After a brief hiatus, we’re back with a very special episode of the TechCrunch Droidcast. Recorded with both myself and Chris Velazco in the flesh in our studio offices in sunny, warm (actually freezing, dark) Toronto, Canada this week is a pleasantly brief sojourn into the world of Android.
We deal mostly with the new Google Play edition devices launched this week, which include a stripped down, virtually stock OS running on Sony’s Experia Ultra Z (though it loses the ‘Xperia’ for some reason) and the LG G Pad 8.3-inch Android tablet. Google’s going a little wild with those ‘blessed’ devices, which have the benefit of having all manufacturer bloatware stripped out, to show just how dumb OEM skins actually are.
We invite you to enjoy weekly Android podcasts every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. Eastern and 2:30 p.m. Pacific (generally speaking), in addition to our weekly Gadgets podcast at 3 p.m. Eastern and noon Pacific on Fridays. Subscribe to the TechCrunch Droidcast in iTunes, too, if that’s your fancy.

Having spent the last year using the PlayStation 4 at trade shows and press events, we’ve got a fairly good idea of how games look and play on the rhombus-shaped game box. The questions that remain largely revolve around living with the device: can it quickly switch between apps and games? how …
This is a short video created by Youtube user adamanimates of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes dancing around in the woods. It’s good. Plus I liked the song. The whole thing really brightened my day. And I needed that because my day has been pretty dark so far. I don’t want to go into details, but I’m bleeding and if it doesn’t stop soon I might even have to go to the hospital. “WHERE’S THE REST OF YOUR ARM?!” Like I said, pretty dark so far. Hit the jump for the video. You’ll like it, I promise.
After several months of testing within the industry, Nielsen is finally ready to reveal its efforts to bake mobile viewing habits into its TV ratings system. In a wider roll-out of what the company already monitors, it’ll launch an SDK for participating broadcasters in mid-November that will …
I don’t generally get associateded with politics because it’s not my task to depress the spunk from people, but I cannot assist however feel sorry for this little monkey. Obviously he escaped from the National Zoo and wishes to return, however, due to the government shutdown, he cannot return in. “You do recognize that’s a kid, right?” You sure? However seriously, are the animals at the zoo at least getting fed? Due to the fact that I suggest every day the government can’t settle on a budget we draw a Congress member’s name from a hat and throw them into the lion pit. Plus live broadcast everything like The Appetite Games. “Wow, GW, you ought to be president.” I know I need to be. You know how I know? Since I absolutely, 100 % don’t desire to be. Anyone who really wants to be associateded with politics shouldn’t be permitted. If you’re not actively trying to resign everyday, you’re obviously not a person of individuals. Thanks to Lizzy, who informed me she simply wishes to go back to work and do her job. Congress, not a lot.
Nokia introduced its Glance screen feature with the Lumia 925, allowing users to double-tap to wake the device, and it has been gradually improving it ever since. While Glance also typically shows a clock when the phone display is turned off, Nokia has previously added a “Peek” feature to let you wave to activate the time. Today the company is releasing a beta of what it calls Glance Background, allowing some Lumia owners to set a background image on the Glance screen.
Nokia Sleeping Screen was a distinct feature of Nokia’s Symbian devices, and the Glance Background beta mimics most of the old options. You can select up to four images to rotate as the Glance background and choose from preloaded images or your own. There’s even a basic…
This is the Pimp2-D2 action figure that will be for sale by Manly Art at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say HOLY SPUNK THIS IS REALLY HIGH UP. Did I trick you? I’m actually at my desk. I’m going to go out on a limb below and say this is an entirely unlicensed item because Disney usually frowns on prostitutes and pimp culture. But they will not think twice to exterminate a momma deer in the first five minutes of a film. That’s a double standard if you ask me. “Do you even know what a double requirement is?” What is this, a principles course? Can’t you simply let a guy make believe to be clever for when in his life? You should simply be grateful I’m not speaking about penises today like I want I was. Thanks to becca, who would put that little walking stick from his hand and beat him with it till he accepted stop making use of ladies or short-circuited and blew up, whichever comes first.

what does the future have in store for this light source ?
Answer by Bob
Very cheap, in bulk can buy 100+ for 1 GBP for indicator types, but Luxtron 5 watt are £25 GBP.
In it’s original form as an indicator it has been around since the early 1970′s but the later blue, white, laser, and ultra violet types are fairly recent additions.
Indicators, illuminators for your mobile phone and LCD TV, Luxtron produce a 5 watt white LED for general illumination intended to replace fluorescent lamps.
Due to the high lumen/watt output (efficacy) it is spelt correctly, the future is bright, the future is LED for general illumination and automotive lighting.
