Finally, a logical explanation for Google's communications app strategy: "Google's messaging strategy is actually designed by a poorly trained algorithm. It learned people like Facetime and Whatsapp, so, Google should make apps like those."
Is a fancy incoming call screen enough to make people switch?

Answer (1 of 16): Well, let’s take a look. Nate Silver’s method of predicting the presidential election works by creating seperate predictions for the results in each state. That’s a smart way to approach the problem since delegates are awarded by state anyway. It leads to much more accurate res...

Gotta hand it to Quora, their questions are impeccably curated, with such interesting answers and discussions! My favorite answer from the discussion:

"Here's what British PM David Lloyd George wrote about the Canadians who fought in the Battle of the Somme: 
 
'The Canadians played a part of such distinction that thenceforward they were marked out as storm troops; for the remainder of the war they were brought along to head the assault in one great battle after another. Whenever the Germans found the Canadian Corps coming into the line they prepared for the worst.'
"
Don't forget General Currie, eh. Not only are Canadian soldiers well respected - General Arthur William Currie from Montreal showed the Limeys that colonials...

From the article: "The original edition of Marihuana Reconsidered also included an essay by someone who referred to himself as "Mr. X," and he noted how being high in the shower helped him figure out how racism worked—a revelation that inspired him to write 11 essays in an hour. The claim sounded crazy, until it was revealed that Mr. X was Carl Motherfucking Sagan."
How the government and Big Pharma convinced us that stoners were dumbasses, and how marijuana legalization might just change that.

Simple/Free notification service that tells you if your email appears in any of of the public dumps of account details from any known site hacks (so you know for sure to change your password). Also (yet another) subtle reminder to not re-use passwords.

Some funny user comments in this article about Microsoft buying LinkedIn for 26Bn:

This way, Microsoft will be able to invite everyone on your contacts list to download Windows 10.

The next version will be renamed LyncIn.

I like to think this was just someone in Microsoft's acquisitions department getting so annoyed by LinkedIn spam that they bought the company just to turn it off.

Well, that's one way to get a popular social network to be built for Windows Phone.

"It seems you're writing a resume. Would you like to accept my invitation to connect on LinkedIn?" - Clippy ca. 2017

All-cash deal will see LinkedIn retain its distinct brand, independence, and CEO.
