When it went on sale in late September, Levi's Commuter Trucker Jacket was the first piece of clothing to integrate Google's Project Jacquard touch-gesture functionality. At $350 a pop, it's not a surprise that the Jacquard by Google app (which is used to customize and control the jacket) shows just 100-500 installs. That means a few hundred people will be delighted to learn that the app just got its first major update, which lets wearers of the Jacquard-woven jacket use gestures that enable new light modes for the tag on the sleeve, as well as find their phone.

With Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be prudent to put together a list of apps, games, live wallpapers, and watch faces that are appropriately holiday-themed. There are a total of 15 Play Store listings within this list, and each one has been hand-picked. So if you are looking for some great Android-specific apps with a Christmas theme, you have clicked on the right listicle.

Google Santa Tracker

Okay, so Google Santa Tracker is pretty much a prerequisite at this point for any Christmas-themed list for Android.

Top 10 New Android Games This Week: The Uncertain, Undersea

Project Tango, later just called Tango, was an augmented reality system designed for mobile use. You could buy tablets and even phones supporting the technology, though the tech never really went mainstream (it was used by researchers).

I use the word “was” because Google has announced that support for Tango is being shut down on March 1 of 2018. This is due to Google ARCore replacing it as Google’s new AR system. Hopefully this one will actually take off.

Amazon will begin selling Chromecast and Apple TV again

2017-12-15T03:40:26.393+07:00

Remember a couple of years ago when Amazon stopped selling the Chromecast and Apple TV because neither device offered Amazon Prime Video? Well they’re now returning to the online retailer.

Amazon is once again selling the Chromecast and Apple TV. The company confirmed to CNET today that it will once again offer Google and Apple’s streaming devices, and sure enough, those product pages are now live:

All of the devices are listed as “Currently unavailable” at the time of this post, and Amazon hasn’t said exactly when they’ll become available again. Considering that Amazon has confirmed that the devices will be on sale again and that the product pages are now live, though, the Chromecast and Apple TV should be available soon.

There have been no shortage of ways to buy the Chromecast and Apple TV ever since Amazon pulled them from its digital shelves, including retailers like Best Buy and from Google and Apple themselves. Still, the return of these devices to Amazon is good news, as some folks prefer to buy from Amazon, like if they’re a Prime member. It’s also a smart move from Amazon since consumers now have the option of buying from Amazon rather than one of its competitors.
