I'd liked working at my old job because the employees got to bring home all the unsold baked goods. Didn't buy bread all summer.
 
Ugh, socialism. 
Supermarkets in France have been banned from throwing away or spoiling unsold food by law. The stores are now required to donate unwanted food to charities and food banks. To stop foragers, some supermarkets have poured bleach over the discarded food or storing binned food in locked warehouses.

The Trouble with the TPP series continues with IP enforcement and border measures provisions, which are illustrative of Jim Balsillie's concern about Canada's failure to set its own IP policy. Yesterday's post noted that the U.S. demanded that Canada provide a report card every six months on its customs activities, meet on the issue whenever the U.S. demands, and face the possibility of a dispute settlement complaint for failing to comply with th...

Rumour mill be rumouring but I like this one. A pixel phone would be so nice, and hopefullyiGoogle starts cracking the app whip, or starts giving users more consistent battery.
 
Google rumored to take Apple-like control over the Nexus line

Hey, I'm all for it. I love the Nexus line, pure Google, you can't beat it.

Google has long left manufacturers to their own devices over the years when it comes to the Nexus line. HTC, Samsung, LG and Motorola have all had a substantial say in the design and manufacturing of the hardware. That could change very soon.

The latest Nexus phones have been well supported since the Nexus 4. Still love my Nexus 5 - fully capable after a few years. Curious to see how Huawei support works out. But yeah, a Pixel phone would be sexy. I think Google's learned enough through the Nexus program to go out on their own now.

Impressive to see such a large rebranding from a well established brand 
In place of Uber’s signature black, gray, and blue color palette, the company will embrace bright colors---lots of them.

Jesus. Buying a usb cable is no longer just buying a cheap cable.
 
Hi everyone. The cable reviews are going to slow down a little bit due to an incident that happened with one cable...

A cable managed to destroy my test equipment, including my $1499 Pixel 2. I've done an analysis of the failure, and it's a really bad mistake they made.

Needless to say, I am very unhappy, and this is going to affect how quickly I get through cables and other accessories in the short term since my computer is dead.

Oh that's rich.
 
... unethical, immoral, mendacious coven of techie wannabes at a for-profit...

Funny, those would be the words I'd use to describe the online advertising industry.

Hangouts 7.0 is here! This is not a troll.

Stuff we've found so far:
- Quick reply in notification shade.
- "Save to Home screen" shortcut for quickly starting a conversation with a specific contact or group.
- Hangouts will now show a blurb about using Messenger for SMS on first run.
- Sharing dialog is no longer Holoyolo.
- Checkboxes are now toggles (moar Material).

Edit: No Direct Share in this release.

When you wear glasses and the wind whips in behind the lens and hits you faster
 
My eyes when they detect the slightest hint of a cold breeze...
