Schlissel was sentenced for 12 years in prison for the 2005 attack after his conviction on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault. However, in 2007, following an appeal, the Supreme Court mitigated his sentence to 10 years.

Wtf people!
Suspect was convicted of attempted murder after stabbing three during 2005 Gay Pride Parade; he was recently released from prison.

Rare politics post from me, but Scalia's dissent to the Gay Marriage ruling is hilarious - it reads as a cross between a tantrum and a troll.

The other dissenters did a much better job of defining that they thought this was a decision best left to a vote, not a judicial 'overreach'. I don't agree with that (sometimes you need to put the hammer down when the kids are fighting), but I can respect that view.

Congrats to all sides, this day, no matter which side you picked, is now an historic one that people will be learning about for years.

'Why did they call it Cyanogen OS? Must be a slight against Android as an OS. How pretentious of the CM devs. Those thieves'

Sigh. The things people want/choose to read into are kind of amazing.

Its called Cyanogen OS because users were confused and conflating it with CyanogenMod (when it used the 11S designation); hell, I still see blogs doing the same. This is particularly bad when users are looking for searches on the interwebs - getting instructions to root their unrelated device that the community supports is not ideal. CyanogenMod and Cyanogen OS will have their own release cycles - I've already seen the impact first hand our community M snapshots being mistaken for Cyanogen OS (CM11S at the time) releases.

It's an OS because Android is an OS. And yes, so is Touchwiz, and Sense and any other 'skin' - all Operating Systems of the Android variety - they just drop that designation as their product differs from the company name. That's the added issue of 'Cyanogen' being the company name (and Steve's handle), so going with that alone wouldn't have worked. Could it have been something different altogether? Probably, but then you lose mind share, brand identity and just confuse people.

In the end the 'OS' piece allows for an easy filter to both distinguish that you are explicitly discussing the retail variant (with whatever criticism you may have of its contents), makes finding content relevant to this version easier, and (my favorite) isolates the community project (CyanogenMod) from issues with corporate-only items and decisions.

Under the hood, its still Android, and its still CyanogenMod (go look at the community easter eggs).

Just because Amazon went to the extreme with FireOS, doesn't mean 'OS' is taboo. Its the literal technical term that happens to serve clear objective and subjective values in this case.

+Kevin Carter from Wikipedia "Examples of popular modern operating systems include Android, BSD, iOS, Linux, OS X, QNX, Microsoft Windows,[3] Windows Phone, and IBM z/OS. The first six of these examples share roots in UNIX." That said I guess Cyanogen uses source code of Android OS, slightly modified or tweaked, with new settings, options, icons, maybe new apps or some really cool features but main properties of OS logic are same as in Android. That is why in my opinion Cyanogen can be no more than flavor, skin, mod.. The wish of +Abhisek Devkota a.a. would like to differentiate it from CM, doesn't make it OS.

I'm working on a new Android theming library named Prism. There's still a little bit of work to do but I'm aiming to release it in mid-July. The GIF shows it in action being driven by a ViewPager - the only thing not being coloured by Prism is the text within each page of the ViewPager. It integrates fully with the new design support library and supports custom Views as well.

I'll be giving a sneak peek of Prism at the Londroid meetup this coming Tuesday http://www.meetup.com/android/events/223098440

Doesn't look like the government side of the debate is going to change its position any time soon.

"Because regardless of the courts finding us guilty of violating the US Constitution in spying on all our citizens (revealed to the public only by virtue of whistle blower Snowden, who's now in hiding), we can be trusted, isn't it obvious?"
