This is awesome, but I can't get it to work if the arm is not aligned with the world axes. As soon as the local space for the forearm is no longer the same as world space, it goes all wonky. What am I doing wrong?

I didn't actually do a talk at Google I/O this year--thank God, because I had a miserable head cold the entire week. Instead I did something that in the end turned out to be even better: helped my friends +Glenn Kasten and +Raph Levien put together a kickass presentation. Glenn and Raph put a huge amount of work into making not only this talk, but the actual features they talk about, a reality. They are also geniuses.

Unfortunately it wasn't live streamed, so you'll have to wait a week or two for the video. Follow +Android Developers to find out when it's available.

Don't know about you, but I'm irrationally exuberant about my +Android Nexus 7. Didn't realize how much I would like this form factor until I started using it. I think it's going to be my go-to bedside tablet.

I'm also more excited about Jellybean than i have been about any other release ever. Why? Because for the first time ever, an Android release just feels slick. Fast. "Buttery," as they say around the office. You have to try it out to believe it.

Wish there were a hashtag epic enough to convey the sheer awesomeness that will be my 9am talk with +Dan Galpin. I guess #io12 will have to do. See you at 9am! #closersonly #hardhatrequired

+David Lawerteh Yes, the Moscone Center's awesomeness bandwidth was overwhelmed by our talk, and we had to upgrade to a higher fyps (f*** yeah's! per second) connection. It's up now: Google I/O 2012 - Ten Things Game Developers Should Know

While you're checking out the new Android Developer Site redesign, you might want to check out my new class on creating custom controls. If only to show that you love me. :-)

+Ian Ni-Lewis please, can you how to make the sidebar menu with the actionbar? I can't find how.
We are working on the new segundamano.es app, with the actionBarCompat, and in android < 3.0 it works, but in >=3 the action bar is not moving. How its done the google+ app? How to change the action bar X offset?

Thanks.

Here with an intro by yours truly, "High Performance Audio" By Glenn Kasten and Raph Levien. Aside from a couple of slide glitches near the beginning, it's pretty much perfect. Glenn and Raph really dive deep into the story of audio performance on Android.

ya i didnt get that.  but its like, computer manufacturers like using their own computers, so like, people use macs at apple, PCs at microsoft, and so on. it just seems that google might begin to do the same, but i guess not.  plus, apple and google are unofficial rivals, that is to say, Apple doesn't like google anymore.  because its like, apple doesnt want googles stuff on their iphones and stuff, so I thought google wouldnt like to use macs because of that. I didnt understand =D

Tell me what you think... we had so many suggestions that never got looked at, and each Friday Review was a hodgepodge of semi-random apps and games. We're trying a new format to see if it makes things better. What do you think?
 
This week we're kicking off a new twist to the Friday Review. Instead of having one master voting list for each show, we're moving to a list per week per show--each with its own theme. Next week is News and Tower Defense. Suggest your apps on the Moderator and cast your votes for your favorites each week!

My Google I/O talk with +Dan Galpin (which in turn was an amped-up version of our GDC talk) is finally online! Note the ad that is automatically placed next to it. Hint? Or tribute?

Check out our talk at Google I/O 2012 - Ten Things Game Developers Should Know !

Well too bad they don't know that. Well, I guess if they did, they wouldn't look the part.
