I just read the +Google Developers post about I/O today. It mentions that the I/O after party is going to be outside this year with food trucks and indie bands. Good luck to everyone entering the lottery in an hour. I'm one of the lucky few that have already received their ticket so if you're selected, I'll see you there!

So everyone at I/O gets Google Glass and then they are sent out to the streets of San Francisco to party. This can get very exciting.. ;)

I hope the ensuing lawsuits will stop this spectacularly bad idea very soon.
What would deter you from speeding? How about a loud, jarring, and utterly annoying noise emanating somewhere from outside your vehicle?

This makes me think of the idiots who turn on their bright lights, as you hurtle towards them at 65mph in order to blind you because they think you have your high beams on.

In what world does it make sense to blind or startle any driver?

I don't buy a lot of t-shirts, but I had to get this one.

+Matt Hartley It was on Ript Apparel last week. It was a one-day-only kind of deal.

All I will say is OUCH
Third-base umpire Brad Myers was drilled in the groin area on a line drive hit by Brandon Phillips during the second inning of Monday's spring-training game between the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds...

It's a foul, too many balls on the field.

Dear +Android people - if I manually switch from bluetooth input to handset speaker at the beginning of the call, I don't want to switch back to bluetooth automatically at any point in that same call. I can't tell you how many important calls I've dropped because I briefly walk into range of a bluetooth device - like +Google Glass sitting upstairs on the charger - after I've manually switched the phone call to handset speaker, and the phone switches back to Glass. By the time I've realized what happened, the other person has hung up. I can't be the only person who has this problem.

I'd really love there to be a "swipe to answer with handset speaker" option - I have a pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones that are great for music, but awful for taking calls, so I always have to fumble about and disable it at the beginning of a call, whilst hoping the other party doesn't get confused and hang up!

If anyone is looking to upgrade their video card, I'm selling a pair of MSI Radeon R7 260X 2GD5-OCV1 cards. You get the two cards in static bags plus a crossfire bridge. They were powered-up in my machine for about two days with about an hour of gaming time on them. I ended up getting a higher-spec card from a friend so I no longer need them and I'm past the return window. $200 shipped (UPS ground w/insurance) in continental US. Selling as a pair only, payment through Google Wallet.

I will be ordering the new +OPPO Find 7 when +CyanogenMod becomes available for it. I'll miss wireless Qi charging but otherwise it checks all the boxes for me.
We've seen the teasers and we've seen the leaks, so it's about time to see the real thing. Oppo has finally unveiled the Find 7 in Beijing just now, and

I've googled quite a bit, there doesn't seem to be a qi-enabled battery + cover on the horizon either, eh?

Are hangouts being weird for anyone else again? Suddenly I can't load hangouts on my G+ or Gmail tabs.

Yeah, been like this for me for the past 3 hours. Just my account too. My fiance's account loads fine on my computer. It's not functioning on multiple machines too so I know it's the account and not the computer. Not fun...

Introduction
I'm a tech guy. As of May 2012, I've been a professional developer for 15 years. My father had to drive me to and from my first web developer job because I was too young to get a driver's license. Writing code and making things work is not just a job, it's a passion.

I'm also into cars (I've had two cars with engines that I've personally built and installed), play 8-ball and 9-ball in APA leagues, and enjoy gardening to occasionally get my eyes off of flickering pixels.

I spent the first 30 years of my life in the Boston area, then I got tired of the cold weather and snow and moved out to California. The only thing I regret about moving to Silicon Valley from Boston is not doing it 5 years earlier.

The pharmacy manager - an older Asian man - isn't very helpful and insisted on giving me the wrong prescription. If possible, I recommend going to another pharmacy.
