Could you help with testing some potential designs for IRS information?

Please pick a number between 1 and 3 and then just try one of the following designs. It should take 10-15 minutes. Thank you!

Option 1:

Option 2:

Option 3:

A friend made a Google form and then deleted the form later. He still has the link, but since the form has been deleted, he can't access the form or retrieve the data from the form for his research.

If a form has been deleted, is there still some way to get to the data that was created by the form?

I'd really like to see the functionality of this Chrome application integrated into Gmail. End-to-end encryption is something that I strongly believe should be supported. Just my personal opinion.

You can get adb with less hassle now!
Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.

This site makes it easy to vote + remind your friends to vote!

Make sure you vote today! I really like because you can find your polling place, but you can also find your friends in important states and remind them to vote. Go ahead and give a friend in Florida or Pennsylvania a poke!

Post has attachment is a good site for California, Illinois, and New York voters looking to understand their ballot. It's by the folks who do MapLight (non-partisan site dedicated to money in politics), so you can see who is funding various things on the ballot.

To register to vote, this is a good site.

How to get back stories to read in Google Now

A while ago I got a bad source in my Google Now story cards. I clicked in the three dots in the top right of that story and ended up clicking "Never show stories to read" (like in the screenshot) but that radically reduced the number of stories I see in Google Now.

To bring it back, click the three dots again, select "Customize Google Now" and look for the "Everything else" item at the bottom of Now preferences. Look for an item called "Interested in getting recommendations from around the web?" and change it to yes.

For February, I'm not reading news or social media.

Is there anything that you've always dreamed about doing? Why not try it on for size with your own fun 30 day challenge this month?
