So, about this Googler’s manifesto.
I wish such clear words would have come directly from Google, but I get that they are limited in what they can say publicly.

I hacked my body for a future that never came | The Verge
"Dangerous Things sells a variety of other chips and magnets. Founder Amal Graafstra told me that sales had been going up, until the 2016 presidential election — when no one bought anything for a full week.

“I think one way or another, people lost faith in humanity, and in a sense lost faith in the future."

X-Box Co-pilot mode
This is super interesting. Kaddi enjoyed our co-op plays in Mario Galaxy where I was the main player and she just helped me out. And apparently this kind of setup should also be possible with the steam link and steam controller set up. I have to investigate.

George W. Bush’s best-selling book of paintings shows curiosity and compassion - The Washington Post
I think GW was one of the worst presidents in recent time but this is interesting. I wish he'd staid out of politics and painted instead. He might have been happier, too.

“Hello, (real) world!” in PHP in 2017
There's some truth here. Web development became a lot more complex in recent years. Though the PHP in that might still be the simplest part of it all.

20 Years Ago, Starship Troopers Showed Us What Happens When Fascism Wins
I think I should rewatch this movie. I saw it in the cinema when it came out and found the cheerful reaction of the audience the worst of it. Even back then people didn't seem to recognize the fascism they were cheering at. Or actually, maybe they were but liked it.

Putin’s Real Long Game
An interesting article. I believe Russia is a more dangerous threat to western democracy than islamic terror. However I doubt Trump will turn out as the defender of the west as this article hopes for. He has neither the wisdom nor values for that.

Why I finally ditched Jira | Hacker News
Even though Jira has grown on me, I still don't like it very much. The Hacker News comments have a few interesting alternatives...

Can this flat-pack truck save the world?
Interesting approach to the truck. Low cost and easy to assemble and maintain. Not that the world really needs more petrol powered trucks.

Asia’s Cult of Intelligence
"In Japan, for example, teachers are held in high esteem and normally viewed as among the most important members of a community. [...] The profession of teaching is one that is seen as being of central value in Japanese society and those who choose that profession are well compensated in terms of salary, pension, and respect for their knowledge and their efforts on behalf of children. [...] The problem is not really with our educational system; it is with our educational culture."

Wot I Think: Always Sometimes Monsters
Sums up what I think about this game pretty well. Overall I enjoyed the 11 hours I spent with it.
Weird though, that I end up playing lesbians so often recently :-)

A neuroscientist explains what may be wrong with Trump supporters’ brains
This adds at least another interesting dimension at explaining the major fuck up happening right now, even though I wouldn't say it's the whole story.

[TUTO] Enable Adoptable Storage on MM | Sony Xperia Z5 Compact
Kinda works with my Z3C. It effectively split my SD card into two partitions and I can now manually move Apps completely(!) to one of them. Not as cool as real adaptive storage, but close enough.

German police has a racism problem, too. I don't think that surprises anyone here. But it's not a talking point here - everyone just points at America and pretends things are better here.

Please don't send me Smart Replies
This was my first reaction when I saw the feature in the keynote. The feature would be nice for Android Wear, but for real conversations SwiftKey's word prediction is good enough and maybe even as far as it should get.
