You guys might find this a bit interesting... TIL that $eval() is 4-5x slower than eval(), and that $parse doesn't support expressions like "i++", "a -= b", etc.

True or false: there's no simple library to perform remote sync between Android and a web app (preferably using Ruby on Rails). Basically just something I can use to keep a local database in sync with a remote one via a RESTful web API.

Any thoughts?

Hey there PhoneGappers. I've got a fairly simple app I'm working on for Android and I was considering switching to PhoneGap to simplify publishing on multiple platforms. My app isn't particularly complex except for a bit of speech to text (audio recording) and photo editing (photo capture and basic markup like a pen tool). I think the former shouldn't be a problem, but the latter has me a bit concerned; has anyone here ever done a photo editing app using PhoneGap APIs? I saw that someone had written an Aviary plugin (https://github.com/cmcdonaldca/Cordova-Aviary-Plugin) which would probably suit my needs, but not if it's going to be laggy...

Jelly bean thieves!
Jelly Bean is so ridiculously hot that the JB statue overheated, and his head partially melted and popped off.

And then we think somebody stole one of the jelly beans. People: please don't steal our jelly beans.

Anyway, they've got the poor guy coned off now, for your safety but mostly for mine. But fear not, the designer is already working on a bug fix.

Sure, randomly replacing words and phrases with French doesn't actually work, but I'm still enjoying the vocabulary practice...
Learning a new language isn’t easy, especially if you can’t immerse yourself in an environment where the language is spoken.

A new extension called Language Immersion for Chrome tries to simulate being immersed in a foreign language by combining Google Translate with your normal browsing patterns. Depending on the language you select and your existing comfort level, the extension will automatically switch certain words and phrases on web pages you browse to the new language, providing a painless way to immerse yourself in a language without interrupting what you were doing online.
