A lot of interesting information in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey, and some very surprising. Perhaps the only thing more surprising than the tab vs space results is this compensation breakdown.

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. 😉

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...

Google's apps suck...

... all of my battery life.

You know, it's really frustrating that Google's apps are consistently the worst offenders of battery drain and hung services on all of my Android devices. Watch 1 video? Youtube OfflineTransferService runs for days. Make one Google search? Google SearchService will run until you force close it. Check out your G+ stream? NetworkQueueService is here to stay! Look up an address in Maps? UploadService runs for no reason, in a persistent restarting loop. Have location entirely disabled? Still have 4 location services running. Disconnect Android Wear device? 9 Bluetooth services and 3 Wear services will run forever, anyway.

Getting really tired of this. The only apps I have disabled on my N5 are Google apps. Hey, +Colt McAnlis, how about getting your company to practice what it preaches? 

Here are just a few screenshots from the last few weeks.

Does anyone know of a way to completely disable the "Tool Window" from popping up every time you run a project from Android Studio?

crazy solution: In IntelliJ, at least, you can choose 'floating mode' for the tab. Then move the floating tab to another screen, turn that screen off, then you'll not see it on every run.

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
