iPad mini has stereo speakers

Wake me, I must be dreaming, because it turns out the iPad mini has stereo speakers. Apple didn’t announce it during the iPad mini event, but they’re clearly shown (if not clearly labeled) on Apple.com. (Really, Apple should have talked about this in the iPad mini video at the very least!)

Google’s Nexus 7 also apparently has stereo speakers and Google also apparently isn’t bothering to mention it. That may be becuase small external stereo speakers on a device as small as a the iPad mini aren’t going to be anything like giant stereo speakers in your home theater, and a good headset will still give the best experience. Still, every little bit helps.

First the EarPods, now stereo speakers on an iOS device? I take back 12% of the complaints I’ve made about Apple ignoring audio. [An argument could be made for 15% - Rene]

Thanks John!

LG Nexus 4 back up for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Android Central

After unceremoniously leaking its LG Nexus 4 product page last week, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse is once again showing the handset as available for pre-order. This time the expected delivery date is Nov. 13, same as the international Google Play launch date for the device.

As before, there's no SIM-free price listed — on Google Play prices start at £239 — and on-contract rates on Vodafone and O2 start at £31 per month with a free Nexus 4.

With O2 being the only UK network to directly confirm that it'll be offering the Nexus 4 directly, this could give those looking for a subsidized Nexus 4 on Vodafone the chance to pick one up for free. But with the Google Play SIM-free price being so low, any network-subsidized prices starting around the £30 mark are going to be a tough sell.

Obama Situation Room Photo Op: Yes for Hurricane Sandy, No for Benghazi

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

On Monday, the White House eagerly distributed a picture taken that day of President Obama in the situation room with his top aides discussing responses to Hurricane Sandy. The Obama administration has yet to distribute the picture of the President in the situation room on September 11, 2012 where he reportedly watched but did nothing to stop the Islamic militant attack on our mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans. 

Mainstream media press outlets were more than happy to provide content and analysis to support the messaging the administration wished to convey with the Hurricane Sandy situation room photo op. Business Week, for instance, noted that President Obama spent part of Monday in the White House situation room:

Shortly after 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Air Force One touched down at Andrews Air Force Base, amid a steady rain and gray clouds. The landing was a bit rocky. By 10:40, President Obama had boarded his motorcade and was en route to the White House.

The first thing the president was to do when he got there was to lead a teleconference in the Situation Room with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, and National Hurricane Center Director Richard Knabb. 

On Sunday, the Obama administration was also eager to show a photo taken that day of President Obama at Federal Emergency Management Administration offices in Washington as Hurricane Sandy approached the east coast.  In that picture, the American flag was conveniently placed in a prominent position immediately behind the President. 

While President Obama has been eager to report his presence in the situation room on October 29, 2012, the administration has refused to comment on reports that he was also in the situation room on September 11, 2012, watching the Benghazi debacle unfold in real time.

Diner Dash now available on Amazon’s Kindle Fire

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Android Central

Mobile game Diner Dash has made its Android debut on the Amazon Kindle Fire.

Bad news for fans without an Amazon tablet though, because the game appears to be exclusive to the Kindle Fire for now. Searching for it on the Amazon Appstore on a different Android device returns no results (although the results return plenty of similar games to be downloaded).

The game may seem a little dated, but its publisher, PlayFirst, reminded us that it’s enjoyed over 650 million downloads worldwide.

Diner Dash was developed by GameLab before PlayFirst acquired the rights to own it. If you haven’t had enough, the game has spawned four sequels since its initial runaway success.

LG Electronics joins Linaro

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

LGWhile this isn't directly Android related, it's important to support and develop open-source software on ARM devices, and this is great news. LG Electronics is joining other corporate giants like IBM, Samsung, and Texas Instruments as a member of the Linaro group.

While many an Android hacker or nerd recognizes the Linaro name when coupled with a special compilation toolchain, not everyone knows just what the Linaro group's goals are. Linaro works with partners like Adeneo Embedded and Canonical to create core open-source software that benefits the entire group versus each company at odds with each other.  

We've seen what that can do with the aforementioned Linaro Android toolchain. Things run better, are more efficient, and most importantly, patently unencumbered when the right minds all work together on it. It's great to see the some of the folks responsible for the latest Nexus devices as a part of it all, and to see partners with such a vested interest in Android.
