Just watch it. I'm disabling comments. No time to manage yet another flame war.

People flock to what the media hypes for them. When the media focuses on Apple, so will the consumers. Media bias is a huge disservice to everyone except the few beneficiaries of it, such as Apple.
 
Was standing in a shopping centre today waiting to meet someone and I was quite close to the entrance of an Apple store. I was using my Moto 360 while standing there and then I had a bunch of people come over to ask where I got my "round-edition Apple Watch!" Someone also came out gleaming having ordered the Apple watch, took one look at my watch, asked my how much it cost then went back in and cancelled his order! It was rather amusing seeing their reactions!

Yeah, I've been paying by using Google Wallet's tap-2-pay for a couple of years now. Apple fan boys think that Apple just came up with it.

+Google​, I thought your mantra was do no evil. Why didn't you give them a two week allowance like you do everyone else? Why did you terminate his account with no warning? Do you plan on fixing this wrong? Or are you trying to emulate Apple?
 
SCR Pro got suspended and my Developer Account got terminated

In the email from Google Play I got the following information as the reason for susspension: "Violation of the dangerous products provision of the Content Policy and sections 4.3 and 4.4 of the Developer Distribution Agreement." They haven't provided any details regarding the substance of alleged violation.

Apparently the recent Google Play blog post "Developers now have more insight into why apps are rejected or suspended, and they can easily fix and resubmit their apps for minor policy violations." is just a marketing hype.

After some digging I found the following post on XDA which says that apps no longer can modify SELinux enforcing state. Apparently some developers got warnings about this issue and had two weeks to fix it. I wasn't that lucky :-(

SCR Screen Recorder root switches SELinux to permissive mode during recording as the workaround for couple bugs but it's by no mean the crucial feature of SCR. If I know that it's now considered forbidden I would have removed it.

At the moment I'm appealing and trying to restore my account.
I hope that it'll succeed so I'm not distributing APK.

In case it fails, rest assured that I'll find some way to distribute SCR Screen Recorder and that the ones who already purchased SCR Pro won't have to pay for it again.

I'm sorry that for disruptions but with this level of communication with Google Play that's best I can do!

Thanks for your continuous support!
From this day onwards, apps that Change state of SELinux are forbidden on Google Play Store. Those, who have such apps, have 14 days to fix violations or…

Soon they will start banning all root apps.

I just verified it. It's really there. Both web and mobile app, so it's in their back end servers.
 
Oh, yes they did.
Step 1. Go to this location in Google Maps. Option 2a. Enjoy. Option 2b. Cringe. We’re not sure what’s going on here, as what you see in the screenshot above should not ever make it to production software. No matter what happened (intentional Easter Egg, joke of rogue employee, some exploit or hack), it will probably be gone very soon.

I think if you don't vaccinate your children, you're most likely misinformed, but at the same time, I'd never use the force of government to strap an unwilling FREE citizen to a chair and forcibly inject something into their body. This bill will pass in California because they never seem to be concerned with individual liberty... the founding principles of our country. This will NOT end well.
Vaccine laws across the nation may be toughened, observers say, if California passes a fervently debated bill that would strip parents' rights to exempt kids from immunizations based on personal be...

What ever happened to the freedom in this country? As far as I'm concerned human beings should have the right what they take into their bodies whether it be food, medicine or whatever. I understand your concern for the population in general but you have no right to force people's hand and administer medication without consent, and I don't mean the governments' consent. The government is entirely to far reaching and honestly needs to step back on a large set of issues, this being one of them.

Let's honor the man by spelling his name right first. That's Henry T. Sampson. And by recognizing what he ACTUALLY invented And he deserves praise since he invented many things, but not the cell phone. That was Martin Cooper.
 
This man has blessed us ALL! everyone show your respects to the man who created cellphones ❤

This is the difference between knowledge vs skill

Knowledge is being told something and being able to regurgitate it. Skill is being able to aromatically implement it without concentrating. It's a result of experience or practice and your neural pathways adjust and refine themselves with each iterative attempt you make until your neutral networks eventually find an efficient algorithm to implement your intent.

This is why you can't just TELL an inexperienced driver, bike rider, guitar player, juggler, programmer, artist, computer user, etc. How to do a skill. They have to TRY and try REPEATEDLY until the neural networks in their brains have been exposed to multiple attempts and have had the opportunity to adjust and refine their algorithms.

I don't know if you remember learning to ride a bike, but when I did, I practiced and practiced and didn't seem to be making any progress until INSTANTANEOUSLY it just HAPPENED! I was astonished that suddenly the bike was staying upright. I didn't FEEL like I knew any better or that I was doing anything differently. Just suddenly the bike stopped falling down. I had a similar experience when target shooting as a 14 year old kid. The NRA instructor told us at the beginning that we'll practice and on about the third day, it'll just click and we'll be able to hit the target. On exactly the third day, that's exactly what happened with me.

So, if you have a skill and you're trying to teach someone else, don't get mad at them if they don't get it right away it even if it takes them longer. Every brain functions a little differently and no one has conscience control over those very very low level, neural functions of pattern recognition. It will happen when it happens. Additionally, if the brain has ALREADY formed a neural pattern match for a similar skill, it could take them LONGER to pick up the new skill out concept because their neural networks will have to UNLEARN the old way in order to learn the new one.

And considering "bias"... Think POLITICS!

Good Nuget package for creating Excel files

THAT DOESN'T REQUIRE EXCEL TO BE INSTALLED!!!???

