    Yes, although no money this year due to house extension so not allowing myself to get too excited.

    Android TV = an app that runs on your Android 'L' smartphone or tablet! That's a much better idea than having a dedicated box like the Apple TV or Amazon's Fire TV.

    The entire 2015 HD and 4K smart TV ranges from Sony, Sharp, TP vision and Philips will also run on Android TV.





    Chromecast to get live screen mirroring, casting from other networks and Google+ Photo galleries soon « Android Police

    The low-cost streaming device will get newer and more advanced capabilities soon, including the ability to stream the screen contents of your phone or tablet directly to the television.

    The demonstration during the keynote was impressive: after casting the phone screen to the television, the video was smooth and effective, though you could see a tiny bit of lag. In portrait mode it was shown with large black areas to either side, but a quick rotation to full-screen landscape mode was seamless. Chandra showed off the mobile version of Google Earth (with some taxing 3D animation) as well as the phone's camera being mirrored on the screen. Hopefully this means that the wireless latency will be low enough to allow for Android games to be played while mirroring.
    Chromecast will soon allow you to cast from phones and tablets that aren't on the same WiFi network as the Chromecast hardware itself. Chandra demonstrated a phone on a standard LTE network casting to a friend's television based solely on proximity, presumably determined by either 3G or Wifi location. He also said that PIN security and verification could be displayed on the screen.

    Android "L" preview builds for Nexus 5 / 7 (2013) go live tomorrow - 5,000 New APIs, including USB Audio, BT 4.1, Burst Photo « Android Police

    Google will be publishing factory image previews of the "L" release of Android for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (presumably 2013 only) tomorrow morning, that being June 26th. We're guessing anyone can download them, so long as you're comfortable flashing an image to your device.

    I wonder how unlimited the unlimited storage is in Google Drive for Work?

    Unlimit your business with Google Drive for Work « Official Enterprise Blog

    Every year companies create more data than the last, adding megabytes, gigabytes and terabytes. Well, today, we’re taking bytes out of the conversation. For $10/user/month, businesses get unlimited storage for all their employees and can store files up to 5 TB in size.

    All TVs running AndroidTV is interesting, many of the current and last year TVs run android behind the scenes.

    I like the new 'personal unlock' feature of android, which doesn't impose full unlock security when near trusted devices (bluetooth, ssid, your voice). I like the enforced password, but its a PITA in some areas.

    Videos of the keynote.





    Google's new "Material" design language looks good.

    I might give 'L' a try too once I have backed up everything on my phone. The battery life improvements sound good too.

    May be tempted to buy one of the Android wear watches, cheaper than I thought they would be too!

    Will the watches only work with Android L? Are any of the features vendor specific ie Will the Samsung watch work with my S3 even though I am running Cyanogenmod?

    They work with any Android 4.3 and higher, not sure about Cyanogenmod.
