This is a great piece about something I've wondered about.
The reputation isn’t just a stereotype—it’s the result of a calculated, highly progressive ad campaign launched 20 years ago.

It's so weird to actually see a regulatory agency work correctly.  On a related note, Tom Wheeler kinda owns.

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

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

This is exactly correct in every way.

Pretty much spot on indeed.

ChromeOS is better every day!
 
I'm very happy to announce that I have just released SMB/CIFS File System Provider implementation application. You can mount your file server based on SMB/CIFS protocol to the Files app directly. If you have Chromebook/Chromebox, try it soon!
Access a SMB/CIFS server directly from the Files app.

Why isn't this just built into Chrome?

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.

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.

Surprisingly good for a chain restaurant. Lots of options for a barbecue lover and good service. The prices are a little high but given the quantity and quality of the food I think it's worth it.

The best comedy club in the region, hands down. It's a good sized room, not too big and not too small, with low ceilings and of course the iconic brick wall. The food is decent, the drinks are good, and the service is excellent. The comics seem to enjoy the room and while I've seen many shows here, I've never been let down by the venue. By all accounts this is well run comedy club and if you're looking to take in a show there isn't anywhere nearby better to do so.

For a hotel in the suburbs I'll admit I expected a larger room than what we had. More disappointing though were the small things not included in the price, like breakfast or wifi. Probably won't be back. That said the room was clean and quiet.

As with all Chick-Fil-A locations, the food is delicious, the employees are way too nice, and it's crowded.

My local coffee shop! Frequently crowded, this cozy place is a Park Hills staple. The coffee is good and locally sourced and the decor is homey and precious. Local artists' works are available for sale on the walls. My only complaint would be that in the morning the sunlight can make a good portion of the seating too warm for comfort and too bright for computer use. Due to the crowds this can mean simply not getting a chance to sit and work.

Clean, large accessible parking lot, and a friendly staff, this department store is a good one. In particular their home goods are stylish and priced well.

An older Meijer and it shows, but good prices and selection.
