WiFi Aware in Android O - Lots of applications for this

This technology which will soon be available in Android O is pretty interesting... I can see this being applied to AR. But for now, I can see this being used in transport apps, mapping services and dare I say it, advertising...

In a year that's been synonymous for things coming to an end, even the Nexus Brand would meet it's demise. Some say it was unwarranted, others say it was long overdue, I say it's right on time for a myriad of reasons.

Back in 2008, then CEO of Google Eric Schimdt sat on the Board of Directors at Apple and released the G1 a year after the original iPhone. Schimdt ultimately resigned from Apple in August '09 and in 2010 came the Iconic Nexus One. The Nexus One took the Android brand to the next level in terms of software, and hardware. Steve Jobs would go on to say the creation of Android was a "slap in the face." Fast forward 8 years and the Nexus brand is now defunct.

Is it me or is this wrong. Whenever a new version came out it was put on AOSP within a few weeks or a month tops. As we probably have 2 or 3 rounds of the dev preview it will be around Feb when we will get official 7.1 on AOSP for partners like Samsung, HTC to start building towards. This is such an unfair advantage to the Google Hardware team. So much for a firewall...

Anyway I think this is a dangerous precedent we are heading towards. All OEMs and Partners should be on a level playing field, but Google just gave themselves a 6…
