Been using it's cheaper brother which is UAP Pro, 5Ghz is great, 2.4Ghz seems to struggle if there is any interference. You noticed this at all on the UAP-AC?

Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal as designers is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies.

Hello world, we’re Google Design, and we’re here to share our stories and ideas about design throughout Google—from how Google search evolved, and continues to evolve, to our latest ideas on #materialdesign, an approach to experience design that we announced earlier today at #io14.

We’re also here to listen to your stories and ideas, and to help you, the designer and developer, create amazing products for your users on platforms like Android and the web. After all, design is a conversation, and great design is inherently collaborative.

And as the design conversation evolves here on Google+, we’re going to collect the key principles and the best stories on google.com/design, a new web property that brings it all together, from design specifications, to inspiring videos, all in one convenient location. Check it out by following the link below.
A site for Google design guidelines, resources and job opportunities

Small guide for anyone using   #Gradle   #android   #robolectric   #Jacoco   #dagger  works around the $$ bug.
Chris Jenkins 12 Jun 2014. Gradle & Robolectric & Jacoco & Dagger. As a few have, I stumbled into this $$ jacoco bug. To be fair this is not so much a GradlePlugin bug as more Jacoco/Dagger. Semantics aside, we wanted to know about our unit test coverage with Robolectric.

Great project from a great team.
 
It's new and it's nice. But it isn't compatible with 1.x.

Such atom
 
CodeGlance

Intelij plugin that displays a zoomed out overview or minimap similar to the one found in Sublime into the editor pane. The minimap allows for quick scrolling letting you jump straight to sections of code.

It's real. And it's fucked.
Planned new rules would allow an Internet provider to negotiate separately with content companies and charge them for priority service.

Appalling experience, insulted by the owner when trying to give constructive feedback. Hope other people have better luck.

Don't understand the health food or whole food movement, they are monetizing on people who assume what they sell is high quality. Avoid, Whole Foods is cheaper and understand everything on their shelves.

Mediocre, for the price and time it took I've had infinitely better sushi / Japanese.

Never ever had a bad coffee from these guys! They will never rush a coffee. Also if try there guess blends, always lovely and a bit different if you want to mix it up.
