Can't remember if I've said this before, but https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/quick-tabs/jnjfeinjfmenlddahdjdmgpbokiacbbb is really well done and useful.

Bonus: only requests the appropriate level of permissions.
Double-bonus: it was the first result for "tab search extension", so Google is actually guiding people to the safest option.

Susan's Dropcam app upgraded to the version with more Nest integration. First thing that happened: login loop.

"The only rationale that the states put forth with any conviction—that same-sex couples and their children don’t need marriage because same sex couples can’t produce children, intended or unintended—is so full of holes that it cannot be taken seriously."

and:

"The discrimination against same-sex couples is irrational, and therefore unconstitutional even if the discrimination is not subjected to heightened scrutiny..."

Besides the great soundbites, the full opinion is really interesting reading:

I have a lot of respect for the direction Apple has gone with extensibility in iOS8:

Platform design is about balancing developer power, user safety, cost, complexity, and other competing forces.

The direction that Apple has gone with iOS8 extensions optimizes for user safety first, developer flexibility second, and cost/complexity last. That is, they chose to do a lot more work, and face developer angst, in order to keep users safe.
