This Ashley Madison hack is just incredible: http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/08/ap-ashley-madison-subscribers-included-hundreds-of-government-employees/
Sit back and grab some pop-corn.

Also, I didn’t know this about USA defense laws:

Well worth considering these ideas in any male-dominated workplace, regardless of industry:

+Android Developers the Android SDK Manager, at least on OS X, seems unnecessarily CPU-heavy whilst downloading and installing components

Here's a quick look at why the iPad (and Android tablets) may be losing momentum: http://ignorethecode.net/blog/2015/08/14/ipad_consumption_device/
What are these tablets best at?

I'm very curious about the multi-tasking changes coming to the newest iPads with iOS 9 (and possibly with Android M or N). Will these be enough to renew interest? Can the tablet claw back some territory from convertible laptops whilst defending its flank against phablets?

If you use a lock screen pattern on your Android, try to involve cross-overs, and make them as long as you can remember:
http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/08/new-data-uncovers-the-surprising-predictability-of-android-lock-patterns/
Something I hadn't really thought about: there are as many unique 8-point patterns as there are 9-point patterns.
Like "p@$$w0rd" and "1234567" many Android patterns are easy to guess.

You've heard of "technical debt", but have you heard of "empathy debt"?

In product analytics help you understand how people actually use your product so you can better prioritize development to deliver more value, faster.

Introduction
I'm a technology enthusiast, and I believe fiercely in open source.
I describe myself on Twitter as a "JavaScript jockey, Google fan, Android apologist". I admire hardware designed by Apple and Sony, although Google and Microsoft tend to have much better online services.

I find software development very satisfying, with web technology being particularly fast-paced and exciting.

Decent service, but I would have felt like a valued customer if staff followed up. Why don't they want more of my money?

This might be the best Japanese cuisine in Gosford, and perhaps even the whole Central Coast.
