The good
This is an awesome interactive watch face, its good to see more thought is going into watch faces. http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2015/08/interactive-watch-faces-with-latest.html
The bad
Design needs work. On smaller screens, features that require browsing though multiple options work better with compact list views (not for heavy txt), or in this case a square/rectangular grids or clustered circles a la Apple Watch.

Prometheus caught a lot of flack for supposed plot holes and the fact that Vickers and Shaw didnt know hpw not to run in a straight line. Well damn it, I really liked the movie and I can't wait until the sequel.
Prometheus 2, you have my attention.
Ridley Scott just can't leave space alone. In a recent interview with Empire, the The Martian director stated plainly that his next project is the sequel to 2012's Prometheus. "I was starting to...

Saw this article by Chad Hart last week, where he does some Wireshark debugging to find out if the Amazon "Mayday" help feature is powered by WebRTC. It’s a really good article, and gives an excellent view into the topology of the Mayday system; regarding WebRTC, he determines that “there is a very high probability that this is WebRTC for the video with a lower probability on the audio”

Well, it’s true. We did our own forensics a few months back and determined that Mayday is completely WebRTC-based, using the Chrome WebRTC stack, the G.711 audio codec, and most likely, the VP8 video codec. There are a number of hints in the Wireshark trace that give this away, even though the media is encrypted with SDES-SRTP; we are pretty sure the video is VP8 because the observed packetization exactly matches how WebRTC handles VP8.

Overall Mayday is a great WebRTC app; my only complaint is the use of the G.711 codec results in quite poor-quality audio for a modern app. Here’s hoping Mayday starts using the Opus codec soon!

Imteresting. I do think about going back to iOS every now and again, mostly because of how smooth SMS & call forwarding between ithings and Macs are. Glad to know my 360 wouldn't be useless junk if I did lol.

New in the Google Play Developer Console: Know where your most valuable users come from.

Developers will now get new performance data on how all their user acquisition channels are performing on the User Acquisition tab in the Developer Console. You'll see how people are finding your Play Store listing, how many install your app, and how many go on to make purchases. Check it out in the Developer Console: http://g.co/play/developerconsole.

I saw him speak at the Omniture Summit a number of years ago. He was discussing his book Meatball Sunday. As a speaker he is top-notch. I also subscribe to his newsletter, but I wish it went into more depth it's usually very top line.

Today I learned how to explain an earthquake with the simplest metaphor ever thanks to NPR.
An earthquake is caused by a sudden slip on a fault, much like what happens when you snap your fingers. Before the snap, you push your fingers together and sideways. Because you are pushing them together, friction keeps them from moving to the side. When you push sideways hard enough to overcome this friction, your fingers move suddenly, releasing energy in the form of sound waves that set the air vibrating and travel from your hand to your ear, where you hear the snap.
Just as you snap your fingers with the whole area of your fingertip and thumb, earthquakes happen over an area of the fault, called the rupture surface.

Fault dynamics/mechanics was always a fun part of my structural geology studies in school.
