This is what I do to my neighbor's desk in any open floor plan workspace.

And then this email's subject was all like "Reimagining our workspace" and its body started with "How we can all do more work by reducing and optimizing the desk space available to each one of us" and I was all like...

And yet people will still clamor for invites because hype. These guys have successfully out-Appled Samsung.
 
The OnePlus 2 does not have NFC, does not have Qi charging, and does not have Quick Charge 2.0 or something similar. This is your "2016 flagship killer."

I guess you won't be using Android Pay, Android Beam, wirelessly charge your phone, or quickly charge your phone, like every other 2015 or 2016 flagship.

Edit: I have confirmed all 3 with OnePlus.

News sites that turn off comments, unless they're someone reputable like the BBC, are quickly finding themselves on my blacklist.
 
Why you need comments
I swear The Verge turned off comments because they were tired of getting yelled at for screwing up posts like this.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/22/9013455/sony-android-concept-xperia-z3-software-preview

"The goal, says Sony, is to develop new software "from the ground up," meaning no Google Play Services or superfluous apps, just the core Google communications software and Sony's stack of custom apps like Camera, Music, and Xperia Lounge."

The second half of this sentence contradicts the first. You can't have Google apps without Google Play Services—they wouldn't work. Also releasing Android without Google Play Services would be in violation of the "anti-fragmentation clause" in their MADA contract and Google would pull their Google Play license.  

They don't even link to the actual Sony blog post so people can get the correct information. (it's here: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/07/22/launching-sonys-concept-for-android-initiative-in-sweden/ )

IF The Verge had comments turned on, this post would be getting ripped to shreds. Now they can misinform people in peace.

The Verge was worth a blacklist already.

I want "Share My Location" to be a system-wide API, which would make it dead simple for that data to be siloed off from apps. Then SMS and messaging apps wouldn't need location awareness permissions.
And the next feature stripped out of Google+? Location sharing.

I see GoreSat is doing its job very well.

This guy sums up a lot of reasons that explain why I see so many wonderful OS projects go nowhere.

Much therapetic snorting later, I am not going to say how many of these I have encountered in the wild, often in the single projects.

I just bought an item on BestBuy.com for $1.

I'm stuck between feeling dirty and laughing myself silly.

Went to see my friend play at Vans Warped Tour yesterday, and recorded a song.

It's true, we can't look away. Honestly, I would love it if Trump became the GOP nominee, because it would show the nation just how far they've fallen. Plus, he's easy fodder for a strong Dem nominee.
 
I have the power to make the next 16 months one of the most incredible times in our nation’s history, and not a single one of you can say you’re not at least a little bit curious to see how this wild ride shakes out. So just keep clicking every link that mentions my name and hitting play on every clip of my public appearances, and I promise you will not be disappointed.

"We are attempting to determine if any laws have been violated at this point. It would seem to the average person, there should be something prohibiting a person from attaching a weapon to a drone. At this point, we can't find anything that's been violated," Clinton Police Chief Todd Lawrie said.

A happy reminder of why we actually have laws in our society, and don't just leave it up to Your Town Here's police chief to decide if you're naughty or nice.

Story
Introduction
I'd like to fashion myself as a purveyor of fine things. I enjoy using the latest and greatest in technology. My standards for music are high, and include a decent interest among Christian Contemporary artists, Rock & Roll, and classical/instrumental music. I love to watch movies with a well-developed story and relate-able characters, even if the filming itself isn't the greatest. My reading tastes cover mostly fantasy and science-fiction, and within that spectrum stories that make me regret putting down or finishing the book, because I might be separated from well-written characters. I love to write, and hold myself to the same standards that I do my authors and movie writers. When I write in the physical realm, I enjoy writing with a fountain pen versus pencil or ballpoint.

Interests aside, I am currently a student pursuing my undergraduate degree in Computer Science, with a minor in Deaf Studies. I attend the University of Minnesota Duluth, in the beautiful port city of Duluth, MN —which certainly comes as a surprise. After school and work, I don't have much free time, but what I do have I devote much of to student government, games and stories, and writing.

My passion for technology, student government, my personal interests and maybe a funny image or two are the things you may see me post and comment on. Enjoy it or not, the choice is yours!

Excellent little restaurant just a half walk from Dupont Circle in DC. The staff was friendly and prompt with service. I had the Catfish, which was delicious. The decor and location belies a surprisingly pleasant experience.

This is like a classier Subway, with more options, fresh ingredients and salads being first class citizens alongside sandwiches. I had some trouble understanding the accents of the employees, and the restaurant is noisy enough for it to matter, but their service is excellent. Great quality for a good $ price.
