*Really, what's the big deal with Allo?!?
So, I installed the new Allow app on my cell phone today. I'm going to see how it works and how it is any different from the Google Messenger app. Regardless, neither of these apps is really of any use to me, as I am on my tablet and my PC almost as much during the week as my cellphone. Why couldn't they just put the cutesy stuff on Hangouts? #allo #messenger #hangouts

I wouldn't say it's fragmented. Hangouts is five different protocols-chat, video, VOIP, calls, texting-that you can vaguely lump together into "messaging." There's really no reason to be doing that, particularly when few people have phone calls and (likely) even fewer video chat.

Apple already does this. iMessage & text are the same app, but you can't really tell the difference in actual usage, while it's two entirely separate things in Hangouts, and Facetime and the phone are two more, unless you're on an iPad, in which case they're one app.

Basically, Allo/Duo/Messenger/whichever dialer is on your phone is Google mimicking how Apple's does this for the last few years. I'd also point out that your apps that "got any traction" are all stupid simple and do basically one thing. Kik is a chat app, FaceTime is video calling, and SnapChat is image messaging for lack of a better term.

As the father of teen-ager girls, this poem hit me like a 2x4. 
Poetry: “CUT TO: he shoves my face / into the flatbed then punts me / when he’s filled me.”

On "Mr. Robot" this week, they tied in WCW's poem "The Red Wheelbarrow". I don't know if I could be happier.

has replaced the faulty oven igniter, thus defeating -- nay, humiliating -- another household appliance......all for the mere cost of 29 dollars, 10 muffled expletives, 1 bloody knuckle, and 1 really loud expletive.

Just as with Yo La Tengo, sometimes the songs sung by the female drummer are just about perfect. Great Wes Anderson-ish video put together for this song....kudos to whomever.
