Really awesome stuff continues to come from Microsoft.

The comments are very interesting too, especially comparing to Google's internal tools, which are godlike, apparently. 


With GVFS, this means that they now have a Git experience that is much more manageable: clone now takes a few minutes instead of 12+ hours, checkout takes 30 seconds instead of 2-3 hours, and status takes 4-5 seconds instead of 10 minutes. And we’re working on making those numbers even better.

Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-darwin.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.

Wow, security researcher hacks a Facebook server, finds that someone much more nefarious had already hacked it previously.

He reported it to FB and got paid out $10K via the bug bounty program. Something like this should be worth a lot more if you ask me, but I'm sure he didn't mind the payout regardless.
