Android’s ‘instant’ apps are now leaner and faster

Right now, Google’s instant Android apps don’t quite live up to their billing. Google has to load support for every possible device, which can slow down access to the app and chew up valuable space. That shouldn’t be an issue going forward. Google has updated its instant app programming kit to let developers give you configurations that only target specific device profiles based on the display, chip architecture and language. If you’re using a low-resolution screen, an ARM processor and Chinese, for example, you won’t get the data needed for a sharper display, Intel chips and other languages. Google reckons that this saves an average of 10 percent space, which should translate to faster-loading apps.

Also, you stand a better chance of keeping that instant app data if you decide to install the full thing. Where you previously needed Android Oreo to preserve that content, it now applies to phones running Lollipop or newer.

Developers will need to roll the new features into their Android titles, so don’t expect to see improvements right away. With that said, the gap between instant and fully installed apps should be noticeably narrower, especially if you’re using one of the vast majority of Android devices that doesn’t yet have Oreo.

Elon Musk says Tesla's new Semi trucks are BAMFs.

Yes, for those of you at home, that's the widely known acronym for "Bad Ass Mother F***er."

Musk playfully threw out the acronym as a "scientific term" Tesla's development team used as they designed the new big rigs. The name sounds ridiculous — but the specs, if they wind up being legit, are actually pretty impressive.

Musk claims the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds, well faster than traditional diesel trucks. That's the cab by itself or with an empty trailer loaded on. Read more...
