Hey Developers,
To take advantage of other apps on your user's device, you need to understand Android intents, but you also need to know which types of intents will actually work! Now there's finally a document that explains which intents will work for some of the most common user actions, such as "take a picture," "view a map," "pick a phone number," and more. Check it out!

Especially when Google does it and doesn't provide updates that fix the issue.

There are all kinds of things that make Russell amazing on the field, but he's also an amazing guy off the field. This is a touching story.

And where can I get one of those Seahawks wallets?!

Awesome! I just discovered the scrub bar on the lock screen: long-press on any playback button.

Hey Android devs,
I want to point out a neat feature now on developer.android.com that improves search/navigation. If you haven't already noticed, typing in the search box now reveals suggestions for design docs, training classes, API guides, etc. But there's also an easier way to begin searching: hit the slash button /. The escape key also close search.

I've found this very useful when I'm deep in a doc and want to switch to another one I know of. I simply hit /, type a word to reveal the document I know of, then I'm there.

Hat tip to +David Chandler for the / shortcut idea.

Definitely noticed the extra nav suggestion boxes that pop up. Pretty cool effect also.

I love it when these companies align for anything, but this is particularly important.

Wow. The greater Seattle area is a fight between the west and east side. It's more or less a head-to-head between two dominating players.

There's still some green in the city, though. Let's go, Enlightenment! :)

I get that this place has a cool atmosphere, especially if you wanna hookah, but the food is worse than most pubs and stupid expensive, considering. Do not go for the food.
