This Week in the Life of DROID: 2/23/2013

droid life wall pink 960x854

Another week here at Droid Life has come and gone. This was one of the more interesting, to say the least, as we finally got our hands all over the new HTC One. We also filmed episode 16 of the DL show – a must watch – and saw a number of announcements come by way of Google. I/O registration can now go on your calendar, the Chromebook Pixel and its giant price tag can be had, and Glass will arrive some time this year for  you, the consumer at a price less than $1500. Other than those big timers, we had a bunch of DashClock extensions, the return of Custom ROM Friday, a new Q&A session, and so much more.

If you missed any of the actions, we’ve recapped the best of the best for you below:

Enjoy yourselves this weekend. Drive sober.

    Defult or not it still gives the site a professional look imo

  • CapnShiner

    I like the new image for This Week in the life of Droid. Even if it using default Photoshop effects, as pointed out by zurginator, it’s still an improvement over the old image.

  • OIC

    Droid Life – A Droid Community Blog that barely discuses “Droid” the brand, because it’s a shell of what it use to be.

    • CapnShiner

      Sad truth

  • Trevor

    I like the picture!

    • NorCalGuy

      ya it was time for an upgrade

    • zurginator

      Default PS grass brush? Check.
      Default PS lens flare? Check.

      …It pains me to look on this as a designer lol.

      • Trevor

        Haha, well to the average photography-ignorant human being, it looks pretty nice 🙂

        • zurginator

          Fair enough haha.

          • Someone made this a long time ago as an HTC splash screen so I just cropped it a bit and used it here. Definitely from the archives.

          • zurginator

            Ah. That would explain the massive changes in quality from week to week. (I mean no disrespect, everyone starts somewhere)

      • CapnShiner

        Then why don’t you upload a better one, since you are such an expert designer?

        • zurginator

          If you’re good at something, never do it for free.

          Besides, they really don’t need my help, as they have done some good work in the past. For example: http://www.droid-life.com/2012/11/16/this-week-in-the-life-of-droid-11162012/

          With some basic tweaks that one would be a very solid work.

          I mean heck, look at their logo! While that might have been sourced to a pro, it could have been done in-house as well. And it’s gawgeous.
