Apple to raisin to me is more like it, but whatever, I made a comment, it's you who won't let it go, public post, public comment

Isn't this what I am supposed to do? And you are on me about it? Cause it doesn't fit "YOUR" paradigm? 

Kettle and pot?

Comparing @WhatsApp with @Twitter, is like searching Penguins in the North Pole.

When Google fails, embrace the deep web. New Media specialist Henk van Ess shows you the daily nuts and bolts of his research techniques. Just 35% of his sources are from Google, the rest is deep web. The examples in this presentation are all about validating or debunking stories of asylum searchers. Keynote for the European Asylum Support Office in Valettta, Malta, March 26, 2014 by Henk van Ess

A Google Plus bio with:

"Opinions are my own"

should probably be changed into:

"My opinions are that of my employer, not mine"

Hi,

I could use some feedback on the first attempt for a Google Glass app.

This app will do a very simple thing: it will play a live feed of my favorite tech show (twit.tv)
 
"OK, glass"->"Start Radio" will start live feed.
"OK, glass"->"Stop Radio" will stop live feed.
"OK, glass"->"Radio Controller" will display start and stop menu.
 
Google Glass should dim, the audio should continue to play.
 
Can you test it and tell me if it works on your device? This is just a prototype.

The 15Kb APK can be downloaded here:
