Phishing protection is already a disable-able option in Chrome and on managed platforms (we have it actually deployed at work now) you can strip out all the Google stuff altogether so I imagine it's not a great hassle in that environment either.

In any case it's worth having installed for the standard user but it really should just be part and parcel with logging in under your account in Chrome.

A great interview.
As Rock prepares for the release of <i>Top Five,</i> a bittersweet film comedy in which he does triple duty as director, screenwriter, and star.

+Adam Stovall You have to read this.  Everyone else, if you liked the third-best Trek film, Galaxy Quest, then you'll really like this.
The cast and crew of Galaxy Quest - including Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, and Alan Rickman - explain how the cult classic came together in their own words, for the fifteenth anniversary.

I keep wanting to get this one day on blue. Maybe with STNG nearing completion I should continue and get it.

I hate to be CharlieBrooker.rss over here but 1) he still owns and 2) this is the best analysis of the Facebook emotion experiment kerfluffle I've read.
Charlie Brooker: Facebook's emotion study reveals it is hopelessly disconnected from emotional reality: that people get upset when people they care about are unhappy

+Ron Amadeo is one of my favorite tech journalists.  You know how there are a hundred press release copypastes for every one interesting and well-constructed piece that actually contains original work and content?  Well he's the one whose name is on the 1%.  He made Android Police reputable and now he gives Ars the best Android coverage.  This is an example of that not because it has anything new, but because it has everything we already knew in one place.

I'm posting this partially so my friends who are interested might see it but mainly so that I have a ready link to it in case I need to refer to it.

Haha! I'm travelling/meetings/workshops/staff-dinners etc. But I'm tempted to take some time out to play it in our street :)

Anyone with LastPass should do this.  It owns and the Android integration is fantastic.  Especially you, +Amber Yeary .

Looks like this changed to only new users within an hour.  Might be a bit   #FYGM  but now I'm Premium through May 2016. +Amber Yeary missed out. :(

I came to this via the excellent Monday Note blog that Jean-Louis Gassée writes.  +Paul Lofthouse has often described Microsoft's (lack of) strategy in historical contexts.  This article attempts to do the same and I think it's quite effective.  It could use some more examples but sadly I'll bet anyone who even casually follows the tech industry could come up with dozens more as they read through what's provided here.
Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy's plans; the next best is to prevent the junction of the enemy's forces; the next in order is to

I'll admit that while I outwardly never stated that I thought the Nexus line would go away, I was starting to get concerned due to the volume of rumors to that effect.

I guess +Amber Yeary will get her next Nexus in November.  (Odd Nexus channel 4 lyfe tho.)

You and Paul both have GSM Galaxy Nexuses still.  I'm impressed because my old one died within a month of me selling it.

I really like the Nexus 5 as it's the first one I've found to be without compromise since the Nexus One.  At this point though I can't see not waiting another six months though.

Brooker of course still owns.

It sounds right but he's British so it might be "ownership".

Great people, great service, great food, and great sports experience. What more do you want out of a B-Dubs?

Possibly my favorite restaurant and definitely the best Indian in Cincinnati, I love this place. The food is always excellent and authentic, the service is wonderful, and the portions are generous.

Awful. Despite the restaurant being mostly empty we were seated at a table next to screaming children. After a long wait the server took our order. The dressing for the salad was separated, having become mostly oil with bits of basil at the bottom. Our drinks ran dry about one third of the way through the wholly unremarkable pepperoni pizza and our waitress never refilled them. With only one napkin each things got messy to the point of embarrassment but our server wasn't convenient (the restaurant still being mostly empty). For what you get, the prices border on robbery. Adding to that the poor quality of service and I'm certain we'll never be frequenting this chain again. When a restaurant falls below what I'd expect from Applebee's there's a problem. Even the decor was bad, with employee motivation signs visible from the table and the drink menu/offer cards on the table being in the way and difficult the weep to the side. Just a terrible experience all around.
