Probably because the development tools have been the most exciting of all the I/O

Android Studio  - 
 
Starting with version 1.3, Android Studio will no longer support IDE-specific Gradle JVM argument settings. Gradle JVM settings need to be set in gradle.properties files. This change is necessary to keep build output consistent, regardless of where the build is executed (IDE, command line or CI server.)
If your project is using IDE-specific Gradle JVM arguments, Android Studio will, on project sync, help you copy those settings to your project's gradle.properties file.
The "Gradle VM options" text field in the "Gradle" settings page has been removed as well.

Thank for the detailed description +Brian Swetland​!
I can only imagine what it's like as I'm working from home for years now and always wonder if I'm missing something.

+Ian Freeman made a good point on my previous post:
Take the "Nope culture" I worry that people are, or will kill more spiders then they normally would; because of all these jokes that resolve a perceived disgust. The action needed to remove the spider is simply a cup and a piece of cardboard to capture the spider and take it outside.

Even though spider jokes are funny, I never thought about their potential consequences. Thanks, Ian.
They help us out in more ways than we know, and humans should take better care of them.

I won't kill them, but I still reserve the right to say Nopety, Nope, Nope Nope.

Another change in the Gradle integration in Android Studio 1.3 is proxy settings for Gradle. Now proxy settings need to be specified in gradle.properties files, to keep build output consistent with command line builds¹.
If Android Studio detects, during project sync, that your IDE has proxy settings, it will ask you to copy those settings over to your project's gradle.properties file².

¹ https://plus.google.com/+AlexRuiz/posts/chfy8V1yqCb 
² It is recommended that you specify proxy settings in the gradle.properties file in your Gradle home directory, to make them available to all projects and to avoid user-specific proxy settings conflicts.

If it's on the Internet, it must be true. Right?

The study was 100 percent authentic. My colleagues and I recruited actual human subjects in Germany. We ran an actual clinical trial, with subjects randomly assigned to different diet regimes. And the statistically significant benefits of chocolate that we reported are based on the actual data. It was, in fact, a fairly typical study for the field of diet research. Which is to say: It was terrible science. The results are meaningless, and the health claims that the media blasted out to millions of people around the world are utterly unfounded.

Our paper was accepted for publication by multiple journals within 24 hours. Needless to say, we faced no peer review at all.
“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

With some knowledge and critical thinking, anybody could have realized this was a fake. Consuming sugar, especially that amount, won't help you lose weight.
