Just signed up for Google Contributor. Either it’s cutting edge stuff or I’m a sucker. We’ll see...

UPDATE: I’ll give Google Contributor this, the function to see a photo of your choice instead of banners? Genius. I now see Morrissey instead of ads

Attended an advance screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron - I don't want to spoil it for anyone - but I enjoyed it, it was very good.  Specific details to be discussed after you all see it this weekend.

That said, this is James Spader's world, we're just living in it.

Oh and Twitters is really a big enough company you'd think they can release on all the major platforms at once. I wonder it's that fact that it's easier to do staged roll-outs on Android (I've heard) so test it there first?

Here's a shot in the dark:

I assume many of my followers here on Google+ have an interest in tech.I have a few app ideas I've been tinkering with that I would like to move forward on.

Are there any developers out there who would be interested in potentially working with me?

Looking for someone who can do light front end (Don't need a designer yet), and heavy back end. Not too specific about platform, so open to PHP, Ruby on Rails, or Python. 

Get in touch with me by e-mailing me via my about.me/ronxo page - let me know what you do and some links to your work.

UPDATE - the problem isn't blackout restrictions, rather the MLB At Bat app isn't working with Chromecast. I can get the game video to stream on the tablet as well as the desktop. I'm now casting the tab with the video from my browser, so watching the game and all is well. Hopefully they fix the chromecast function soon.

Annual post about how much I hate +FOX Sports and the +MLB and their dumb blackout rules. As a PAYING customer of +MLB TV there should be NO reason why I can't watch the +New York Mets / Yankees game on the app and Chromecast right now.  

It's 2015 - this is ridiculous that this is still a problem

Mets kick Yankee Ass!  Harvey almost goes 9 (not sure I agree with Terry's decision to keep him in there).  Go for the series win in today's rubber game.  LETS GO METS!

Can't believe I didn't post this earlier...a few weeks back I was joined by my best friends and iFanboy co-founders to moderate A Spotlight on Darwyn Cooke at WonderCon - we recorded it for you to watch and enjoy - get some indepth talk with one of comics most talented people (Darwyn, not us)

Wow you're going to be the editor of the next Darwyn Cooke title, congratulations.

It seems crazy how different mediums work, I have books on my shelf with your name printed on it then there are all the podcasts you've done.  It's weird to think how you're known to such disparate audiences.
