"YouTube Kids is "the first Google product built from the ground up with little ones in mind." As a dad of three kids six and under, two of whom who read fairly well and a third just trying to keep up, it's exciting to see them become the focal point for an entirely new interface." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Awesome. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
This is a fantastic app. One thing not mentioned much in other reviews is the custom-trained speech model that will recognize my 2yr old saying "Elmo" which is just amazing. - Steve and 4 other people

If Facebook ever wants to release Friendfeed from its Data Centers and those that know how to keep it going willing to help transfer it, I'd be willing to help setup hosting and keep the servers running.

Emotional Design Fail: Divorcing My Nest Thermostat [Nielsen Norman Group] - http://www.nngroup.com/article...
Emotional Design Fail: Divorcing My Nest Thermostat [Nielsen Norman Group]
Article from Feb 22, 2015 by Kara Pernice: "Summary: Don Norman’s 3 levels of emotional design (visceral, behavioral, and reflective) helped me understand how my pure love for the Nest thermostat morphed into abhorrence. I was a proud early adopter of the unique, cool, and pretty device. It helped me save energy, and communicated to me. But things went bad when it let me down emotionally." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
More: "[...] When I turned the dial to increase the heat to 66 degrees, rather than responding by making the house warmer, or by informing me that it is now working toward this, it read, "in 1 hour and 20 minutes 66 degrees until 10:00PM.” The next day the house temperature plummeted to a punishing 50 degrees (I realize I may be spoiled) for no reason I was privy to. Here, by the way, is another usability heuristic not heeded: visibility of system status. Try as I might, it won’t listen." - Stephen Mack
She details how with her Nest, she can't actually set the temperature. I'm not a Nest owner, but that's shocking to me. Really? It won't let you actually switch on the heat or the A/C? It thinks it knows better than you what the temperature should be? - Stephen Mack
(Hidden motive: Part of why I'm posting this is because Cristo hates Jakob Nielsen so much that I'm hoping this will irk him into reactivating his FF account just to berate the user design model being leveraged here.) - Stephen Mack
I never had any trouble setting my Nest to the temperature I wanted, reliably -- barring when my furnace actually broke. Every once in a while, it would take a small change in habits a bit too far, but it was trivial to go in and readjust the schedule. You can also turn that function off, and set it all manually. My only beef with them right now is that when I got my new furnace (almost... more... - Jennifer Dittrich
I never had a problem with mine. - Glen Campbell
Haven't read through the entire article yet but I have two and have had no issues changing temps. - rønin
So this writer is divorcing for all the wrong reasons. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Pretty much. It's like she never even bothered to read the simple documentation, much less the more complicated. When it says "in 1 hour and 3 minutes" it is telling you how long it is likely to take for your house to reach that temperature. It visually indicates (by showing red, blue, or white) in the meter whether the furnace/ac is currently active, or passive (the picture shown is the AC, in an active state.) - Jennifer Dittrich
@Stephen you can set the temperature with your Nest. (Of course) - Louis Gray

Fitbit Acknowledges Latest Devices Are Causing Rashes, Advises To “Give Your Wrist A Rest” | TechCrunch
I think I'm going to stick with my Ultra. - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Oh man. - Stephen Mack
No issues for me yet with the new Surge (which I've been meaning to write up a review of), but this sucks. - Stephen Mack
They have this page of guidelines to "keep it clean" and "keep it dry" and "give your wrist a rest": https://www.fitbit.com/product... - Stephen Mack
Also, wearing the bands a little looser on the arm can help with the rash issue. Still using the Flex here - until the Apple Watch is out. Got the Tory Burch metal bracelet for it and stopped having rashes all together. - Bash
There was a similar issue with the Fitbit Force last year and they ended up recalling it...and the CPSC was investigating issues with the Flex. http://www.nytimes.com/2014... I am so glad I did not buy a bracelet and opted for the Fitbit One. If there is nickel in those things, it could have been really bad... more... - April Russo (FForever!)

Ingress: The Incredible & Addictive Covert Game Being Played All Around You
Show all
"A little over two years ago, a small team within Google called Niantic Labs introduced Ingress, a game that adds a virtual reality layer on top of the entire world, which you can claim, defend or destroy for your cause - depending on which side you've chosen. And while I tested early versions of the game while it was developing at Google, and dabbled with it just after launch, I put it aside before jumping back in with both feet two months ago, when a pair of colleagues on my new team couldn't stop talking about it. And now I won't stop talking about it either. Simply put, in my view, it's the most well-designed, intelligently deployed concept I've ever seen for an immersive experience on mobile, which encourages you to get off your butt, explore the world around you, and find new people to help you achieve goals together. Every facet of the application, even while it seems mysterious, is designed to help you get out of house, to explore new crannies of your neighborhood (and beyond)... more... - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
I have to say I find it totally impenetrable. The UI confuses me no end, and I'm just completely flummoxed by it. - Stephen Mack

