Last week, the first book in the Android Deep Dive series became available. With that book, we aimed to set a new standard for books about embedded Android, and the author, Roger Ye has done it. You can find the book here:

http://www.amazon.com/Embedded-Programming-Android-Bringing-Scratch/dp/0134030001/

The next book in the series is called Android Concurrency, by G. Blake Meike. Threads and background tasks are critical to responsive interactive android applications. If you want to learn this key element of being a great Android coder, you can get a pre-release look at the material for this book by participating in reviewing and commenting on the manuscript.

Contact me, either in reply to this post or at zigurd.mednieks@gmail.com, if you are interested in both getting early access and contributing to the success of what will be an amazing book.

I'm the series editor for a "Deep Dive" series being published by Addison-Wesley, on Android programming. AW has asked me to get more books started. I'm looking for authors for a book on graphics APIs in Android and on user interface APIs.

I need one or two authors for each book. If you are an experienced author, if you know one, or if you want to try your hand at writing about programming, or if you know someone who should, please contact me to express your interest or connect me with the person you have in mind.

We've had two first-time authors participate in the series with excellent results. This series is a great way to get into working with a first-tier publisher, and to gain the contacts that can get you represented by a top literary agent.

Links to the first three books in the series are here:
http://www.amazon.com/Embedded-Programming-Android-Bringing-Scratch/dp/0134030001
http://www.amazon.com/Android-Concurrency-G-Blake-Meike/dp/0134177436
http://www.amazon.com/Android-Database-Best-Practices-Deep/dp/0134437993

Be a part of the biggest and best series of books on Android software development!

I bought my mum an Amazon Echo http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X4WHP5E/

She liked Kindle e-readers since I bought her one of the first ones, and she has Amazon Prime.

Unlike most gadgets that push the speech recognition boundaries, the Echo is a true delight. Straight out of the box, with just a couple minutes of setup, it was responding to everyone's commands and, in the vast majority of cases, delighting, not frustrating. That's an enormous accomplishment for a product that is, in many ways, much more ambitious than Amazon's failed attempt at a phone.

Speech wonks will be amazed at the accuracy of recognition. You don't have to be anywhere near the Echo to speak a command. It is a triumph of speech hardware/software integration.

Everyone at the Christmas visit to grandma's was charmed by Echo. My mum just sent an email indicating that the charm hasn't worn off.

There is only one minor quibble: The Echo can play Audible audiobooks, but it cannot read aloud a Kindle e-book. We did not even explore any of the home automation tie-ins, so I can't say how well that works.

Echo is a winner and will probably pull along a lot of Kindle Fire tablet sales and will be an anchor of Amazon's strategy to dominate entertainment. Maybe not iPhone huge, but Amazon deserves to get a huge boost from this product.

Today I learned that Topsy was not unusually large. I'm grateful I seldom if ever abused that.

Regular-sized Topsy now sits alongside the fact that there is no proof in pudding, and that begging a question doesn't mean you hinted that it should be asked, as things I'm compelled to correct. I apologise in advance.
