Here's an example of a very real world situation. I'm currently in a rented condo that offers free WiFi. Unfortunately it seems to be on a cable service shared by the entire (massive) building and with who knows how many other WiFi networks crowding the air. Speedtest.net shows a download speed of .06Mbps.

I'm wondering if Blogger is setting things up for a new collection of modern-looking templates with more functionality.

Usability testing doesn’t reveal problems in your product so much as it uncovers arrogance in your thinking.

+Google Analytics​​, a lot of people are spending a lot of time, effort, and other resources on removing referral spam from their analytics data. Can you put something in place on your end instead? It'd probably be pretty easy for you to analyze the referrals, find patterns across accounts, and remove them automatically.

Merge SMS Removed from Hangouts on Android?
Is it just me, or has the feature been removed? Messages from my contacts are no longer merged, and the setting isn't even available anymore.

This is on my tablet with which I used Google Voice. Haven't checked my phone yet.

I might have a new use for my Motorola Xoom! This set up uses an app called Headunit for AA: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.yyx.hu&hl=en

The app is compatible with the devices running Android 4.1+ (e.g. - Motorola Xoom). I wish I could test it first without buying it as I don't have the necessary cables. Also, I'd need to figure out how to rig up a mount for the Xoom as well; that sucker is heavy!

It's by no mean frictionless. Now. Might improve as the developer tweaks stuff over time.
