I don't know where developers got the idea that Shaking your phone means frustration.

One time out of maybe 1000, hou deliberately shake the phone because you minimized candy crush and lost all your progress on a hard level. All the other times, it's just random movement of your hand as you are moving about or adjusting your body...

Then you have to dismiss a silly feedback dialog or read some trash about taking a break to relieve stress.

Why does +Google Now display different cards on my different devices? It completely destroys handoff.

"The Right to be forgotten"

Apparently, someone used the EU "right to be forgotten" law to request that google remove an email thread of them asking for help using svn.

I want to LOL, but I really don't know what to make of this. I'm inclined to think the person was not really embarrassed, but was merely experimenting with the law. 

I like to think that I won't personally feel so embarassed about all the newbie questions or problems I encountered in my journey with any piece of technology, so long as I can look at myself in the present and think I'm certainly much better than back then :)

Back in the days when I participated in the starting of the Subversion project, I found the mailing list archive we had really dysfunctional and hard to use, so I set up a separate archive for the benefit of everyone who wanted an alternative way to find Subversion related posts.

This is what +VMware  makes me go through in order to download a product I paid a not insignificant amount for.

Awesome, was beginning to wonder why +VMware  will allow such things happen to their customers.

We need better incentives for companies who store our data to keep it secure. 
When a criminal started lacing Tylenol capsules with cyanide in 1982, Johnson & Johnson quickly sprang into action to ensure consumer safety. It increased its internal production controls, recalled the capsules, offered an exchange for tablets, and within two months started using triple-seal tamper-resistant packaging. The company focused on fixing weak points in their supply chain so that users could be sure that no one had interfered with the p...

Why does TLS need to know what the Application Layer Protocol is? I need to read the standards and histories here, but it seems strange to me that RFC 7301 even exists. This seems like the equivalent of allowing TCP clients and servers to negotiate which application level protocol will be used over the resulting TCP connection.

Excellent paper about how we may be going about multimedia on the Internet wrongly, with our unjustified insistence of streaming:
