+Sam Hewitt has been just an absolute icon making machine the last couple of days. Tons of great stuff landing in master. Lots of refinements and optimizations, nice redesigns.

I've got to take a second to be super proud of our icons. elementary icons is one of the oldest and best maintained icon sets around and chances are, whatever icon set you're using right now is either derived from it or inspired by it, especially if you're using Ubuntu or something based on it. We're 6 years strong on delivering quality, legible icons under a free license. Almost 2,000 commits, wide icon name coverage, several authors, always being improved. It's a super impactful project and I'm really happy that we can be upstream to tons of other projects here.

I only worked with him for a month or so on Solus, but he was very friendly and a great person to work with. Hope to see him in more headlines soon! :-)

Life pro tip: any time you see this type of scratch off strip, you can just peel it up to reveal the code.

I've been wondering about Vue. We'd have to cancel our HBO Now subscription budgeting-wise, so I'm not sure if it's worth it or not...
 
I cut the cord with a PlayStation 4 and Playstation Vue. Here is how I did it: http://www.jonobacon.org/2016/08/16/cutting-the-cord-with-playstation-vue/
We finally cut the cord from DirecTV with a combination of a Playstation 4 and Playstation Vue. It works great and is cheaper. Here's how we did it.

I still want a phone case like this for my Xperia phone...
 
Six years ago today, the first mockup of the ill-fated Sony Xperia Play was leaked. We had big hopes for this phone. #throwbackthursday  
Earlier today, Engadget broke an exclusive regarding Sony-Ericsson’s work on an Android gaming handset that is currently “in the late stages of planning.”... by David Ruddock in News, Sony Ericsson, Xperia Play (Zeus, PlayStation Phone)

I usually like Noodles & Co, but this location was a bit disappointing. Loud music coming from the kitchen that was louder than the dining area music, and very disappointing pad thai made our visit pretty mediocre.
