This is crazy: almost every brand in the consumer food/drink/candy industry is owned by a few gigantic companies.

Okay, so BASICALLY some envirogranolas are blasting what might be one of THE most effective ways of controlling the clusterfuck we created.

Want an example of a bad app for Android? Look no further: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.inove.localapi

Custom elements. No recognition to tell if you've tapped something. No visual hierarchy. Full screen ads with no obvious way to clear them. Gingerbread-era system elements.

And to top it off, the developer has paid for the 5* reviews on Google Play.

Some fun with tonight's fireworks. These were taken by quickly adjusting the focus from blurry to (hopefully) sharp over the course of a 1 second exposure. 

I like how some of them look like sea anemones and some look like something from a scanning electron microscope.

This could also run Android apps on laptops fairly nicely :)
 
Android Needs A Simulator, Not An Emulator

"A simulator is a shim that sits between the Android operating system runtime and the computer’s running operating system. It bridges the two into a single unit which behaves closely to how a real device or full emulator would at a fraction of the overhead."

"There always will be a need for a proper emulator for acceptance testing your application in an environment that behaves exactly like a device. For day-to-day development this is simply not needed. Developer productivity will rise dramatically and the simplicity through which testing can now be done will encourage their use and with any luck improve overall app quality."
