isn't "updated" by a separately installed chrome/chromium app a webview based browser would offer advantages in terms of consistency (same rendering in browser and webview).

Would be great if the Ubuntu Edge campaign succeeds.

Ansich eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Bemerkenswert, dass es wie eine Aussenseitermeinung wirkt.

Found a pretty informative blog post concerning Android/AOSP.

A small teaser:
While it might not be an official requirement, being granted a Google apps license will go a whole lot easier if you join the Open Handset Alliance. The OHA is a group of companies committed to Android—Google's Android—and members are contractually prohibited from building non-Google approved devices. That's right, joining the OHA requires a company to sign its life away and promise to not build a device that runs a competing Android fork.
Acer was bit by this requirement when it tried to build devices that ran Alibaba's Aliyun OS in China. Aliyun is an Android fork, and when Google got wind of it, Acer was told to shut the project down or lose its access to Google apps. 
...
This makes life extremely difficult for the only company brazen enough to sell an Android fork in the west: Amazon. Since the Kindle OS counts as an incompatible version of Android, no major OEM is allowed to produce the Kindle Fire for Amazon. So when Amazon goes shopping for a manufacturer for its next tablet, it has to immediately cross Acer, Asus, Dell, Foxconn, Fujitsu, HTC, Huawei, Kyocera, Lenovo, LG, Motorola, NEC, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, and ZTE off the list. Currently, Amazon contracts Kindle manufacturing out to Quanta Computer, a company primarily known for making laptops. Amazon probably doesn't have many other choices.

For me the first two pages are real concerns. I think the third not so much. And the fourth page is ridiculous.

I am wary myself of some aspects of Google Play Services but that page is weird, to say the least.

For example: Even if all maps code were in AOSP the data would still not be available. They are Google's and obviously Google is not fond of sharing them. And they never did - not with Jelly Bean, nor with any prior version of Android. Maps were proprietary from day one. And they are on any device. Any other maker can either do it themself or try to support OpenStreetMap.

Same with any messaging. As if Amazon's messaging solution were not proprietary in itself. And so on. If he only had published just the first two pages.
