Big Android BBQ 5: three days of food, fun, and Lollipop

16
This is a big-boy pit for bit-boy cue.

The Big Android BBQ is something of a unique Android event most years in that it's usually a few weeks before the next version of Android is released. This means that while project teams for things like CyanogenMod can still discuss a good many things, most are still waiting on the new version of Android in order to announce when and what features will be coming to their products and their users.

Weekly poll results, and the return to normalcy

49
Google Plus poll results

The results are in — polls will remain on the homepage

We tried a little experiment last week with our weekly poll. Google did a really nice job with the way they handled the implementation of embedding a poll into a post and we had to give it a spin. It looks good, and more importantly, is easy to set up. A week later, I've looked at the results, read all the comments and email, thought about the numbers and have decided to keep the polls right here on the AC homepage.