Anyone know of one that preferably, is actively supported and has good documentation?

I use NPOI, and I'm not a fan. It has bugs, and reads like the direct .Net port of POI that it it. I suggest avoiding it.

Misread the title, was expecting a heroic rescue thanks to a drone, justifying the need to lessen restrictions on RC aircraft.

Instead I read about a guy who failed to properly monitor his equipment. Somewhere there is a petty FAA pencil pusher feeling vindicated.

Yes! Now, onto red light cameras. I wouldn't mind having traffic cameras at intersections, used ONLY for a video record should an accident happen. They should be on a 24 hour loop, keeping nothing beyond 24 hours unless an accident happens. And there should be NO automatic license plate detection or face detection on them... NOTHING but a video record of ONLY accidents.
NASHVILLE, April 22, 2015-- On Wednesday, the Tennessee General Assembly voted to outlaw unmanned speed cameras used to issue traffic tickets. Followed by a 29:

Work
Occupation
I design and write software as both a hobby and a profession. I write about what I love to do on my blog and here. I value my privacy and that of my family emensely which is why you won't see a lot about my personal life here. This is an interactive outlet for my blog and for me to help people solve their technology problems in a more interactive and personal way than is possible with just the blog. Google just doesn't get it.
Story
Introduction
Programming is my passion.  My current side project is building GUI front ends to many of the Linux command line utilities.  The die hards may hate me for it, but the non-geeks will appreciate it.

I cut my binary teeth on 8-bit 6502 CPUs and have been heavily involved in software development ever since.  My true love in this field is getting under the hood and programming directly on the metal, though, that's impractical for most things today.

Read these guides:
I won't be discussing politics (at least, I'll try not to) because my primary reason for participating here to discuss science and technology.  Once in a while, some bill will come up that directly affects our technology and I'll speak up on those bills.  Oh, and since G+ is a global community, I guess I should point out that I'm a U.S. citizen and the bills I discuss will almost always be U.S. bills.

If you want to know what circles to place me in, here are some suggestions:
  • Anti-SOPA, Protect IP, etc...
  • Programmer
  • Android
  • .Net
  • ASP.Net
  • ASP.Net MVC
  • WebForms
  • WinForms
  • C#
  • Linux
  • Techie
  • Science Nerd
  • Space Nut
  • Robotics

I post content on all of those topics and those are the topics I am generally interested in reading as well.

Bragging rights
Vehemently disagree with Google+'s "real names" policy! I've lived through 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit, and now 64 bit computing from the inside out. My first computer had a 1Mhz processor, 64KB of RAM and a 140KB 5.25" floppy drive, no hard drive (had never even heard of one), and with it I had to walk up hill to school in 6 feet of snow, bar foot, BOTH WAYS and I liked it! My current computer has 4 2.4Ghz processors, 8GB RAM, 6TB of hard drive space and my phone is 800 times faster than that first computer and has more than 252,265 times as much RAM as my first computer and neither has enough space nor is fast enough and my kids get their homework assignments online and have never seen a record player. [Edit] We were cleaning out my parents' garage and now they've finally seen one!

Really, really good pizza, bread sticks, and sauce. Place is very clean, well lit, and clean. Did I say it was clean? It was very clean. I ate here MANY times the few times I stayed in Norwell.

Kind of run down. Rooms smelled funny. Front office is across the street and down the road. Wi-fi was very weak. It's not the worst place and will do in a pinch, but I'd recommend finding another place. Two buildings. One on the beach where the office is, the other (the one we got placed in) was down the road and across the street.

Food was good, but service was unbelievably bad. First, I ordered for my daughter, asking that they put things in separate dishes. We got 1 dish with all the greens, and a bowl with the chicken, rice, and pinto beans all in it. When I went back and asked them to serve it in separate dishes, like I asked, and she got all bent out of shape. Next, right after we got our food and began eating, one of the workers asked if he could shut down the salsa bar (which I planned on using throughout the meal... the main reason I went there). So I stocked up on chips and salsa and let him shut it down. Then they started sweeping the floors around us, then shut off the A/C when it was 100 degrees outside. Then shut off the music. Then when my son went to get a to go box for my Mother, (he only needed one), she walked away before he could ask. My nephew went up there and cleared his throat really loud. She came back and he asked for a to go box. She grabbed 1 styrofoam box and told him that's all she could give him, from a shelf of about 100 or so there. He wasn't even asking for more than one, but nice to know we weren't welcome to more if we needed them. Don't go here if you expect customer service of any kind above -5. We will not be back.

I've had no problems at this store, but their credit card is now useless... Best Buy transitioned their RewardZone cards over to Citi, who is so woefully incompetent that: 1. They don't have the ability to download transactions into Quicken. 2. They still give the long ago dead QIF file format, which CANNOT be imported into a credit card account in Quicken. 3. Their "spreadsheet" download is just a text file (tab delimited) with a ".xls" file extension... NOT a spreadsheet file... NOT an Excel file... NOT an actual XLS files. It's been this way since August of 2013. Every time I call, they say they're "thinking" about adding Quicken support. OK, so I'm NOT thinking about manually entering all of these transactions, but I AM thinking about canceling this card. At least my HHGregg card account can download into Quicken.

A fairly dirty place, kind of run down, pool area was in disrepair and completely not useable, and unseemly characters walking around. Stay here only if you're in dire straights and have no where else to go. Keep your doors locked and sleep with your gun under your pillow. Room smelled funny (not a good funny). The girl behind the counter was very nice.
