Facebook makes it super easy to wish someone an empty emotionless Happy Birthday. Now they need a way for the birthday person to Like or Comment "thanks" on all the wall posts at once. 

Allo is a really well designed app. It's great in fact. But it could be so much more :-(

"Using Cycle buttons is not recommended in accessible applications, because their behavior conflicts with accessibility best practices" - psssssh don't tell me how to live my life.

Never take for granted your ability to physically push a fart out. 

Back in October, I took a blood test to see if I was a suitable Kidney Donor for my Step Dad. A few weeks later I got a call saying I was indeed a match. It's kind of a mind blowing experience, and a rush of emotions. The following months full of tests and a couple trips to Vanderbilt. Everything looks great. Which is shocking if you've seen my diet and lack of exercise. With the support of my wife, and kids, family, and work colleagues I'll be giving a kidney up on January 7th. I'll be recovering for about a month, and becoming "normal" again may take up to a year. Keep us all in your thoughts and prayers over the next week or so. It's been kind of a wild ride. Here's to starting 2016 with a slightly differently functioning body, a healthier family, and a healthier future.

Android Folks: I've got a special build of an app specifically for one piece of hardware. I control the GMail accounts for these 20 pieces of hardware. And this build is only temporary, until we get old hardware out of the field. The question is in the Play Store should I set this special build up as a Beta and invite these gmail accounts to it OR should I set it up as a hardware specific build in the play store?
