But legalization hasn't led to more violence where pot has actually been legalized.

Interesting developments. I remember saying that Android-first was going to happen "soon" a few years back. My timing was off by a bit, but I believe it is inevitable.
Believe it or not, top of the line Android phones show 40% higher engagement than iPhones. Localytics data also shows that Android OS fragmentation is no longer a fair concern.

Having to launch 6 more applications that do memory clean up is cheating. But hey, what ever makes the analytics show in your favor (this is equally a stab at apple, as they for sure skew analytics.)

Time for my PSA to donate blood. It doesn't take any time. And free cookies.

Really, its not that bad. I felt good donating. They just don't want mine because of my medical history. If you can donate, donate.

Holy crap.
 
Suppose you have a Java app running on a bunch of autoscaled VMs, and you need to debug a rare bug. Manually ssh into each instance, restart the process under gdb, set watchpoints on all of them, sigh....no longer needed. On GCP, just use the cloud debugger, set a breakpoint, and the first time any of your VMs hits that line you get a snapshot with all local variables, stack trace, etc. Problem solved.
