Bourbon/Neat docs: "Change what you want." "Don't edit the files; we might update." "Change these lines in the files." "Create this file (that already exists)." Wha?!

Control whether birthdays from Google+ are shown in settings. You'll also see the same changes on the web next week. Thank you!
 
Improvements to Google Calendar for Android

Over the next few days, you'll see lots of improvements to the new Google Calendar app based on your feedback with more coming soon. Here are some of the highlights:

● See more events at a glance with 7-day week view and pinch-to-zoom
● Add Google Drive files to events. Drive will even check if everyone can open them. 
● Control whether birthdays from Google+ are shown in settings. You'll also see the same changes on the web next week.
● A new option to show week numbers in settings.
● Import .ics files sent to you in Gmail and other apps

You can download the app on Google Play: www.google.com/calendar/android

PS: Yes, we're still working on Google Calendar for iPhone.  Stay tuned!

Do any web developers/designers following me have any experience with using Bourbon Neat?
What is it about? Neat is a semantic grid framework built on top of Sass and Bourbon. It is simple enough to get you up and running in minutes, and powerful enough to handle any responsive layout you can dream of. Why another grid framework? Because we are not happy with other frameworks.
