Right on. Let's hope that we don't have the monster teaching the children.

The John Adams house has a beautiful garden growing beside it, and the vines on the library are complemented by the greenery on the chimney trellis.

Finally, I have some justification for writing in a notebook. This will be good marketing material for +Livescribe

The clothing of the year 2000, imagined in 1939. As for male fashion, revealed at the end?  "If he matters at all, there won't be any shaving, collars, ties or pockets. He'll be fitted with a telephone, a radio, and containers for coins, keys, and candy for cuties." Jumpsuits and toolbelts get all the ladies.

Does this mean no web #security  updates for folks using #Android   4.0 and earlier? If so, it's yet another reason to avoid device vendors who don't provide regular #updates  -- which, sadly, is most of them. Who doesn't suck about this, besides Apple and Google (with their Nexus line)?

Supposedly it's fixed in 5.1.1. I do rather like Lollipop overall, and I make daily use of 5.0 features like Smart Lock's trusted devices and Chromebook integration, and I find it quicker than KitKat in many respects. It's just the damn memory leaks and the associated app crashes and restarts. Ugh.
