Blimey!
 
Heads up to all +NVIDIA Shield Tablet owners. A recall is now taking place due to a potential battery fire risk. Not all tablets are affected, Nvidia has posted instructions to determine if yours is impacted and instructions to get it replaced.

Pass this along to anyone you know who may own one of these.

Hooray for Google Play Beta testing without the Google+ requirement.  Though I have grown to enjoy the Google+ community for communicating with beta users, it has been a hurdle for some to join betas.

The Nexus 1 was one of my favourite Nexus devices.
 
Hello, old friend. I am amazed that it still works, and that it is happily running the Google Play Store (on Android 2.something). Can't remember how to use the thing!

Hoping to get it up to 4.1.1 (apparently it can), and have it to get texts and calls when I am away with a local SIM in my Nexus 5.

"""That's a mistake media companies, which invested heavily and with high hopes in social networking, are only just starting to understand. News Corp. is struggling to make sense of the $580 million it paid for MySpace, Time Warner has publicly regretted the $850 million it spent on Bebo, and Yahoo recently shuttered Geocities, for which it paid some $3 billion back in the late 1990s. Despite these troubling signs, Facebook has raised more than $300 million from private investors who value the company at over $10 billion, and on Friday Twitter announced that it has completed a new round of funding, reportly raising $100 million at a price that values the young social network near $1 billion. What are the chances that these are good investments? Facebook mentions that it may have some profits, and Twitter talks about generating revenue soon, but because these companies are private, the real data are secret.

Here is my experience: I launched the social networking site Tripod in 1995. By 1998, it was the eighth-largest site on the Web. But Tripod was never a successful business. Social networks aren't great places to advertise. You can't charge users for their services. And they never gain enough momentum to survive in the stock market. Indeed, no social network has ever made it as a public company."""

"""It’s great to see that the concept of mmap()-able, zero-copy serialization formats are catching on, and it’s wonderful that all are open source under liberal licenses. But as a user, you might be left wondering how all these systems compare. You have a vague idea that all these encodings are “fast”, particularly compared to Protobufs or other more-traditional formats. But there is more to a serialization protocol than speed, and you may be wondering what else you should be considering.

The goal of this blog post is to highlight some of the main qualitative differences between these libraries as I see them. Obviously, I am biased, and you should consider that as you read. Hopefully, though, this provides a good starting point for your own investigation of the alternatives."""
News. Cap'n Proto, FlatBuffers, and SBE. kentonv on 17 Jun 2014. Update Jun 18, 2014: I have made some corrections since the original version of this post. Update Dec 15, 2014: Updated to reflect that Cap'n Proto 0.5 now supports Visual Studio and that Java is now well-supported.

+Daniel Egnor - Actually, at work we have a situation where we do send Android resources over the network. That took less effort than re-inventing a UI description language.

Come for the "but why didn't they use Instagram's ig-json-parser" and stay for the "so that's how Flatbuffers work."
In last six months, we have transitioned most of Facebook on Android to use FlatBuffers as the storage format.

The main feature I want is no more shared-link hijacking in the mobile app.

Nice. The original Z was one of my favorite RTSes of all time. It's also available on Android.

"""Season 4: Episodes 18 and 19, “In A Mirror, Darkly” Parts 1 and 2 And here’s another Easter egg for the faithful: a two-parter set in the “mirror universe” of the original series’ “Mirror, Mirror,” and relishing the campy drama that comes along with the setting. For the continuity-minded, there are excerpts from Star Trek: First Contact to explain where the mirror universe branched off from the regular Star Trek timeline, while the rest of us can enjoy the 1960s costumes and the suitably different opening titles."""

Those 2 episodes were the highlight of this show for me.
 
A decade since the show’s cancelation, it’s time to revisit 'Enterprise,' and see how it stands up to the test of time (and space).

I do. It solves the problem when I have a vague sense of what I want but don't know the name. Admittedly this assumes that developers will buy ads on sensible keywords.

A chaotic neutral point of view
Introduction
I make things (code/photos/words) and wave my arms around a lot when I talk.

I'm a Developer Advocate at Google.

I'm also the co-author of O'Reilly's "Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the aspiring software craftsman" and you can find out more about that book here: http://www.oshineye.com/books.html

I'm also part of the small team behind http://developerexperience.org/ which is an attempt to see if we can successfully apply the techniques of user experience professionals to products and tools for developers. We call it Developer Experience or #devexp for short.

I believe that identity, like truth, is performed rather than expressed so here are some links that may help you understand who I am and what I do:
I help run a handful of Google+ Pages:
I participate in a handful of public Google+ Communities:
There are others but they're either private or delightfully obscure.

You can see recordings of various talks/presentations I've given: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4029784577E43D1E and you can read about the tools I use: http://adewale.oshineye.usesthis.com/

Good steak but the gloomy lighting and frozen rather than freshly made dessert let the side down. It's got a friendly atmosphere and the view of the Bay Bridge is nice but if you're going to spend this kind of money you should go to Alexander's.

Great burgers served really quickly. I'm not a fan of their garlic fries.

A nice little shop with a wide range of japanese sweets. They also serve tea on-site but they only really have 2 tables so you may end up sharing with strangers.

Nice chicken wraps, free wifi (from their neighbours at Hackbright) and a peaceful ambience at the weekend.

This is a great creperie that also serves galettes with a wide range of sweet and savoury fillings. You do have to remember to tell them that you don't want whipped cream on your chocolate. No wifi. They only have a small number of tables.
