I'm just going to leave this here for all you M testers. 
 
A quick update on M Developer Preview 3.
We want this to be a near final release to test your apps on, but we need a little more time to get it out to you.
Please be patient and refrain from posting speculations about the release date in the community. We will announce the Preview 3 availability here and on +Android Developers as soon as it's ready.

+Mandeep Singh Sootdhar I feel the same way about my +Nexus 4. The attention to detail is amazing on that phone (Except the sliding off flat surfaces part in the first few batches).

Few things I've noticed:
1. Curved glass on both ends: Such a pleasure to slide your finger off the glass when swiping away something or when you're opening the hamburger menu by sliding in.
2. Rubbery plastic sides: I can confidently pick up my phone using two fingers and has provided me confidence to avoid using a case for the past 2.5 yrs. It's never slipped from my hand. Compare this with the 2014 Moto X my wife has; I'm never confident about picking it up thanks to the smooth metal sides and not confident while holding it coz of the slippery plastic back.
3. The way the bottom of the phone is designed: I usually hold my phone like this - little finger supporting the bottom of the phone, three fingers on the back and the thumb to use the device. Whenever I use the other phones, they keep digging into my little finger coz that's the finger supporting the bulk of the weight. But my N4 has a chamfer on the bottom, so there's a flat surface instead of an edge resting on the finger. This makes it so much more comfortable to use for long periods of time. Phones with sharp edges like the '14 Moto X, iPhone 4&5 are the worst. Even the iPhone 6 which has a curved bottom isn't as good the flat surface of my N4!
4. The glass black: It just plain feels good to touch and hold and the way it shimmers under light is just sprinkles on top of the icing!

I haven't used the '13 Moto X much but it felt good in hand the few times I've handled it.

P.S: Maybe I should look for a career in ergonomics?

TL;DR: Nexus 4 is da bomb for in hand feel!

It's all about the details. 
 
According to http://reddit.com/u/shadowdude777 rotation is a fundamental Android problem, unfortunately. iOS just rotates the display. Android actually destroys what's on the screen and recreates it entirely when you rotate. That's why the Android implementation has to be so janky and the iOS one looks so fluid, as if the view just grows in the horizontal direction and shrinks in the vertical.

A bit of a sad realization, provided it's true.

I like how Microsoft pre-installs Candy Crush Saga on my Windows 10. Out of all the apps they could have installed, they install Candy Crush👍😒

Strange, I didn't get a Candy Crush pre-install. Maybe Cortana knows you better than yourself. :P

Do you ever find yourself trying to avoid long lines or wondering when is the best time to go grocery shopping, pick up coffee or hit the gym (hint: avoid Monday after work)? You’re in luck!

Now, you can avoid the wait and see the busiest times of the week at millions of places and businesses around the world directly from Google Search. For example, just search for "Blue Bottle Williamsburg", tap on the title and see how busy it gets throughout the day. Enjoy your extra time!

+Abhilash Bingi sorry if my comment was misunderstood, I wasn't trying to be the wise guy suggesting it was a silly Google idea..
😎

it might be good for businesses, but it could misfire too.. I might change stores just because its crowded when am usually free.

Ok, maybe I should just hit the bed now! 😝

Man, these people are like kids running around arguing who's toy is better. Use whatever works for you and let it be, no need to go bashing the product or service and starting a war over a social network lol.

Introduction
Hello, world. My name is Vinoth Ragunathan. I have been a designer, technology enthusiast, a dreamer and a code-tinker since I was 14. I've always been interested in that sweet spot of both simplicity and functionality. Both of them on their own aren't as exciting as when they meet together. Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Definitely a place to visit once every 2-3yrs or so. Nothing special or mind-blowing about this place. The tour is every short and a bit boring, except the water tunnel (Dangerous Lagoon), that was probably the coolest part.
