I just picked up (contributed towards) a second Ubuntu Edge. The contribution/price was just lowered, making them more attractive.

Thanks for all of your feedback on last week's Hangouts launch. I wanted to quickly talk about 1) making/receiving phone calls in Gmail, and 2) Google Voice support more generally.
1) Today's version of Hangouts doesn't yet support outbound calls on the web and in the Chrome extension, but we do support inbound calls to your Google Voice number. We're working hard on supporting both, and outbound/inbound calls will soon be available. In the meantime, you can continue using Google Talk in Gmail.
2) Hangouts is designed to be the future of Google Voice, and making/receiving phone calls is just the beginning. Future versions of Hangouts will integrate Google Voice more seamlessly.
It turns out that S3 files transferred to Glacier are more expensive than leaving them in S3 for files that are 13 KB or smaller, and not cost effective for some range above that.
I have updated the article including a new formula for calculating the break-even point for automatic archival of S3 objects to Glacier.
I wrote this article to demonstrate a simple way to restart the delete or archive countdown using the new aws-cli command line tool.
Built by a friend.
