Bonus points for the soundtrack. Kno is a new device, that is geared at the education market (double display, text-book-like shape). It’s a tad big for my taste, but includes some nifty features I’m missing on my iPad (scribbles and notes). Perhaps Microsoft should have another look at their Courier concept.

Google Plussed
Google Plus is releasing a number of new features, one of which is Ripples (pictured above). Ripples visualize how a post is shared across the entire network, as well as within small networks (in G+ parlance, Circles). That is:

The ripple diagram shows this post spreading as users share it on Google+. Arrows indicate a user receiving the post, then resharing. Circles within circles represent a resharing sequence, so large circles indicate busy resharing.

Also released is Google Plus for organizations using Google Apps. This could be interesting for geographically dispersed editorial teams as they collaborate on documents. For example, a reporter has a story in Google Docs and she and her editor can hop into Hangouts (G+’s video conferencing) and co-create within it.
And finally, Picassa got an update. G+ uses this for image sharing and it now includes new editing filters. Google is calling this the G+ Creative Kit:

Google+ Creative Kit, [is] a fast and friendly way to make powerful edits to your photos. Now you can add that vintage feel to your vacation photos. Or sharpen those snapshots from the family barbeque. Or add some text for added personality.

For more, Mashable fills in the details.

An iOS Developer Takes on Android

nfarina:

Recently, we released the Android version of Meridian, our platform for building location-based apps.

We didn’t use one of these “Cross Platform!” tools like Titanium. We wrote it, from scratch, in Java, like you do in Android.

We decided it was important to keep the native stuff native, and to respect each platform’s conventions as much as possible. Some conventions are easy to follow, like putting our tabs on the top. Other conventions go deep into the Android Way, like handling Intents, closing old Activities, implementing Search Providers, and being strict about references to help the garbage collector.

Now, our platform leverages HTML5 (buzzword, sorry) in many places for branding and content display, so we got a fair amount of UI for free. But there was much platform code written in Objective-C that needed translation into Java, such as map navigation, directions, and location switching.

So, we rolled up our sleeves, downloaded the Android SDK, and got to work.
