Pretty interesting angle (demonstration?) on cognitive bias.  =)

Don't worry, it's just a "wobble"...

Wait... why are you reassuring me again?

If this is true, it's a pretty sad state of affairs overall.

(e.g. Bank of Canada in full control of another entity, the blackout of any media coverage on this -- why?)

Is it just me or is 48 million people on Food Stamps absolutely crazy?

In comparison, the population of Canada is ~35 million (https://www.google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl#q=population+of+canada) and the total population of the USA is ~316 million (https://www.google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl#q=population+of+the+united+states) -- so over 15% are on food stamps.

Woah, weird, date shows up as 21st, but on the page it says 27th.

I've decided I'm not a big fan of this "simplified" permissions update.

1) Google doesn't want you to know that apps use the internet. Why? (Oh yeah, it wants ads by default. But in the process makes it less obvious that an app could be up to no good. Not that that stopped people from installing things... Just makes it harder to tell for people who actually care.)

2) Google doesn't want to make obvious which permissions have changed. Why? (No obvious good reason I can think of. Aside from lowering the barrier to auto update and just getting the user to blindly update. Might as well get rid of all "permission" information then and be like iOS.)

I dunno, seems like the Google experience has been going backwards for the last year or so... (G+, maps, android...)
