Boot your phone off the network. For normal usage, not a huge deal, but very cool for odd use cases.

I love open source projects! :D
 
CyanogenMod and Cornerstone

We wanted to do a followup post on CM and CS, since there was a lot of excitement over the past few days.

Cornerstone is not ready If we could make this larger and fiery red, we would.

# The code is still in its infancy (version .8).
# There are very legitimate concerns surrounding just how to solve compatibility issues with the thousands of applications in the market.
# We drew the attention of Google engineer(s), who have rightfully pointed out concerns (thank them for taking the time) - comments can be read on Cyanogen's re-share of the original post. If you choose to comment, do so intelligently and in a civil manner!
# We've also contacted the original developers for input and consultation.
Edit # And now Onskreens CEO is weighing in on the discussion

All said, there are many hurdles to overcome before Cornerstone is merged into CM9, if at all. We ask that you realize this, and see blog posts and pictures and alphas as merely technical proof of concepts, and nothing more. Frankly, we are months out from CS being ready, and it'll likely take longer to address all the concerns.

Now I need to get a Chromecast!
 
AllCast - MediaRouter support

One of the things I hadn't really talked about is that AllCast plays nicely with the Android MediaRouter APIs.

That means if third party applications support the standard Android MediaRouter APIs (introduced in 4.1), they can cast their music/videos through AllCast. The MediaRouter stuff is pretty awesome; it's unfortunate that Google hasn't really pushed it that much. I think Chromecast adoption will help that though.

Here's a code sample on how to use the MediaRouter APIs with AllCast (or any other provider).

This is so sad! If I wasn't planning to purchase the nexus 5 I would be buying the Surface 2. Sorry Microsoft!
Microsoft's tablet debut is loud and colorful and full of enthusiasm. The only thing it's missing is people that want to buy its new device. Read this article by Nick Statt on CNET News.
