What is better: merge or rebase?

This is in the context of day to day commits, not merging long term branches.

Oh no! Google's logo has a problem!

As much as I like Google's new Logo, something about it is making me feel queezy.

If you haven't noticed, Google's 'L' has a blurry left side (blown up version shown by red arrow). The reason for this is because the original logo is at 2 scale, aimed for devices with high DPI. However, on normal DPI screens the image is halved in its dimensions.

The original logo's L is positioned at 431px as shown at the blue arrow. As Google should know odd numbers divided by 2 make decimals. When the logo on a non-retina device is displayed it's L character is positioned at 215.5px from the left, making the left side blurry.

So Mr. Google please can you correct the logo, as its really frustrating!

My Google+ following might give me 5 reshares, 20 comments, and 17 favorites for a piece of exclusive Google Glass reporting, while my Twitter following (of about the same number) just skips right by. 
Google+ has largely been heralded as dead, and that isn't for no reason. Most recently, Google has decided that it's time to stop pretending like people want it, and has started decoupling its othe...

Takes a while to get served, however it has just gone under renovation; this has improved the cinema greatly. As an unlimited customer, I often go to the cinema, and the range of films here is limited compared to the big Cineworld's such as Stevenage and Enfield, however the atmosphere is great and its great for going out to catch up with mates. Furthermore, one downfall is when renovating the cinema the screen seating capacity was reduced, to allow a staggered affect so you can see over the peoples heads in front of you, so sometimes new films that are popular will be booked out very quickly, and as an unlimited customer I can't book a seat unless going into the cinema before hand.
