As a Christian apologist who knows that "don't project morality" is a projection of a moral claim and, therefore, a front-end self-refuting statement to a self-refuting idea, I figured it's a great idea to use that self-refuting claim against the abortion positions of the Clintons.

So I take it d.android.com is simply a shortcut to developer.android.com? Any particular reason for this?

Those who thought there was no Easter egg in the final Nougat preview did so because they looked in the wrong place. Has anyone, AFTER tapping the 'N' like 10 times fast, even remotely considered looking in the Quick Settings menu? Click "Edit" and way down at the bottom you'll see an "Android Easter Egg" tile that you can add to it.

Well it downloaded fine, verified fine, but then rebooted to install. Left it alone, then came back to find a recovery screen (Android robot with exclamation point) captioned with "Error!"

What exactly would cause this?

Today's release of Developer Preview 5 narrows down the final release of Nougat to a 2-week window, based on the 4-6 week interval between builds: no earlier than August 15 and no later than August 29. The press release about the final release to the public includes the words "later this summer" — this release window definitely corroborates that claim.

Because I share a time zone with the Google headquarters, it's easy for me (and Ben) to do this. Just to make "4-6 weeks" absolutely clear to the media

Two statements out of many, A, and B, you're the only one committing fallacies.

Despite the final name being known for weeks, still getting a 404 instead of a landing page… why?

+Kenny Strawn Exactly what I'm saying. Hence a sign that a break from the norm is forthcoming.

3:20 PM Pacific time and still no Developer Preview 5 OTA from Preview 4, despite the sideloadable OTA files and factory images having been released 5 hours and 20 minutes (and counting) ago. Why the discrepancy between image releases and Beta Program OTA releases?

+Kenny Strawn maybe the random selection is based on the IMEI code? We will never know 😅

Saddleback College app developer/Christian apologist in training (est. 1993)... who also LOVES to study effects of ocean (ENSO) on climate
Introduction
Hello, my name is Kenny Strawn, was born on April 14, 1993, live in Mission Viejo, CA, and am currently a student at Saddleback College studying... you guessed it... software development, particularly for smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks. Have gone through three Chromebooks so far: started with a Cr-48 back in early 2011 that had a loose SATA cable to the SSD, then went on to an Acer AC700-1099 that was very fast and amazing at first, but soon became a severe underperformer, and now I'm rocking an Acer C720-2802 and loving it.

Since I have been so busy splitting time lately between Google+ and other social networks, it's been a long time since I last updated this. And since most of the content in here is ridiculously out of date (in fact, some of it even carried over from (!) Buzz), I figured this entire section deserves a complete rewrite.

I'm obviously kind of a rare mix of political positions here. There's millions of so-called "Christians" in the United States, sure... but what they practice is obviously not what they preach; in fact, the greedy billionaire Republicans in particular are in many ways completely contradicting themselves by being greedy and yet calling themselves Christians at the same time (Matthew 6:24). Likewise, there are others who do many things that are biblically correct on the financial and humility front, yet at the same time are pro-gay, pro-abortion Atheists. I, fortunately, see fault in BOTH of these positions, which is why I ended up voting for Gary Johnson (on his third-party ticket) in the 2012 election, since the choice between Obama and Romney in this case was a choice between a pro-gay, pro-abortion hypocrite and a pro-greed, pro-denialism hypocrite.

Another thing that sets me apart is that I also see that in many ways science and (wait, my pastor cringes at the word) religion are by no means one-against the other, and such relics as the Shroud of Turin (remember Ray Downing's awesome spectacle?) and many references to forensically accurate astronomical phenomena (round Earth, Earth revolves around the Sun... you know, the basic stuff that back in those days scientists frowned upon) in scripture only seem to reinforce what we know about science in general, which, along with how overplayed the evidence for Darwinism really is, is why being a software development student hasn't stopped me from continuing to be a (as anyone else would call me) Jesus-freak at the same time.

