Google Now reminders simply no longer work. Even worse: I'm still, often, not getting Gmail notifications until i move the phone. Both are not battery optimized.

Really not a fan of Doze, and wish I could disable it altogether. The future of Android looks troubling if Doze is going to be vastly expanded, and even Google apps can't do it right.

Still waiting on this reminder:

Missed Google Now reminders once too, so I just stopped using them as they are absolutely unreliable. I use Keep reminders however, they are working correctly for me

This is a real problem, and a worry that I share. When you have a successful independent developer affraid to publish their app, for fear of an unjust ban, it's pretty clear that the system is broken.

2 years ago I quit my 200k/year job to follow my passion. After failing with a few mobile apps, one of my Android apps took off and it's now generating enough money for me to live off of.

I'm using that income to focus on next projects, but reading here about getting banned from the Play Store for unclear/unknown reasons makes me worried. What's even worse is after the ban, we are left with automated responses.

Just a reminder that this still need sigs: https://www.change.org/p/sergey-brin-respect-the-efforts-of-small-and-indie-android-developers

Since they are automated there were a lot of false positives. But for the last year I think real people look at them before banning them.

Man, the latest update to the Google Keyboard made it so much faster and smoother (on my 5X, at least). It feels really great to swipe.

The new gestures are fantastic too, like moving the cursor by swiping along the space bar, and deleting words by swiping away from the delete key. I've only had these gestures for a couple of weeks, but already I can't imagine going without them.

Really frustrating that they keep cutting off the #io16  live streams when they get to Q&A. Just got a 15 min VR presentation, then cut to the same 4 vids that have been on loop for 3 days.

When will Google realize that the only real value of IO is the Q&A.

I was going to write this very post. 1 hour slots for a talk, 15-30 minutes of actual talk and then 45-30 minutes of those videos, it got to my nerves by day 1. I'm considering this the worst IO for this reason.

But we have to admit that the software industry is not a good place to be if you’re a sole trader / indie app maker / small startup. That is the objective truth. People have no problem in paying $5 daily for a coffee. But they have a problem in paying upwards of $0 daily to use an app. Heck, nobody’s going to pay to use your app for $5 a year, let alone a single day.

The battle is not in figuring out how to get customers to pay for our products — that is an expired time period. The present day battle is in how to get customers to pay for software at all.
It really gets to me when people become “frustrated with startups that refuse to raise prices”.

This fucking country is unbelievable sometimes. AP intentionally lies, declaring Clinton wins primary, on the biggest day of the race.

For those that don't know, Clinton does not have enough delegates to win, because Superdelegates are not counted until the convention in July. There was no voting yesterday, which makes it clear that this is propaganda intended to dissuade Sanders supporters from showing up at the polls.

Of course, all of the "respectable news" cesspools were quick to escalate the terms used:

Reuters: "Clinton clinches Democratic nomination"
NYTimes: "Hillary Clinton Has Clinched Democratic Nomination"
NBC: "Clinton Hits 'Magic Number' of Delegates to Clinch Nomination"

I only found one article, from Vox, that attempted to be unbiased: http://www.vox.com/2016/6/6/11873406/bernie-sanders-hillary-clinton-superdelegates
WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president, and will be first woman to top the ticket of a major U.S. political…

+Kahil Nettleton It seems that you didn't read my full post. Nobody reads the AP brief, but it resulted in a bunch of headlines that used terms like "clinched nomination". This is misleading, at best. To write off the timing of this and claim conspiracy theorist is just ridiculous.

So far, no one who is hardcore Bernie has been able to provide little more than opinion and rhetoric against Clinton.

Honestly don't have the time for this level of ignorance.

socket.io's CDN SSL certification just expired. This could have some fairly widespread effects.

Waitress tells us outside seats are reserved, then we watch as people sit in them off the street. Baby cockroach crawling up the wall next to our table. Only not one start because the food was good.

Just had my first good experience with a car dealership. After visiting Toyota of Manhattan and Plaza Toyota (Brooklyn), I was starting to think that all Toyota dealers are snakes. Bill Olansen was a breath of fresh air. No hidden fees, TrueCar price honored, and generally a pleasurable experience. Lee's will be my #1 recommendation to anyone looking for a car in the future. Other places don't even come close.
