Month view is coming (back) to Google Calendar for Android

In February, we made lots of improvements to the Google Calendar app for Android based on your feedback (http://goo.gl/uzzbDd). Over the next few days, we're happy to be adding more of the updates you’ve asked for: 

● See even more events at a glance with Month view on phones.
● See the color of events when jumping to a date.
● Easily switch views now that they are listed in the navigation drawer.

You can download the app on Google Play: www.google.com/calendar/android

PS: We're working on bringing many improvements to the iPhone app as well. Thanks for the ongoing support and feedback.

Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

Please donate here:

I think I'm finally starting to get a decent grasp on PGP. Seriously should have figured this stuff out years ago.

"-bash: rename: command not found"

It is going to be something like this that pushes me over the edge. Yes I know that "mv" is used to rename files, but in this particular case, I needed to rename multiple files, and that is what the "rename" command is for.

Seriously, you should enable 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) on any account you care about and supports it. Especially if you have a smartphone.

I've had it enabled on my Google account for the last few months (prompted by heartbleed). No regrets.
 
Would you give up your password?

+Wall Street Journal reporter Christopher Mimms published one of his passwords to illustrate that there are other, much more secure ways to authenticate your accounts: http://online.wsj.com/articles/the-password-is-finally-dying-heres-mine-1405298376

And here's what happened after he published his passwordhttp://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2014/07/15/commentary-what-i-learned-and-what-you-should-know-after-i-published-my-twitter-password/

When will you be willing to give up your password and use other methods to log in securely?

You might be a geek when you find yourself despairing over the complete and utter lack of usable software for this cursed new OS. After being forced to switch from Linux to OSX.
I should be more specific and say that it seems like the software is available, it just isn't easy to find/install, and always feels like a hack job.
On a related note, to the OSX geeks out there, what 3rd party package manager(s)/repo(s) do you use? It seems like everything I go to install is saying that it is available from a different everything-is-available-here source.

Looking for a web browser that is keyboard driven. Requirements:
 1 - Graphical. I'm not looking for Lynx or something of the sort.
 2 - Linux. Probably a given considering the request, but figured I should be specific.
 3 - HTML5. Some sites I work in every day use HTML5.

I've tried dwb with little success, but I may just need to give it more time. A good Chrome extension may be what I'm looking for.

Suggestions?

Having a 27" monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution and not using a tiling window manager (i3) is just about killing me. I have all this space and most of it is wasted.
