Simplicity at the expense of feature richness is not a virtue. Dear google, what kind of "mapping" software doesn't allow you to save a custom route?
In general I think software has gotten worse, not better with this cult of simplicity and A/B testing. There's a drive to release new versions constantly instead of making software better and more reliable. We used to have user stories and some attention to the tasks, even complex tasks, people want to accomplish with software. That seems to have gone away. Simple things on the road, like wanting to interrupt a trip to get coffee (or even find coffee) and then return are not supported. Do PMs actually use their software in situ? - Todd Hoff
I love simplicity, minimalism and exhaustive A/B testing on the one hand, and powerful and sophisticated features on the other -- the trick is to find the optimal balancing point between these two demands. One thing is for certain: you can't please everyone. - Sean McBride
If I have to be displeased I'd rather be displeased with real features. - Todd Hoff

Took the day off to visit my boss in the hospital. Sophie wants to come with me so it will be a great ride to the city.
Wouldn't that qualify as a business trip? ;-) - Nils Sandin
It is, but since I brought Sophie along I just took the day off. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Crash: What We Know - NPR http://www.npr.org/blogs...
"What complicates the issue is that this type of missile, known in Russian as Buk, is mobile — it's meant to move around a battlefield. That makes it more difficult to determine the point of origin. Ukraine and Russia have this type of missile system, and there's speculation that the rebels also possess it, as well." — so the missile type doesn't rule out any of the factions - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"There had been no warnings about that area from the FAA, nor from the U.N.'s International Civil Aviation Organization." — the FAA restriction was regarding the airspace over Crimea, not Donetsk - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"Earlier this year the Federal Aviation Administration banned American air carriers from flying over part of the disputed area between Russia and Ukraine over safety concerns, but the area where Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashed on Thursday was not included in this restricted airspace." — Time http://time.com/3001874... - Victor Ganata

Canadian Netflix Hell - http://gizmodo.com/my-life...
Canadian Netflix Hell
"I'm American, but I've spent a big chunk of the last eight years in Canada, first for affordable education, and then for love. Canada is a gentle foster motherland, suckling me on her polite, maple-flavored bosom. But Netflix here is some bootleg FUBAR bullshit." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"My long (non)-national nightmare with Canadian Netflix began two years ago, when I left the U.S. for Toronto. I'd lived in Montreal years before, but Netflix streaming wasn't a thing then. [Sidebar: I can't even imagine how shitty a Netflix: Quebec would be if the province ever fulfilled its separatist goals. It would literally just be the movie C.R.A.Z.Y. and old clips of Bon Cop Bad... more... - Ken Morley
"I tried to stave off my homesickness by introducing my Canadian friends to the liberal '90s screwball utopia of The West Wing, but apparently Canada hasn't forgiven Sorkin for Studio 60. Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Louie all vanished north of the 49th parallel. Altogether, Canada has fewer than half the available titles that the U.S. version of Netflix offers, which is probably... more... - Ken Morley
"Most Canadians I know get sweaty palms about jaywalking but don't think twice about rerouting their Netflix to the south, because if there's anything worse than not having something you want, it's not having something you want and watching your neighbor enjoy it" - Ken Morley
"fewer than half" - where's the data supporting this percentage statement? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
"My friends were referring to the 10,000 titles that American Netflix users enjoy, in contrast to the options available on Netflix Canada, which currently amounts to about 4,000." - http://www.torontosun.com/2014... - Andrew C (✔)
I used to bemoan the (relative) lack of choice on Netflix. Then, I stopped watching it so much. Now, it's just right :) - Brent Schaus
Andrew, SEAN FITZGERALD, columnist, states the numbers but doesn't cite a source. - Micah
Netflix. The stuff people in the sticks can only dream of. (Friends living in these things called cities are raving about it.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
It's good for old series, but the movies pretty much suck. Also, the interfaces on various boxes (e.g. Apple TV, TiVo, Roku) also kind of suck. Come to think of it, I should really cancel my subscription. The TV I spend the most time watching is SF Giants games. - Professor A.I.

Funky Science Textbook Illustrations From The 1970s | Flashbak
"HAVE a look at a 1977 grade school science textbook. Each page features distinctly seventies children in distinctly seventies environments. A beautiful thing to behold. Today’s textbook illustrations are much more professional, polished and detailed than they used to be. Many of you may remember that most 70s textbooks were low on informative illustrations and graphics, but chock full of pictures featuring a melting pot of children doing God-knows-what. Today’s science schoolbooks are brimming with amazing pictures and lush illustrations; whereas, my old science book had pictures of kids blowing bubbles or watering plants." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
