The continued removal of features and fragmentation of Google Chat experiences is very close to driving me away from their chat platform. Hangouts used to be so awesome when it was one client to rule them all... I didn't have to worry about if someone used MSN, Yahoo, AOL, or Facebook for chat... Google Talk did that... then at least they didn't completely remove XMPP bridge support... then they separated SMS and hangout conversations... so I had multiple conversations with each person... and now... now they are removing SMS and cutting off XMPP. I need to find a new chat experience on Android.

This is interesting... If you look at foreclosures per year, we are just getting back to 2006 levels of foreclosures. In a way that means we didn't really recover from the housing crisis until 2016. I bet Trump will claim he has something to do with the 2017 foreclosure numbers because it will probably be relatively low.

With one vote, your browsing history can be the property of advertisers. I think the government's lack of interest in privacy for American citizens is disturbing. I wonder if this will increase public interest in tor? Maybe it will even drive development of a newer and better privacy measure (more like a distributed anonymous VPN.)

If 50,000 people say they like bears... then we can reintroduce and possibly save the North Cascade Grizzly bear population... The Oatmeal raised the money... they he just needs your comments.

it's true... I had a n easier time than many people. (Thanks Mom and Dad!) I try not to take it for granted, but at the saem time, I did overcome my fair share of obstacles. From poor teachers, to leaving the nest for a place I literally knew nothing about (not even the location until I decided I was going...) However, I had great parents, an awesome family, good friends, and a wealth of experiences that gave me an edge against many less fortunate people.

This is a pretty good piece of advertising...

I sure do love our new IKEA! It's way better than the old one, and the restaurant has espresso makers! Also, the warehouse section is way cooler with the super high ceiling! Anyway... I like it more.

Count me in... The guy is a complete moron, and makes us all look bad. I might just say I'm from Canada next time I have to talk to foreigners...
