The pizza I just put in the oven is labelled as "made with 100% real cheese". I'm somewhat concerned, but here we go.

Hi Ali, sorry to ask here, but I just watched your very nice 2013 I/O presentation on the Drive SDK and was wondering if using a spreadsheet in Drive is still the best way to manipulate individual rows for a Drive-based backup of an Android sqlite database?  Many thanks. )

Reference question here:  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27627605/sync-device-sqlite-database-rows-to-google-drive

I love this tune.

Then I saw the video. The boy band is really well (badly) done. Kyng, Mar'Vain, Octavian and Popeye. Legendary.

Just make sure you watch past 50 seconds.

One of the great songs. Performed masterfully with an orchestra, so "how can it feel this wrong?"

+Michael Hart If Apple gets silly about this and tries to use some kind of copyright/patent mechanism to keep anyone from freeing Swift from the OS X/iOS ecosystem, it is almost certain to fail, regardless of the popularity of iOS.

You are absolutely correct about the importance of the Windows market-share. Also, the market for Windows-based line-of-business apps is a huge economic factor that would have driven C#'s adoption. iOS is an increasingly-important business paltform, but it's not the Windows desktop.

I guess no fireside chats for Adolf. This is so utterly, utterly epic.

This is one of the worst Toys 'R' Us I have been to in multiple countries over 2 continents. It's cramped and old and skanky, and you can easily wait 30 minutes to check out. My son loves it though, and he is the connoisseur, so 4*

One of my favourite restaurants in the Bay Area. Incredible food, Lebanese classics with a twist and seasonal variety. A bit let down by service, but depends on the server, some are better than others. Snooty crowd too, I wonder if they realize just how good the food is here... nevermind, well worth it, a great meal.

Legit. Typically Santana-row pretentious but better than standing in line at Yard House.
