Anyone know if this works on the Maxx yet?
 
Starting today, you can mirror exactly what you see on your Android phone or tablet straight to the TV with Chromecast. Whether you’re sharing your family photos from your phone, surfing the web, or searching for your next vacation destination, Chromecast makes it easy to enjoy your favorite entertainment on the big screen TV. Look out for the 1.7 update of the Chromecast app (goo.gl/4ugCaG) on Google Play store to use this new feature, and head to the help center (goo.gl/IKcK3m) to learn more.

You'd think MAXX would be on the list since it has miracast built in, unless the chromecast use a different protocol than miracast to cast full screen

So anyone try the new "Ok Google" hotword functionality on the new Google search app? And if so does it work any better or worse than the "Ok Google Now" function we've always had?

If by any chance folks do use it, for some reason it interferes with the phones capability of recording video. Only way to rectify the problem is by turning it off.

Useful tool for anyone planning on picking up an Android wear device soon.

Sexy! Want!
The Moto 360 isn't actually that big. It's solid and high-end, and it's definitely in the larger end of the smartwatch spectrum, but it quickly felt natural on my wrist. Light, round, and...

This is why IMO so much of modern music is just unlistenable. It's one thing for someone like T Pain or Daft Punk to use auto tune for artistic effect, it's another for a so called "singer" to use it to keep from sounding awful. Makes me respect people like Aretha and Sinatra and the Beach Boys that much more - fantastic vocals back before auto tune existed.

This is an incredible idea. Basically the Project Ara of the PC world, a modular pc anyone could upgrade through plug n play modules. Hope it actually gets off the ground.

Outstanding article about why Android Wear will be huge. It's funny but a lot of the voice activation functionality he mentions, moto x and Droid users already get by default.
 
Why Android Wear is the new iPad   http://goo.gl/pi6WeA

It's bulky and awkward. We have smartphones, so it's unnecessary. It's a solution in search of a problem. You can't read it in sunlight. The screen gets all smudgy. It's too expensive. It's dumb.

That was the consensus "expert" reaction to Apple's iPad four years ago.

Already I'm hearing the exact same list of complaints about Android Wear watches that I heard about the iPad, and for the exact same reasons.

And I'm going to say the same things about Android Wear that I (correctly) said about the iPad: Android Wear will be an addictive and massive cultural phenomenon, and its primary benefit is a lack of features -- minimalism is what makes it so powerful.

But the reason Android Wear is revolutionary, is that it ships out of the box with its Killer App: Google Now.

Android is no longer the ugly duckling

Years ago android was considered clunky, geeky and downright ugly. And that assessment was right. Android was built by geeks for people with a similar mindset. It wasn't as intuitive and didn't have the level of polish iOS had. That has slowly changed over the years, first with 4.0 then with more evolutionary changes from there on. Today no one can look at these screenshots and still consider android ugly or unintuitive. Simple, streamlined and beautiful are the words that come to mind. Android has come a long way since I jumped on with 1.5. Here's to the future and many more great things to come.

Food and service were both top notch. Moussaka and chicken shawarma were amazing and the falafel and hummus were good as well.

One of my favorite Asian food places. Great variety of foods from different regions, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, etc. Thai curry is very tasty.

Excellent chicken shawarma. Had a combo with fries for relatively cheap. Place could be a little cleaner but otherwise decent.

Food took a while to get to our table but it was good once it got there. Mahi Mahi wraps are excellent. Calzones are big enough to feed two. Decor is cool in a retro surfer kinda way. Decent place.
