Maximum GB in your rackmount storage.
*Greg S. brings this up when he said he was looking into building servers for this.
*I say a company in our very city builds such high-density devices. Here's the SMS I sent to my step-brother, quote(8/17/13 5:31 PM 2 months ago
Me: http://PSSCLabs.com , the venue of yesterday's http://meetup.com/OC-HUG/events... (where I was at) and a attendee in this group, seem like they might be a better supplier for ur co than ur present supplier (Dell?) as super local(Lake Forest), possibly higher density(~50TB in 1U,&just 250W),&very approachable,&before delivery they 2week test ur order using ur target software config. Thoughts? 4:07 PM). Hope this helps, Greg. :-)

*Note the date of this event currently expected to change to the 2013.10.21Mon: see the When thread http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve... for latest Date news.

Read & write your Android filesystem wirelessly (via LAN) w/o a cable, and w/o loss of mod times.
*My phone's USB has permanently failed so this is the only way to get off my LivoRecorder files without loss of mod date: solving "getting out of Livo alive" http://1.JotHere.com/4194#MSW8B... which the maker never got back to me.
*Used (and demonstrated just now here) WebDav Server Ultimate (free) which I list on my comparsion table of Android file Managers http://1.JotHere.com/MSRUNV

UNU TABLET http://TheUnu.com (with Android 4.2 and 7in diagonal 1080p touch screen w/3D decoder)
*Made by a company I've never heard of before, apparently http://Sunflex-Europe.com of Germany, but nonetheless:
*Getting a lot of press, even at https://news.google.com/news/rtc... where I just heard about it today, including it's being compared with Google/Asus Nexus7 (2013) and the other top tablet models
*Notable as it appears high-performance and is a combination "Tablet+Gaming Console+Smart TV"+serves a set-top box (for big monitor display) including optional docking station + wireless air-mouse & keyboard
*Lacks LTE(cellular data support)
*Most seriously it seems to lack GPS (including I found nothing, not even fixes, via http://google.com/search?q=Unu+... ), a killer for me as a primary tablet
*I'm keeping specs on it in my tablet table http://1.JotHere.com/MU7PLS item MUIO5J .

Android software/utility that copies/moves files to Google Drive else ftp also preserves mod times -know of any?
*I've got 100s of Livo Recorder files and it random #s them (unlike camera) so the only way to get the recording date is the mod time. So I need a utility to preserve mod times copying to say Google Drive else ftp. Know of any?
*Actually the USB storage manager (mounted by Windows Explorer) does preserve mod times but unfortunately the USB connector on this phone is failed (only reliably connects for a few seconds if that; so i keep the phone charged by an external battery charger)
* http://android.stackexchange.co... says scp will do that but that seems a bit tricky (tho if in a pinch).
*High-rated AntTek Explorer https://play.google.com/store/ap... I tired but doesn't do it even mod dates within zip files --rests the mod time to present (sloppy IMHO).

"..[Android ]Developers[:] ..DevDistro is a special Linux Mint 13 which can be run as a VM on Windows, Linux, etc. It has pre-installed Android Developer Tools AND the tools to create a custom Android ROM. So far I have installed it under Windows 7 using VMWare and under Linux using VirtualBox. See creators postings: http://broodplank.net/?p=749 and http://forum.xda-developers.com... "
*originally posted by Martin at http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve... but that's the "WHEN" thread so it instead belongs here, and since also Meetup can't move comments (so it's important to post them right) so I'm manually reposting here.
*Bill might be interested in this as he crafted a custom ROM for his Android game console. Bill, what's the URL for that?

RoboRoach -yes,believe it or not, a big live cockroach controlled from your smartphone, via Bluetooth, as featured today on http://news.Google.com at http://mashable.com/2013/06/11/...
*teaches neuroscience especially to kids in a clearly fun though easily sadistic way.
*video at that URL gives clear instructions on how to perform the necessary surgery, after ice-water anesthesia, to convert your roach into cyborg.
*It intentionally escape cruelty-to-animal laws by working on insects. Still, is it humane? Well I managed to skip dissections in biology; at best it's questionable.
*At any rate, an Android version will be necessary, as we can't have the groupie iOS fans controlling the RoboRoaches out there ;-) We need Android roaches for battle! ;-) So pre-order your kit and/or support the Kickstarter project at http://backyardbrains.com/produ... (roaches not included; but yes, available, too, & now, for $24 per box o 12 http://backyardbrains.com/produ... )
