Android’s next skill may be tracking Bluetooth device battery life

By | July 31st, 2017|Categories: TechRadar|

As wireless headphones become less a novelty and more the  status quo, tracking the battery life of your Bluetooth accessories is crucial for avoiding running out of juice at an inopportune moment.

As such, it appears the Android Open Source Project is working on a way for the Google-powered platform to track the battery life of Bluetooth devices, according to a report from XDA Developers.

THE DIVES
Everybody’s Talkin’
WHY!

Led by frontman and guitarist Evan Stanley (yep, that’s Paul from KISS’ kid) The Dives’ debut EP kicks off with the energetic pop-rock blast of “Make It Like The Movies”. The ‘scene’ is set with this track that recalls the best of OK Go: a high-gloss, modern production yet with speaker-rattling, Hives-like guitars clanging front and centre for the duration.

The remainder of the EP doesn’t disappoint, showcasing a band that loves timeless guitar pop and have absolutely no love for messing around; every second here counts, with special attention paid to the rich harmonies, quirky hooks and a rhythm section that punches with laser-like precision.… Read the full article
