It appears the the lefthand button on my mouse has stopped working.  I think this one died of natural causes, but wow, what a prank that would be to pull on someone.

This article misses a key point.  They really need to directly compare Bond's reaction Sévérine's death to his reaction to a certain automobile's death.  For the record, Sean Connery would never have let that happen!

Dear Google+,  When I edit a limited share, why can I not expand who the post is shared with without re-sharing?  Re-sharing breaks the continuity of comments. Please fix.  

If the issue is just that new people shouldn't see existing comments then fine, hide from Alice comments made before she was added and discretely toss a "Alice will see future comments on this share" into the comment stream.  Honestly, I think it is more reasonable to trust the original sharer with the privacy of the comments on the share.

It would be very nice if #Pandora  played a tone or reminder when it goes into its "are you listening" state.

I had an amazing chocolate chip cookie baking accident yesterday that will probably forever change how I bake cookies.  First, I accidentally shorted the recipe oats.  This caused the cookies to flatten into a sprawling layer on the silicone sheets rather than stay together as cookies.  I took this out of the oven (thinking it was a failure) and set it aside. When I did this, the cookie layer was quite a bit thiner than the chocolate chips, and parts of it were crispy while other parts were still doughy. On a whim, after the cookie layer had cooled, I scooped it up, rolled it into balls, and stuck it back in the oven. The resulting cookies have a variegated texture and color and held their shape, probably because parts of the dough already had structure from the first bake.

You know you have been writing too much java when;

Dear #news.google.com:  In following with your corporate mission to organize the world's information and make it generally useable, please learn how to detect and label "opinion" articles vs "news" articles.  This should not rely on metadata from sources as so many "reputable" news sources are labeling it all "news" these days.  It looks bad when the top highlighted "news" headline is actually an extremely partisan opine (from either persuasion) trying to pass itself off as news.
