Those who already own Google Glass are more likely than most to embrace new technologies like Nest’s thermostat, so it only makes sense that an especially eager adopter would find a way to combine the two. That would be James Rundquist and his new Glass Nest app: Glass owners now just have to announce that they’re coming home (or heading out) to make their Nest units change the climate. More exacting homeowners can fine-tune the temperature, too. While the utility is both unofficial and quite limited at this stage, Rundquist has posted source code that lets anyone expand on the project. If you’re in the rare position of owning both gadgets, we’d suggest giving Glass Nest and its code at least a cursory look.

The FCC’s underground bunker, situated beneath Portals II, 445 12th Street SW, has recently been visited by a rising star of the tablet world. Toshiba’s AT10LE-a, the company’s Tegra 4-powered slate that’s reportedly running Android 4.2.1 has been dissected by those fine folks at the FCC. The unit is carrying WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC radios, and now that they’ve been passed safe for human consumption, we can only assume that an official announcement won’t be too far behind.

Despite being one of the hotter social networks, Pinterest hasn’t been on the cutting edge of sharing: members wanting to send their pins through official channels have had to use old-fashioned email. The service is catching up to the modern era in style, however, with a new option to send pins directly to friends through Pinterest’s mobile and web apps. While email is still hanging around, both ends now just have to be mutual followers on Facebook or Pinterest for the magic to happen. Sharers will also receive any adulation (or criticism) right away — comments, likes and repins on those items will appear as notifications. It will take weeks to fully deploy the direct sending feature, but it shouldn’t be long before everyone is on the same page.
Relations between those who build mobile apps and their customers are getting a leg up today with Google’s announcement that all developers will now be able to reply to user reviews in the Play store. The company made the announcement on the Android Developers blog, discussing best practices like identifying and prioritizing bugs based on user impact and getting ideas for new improvements and features. The ability to respond to user reviews first started rolling out nearly a year ago, but now appears to finally be complete, following a false start in January.

Yelp users have enjoyed advanced sorting for years, but as Foursquare grows beyond basic tips and incentivized check-ins, such search filters are making their way to that site, too. Today’s announcement details a few handy additions, enabling you to locate businesses by price range, available specials and hours of operation. If you’re willing to sign into the service, you’ll see a few more options pop up, letting you find both new haunts and places you’ve saved, along with your friends’ favorite locales. The Foursquare team promises to release more options in the future, and while these latest tools are only available on the company’s website today, they should be hitting your smartphone soon.

After just shy of two months in private beta, TestFlight’s now ready to welcome any devs wanting to upload apps and put them through their paces. As mentioned when it first appeared, the Android version (which bridges the app gap with an identical iOS iteration) includes app management, tracking and distribution as well as centralized feedback, keeping all those improvements in one easy-to-manage pile. Crash reporting is promised in the near future, alongside the release of its own SDK — early adopters will get to try that out as soon as next week.
In a market crowded by ocelots, cows and mountain lions, it’s nice to see an operating system that isn’t named after an animal. The trend bucking OS? Debian’s 7.0 update, Wheezy. Okay, it’s technically the name of a penguin from Toy Story, but we’ll give it a pass. The distro’s latest revision hit over the weekend, offering users an improved installer, new media codecs, UEFI support and a handful of tools to help users create their own XCP and OpenStack cloud severs. Perhaps even more significant is multiarch support, which allows the OS to install packages for both 32 and 64-bit machines simultaneously, improving support for legacy applications. The update includes a ton of software updates as well. Thinking of upgrading? You’ll find release notes and download information at the source link.
