Google I/O 2013 is entering day two in San Francisco and a Google Glass developer session is happening right now. The focus is on the current Mirror API, which allows for online, web services-based apps that push simple content to the headset. This enables current apps like the New York Times. But, the Mirror API is quite limited, allowing only online apps and not providing any direct access to the Glass hardware. That’s changing, though, with Google announcing the Glass Developer Kit, or GDK. This will allow for Android apps that run directly on the Glass hardware, providing much greater functionality and offline access. When is it coming? “Sometime in the future” is the best we’re able to get.
HTC is getting into the Developer Edition trend — a compromise necessary since CEO Peter Chou’s plan to stop locking bootloaders entirely didn’t stick — as it’s announced tonight that a variant of its new One that will be available with both SIM and bootloader unlocked. Due to arrive in the US at the same time as the standard carrier versions, it will keep the same powerful specs and slick design we loved in our review, but without the restrictions. One thing it’s missing? AWS HSPA/WCDMA access, which should limit its opportunities on T-Mobile until it rolls out LTE service. The price is $ 649 up front and it will ship in “limited quantities,” so we’d figure that’s just one more thing to keep in mind before the next Galaxy S is announced on Thursday.

Fired? I would have given him a raise for ingenuity.
A software developer was recently fired after his employer discovered he had secretly outsourced his entire job to China for a mere 20% of what he was making. And, since brobro had so much free time on his hands, he also accepted a bunch of freelance gigs and outsourced all of those too. Clearly we have some sort of business genius on our hands.
…relying on a case study presented by the security team at Verizon, the gentleman in question was very interested in Reddit, eBay shopping, and watching cat videos during working hours.
So he allegedly outsourced his work to China. Yes, all of his work. He did nothing at all — workwise, that is, according to Verizon.
However, the Verizon folks say he also attempted to perform this liberating ploy simultaneously on other companies — presumably he was accepting freelance projects on the side.
What some might find amusing — or even dispiriting — is that his employers valued him highly, as the work was of an excellent standard.
Ahahahahahaha, they loved the quality of work he turned in. That’s beautiful. I bet they’re just embarrassed this dude figured out how to cut their costs by 80% and they didn’t think of it first. Screw firing him, I say make him president of the company. God willing he’ll outsource that too.
Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who was bragging about outsourcing this tip. Oh yeah — WELL GUESS WHO WROTE THIS ARTICLE?Related Posts:

Microsoft is bringing its BUILD event to the company’s campus in Redmond this year. After merging its previous WinHEC and PDC conferences into BUILD for a Windows 8 unveil last year, the software giant appears to be continuing to host a dedicated development event. Despite the event being on Microsoft’s campus, the company says it “will be unlike anything we’ve held on our corporate campus in a long time.”
Microsoft says its BUILD 2012 event will kick off on October 30th, a week after the Windows 8 launch, and last until November 2nd. The company will discuss Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, and Visual Studio 2012. Registration for the event will open on August 8th at 8AM PT.
There’s nothing easier to photoshop than a phone display, but a Nokiapoweruser reader claims to have RDA screenshots leaking five (count ‘em) different upcoming Nokia smartphones. The reputed models shown — without any other proof — are the Nokia 510, Nokia Belle 805 and Lumias 920, 950 and 1001. These are on top of another we already saw from the same type of source, the Nokia 910, giving us a Bizarro world view of Nokia’s entire possible WP8 lineup, before the company has even issued a peep. We’d love to ruminate about potential specs and pecking order, but since we’re talking about an entirely abstract slate of phones, go ahead and invent your own.

It’s been a few months since we last heard about the Nokia Lumia 910, but a new hint emerged this week, courtesy of the company’s own Remote Developer Access tool. As Nokiapoweruser reports, the long-rumored handset has been listed in Nokia’s RDA developer tool, as evidenced in the above screenshot. Unfortunately, there aren’t many details beyond that, though the apparent leak will likely revive some of the rumors that began circulating earlier this year, when the Lumia 910 appeared on a Dutch retailer’s website.
As listed, the device seemed largely identical to the Lumia 900, save for its lack of LTE, and, most notably, its 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. Nokia imaging chief Damian Dinning later refuted these claims, confirming that…
Question by zaigex: What alternatives are there to the Android Market as a game developer ? The android market takes 30 percent of revenue from each app sale (correct me if I’m wrong). I am developing a game for android and think having to give 30% of my sales to Google is too much. Are there any alternative markets with a lower taxation rate?
Answer by Jessica PYou should check out MobiHand at http://www.mobihand.com – I believe they have a better deal than the Marketplace and they are represented on almost every smart phone website online.
