This is giving me flashbacks to Tech Committee meetings I was privilege to a few years ago at the public  school district where I work. :-|
 
The "Simple Sabotage Field Manual," put out by the OSS (the CIA's predecessor) in 1944, is a wonderful source of tips and techniques for anti-management. What's particularly brilliant is that revealing these methods can be even more destructive than concealing them: consider what happens when every time someone does something stupid and inefficient, the response is for people to wonder if that person is actually a saboteur. (The answer, by the way, is "The Joys of Stalin," and is why Russia almost lost WWII: he had spent the 1930's purging everyone that he didn't trust, which is to say, basically everyone who knew anything)

But if you're willing to accept that the people around you might just be idiots, and not actively planning your overthrow, then the pamphlet is a short and surprisingly amusing read. You can see the whole thing at https://www.cia.gov/news-information/featured-story-archive/2012-featured-story-archive/simple-sabotage.html .

So is Obama an idiot or a saboteur? Either one is applicable.

"Bug fixes and performance improvements" is less than helpful Google, you can do better.
Seriously, you might as well say "yo dawg, we heard you like updates, so we updated your updates!"

Does this irk anyone else?

Back in the day... Fixed bugs were enumerated with pride.
Now it's like they think that if they admit to fixing specific bugs we'll be mad that those bugs existed in the first place.

This video series presents an interesting take on songwriting, from nothing to demo.
 
I started a YouTube series where I write a song from scratch. I show the process starting with nothing and take it up to the point of recording a demo.

Nice option. 
For a few $s more, Monoprice has Premium Over Ear headphones that are rather good! http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=8323

Proposal
Require app authors to provide a link to an online change log.  Have that link automatically appear at the bottom of "What's New" section.

Are we all in agreement on this?  Great!  Now... who has the phone number for the manager of +Google Play ?

Fast and friendly service. Comfortable environment. Good food. Tasty drip coffee. The latte foam is FAR from micro, and adds nothing good. Not a good place to get a classic drink. Syrups are all low quality. Also WiFi costs a dollar!
