Halloween Witch: Celebrated with a Google Doodle

Halloween has been celebrated with a Google Doodle which lets you become a witch and create your own potion in her cauldron.

Today's interactive Google Doodle is Halloween themed and features a green-faced witch a long, pointed noise and straggly hair.

Today's interactive Google Doodle is Halloween themed and features a green-faced witch a long, pointed noise and straggly hair.

Google users are initially invited to click on the witch's spell book, before they are taken to a cave-like space where the witch is busy stirring her bubbling potion.

You are then able to choose between a number of ingredients – including a skull, apple, bone and a blue-coloured substance in a bottle – and throw them in the cauldron.

Throwing the items in creates a puff of smoke in which the witch disappears from view.

Google users are then taken to one of several mini games, including one in which you have to guess where a mummy is hiding among three coffins.

The name Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Even, or All Hallows' Evening. All Hallows is an old term for All Saints' Day.

Halloween seems to have grown around the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain, marking the end of the light half of the year and the beginning of the dark half.

Samhain was in part a sort of harvest festival, when the last crops were gathered in for the winter, and livestock killed and stored.

But the pagan Celts also believed it was a time when the walls between our world and the next became thin and porous, allowing spirits to pass through.

The practice of donning a scary costume may have stemmed from this belief, and the idea that dressing up as a ghost may have scared away other ghosts.

The classic Hallowe'en jack-o'-lantern, a carved grinning pumpkin, seems to have come from an old Irish legend of a man called Stingy Jack, a miserly farmer who played a trick on the devil and as punishment was cursed to wander the earth, lighting his way with a candle inside a hollowed-out turnip.

When the tradition moved to America pumpkins were used instead of turnips, as they were both more available and easier to carve.

Amazon WMV Nexus 10: Play Amazon Instant Video on Nexus 10

If you have problems about playing Amazon Instant Video on your Nexus 10  tablet, you can check out the tutorial to Remove DRM from Amazon WMV and record Amazon Instant Video(.wmv) to your Nexus 10.
Have you purchased lots of WMV videos from Amazon store and want to put these Amazon Instant videos to your Google Nexus 10? As is known to everybody, the WMV videos purchased from Amazon store, including music, videos, movies, and TV show etc. are usually format type unsupported by the Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android/Windows 8 tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire (HD). So if you would like to transfer Amazon WMV videos to Nexus 10 for playback, you have to remove DRM from Amazon Instant Video and convert/record it to Nexus 10 compatible formats.

Refer to Google Nexus 10 supported codecs
  • Video codec: H.263, MPEG-4 SP, H.264 AVC
  • Audio codec: AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1 (AAC+), HE-AACv2 (enhanced AAC+), AMR-NB, AMR-WB 9, MP3, MIDI SMF, Ogg Vorbis, WAV
To do it, Pavtube ChewTune is a great help. It is an all-in-one DRM Removal Program to help you convert/record Amazon WMV videos effortlessly to Nexus 10 supported MP4 format in high quality. After that, you can play your Amazon Instant Video(WMV) on Nexus 10 very smoothly. Now, let's start to convert and transfer Amazon WMV to Nexus 7. (Note: For the common WMV videos, Pavtube Video Converter is recommended to you).

The screen is undoubtedly one of the standout features of the Nexus 10. As the name suggests, it measures 10 inches on the diagonal but more importantly packs an astounding 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution. We were previously blown away by the pin-sharp display of the new iPad with its 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution. The Nexus 10 casually swans past that, to offer an even more refined viewing experience.

Now you want to put some Amazon Instant videos to the Google Nexus 10? Wait a minute. The Amazon Instant videos, though mainly .wmv format, are not supported by Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire. To get the Amazon WMV playable on Nexus 10, you'll have to remove the DRM protection first. 

The tools you need to transfer Amazon WMV movies to Nexus 10: A powerful Amazon WMV video DRM remove tool and a WMV to Nexus 10 converter. Pavtube ChewTune combines these two tools together and makes it possible to watch purchased DRM videos on Nexus 10.

To convert videos to Google Nexus 10 with best settings, you can download profile patch for the software(Windows only).

Remove DRM protection off Amazon video and convert WMV to the Nexus 10 for playing

Step 1: Load Amazon WMV video files to Pavtube ChewTune.

Install and launch the Pavtube WMV to Nexus 10 Converter, then click the add button to load the WMV video files to the program.

