I hardly visit G+ at all anymore and I'm nearing 6000 followers.

You stopped coming around cause you know I was right about everything and you were tired of looking like a fool. Understandable. I would do the same in your position. I just hope your aging brain hasn't begun to delude you into thinking it's for any other reason. So sad to see an elderly person slipping away.

I don't know... James - the thing is the way some of them are accelerating and then moving back the way they came while others that seem to be the same distance away are remaining immobile. That isn't how something driven by the wind should move.

But it is hard to tell. It could be one that is way closer than the ones that seem to be the same distance away.

Writing for +Android Authority a year or so ago I voiced my concerns about the security of Android webcams. Of course, Android Droid Drones claimed I was paranoid.

You do realize that most apps don't instantly open the camera stream to the app before you've even selected that you in fact want to take and upload an image using the camera, right? 

Most apps, Facebook for example... you click on Status Update, you click on Photo and it asks you if you want to upload a photo or take one - and ONLY if you chose that you want to TAKE a photo, does it open up the camera. 

But the problem, it turns out, is worse than even that. The entire camera subsystem and framework is easily compromised and full of potential exploits. Which just makes Google's design of the native Android app that much more troubling and disturbing. 

Same shit, over and over again from Android apologists. Just as bad as Apple users, really.

I've been seeing other social media outlets for awhile.
It was a bad marriage while it lasted.

It doesn't work anymore. Google results are nothing like they used to be. They only show you what they want you to see.

Been completely busy the last week. Managed to fit in drawing this on my new ASUS Vivotab 8 note using a Bamboo stylus. Pretty happy with the results.

As for skills... so I hear, too bad no one is paying me for any of 'em. ;)

Ok. We are going to probably be hanging out downtown and gaslamp all day on foot. Send me a hangout message whenever you are in town.

Once again - shit like THIS is why I don't visit G+. It is a political opinion echo chamber with a strong Left bias... but everyone is playing along regardless of their partisan bias.

I remember those Quake days. You had a pretty good setup back then.

On the original topic, they are pretty brave behind the keyboard but not in real life. Back then some of us would "identify" the online trolls in real life, and they always turned out to be pretty gutless.

Oregon has gone off the deep end on this issue.
In a sign of the overt fascism and religious persecution to come in the wake of a Left emboldened by the Supreme Court’s recent gay marriage ruling, a judge in Oregon has issued a gag order denying two Christian bakery

+WIRED  is less pages, more ads, with articles like butter spread too thin on toast, these days.

Seriously - this layout looks like a DIY eZine from the early 80's in the amount of dead space it leaves - stretching an article that could have fit on two pages across 4, all of which had more space dedicated to actual ads than to the badly laid out article. It isn't just using fonts that are too small to read anymore - they've taken every aspect of the magazine into a non-reader-friendly experience.
