Guess I'll start the witch hunt for apps that use location and don't really need it. Thanks.

This is a funky mix of tunes.
What if the harpsichord from the 1770s hit headlong into the talk...

It's hard to pick a favorite quote from today's #LeadChangeGroup  post from +David Dye but I think I need to go with "You  Can't Beer Your Way Out of Poor Leadership"!

I wish that the tools:layout attribute worked on FrameLayouts that are holding a place where a fragment will be placed.  

 <FrameLayout
         android:id="@+id/calendar_day_view_container"
         android:layout_width="match_parent"
         android:layout_height="match_parent"
         android:layout_below="@id/date_header"
         android:layout_above="@id/footer"
         tools:layout="@layout/calendar_day_availability_list_view"
         />

+Deepanshu Gupta sorry I just realized it was logged as a defect. Don't know if there is a "feature request" option, but I can't change it now.

Please share if you know anyone who might be interested!

Our next Android Bootcamp will be in the Mile High City! Come join us, or share with a friend you know in the region who wants to learn Android development.
Typically we divide the training days into four sessions. Two sessions before lunch, and two sessions after lunch. Between any two sessions, we take a break. Short 15-minute breaks in the morning and the afternoon, and usually an hour-long lunch-break. The last hour is usually reserved for ...

I've got a few of questions about the C2DM shutdown in april.

1. When this service is shutdown what will be the response to server side code trying to create messages? 

2. If an app tries to register with C2DM will it crash - or just silently fail?

3. When in April will this happen? April 1?

We've already migrated to gcm, but we still have users on versions of or app that are using c2dm. So when this gets turned off we WILL have existing registrations on or server that are c2dm . I would like to know if we need to disable the send attempts from our server before the c2dm services are turned off, or if we get some sensible error message we we try to send and we can just let the messages fail.

3 years in the making, this clock contains everything from a simple wristwatch and contains no microchips.
I. The project. Simply named " The Clock ", this piece of art is not only doing what is supposed to do "keeping time" But also is visually extraordinary. What you see, is not only the time that it shows, but all of the electronic parts that you would find inside the microchip of a wrist watch if ...
