“I haven’t slept since I got here, seriously though look at this phone, it’s amazing!”
Thanks for joining us for another episode of AotA. Mat Lee, Eric Finkenbiner, and Nick Carroll back after a couple of weeks off with the latest Android news. For episode 118 we talk about Portal for the Shield, the new Humble Bundle, the One Plus, some patent wars, the HTC M8, the G Watch, and so much more. Plus this week’s ridiculous app picks. Just keep in mind that April 1st is pretty much the worst day to do a podcast. With that in mind, enjoy the show.
Portal is coming to Android… At least if you own the Nvidia Shield. We’ll see how long that lasts. Ryan Whitwam wrote about it here on Android Police.
Get the new Humble Bundle, and support great developers. Humble Bundle 9 is available for ten more days, so get on it!
Android 4.5 might be called Lollipop. That’s pretty much all they know in this article, and they don’t even know that. David Gilbert wrote it up here.
Do you +1 the One Plus? Eric doesn’t. If you do, you might be able to get one on April 23rd. You can even get one in silk. Kyle wrote about it over on Droid Life.
Is Apple attacking Samsung? Does Samsung deserve it? Who cares? I can’t even pretend to care about this crap anymore. If you do, read the article by Shara Tibken over on Cnet.
What could make the HTC M8 any better than naming it the Mate? A light bright like case. That’s actually kind of cool, if you grew up in the 80s as we did. Nick really digs this one. Joanna Stern wrote about it on the Wall Street Journal.
Want another choice when it comes to the whole smartwatch thing? LG has you covered with the G Watch. Get it? You can get a G watch for your G unit. Rich Trenholm wrote about it here on Cnet.
Hugo Barra threw out an interview to Cnet, talking about how awesome his new life and job are. We’re glad you’re happy Hugo, now make something cool for the world. Aloysius Low wrote about it on Cnet.
