Want any Android app running on Chrome OS? This little hack is pretty handy

With Chrome OS gaining some capabilities for running Android apps (4 to be precise) someone has hack the android app runtime on chrome which pretty much allows any APK to run :)

This to me signifies that the runtime is pretty much ready... however I would like Google to take another approach

Within the Manifest, you should define that the android app is able to run on Chrome OS. When that flag is set, all layouts should be defined in the layout-chrome resource. Within that you define how the application is presented (could even be in HTML, but might be quite hacky to be compatible with other layouts). This will allow better integration with Chrome and also force developers to think better when making apps, i.e. use freaking fragments!!!

I paid £6 for this and man it is brilliant. It is slightly too small for my Nexus 5, however my old Nexus 4 fits nicely inside it.

To think that this VR is basically my phone is mind blowing... Now I understand that we do need more pixel in our phone... lets hope for over 1000PPI :P

The no. 1 feature I would want for Chrome OS is local passwords to login

The no. 1 feature I would want for Chrome OS is local passwords to login

With the recent leak of Gmail passwords to the web, the one thing I would love is the ability to set a different password that will only be tied to the Chrome OS device you are using.

At the moment I do use a very long password for Google which I memorise, but I also use a password management tool, lastpass to make sure I create very long and complicated passwords. The problem is for a Google account not everyone is like me and remembers a very long password because you need it to log into your Chrome OS device.

I would like when you first log on to a new Chrome OS device that it gives you the ability for that particular Chrome OS device to set a local OS password that only the device knows. Then the next time you log on, you can either use your Google password or the local password you have given to that device. This means I can continue to use LastPass and set really long passwords whenever I need to change my …

Don't screw up +Motorola Mobility, +Lenovo!!! #Moto

Don't screw up +Motorola Mobility, +Lenovo!!! #Moto .

+The Verge has a brilliant article on Motorola new product line up, and it struck me how much Motorola has change in 2 years since +Google took over them. Their design has got so much better and concentrated on hardware and leave the main bulk of the software with people who knows what they are doing.

You can see the amount of effort that has gone into designing their product range and it can only be done if people are given the freedom to do what they think is best instead of hitting numbers.

Lenovo, please do not screw it up, you have something special here!!!

I want a brown strap for the Moto 360, but there’s none available at launch. "Patience, grasshopper," Jim Wicks tells me, looking over a colorful sample book of leather swatches.