Step 2: Choose H.264 codec format for the Google Nexus 10 playing.

Click "Format" and select an output format for the Google Nexus 10. Here I choose "Android -> Google Nexus 10 H.264 Video (*.mp4)".

Step 3: Optimize the settings for Amazon video to Nexus 10 conversion.

If you find the default settings may not satisfy your need, can click the "Settings" button to change the settings by yourself.

For Mac users, it is necessary to custom profile settings, since there's no profile patch for OS X. Similarly, you can choose Nexus 7 format and custom the profile for Nexus 10 by clicking "Settings" and set the recommended settings as it shows below:

  • Codec: h264
  • Size (pix): 1920*1080
  • Bitrate (kbps): 2000
  • Frame Rate (fps): original

  • Codec: aac
  • Sample Rate (hz): 44100
  • Bitrate (bps): 128000
  • Channels: Stereo
Step 4: Convert Amazon video to Nexus 10 video format.

Having finished the settings? OK, just click the convert button and start to convert Amazon video to Google Nexus 10 format with ease.

When the conversion task is finished, you can click "Open" button to get the final output files for your Google Nexus 10 and transfer the converted videos to Google Nexus 10.

If you have music and videos to watch on the tablet, here's a guide for copying local videos to Google Nexus 10.

Transferring videos and music from PC to Nexus 10?

1. Use the USB cable that came with your 16 GB or 32 GB Nexus 10 to connect the tablet to your PC, and you'll receive a notification that the USB is connected.

2. Open the Notifications panel and touch USB connected. Then touch Turn on USB storage in the screen that opens to confirm that you want to transfer files. The Nexus 10 tablet is connected as USB storage, and the screen will indicate that USB storage is in use and you receive a notification. The Nexus 10 is mounted as a drive on your computer.

3. You can now copy videos from PC to the Google Nexus 10. During this time, you can't access the SD card from your Nexus 10 or share your tablet's data connection with your computer via USB.

4. When the videos are copied to the 16 GB/32 GB Nexus 10, you can disconnect your Nexus tablet from PC.

Like the Nexus 7, it does not include an SD card slot for additional storage, so you may need a Video Converter to compress very big file to smaller file size. (Learn more on Nexus 7 Column)

Tips: MKV, MOV, TS, MPG, Tivo, FLV, F4V and some AVI videos are not accepted formats and you have to convert them to Nexus 10 optimized H.264 .mp4 videos before downloading them to the device.

Google Updates Platform Distribution Numbers Gingerbread Down To 38.5%, Jelly Bean Up To 28.4%

As usual Google has updated monthly platform distribution numbers for Android in its developer dashboard. The numbers, based on devices accessing the Play Store over the last 14 days (ending May 1st), tell developers which versions of Android are most prevalent, and which are on the decline.

This month, as last month, we're seeing a decline in Gingerbread and a rise in Jelly Bean. Gingerbread has dropped from 39.8% to 38.5%, a 1.3% drop for those keeping tally at home. Jelly Bean, meanwhile, has seen a slightly more substantial shift, rising 3.4% from 25% to 28.4%.

Elsewhere, the ebb and flow of version numbers is more or less expected. clair and Donut are grasping for dear life, sitting still at 1.7% and 0.1% respectively, Froyo has dropped a mere 0.3%, and Honeycomb has dropped another 0.1%. Ice Cream Sandwich, likewise, is down 1.8% to 27.5%. To see the numbers (and other useful info) hit the link below.

Google Now could soon be making its way to your desktop

Those of you with an Android device running Ice Cream Sandwich who were green with envy at your Android 4.1 brothers and sisters and their full access to Google Now, don’t let it get you down. It seems you might soon be able to still get in on some Google Now action on your desktop (at least it’s something, right?).



Some underlying code found buried in a Chrome extension developed by Google revealed the search giant’s plans to release Now for the desktop, bringing back some of that iGoogle functionality we all loved. References to “get started with Google Now,”  “just the right information at just the right time,” “Google Now uses your Home location to show relevant information like weather, traffic conditions, and nearby places,” and “now_card.” all make an appearance in the code (pictured above).

No word on an expected rollout, but this kinda stuff sounds perfect for a Google I/O announcement next month. What do you guys think, could your Google homepage better serve you after its been infused with the power of Google Now?