Back to the politics bit, since verses like Luke 6:24-26, 1 Timothy 6:10, and Matthew 6:24 all seem to condemn greed, they also condemn (in the modern era) the patent trolling and pervasive license restrictions that software vendors like Apple and Microsoft use to lock down their products and stifle others... but then again, I also know that HTC, Samsung, and LG can in the case of their proprietary forks of Android that they install on non-Nexus devices be just as foul as Apple when it comes to openness (locked bootloaders? Really?), which made me, back in December 2012, settle for an iPhone 4S (which was $99 with the 5 already out) instead of going for another AT&T Android device, since I am much happier with an up-to-date proprietary fork of Darwin (iOS 7) than I ever would be with an out-of-date (by several versions, at least) proprietary fork of Android.

Bragging rights
None. If there's any joy in my life, Jesus is the one who made it happen; therefore, He's the one that deserves the credit (see Ephesians 2:8-9).

Seriously, I have absolutely no idea what the two negative review-less scores are about. The baristas are extremely friendly. The frappuccinos, refreshers, hot chocolate, lattes, and other drinks (with the exception of black coffee, which is *always* bitter and therefore horrible-tasting no matter where you go) are *all* beyond incredible. The various pastries are all delectable, and the atmosphere? Well, let's just say it's not only good for studying, socializing, and using my Chromebook (which, by the way, there's also free Wi-Fi), but also feels just like home (i.e. an old house) for some people. For someone to have the nerve to post negative (1/3) scores sans reviews on this place (at least with a review, people can actually explain WHY they feel so bad) is absurd.

It's a grocery store. Don't mislabel it as an ATM location, please! Thanks...

Simply put, despite how little I get here, what I have gotten (after having gone here multiple times, at least 50 or more, with my family since I was at least 2 or 3 years old) at this amazing Chinese restaurant has overall been nothing short of outstanding. The orange chicken is completely off the chart. The various soups are all total delicacies. The rice is cooked to just the right consistency -- not to hard, not too soft. The drink selection is beyond incredible. Even the appetizer chow mein noodles, when dipped in the right sauces, are transformed into pure awesomeness. The decorative murals that take up entire walls, *real* (in contrast to silk in some other restaurants) houseplants, bright white tablecloths, and off-the-chart plating make up the decor section of the review (which is absolutely outstanding). And, finally, of the countless times I've been here, there wasn't one incident where my family was treated with poor service. Not one! The servers are always friendly, always reliable (I haven't encountered one instance of an order misinterpretation), and always quick to deliver soups, salads, appetizers, and meals. After reading other reviews, I seriously feel somewhat bad for the others who don't feel so fortunate. That doesn't usually happen, and it certainly didn't happen for me one bit. And for those of you "low salt" naysayers: Last I checked, Chinese food (at least Sichuan, along with Thai and other cuisines) is supposed to be sweet and spicy, but NOT salty. And in those areas especially, the restaurant is absolutely outstanding.

Back in June (8-11 to be specific), I stayed, ate, and rode back and forth to Mammoth from this very resort as part of a church retreat. I must admit, everything about this place was over the top. Food was excellent, the room I stayed in (although the beds were old) was of very good quality, and for the money, you get a much better deal by staying in Tom's Place and commuting to Mammoth than by staying in Mammoth Lakes and having to pay about 3x as much for lodging.

Technical support is through the roof. Whether it's a device defect or (if you have AppleCare+ coverage) a cracked screen, it won't just be fixed but replaced with a new device, and that's what makes it awesome. To be fair, open source software, like Android, tends to have trade-offs associated with it when it comes to technical support. You mess up the software, you're on your own. That's good for people like me that actually like to tinker, but for the "average Joe", the lack of technical support in Linux in one form or another is probably why Linux hasn't taken off like it should. Then again, GPL software does get over-the-air upgrades in a much more timely fashion than proprietary BSD and/or Apache forks, so...

Let's face it, when you are as picky as me when it comes to food (i.e. "enough sweet onion sauce to cover *every* leaf of lettuce, *every* piece of chicken, and *every* olive"), you'll definitely love the amazing flexibility of the staff at this awesome place. Yes, the food is excellent (as you'd always expect from the Subway chain as a whole), and the drinks (including non-sodas) equally so. The decor reminds me of that in most authentic Italian (i.e. Peppino's, Olive Garden) restaurants (not to mention also, thanks to both her parents having immigrated from Italy, my grandmother's house 3000 miles away from here in extreme northeastern, i.e. rural Pike County, Pennsylvania), and it really adds to the place's awesomeness. So, overall, would definitely not be ashamed to give this place a perfect score.
