You probably have stuff. I also have stuff! We have stuff in common. Here, check out all my stuff on Android Police. 
Howdy. The name's Michael Crider, and I hope you've noticed that I've been hanging around here for the last year or so. I'm a web writer and general geek,... by Michael Crider in Features, News, What We Use Series

My desk is clean today. This is an occasion worth documenting. 

My approach to technology blogging is kind of like using one of those NASA Mission Control workstations. Except alone, in my apartment, on a giant machine I assembled myself. But I do have spaceships, so, yeah.

This. 
 
Whenever we get pitched a new Free2Play Android game, the decision whether to even look into it is simple: if IAPs are above $30-50, especially the $99.99 level, I close it instantly. There are rare exceptions, but this is a great rule to go by.

That's just ridiculous. I'm with you and +Artem Russakovskii​, in fact I usually won't even download them. Pings my paranoia side to wonder why they're being so nebulous.

I made this Android Police wallpaper for my Nexus 6, and figured that someone here might like it. 2560x2560, should look good on any Android device released so far. It's based on this wallpaper from DeviantArt: http://delta909.deviantart.com/art/Folds-348877239

They say that art is never finished, only abandoned. I just kicked my novel out the door and told that lazy bum to get a job. 
…well, sort of. I’m finished writing the manuscript, at least - I’ve sent it off to the copy editor to clear up all my mistakes. The final version of Good Intentions: A Supervillain Story should be...

A strong contender for the most derivative, soulless crap I've seen on the Play Store yet. I can name seven out of nine pop culture knockoffs, how 'bout you? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.caesars.nozomi $100 IAP, of course.

A friend of mine saw the German Navy Jack from WWI hanging in his daughter's elementary school classroom, along with modern flags for US and Germany. The original was used on German warships from 1903-1919, among many other older German Empire uses. It's strange to see it in that context, and he's worried that it might be a subtle neo-Nazi symbol. If anyone has knowledge of the modern neo-Nazi movement in the US or extreme nationalism in modern Germany, specifically associated with this flag, I'd appreciate the information.

I can only tell something about Germany today, so: The iron cross is a symbol with a very ambivalent history and still used as a motive in the army ("Bundeswehr"). But it's always without the three strips. Combined it's a neo nazi symbol or at least very very right wing. It's often a replacement for the other flag with the same colors and another kind of cross (Swastika). The reason for this is that german laws strictly forbid any use outside of historical terms. So there's no way this flag represents anything from the modern democratic society in Germany. It's - in our definition - a historic symbol.

Imagine having to spend 24 hours screening local talent for a Yakov Smirnoff impersonation contest. That's April 1st (and apparently the day before) for tech journalists.

In Soviet Russia, local talent screens *you!*

...Don't worry, you'll be fine. If there's one thing the internet is bad at doing, it's being original.

"Trust me on this, little girls. I was raised on a ranch with real horses. Their capacity for defecation is astounding." 

Have I mentioned lately that I love my job?

Horrible people working for a horrible company. After asking for a manager to solve a problem, without being uncivil in any way, the lady at the counter threatened to call the police if I didn't leave. Avoid at all costs and use UPS or USPS instead.
