Stress Test Google Latitude: Android User’s Help Needed
XDA moderator Stericson, known for being the creator of MetaMorph and NinjaMorph, is stress testing Google Latitude on Android. Goal of this stress test is to see how it performs under heavy load. The way he tests it is by getting as much ‘Latitude friends’ as possible. The current number of friends is 840 and Google Mobile seems to be showing some interest in the test.
However, 840 Latitude friends is not enough yet. He needs a lot more to push the limits as far as possible. That’s why he asked us to place a notice on the portal, asking Android users to be a part of this.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