@Stephen come with me some time, and I can teach you! - Louis Gray
OK - I am ingressing. I'm not sure I'm doing it right. - Brian Johns
Is there an Ingress room on FriendFeed? - Brian Johns
I hope you picked the right team, Sparky. Smurf or frog? - Stephen Mack
I'm afraid to say. Like my first credit card, I chose the one with the free t-shirt and the attractive booth babe. - Brian Johns
No problem. Depending on which one you chose, you're eitherpart of the team or someone to shun. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Can't wait to read the follow up story about the court case held in Louis's absence and his remorse for not opening this zip file. - Mark H
So zip files are dangerous too now? I'm dreading hearing what new zero-day exploit affects archive files. - Stephen Mack
Unzipping is unproductive and a waste of time. - Micah from FFHound!
Opening this on my Chromebook would actually be safe, but I'm not touching it. - Louis Gray
Hi friend google! But looking at those results, I don't see any where they say the zip itself is malicious -- just the executable files contained therein. - Stephen Mack

My Fitbit hasn't been syncing since 1:40 pm on Monday. So sad. Can't fix it. May have to get a new Fitbit. But my stats! #cries

You must've hit the limit. Poor little Fitbit was exhausted. - bentley
Did you contact customer service? Sometimes they work miracles. - Bruce Lewis
Isn't that what you're for, Bruce? :) - Louis Gray
Unfortunately not. I'm on probation because everything I've accomplished has a natural explanation. - Bruce Lewis
I'll be in S.F. week after next. I can shake your Fitbit and slap it a few times to see if that fixes it. - Bruce Lewis
To be clear, the miracle/probation part was not serious. I don't want to dissuade people from applying to jobs at Fitbit for lack of supernatural powers. And Fitbit and I are quite happy with each other. - Bruce Lewis
But here I am making jokes on a thread about your serious problem. This is another reason I'm not in Customer Service. I hope you find a solution. - Bruce Lewis
I fixed it! Just had to restart by holding down power 10-12 seconds while connected. Woo. - Louis Gray
I've had to do that a few times with my One. - Holly's favorite Anna

Christmas flood of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Over 22 inches (550 mm) of rain fell on the Eel River basin in a span of two days. By December 23, 752,000 cubic feet per second (21,300 m3/s) of water rushed down the Eel River at Scotia (still upstream from the confluence of the Van Duzen River), 200,000 cubic feet per second (5,660 m3/s) more than the 1955 flood, and more than the average discharge of the entire Mississippi River basin." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
I looked this up because I saw a rogue forecast (GFS model) for this weekend saying up to **25 inches of rain** for northern california. Insane, right? Inconceivable, right? And yet … something similar happened not that long ago. - Amit Patel

Twitter and FB, a little bit of G+ and Tumblr. - Melly
Livejournal. - bentley
not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO Boychick Devil
Feedly, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Oh, and Ello, from time to time. - Steven Perez from Android
Yeah I guess I should add that I do use Facebook to interact generally with family and a few friends. But Facebook's noise to signal ratio is too high for me to use it for much else. - MoTO Boychick Devil
plus.google.com, news.ycominator.com. I keep intending to use facebook but don't generally get to it. I caught up with Instagram yesterday, thanks to the fact that I'm only following something like 4 people there. - Bruce Lewis

G+ daily, Twitter 2-3 times a day, FB once or twice a day, but only really active on FF. (As with MoTO, FB's mostly for family. - walt crawford
Twitter and Google+. - Louis Gray
None. I'm a purist. - Steve C, Team Marina
Barry, I'm not sure what I meant by Web 2.0, other than there are sites that have some social component to them, but are not really thought of as social networks, e.g. Yelp. - Cristo
What are people's impressions of Ello? - Cristo
Wasn't ready for beta. Very few features at beta. More now, but no users. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Just Twitter (for light use) -- not Facebook or Google+. Still waiting for any other service to catch up with Friendfeed -- and for the next generation of a Friendfeed-like service to appear -- someone is bound to develop it. - Sean McBride

Facebook - Ozgur Demir
I just checked out the latest Twitter analytics features -- great stuff. A future version of a Friendfeed-style social media platform should include analytics at this level (and better) for all individual and group feeds (*especially* group feeds, which are ripe for hundreds of analytic snapshots). - Sean McBride
Sean, I'm interested in your feaure list. - Cristo
Italian Friendfeed like service: http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... - Miki

Heisenberg -- give me a few days to find time to compile it -- the notes are scattered across six or seven years. - Sean McBride
My admiration and love for the brilliant design of Friendfeed continues unabated -- in fact, it keeps increasing as I compare it to new inferior services. - Sean McBride
Has everyone noticed that Friendfeed is often more efficient than email for private one-on-one and group communications? Much less cruft. Much swifter. Much easier to browse over time. Also superior to text messaging in many cases, in terms of interface. - Sean McBride
Sean, you should look at Slack if you have a group of people that interact. It's better than FriendFeed for a slightly different application area. - Cristo
Will do. - Sean McBride
First, quick impression of Slack (I need to look at it much more carefully): conversations on Friendfeed pages are much easier to navigate and read. - Sean McBride

