Cool new technology: X-AR Exoskeleton Robotic Arm!

Not just cool but life changing new technology , super excited.

The Story:
My name is Zach and I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I was beginning to lose the strength in my arms and daily tasks such as eating, drinking, brushing my teeth, and turning on a light switch took everything I had. For 2 years I have been talking to the CEO of Talem Technologies the makers of the X-Ar Exoskeleton to see if it would help me. He said that he would have the X-Ar at an ergonomics convention just a few hours away from where I live and that I was welcome to try them. 

Everyone at the Talem booth was unsure if the X-Ar would even work for me but I just had this feeling so I put the X-Ar on and now here I am today. Before this equipment was only used in factories but now I am the very first person in the world to have them mounted on a wheelchair to use for daily living. I want to share this equipment with other people who could benefit from the X-Ar. Just the thought of getting to move your and just simply brush your teeth or turn on that light switch means everything. I want others to get the same joy I get using the X-Ar.

Original story by +Mandy Len Catron on NY Times:

"More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory. Last summer, I applied his technique in my own life, which is how I found myself standing on a bridge at midnight, staring into a man’s eyes for exactly four minutes.

My Christmas Habit

1) Got an idea of a Christmas Themed App
2) Start working it too late on December
3) Sleepless nights
4) Run out of time , have to submit a little buggy version to App Store.
5) Make bug fixes for next Christmas.

Next time I shall start working Christmas App on summer time.

Here is one classic Finnish Christmas song for you

JONY IVE: This Is The Most Important Thing I Learned From Steve Jobs

This sounds simplistic, but it still shocks me how few people really practice this. And it's a struggle to practice, but it's this issue of focus. Steve was the most remarkably focused person I've ever met in my life. 

And the thing with focus is, it's not this thing you aspire to, or you decide on Monday, 'You know, I'm going to be focused.' It is a every minute, 'Why are we talking about this? This is what we're working on.' You can achieve so much when you truly focus.

And one of the things Steve would say — because I think he was concerned that I wasn't, heh, — he would say, 'How many things have you said no to?' And I would have these sacrificial things, because I wanted to be very honest about it, so I said no to this, and no to that, but he knew that I wasn't vaguely interested in doing those things anyway, so there was no real sacrifice. 

What focus means is saying no to something with every bone in your body think is a phenomenal idea, and you wake up thinking about it, but you end up saying no to it because you're focusing on something else.

Does anybody actually enjoy life?

Beautiful story and answer on Quora by Mark Hodak

About 70 years ago, two little French kids found themselves under a table looking up at a German soldier who was asking the curly headed child, "Sprechen Sie Deutsch?"  He asked this because that child had just told the other, based on what the soldier was saying a minute ago, that the soldier was thirsty and wanted some water.  This child knew what the soldier was saying because, unlike the other child under the table, he spoke Yiddish.  This child knew Yiddish because that's what European Jews spoke at home back in the day.

In other words, this soldier was asking that French child if he was Jewish by asking him if he knew German.  And when that little kid slowly shook his head no, the soldier must have figured he was lying, and that this child was what he and his fellow soldiers were looking for in that apartment building that morning.

So maybe the soldier was tired.  Or maybe he was lazy, or negligent.  Perhaps he was mad at his superior, and didn't feel like giving him another notch in his unit's belt.  Or maybe this was the soldier's moment of compassion.  We will never know why he simply shook his head and walked away that morning, leaving those petrified children behind to live another day.  But, unlike Anne Frank and millions of other children in hiding during the war, and the families who hid them (e.g., the other kid and his family), these two children did make it.

Fifteen years later, the curly headed kid was grown up and had a child of his own.  That was me.  I'll tell you one of the salient memories of my upbringing:  No matter what trouble I caused my dad, no matter what I pulled on him (and I cringe when I think back on all the shit I pulled, especially as a teenager), no matter how much I complained about school or friends or spending my weekends cleaning up the house and fixing up the yard as if I were a victim of forced labor, he always reacted the same way--he laughed.  It wasn't mocking laughter or sardonic laughter.  It was a happy laugh, as if I was really being funny.  It pissed me off, but that only got him to laugh harder.

It wasn't until I was almost in college that I even knew what a Holocaust survivor was, and that my dad was one of them.  Because he was so young at the time--eight years old when France was liberated--he is now one of the last remaining survivors with any memory of the Nazi occupation.  

