This just keeps getting more amazing. 
Now we know that almost none of the woman in the Ashley Madison database ever used the site. The question is, was this a deliberate fraud? Or was it just a dating site gone wrong?

This is just amazing. Spends his time preaching family values, goes online looking for a little something on the side. Oh, also molested his sisters. What a winner this guy is. 
In 2013, conservative reality TV star Josh Duggar—of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting fame—was named the executive director of the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying group in D.C. which seeks “to champion marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society.” During that time, he also maintained a paid account on Ashley Madison, a web site created for the express purpose of cheating o...

I was going to do the review, so this has opened a rather large hole in my schedule. I guess I'll take more naps next week. 
 
Not entirely unexpected, but still a bit surprising. +OnePlus just broke up with us over +David Ruddock's editorial.

No more review units, no invite giveaways that I promised you guys, and likely no further communication (though I hope they at least respond to technical questions).

I'm glad respecting editorial integrity and reception to criticism is high on their list of values. But remembering that part about respect at the end of http://andp.lc/1h9bXjO title, I shouldn't be surprised.

+Ryan Whitwam​ that could have been hilariously awkward. What they should have done is overnighted a review unit. Try to back up their claims and make David eat his words. But I guess they didn't believe in their 2016 flagship killer that much.

This is stupid on many levels. Just for starters, we're talking about a society with no money.

Why you need comments
I swear The Verge turned off comments because they were tired of getting yelled at for screwing up posts like this.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/22/9013455/sony-android-concept-xperia-z3-software-preview

"The goal, says Sony, is to develop new software "from the ground up," meaning no Google Play Services or superfluous apps, just the core Google communications software and Sony's stack of custom apps like Camera, Music, and Xperia Lounge."

The second half of this sentence contradicts the first. You can't have Google apps without Google Play Services—they wouldn't work. Also releasing Android without Google Play Services would be in violation of the "anti-fragmentation clause" in their MADA contract and Google would pull their Google Play license.  

They don't even link to the actual Sony blog post so people can get the correct information. (it's here: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/07/22/launching-sonys-concept-for-android-initiative-in-sweden/ )

IF The Verge had comments turned on, this post would be getting ripped to shreds. Now they can misinform people in peace.

+Karl Smith Oh, I've been there. A lotta folks just wanna shift the blame.

By the way... still a social construct.

This is a OnePlus 2 that has been installing apps for a few minutes. I have no further comment. 

Note: this isn't an AP review unit, it's for The Wirecutter, where I also write things.

Still cooler than the S6 Edge, but hotter than the M9, G4 and Droid Turbo. All the OnePlus was doing was installing apps? I'm guessing a benchmark loop would push it beyond the S6 Edge. What's do you say +Ryan Whitwam?

This is ridiculous and so, so cringy. This movie isn't done filming yet. These kids probably have no idea who these actors are. Just feels like a ridiculous PR stunt. Also... Ghostbusters in a hospital where people are dying. I mean, if you're busting ghosts, might as well go to the source, right? 
On Saturday, the main cast of Paul Feig's Ghostbusters took a day off from filming the reboot to visit the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical

Yeah, seems very offensive and so, so stupid.  Movie will tank too.  Poor kid might die and couldn't have gotten a visit from a movie cast he/she might just know.

I was annoyed within 20 minutes of playing. There are ways to do in-app purchases that don't suck, but this is not one of those ways.

I find that some of the common armor in The Witcher 3 looks weird, but most of the crafted Witcher gear is awesome. Finally made the mastercrafted wolven gear, and it looks really neat.

Agreed. I'm on Enhanced Cat gear. Shit is legit. I'm thinking on my next playthrough, I'll go for a signs build.

One of the comments on the new Witcher 3 patch announcement. This guy's really getting to the heart of the gameplay. 

Update: The patch raises the level requirement for a lot of items. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck that.
