Watch out Cast'ers!

Update to JavaScript Strict Mode
Google Cast is moving to Chrome 43 in a future update, which adds stronger restrictions for interacting with attributes of DOM elements when using JavaScript "strict" mode.

Most modern browsers have been enforcing this "strict" behavior for some time.

Developers of Cast receivers can do either of the following:
• Don’t overwrite read-only properties on DOM attributes, or
• Turn off JavaScript "strict" mode in parts of the application that do.

If your JavaScript code does not handle "strict" mode correctly, a JavaScript error is thrown in this format:
"Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property XXXX of #<XXXXX> which has only a getter"

You can read up more about this change in Chrome: http://goo.gl/Qs6oLY

Happy Casting!

To say it with Grumpy Cat: GOOD.

Google Container Engine is now in beta.

Container Engine makes it easy for you to set up a container cluster and manage your application. Because it’s built on #Kubernetes, you can move workloads or take advantage of multiple cloud providers. Learn about pricing and new features that give you more control of your container cluster: http://goo.gl/8aOi4s___To say it with Grumpy Cat: GOOD.

More Material Design with Topeka for Android

#Materialdesign is a new system for visual, interaction and motion design. We originally launched the Topeka web app as an Open Source example of material design on the web.

Today, we’re publishing a new material design example: the Android version of Topeka. It demonstrates that the same branding and material design principles can be used to create a consistent experience across platforms.

I'm a bit bummed out that Bethesda chose to ignore Android (and it's huge audience of users all over the world) and release #FalloutShelter on iOS only.

Geez...time to charge the 'ol iPad. And yes...I will most definitely try to buy the Collectors Pipboy Edition. Bethesda just needs to shut up and take my money!

EDIT Apparently there will be a version for Android someday. More information later (but it doesn't look like it's launching soon: https://twitter.com/DCDeacon/status/610301792979546112)

Solving urban problems, one at a time. Let's start with lotus-effect coated sidewalks :D

Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work! ___Solving urban problems, one at a time. Let's start with lotus-effect coated sidewalks :D

So I guess you should stick to "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn't."

If it's on the Internet, it must be true. Right?

The study was 100 percent authentic. My colleagues and I recruited actual human subjects in Germany. We ran an actual clinical trial, with subjects randomly assigned to different diet regimes. And the statistically significant benefits of chocolate that we reported are based on the actual data. It was, in fact, a fairly typical study for the field of diet research. Which is to say: It was terrible science. The results are meaningless, and the health claims that the media blasted out to millions of people around the world are utterly unfounded.

Our paper was accepted for publication by multiple journals within 24 hours. Needless to say, we faced no peer review at all.___So I guess you should stick to "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn't."

This is really neat - check out #Nitinol  - aka Memory Wire - which allows you to bend it into any shape you like, but when you put it in hot water, it will return to its original shape. What magic is this!? It is not magic, it is #Science. Learn more on #Instructables to make your own (and the science behind it): http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Form-Memory-Wire-Nitinol/
