I'm starting to really like my Android Wear watch, the +Sony Smartwatch 3.

However, while running the latest 5.1.1 build it has many bugs and all kind of reliability issues.
A few Bluetooth disconnections (with Nexus 5 5.1.1), a few new watch faces or apps not always being installed on the watch until you uninstall/install again it on the phone, a spontaneous soft-reboot, "Android Wear" not responding on the watch once in a while.

I kept it plugged on the charger and connected tonight and it's warm as I picked it up.
Why?
40% of the CPU was used, then it increased to this as confirmed by top:
http://pastie.org/10316037

Coincidence, or was it doing the same the whole night?
I don't know. Hopefully it won't do the same on battery.

As long as it works well as a GPS watch for sports and a way to explore Android Wear ecosystem I'm happy with it; and I like a lot all those creative watch faces :)
But the stability and reliability leaves to be desired, enough to be an annoyance after just a few days.

I hope Google will focus on that seriously.

I sold my G Watch because of battery issues and stuck with the Pebble.

François Simond was out running. He tracked 11.92 km in 57m:25s.

Giving a try to +Endomondo​ as well.
So far I'm really not sure which one I should use to store my runs.
Recommendations welcome!

Hello there, I have suffered with the same bugs with Endomondo standalone, but they have increased since 5.1.1, with 5.0.1 it was a better experience, hope they fix it, because overall, endomondo it's a better application... (considering the web interface features).  Currently I'm using endomondo with my phone, and using the SW3 as a remote control, it works flawlessly.

I got an +Sony​ Smartwatch 3 a couple days ago and just came back from a first run with it ☺

Today there's multiple solutions to record activities using the internal GPS of this Android Wear watch.
This one is from Ghostracer, uploaded automatically to +Strava​.

Ghostracer also uploaded to +RunKeeper​.
I was started to record with +Endomondo​ and My Tracks simultaneously but +Endomondo​ quitted or got killed while in background after a minute.

I was thinking about buying this one. My motoactv is already useless. Thanks!

Ethiopia's approach to counter terrorism doesn't seem very wise.

It's not uncommon authorities ask citizens to weaken their privacy and security hoping it would help their job to protect them from criminal or terrorism activities. Which is already a misguided effort.

According to +Electronic Frontier Foundation's article, Ethiopian prosecutors are currently going much further than just asking.
UPDATE: The Lideta Federal High Court today rejected evidence submitted by Zelalem and his colleagues and postponed a verdict in their case until August 21. The defendants had to appear in court without legal representation, since their lawyer had his license revoked by the Ministry of Justice last week. The rejection suggests the Court is likely to accept the prosecutor's evidence, which was gathered after the defendants were taken into custody...

How to play and output 96kHz audio on +Android devices is rather mysterious to me at the moment.
Despite the various announcement I've read in the press of products supporting this capability.

Playing 24 bit PCM using AudioTrack Java API is not difficult: you can convert 24 bit samples over 3 bytes to 32 bit floats, and that's pretty much it.
But higher sampling rate: does it require using proprietary APIs to tunnel compressed formats to a DSP decoding it then driving the DAC by itself, all that while bypassing AudioFlinger?

Let me know if you have any good link, claims to verify and other information related :)
Time to investigate!

I understand that writing to the codec directly is not the way to go for a final implementation of an app or service. The method that I mentioned above should be more than adequate to make measurements with sampling rates higher than 48 kHz, however. Please note that I'm not an Android developer, so I really don't know as to what is possible (or not) with the available APIs.

Yay, Bojack Horseman season 2 is now available on +Netflix :)
I'm not gonna binge-watch it this week-end at all.
Enter the stable of BoJack Horseman’s acting website. Star of 90s sitcom, Horsin’ Around, and an upcoming show on Netflix, BoJack still has time for his fans after all these years.

+Kent Seaton well... Archer really isn't that good..
It's a highly mediocre show.
Not bad, and there are occasional glimpses of genius, but most of the time the jokes are rather bland.
And it's not that I mind fucked up or raw jokes, Family Guy has some pretty sick jokes, involving cutting off limbs and other fucked up shit. But I still like Family Guy because the delivery is great.
Also, the animation in Archer is pretty bad.

A touching story reminding us that not only we're not the only species alive being somewhat intelligent, but also that we're able to connect with smart creatures with a personality despite we evolved as differently as required by our respective environments.

It makes me wonder what octopus could archive if they were social with their own kind.
ON AN UNSEASONABLY WARM day in the middle of March, I traveled from New Hampshire to the moist, dim sanctuary of the New England Aquarium, hoping to touch

This new vulnerability found by +Zimperium in +Android doesn't look too good.
Gaining remote code execution privileges merely by having access to the mobile number? Enter Stagefright. The targets for this kind of attack can be anyone from Prime ministers, govt. officials, company executives, security officers to IT managers.  Built on tens of gigabytes of source code from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the leading smartphone operating … Read More

How would this flaw affect a device reading video with a video player and not some sms application ? Reading a bogus video with mx player would trigger it ? Every devices I have lend the video reading to the video player and don't try to read it from the sms application

The same run, recorded with the +Sony Smartwatch 3 using Ghostracer exported to +RunKeeper

Not as nice as my previous post made from +Strava as it turns into a clickbait to create a Runkeeper account if you don't have one it seems.

+Vassago UT I can tell that at least Ghostracer + My Tracks can record simultaneously, but a third one simultaneously is too much it seems ^_^
Before leaving I also checked and +Endomondo uses more CPU % while recording than the others.

I wish they made something like this for Sony Hybrid cameras (I'm looking at you A6000). Would love to get some Nikon lenses with AF on a Sony hybrid.

This song from Betsie Larkin and Moscow-based DJ Bobina gets me every single time :)

Favorite listening conditions ATM: on headphones, high quality audio source, no distracting music video (just for the share), it's the night already and the melody, Betsie's voice and lyrics combined with this bassline and the full sound somehow triggers all kind of sensations.

+François Simond currently listening to "Trancemutation of the Mind" from ovnimoon.  Somewhat softer bassline and quite enjoyable listening experience. ;)

Clever 8-year-old!
He already figured out how to maximize revenue by capitalizing on fears.

The concept is not exactly original however, I've been told it's also a well established career choice.
NEW YORK—Speaking for the first time since waking from a medically induced coma following a devastating car accident, 8-year-old Aiden Miller recounted an extremely vivid near-death experience Friday that reportedly contained detailed descriptions of heaven, angels, and a six-figure book deal.
