I didn't understand what this meant when I saw someone mention yellow ribbons on dogs a month or so ago.  Good to know and a great idea.

This significant price difference is why I still use Kindle over Google Play.  I have price checked a handful of times in the last couple of months and Kindle has been less expensive by far.   I am really curious to see how Google Play will ever compete.

This is probably the Android announcement I'm the most excited about this year -- introducing the Android Device Manager! It will launch later this month, and allow you to remotely locate or wipe your device if it's lost or stolen.

Several months ago I wrote up a long post on Google+ with a lot of security tips for Android users. When the Android Device Manager launches I'll be sure to give that article a major update.

There is a message here that unfortunately still needs to be heard and taken to heart by far too many. Delivered by beautiful women and a great song.
I'm proud of my friends who made this, and honoured to be part of it.
