Hey +Phil Nickinson​, love the +Android Central​ podcast, and I heard you guys talk about the Nexus 6 & 9 not loading people's Google+ profile pictures as the devices profile picture.

Here is your solution...

If you open up the Google+ app, you're pretty much automatically signed in, but if you go into the setting, and contacts, you need to turn on Google+ Contact sync! Your profile pic will load then.

As a #woman  in #tech  or any other industry, the #wagegap  between you and your male peers is probably a very real thing. There is a surprisingly high gap in pay not just for women though, but also minorities (http://goo.gl/qGS6Ax).

If anything, +Sarah Silverman's solution is by far the best... She is trying to raise $29 trillion in lost wages for women to pay back women the money lost by being a woman (in jest). The money will actually go to support the +National Women's Law Center who promotes and pushes legislation to support equal pay.
Help crowdfund the wage gap that women face just for having vaginas. The money raised goes to the National Women’s Law Center.

I'm willing to bet many of you are at least some what aware of the situation of Hong Kong, the protests for democracy and what have you. Coming out of it though are some interesting uses of technology, like FireChat, that were actually predicted by +Eric Schmidt, mind you used in a very very different way.

I've spent too long neglecting a lot of different things, my personal blog/site is most definitely one of them. With all of the changes in structure I am making in my life (and to be honest, some of them are not exactly my choice) I want to take the time to revive this baby, and really make it shine!

I don't think I'm breaking any NDAs with my family when I share this, but on this past Wednesday (at 7:42 PM) I became am uncle to a beautiful (lusciously filled head of hair) baby boy.

If you haven't heard of +Google Ideas thats ok, they're not really the biggest group out of +Google. They may however be one the most interesting, but they also have been called out by Julian Assange for having an agenda!

Slight problem I see with this campaign, and maybe its just how jaded I see the world. But if they are unpaid spokes people for tobacco, doesn't that mean their opinion are not bought or sold by money? That they smoke of their own free will and because the enjoy it?

This isn't tobacco forcing their product into movies or television. These are adults making a decision to do something that they enjoy. What's wrong with that?

I understand that there is a desire, and a general health benefit, to helping kids realize that smoking isn't cool. But these are adults who are of legal age to smoke and are. Just as if I was skimming through a magazine and see a celebrity over 21 drinking alcohol, what's wrong with that?

I'm sorry, I appreciate what your program stands for, but this campaign rubbed me the wrong way.

Introduction
Please allow me to introduce myself. The name is Mehdi, and I am an extraordinary gentleman that will keep you thinking about how in the world you were able to lead a seemingly normal life without knowing me.

I've raced Olympic swimmers and former world record holders. I've traveled numerous times to amazing locales likes Italy, Germany, Turkey, San Francisco, and many other places. (San Francisco is still by far my favorite) I'm an amazing cook, primarily inspired by Caribbean styles of cooking. I enjoy a variety of books and usually am stuck reading through a few books at the same time.

Excellent and supportive instructors/guides in a fun and challenging environment. I would definitely love to go again with my friends, which is saying a lot when I was dreading it at first.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this place in Westville. The food was pretty darn good, and the place had a swanky vibe. Would definitely come again!
