"Our site is best experienced with ad blockers turned off " is probably the biggest lie on the internet right now.

See this right here? This jet has cost, so far, $1.3 trillion dollars. And, it's so buggy they shouldn't be flying it.

I'm going to have to take Google+ off of my home page in Chrome. I love + and it's become my social network of choice for discovery but it seems like the HTML and Android communities are getting hit every day with porn-spam. Not sure where the automatic checks or the mods went but it's pretty embarassing to get started in the local starbucks and have boobs showing up.

And what seems like a really easy fix that will help is removing that content from my stream when I mark it as spam/porn. Anytime these show up I try to do a good job and mark them as both and yet they still show up in my stream. Wouldn't it be an easy fix to remove any porn/spam marked content from my own stream?

google, PLEASE come to Denver before Comcast does this to us?! THERE ARE NO OTHER OPTIONS HERE. 

I know that's not a surprising thing for most people...
 
Comcast expanding internet usage caps to more areas
Watch out: Comcast has started expanding the areas where it is testing bandwidth caps.

This bendgate stuff is getting ridiculous. What I want to see is a phone that DOESN'T bend under these 'tests'.

And, how "real world" are these tests anyway? 
 
We will probably never see the end of smartphone bend tests on YouTube as long as people find creative, entertaining, and sometimes brutal ways of conducting those test, both to prove how fragile a device is or to refute that claim. Recently, however, the…

Hey all, my brother and I have created a new type of Fantasy Football site, where we mix in some stock market mechanics.

We're giving away prizes if you win the Super Bowl league we have setup.

Check it out!

And it comes less than two weeks after cancelling Google Play Music cause they didn't offer a good way to share this with my wife. Well, I wonder if we'll be back!
 
It's happening! Google Play Music family plans should be here within a week!

The Single Biggest Mistake Programmers Make Every Day

I recently taught a master class at a conference. I had the students team up and collaborate on an app project. I spent the rest of the day walking around the room and helping the teams progress. I noticed a consistent theme, which inspired the question on Twitter: “What do you think is the biggest/most common mistake software developers make?”

Imagine these e-sports students...

Imagine if Columbia or Robert Morris held sponsored events where proceeds go to the schools while students compete in LoL or Madden or whatever.

Imagine they start making a lot of money and start building specific venues to host these events where large contracts involving millions of dollars trade hands with the schools benefiting financially and the students are bared from making ANY money off of their efforts, even money to offset the college tuition.

Image students playing countless hours of Heroes of the Storm or Smite every day, going to class, studying, and basically working themselves to the bone so they can maintain the scholarship. 

Doesn't that seem really weird? Doesn't it seem unauthentic? 

I'm all for the e-sports craze of late, but I'm hoping that the organizers aren't just trying to mimic the successes of more traditional sports without paying special attention to the failures. There are  a lot of negative things that occur in those sports as a result of the businessification of a game. 

There have already been major scandals and allegations of cheating.  Will the trend continue? Who will be the Patriots of the LoL e-sport? Will they continue to find unique ways to exploit bugs in CS:GO? 
 
Columbia College is the latest school to offer an eSports scholarship program, with partial scholarships based on skill level.

Stay away for iPhone repairs. Claimed to repair a phone and almost destroyed it along the way. Left screws out, left shields and braces out, stripped screws... So poorly done the phone broke again from a fall less then 2 feet a week later. Would not recommend. Apparently the guy "completed" the repair. Take that into consideration. He will charge you, give you back your phone, and then admit he never actually finished it and give you a refund, leaving you with a phone missing parts.

Looking to buy what will be my first gun. Stopped here and talked to a guy for an hour. He answered all my questions and went above and beyond to try to help me get the best possible gun for me. Haven't purchased yet but they are at the top of the list for local shops when I do.
