I spent a good portion of one of #io16's Android office hours sessions trying to convince +Dan Sandler, +Selim Cinek, and the System UI team that we need the Restart option back in the power menu. Even if it comes back at first as part of System UI Tuner.

He seemed receptive to the idea, but getting any feature past design and user experience teams into AOSP could be an uphill battle.

Hopefully, the results of this poll will help them see the light.

‘No One Should Really Be On Here More Than 15 Minutes A Day,’ Say Executives
MENLO PARK, CA—Addressing concerns about the site’s alleged bias in how it displays news stories in users’ feeds, Facebook executives held a press conference Thursday to clarify that the social network was not intended to serve as anyone’s primary source of information, and that its 1.6 billion active users should, at most, be spending 15 minutes on the platform in a given day in the first place.

I contacted Santander regarding Android Pay launching in the UK. They had this to say:

"I can confirm that Santander is aware of the launch of Android Pay and we are actively working with Google so that customers can use Android Pay later in 2016.

Regrettably we do not have confirmation of when this will be available for Santander customers, however this will be advertised when it is due to become available.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."

So it will come eventually.
