Android Studio 2.0 is one of the most awaited apps from Google for developers this early part of the year. It has been gaining momentum since the app was announced at the Android Developer’s Summit in November, and most developers have been excited at what the preview versions have brought to the table.
It’s no secret that Google is interested in virtual reality. Made out of paper, Google Cardboard is Google’s first foray into VR, but the Search giant apparently plans to release a more advanced product later this year, a “Nexus” of VR headsets, which might be running on its rumored VR-centric Android VR initiative.
Not wanting Facebook to have a monopoly on virtual reality, Google has lately been doubling down on the platform. Their new VR division is overseen by a longtime Google exec and is staffed with talent from around the company. The Financial Times is now reporting that Google is working on more than just a Gear VR-like headset, but rather Android VR.
Google’s recent moves are aimed at making sure Facebook and Oculus do not end up controlling what they consider to be a very important technology. VR head Clay Bavor recently said, “VR is too important and too powerful a medium to be accessible to only a few.”
Choosing an application to install is hard when there are lots of possible projects matching a specific search term. We already list applications based on the integration level and with useful metrics like “is it translated in my language” and this makes sure that high quality applications are listed near the top of the results. For more information about an application we often want a more balanced view than the PR speak or unfounded claims of the upstream project. This is where user-contributed reviews come in.
Getting Started with ZFS on Debian 8
I am quite careful about protecting my files, which include images, videos, and various documents – mostly drafts of my science fiction novels – that I have been working on for years. Images and videos of family, including the birth of my son, his first smile, and other moments are way too valuable for me to lose. But, all sorts of things can lead to data corruption, and I would not be happy if that happened to any of my valuable files. That’s where filesystems like ZFS and Btrfs enter the picture.
