The man, the myth, the legend well at least to us Android fans, Andy Rubin is no longer part of the Google team. According to Jessica Lessin, from The Information, he is leaving Google in favor of starting an incubator for hardware set-ups. No official reason for his leaving yet but sources close to him say it involved his team structure. Rubin left Android last March, and with the recent shakeup in the company with Larry Page taking a step back and Sundar Pichai becoming sort of a Google product king it seems there is a lot changing in Google world. We all owe great gratitude towards Andy Rubin for what he has brought us and while he is not with Google anymore he sure has left his impact.

After only three days of exposure, Amazon has had Primecast blocked from use. From what I understand it was restricted via Amazon’s backend. That means there was no legal action taken against the Primecast developers or threats of action. The developers have taken the app down of their own volition. Contrary to what was written […]
