Wow that sucks for HTC One users. Good thing you guys got Galaxy S4s +Sam Shih +Jonathan Rockway
'Compatibility' isn't always a guarantee of the best experience pasadenabill posted in the forums with a question: I bought the HTC One Google Play Edition because I wanted an unlocked phone for when I travel overseas. I am a longtime T-Mobile subscriber and after getting the GPE I immediately noticed that it would not connect to the 4G network very reliably. Thinking this...

Yes, just like the spec sheet says.  How hard is it to read the fine print and then read the Wikipedia page for the carrier you intend to use, and then make sure the supported bands overlap 1:1?  GEEZ GUYS.

Finally someone is willing to speak truth to power about the malignant force that is destroying our country: motherhood.

Hey it's Nirvana! http://youtu.be/kosjNy-lS9A  Well, it's actually just more solicitations for votes for LERN, but paired with Nirvana. http://www.scattergoodfoundation.org/innovideas/lived-experience-research-network.  I don't know why it "chose" +Ruby Ostrow as the cover photo, but I assume it's because she's secretly a baby rights activist.

+The New York Times 
"His books are stuffed with English-language brand names like Chanel and Gucci and choice phrases. "

Are "Chanel" and "Gucci" English language? If so I'm going to start pronouncing them as "channel" and "gucky".
A Chinese book and film franchise by Guo Jingming has become a lightning rod for this nation's evolving view of its growing youth culture.

+Meg Ostrow sent me this. I'd just like to point out that I spent my entire 7 weeks paid paternity leave taking care of +Ruby Ostrow, and changing diapers was and is a regular activity.

That said I'm not sure if I really consider it an abuse to use paternity leave for other activities. Regardless of whether you change diapers or not, there is a cost to being a parent in terms of both time and money. This is just one form of compensation to reduce that cost.

A study finds few male university professors go on paternity leave, and many of those who use it abuse it

This blog is hilarious. A father takes a picture of his son crying, then writes the reason he's crying in the caption.

Absolutely wonderful.
