Earlier this month, I had the idea occur to me that I sometimes lack the proper appreciation of the making of games and software, that we use. So, with a few emails, and a weekend road-trip, I have some interviews to share. These take quite a bit of time to set up, so don't expect them to come out super frequently, but as quickly as I can have Devs sign on, Ill make more. So I present for your consideration, the first in a continuing series on the Game development process; My interview with Paige Ashlynn of Team Tripleslash/Tripleslash studios, makers of Magnetic By Nature.

Android chief Sundar Pichai just confirmed today that Google plans to reveal the next version of Android at the Google I/O 2014 developer's conference starting June 25th. Pichai made it clear that the reason why Google is deviating from the norm is because developers and OEMs have been wanting more time with the OS, and he wanted to make that happen.

He elaborated that it's meant to be a big shift toward greater transparency, adding “I want the world to understand what we are doing sooner.”

Pichai didn't go into any further details and gave no mention of which "L" name the next Android version will have.

Beyond that, according to the report at Business Week, Pichai also made it clear that Android Wear will be another primary topic of discussion during the conference. Here's a quote with a few more details,

He’ll also talk about Android Wear, a version of the operating system for fitness trackers and wearable computers, and he’ll announce new manufacturing partners and devices. Google is racing against Apple, which will introduce its iWatch in the fall. Pichai says it’s “crazy” that people visit their doctors, at most, once a year to have their heart rate and blood pressure measured. “You obviously need to be able to measure these things so many more times and then apply more intelligence to it,” he says.
This same report suggested we could also get a glimpse of Android TV. We will keep you apprised all day Thursday and Friday of any interesting developments from the conference.

It looks like we have some solid new intel on Google's Nexus 9 tablet. According to a report from AndroidPolice, the previous rumors of an HTC made Nexus tablet are true. Their intel again reveals a tablet called the HTC Volantis (or internally called Flounder). Not only do we have a spec list for the upcoming device, but we also have a couple of marketing images and a Q4 release timeframe.


Check out the pics above, and continue reading here: [Rumor] HTC Volantis Tablet aka Nexus 9; Tegra K1 Chip, 8.9-Inch Display & Coming Q4

Wow! This news is rather anti-climactic, but is also a relief. Samsung and Apple have finally tired of the "Thermonuclear" patent war. Apparently, the two companies want to drop the fight because they still want access to each other's business. Here's a quote with more of the details,

Tired of spending money on legal disputes, both tech giants are looking for ways to end their years of legal wrangling. In addition, Apple apparently wants to continue to have access to Samsung as a component supplier.

Both Apple and Samsung are said to have dropped all cross-appeals filed with the ITC last year. The agency ruled in 2013 that Samsung had infringed on a pair of Apple's patents relating to a touchscreen interface and headset plug detection. Since Sammy's devices banned by the ITC are older models that are no longer manufactured, and newer devices are shipped with a workaround, the ITC suits are not as important to Apple as they once seemed to be.
It's about time reason prevailed...
