It's Friday the 13th, which for some folks is a day of doom and gloom. But we have so many days like that we figured with turn things on their head and break down the latest with the release of Android 5.1 Lollipop, rap a bit about the new devices we've still got coming our way, Russell nerds out on some 3D printing — and, yes, we'll devote precisely 270 seconds to the damned Apple Watch.

OK, maybe a little more than that. Enjoy!

Android Central 227: Five Point One Of Us ...


For me the appeal of the Shield console is UHD/4k, I have succeeded in getting Android to run, on a Chinese cheapie. I used a you tube downloader, put it on a USB stick, which was very nice, but then it broke down. Running a 32 GB Nexus 9, can't wait for 5.1, but I know what Jerry's saying, version numbers are not that important. Still I'd like to see a second generation, 64 bit operating system, from a cleanish boot. Now let's put on our tin foil hats and realise that Android 5.1 Lollipop, was written by aliens from Area 51. They're hidding their conspiracy, in plain sight !!°¿? (Just ending with my Illuminutty, free madson call sign.)
