The President's Day Weekend is seriously catching up with me — what, it's not a major party holiday where you live? — so I'll keep things short this week. Here are a few thoughts on the week that was, and the weeks ahead.
- Chances are you've noticed already — we're continuing our long, drawn-out redesign. Articles are starting to look a little different. Not all of them yet, and we're still nailing down exactly what we want and how we want to use it. But the change continues.
- Interesting read in TechCrunch on the two Googles.
- A great Q&A on Android security. I'm pretty proud of that whole series we've done lately.
- Loved this 'shop from Derek Kessler.
- No, Apple's not making a minivan. I'm not even anywhere near convinced it's trying to make a car. More likely it's doing some serious work on what's on the inside.
- That said, I'm still all for anyone shaking up the auto industry.
- Sometimes headlines just write themselves.
- There's some really great EE knowledge in those comments, too. I was more focused on the size and shape of the chargers.
- We'll look at some third-party ones this week, including quick-charging in the car.
- We're two weeks out from Mobile World Congress. Or, more accurately, the day before the show starts, and it's going to be insane.
- Why do I have a feeling Samsung's going to drop something truly unexpected on us?
- A 14-day grace period for imminent fixes seems like a fair compromise for Google's Project Zero.
- So many tributes to the late David Carr this week, but Jeff Jarvis' may well be my favorite.
- And while the video of Carr taking no shit from the founders of Vice is the one getting all the play, it was the one where Jarvis and Shane Smith discuss Vice's growth and maturity that was far more interesting.
That's it for this week. See y'all Monday.
