I'm unbelievably excited to say that I'm joining Google's Design Relations team 😁✏️
http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/03/20/saying-goodbye-android-police-hello-google/

Today, I'm leaving Android Police. And while I'll definitely miss hanging out in Slack with the awesome writers, editors, and producers of AP (yes, even +Artem Russakovskii 😸), I'm so excited to see what's ahead of me at Google.

As I wrote in the post, this does mean that I'll also be transitioning away from some of my freelance projects like Nova Launcher. Working with Kevin and Cliff has been absolutely amazing, and I've learned a ton about the platform during my time with Nova. So if you're a UIUXer reading this who's interested in helping out with Nova, drop us a line: https://goo.gl/forms/8rcvRtvvfCvSIKhv2

You'll still see me on G+ and Twitter, and I plan to continue (and ramp up) recording for Design Notes and live streaming design on Twitch & YouTube.

If you've followed me for long enough, you know that this move has been a long-term goal of mine for a while so I can't wait to get started and help even more partners have success through design on Android.

Today's Google Doodle (re: exoplanet discovery announced yesterday) is a classic.

Chromebook Help Needed - my Google-fu is failing me. We got my son his first Chromebook for Christmas this year. I'm in the process of configuring everything ahead of time, but I'm running into a bit of a snag. I don't want him to have full access to my Google account, but it appears that Supervised Users/Guests are extremely limited in what they can do on the Chromebook. Specifically, my son would be playing a fair number of Android games (which I've already downloaded and tested on the Chromebook, and they work very well), but those wouldn't be available for him as a Supervised User.

Is there some sort of child-proof mode I can stick him in so that my account is protected, but he still has access to apps and games? He's too young to have a Google account (their minimum age is 13, and he's 7). Thanks!

Barring that, I may have to set him up his own Google account and he may just have to start his games over with a clean slate, which would be a bummer but will have to happen some day anyway, I suppose.

#TBT: To 1956 when it took four men and a truck to transport 5MB of memory - or the equivalent of 1 song.

Looking for input: I want to get matching tablets for my kids for Christmas - budget of $200 each. I'm thinking the Shield K1 is the best choice, even though it's been on the market for a year now.

(On a side note, I can't believe there haven't been any new non-crap tablets released since then, but here we apparently are.)

This whole 1.75hrs of SOT per charge thing is getting really old.
