"As the video points out, many improvements have been made to speed up build times. Steps are taken to avoid redundant build activities, particularly those that can be cached from a previous build. Packaging is also done more quickly by excluding resources that aren't necessary for a particular build. There is also a new Shrinker tool that takes the place of Proguard's slower processor, and an optimized ADB protocol for faster communication with the new emulator."

Interesting new tactic from Google.
Can digital advertising help win the war against violent extremists? Google is willing to try.

New technique leads to creation of elastic high-strength carbon nanotube film
(Phys.org)—A new technique developed by researchers at East China University of Science and Technology and Shanghai Jiao Tong University has led to the development of a high-strength carbon nanotube film that retains much of the elasticity of native carbon nanotubes. In their paper published in the journal Nano Letters, the team describes their technique and the characteristics of the materials they made.

Why switch to Windows 10 or a Mac when you can use Linux Mint 17.3 instead?

Linux Mint 17.3 is the best Linux desktop operating system and it might be the best PC operating system, period, for you.

I used both Ubuntu itself a well as Mint (Cinnamon and Mint KDE) and have always been impressed with Linux Mint. It has all the support that Ubuntu gets, but it presents a much slicker and enhanced appearance as well as some nice extra Mint specific utilities. I'd recommend it without hesitation for newcomers to Linux, and even for more advanced home users as it has Ubuntu running under the GUI. I've also used it at work in a corporate environment and found it way faster and more stable than Windows 7. Those 5 second shutdowns at home time are a real pleasure!
