+Google Play Movies And TV​, what is the point of downloaded movies if I can't watch without a network connection? This was recently broken.

It was very bizarre. We were sitting in my driveway, getting an error starting a downloaded movie: "network error". I turned on Wi-Fi (could reach the house Wi-Fi still) and it started playing. The next movie on the road trip started fine, but after that, nothing would play, network error.

This does seem like a cool idea.

HeroX, a for-profit spin off of XPRIZE, is trying to do for innovation competitions what Kickstarter did for crowdfunding.
X Prize's new spinoff, HeroX, will allow any individual or organization to set up their own prize competitions online.

+Dwolla​​ is awesome, because...

"The idea of being able to pay ... without [them] receiving any sort of sensitive financial information"

"reducing payment and money transfer wait times from the usual 24- to 48-hours, to a transfer that happens nearly instantly"

"the cost that comes with trying to process a paper check, ... on average, it’s like seven bucks, so if we can get that cost down to $0.25 through a payment mechanism that doesn’t require you to protect financial information – why wouldn’t you?"
A new generation of payment technologies could help transform the federal government's image while simultaneously protecting sensitive consumer data.<br /><br />

Deliberately making it difficult to stop doing business with you is not a good business model, +SiriusXM​.  It makes people want to complain about you to their social networks, while still going ahead and cancelling their subscriptions.

Yeah, that's definitely a turn off.  I was considering actually paying for that after my trial expired - between this and their shady marketing/harassment I've seen them do, I'm considering against it.  Shady businesses are going to be shady.

Very interesting perspective on addiction, the real driver, and how to help.
h/t +Emlyn O'Regan
 
"The results of all this are now in. An independent study by the British Journal of Criminology found that since total decriminalization, addiction has fallen, and injecting drug use is down by 50 percent. I'll repeat that: injecting drug use is down by 50 percent. Decriminalization has been such a manifest success that very few people in Portugal want to go back to the old system. The main campaigner against the decriminalization back in 2000 was Joao Figueira, the country's top drug cop. He offered all the dire warnings that we would expect from the Daily Mail or Fox News. But when we sat together in Lisbon, he told me that everything he predicted had not come to pass -- and he now hopes the whole world will follow Portugal's example."
New evidence about addiction isn't just a challenge to us politically. It doesn't just force us to change our minds. It forces us to change our hearts....

Being on the mailing list of Louis C.K. alone is entertaining:

"Dear friend,

Hi.  It's Louis CK here to make sure everyone knows that my show show tomorrow at Madison Square Garden has been canceled.  All ticket holders will automatically get a refund.  I am really sorry about this and I am surprised to learn as I write this that there is only one L in the word canceled.  I'll have to take my phone's word for it.  But it doesn't look right to me.

In any case, there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City.  They are calling this storm "historic" which.... Well I didn't know you could call a thing historic if it hasn't happened yet.  But I'm not one to defy future historic events.  And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show.  I think it's clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel.  Besides, if you've ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don't want to even know what the deposit is on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.

So.  No show.  I will be on Letterman tonight, though.  So you can yell boo right at my stupid and very handsome face on your tv screen or on your paper towel or your watch or whatever you view Letterman on.

Also I will be contacting you very soon about my new standup special which will be historically available only on my website louisck.net very soon.

I really want to thank everyone who came to the shows at MSG.  It was an incredible experience.  The audiences were great.  And the crew at MSG is classy and professional.

Okay.  That's it.  I have to do some laundry now.

Take care of yourself and don't be a jerk to people.

Louis CK."

I don't feed trolls. I burn them.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.

This clinic has welcoming offices and friendly, helpful staff. We generally get right into a room for appointments, and their pediatrics staff is amazing.

I have always been very satisfied with my service at Luther Hopkins Honda, and my latest visit is no exception. They do good work, they're friendly, and don't push unnecessary services.

Every time I have used or attempted to use their online service to send money, it is at least a 30-60 minute ordeal or not being to log in with the password I know is correct, resetting the password and the new password still not allowing me to login, finally getting through to the point where you submit a transfer, and being kicked back to the login prompt. If you want to have an extremly maddening experience, by all means, use Moneygram. Moneygram should just remove their horrendous attempt at an online service. They mujst make all oftheir money from phone and in-store transfers, because they seem to do everything in their power to prevent you from actually sending money onilne.

The veterinarians and technicians at CVVC are awesome. They clearly love animals, love what they do, and provide the best care.
