"Why didn't we ship last week?" As managers, it's easy for us to blame our team for missing deadlines. But are slow developers really the reason you're not shipping on time? At Sprintly, we have a ...

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got the perfect way for you to set the mood. When you listen to Google Play Music on your Chromecast, you can display a cozy fireplace on your TV while your music plays in the background. And yes, it’s just as awesome as it sounds.

To turn this on, click the Gear icon in the upper right corner in Google Play Music on the web and select “Labs.” Find the “Chromecast Fireplace Visualizer” lab and click “enable.” Voila! Next time you cast music to your Chromecast from your phone, tablet or web player, you’ll see a crackling fire instead of album art. Get started: http://goo.gl/egn1At

So stay in, sit back, and crank up those love songs.

Like the way they tested in 'on the road' conditions. The jersey is particularly effective.

Yeah, I'm glad I have an Endura Luminite jacket (v1)for my commute now the winter is here. I think they put more reflective bits on the v2 one. I also picked up a pair of the respro ankle bands which are double sided fluro/reflective.

It'd be great if they saw this as a good time to fix Google Play movies for the Isle of Man. We can buy and rent, but can't watch! Go figure...

Many years ago I used to think that programming was easy, as the years have passed I have have realized that programming is not easy. This is due to a slow perceptual shift in what I think programming is and what it is that a programmer does. At first I though programming just involved telling a ...
