Why designers/developers thought this fixed header thing was a good idea I dont think I'll ever know.

Did it just spill off the paralax sites that had to use it to present some kind of limited affordance?

Its gotten out of hand.

Its way better than the Galaxy Nexus. Which, in retrospect was a horrible phone.

The two worst phones I've owned have been Samsung phones. Never again.

I am still a little envious of the Moto X.

This is some amazing pitching motion. 9/10 pitchers cannot disguise a pitch this well.
 
The Physics of Baseball

Yu Darvish is a 26-year old pitcher from Japan. His throwing motion for different kinds of pitches is so similar, it makes it very difficult for batters to detect what's coming. (This animated GIF shows 5 pitches superimposed in one image: watch how his arm follows a similar path, but the balls go 5 different ways.)

Why is that important? According to Steve the Ump (http://goo.gl/SYoS9), a batter has 4/100th of a second to decide to swing or not. If a right-handed batter swings 1/100th of a second too soon, the ball goes foul. If the batter swings 1/100th of a second too late, the ball goes foul. So when an announcer talks about "split-second decision-making" by a batter, that's how much the second gets split.

This is great. So awesome to see Bernstein geeking out over some of the best music ever written.

You can see he can't help but smile listening to great work, regardless of whom is making it.
 
It’s fascinating to watch the famous composer/conductor look straight at the audience as he tries to make sense of what rock music was becoming, one would presume, for a “square” middle-aged audience.

If you're not thinking mobile first; you're not thinking.

How does Google not understand that people still like to use RSS? First iGoogle, now reader. 

My need to create my own RSS reader is only tempered by the hundreds of other people that are thinking about doing the same half assed job I am.

It boggles my mind as well. In the meantime, Feedly is decent.
