Help me cite some teachings/discussions on why it's wise to not muddy an icon's meaning by using it frivolously for other things ~OR~ why it's ok.

It's pretty obvious that using, say, the Coca Cola logo to represent water isn't doing it (designing) right, right?

What about using the Material 'sharing' icon to represent 'submission' (like a form submit button) or 'posting' or 'uploading'? IMO that'd be a bit of a design crime. Keen to hear what others think though!

Like this? "Icons are, by definition, a visual representation of an object, action, or idea."

.. The suggestion being that from a visual communication perspective, having icons with commonly understood/easily understandable single meanings within your app domain you can then rely on perhaps some pre-existing understanding in the user, leads to a smoother user experience?

Search is broken on play.google.com

I dare say, there's room for someone to disrupt the world of search at the moment.

Two days ago, the search box on play music wasn't working (probably still isn't)

The search box on play music on PC would only work from the "my music" or whatever page.

Android Studio now has a Nexus4 camera app emulator? I'd just like to be able to choose when it is turned on and also would like the ability to turn it off without having to End Task.

I've decided that I am going to replace phone for odd years and then replace my watch on the even year so I hope all these sort of updates keep coming! 

(NB: I reserve the right to change this plan if an amazing watch feature comes out)

I also wonder if or maybe why Google doesn't consider Google Now/Notifications direct to the watch (i.e. no need for any Phone pairing!)

They can't even get steamed vegetables right. The steak came out wrong, bland with no jus and no offer of mustard. Really a waste of money.
