"He said it was only his 'paranoia' that prevented him from sending over some 'deeply embarrassing musings' about sex that he had written earlier."

They're talking about me. Hello, ladies.

I've been having some alarming issues with Evernote, including corrupted notes. I wrote a blog post discussing them (and some of my broader concerns about the service) here:

Hey +Kenneth Barrett I once did a short Evernote customerservice chat awhile back. I hope they don't get rid of that

The New York Times did a piece on Lulu — the app that lets women review men on how date-able they are. I think it dropped the ball, so I wrote about it. 

http://jasonkincaid.net/2013/11/nyt-iskindaclueless/
Today Lulu makes its New York Times debut, page E1. Lulu lets women review guys. Specifically their date-worthiness, rated out of 10, with tags calling out attributes like #DudeCanCook and #Hygenic...

Listen up musicians: 

Check out +Philip Kaplan's  new service DistroKid, which lets musicians quickly get their music on iTunes/Spotify/Amazon/Google Play. Unlimited song uploads for $20/year, and you keep all the royalties. You can upload songs whenever you want (you don't need to package them as an album), and they show up in the stores in 2-4 hours. It looks great and is already getting rave reviews from people involved in this business.

http://distrokid.com/
What is DistroKid? DistroKid is a service for musicians that puts your music into online stores so that people can buy it. Why should I use DistroKid? All your music should be in stores. DistroKid is the only service that lets you upload unlimited music to stores for one low price.

JK Rowling is writing a new film series set in the Harry Potter universe. 

I am pretty sure I'm dreaming right now. Hello dream people.

Warner Bros. and "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling are going to try to catch lightning in a bottle again.

I hope & trust the lady still has a lot of wonderful stories in her, otherwise it will quickly be seen as a money making scheme off the HP success

If you have an Android device, check out Timely Alarm Clock. It's one of the nicest-looking apps I've seen (including iOS) and is getting rave reviews (the alarm gets less piercing when you pick up the device — cool!). Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.bitspin.timely

As someone who has believed in Android's future for a long time, it's exciting to see the platform mature and shrug off the less polished bits of its heritage. Looking forward to seeing what's next!

(via http://www.androiduipatterns.com/ , which is itself a sign of Android's maturation)

Two days ago I wrote about the quality and data-loss issues I've had with Evernote. The response has been staggering, with hundreds of comments between my post ( http://jasonkincaid.net/2014/01/evernote-the-bug-ridden-elephant/ ) and Hacker News ( https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7009995 ).

Now Evernote CEO Phil Libin has written a response on the Evernote Blog:

Yeah data portability is always a concern +Markus Wolff. Google Takeout goes a long way towards addressing that. Interestingly, exporting my data from Evernote was far from easy. While I was able to export everything neither format nor organizational structure was preserved. Very inconvenient when you have tens of thousands of notes and hundreds of attachments, etc.

Android founder Andy Rubin's next thing: Google Robots.

The company has acquired seven companies in hopes of automating electronics assembly and maybe even taking on Amazon in retail delivery.

Sometimes I worry we're doing technology all wrong, and then I see stuff like this. Who knew it was possible to make such an incredible song even better?

It seemed to be the same song listening.
The video was interesting under a minute.
Did I miss anything not staring at it after the first few scenes?

The most recent leaked NSA slide shows how it infiltrates Google security. 

A part of me can rationalize why the NSA tries to breach every security measure it can (surely others are attempting the same). But the smiley face in this slide — mocking both user privacy and the integrity of one of America's greatest companies — is disgusting.

Behold my chocolate-covered frozen banana, awarded in recognition of superior Arrested Development Bingo skills.

Victory never tasted so good (had to let it thaw a bit though).
