Hands on review: Sony Android TV
Android on the big screen is coming of age with Sony's latest Smart TVs. Running Android on a television or set-top box is one of those ideas which looks great on paper but generally fails to live up to expectations. Sony's latest effort, available on most of its 2015 range including the 75-inch Ultra HD model I looked at Monday, offers the slickest Android television implementation I've seen yet, but it comes at a price.

KILSWITCH Android tablet delivers airstrikes in four minutes
For years, American Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) have been forced to call in their Close Air Support (aka airstrike) requests using radios and paper maps, then wait half an hour or more for help to arrive. During that waiting period, the JTAC would also have to carefully coordinate with and monitor the positions of inbound aircrews in order to avoid friendly fire. However, doing so is far easier said than done when you're in the middle of a firefight. But thanks to a new ruggedized Android tablet from DARPA, our frontline soldiers can call in the air cavalry in less time than it takes to order a pizza. Not have a pizza delivered, order one. [?]

In 2005, on Google’s sprawling, college-like campus, the most secret and ambitious of many, many teams was Google’s own smartphone effort—the Android project.

Android in 2014: What to expect | Android Atlas - CNET Reviews
2013 was a busy year for the Android ecosystem: phones got bigger, faster, and more robust. Tablets grew numerous, and Android moved into electronics like smartwatches and a gaming device. Looking ahead to next year we should expect the same trends to continue, but on a slightly different trajectory. Android will likely have a decent showing at CES with announcements from a handful of hardware makers. Jumping ahead to February and Mobile World Congress, things should start to heat up for the next generation of Android. While this may sound like business as usual, 2014 will undoubtedly bring a crop of smartphones unlike any before. [?]
