This is the point at which +Cyanogen has officially jumped the shark. I can understand not wanting to be dependent on Google for your core apps, but Microsoft? I wouldn't touch that with a 20' pole.
/me thinks a bit more about whether or not it's time to move on from my +CyanogenMod installs.

Granted, keeping your usage of GPL'd software in compliance with the terms of the license can sometimes take a bit of work, but this is a great example of how not to do it. If your code changes rely on security by obscurity, then that's another thing where "you're doing it wrong."

If you've been to the jquery.com website recently, you're probably gonna want to take some precautions, as it's been serving the RIG malware since at least the 18th. It's clear at the moment, but they still don't know how the bums got in, so...

The Guardian's moving to a new design/web-framework, starting with their mobile site."At the heart of this update is the goal to create a consistent and cohesive design language and system across all our products. You will see the first steps of the new visual style on the mobile site. The first small steps towards a new typography and colour language."

If you're interested in the underlying code, they're releasing it as open-source: https://github.com/guardian/frontend .

The new CC licenses were announced last week. Looks like some real improvements in cross-jurisdiction issues. There's also some interesting discussion and links at https://lwn.net/Articles/575077/ (still behind the LWN paywall for another day or so, but free access afterwards).

So, apparently, Google started rolling this horrible "feature" out in late June, but I only started seeing it recently. After a week or so of near seizure-inducing video previews, I went looking for a way to turn it off. No such luck. Maybe I can figure out a Greasemonkey script to hack it out of the page.

This is one of my "Google+ sucks" missives. In this case, it's more broken than it used to be. Specifically, with regards to photo album creation and sharing:


Point the 1st) It ignores your settings for how to order the images and displays them in random order.
Point the 2nd) It no longer allows you add titles/comments to a specific photo prior to sharing it. When you add a comment, it shows up as a separate post, not as part of the post/album that you originally shared.

For these reasons, I have decided to not use G+ to organize my travel photos and share them with my friends and family. This particularly makes me cranky, as I'm currently traveling abroad and the G+ photo album functionality is so clunky and unfriendly that I have given up on sharing photos until I can get home and figure out some other service to use.

Anyone have suggestions for said service? I've previously used smugmug, and been fairly happy with it, though it is a pay service.

Google Now seems obsessed with the idea of me flying to Seoul. This is the 3rd time in the last few weeks that it's decided, out of the blue, that it's time for me to head for a flight to Seoul. Maybe not a bad idea, but I don't know why it thinks that's on my schedule.
