I flashed PA 5.0 Alpha on my Nexus 4 last night. Looking great so far and only had one issue (gapps required the micro since the others were too large).

I do have one question. With peek, is it built in, or do I still  need the app? I had the app before, so a restore put it back on the phone, but I wasn't sure if I could remove it and have it still active.

If I worked at a police station, I'd have my force reporting police everywhere at all times. ;)

Also, isn't it a good thing we get an alert? I know it makes me slow down if I'm speeding.

The police want Waze to pull speed trap tagging feature from app
When selecting a GPS device there are many factors to consider, like map quality, points-of-interest integration, and if it can help you avoid tickets.

And you only have one officer in town, which is either at the bank or setting a speed trap. That sounds very limiting for the job they actually do.

#boot2docker  has come a long way, and now I'm wondering: What are the benefits of using #dvm  to use #docker  on a mac? Has boot2docker caught up making #dvm  a wash?

I've been a huge fan of +feedly for a long time now. This is a good article on their transition to material design, but really, they were already designing their app flow in a material way.
A deep dive into what feedly would look like with all the Material Design guidelines applied. By feedly’s lead designer.

Battery saver mode in Lollipop is amazing! But there needs to be a way to whitelist apps/services. For example Hangouts, so I can get my messages.

I'm looking at you Cyanogenmod. ;)

I told Google Play Music to not play explicit music on radios while I'm around the kids. GPM: "Okay cool. Here is blurred lines where they say b!7$% and a$$"

The flexibility of the cloud and the ability to create—or remove—a resource on demand has fundamentally changed the way that IT thinks about compute resources. As more enterprises power their websites and applications in the cloud, they should be aware of the differences between designing for the cloud and designing for physical servers.

Join Rakcers +Alan Bush and +Bill Hertzing for our next Office Hours Hangout as they lead a discussion about Cloud Application Architecture Trend based on this white paper:
