Leak: This is what Android 5.0 Lollipop looks like on the world’s best Android phone

BGR

When we reviewed Motorola’s second-generation Moto X back in September, we called it the best Android phone in the world. Of course, a lot has changed since then. Bigger phones have been released. Faster phones have been released. More powerful phones have been released. In fact, Motorola itself launched a smartphone last week that fits all three of those criteria. What hasn’t been released, however, is a better smartphone. The Moto X offers a size, shape, display, interface, price and user experience that are ideal for the widest range of smartphone users looking for a high-end phone. And soon, it will also offer Android 5.0.

Motorola promised a speedy update to Lollipop for its latest phones and now, a new leak reveals Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop software running on the second-generation Moto X.

7 Apps You Can Use To Build & Nurture Your Network

Betabeat

[via Kmeron/CC-BY-2.0] [via Kmeron/CC-BY-2.0] Like most of today’s executives and entrepreneurs, I’m constantly on the go and in motion. Last week, after a 14-hour jaunt to SXSW Interactive, I hopped on a plane and flew to Palm Springs for the Esri International Developer Summit. At both events, the talk of what’s new in technology, wearables and apps was the buzz or the water cooler conversation de jour. During a five-course meal at Paul Qui’s new restaurant in Austin, technologist and author Brian Solis humorously showed our tablemates the Breathometer, a device that plugs into the base of your iPhone, and can be connected to an app to track blood alcohol concentration when a user blows into a small screen. I haven’t had a drink in seventeen years, but blew a .05 just by attending the event. Oscar Meyer also introduced a device that can be attached to your iPhone and connected to…

USB2Go Is A Smartphone-Powered Micro USB Dev Board For Building Android Connected Gadgets

TechCrunch

Android developers wanting a quicker and easier way to hack around with hardware should point their eyes at this Kickstarter project — called USB2Go — which is aiming to repurpose the micro USB port of your smartphone as a portal for plugging in an ARM Cortex-M3 development board.

The board would then be powered by the phone, doing away with the need for an additional battery (or for wiring things up). Developers also won’t need any ARM programming knowledge either; instead they develop atop USB2Go’s Android API for peripheral control.

The core concept is to make it easier (and potentially cheaper) for Android developers to build external connected gadgets. The USB2Go has an early bird Kickstarter price of $29, rising to $34 after all those early pledges are gone.

“Our competitors are other development boards, but none of them features direct connection to the phone,” USB2Go co-founder Bostjan Mulej tells TechCrunch…

HTC’s latest earnings miss is a dark omen for Samsung and even Apple

BGR

HTC reported another dismal Christmas quarter, posting a razor-thin $10 million unaudited net profit that missed analysts’ expectations by $12 million. And that profit was only achieved thanks to the company’s $265 million sale of its stake in Beats Electronics. This quarter was another letdown in a streak of bad reports that now extends to two years. But it wasn’t just another quarter for HTC — this was a crucial period for the company’s future. HTC launched its heavily marketed phablet, the HTC One max, in key Asian markets and in the United States in November. This was the phone that HTC absolutely needed to turn into a decent hit after the brutal disappointment its well-reviewed HTC One turned into during the summer.

It’s A Wonderful Life, For A Few Of Us

TechCrunch

So where were we? Oh yes: everybodyhates us. San Francisco’s recent Google-bus and “homeless trash” kerfuffles are symptoms of an increasingly broad, deep, and bitter anti-tech animosity. The Economistpredicts: “The tech elite will join bankers and oilmen in public demonology.” The New York Timesconcurs: “Tech workers have, rightly or wrongly, received the blame. Resentment simmers.”

Such ingratitude! What’s wrong with these warped, blinded haters?

…Well, OK, it might be the very real sense that these days, with software eating the world, if you’re not in tech, or you’re not already rich, then you are probably basically screwed for life. “We are in the midst of the worst rental affordability crisis that this country has known.” Unemployment remains high, and many unemployed “may simply give up looking for jobs once their benefits lapse.”

Meanwhile, US income inequality today is the…
