Very important work!  To work on this and more, my research says that getting a Nexus 4 is better than basically any other phone, partially because of the slimport, and partially because it has 2GB of RAM while the available, new Ubuntu Phones -- the two BQ phones -- have just 1GB.

Do you agree?  Thank you!

Thank you so much for these write-ups! They save me a ton of time :-), even compared to watching the videos at 1.5x speed. I am very excited about Ubuntu Phone and this makes it feasible to keep up with its developments.

Imagine having a tablet you can connect a monitor and keyboard to and have it turn into a full desktop! Coming along nicely! #UbuntuPhone

The GitHub Linker Chrome extension is pretty handy for reading code on GitHub. It makes `require` statements clickable.

Analysis by +Paul Irish of Reddit Mobile's rendering performance

The TL;dr is: The "The DOM is slow, virtual DOM is fast" meme is somewhere between misleading and wrong. Doing any kind of extensive work in JavaScript during page load will kill you and JS size is still important.

Interesting, but since you only drive your car 920 miles per year, I'm not surprised that taking Uber or Lyft is cheaper.  The average person drives about 10x that much (source: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/onh00/bar8.htm) so I'm not sure how well your conclusion will apply to others.

It is cheaper for me to live downtown and be within walking distance to places, and take Lyft or public transit the rest of the time, and have my personal assistant do things that are a pain in the ass to do without having a car, like buying groceries.
