Dear +Google,
When I add a contact to my contacts, please don't change their name.
I receive an email from someone, I select 'Add to Contacts.' This adds them to my contact list, however I want to fill out their contact card. So I go to your new google.com/contacts page, although I was expecting the old one, and now I can't find that newly added contact now using the name as listed in the original email because you changed their name to their +Google+ profile name, a name I've never heard of and don't know this person by.

PLEASE STOP!
Thanks.

Pro-tip: If you have a failed drive in a RAID due to bad sectors, keep the drive active in the RAID until the rebuild is ready to start. Your data will thank you if you have second drive that contains bad sectors in the same array.
Note, I am not a pro.

Also when running a raid array, pay attention to the lights on the front panel if it isn't on network or you'll end up with 2 dead disks in a raid 6 for 6 months....i officially admit nothing.

I'll admit, I don't know much about international law, but how is a US company subject to foreign laws?
Europe’s antitrust chief is expected to accuse the search giant of using its dominant position to favor its own services, a case that could force a change in its practices.

But "Hurr durr I'ma sheep" trounced "I like online polls" by a 62-to-38% margin, in a poll that people weren't even supposed to participate in. Who can argue with solid numbers like that? 5,796 votes from people who can't even follow the most basic directions?
I know, I didn't follow directions either.
after extensive statistical analysis of my G+ polling, I've come to the inescapable conclusion that internet polls are bad. Big surprise. But "Hurr durr I'ma sheep" trounced "I like online polls" by a 62-to-38% margin, in a poll that people weren't even supposed to participate in.

How Animals Hacked The Rainbow And Got Stumped On Blue
http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2014/11/17/how-animals-hacked-the-rainbow-and-got-stumped-on-blue/

NPR has a short piece on the evolution of color in the animal kingdom and how some animals aren’t visually what they seem:

“Blue is fascinating because the vast majority of animals are incapable of making it with pigments,” Prum says.

In fact, of all Earth’s inhabitants with backbones, not one is known to harbor blue pigment. Even some of the most brilliantly blue things in nature — a peacock feather, or a blue eye, for example — don’t contain a single speck of blue pigment. So, how can they look so blue?_

“They have evolved a new kind of optical technology, if you will, to create this color,” Prum explains — it’s a trick of structure.

Blue morpho butterflies are great examples. Biologist Dan Babbitt keeps some at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s insect zoo.
