Over the past couple hours, the page count on this wiki has drastically dropped. I decided that several categories of articles that we have here are unnecessary, and are lowering the quality of this wiki. I thought that we'd be best off without these articles. I was able to transfer all of the Android related articles to the Android Wiki, and I saved the rest in case they're ever needed.
The criteria for what was deleted is fairly simple. We had around a hundred articles covering devices and applications that were designed to run something created by Google. Some examples are Chrome apps, and Android devices. A couple reasons contributed to this decision. First of all, there are so incredibly many things that would fit into these categories…Read more >
Google I/O 2013 is coming up really soon, it's scheduled for May 15-17th. I plan on watching as much as I can online, and I will be attempting to write articles for everything they announce, as well as a blog linking to all of the new articles. I won't be able to be online all day, so if anyone wants to help, I'd really appreciate it. All's you'd have to do us write an article about whatever you see them announce! :)Read more >
I’m writing this blog because this wiki has had a lot of problems staying active. There are very few users who are actually active here. However, there are users that are active here. While our community may be small and inactive, it has a great amount of potential. My reason for writing this is to ask you, whoever is reading this, to try and contribute to our community. Google is very popular, and this wiki has a lot of potential to become a huge wiki. If we ever want to become that huge wiki, then we need to start somewhere. Please, join our community. Are you interested in Android? Write a blog about some rumors you’ve heard. Start a chat, even if no one’s on. Maybe someone will get on, and you’ll have a nice conversatio…Read more >
If you're familiar with tech rumors at all, you'll know that DigiTimes is one of the biggest starters of rumors. Often their rumors are accurate, but more often they're inaccurate. Either way, there's typically a little bit of truth to their rumors.
Last week they started a new rumor. They said that Asus is working on a second generation Nexus 7 to announce at Google I/O in May! The upgraded one is supposed to be thinner, and have a full HD display. That's 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels. It would be the first 7 inch tablet to ever have a display like that. It also would possibly have a Tegra 4 processor... Maybe... Best of all, it'll still only be $199!Read more >
Google still hasn't sent out the developers version of their Google Glasses that were available at Google I/O, but there's still plenty of stuff that's been discovered about the glasses. I'm going to post the stuff I know on this blog.
One of the ways to control to glasses is by scrolling. To do this, you put your finger on the side of the glasses, and scroll as if it were a touch screen. This is probably a lot easier than making head motions.
One of the biggest issues with the glasses so far is how you input things. So far, we've just assumed that it would all be voice controlled. That is Google's main solution, although they may have another option. Google recently got another patent for the glasses. What it will basically do is project a …
