JHOkay, +Jason Howell and +Ron Richards, (Hi, +Gina Trapani!).

It's been a year. Where are we with car audio that integrates with Android? Any improvements or... anything?

We've got an Audi with a cassette deck and it's hurting my feelings.

GTYou had a viewer looking for a way to define a word, in
Jellybean I simply swipe up, and say "Google, define (insert word)"
depending on the word, you get other info such as is it a noun or verb,
showing it used in a sentence, and synonyms plus links to a few
dictionary sites if you need more. 

Its time we embrace the awesomeness of Google Now!

RRHello Jason, Ron and Gina,

Please don't sleep on the Archos TV connect. Let me explain....

I am an early adopter to Google TV. It's lack of rooting ability and
not a proper SDK for developers has hampered growth in the geek
community. I understand why Google would want the device locked down
at first hoping that the TV industry allows streaming from the Google
TV device. At this point if they haven't allowed streaming, I don't
think it'll change. Why not open up the SDK, allow rooting and get
this device rolling with developers.

With that said, I have been using XBMC on a raspberry pi and this is
exactly what Google TV should be.

With that being said, XBMC doesn't work on Google TV (SDK issues) and
the Archos TV connect would allow XBMC to work. A release candidate
has been released for android and it works pretty well.

Free my Google TV!
