#AndroidDev #Design

Guess what time it is? That's right, it's time for another itty-bitty utility for Android developers and this time... designers (yes, we love you all too). If you've ever found yourself emailing high-fidelity, full-resolution screen mocks around so that you could preview them live on your device, then this should help you shave a few minutes off that workflow.

Introducing Android Design Preview, a little utility for Mac/Windows/Linux that'll mirror a portion of your desktop screen (such as your Photoshop canvas) to your USB-connected Android device.

To see how it works, check out my screencast introducing the tool below.

As always, all the code is open sourced at, and you can get a Mac Disk Image or an executable JAR for your Mac, Windows, or Linux machine here:


Note that Android Design Preview is still a fairly beta tool, so if you encounter bugs, please file them at the android-ui-utils open source project linked above.


EDIT: Thanks to Amith from our Android framework team for the original code!

I could not re-post the original one so I'm creating a new entry. This is shocking.

"What we are witnessing is the inevitable result of chronic under-funding, poor bureaucratic planning and a discriminatory black hole that has allowed First Nations people to be left behind as the rest of the country moves forward."

A 13-year-old had to shame the government into giving him and his community a school while at the same time "The De Beers Victor Mine is the richest diamond mine in the Western world".

I didn't think I could love xkcd more
Today's xkcd goes far beyond a "comic." xkcd today is an immense infographic on money. You'll need to blog it up and explore to really appreciate what Randall created here.

That was unnecessary
I demand the arrest and fullest prosecution under the law of UC Davis Campus Police Lieutenant John Pike for the unprovoked assault of at least 15 people. according to the following:

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.

United States of America Constitution
Article I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The Verge's [glowing] review of the Galaxy Nexus.

My only real personal gripe is low-light photo quality, although I have a preproduction device. Other than that, easily the best mobile device I've ever used. Hats off to the UX team for all the ICS fit and finish that went into this.

Child Poverty greater in USA than in 27 other OECD countries...
The numbers, and many charts are provided in a recent study by Bertelsmann Stiftung.
A sobering quote concerning general poverty in the USA: "The United States (27), with its alarming poverty levels, lands near the bottom of the weighted index, ranking only slightly better than its neighbor Mexico (30) and new OECD member Chile (29)."

The full report, "Social Justice in the OECD – How Do the Member States Compare? Sustainable Governance Indicators 2011" can be found at:
