So we announced some #AndroidWear  stuff today. [If you haven't, go to android.com/wear, watch the fun videos and read about the new devices coming out, and then come back.]

The most exciting bit right now is that there's an SDK Preview you can download today (http://developer.android.com/wear) to experiment with the interface. The primary mode of supporting this new platform from your app is via Android's Notifications APIs, which as you might imagine is very exciting to me. :)

More on tuning your Notifications for Android Wear here: http://developer.android.com/wear/notifications/creating.html

Congrats to the Android Wear team for a great unveiling!

Even though I'm sad to see the Sox lose, that was the right call according to the current rules.  I hope they revisit the rule though as there was nothing Middlebrooks could do, he didn't trip on his feet so the fact they were raised shouldn't matter.  Craig tripped on Middlebrooks body who had no chance to move his body out of the way without interfering more...  Even with a rule change I'm sure there would be even more room for getting it wrong due to interpretation such as with Middlebrooks lifting his legs in this case :-/

In the end Middlebrooks just needs to learn to hit the ball and catch it, he should have fielded Holliday's 2 run double and he should have caught Salty's throw so it should never have been that close anyhow...

Really wish both Middlebrooks and Drew could both be out of the game.  Let's put Bogarts at SS and Napoli at 3B while Ortiz is at 1B.  While we are at it, Salty is suppose to be an offensive improvement but Ross seems to be hitting just fine so with Salty's cold bat, his error last game and that throw, I'd move Ross in ahead of him.  That would be my line up, anyone else agree?

I love my original Eye-Fi card, this sounds even better!
 
Memory card sends pictures from your camera to your phone (no Internet required!).

Remember Eye-Fi cards, which sent pictures from your regular camera to your PC over the Internet? The new one requires neither the PC nor the Internet!

Called the Eye-Fi Mobi, the card looks and works like a regular storage card, but acts as a WiFi hotspot. You connect your phone or tablet to the card using a free app, and your pictures are constantly moved to the mobile device. 

The Mobi card costs $50 for 8GB and $80 for 16GB and ships today. 

I wonder if your regular photos will then be instant-uploaded to Google+ and Auto Awesomed, just like your phone pictures.

If you haven't tried Google Public DNS, it's really fast and has great uptime. You just set your DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Give it a try!

Holy smokes!
Teacher +Jennifer Magiera created the video below to demonstrate how easy it is for schools to set up Nexus 7 tablets with Google Play for Education.  Three second graders provisioned or "bumped" 25 Nexus 7 tablets in 210 seconds, which Jennifer describes as a "holy smokes moment" on her blog, "Teaching Like It's 2999."

Thanks +The Jimmy Fund and +Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for organizing Fantasy Day (http://www.jimmyfund.org/eve/event/fantasy-day/default.html )!!!

Hitting against Keith Foulke was amazing!  This video shows what it feels like catching fly balls in left field in front of the Green Monster at Fenway Park!!!  Can't wait to do it again next year, I had the time of my life!

I love going to China Sky to eat but also their take out is ready quicker then any restaurant I've ever taken out from. It's never been a wait longer then 10 minutes till it will be ready. Their Sunday lunch specials are the perfect amount of food and variety. My favorite dish is the Sesame Chicken.
