So...Bubble Island is leaving G+ on July 1st.  I wonder what the financial aspect of that is - how much they pay to have the game on here, etc.  Because it's pretty much the only game I play on G+ these days, and I'm kinda disappointed to see it go.

Candy Dash.  I hated it the first time i played; I wanted to slap the the little cartoon princess.
But somehow, the prospect of shooting happy smiley kawaii Jello molds and cupcakes....it grows on you.  (And it's a bit more difficult than I expected.)

Irony - using Google to find out just what the "A Google A Day" game is about.

More amused when Google Chrome tells me it can't find Google.

And my morning dream has me wondering - if you were to spend an entire semester (or even quarter) studying only one book in a classroom setting, what book would you choose? Presume a stereotypical prejudice by the professor against genre fiction.

Has anyone else noticed that Yahoo Mail seems to suffer extreme memory leakage since the latest incarnation of Chrome was released?  Or is it just me?

Had an experience of why Apple continues to build personal loyalty, while Android continues to struggle to win the hearts and minds of non-geeks...

Customer at work has purchased a Coby Kyrios tablet.  Seems nice enough - capacitive touch, 7" screen, running Ice Cream Sandwich.  Except that Coby, for whatever reason, has either chosen not to allow access to Google Play/Android Marketplace, or has made accessing it so complicated that they may as well not have.  Said customer had downloaded some games that required Adobe Air, which, for whatever reason, he couldn't install on his tablet - it kept installing on his Android phone instead. 

Contrast that with Apple, which: A) provides a centralized point of customer service and B) maintains minimum standards, so that things "just work".  You don't have to rootkit your iPad to install apps from the Apple store.  You don't even generally need to install apps that aren't in the App store - at least not if you're a "regular" user.

So, yeah, Android may be the choice of geeks and hackers everywhere, but the same celebrated openness can be a user support nightmare, especially in a world rife with the expectations of the "open marketplace" that everyone says Android has.

Thanks. I guess I've just been to lazy to look it up.

My search terms: Cosmopolitan sex tips collection parody
My results: At the bottom of page one, a link to "Singin' in the Rain" on filmsite.org, because apparently "Cosmo Brown" the character = "Cosmo" the magazine.

Well played...not exactly, although I can pretend to understand the reasoning.

Still trying to find the "X-thousand collected Sex Tips" parody I saw a while back.

With the June elections, the new US Rep, Assembly and State Senate districts are using the new layouts mandated by whichever prop it was that created a new committee to come up with the district lines.

Your US Rep may have changed (mine did). Your state reps may well have changed (I think my state Senator did), but I admit, I'm not sure who my current one is. (I do know my Assemblyman, and I know that hasn't changed.)

So double-check your ballot. I don't think this issue has received as much publicity as it should. (Or maybe I've been oblivious. I don't deny that as a possibility.)

My precinct is in a weird intersection of congressional, assembly and school districts. With fewer than 250 registered voters, I get mail-in ballots a lot, like this time.
