Google Now is currently the smartest and most responsive voice activated software on the planet, but that doesn't mean it is flawless yet. It still has some learning to do before it can evolve to a higher level of intelligence and take over the world. In the mean-time, on the rare occasions when it doesn't quite get things right, the Google engineers gave it a new feature which gives it another chance to do better.
Now, Google Now lets you say "No, I said... XXXXX" to try again. You simply need to restate what you were trying to do or search for after saying that "No, I said... " line. This word correction feature isn't the only new trick taught to this not-so-old dog. Google Now also lets you...

At the Google I/O 2014 conference this week, Google's head of engineering at Android and the Nexus program, Dave Burke, clarified that Nexus was here to stay and would not be replaced by Android Silver. For a few weeks before the event we heard several rumors suggesting that Android Silver would kill off the Nexus product line, but it seems those rumors were unfounded (at least for now). Burke had this to say,
"People just get excited by concepts and forget why we do things. We are still invested in Nexus."
He also elaborated on the processes involved in developing with the open nature of Android. He shared that one team works on Android, while the other works in tandem on the Nexus hardware, but they ultimately go hand in hand,
"Android Silver is not something that we are commenting on right now. People have been commenting about Nexus because there is something else and they think that means the end of Nexus. That is the totally wrong conclusion to make.
Whew! It's good to know Google is still... [Read More]
When we are working, there are sort of two outputs. We’re building a Nexus device and we’re building the open source code. There is no way you can build the open source code without the phone or tablet or whatever you are building. You have to live and breathe the code you are developing.
You can’t build a platform in the abstract, you have to build a device (or devices). So, I don’t think can can or will ever go away. And then, I think Nexus is also interesting in that it is a way of us explaining how we think Android should run. It is a statement, almost a statement of purity in some respects. I don’t see why we would ever turn away from that, it wouldn’t make sense.

Just last night a new version of Android started rolling out for Sprint users of the Nexus 5. Strangely, a previously unmentioned version of Android, version 4.4.4 just pushed out OTA to the Sprint Nexus 5 (and possibly other brands of Nexus products). We haven't seen hide nor hair of this update before it actually started hitting phones, so we don't even know what it fixes. After doing some digging, we found the details on the ParanoidAndroid Google+ page. Here's a quote,

4.4 FINAL / ANDROID 4.4.4
This week at PA headquarters we worked very hard to bring you the most stable experience ever since 4+.
Too many hot fixes have been merged today, along with some new goodies.
What does 4.4 Final mean?
Current featured branch reached final stable state. Doesn’t mean at all that development has stopped
You can just flash this, and feel safe.
Android 4.4.4 upstream tag has been merged into our source.
The Volume Panel has been re-designed as you can see in the image below to be inline with hover, be less intrusive and more beautiful.
Hover UI/UX has been reworked a bit for tablet users: Hover will not take the whole screen width, but it will respect notification size. Also status bar isn’t hidden when hover shows and you can pull it down when you want, as you touch status bar Hover will be dismissed to not overload on top of status bar expanded state. Another awesome thing is that un-dismissible notifications cases like screenshots etc have been solved (yea is true). Last but not least the marriage with ticker view has been reworked, when hover is enabled and you receive notifications from foreground app they will not be shown in Hover but in ticker.
Fixed a couple of issues regarding repositioning. Also, Pie now follows same behavior of navigation bar on phone when in landscape, sticks at right. Last but not least Pie is now themeable by external xml resources, by Theme
