Here's only a very tame example of how bad the rain has been here in Houston. Five minutes before this video, I was on a side street that was almost clear of water. By the time the traffic light changed to green, the water has become so deep that I pulled into some homeowners driveway, only to realize I'd be stuck for a long time (all night). I'm surprised my car made it through that deep water. I know I barely made it off of that road and back to the interstate. It was like this for 90 minutes of driving. This was the maximum speed I could manage before I could feel the car start to float and that was where the rain was light and water level at a minimum. Most places were far worse along here.

Like I said, this is a very tame example.

This is what Google Hangouts looks like on my 10" Sony tablet. It looks equally crappy on every other large Android tablet. +Google+​, why cannot Hangouts, which previously had a tablet friendly(-ish) version, offer a UI that takes advantage of the larger space available on tablets?

On my iPad mini, Hangouts looks far better, making use of the extra display space that's available. However, Hangouts is so unbelievably slow to open on the iPad, taking a full 12-20 seconds before I can interact with it, it is effectively useless to me.

+Google+​, would you rather we not use Hangouts? I'm being given very few reasons to want to at this point.

The thing that made Blackberry and even Apple so good, is they focus on a few products and make them better. You can't do that with products all over the place. Samsung makes everything and isn't amazing at any single one thing. Google has a lot on its plate as well.
They force so much product and ignore software and the user experience

The S6 Edge is surprisingly nice. It looks and feels great, it's fast, the camera is impressive, and it has that I really like using this quality that so many manufacturers can't accomplish with their devices. A bigger battery would be very welcomed, but so far it has made it through the day with 20-30% to spare.

My business partner has the S6 (not edge) and loves it. She came from a Nexus 5 (she hated it)...

You might want to remove any payment information and change passwords. 
Fraudsters have figured out how to break into Starbucks accounts and drain your bank account or credit card. Customers tell CNNMoney they're furious Starbucks isn't taking this more seriously.

It looks like I will finally be giving up the Droid Turbo. Even though I'm looking forward to using the S6 Edge as my work phone, the Turbo has been excellent, and I wonder if I've made a mistake in switching. The phone has yet to truly fail me, though I have lost it a few times, and the battery life has been incredible over the last seven months. They really got this one right and I hope they repeat with the next version.

I have to get new tires, at least for the rear on the staggered M setup on my car, since the left rear has been going flat inexplicably. Well, I used the air pump a few times by plugging it in up front in the cabin, only to have JUST found that there is a power outlet in the damned trunk! Finally +BMW​...its about time. It's also past time that I noticed it was there in this one!

If the advertising being shown wasn't so incredibly intrusive then ad blockers wouldn't be so popular. Sorry +The Next Web​​ your author is wrong on this one.

It's telling that the only people I read who seem to dislike ad blockers are people who make money from advertising.

Maybe consider that your advertisements are annoying. Most people would not bother blocking something that is not bothersome. Make those ads a bit less intrusive and fewer would try to eliminate them...and you could make money. I'm guessing you don't get paid as much for the less annoying advertising though.

I'll continue "being a snob" for now.


As an editor, I feel resentful of people who enjoy my work but proudly run an ablocker to starve my content of revenue. Now the Financial Times reports that European mobile networks ...

Haha. Adblockers are immoral, but it's funny that now only after Google is threatened by them in Europe that the media speaks up. Shills.

+Netflix​**​, I'm wondering...What is it that makes all of these movies "like" one another?

I already believe I know the answer, but are you willing to say? I doubt it so I'll continue.

Would not psychological thrillers and dramas be more like other psychological thrillers and dramas than anything else? Would not family dramas be associated with other family dramas?

Actually, why is it that the only movies that are like any movie that has a black lead or main character, also have black leads or main characters...or, more accurately, only have entirely black casts?

I clicked on every movie I saw, for ten minutes of scrolling around, that showed a black face on the front cover. For every single one that I clicked on, I looked at the supposedly like movies to see what I found, and on each and every one of them, not a single movie with anyone other than a black actor or actress showed up.

Are black characters in film so different than characters of any other race that they cannot be similarly categorized according to subject matter instead of race?

+Jason N. Miller I've asked myself the same question. I want to see a good action movie. (substitute drama, romance, documentary, history, thriller for the word action in the previous sentence.) I don't care what race the leading character is or any of the characters. I want to see a good movie/story. It makes me angry when Hollyweird typecasts races.

I like most of the Will Smith movies for exactly this reason. He is not playing a Black man. He is not playing a white man. He is playing a human being.

I would like to find the person(s) who glamorizes being a gang member and law breaking citizen, by writing and producing those types of movies. I just want to smack them.

I guess rant is over. I just want to say. I am with you.

I'm back to using an iPad, at least for a little while, as it was my last minute "new toy" purchase for April. +Google+ is so much nicer and smoother on the iPad that is comparatively annoying on the Android tablets.

As fast as my Sony tablet is, the super slow loading of posts, often never loading images, stuttering scrolling, the lack of smooth slide out menus, oddly setup drop down menus, and other little bits just make it a bad experience. Why is it so slow on Android?!

Google offers far better applications for the iPad than for their own operating system. On this iPad Mini 3, all of the Google apps are better.

This is why Apple products sell so well. Everyone else helps them to be better. It's good business.

It isn't really a hardware issue though. It is a software problem.
