Had some problems getting my Samsung Galaxy 4 (Google Play edition, GT-I9505G) to connect to a Windows 8 laptop with USB Debugging mode. Couldn't find drivers, etc. Pain in the ass. I fixed it after much effort. Since I didn't find good instructions in searching, posting the solution to help others:

First, enable developer mode on the phone. To do this, go to Settings->About Phone, then tap the Build Number 7 times. This enables the Developer Options menu and lets you turn on USB Debugging and all that.

To get it recognized by Windows 8, do this:

1. Install Kies. Works fine on Windows 8 and you need it for the drivers. Make sure you tell it to install the drivers during the installation, even though it suggests you don't need them: http://www.samsung.com/us/kies/

2. Reboot, then plug in the phone.

If the phone still isn't recognized and shows up in the Device Manager as "Samsung_ANDROID", then do this:

3. Unplug the phone again. Then, on the phone, dial *#0808# to get to the screen that lets you adjust the USB modes directly.

4. Select "AP" and "MTP + ADB" as the settings. Save.

5. Plug the phone in again, and it should find and install the correct drivers.

After this, the phone should be recognized as a Media device (MTP = Media Transfer Protocol) and the USB debugging will work with Chrome (ADB = Android Debug Bridge).

+Szandor Xint With more and more companies trying to hide settings screens and what not, this sort of thing isn't all that surprising. You have to jump through hoops that normal users would not find in order to enable dev-mode functionality. Turning on dev-mode on my Chromebook involved finding the hidden physical switch on the device. :)

It actually snowed. Didn't expect that. Not much though, more of a dusting.

#googleplusupdate

Why is there not an option to allow me to turn off notifications for people who "added you to their circles"?

I don't care who added me to their circles.
I don't want to know about that in any way whatsoever.
I don't even want to see that in the alarm-bell dropdown.

This one piece makes Google+ Notifications completely useless, because it's nothing but endless spam of crap I don't care about and cannot make go away.

Google+ is nice, but these little usability features make it a very hard-sell. Right now it's just another stream for spammers to infiltrate, and they're doing just that. Cut this crap off at the pass, Google.

Had some good Great Lakes beers tonight, and had to find a "dive" bar to get me some PBR. Amazingly good burger at the dive bar though. :)
