Article makes good points but at the end it makes its recommendation apps to replace facebook and all I kept thinking is "or google plus"
Most of us have had Facebook accounts for the past few years, if not a decade. But time and bloat have turned once-beloved font of nostalgia into an onslaught of faux-sentimental sludge from strangers. So as Facebook stands poised to break itself into a bunch of different apps, we say to you: Screw it. It's time to start fresh.

49 but I should get a bonus point for looking at all 300 of those questions.
 
I got 4 out of 300.

If I hadn't been forced to play Magic the Gathering and Settlers of Catan (once, each, years ago) I may not be geeky at all!

I got 68 out of 300.

"Sounds like you’re a little geeky, but maybe got out of the game for a while. Time to catch up to the rest of us nerds. Maybe invite some friends over for some tabletop gaming?"

If they'd thrown in some MechWarrior questions I probably could have pushed that to the 70s. :)

I can't imagine what the UND Goalie Gothberg was thinking at that point.

Excellent. I wish the icon was bigger and more annoying. 
Google's new standalone Camera app is a sleek and powerful alternative to the stock Android camera. Turns out, it's also a soldier in the war against vertical videos. Try to shoot a portrait-framed vid, and you'll stare down the cold judgment of an icon telling you you're doing it wrong. You've been warned.

The accident it causes might be even louder. There is no way this could possibly go wrong. 

As +Blind Side notes - LRAD was designed to literally disorient combatants so they submit. It puts out 153db of sound concentrated on one thing. For reference, a Boing 747 engine chimes in at 140db and permanent hearing loss starts at around 130db So A: they're trying to disorient civilians while behind the wheel of speeding multi-ton death machines, and B: they're treating civilians as combatants, skipping over our normal traffic violation process and going right to physical assault. If this is real, its wildly irresponsible and amazingly dangerous.

Someone else asked What could his do to a baby's ears.

Orrrrr..... you could just not use the facebook app....
Reports are swarming in that folks will no longer be able to send messages through the base Facebook app, as Facebook will now push its standalone messenger app.

I loved Messenger, even enough to reinstall Facebook, until it didn't work with Swiftkey. FB versus my keyboard? Keyboard wins.

Introduction
I was born in Pennsylvania, grew up in Brooklyn and was transplanted to Saratoga County, NY over a decade ago. I'm proud of my Pennsylvanian roots. Childhood in Brooklyn made me tough and NYC made me a well rounded person. Life in Saratoga is wonderful.

The basic passions: My Son. My family. Politics and societal issues. I am a Christian. 


Hobbies:
  • My dogs
  • Hockey; Major, Minor and College
  • NCAA Wrestling , amateur freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling from time to time.
  • I'm a news junkie and follow politics rabidly.
  • Any new web tech toy that comes along.
  • +Android and +Google
  • Drupal and Wordpress.
  • Volkswagens
My teams are NY Rangers, NY Yankees, ADK Phantoms, CT Whale.  I follow U of Minnesota Wrestling & Lehigh U Wrestling. Union & RPI Hockey.

I stopped being a NY Jets fan the day they signed Vick.

I wear bow ties often and my dogs are preppy a-holes.  A Field English Springer Spaniel, a Jack Russell terrier and an Andalusian Hound that was rescued from Spain. 

Beyond the typical circles like friends, family, college buddies, etc I post a lot to the following circles I've made;
  • Albany NY
  • Wrestling (The real type, NCAA & FILA)
  • Tech
  • Hockey
  • Kappa Delta Phi and Kappa Delta Phi NAS
Let me know if you want to be added to one of those.  If you circle me, please drop a line and tell me why and what circle you would like to be added to!

People who inspire me 
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Honey Badger
  • Dan Gable
  • J Robinson
  • MLK Jr.
  • Mark Messier
  • Pat Lafontaine
Books I can read over and over 
  • Dune Series by Frank Herbert 
  • America: The Last Best Hope by Bill Bennett  
  • The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King
TV 
  • Doctor Who
  • Torchwood
  • American Horror Story
  • The Walking Dead
  • Rescue Me
  • Star Trek
  • Life on Mars
  • Kings
  • Lost
  • Jericho
  • Battlestar Galactica
I play a lot of Call of Duty. A LOT.

Favorite Quotations

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Latinos are Republican. They just don't know it yet. - Ronald Reagan

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes. - Ronald Reagan

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country. - JFK

I "own" a couple of G+ Communities which reflect my interests - Wrestling Community  / The New York Rangers Hockey Fans Community and the Order of the Crow lite Community which is for a small handful of Kappa Delta Phi brothers and NAS sisters.

I grew up in Brooklyn but moved to Upstate NY a decade ago. It's amazing what passes for a bagel outside of NYC. I went to Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee today while in the area and picked up two dozen b/c these things are the real deal. I'll make this place a must visit next time I'm in the area.

Not only did Dr. Jay Rugoff identify an issue with in minutes that other doctors misdiagnosed for weeks he also advised properly on what to do to get the situation rectified. Thank you Dr. Rugoff. You have a loyal patient in me.

Nosh was packed but the staff was fast. Food is very good. Very good but a little pricey. Check your bag on the way out, they screwed me on the kanish and didn't put it in the bag. I'm willing to give them a pass on forgetting on putting the kanish in the bag since they've only been open a week. As far as delis go in the capital region, Gershon's deli finally has some competition. I'll be going back for more. This place is good, even if they screwed me on the kanish. (i'm not letting go of that and would have given them a 3/3 if not for that)
