Just posted to Styling Android: BluetoothLE - Part 2

Due to a public holiday in the UK tomorrow, this is being posted a day early. There's not too much BLE content this week as we set up our Activity / Service communications, but hopefully it is interesting nonetheless.

Just posted to Styling Android - Blurring Images - Part 7

In the final article of this series, we approach the blurring slightly differently, and improve our frame rate still further. The solution covered will also perform much better if the area that we wish to blur increases in size.

You can do it that way, but it's lossy and prone to pixelisation artifacts. The solution that I'm advocating is a true blur, and generally looks much nicer, IMO.

In this article we look at performing our blur operation in pure Java and see how it performs in comparison to RenderScript.
