I guess this explains years of Apple-loving at the Verge.
Reporter Chris Ziegler took a new gig at Apple, but neglected to quit his job as a tech reporter at The Verge.

After some thought about this, as well as watching TWiT this past Sunday, I feel perhaps this is a mental illness issue and we (meaning I) have no business commenting on it.

This is something very important. And by the way, finally, a kickstarter for something I didn't pull a face at! Think of places like California, the middle east, Israel, Australia etc. They would all benefit for something like this. Come to think of it, I would like a shower outfitted with a number of these atomizing nozzles at different heights along the body!

Perhaps this new approach will shame the rest of us regarding the amount of water falling through our hands as we wash them on a regular faucet. It could slowly become the new - best way - to wash hands. First in large institutions, then in corporate washrooms and public buildings, then to the home. I do agree that we don't just do one thing with a faucet (as Randy pointed out) but it is a start for some of the most egregious waste of clean water.

If Android OEMs were just that, original equipment manufacturers, their jobs would be much simpler and easier. But in the modern smartphone world, it’s not enough to just design and build new...

Anyone noticed a slow down in the IP TV downloads or at the very least the amount of time it takes to start the download or is my Roku flaking out?

How about a UGEI Breeze vertical axis wind turbine? How do you handle waste? Nice video. Need some of your colleagues to invest and set up this place on the Salton Sea 99915 Sea View Drive Mecca California for fully accessible sailing. Send me an E mail and I have a pdf to send back which is registered with Raul Ruiz CA 36th U S Congress.

Passing thought:

1) If the powers that be said that nobody could go anywhere without carrying identity papers at all times , there would be a mighty outcry of revolt.
2) If they said that all people should be implanted with an identity chip, all hell would break loose.

And yet, voluntarily, we carry a mobile phone with us at all times that does exactely that, and has GPS also.

The difference, is the phone has a value add for me, and it is my choice to carry the phone.

Jason on TNT points out GOOGLE does not manufacture the Nexus/Pixel phones. Well Holly breaking news. Apple and most other companies do the same thing.

I agree with +Jason Howell​. It's time Google put their stamp and name on their phones. It's time to make the "normal" user realise that android is not Samsung's product but a Google product with better hardware to support it like apple.

Thanks to Mr Torvalds, Google+ isn't a ghost town. :)
 
Setting up my new laptop. Am once again reminded that the crazy UI people continue to think that "DPI" is something meaningful. No it is not. The number of pixels matters. Not the DPI.

The new laptop has the same resolution as my desktop, but apparently because the laptop screen is smaller, gnome seems to decide on its own that I need an automatic scaling factor of 2, which blows up all the stupid things (window decorations, icons etc) to a ridiculous degree.

And obviously none of this is documented anywhere, nor are there any sane settings to edit it. Because "settings confuse people". So instead, you have to do this:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 1

because unlike having some UI in the gnome settings center, that confuses nobody.

What the hell is wrong with UI people? What insane person thought that it's a good idea to say "oh, you have a 13.3" QHD+ display, let's make it act completely different from your 28" QHD+ desktop display and waste all that precious screen real estate with stupid window borders and big fonts in your title bars?"

And especially if you have some heuristic tunable that makes random UI decisions for people, give me a simple setting in the control center that says "no, I really know better than you do".

But no.

Writing a G+ rant just to remind myself for next time this insanity happens.

I believe that Apple is moving consumers toward the "need/desire" for wireless charging with the removal of the headphone jack. It's the simplest(?) solution to not being able to charge while your headphones are plugged in.

Only problem is; how will they address the problem of it needing to be able to be mobile and charging at the same time?

OH WAIT, I've got it! They're going to introduce "Wireless Wireless Charging Stations" that go with you anywhere you want, up to a range of 10 feet, allowing you to listen to your wired headphones and wirelessly charge wirelessly!

And if you need more distance for charging, there will be the "Wireless for the Wireless Wireless Charger" that will give you an additional 16 GB, uhhhh, I mean 10 more feet of distance.

Ohhhhh Apple!!! 😜

I think they have not move to Fast Charging because it cuts he battery life but I agree with you hey will go wireless charging and talk about it like they invented the tech. For what it's worth I also believe it will work as advertise?

Now had the car been dolled up like in the movie then blame it on flux capacitor failure, THAT would have been funny.
