What's the distribution of U.S. pro-sport uniform numbers?  It's not a "uniform distribution" :)

Very few, if not zero, of my friends have had their gmail accounts hacked.  But almost all of my friends with yahoo accounts have been hacked.  

I'm guessing it's because Google takes security seriously including things like this change to forced HTTPS on gmail: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/03/staying-at-forefront-of-email-security.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FMKuf+%28Official+Google+Blog%29

24 was a bit too dramatic and violent for me. But for some reason I just thought of this video. Now I can't get the song out of my head. "Ore wa Jya-ku Bawa"

One of Android's best features is knowing what access the app is requesting. Being able to truly sandbox even apps that request bogus permissions is practically the only solution, because people just download the app anyway.

If I want say, a timer app, thats written by a company I trust, and it has five star reviews, I want to install it regardless of whether it wants network access. But having the ability from an OS level to deny network access to the app would be awesome. And apparently it was a 4.3 feature.

I can imagine it was removed because it makes in-app advertisements broken, since in-app ads generally want to target your location (GPS) and use the network to serve a specific ad.

Personally, I would rather have a paid ad-free app than a free ad-supported app. But I have plenty of friends that are completely opposed to paying just $1 for any app.
 
This is sad.

With all the posturing Google has done over the NSA stuff, and having encouraged people to sign the petition to require a warrant for email snooping (which I heartily agree with), this just makes Google look hypocritical.

They're literally explaining common grammar errors.

I really like the illustration of 'there', 'here', and 'where' with a common ending. That's a great way to explain it to people.

Got a Nexus 5 on T-Mobile after the third month of +$80 in overage charges from AT&T on my frustratingly slow iOS7 iPhone 4.

First, the Nexus is so much better than my first android Droid Charge. Samsung really messed up on that one. And the KitKat OS is fantastic. Especially because I already use all the Google services. I'm just shocked at how slow the inputs and loading times of iOS7 that I had gotten used to.

Second, T-Mobile is just doing so many things right besides the awesome price. Like giving me a loan for the phone and telling me how much I am paying it off instead of putting me in a "contract" with a bogus cancelation fee that has nothing to do with the phone cost. Plus they didn't install bloatware. Included a paid return label in the package just in case. And even offered the Nexus as an option in the first place.

T-Mobile's activation process was less than smooth. After three calls and multiple transfers I got sent back to sales and had to give them my info again despite already doing all that online. If they charge me twice I'm going to be angry, but they repeatedly assured me that it was normal. And the moron suggested I get a new number instead of transferring because it could take 24 hours. Not even when I upgraded to a Nokia 8210 in the 90's did it take longer than 5 minutes to transfer. He probably gets some kind of extra commission for new lines instead of transfers.

But in spite of all that, I really like T-Mobile now. AT&T just kept doing things to push me away. I even tried to sign up for prepaid unlimited, but they said they couldn't transfer my number... on their own network. So I finally left.

Thanks +Pearl Chen for teaching me that Nexus is the way to go: https://plus.google.com/108076675731922659261/posts/4cap1n9QLaN

Here's a video of a game prototype my friend and I made last weekend for Ludum Dare 28.  There's a short play and then a time-lapse of my side of the development.

We used Unity3D.
