That's why I went for the Nexus too. I'm running stock jellybean on here and it's awesome!

Touching post by John "Maddog" Hall where he comes out.
I briefly met him years ago, he autographed a set of Debian CDs, which I lost :(

I got a fitbit ultra! It tracks your steps taken, floors climbed calories burned and your sleep time and quality. On the website (www.fitbit.com) you can log which foods you eat to easily see your calories in vs burned. I've been using it for a full day and two nights and I'm very impressed!

Thanks to +Sherif AbdElGawad for picking it up for me.

It works really well! Unfortunately they don't seem to be available in Dubai (I'm here now), otherwise I'd pick one up for you.

This looks awesome!
Cracking open the last closed platform: the TV. A beautiful, affordable console -- built on Android, by the creator of Jambox.

True, I don't think it will take long for that to change though.

Very good video. It looks like voice search is really becoming useful.

Awesome project that I just backed, can't wait to see how it turns out.
A new documentary film about Go, the world's oldest and most compelling game - and the spread of its timeless beauty from East to West.

I like approval voting when, for example, choosing a night to go for dinner. More than one night might suit a person taking part in the poll. With approval voting they can vote for all nights that suit them.

It occurred to me that google+ comments and +1s can be used for approval voting. People can even add their own options that others can start voting for. The disadvantage is that it's not blind, in other words, people can see the vote tally as it progresses, and this can influence future voters.

Do you think google+ comments can server as polls? Like the option in the comments you agree with.

Very interesting. I've wondered about the effect of showing voting results live at our home brewing club meetings - do you know of any good research on how such information influences voters?
