I recently noticed that I'm getting dodgy ads on YouTube on a mildly regular basis and the ad in question isn't just dodgy. It's a scam. And obviously so. Usually I just report them. But this one is a little special.
While Google anounced the N5 and Android 4.4 it also revealed which devices are getting updates. Those will be the N4, N7 and N10. But not the Galaxy Nexus. Quite to some displease with Galaxy Nexus owners.
I've been using Google Now on a secondary account now for quite some time with settings to flank speed. Meaning Google had access to every option that you could set in Now to obtain more data to be fed into Now.
I already suspected the problem when I first had the misfortune to run into Hangouts a couple of days ago. That suspicion is official now. Talks federation with other servers is a matter of the past. Hangouts will not support it and thus all your non talk contacts will no longer be able to contact you. Or you them for that matter. Hangouts for now supports XMPP with Google only. So at least you can use another client for text only.
Google Hangouts is primed to replace Talk. I'm not sure if it just replaces talk if you install it or if it's supposed to replace Talk in general. Either way. The App is a fail of epic proportions.
Once upon a time in a country far, far away - where you could copyright shitting checker patterns onto coffee tables - a bunch of pathetic knights of the order of the law decided to take down the Kraken. A giant monster who could suck source code through a garden hose as if it were a golf ball.
