If the FCC would just rename their bill "Netflix Fair Usage Act" they could get some public support on their side

Has anyone had a custom google+ URL approved yet? Been a couple weeks now, beginning to believe the approval requests are sent to /dev/null

Hmm, weird. I never sent a request and Google recently sent me a custom URL thingy unasked. What are the criteria here?!

I understand that Google wants to have some control over what people use as their custom Google+ URL but the approval process is taking way too long.  Can't they speed it up a bit by noting that the custom URL I chose is the exact same word that is already used in 5 other accounts that are linked to my Google+ profile?  That content has already been approved so what is the hold up here?

Exactly.

I can't register http://google.com/+configurator even though I have the url http://profiles.google.com/configurator

Updated to ios7 over the weekend.  Overall it's a nice design and I'm pretty much universally happy with the changes. But it's simply not the "radical" change reported by certain news outlets.  Fundamentally it's still a home row of 4 apps with flipping pages of 20 apps.  Outside of the app experience this is the part of the UI you spend the majority of your time with

I think that the "radical" moniker is meant to apply to the theming, not to UX in general.

My girlfriend Emily is often baffled by my ability to deal with complex coding questions yet forgetting to think through simple everyday tasks like adding a card in a gag gift I ordered for my father so he knows who it's from. I usually laugh this off as confirmation bias but after a set of embarrassing incidents I'm beginning to think other wise. I'm starting to wonder if it's just an side effect of being a programmer.

As programmers the negative feedback we receive daily is pretty mild. A bug, report an assert dialog, etc ... None of this is terribly motivating to be right the first time around as we have ample time to correct our mistakes later. Many times we even code something and run it just to see if it works, if not eh ... try again.

I wonder if that thought process is bleeding into real life. Take action, if it works great, if not take corrective action (like calling my dad and saying "hah!").

Perhaps if the negative feedback I received was more motivating I'd be more thoughtful in real life. Say if my chair gave me a mild shock every time an assert dialog popped up ;)

This is so cute! I love how he hides his feet from her when she tries to bite them and he tries to use her as a pillow.

Gah, I'm only here at the moment. I'm looking to be elsewhere when my lease is up. England is the most likely target.

I really wish the toolbar had Jared+ instead of +Jared. It would provide an endless source of C++ and programming jokes

I think *username would have been more apt for those with C++ background.

Dropped my phone jogging to the bus at 8AM and shattered half the screen. I had just enough functionality left for me to google iPhone screen repair, found JCDR web page, set up an appointment for 1PM with just a few clicks. Walked in a few minutes early, staff worker asked if I was Jared and took my phone. An hour later I came back, phone was ready and I was out the door. Total time with broken phone was 6 hours. Staff was nice, service was speedy and price is competitive.
