Re: Always a step ahead
Well....let's look at some examples:

 

Chrome OS...the concept of a laptop that has minimun hardware requirements so get online and work mostly on the cloud

 

Google Glasses,

Google self driving car

 

All projects that can be a hit or miss, but it's R&D that can lead to other product sping off/discoveries

Re: Always a step ahead
Really? A step ahead? Cause Apple didn't announce CarPlay last year. ;)

And how's that 64 bit support coming along?

Always a step ahead
Great article Jeff,

This is why I alway say that Google is one of those companies that is not only a step ahead, but the rest of the industry either follows in there steps or tries desperately to play catch up.

Like you mention, some Google projects fail, but it does provide leassons learned that I can bet have provide other projects to be succesful.

Volta
Every other smart phone user is complaining about battery being driained quickly. I think there are apps having features like Volta already there in the market. Volta can be of great help for all Android users.

Being an Android developer, I am looking forward to Material Design. I hope this can bring great improvements to Android app's UI. Nice step by Google.
