Close. They actually embed the bands with fairy dust and puppy giggles. They don't really do much beyond exposing you to elevated levels of those elements. 😝

Google Play Music now has free radio for whatever you need music for — from working, to working out, to working it on the dance floor. We craft each station song by song so you don’t have to (US only) http://goo.gl/K7FjIU

As if it isn't bad enough to HAVE a cap for shitty internet (25mb) that is way overpriced ($75/mth) now Comcast is INJECTING SHIT DIRECTLY INTO MY HTTP TRAFFIC. Wat! Are you fucking kidding me Comcast? I'm sure it's in your terms of service somewhere that you can screw people that way too, but the fact that you don't understand or care how heinous that is, and that you would even consider it, means you have no idea what an ISP is supposed to be, or do. And, it makes me even more angry and eager to fire you fucks as soon as I get the chance. +Comcast

I have posted slides from my talk "Eliminating Code Overhead" which I gave yesterday at Square.

By themselves, these slides are sparse on any explanation or reasoning for what's on them. The event was recorded and a video of me blabbering over them will be made available later.

The CPU, RAM, and disk are finite resources that are often taken for granted as unbounded. Not only is this obviously untrue, but the use of these resources directly affects the most important resource on a mobile device: the battery. This talk will focus on techniques that both libraries and applications can implement to ensure their effect is in general without overhead.

Google , there is such a thing as being too helpful. Under your "Ciao Seattle" message it put the "translate" button.
