How to ruin a good thing…

"…the software and services team, the folks who are largely responsible for all the Moto-bred features we love today. Moto Voice. Moto Display. Moto Assist. Etc — the people responsible for those are gone, and will be replaced by Lenovo engineers."

I hope Google will take them back. They should've kept Moto - especially now that Alphabet is a reality, they could've kept it more separate from Google.
I could see how it would piss off some of the Android partners, though.

In case anyone is holding off on the Windows 10 upgrade, don't. I updated four computers. An 8 year old HTPC, a 7 year old laptop, a 5 year old all-in-one, and a Surface 3. They all updated flawlessly.

You kind of just hit the install button, walk away, and come back ~30 minutes later. Click a few "next" buttons, and you're done. Your desktop and apps are just how you left them. The experience is mostly the same as Windows 7, with some of the nice features of Windows 8 splashed in.

+1 Microsoft.

Pretty good article covering script loading. Introduced me to some things I didn't know about. Worth the read. Getting a reliable loading experience for slow connections is a must.
How to squeeze more performance out of script loading.

I started reading it, then couldn't put it down. The oddest thing I've ever been hooked with.

It's kind of one of those videos that you ignore, because you think it's not going to be that great…then, you finally get around to watching it and it's fantastic.

I didn't bother watching it before, but I went to a live Postmodern Jukebox concert at L.A a month ago and saw her tap dancing. She was amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Worth every second :)

Improved my collapsibleDirective:
 - Uses an isolate scope now.
 - Uses an api to trigger toggle events.
 - Collapse attribute can be set with a scope value, and toggled accordingly.
 - Rewrote how setMaxHeight is triggered.
