+Google​, you fought to bring us 💩 ( http://goo.gl/1QQrdB ), but now you wuss out on the bird? 😞😒😕

You know you're screwing up when Microsoft is taking more risks (if you can call it that) than you.

In other words. A very small minority is destroying the whole mobile gaming scene for the rest of us by enabling gaming companies to flood the market with despicable cash-cheat games with real money to in-game money IAPs.
I really wish this 0.23% of players would stop supporting that rotten business model...

People, please buy extra levels, expansions, paid upgrades, additional features for the games you like & don't offer cash cheating. We can vote with our money. Give it to companies deserving it.

+Jens Knutson Sounds exciting. Make those apps great because I'm curious to see what innovations to the retail store experience mobile apps could bring. Seems like only Apple has done anything at all in this area with their EasyPay thingee.

I still don't understand how anyone can be against the Oxford comma.
 
Perfect examples of why I'm a big proponent of the Oxford comma (always a controversial topic among writers, editors, and other language nerds).

Tired of typing constant names and values twice (name = THIS_IS_MY_CONSTANT, value = this_is_my_constant)?

There's a shortcut for that in Studio! Put caret in word you want to change case for and CMD+SHIFT+U.

Of course, if I were writing a wish list, I really think Google should bring back the "social playlist," a la the Nexus Q.

Damn right.

My perception is that Android has become more buggy since it was put in the same group as Chrome, which has always been feature-rich, but very buggy.. However, that may just be confirmation bias of what I feared would happen.

The staff has always been very friendly and quick, and it's a lot cleaner and better organized than most of the convenience stores in the area. It's a mostly unremarkable gas station/convenience store, and their selection of certain convenience items, like basic cleaning supplies or toiletries, is somewhat limited, but these are minor issues. As an urban convenience store, they serve their purpose well. Bonus: they accept Google Wallet & Apple Pay! How cool is that?

A whole lot of "meh". The selection is passable for their size. Prices aren't very good, though I've seen worse. Staff is competent and quick, and friendly enough, but service is rarely great. All around, the place is better than nothing, but it seems like the owners have decided to firmly rest on the advantage of their location and being the local "default" liquor store, instead of trying to do anything to make their shop a destination. If it's the only place within winter walking distance, like it is for me, it could be a lot worse. If you're driving, you probably want to go elsewhere.

Best donuts in town. As some have mentioned, the donuts tend to be a lot more cake-y and heavy than usual, but I think it really works. Besides the great variety of original and inventive flavors, the staff is quick and helpful, and the retro, glam girl atmosphere of the shop is really fun. They're more expensive than Dunkin Donuts or the crap you get from the gas station, but it's totally worth it.

If you're into cocktails, this might be the single best liquor store in the Twin Cities. South Lyndale has an incredible variety of whisky, gin, bitters, and liqueurs, better than any I've seen in the metro. On top of that, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. Plus, if you've got friends that are only into wine or beer, they've got a great selection of those, too. I only wish it was closer to my place!

FAR preferred over the tiny screens at most AMC theaters. This place has much more comfortable seating, bigger screens, and all for the same price or less than similar sized competition.

Brilliant date spot. The first several rows of seats are all loveseats with tables next to them, where you can set your drink. I don't know of anywhere else in the Twin Cities where you can go to see a movie on a huge screen, while cuddled up with your sweetheart on a couch, holding a big, tasty margarita. If that's not a recipe for a great evening, I don't know what is.

Service is decent at this location, but not great. A lot of the staff are a little pokey (though I could never blame any big box retail chain checkout clerk for lacking motivation). It gets terribly crowded at times, & the selection is sometimes a little thin compared to the regular stores, but having a Target downtown is *really* helpful for those of us who don't live in the suburbs.
