From the Editor's Desk: Photo Sphere and single sign-on

That’s a Photo Sphere I took at Pensacola Beach yesterday afternoon on the Samsung Galaxy S5 using the Google camera app that’s available in Google Play. Why use Google’s camera and not Samsung’s? For the simple reason we pointed out weeks ago — Samsung’s app doesn’t have it built in, so you have to download it separately. From Samsung’s app store. And I have no idea what my Samsung username or password is.

Video: Watch this incredible time lapse of the northern lights

Northern Lights Time Lapse Video

Photographer Alexis Coram took a trip to Alaska earlier this year and ended up capturing one of the most impressive videos of the northern lights that we’ve seen. The northern lights occur when charged particles of the sun enter Earth’s atmosphere and can usually only be seen from the higher latitudes, which is why most of us never get to see them up close and in person. However, Coram’s video is so incredible that it might be the next-best thing.

Facebook letting users vote on whether to keep their voting privileges for website changes

Facebook User Voting

Don’t worry, Facebook (FB) users: The company may take away your power to vote down proposed changes to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Data Use Policy, but it will only be because you told them it was OK. The Next Web reports that Facebook has caved to user anger at proposed changes to its site governance documents that would, among other things, take away users’ ability to vote on future document changes. Or as The Next Web puts it, “you’re effectively voting on whether to keep voting.” The voting process will be open for the next seven days. At the time of this writing, Facebook users are choosing to strike down the website’s proposed changes by a count of around 3,600 to 600.

Microsoft updates Android Xbox SmartGlass app for 7-inch tablets

Xbox SmartGlass Android App

While Nintendo (NTDOY) has chosen to create second-screen experiences with the new Wii U GamePad, Microsoft’s (MSFT) strategy for the Xbox 360 involves bringing your own devices (BYOD) with the Xbox SmartGlass app for Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. One of the more frustrating things initially about the Xbox SmartGlass app was that it wasn’t natively compatible with 7-inch Android tablets such as Google’s (GOOG) excellent Nexus 7, but Microsoft’s gone ahead and updated the app to take advantage of 7-inch Android tablets while squashing a batch of bugs at the same time. While still in its infancy, Xbox SmartGlass is a glimpse at the future of smartphones and tablet and how they connect to the TV

Google apps package updated today, just in time for the new AOSP ROMs

AOSP

The folks who do this sort of thing have updated the Google Apps package today, handing you a shiny new flashable to go with that 4.2.1 AOSP ROM you’re about to download.

Technically a grey area, Google doesn’t release their closed source applications for redistribution. Instead, they get sucked out of a phone running the current version, and blood, sweat, and scripts are used to create a package that gives you all the Googley services you would expect from an Android phone.

Android Central

Verizon’s HTC Droid DNA may have already been released (and reviewed), but mystery still surrounds the possibility of an international version of the phone. Earlier leaks have referred to it as the “DLX” or “Deluxe,” though it’s not clear whether this is the marketing name for the device or merely a codename.

Bing and Windows 8 are helping Microsoft’s brand image

Windows 8 Bing

Don’t look now but Microsoft (MSFT), the company that cornered the market with word processing and spreadsheets, has finally become cool. According to research from YouGov, the software giant’s Bing search engine and new Windows products are making a big impression on consumers as the market research firm found that consumer perception of both Windows and Bing are at a two-year high. In fact, since right around the time when Microsoft began its massive Windows 8 and Bing advertising campaigns in mid-October, the company’s perception has risen from 17 points to 25 on YouGov’s BrandIndex Buzz scale. The brand’s perception levels were even higher among tablet owners, increasing from 23 to 33 in the same period, while Bing managed to move up 6 points for a perception rating of 16.
