121

Duh. Duh. Duh-duh-duh-duhhhhhh-duh. Duh-duh-duh-duhhhhhh-duh. Duh-duh-duh-duh.

Coming April 10. All the Star Wars movies. All in one place. (For us, that's Google Play. But it'll also be in the other usual outlets.) With new extras.

All six movies are currently up for preorder on Google Play for $20 each, or $100 for the bundle. (Update: Or $89, apparently, after a late-night switcheroo.) They are, in proper order: "A New Hope," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith."

The Big Android Meat and Greet in pictures

18
BAMG Boat

Developers, enthusiasts, friends, and the desire to see ideas come to life. Oh, and meat. So much meat.

There are hackathons, backyard get togethers, developer summits, and programming sessions for beginners all over the world, all the time. Some of them are fantastic, but none of them are all of these things at once. It's one of the things that has always made the annual Big Android BBQ event in Texas so special, and these new one-day events the IDEAA team has started over the past year exist as unique micro-scale versions of these events. This past weekend, Old Town Alexandria, Va played host to the first east coast version of these smaller events, the Big Android Meat and Greet.

A brief interview with Dr. Joe Cohen on patient data and mobile devices

14
Doctor Joe

Apparently it takes a Physician to develop Physician-focused software. Who knew.

Dr. Joe Cohen isn't exactly what you'd expect when someone says they're about to introduce you to a Pediatrician. As a father of three in the middle of an Android-focused geek event like the Big Android Meat and Greet, the snarky, grinning, friendly individual standing in front of me — with Google Glass on his face, a Moto 360 on his wrist, and a vape in his hand — was certainly not like any Pediatrician I had ever met. Dr. Joe was at this event to talk about a software platform he's been working on, and his team had created a series of software challenges to both participate in the hackathon aspect of the event and help demystify the nature of secure medical information on mobile devices.

It turns out that last part is incredibly important, and in carrying the torch for his own platform it would appear Dr. Joe is well on his way to advancing the state of digital medical record keeping for patients and doctors alike.
