36 are Gtalk users. Of those 36, who appear online and active, I cannot talk to about 20 and that number is expected to grow in the coming days. Why? Because Google hasn't entirely killed XMPP Federation. I can see these buddies online; I can even see them online when they use the Hangouts app. If I attempt to send them an IM, however, it never goes through.
Not only does it conjure up all the leftover post-traumatic jitters from 9/11 – which for many of us will be there for the rest of our lives – it also makes clear that our Faustian bargain was completely bogus, and the devil never intended to hold up his end of the deal. We surrendered our rights to a government of war criminals, who promised us certainty and security in a world that offers none. We should have known better, and in fact we did. At the literal birth moment of American democracy, Benjamin Franklin summed it up in a single sentence: “Those who would give up essential libert[…]

Skeuomorphism is a word that everyone disagrees on what it means (or suggests it means all of the above), but is often used to discriminate apps that use realistic textures for the sake of joy, beauty, and delight. When you’re talking about an app that uses realistic textures, call that “theming” or “skinning” because before last year, that’s what we called it, and that’s what it is.
If you’re hiring for technical positions, hiring remotely is the best-kept, blindingly obvious secret for finding people.
Finally I had to drop out of college, as I wasn't attending any class at all. But, a new person had born inside me. I started learning about how people are building companies around the world. I would spend hours on computer, making notes of how organizations like Zappos, Google and TED are impacting world in different ways. All this lead me to either join a creative gang, or start something new. I followed the second and riskier thought.
You would be surprised at how much processing some databases do just to tell you that the thing you queried for doesn’t exist in the database. A data structure that sometimes can help reduce wasteful work like this is a Bloom Filter.
Consider walking down a candy aisle at a drugstore. If you have a craving for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, you know how to find it. Of course, it’s the bright orange wrapper with a bubbly yellow word on it. Instant. Most candy bars have very distinct brands which can be instantly recognizable at a glance of the entire aisle. This should be precisely how you approach your app icon design.
The problem is that school drives all that curiosity out. Instead of letting you explore things for yourself, it tells you that you have to read these particular books and answer these particular questions. And if you try to do something else instead, you’ll get in trouble. Very few people’s curiosity can survive that. But, due to some accident, mine did.

A British study called One False Move, investigating the mobility of children, found that the average eight-year-old saw its ‘home habitat’ shrink to one-ninth of its size within a single generation. In 1970, 80% of British kids 7 or 8 years of age were allowed to go to school unsupervised; by 1990, this figure had dropped below 10%.

But looking at the profiles of other people is even more revealing. It’s a visual representation of someone to an extent that hasn’t been achieved before. And it’s created without the user having to do any work beyond what they’ve already done (taking the initial picture). These profiles say a lot about a person — all without saying a word.
So to sum up, this video highlights the following ground-breaking features: 1. A laptop that basically looks like a MacBook Pro, and which is made out of the same material. 2. A 1990′s era volume wheel that sticks out of the side of the computer and has “interaction gravity” so you can… interact with it. 3. Red highlights. 4. A multi-touch trackpad, which Macs have had for years 5. A backlit keyboard that has an LED under each key, which I’m sure is great for battery life. You aren’t going to beat Apple by copying their designs.
