Nice run down of Goolge Now commands.  [G+ why you make it so hard to zoom (on a desktop)....]
 
Here's a cool list of all the voice commands for the new Google Now. Really cool to see what you can do with them. (Zoom to see details)

Regarding the DevFest and hack nights suggestions. Something different monthly is good and keeps things fresh. The MelbDjango hack nights that I've attended have done this and they are great fun.

Regarding projects and ideas, I've always had thoughts of supporting charities / non-profit organisations with things like the SMARTER eVCS that I did but, admittedly, I kind of lost my way (http://blog.thewheatfield.org/2012/10/06/smarter-evcs-android-app-source/ ). But that is the gist of things. Build apps for organisations which also provides a way to help get people into contributing back to the community as well as a way to learn things. 

Random Hacks of Kindness http://rhok.org/ have a 2 day hackathon where stake holders 'pitch' their idea and a solution (or at least a part of the solution) is worked on for the weekend. 

For our hackathons, I think should have people pitch their ideas that help the community and then we can build that. But as time may be limited, the solution that is to be worked on should have a list of on-going tasks that need to be done and thus makes it a longer term project than just a 2 day thing. Then every so often (weekly/monthly) we have a hack night where we work on the solution and provide a ground for people to learn if they are interested.

+Firdaus Zailani perhaps gauge from audience. Have online votes. Could do that on G+ or just a simple poll thing. But that said, fixing platform and technology would help streamline things and help people to focus on tackling the task at hand

S-Off vs Unlocked, and flashing firmware

Earlier this week, I met with some of the folks on the HTCDev team in Seattle to talk about supporting +CyanogenMod and root users/developers.

We had a chance to discuss some of the misperceptions of both sides, and the conversation was enlightening. On the ROM community's end, there seems to be a misunderstanding of what "S-OFF" means; as there are a few issues being conflated here. So much so, that they recently released a S-OFF FAQ on their HTCDev portal about it:
http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/about_unlock_process

There are two distinct concepts here:
 * Being able to flash a custom ROM (boot, recovery, system)
 * Being able to flash the black box partitions (non-mfg bootloader, radio, trustzone, etc). This also enables carrier unlock via SuperCID.

The term "S-OFF" is specific to HTC's bootloader, and is now being generically used and misnomered across all Android phones. The HTC Dev Unlock tool (as of the One) allows a user to flash the partitions that are interesting to custom ROMs. A full S-OFF turns off all security, allowing flashing of the radio and bootloader (and switch carriers). The latter bits are complete black boxes to all developers, and are generally not very interesting. Anyone that is involved with the radio stack, etc, are most likely employed by either Qualcomm, Samsung, etc. There is no "radio" development in the ROM community.

In a previous post, I stated the that "...the HTCDev unlock on this device [HTC One] actually behaves properly, unlike its predecessors. It behaves like a Nexus device."
https://plus.google.com/103583939320326217147/posts/WykbCAAVcrv

The HTC One is not S-OFF. But neither are the Nexus devices (Secure Boot, good luck flashing a "custom" radio image).

To put things in perspective (and these are my/+CyanogenMod's opinions); I'm not particularly concerned about devices being S-OFF. Even if they were, I wouldn't want to (or be able to) make changes to the radio anyways. I do want my phones to be unlocked so I can flash custom firmware, and I can do that.
