Can't sleep tonight. Got 8 Google Opinion Rewards surveys - so far. I guess Google can't sleep either.

Edit: 9
Edit 2: I'm at 14 now

I wonder what's going on?

Still going. Barbara checked her phone, and she had 5 surveys queued up. Google's AI has escaped, and is learning about people...

Chromebooks are the new laptop for the majority. With the impending ability to run Android apps on them as well, their popularity will only increase.

Declawing is a sick thing done by stupid people that shouldn't own pets anyway. When their kid pees the bed, do they cut off his dick?

Today's update to the Android Google keyboard has an awesome new feature. You can slide your finger left and right on the space-bar to move the cursor left and right with fine control. Instead of tapping over and over to try to position the cursor at the correct character, just tap in the general area and use the space-bar to move.

You can also delete words to the left of the cursor by sliding left from the delete key.

The combination of these two make using the phone on-screen keyboard much nicer!

The Linux 4.6 kernel is officially out; the changes are in the attached link. You can build it tonight, or wait a day for major distributions to have it available.

We've been running it on our systems (Intel x86_64, AMD x86_64, and ARMv7) since -rc1, and haven't run into any problems.

For an overview of what major functions are expected to be merged for 4.7, see:

Ah, the IoTTMNEBY (Internet of Things That May Not Even Be Yours). What an amazing time we're living in.

There's a Raspbian update for all you vanilla Raspberry Pi users out there. The update went smoothly on my Kodi RPi2B.

Amazon has not been showing their branded Visa card's reward points for two days now. I notified Amazon, and they said they're working on it. I notified Chase, and they haven't replied (other than the "we got your message" canned reply).

Since I haven't seen this in the media, I assume it's impacting only a small number of customers. But since the points aren't available, they can't be used to make a purchase. I have to think that's impacting their orders.
