Google genius combined with the genius of my telco...

Step 1: Call support.
Step 2: Get redirected to advanced support.
Step 3: Wait in queue...
Step 4: An automatic quality questionnaire from the support queue calls me while I'm waiting in for step 3 to be done.
Step 5: Dismiss call on watch.

So what happens?
1. My call to the advanced support queue gets hanged up.
2. I get to talk to the quality questionnaire that I tried to dismiss.
3. It's now too late to get to talk to advanced support because their queue is now closed.

The acclaimed Limbo has just been released for Android. If you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, go get this! You won't be sorry. And if you are anyway, then you should probably see a psychiatrist. :)

How a DSLR shutter works during the highest of framerates. Interesting stuff for camera enthusiasts.

If you want to see the mechanics of how a modern DSLR shutter works, one way to do so is through slow-motion captured with a high-speed camera.

In order to change the colour of certain elements of Dialogs (like the buttons) it is necessary to override the default style of the Dialog. Now, using AppCompat for support through the ages I naturally inherit my dialog style from Theme.AppCompat.Light.Dialog. However, what I get on fairly old (yet strangely widespread) phones is what you see in the lower left corner. A white background behind my dialog. On Lollipop everything looks just fine.

Ok, fine, I'll just change the android:windowBackground to transparent - that fixes the problem on the old phones. Unfortunately this parameter seems to have been repurposed in new Androids to give me what is shown in the upper right corner.

Of course, this can easily be fixed with version specific themes, but let's just agree that this shouldn't be a problem to begin with...

Note: The small graphical glitch in the upper right picture is not because of the background, but me removing a meeting that shouldn't be shared.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: The horrendous lack of type safety in Java collections is horrendous!

A bit lot about Kotlin for Android from a celeb.
 
Using Project Kotlin for Android

I've been watching and playing with Kotlin for about two years now. It's gotten to the point where I think it's really viable for Android app development. I decided to take a few nights and dig into a bunch of details about the language and why it's a good candidate.

This is a slightly modified copy of a document I presented internally at Square. We're not going to turn around and write everything in Kotlin. That wouldn't make sense. This was a sell on the language, features, and its implementation such that we can start experimenting.

Since I'm not interested in hearing people yell things that I already know about their favorite non-Java languages, comments are off and closed on this post. I've used Groovy and Scala a bunch, but thanks. I haven't used Xtend or Ceylon at all (hence their omission). If you're interested in discussing those, make your own post.

It seems that Google Glass is going mainstream (or as mainstream as a camera and screen attached to your eyebrow is going to get, anyway). I'm interested to see if all their many designers have managed to make something... Well, less intrusive on your face, really. And also at what price they expect this will be a viable product for your everyday american (probably).
 
We’re graduating from Google[x] labs

It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.

Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.

Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.

Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.

As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)

Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!
