You could have more than a 4-digit passcode before, you just needed to do a manual password composed of only numbers, and then it would present you with the keypad.

Can we have an Ashley cult? I'd join that cult. Let's make this a thing, please. Chop chop.

I got a little confused on the whole "sex is a social construct" idea. Not sure I entirely agree.

I was under the impression that (most) LGBT concepts can be divided into sex, sexuality, and gender. Sexuality being type of (direction, amount, lack of, etc.) attraction, sex being a biological concept, and gender having the subcategories of gender identity and expression.

Saying that sex is a social construct is entirely limiting! The spectrum of gender as a whole (thank you AP Psych:) biopsychosocial construct, but looking at the specifics, I'd still assert that sex is biological.

I still agree that one's sex is made of many characteristics, but those characteristics are the spectrum, not the social construct around it. It is normal for every human to have testosterone and estrogen, amounts vary amongst cis people too. Chromosomes can be XX, XY, or other. Genitals can be confusing as well. But just because it's a spectrum doesn't mean it isn't biological.

I guess what I'm saying is that, with my definition, gender = social construct, sex = biological construct.

Yes, this is coming from a cis white male, hope my opinion still counts. Let me know what you think, I'm open for discussion!

I have an issue.

Long story short my phone thinks the update is downloaded but it isn't (nothing in /cache) and I can't seem to get it to redownload it. Suggestions?

So how many of you use the share function in the clock app?

I was recording the timings for a set of songs and then I used the share button to email it. And it turns out Google has a set of quirky subjects for the messages it creates.

Here are some...

Anyone else have the bug where search results from Google Now show up slightly scrolled down, and you have to pull them down to see the top results? I'm running the M preview, but this happened with 5.1.x as well.

Same here on 5.1. I'd get annoyed because I thought a Knowledge Graph card didn't appear for a very obvious search until I scrolled up.

I'm sorry you're talking about trans awareness and didn't even call HER by the right pronoun?

Welcome to the future, guys.

EDIT: The point of this post was to point out how the launcher changed to be like it was back in gingerbread.

+Jason MacEmcy Exactly! I don't think it helps any faster, and plus the Google bar is always there to search for apps on the phone, so why do we need a special search box?

I am really annoyed when devs spend all the time to improve their app but won't write two lines saying what they did.

"- Improved: Changed techy bit of code that improved loading time in 0.3 seconds and uses 13mb less
- Fixed: Exploit that caused unauthorized users that send a three bit code to fully take control of user account.
- Upper bar is now 6.57cm tall, instead of 6.6cm
- Added animated emoji support holder for possible future releases
- Removed large emoji support holder. Project discarded."

It isn't really necessary to a changelog to look like this. If it's nothing you should worry or be excited about, you shouldn't be bothered.

Just imagine your grandmother (considering she's not an tech enthusiast) receiving an app update and being greeted with a 50 line long changelog, full with technical details.
