Since the new Beats app will be on Android, too -- Apple's first Android app -- I wonder if Trent will lead the Beats team to create an idiomatic UI for the platform, or if it'll be a carbon copy of the iOS app?
Nine Inch Nails frontman, Oscar-winning soundtrack composer, and new Apple employee Trent Reznor appears to be no mere figurehead over in Cuptertino. According to a new report from The New York...

Google I/O Invitation Stages of Grief

Stages:
1. Maybe my invite is not sent yet
2. Screw that, the thing is rigged with all the GDE, ions, press, students, friends of google , developer challenge winners and some google algorithm that doesn't like me.
3. Come on google, give me an invite. I'll write another tips of the day series, blog more and help my local community more...
4. What's the point, I never went to i/o anyway, I'm miserable
5. Ok no problem, I'll live. I'll watch the livestream beer in hand with my colleagues!

It is Tuesday Googlababblingbrooks!

What on Earth will the day hold in store?

I might be standing at the bus stop and who should pull up but Will.I.Am!

"Hey Hazel! Let's have a day at your Scar-bo-Ro! Those students can look after themselves for one day. This day out will be mega-dope!"

I'll be tempted but then I'll see that Cheryl Cole is all folded up in the back seat. And I'm not hanging out with that skank. Will knows how I feel about her so off he drives.

Sigh. Things like this always happen to me on Tuesday's. Bloody Cheryl. Tut. She spoils everything.

Have an awesome day everyone!

Protip: Always keep the lid on a thermos of Soylent extra tight.

If you forget it in your backpack for a day or two, and it leaks, that backpack and whatever room it occupies will smell like the cheese that might come from a dairy farm in Hell.

Google Keep just took another leap forward in usefulness today. Still needs undo support before I'll really feel like I can trust it though. (You're only ever one "select all, then hit a single letter key" away from losing an entire note!)
 
Get organized with new labels in #GoogleKeep. Add labels like "Travel", "To Do" or "Inspiration" to your notes for easy searching later. http://goo.gl/8cYyOe

Another "oh my god I'm getting old" moment I'd like to share: LCD Soundsystem's first record came out 10 years ago.

You're welcome.

I love Rhimes's take on this. (For whatever my perspective is worth as a straight middle-class white dude.)
 
"I really hate the word 'diversity,' it suggests something…other. As if it is something…special. Or rare," Rhimes said. "As if there is something unusual about telling stories involving women and people of color and LGBTQ characters on TV."

"I have a different word: NORMALIZING. I’m normalizing TV."
Shonda Rhimes proved long ago that she is a force to reckon with. The growing influence she has had in television has not gone unrecognized and has resulted in a major boost for ABC’s Thursday night network ratings. However, more importantl...

I sure did read the article:

"I really hate the word 'diversity,' it suggests something…other. As if it is something…special. Or rare,"

I don't think diversity suggests that at all, hence my conclusion she's redefining the world.

So which is it, +Philips​? Is there an update or not?

Overall I like my new #hue setup, but the Android app still has interaction design and UI work left to be done. (A big +1 for the widget, though -- very useful.)

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.

Despite the somewhat small size, they have yet to let me down with their selection, and the service is always super friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended.

A whole lot of "meh". Selection is possible for their size, prices aren't very good but I've seen worse. Staff is competent and quick, and friendly enough, but service is never really great, either. If it's the only place within winter walking distance, like it is for me, it could be a lot worse. If your driving, you probably want to go elsewhere.
