New "-round" resource qualifier in Android M Preview 2
 
Round screen layouts are now part of the `Configuration`[0] in Android M preview 2. In other words, this new addition introduces a shiny new "-round" resource qualifier that allow developers to have different layouts between round and rectangle screens (as you can currently do with WatchViewStub[1] for instance).

What does all of that mean? Well, if this addition makes it to the Android M release, "hacks" around WindowInsets.isRound()[2] and use of WatchViewStub will finally be over.

From this morning's ride. Alice's was packed, but there were a lot of cops there today, kind of annoying.

I'll post a video later this weekend.

I haven't exercised for real in a really long time. I know it ain't much, but it's a start, and I'll keep going at it.

Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and (if you zoom in and look closely and past the fog) The Golden Gate Bridge.

This is the second time this happens. That plastic part sucks, they made it so that it slides from the front, towards the back, and then it has a tab with a screw to hold it in place.

That's also the same spot where you put your legs and takes all the pressure during braking, so your legs are pushing that plastic thing towards the front and there's only one small screw holding it, until the tab breaks, and it flies out.

It's cheap to replace, but there's a piece of the techspec tank grip stuck to it, and it went with it :-/

Need to try this
Because Enough is Enough Already. We've all seen them - the clickbait headlines that websites like Buzzfeed, ViralNova and UpWorthy use to drive traffic, especially through social networks. Even Huffington Post has jumped on the bandwagon of endless recycled listicles and bombastic titles.

And that was the end of my Project Fi test. In summary, it's too expensive.

Other than that, it works great, although the back-off to Sprint is not that awesome, sometimes it was slower than T-Mobile EDGE.

Yeah, and for someone like me who burns through 10-15GB a month, I may as well go with Verizon :\

Project Fi update

TL;DR: Works great, but switching back to the T-Mobile SIM card in the next few days.

Works great, really, I can finally use my phone when I go to some places where T-Mobile has bad or no reception, like my local Costco.

However, battery life takes a hit, it uses up almost double the life than what a regular SIM card does. Probably because of it looking up for the best possible signal between the different providers?

Also, it's too pricey for me. I personally use anything between 3-6GB/mo on my phone. I decided to add 3GB on my Project Fi account to try and stay under, and because that is the only way for it to be more affordable than T-Mobile, once I go past 3GB, I end up paying more than what I'm paying with T-Mobile. With T-Mobile I get unlimited data (yes, unlimited) and 5GB hotspot (2G speeds after that), and I pay almost the same I'd pay for 3GB with Fi.

3GB is clearly not working out for me, as seen on the screenshot below, so I just won't do it. My T-Mobile SIM Card is going back into the phone as soon as I finish using this up. Thankfully I didn't transfer my number to Project Fi, I just got a new one and forwarded my calls to it, and since I never make phone calls it doesn't matter.

I also hope that T-Mobile launches that 700mhz LTE spectrum soon, that could fix my reception issues with them.

With all this said, I think Project Fi is a step in the right direction overall, the technology is great and the service works very well. Google would need to lower Project Fi's prices a bit more in order for this to be competitive and relevant, but I don't think that will happen.

One last thing, why are we still paying for data as if it was some sort of exhaustible resource?
