Macro Lens for your Nexus One

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

The Nexus One might not take the kind of macro photos that your DSLR is capable of, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still take good macro shots with a little bit of DIY elbow grease. Check out this handy macro lens attachment for the Nexus One.

The lens comes from a pair of mini binoculars, and is fastened to a mounting bracket using epoxy putty. You’ll notice the 3.5mm male plug, which holds the lens securely in place and also keeps it removable.

Nexus One/Arduino SmallSat blasted 28k feet into air on rocket

Posted in DIY by Shane McGlaun on July 29th, 2010

When I was a kid, I used to build those Estes rocket kits that you could shoot into the air a few hundred feet. I always seemed to get the tail fins crooked and the things would fly all sideways and stuff.

A couple geeks have taken rocketry to the next level and put a SmallSat made up of an Nexus One smartphone and Arduino onto the back of a big rocket dubbed intimidator-5 and blasted the thing into the sky. The project was followed by Make for its DIY Space issue.

Google stops direct sales of Nexus One

Posted in Google by Shane McGlaun on May 17th, 2010

Google started selling its Nexus One handset directly to customers back in January. The handset didn’t exactly sell like hot cakes or the iPhone. The reason was that many users simply wanted to get hands on the device before buying it.

ITProPortal has announced that Google has officially stopped selling the Nexus One via its website direct to customers. The publication reports that Google will instead focus on selling the device through retailers.

Sirius XM app for Android coming soon

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

iPhone and iPod touch users have had a Sirius XM app for about a year now, and Android users will soon be able to get in on it as well. Right now there’s still no launch date, but the app is “coming soon,”.

Apparently it will be pretty identical to the iPhone OS version, with support for streaming over WiFi and 3G. But it seems like Sirius XM is saying that the app will only be available for the Droid and Nexus One, which is strange.

Apple Targets Nexus One, Maybe Google in Lawsuit

Posted in Legal,patents by Darrin Olson on March 3rd, 2010

Apple files lawsuit with HTC over Android based mobile devices.On Tuesday Apple filed complaints with both the U.S. International Trade Commission and a federal court in Delaware seeking to stop the import, sales and use of some phones made by Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. The complaint suggests that HTC has infringed on patents owned by Apple with a number of their mobile handsets, all which rely on Google’s Android operating system.

The mobile devices in question include the Pro Touch, TouchPro 2, Touch Diamond, myTouch 3G, Tilt II, Pure, Imago, T-Mobile G1, Hero, Droid Eris, HD2 and of course Google’s own Nexus One which was also made by HTC. As many as 10 of the 20 accused violations involve the Nexus One, which brings up some speculation. Since Apple is targeting Android-based mobile devices with HTC, they could be gearing up to go after Google directly with the Android operating system. Not all of the patent infringement complaints by Apple involve the Android OS, however.
