It's long-been ridiculous that Games are included in the Apps section of the Play Store, yet still have their own top-level category. It makes it impossible for an independent app developer to break into the "Top" lists, and as a result, I no longer browse the store for new apps. Who has the time to drill down into each category?

You know what's worse? There actually IS a way to view Apps by themselves, and Google simply hides it. This is pretty infuriating, but luckily there's a way to see it (on web and Android). 

Doesn't help much, as a dev, but at this point, that seems hopeless. After-all, you don't PLAY apps.

This app simply takes you to that section. You can also get to it by navigating to https://play.google.com/store/apps/category/APPLICATION. Probably a matter of time before google pulls the app.
With the most recent updates to the Play Store, it's become increasingly di...

+Paul Burke yep, it seems this is the best safe approach, since many Twitter client use such a scheme.
But the screenshots can definitely be a problem.

Wow, another legend lost in 2016. #ripprince  
The iconic musician was found dead at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota

Yes really sad. I had the chance to meet him at his Purple Rain Tour in 1993 in Germany and he was a really impressive person. A real Big ONE!

Nexus 5X now comes with a Micro USB to USB-C adapter. This is a good thing, especially given all of the non-Benson-approved cables out there.

Another Bottom Navigation library appears! This one supports XML placement, but doesn't support Menus yet.

That was fast. Open source library for implementing the Bottom Navigation Bar in Android.

Update - Installing March patch fixed all lag and touch issues.

Wow, the Pixel C is unbelievably laggy and touch sensitivity is surprisingly bad. First impressions are simply awful. The screen doesn't even look that good, especially with the stock wallpapers. There are visible lines between the pixels when it's showing white. Screen taps are often ignored, and scroll events are so wonky, they sometimes go in the opposite direction.

How can this thing even be sold? Did I get a lemon?

It seems that not much has changed since Honeycomb and the Xoom; Android on full-sized tablets is still embarrassing. Going to give N a shot, but damn, what a bad experience.

This is the problem with our economy. $50 billion in revenue, 51 million iPhones sold, in 3 months, but because it's down from last year, people are already talking about the need for a new blockbuster product.

Constant growth is simply unsustainable and unrealistic.
Don't say they didn't warn you. Apple posted a year-over-year decline in revenue today, the first time the company's failed to grow its business in 13 years. It brought in $50.6 billion in revenue...

+Ali Muzaffar not exactly it's how the stock market works, future potential is usually priced into a stock today. So if something is demonstrated that affects future earnings potential, people go haywire and sticks correct

Wow, this has never happened before. Simply tried to send an email. It hung, so I pressed cancel and refreshed the page, only to be greeted with this message. Jeez, I hope it's only 1 hour...

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.
