RRJust listened to you guys stumbling about wondering
why anyone would want local VOICEMAIL!  I've been wanting this feature
for a long time since up here in Canada we don't get free voicemail (and
no access to Google voice).  Voicemail is an extra $7/ month and I've
never needed it badly enough to fork out the extra cash. If we can get
local voicemail that would be amazing.

And you can catch us live every Tuesday starting at 5pm Pacific at LIVE.TWIT.TV. Have a great week!
[1] Google and Samsung have entered into a patent cross-licensing deal that covers both existing patents as well as any patents filed over the course of the next ten years. The extent of the coverage isn't known but the public statement did mention that the deal covers many product categories and not just mobile. So Samsung and Google share patent portfolio. On one hand, patent protection in the mobile space is important thanks to patent troll-ish entities like Rockstar. On the other hand, making the biggies in the industry even bigger might limit the capabilities of newcomers to the market that don't have a piece of the pie.
[2] Could the Nexus line of devices go away in 2015? That's what Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin had to say on Twitter. His sources say to expect 2-3 more Nexus devices before years end and then a complete discontinuation of the Nexus brand, to be rebranded as Play Edition devices instead. Murtazin's success rate with rumors has been mixed, but it still bears an interesting discussion. Is there a reason why this would ever happen? - Nexus devices are usually significantly less expensive than GPE devices. - Both showcase vanilla Android, one of the core reasons for the Nexus platform to exist. - Both have fast updates
[3] Amazon is set to launch a set top box this year for under $300, according to vg247 ("vee-gee 24-7").com's multiple sources. This would bring Amazon's Video-On-Demand service as well as gaming to the living room through Amazon's own hardware. The Amazon settop is being designed with Lab 126, who designed Amazon's Kindle offerings. With 10 million Amazon Prime subscribers, and over 200 million users on Amazon as a whole, this could be a really big deal. Does Amazon benefit more from locking down their streaming content away from Android devices and into their own? They don't do this with books or music.
[4] The race to the bottom might get even more interesting. Motorola's CEO Dennis Woodside told TrustedReviews that the Moto G's $179 unsubsidized price tag is still too steep for much of the world. He said "why can’t these devices be $50? There’s no reason that can’t happen so we’re going to push that." Not necessarily an admission that a $50 per month phone is coming any time soon, but it certainly shows where Motorola's collective brain is at. As for the high end of devices, Woodside continued by saying "Today you have colors and the beginning of materials but you don’t have screen size and you don’t have functionality and we’re going to bring all that in in the next year or so.”
[5] Unnamed Samsung officials are letting it slip that the company is currently working on their own Smart glasses. Tentatively named, you guessed it, Galaxy Glass, the smart glasses would allow users to tether to a smartphone, manage calls and music, and other things like that. It's possible that we may see the glasses at the IFA trade show in Berlin September of this year.
[6] If you plunk down the $1500 for Glass but also want some stylish frames to go along with it, count on adding another $225 to that figure. Google's Titanium Collection offers four frames to choose from, all designed in-house. Existing Glass users can simply detach the Glass unit from existing frames and screw them into the new frames, keeping the electronics intact. Frames are made of Titanium of course, and they won't fit the head unless Glass is actually attached. No prescription lenses are included, but one could add them with a visit to an optometrist. Taking it one step further, Google struck a deal with VSP, the biggest optical health provider in the US, which means subsidized lenses and frames for Glass.
[7] We've known that it was coming, but today, Google announced that developers can begin to make their Chrome Apps run inside Android. It's a developer preview currently running on Apache Cordova framework that allows for the development of mobile apps using CSS, HTML and JavaScript. Existing Chrome apps can easily be ported over to be served up via Google Play. Chrome apps launch outside the browser, can work offline, and have access to APIs not normally available to web apps. Like: identity - sign-in users using OAuth2 without prompting for passwords payments (currently Android only) - sell virtual goods within your mobile app pushMessaging - push messages to your app from your server sockets - send and receive data over the network using TCP and UDP notifications (currently Android only) - send rich notifications from your mobile app storage - store and retrieve key-value data locally syncFileSystem - store and retrieve files backed by Google Drive alarms - run tasks periodically
[8] A post on Reddit could be incredibly useful to you! Yes, you, aspiring Android developer. User SantasChestHairs set a goal in 2013 to develop an Android app by years end with no more than a little Visual Basic knowledge when takeing up the challenge. The user posted a very useful step by step process that illustrates how to emulate what they did.
[9] Games on Glass? Google shows off 5 different ways that you can play games using the tiny screen above your eye ball. They are all fairly simply but showcase what could be possible. Tennis Shape Splitter Balance Clay Shooter Matcher
