Is it just me, or do other people think the new play music icon looks like a Dorito too?

My thoughts on the Revolv Internet of Things fiasco. There are answers. They are open source and open standards.

We've already migrated to gcm, but we still have users on versions of or app that are using c2dm. So when this gets turned off we WILL have existing registrations on or server that are c2dm . I would like to know if we need to disable the send attempts from our server before the c2dm services are turned off, or if we get some sensible error message we we try to send and we can just let the messages fail.

10% of respondents self-identified as Ninjas. Real ninjas don’t tell you they’re ninjas. They just sneak up on you and slit your throat, which we're pretty sure constitutes a "hostile workplace environment".

Guess I'll start the witch hunt for apps that use location and don't really need it. Thanks.

This is a funky mix of tunes.
What if the harpsichord from the 1770s hit headlong into the talk...
