#googleio2014  Peeps, any updates on Android Studio?  When is it expected to hit 1.0?

Looking into home automation gear.  Anyone have suggestions?  Anyone know if  where/how to get discounts for buying in bulk?  I can see myself using 3-6 smart locks. #homeautomation.

I'm leaning toward mi casa verde and Kwikset 910  locks.  Although this looks interesting: http://discover.smartthings.com/?aud=c&uc=d&sell=d&gclid=CL_Gu8ipsb4CFYqFfgodb08A1g

Did you make it out to Kalalau when you were on Kauai?  That hike is seriously intense.

I got into it early (not as an investor) but when it was around $1-$3 a coin.  Didn't buy a bunch but I really do prefer to pay for things with bitcoin over paypal.  I've done some work for bitcoin and it is really nice to get "cash" within a few minutes of sending an invoice across the country.  Currently it does promote hoarding..may always, not sure.  The more I get paid in bitcoin the more I tend to spend in bitcoin but I can see where one would spend in USD because it is viewed as cheaper.  I find it fascinating and the reports of it being dead are just wishful thinking (again).  Bitcoin has a crazy resistance and at the same time fluctuates..but tends to fluctuate upwards.  Insane.

So the new google maps update gets rid of pinned maps.  Why?  I live on an island  where coverage is very spotty in a lot of places.  Caching the entire island is easy/simple and pretty damn important.  Is there a way to get this functionality back?
