Tonight In Android [4/14/11]


Instead of my normal nightly posts, I have decided to give you tonight’s Android news in video form! Trying something a little different from the same ‘ol, same ‘ol.

News can be kind of skimpy during these wee night hours so I figured it might be easier for you to just kickback and watch a video of tonight’s happenings in the wonderful world of Android. Enjoy.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Hi Chris! This is a nice comment! [Edit: I think I love you] #SmartAssComment
    Haha, but no really, the video kind of reminds me of The Feed on AOTS.

    1. I have the power.

  2. I thought this was a pretty awesome idea. You’re quickly becoming my favorite writer here on Phandroid

    1. I think you’re copying what Helen Keller said……. *glare*

      1. Or maybe Keller looked into the future and knew I was gonna say it before him and then beat me to the punch

      2. Keller would never link his Facebook profile. He has been banned multiple times from Engadget.

      3. Keller is my first name.And maybe I did, Nick, maybe I did……

  3. Great video brosky. Your a funny mofo. Next time say “keller” in you next video. Also nick kane copied and pasrted what I wrote in another article about you becoming a favorite writer, fyi

    1. I did nothing of the sort. i just feel the same way you do lol

    2. There’s plenty of me to go around…… o_O

  4. Your clock is broken…The sun goes down, yet it remains 3 o’clock.

    1. LOL! Good eye! That thing has been broken for over 10 years! I kid you not…

  5. Worst phone name- apple i-phoney

  6. Sorry guy. Not interesting, not funny. At least in a video. How about doing both written and video if that’s the way you want to go. This is an information site, not a youtube channel, which is exactly how you come across with the scene cuts. On youtube, it would just be something I wouldn’t watch and move one. For this site, it’s a fail since I come here expecting information. I can’t watch this. Sorry.

    1. Thanks for the… apology? o_O

    2. You dont need to watch nub! He also wrote it out

    3. Wow was it really that serious lol

  7. whats the deal with your window? How is it a outdoor view sometimes and a office other times?

      1. At 1:19 there appearers to be blue sky outside the window, at 1:22 it looks like an office through the window. Am I missing something?

        1. I was wondering the same thing!

          1. HAHA! Window that only shows a reflection at night! =D

          2. Good I was beginning to think I was crazy! Sweet video BTW, this site needs more video!

        2. LOL!!!!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh… A lot of people had been asking me that and I had NO IDEA what they were talking about.
          Its a window but during the night it shows a reflection! =p

  8. not bad… i made it to 2:03 before i stopped the video

    1. I only made it to 30 seconds =/

  9. I thought this was a great way to report the nightly android news. I would suggest you keep both the video option and the print option so readers can choose either or both. Great job!

    One other small critique..next time don’t swivel around in your chair so much.

    1. Thanks for the input! Definitely gonna have to use a regular chair next time. Its too hard to resist the swivel! =/

  10. 4shared music app? 4shared as in….piracy DDL central?

    1. LOL! Funny thing is, I got an email yesterday from them saying the ringtones I have on my account are “copyrighted material” and they’re going to delete my account if it happens again.
      I was like “WTF?”

      1. Are you serious?! Well, I guess they have to evidence that they TRY to keep content legal lol

        1. LOL They’re bastards. =p

      2. Also, your shirt is epic.

        1. Thank you, sir. Target. $12 =)

  11. Not much for the videos either, thats what podcasts,etc… are for. I check phandroid for some good bathroom reading. Not some ones meager attempt at a little humor, you should just offer a bi-daily or weekly podcast since you enjoy making videos so much…no offense or anything, not bashing, more like constructive criticism.

    1. Yeah, after this video I’ve kinda decided to keep this as a weekly thing. Definitely easier for everyone involved if I do regular posts..

  12. Put time markers for each topic so we can fast forward to the info we want to listen to.

    1. That is a freakin’ wonderful idea! :O

  13. is that your girlfriend in that pic behind you?

    1. That’s my sister, I’ll have you know! >:O

  14. Keep up the good work bro!

  15. I could only watch bits and pieces of this video because it took forever to load on 3g.

    1. Who’s 3G are you using????? =O

  16. iPhone is the worst phone name I have ever heard.
