This is the best commentary on Material Design that I have seen. As a developer with a background in usability engineering, I am glad to see Google make these refinements. It's not just designer-speak about colors and animations. I think that it's a very useful set of guidelines that simplicity includes a strategy for coping with differences between different displays and environments. Also, I prefer designs with strong gestalts and visual cues, which are often lacking in other flat designs. 
Two days ago, Google revealed its next generation “Material” design language —  a departure from past guidelines and a clear reaction to design trends made popular by Apple and Microsoft.

Android keyboard tip that I wish I had known sooner: the "." key next to the space bar can be held to access all the most commonly used punctuation. So, now I hit the "?123" mode key much less often.

Surprise: Wendy's is actually really good.

Near where I live there is a Five Guys, In-n-Out of course, and several burger-centric restaurants like Islands and The Counter. I went to the opening of a new one called The Habit, but the line was super-long. So, I walked across the parking lot to Wendy's. My expectations were low because I remembered Wendy's from years ago. Well, it turned out to be totally delicious, fast, and uncrowded. It not only exceeded expectations, it was flat-out good. So, now a few months later, when I have a choice of burger places, Wendy's is actually my favorite.

Wendy's is always good and hardly anyone in there.

This looks awesome.
The coolest thing at Google I/O this year isn't a cheap tablet or a pair of overpriced glasses or even a killer keyboard.

This is my second time ever missing Google I/O.  Seeing the photos of the after hours party really makes me feel that I am missing a lot of fun. I was even at the first Google Developer Days that preceded the first I/O.  However, the streaming of the keynotes is awesome,  and I am getting a lot of work done instead.

I love today's doodle. Did you notice anything below the search buttons?

As you turned it with your mouse, the shadow under the Search buttons also moved.

Also, I read that if you viewed it in chrome on a laptop that has an accelerometer, it would move when you tilted the laptop.
