Not sure I like this change, and what's with the weird flower/spinner thing?

But sure, I'll download it because it has a higher version number. And so will you.

Another very minor tweak for the What's New section.

+Brandon Nunn It's possible, but nobody at any point made any remarks about recognizing my name or any sort of preferential treatment. I was quoted repair charges several times when I called. Maybe different repair centers have different work loads?

+The Verge​​'s click baity techniques are finally starting to bite them in the ass (I imagine that's a huge reason for the deterioration of comment upbeatness).

Handling the situation this way is a mistake, of course (IMO), no matter how negative the tone of their comments has gotten. It's a can of worms no site should open. And when they turn them back on, they won't hear the end of it.
 
It was going to happen sooner or later! I wish the site completely shuts down unless they stop licking Apple's boots and learn how to do objective and unbiased journalism. +Artem Russakovskii​

I have a hard time surfing anywhere lately, everything is list this and click bait that, misleading titles and hyping up bullshit one sided stories, there's no one reputable anymore.

This is a really great deal on a fantastic UPS.

I've had this model for 3 years now, and I love everything about it. Bought for $160 or so, but Amazon Gold Box deal of the day today has it for under $100.

Tempted to buy more, but I already have two...

The ones with pure sine wave cost a little more, but will eliminate the issues with some PC power supplies.

There's nothing wrong with the UPS or your PC if you run into that issue... Its just some power supplies aren't compatible with a staircase sine wave vs pure.

+Waza_Be​ actually I don't use the service at all (maybe sometimes I download updated Google apps if there is a new design or something).
I haven't thought about the things you said and you're right, it's actually quite annoying.
I know it's not the best solution, but you can add some kind of "in app filter" that checks the device model and closes the app (with a message or something) if the device running the app is not compatible.
About its legality, I'm pretty sure that free apk's can be distributed, and there's no law against it.

Just found this in my inbox from about 1.5 months ago.

 I have access to the Android Auto update for Hyundai Sonatas. Any chance you are willing to trade the files for a giveaway win?

The nerve...

Breaking news, guys. People in Liechtenstein can now download paid apps on the Play Store as of today.

Android developers should expect to get rich enough to retire in no time.

+Kojiro Kamex because the Artem's post was sarcastic meaning he didn't think it was big news either. My post was agreeing with him.

Testing the +Logitech M570 http://amzn.to/1dIp6y5 alongside Anker vertical mouse (https://plus.google.com/+ArtemRussakovskii/posts/QmspAg5XVnL). Both have pluses and minuses, and are very different in usage, obviously.

I've never used a trackball before, and it sure will take some getting used to, but I can already see a lot of resemblance to a laptop touchpad and the Adesso HTPC keyboard I had for a few years (so actually, I guess yeah, I did use the trackball before, I lied).

The problem is how hard it is to perform precise movements with the trackball. I don't know if I'd ever be able to be efficient at it.

I keep switching between my regular mouse and these two, and so far, there's no clear winner. Things are much slower and less intuitive with these two, which is expected, but the main problem is I'm not sure my wrist pain is shrinking at all, if not getting worse because of more strain on the wrist in general. More pressure needed to press the buttons on the vertical mouse and move the cursor more accurately and the trackball is another story entirely - thumb strain and overall awkwardness of figuring out where to put my wrist to reach all the pieces comfortably.

Where's the telepathic mouse already?
