Hello G+, it has been awhile since I've used this service, but I quit Facebook so I'm checking you out again. Much more refined experience here than last time.

Google Devs: if an Android phone can't stay on the network, what is the point of having a Google phone in the first place? This is the most disappointing experience I have ever had with a phone and I want answers.

Sorry +Chris Chabot for tagging you here, you're the only one I know at Google who I follow. PLEASE forward this on to the appropriate person(s).

Working with my carrier we seem to have narrowed this down to K9 Mail, which is an Android 2 app which will run on Android 4 but probably should not. It was the only non-Google app that auto-starts in the background on my device. The carrier was getting all the http and DNS requests and serving them but the phone refused to acknowledge the requests. Seems to be related to a difference between how versions 2 and 4 handle idle state and restoring network connections.

Had no idea it was so simple to setup your own "search engine plugins" in Chrome. WordReference is now even easier to use!

Check the video that was taken down at the end of this post. MegaUpload owns all the rights but Universal Music used their censorship powers to shut it down. 3, 2, 1, lawsuit!

Congrats Omar!
 
It's official. I just signed a contract with Acquia. :-)

Considering my background and history, I can't help but feel as though I'm bucking a few trends by doing this. But at the end of the day, this job represents a exciting new challenge which I hope will allow me to grow as a person and contribute more meaningfully to the tool and community that I have loved for over a decade.

(By the way, if ever you've thought of working for Acquia, let me know... I might be able to help.)

I put the final touches on my last two Drupal 6 + Übercart stores this week. The future is Drupal Commerce folks, and here's why.

Over the past few years I've hit many walls with Übercart and this article does a good job of pointing out where the sore points are and how they have been addressed.

If you are a retailer, this may be of interest as it discusses workflows for e-commerce stores and the reasoning behind it.

So I guess "Interaction Designer" would be what I most often need. I've thought about this "what kind of designer" thing a lot. I'm glad to see someone is talking about it.

Great tips on how to think about hiring a designer/UX person from my buddy +Braden Kowitz.