Where would you post stats about how most people aren't on Google+? On Ello of course. https://ello.co/dredmor...
An excellent find, Amit. Golden. - Micah from FFHound!
To be fair, posting it on G+ would have significantly skewed the G+ numbers upwards. - Andrew C (✔)
Maybe that's why I'm (mildly) fond of G+ and its OA community: Like Friendfeed, it's small enough to not suffer from the Facebook/Twitter overload problem. As for Ello...what? - walt crawford

I started feeling ill on Sunday evening. Have spent most of my time in bed sleeping on-and-off since then. Total steps taken today and yesterday is less than 500. Whoever went into work sick last week and gave this to me: I'd like your address so I can send you some glitter from that new site.
Aw, I'm sorry hun. That's total ass. We had people doing that last week, spreading their disease. I'm still shocked that I haven't come down with anything yet. Famous last words, eh? Keep taking it easy and get better soon! - Hookuh Tinypants
And that glitter site is pretty much the greatest idea ever. I have a list. I may be working my way through some glitter deliveries this year... - Hookuh Tinypants
:( - Meg VMeg from Android
I'll send someone glitter for only $4.00. Should I open a competitive business? I'm sure I could make more $ doing this than my librarian salary. - Marie
oh, shoot, sorry. i threadjacked. get well soon! - Marie
Hookuh, thanks! I think one more night of rest and I'll be mostly past this. - Stephen Mack
Marie, threadjack away! In fact, this thread is now about Glitter the 2001 Mariah Carey film. - Stephen Mack
:( Sorry Stephen! - Louis Gray
:( feel better soon. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
:( - Katy S
Regarding the threadjacking, new sites should compete on features - not price. Your new site should offer something that goes "pop!" and spreads the glitter around when opened. Set yourself apart from those boring old version 1.0 glitter bomb companies. - Brian Johns
Sorry, Stephen. Hope you'll recover soon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Ugh, sick people should stay home! Get well soon, Stephen. - Jenny H. from Android
Sounds like you're getting plenty of rest. Hope you're feeling better soon! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Oh no! Lmk if you need anything. Mil is gone so I can make daytime deliveries. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I hope you feel a lot better soon, Stephen. - vicster.
Thanks all, back at work today and I do feel a lot better (especially after the analgesic and coffee kicked in). - Stephen Mack

The Wife hates it when I call it "babysitting." She says when it's your own kids it's just "parenting." Whatever you call it, my shift started at 2:00 am. We drove around town and napped in the car from 2:20 until 6:00. Now we're reading the paper and playing with a strap on the car seat and waiting for the sun to come up.
Good luck today, Sparky! - Louis Gray
The days are fine. It's the nights. Wish us luck tonight. - Brian Johns
Good luck tonight, Brian. :) - Anne Bouey
We made it until 4:00 this morning before I had to take her out and about. Had about 3 feedings overnight until she decided she didn't want to go back to sleep. So we went out and about until 6:00. Now she's awake again and probably will be pretty active (and attention greedy) until her 30 minute nap at 9:30. - Brian Johns
I say the same thing, about parents "babysitting" or "watching" their own kids :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Adult Problems Suck. I Blame Drew's Cancer. #BlameDrewsCancer

"I quickly glossed over it during my first post of the year, when I said "Adult problems can be a real pain," but I'd be skirting around some big issues if I didn't go deeper on some very real drama that in years past would see me aggressively pounding the drum to draw attention to their pain, hoping to rally others to their cause. But as I get older, and, as a result, my friends do too, struggles with health, family, work or finance are hardly isolated - making it somewhat selfish to choose one cause against another. And that sucks." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet

A kid not sleeping led to me watching Sharknado 2 (The second one) this morning. Not quite as strong as the first, but the high points were higher and the cameos were great.
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray
Sleep > Sharks - Amit Patel
Sharknado 3 (Oh hell no) has Vanilla Ice - Amit Patel

California gull - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The state bird of Delaware is the Delaware Blue Hen. The state bird of Hawaii is the Hawaiian goose. The state bird of Rhode Island is the Rhode Island red chicken. The state bird of South Carolina is the Carolina wren. The state bird of Utah is the California gull. - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
One of these things doesn't match the others. Utah, get your own bird! - Amit Patel
Here's why Utah's state bird is the California Gull. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... (It also explains the name of Mormon crickets) - Louis Gray
We gave them the bird? - Brian Johns
Louis: interesting! Brian: haha! - Amit Patel
Looks like every seagull I've ever seen from Maine to Florida. - Anita Chamberlain
