Android “microG” aims to cut out Google (sort of)

Android “microG” aims to cut out Google (sort of)

A group of freedom-fighters wishes to bring a truly open Android to the masses without Google apps. While the average Android user might assume that Google's ownership of Android precludes Google apps appearing on all Android devices, that's just not the case. Google partners go through a certification process that allows devices to run Google Play - that process makes devices "Google Certified." What the microG team suggests is that Google's original AOSP (Android Open Source Project) promise should ring true today. For anyone who wants it.

Low-key? Maybe, but Apple’s event pushed strategy over pizzazz

Familiarity breeds contempt. The internet had, collectively, braced itself for an underwhelming Apple event today and, having gone in with the "meh" bombs primed, was unsurprisingly unsurprised by news of the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. "The Apple event was a wash," the critics declared.

Google wants you to name the new Android

Google wants you to name the new Android

A Google Opinion Rewards poll has been launched to find the next name for the company's next Android dessert. That'll be the next version of the mobile operating system - the naming of which appears to be falling on the user - you. This method of finding the next name for Android was hinted at back in December of 2015 when Sundar Pichai was in India. He also mentioned that it might be named after an Indian dessert specifically - but we'll see.

Freeform, floating windows might be in Android N after all

Freeform, floating windows might be in Android N after all

Android Marshmallow on the Google Pixel C was disappointing in its lack of multi-window support. In truth, however, it already carried the seeds of split window support that is now arriving in Android N. In a similar vein, it seems that Android N lay the foundations of another most wanted Android feature as far as multi-tasking is concerned: free-form, floating windows. Spotted both in code and now also in developer documents, Google has revealed its plans to possibly include the feature in the next Android release. Unless it actually lands in Android N already.

And admittedly, the all sound very, very interesting. Like an iPhone SE that's allegedly a smaller version of an iPhone 6s. And then there's what would have been the iPad Air 3, but now referred to as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. And yes, it's a smaller version of Apple's biggest tablet to date. Of course, it will definitely be more than that.

Samsung to have pressure sensitive, Bluetooth C-Pen stylus

Samsung to have pressure sensitive, Bluetooth C-Pen stylus

Once upon a time, Samsung had two styluses. One was the ever popular S-Pen that could only be found in the company's Note line of devices. The other was a less known, almost forgotten C-Pen, which was, practically, just a Samsung-branded capacitive stylus of the rubbery stub kind. It seems that Samsung will try to revive that C-Pen but also give it a lot more powers this time around. Spotted from a retailer listing a new kind of C-Pen that toted Bluetooth connectivity and a narrower, almost ballpoint-like tip.
