PSA: There appears to be a regression in AlarmManager behavior on Android 5.1, where repeat intervals of less than a minute are rounded up to a minute.

Maybe, but if you think you need the system to wake your app up more than once per minute you may have more serious problems.

In fact, if you think you need the system to wake up your app even once per minute, you still probably have more serious problems. 😉

On sale at +Crutchfield for $99 until Feb 28. Chose this one because it also comes with a traditional remote. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_596SMRTCTL/Logitech-Harmony-Smart-Control.html

Avoid Bitfountain at all costs

Earlier today I posted about an new video lecture course by the fine people at +bitfountain. I shared a promo code that made the course free, and was able to sign up myself. Unfortunately, it seems the promotion did too well, so bitfountain has cut off access to anyone that used the code, even if they had already started the course. I no longer can access the videos that I purchased.

This is pure bait-and-switch, and should not be tolerated. Please tell your friends to stay as far away from +bitfountain as possible.

What an awesome and inspiring idea. Volunteer your time to describe what you see on camera, live, for someone who's blind.

Can't wait until the Android client is ready. #bemyeyes  

Oh, and they're open source! https://github.com/bemyeyes
Be My Eyes is an iPhone app for that lets blind people contact a network of sighted volunteers for help with live video chat.

Ugh. Ever since +Spotify added remote control playback, the app is constantly running on my phone. Even when I haven't opened it since a restart, it's always in the top 2 or 3 slots on battery usage. This "HelperService" is the problem.

I'd jump ship to Google Music, but it's the same crap with that app. Constantly running in the background.

These screenshots from just now show it running for over 21 hours. I haven't opened the app since restart.

Ugh, now the Google+ app randomly jumps to the top of the main stream whenever it wants. This was highly annoying when the issue was only in communities, but a deal breaker on the main stream.

Honestly, how does this get past QA?

It's been so long since I didn't suffer from this on a daily basis.

When I take over this Android project and realize that we're getting 1000 API requests per minute for 100 beta users because the way sync works is to send every record in the database as a separate HTTP call, rather than just sending an array, and it syncs all data every time something changes, rather than just the changed data, and better yet, it loops over the records to create every org.json.JSONObject, rather than using serialization, I can't help but fantasize about visiting the previous developer and being all like...

So, essentially, all of the recent Nexus devices account for less than 0.1% of active Android devices. Interesting...
