AotA 90: The Transparency of a Widget


“This is the dumbest security quiz ever.”

Here it is, episode 90 of our weekly Android talk show podcast thing, Attack of the Androids. Mat Lee here with Eric Finkenbiner and Nick Carroll chatting about the latest Android news of the week, including but not limited to the Motorola X phone, OUYA case mods, Android gaming, Chrome for Android Webrtc support, the Nexus 7 part 2, this week’s app picks and so much more. Thanks for checking out the show.

Eric kind of got an OUYA finally. Not the backer OUYA, but it’s an OUYA nonetheless.

Check out this cool Hellraiser esque OUYA case mod over on the Phandroid site.

If you like Android gaming like we do, Mashable has an Android gaming console guide.

Definitely not as excited about the Motorola X phone as I was. I guess when you say a device is completely customizable, that can be very open to interpretation.

Here’s a link to Eric’s Google+ post with the Moto X Rogers video leak. The voice commands will work always on style, which I guess is cool. The Verge has an article about it here.

Would you like your custom back in ceramic or wood? Android Community has an article about it here.

Chrome for Android is getting Webrtc support. This has some pretty awesome potential.

Let’s test your Security IQ. Do you know your Android mobile threats? Thanks PC Mag, very helpful.

Google is reportedly spending around 500 million dollars on marketing worldwide for the Moto X.

The Nexus 7 2 is coming out soon. Is this what you want, or do the specs leave a bit to be desired? Android Community has an article about it here.

Way back when there was a lawsuit about app store. Two years later, Apple has dropped the lawsuit. You may now once again call them App Stores.

Does this make you miss your flip phone? Flip is always better than slider. Thank you Samsung for bringing back a classic. Android Authority has an article about it here.

SELinux is coming to Cyanogenmod. This is awesome. Android Authority has an article about it here.
