For real, +UPS? You expect me to drive 30 minutes (one-way) before 1/7 to pick up a gift/package that you won't deliver because someone left off our apartment number? We live in a duplex; either 1 or 2 would have worked. And you sent a postcard in the mail to tell us this? that just now got delivered?

No, I don't think so. We'll do without whatever it is, thank you, and you can — instead of attempting an actual delivery — ship it all the way back to the relevant e-commerce site.

W2G logistics!

within the next few hours, we need 300 signatures on this petition to reach 100k.

If the government needs a warrant to tap your phone, let's make sure they also need a warrant to read your email and cloud docs!

Has anyone seen FB respond to this damning analysis of what you can find out about people you have no connection to via Graph Search?

That and the configuration change where you cannot hide from search will lead me to delete my FB account soon (again). sigh.

Berkeley and Bay-Area peeps!

I'll be speaking at Google HQ on 11/11 (non-public) and then at the UC Berkeley I School on 11/12. Please come! woo!

I've been having a problem where my macbook acts like it's waking from a hard sleep (as if the battery run down) after waking up, despite having been plugged into power. Looking at the Console, some strange bluetooth events always happen at this time too... so, open Bluetooth prefs, disabled everything I can possibly click on and it seems to not happen now.