My dad doesn't always laugh or even smile.  He has gone through the same ups and downs as anyone.  He was especially hard hit by the loss of my mom--his wife of 47 years. But the look on his face here is his default countenance, a hint of a smile, as if the slightest thing could send him into laughter.

I now realize that my dad was laughing because he could, because all the little shit that we think is important or crucial or oh-my-god-now-what is small potatoes compared to the wonderful opportunity to fret about it.  The unwitting gift of that German soldier was not just a life, but an appreciation of what life enables us to experience--the good and the bad.

My dad truly enjoys his life.

And that life, and appreciation, was a gift to his generations, too.  When my kids came along, I found myself doing the same thing--laughing as much when they were peeved as when they were cheery.  At first, it was probably the unconscious mimicry of behavior modeled by my dad.  But when I thought about why it seemed so natural for me to laugh off their occasional tantrums as easily as I rejoiced in their cheer, I realized that it was precisely because my kids were capable of frustration, and joy, and the full spectrum of childhood experiences, reactions, and emotions.  They were fully alive, and that made me so happy I literally could not contain myself.

I don't know how far this gets passed down.  I hope my kids enjoy their lives; they seem to, so far.  I don't think I can make them or anyone happy, even myself.  I wish I could tell you how to be happy.  Maybe it's a realization.  Maybe it's a choice.  Maybe it's how we're wired.  Maybe it's a close call, where you are staring death in the face and it chooses for mysterious reasons to shrug and walk away, that gets you to permanently see things in another light.  I don't have the answer to that. But I can answer your question:  Yes, I actually enjoy life.

Sometimes it takes a close call to make you realize how precious everyday, ordinary life with all its frustrations really is. Beautifully written. Thanks for sharing.

Google Play want to get rid of Indie developers?

Developers and companies are being destroyed by an automatic policy system that is currently in place. Sounds scary? It is!

Text from the Google Mobile App Developer Partner Panel Suggestion box tells me feelings too.

Remove the fear factor

Developing Android applications has been an amazing journey for us so far but there is always a dark cloud above our heads, the constant fear that we might be doing something wrong without even knowing it and some day Google scans our entire account, finds some apps that are not compliant and completely removes all of our work.
 
This has got to stop.
 
There must be a way to officially validate our apps. I know a manual review process is out of the question for Google so I think a public "app validation tool" would be viable. Google has the processing power to do this so I do not see why such a tool does not exist.
 
There is no reason to keep the current application validation algorithms completely private and hidden away from developers. If we do something wrong we should be fairly warned - before the "3 strikes in 2 seconds, you're out" scenario.
 
I think I speak for all Android developers when I say we need transparency and a way to mend our mistakes before the dreaded "Account Suspended" e-mail.
 
Thank you.
 
Sometimes I question why I spend time contributing to an ecosystem that obviously don't care about the developers that create content for it.

What other explanation could there be for the recent wave of reddit posts/articles about developers having apps suspended, without receiving a real explanation or any chance to rectify.

Most recently it hit phandroid, who have written a quite good article on the issue. You can read it here: http://phandroid.com/2015/01/04/play-store-developer-policies/

To sum up the general issue, app gets suspended and all the developer gets is some vague email that one or more things may or may not violate one or more clauses of the developer distribution agreement. No information on exactly what the issue is.
The developer attempts to guess what the issue is and wants to release a new version that hopefully complies. Except, that's not possible since the app is suspended.
Requests to reinstate the app are denied with canned responses.

The only possibility left is to release it as a completely new app, and lose all your downloads and reviews.

Could Google be shitting any more on these developers?

I'm sure phandroid is going to get their issue resolved. After all, they have thousands of readers - too much bad publicity.

The rest of us are fucked tho.

I'm glad play store isn't my source of income.

New EU Ecommerce VAT Rule Changes in 2015

Do you sell electronically supplied services, such as online training, music and film downloads, software? Then YES … PLEASE READ ON..

If you supply any of the above, the new rules change the country of taxation from the country where you, the supplier is established, to where the customer is established.

Rather than charge your own, local VAT rate, you will have to apply the local VAT rate in any of the 28 European countries where your customer is located

Do you know a site that shows all the VAT rates +Visnja Zeljeznjak  and is also updated when VAT rates have changed. REST API would be even better :) If no, I have to build one. Still have one web subscription service running to which I need to create some automation.
