Dear internet: Can you please in inappropriate excruciating detail explain the state machine that typically controls this class of devices?
Thank you, a stupid user.

Really inspiring, really impressive.
 
There have been a lot of articles on Google[x] and "fail fast", but this transcript of Astro Teller's recent talk is interesting because of the multitude of concrete examples.

https://medium.com/backchannel/how-to-make-moonshots-65845011a277

I actually tried to apply to the self-driving car team for a position I thought I was qualified for, and they didn't even reply to my email to say "no thanks", which kinda bummed me out.
Astro Teller says that at Google[x], failure is indeed an option. So is changing the world.

#DevTools Update: Animation Inspector

The experimental Animation Inspector gives you a visual overview of animated properties. You can resize them to control the duration, but also drag them around to control the delay. In addition to that, there's also a playback control (and a speed setting) so you can easily replay the animation.

Get Magic Now

Simplest possible e-commerce experience - text whatever you want to buy - pizza, travel, whatever.

Josh Williams (ex-Gowalla) discussed this trend in app design recently, towards ultra-minification and being able to explain what an app does in terms of a simple question https://player.fm/1NKZaT

FINALLY
 
Big launch for the team today!  We've hugely improved Google Contacts.  The once tedious task of "managing" your contacts on Google has been made a lot easier, more intelligent... and more beautiful...  The launch is still a 'preview', so go to contacts.google.com/preview, check it out, and let them know what you think!

Seriously, this is amazing for debugging. #drupal  
 
I just found something amazing in Drupal 7

When you're working on Drupal project next time do yourself a favor and run this drush script:

drush vset theme_debug TRUE

That will turn on Drupal's theme debug logic that apparently landed last november and a key improvement to Drupal 8 that was backported to drupal 7.

It's purpose is to tell you (in HTML code comments) what templates are actually rendering the markup you're seeing and what template name suggestions are available for you.
