I stumbled upon this when looking into meh.com. Only 2k views? How were these not more popular?

More Comcast fun.

I returned their modem today because I didn't want to rent it. She noticed the one I bought didn't have voice so she had to unbundle my plan. But so by returning their modem (10 dollars a month) my bill stayed the same because I lose my discount. She tried to explain it was like buying a happy meal and together it was cheaper. She couldn't explain why getting less wouldn't be cheaper. So now I pay the same amount for less. Fun!

This is what happens when an engineer tries to make holiday cards by hand.

Always nice to see people going above and beyond. I'm making a donation to help their cause, will you? No matter what your view is on the political mess in war torn countries like Afghanistan, animals being in need of rescue are entirely humanity's fault and I support all of the great agencies who try to right the wrongs.

Pen Farthing's nonprofit group has reunited animals with nearly 700 service members from eight countries.

2 days of furniture shopping and all I got was this little buddha.

I also learned furniture stores are a little like car lots. Aggressive sales people. Haggling required. Sticker prices are meaningless. I have come to believe this is why people like Ikea. It might be a trek to shop it, but at least it is simple.

Go seahawks!

My holiday experiment to learn how to crochet has gone pretty well but I think I need to jump back into the code. So many things to build on Hangouts!

If I promise to root for the seahawks tomorrow, will you make hangout messages available to moto assist? are you the person with that power?

New stuff!
 
Hangouts: now smarter, faster, and a lot more fun

If you’re like me, you want to stay connected with friends and family without technology getting in the way. Hangouts lets you focus on the people you love talking to, so your conversations feel as in-the-moment and natural as they do in real life.

Today we’re updating the Hangouts app for Android to make it easier to express yourself, and have more fun along the way:
    - Like the saying goes, a sticker is worth a thousand words. From penguins to pirates, koalas to cats, 16 new sticker packs (and more to come!) have tons of ways to say what’s on your mind.
    - Give your video calls some extra flair with video filters including sepia, vignette, black & white, and more. Just swipe during a video call to try these new styles. 

We’re also making it easier to start conversations with friends and family:
    - Confirm your phone number so your friends who already have your digits can more easily find and message you in Hangouts.
    - Know when your friends are ready to chat right now with “last seen” timestamps, so you never have to type, “You there?”

Hangouts is also introducing the start of something new -- smart suggestions right in your conversations:
    - When you’re trying to meet up with friends in real life and someone asks, “Where are you?”, Hangouts can now understand what you need and offer to help.  You’ll see a one-tap option to share your location right in the conversation, without you needing to hunt around in a map, drop a pin and send your position. 

Try all the new features by updating the Hangouts app on your Android device  (http://goo.gl/v7FTL - rolling out to the Play Store over the next few hours). Note that “last seen” timestamps will roll out in waves over the next few weeks, so you may not see this feature for all your contacts right away. Today’s updates will also be available on the Hangouts iOS app soon. 

P.S. We’ve added a few other surprises to this Hangouts update, but we’ll let you find them on your own. Woot!

The lack of Android character stickers makes me very sad, and a little confused.

Dear tech bloggers;

A great way to let your readers know you are phoning in is to use three year old screenshots of the software you are writing about.

Sincerely yours,
Not Impressed
